The steak and eggs diet works primarily because it's zero carb, high protein, and high fat. Sure, it's possible that 4-5% of the diet's efficacy comes from some sort of beefy magic that other protein sources can't match, but I kinda doubt it. To adhere to the steak and eggs diet is to get the 70s bodybuilding experience and enjoy the fat loss benefits of a cyclical ketogenic diet. Any further benefits of switching from grain fed Costco steak to grass fed gourmet meat would be, in my opinion, insignificant.
    I totally agree, my point was it is a one month trial to get the 70s experience and to not worry about grassfed or pastured beef. As a long term strategy though I encourage eating organic and local if possible. Getting to know where you food comes from and supporting small local farmers and growing your own food is not only good for your health it's good for the planet.

I'm really craving fruit today, so far I've already had an organic organge, apple and banana and I'll probably have some grapes and melon later. Dinner tonight will be another big salad, gluten free spaghetti with homemade marinara sauce and lean bison, some good Sonoma red wine and dark chocolate. Yum!

    Picked up some 'Rainbow Eggs' at the Whole Foods the other day. Pastured organic chicken eggs from a local farm. Different sizes and colors and very yummy!

    grapefruit
    cutie
    kimchi
    smoked salmon

    Rest day.

    Results so far:
    Down 2.2 pounds
    Lost 1/2" around the waist, 1/2" around the hips, 1/4" around the thighs. Wearing a size smaller jeans. Looking really trim. Some of that excess flesh seems to be disappearing.
    I hear you! They were quite weird even for me! HA!
    But, back on the steak and egg wagon today. Just got finished with another 2 hours weedwhacking on the side of a steep mountain, played ball for another hour or so with my son and pup, then came in and fixed myself 4 eggs fried in butter and 10 oz of steak. YUMMM!!

    While I was running around the yard like an idiot (racing my son to the ball across the yard) my jeans fell completely down around my knees! I'm gonna need some new clothes and/or remember to wear the dang belt! HA!

    EXCELLENT progress and enjoy your meals!

    Tom

    I'm reading along to see how it goes for everyone. And I'm interested to see what happens after you go back to eating normally. I'm considering taking on this challenge in the future, but am worried that the weight will come piling back on afterwards and it would all be for nothing. I'm also recovering from a back injury last weekend and so sticking with body weight for a little while.

    Keep up the great progress everyone!

    I think the problem with most weight loss diets is that they're not satiating. They don't satisfy you in the short term or the long term. And besides that, they make you eat foods you don't like (but the diet designer thinks you ought to like) instead of foods you like and your body needs. So the longer you stay on the diet, the more physiological and psychological deficits build up, and the bigger the crash when you either end the diet and go back to the "real" SAD world you never intended to leave, or when you fall off and into that downward spiral.

    I agree with you. I eat probably 90% primal, occasional dark chocolate or ice cream thrown in there. I'm interested to see what happens after the month and all of you return to Primal eating. Will the weight come back on when you increase your carb intake? I know I can't do low carb for long term because I become horribly depressed. I also have 2 growing kids (nearly 3 and just 5) that watch my food intake very closely so eating only 2 things all week would likely be met with strange responses. But if I see that it works for some people and they can keep off the weight, I might give it a go. I am 5'3.5" and 173lbs and would really like to finally lost all this fat. I can lift decently impressive numbers and play soccer once a week but can't seem to actually slim down.
