    So this is the best thing about carb-up day.


    I shredded up all the left over chuck roast (~2lb) mixed in the broth and mashed any left over onions into the shredded beef. 8-10oz here along with a 4 yolk/3 white (I steal a yolk from my wife's omelet) scramble cooked in coconut oil and topped with a pat of butter.

    I was up about 1.5lbs after the carbfeast.

    Carb day is a day when I eat neither beef nor eggs. It's nice to take a break and eat fish. Plus it liberates more calories to be eaten of vegetables and fruits.

    Also, does anyone know of a correlation between nutrition and motivation? I spent all day yesterday WANTING to work out but since it was a "rest day" I didn't, but the house sure got cleaned! Before this experiment, the mere thought of working out just pissed me off. HA!
    Yes, this happens to me. If I'm eating well enough I really really want to move my body. Even to the point of doing dishes, sweeping and vacuuming. So far nothing has been able to get me to dust.

    Wait...what's the best part about carb-up day? The meal in that photo appears to be exclusively beef and eggs.

    The best part was all of the left over meat that I didn't eat because I was focusing on the plant items in the roast pot. I probably had about 4oz of meat each meal and was left with ~2lbs of leftovers. The pic is the breakfast using the leftovers.

    Ah I see. Though I take issue with that being the best part about carb-up day. The best part about carb-up day is beer.

    What I miss is cheese. There is no place on either a steak-and-eggs day nor a carb-up day for cheese.

    You could probably work some cheese in on carb-day. I usually eat small amounts of really good cheese with some bread and wine. I suppose if your thing is lasagna or quesadillas, then yeah. I guess there is no place for cheese this month.

    I don't want to cheat. The fat in the cheese would displace my vegetables and fruit that make up my carb day. I ate almost a week's worth of them on Sunday.

    I'm thinking if I were to repeat this after the first month, I would probably take a week off between as "cheese week".

    If you don't mind me asking, I have a personal question: how have things been coming out the other end? With no carbohydrate and no fiber, things are bound to come screeching to a halt. Feel free to not answer though. Some topics are probably left off-limits.
    Well, I guess I am weirder than most. The "other end" business has been business as usual. No plugging up or running out. HA!
