Things didn't work out quite as I planned. Breakfast (eaten at 10:00 am) went right through me. I didn't eat before dinner, because I was expecting to go out for a steak. However, my boyfriend was unable to mobilize to get ready to go until it was too late. So I figured I'd cook at 5:30 and serve dinner at 6:00, but I was so hungry I ended up munching on bacon, ham, and finally some more egg yolks.
I cooked myself a 9oz butterflied piece of tri-tip:
And then I was still hungry, so cooked another 5oz.
I guess I need to have some cooked beef in the fridge so I can eat it instead of pork products. Or maybe not let myself get so hungry, though it came up quickly.

Very interesting posts
And definitely an eating plan I could do

I needed something different, especially after yesterday when I was only able to keep down about 850 calories following a fast day. When I was doing ribeye I was eating too many calories. (fat & portion size) Now since I have been doing mostly tri-tip I have not been getting enough fat.
Lunch: pot roast of brisket. Not shown: 4 boiled egg yolks

Is pork loin an option for you?

I am doing the steak-and-eggs protocol that you will find in canuck416's 70s bodybuilder thread, modified to eliminate egg whites which I am sensitive to. It is supposed to last 4 weeks of 6 days of steak and eggs and 1 low fat carb refeed.

Realistically, pork loin is too low in fat to serve as a frequent source of protein for me without adding other sources of fat to my diet.

Last night I couldn't even think of steak. I ended up having bacon, ham, and cheese. Then a scoop of ice cream and one of sorbet, a bit of chocolate, and a meringue.
Today is going to be carb day anyway. I'm still not ready to eat steak again, but the ennui is lifting.
Late morning snack: semi-ripe sweet cherries
Lunch: kimchi, crabmeat, smoked salmon, grapefruit, homemade mayo

That plate of grapefruit and salmon and other goodies looks so good... !

I had a lot more fruit planned for the rest of the day, but I ended up craving fatty stuff, like chocolate, lol.

It's probably related to my dietary upbringing but those colors don't trigger hunger for me. My loss I guess.

What colors would?
