    I considered doing steak and eggs for a while but my second half does not agree. I am the main family cook and I don't want to impose that on her and the kids (still too young)
    This said, to me, one of the greatest thing is the absence of chronic stress (physical and psychological, especially about food) and the greater emphasis in moving for fun. I also put some emphasis on animal nutritious foods but it could get boring, I agree, so veggies and now starchy stuff are in. It may evolve into something else (maybe the Kitavan WOE who knows ? ) as long as we feel healthy and cool

      My boyfriend will only occasionally eat a steak. If I feed him more meat to help him build muscle when he exercises (he wants this), he ends up compensating by eating several meals of tortilla chips and salsa. He's not dedicated to it, which keeps him from making progress toward his goals.

      I cook enough extra of several different kinds of cooked meat, vegetables, and some soup, with a rice cooker full of rice, so if he doesn't want steak, he can just open the refrigerator and load his plate up with something else.

        I understand but you know, I spend time in the kitchen after a long day's work and cook for 4 usually so I cannot exactly be providing for different diets. When my kids are older and can cook for themselves (I will teach them as early as possible and not care too much about it!), I will probably try this WOE, sounds like I can survive on that no sweat for some time

          I enjoyed that conversation!

          I was thinking of 80g carbs from rice, then a medium sweet potato and just the usual veg I'd normally eat. Lean fish and left over pork roast.

            You've mentioned this before and I have to admit I know how he feels. I have several foods that absolutely cannot be in the house: the first of which is peanut butter. But tortilla chips would be in the top three, to be sure. I could eat a bag of tortilla chips in one sitting and ask for seconds. And I have before. I simply cannot have them in the house.
            I'm a weak man...If I give myself a few feet of leeway, I burst through all of my prohibitions.

              His problem is more like he has a low protein satiety threshold. Once he has had enough, he doesn't crave it until he is down again. When hungry he craves non-protein foods, like corn chips, salsa, and fake "queso" that comes in a jar.

                I think this weekend I'm going to eat a bag of corn chips or two...

                  I love them, but they would totally mess up my digestive system. So none for me.

                    Lean pork, rice and a banana for breakfast.

                        Gawd did I miss my meat and eggs!!

                        Funnily, I lost 2lbs overnight after my refeed. Gym later. Will have to walk there as my wife has the car today. 40 minutes each way.

                          That refeed day certainly was of benefit. Down to 247 lbs from 251.6 since the refeed last Tuesday. I can see myself extending beyond 4 weeks. Absolutely love it.

                            Tonight's dinner was a struggle to get down. Would kill for a juicy steak right now...

                              Agreed.
