    Holy crap, Katherine! You are looking damn good. You said the other day your clothes felt looser in the shoulders I think? Was that you? Mine are tighter.

    Canuck, are you planning on revisiting this s&e challenge yourself anytime in the near future? I think I'd like to take a month or two off from it and then do it again in late summer.
    Yes, I'll try it periodically throughout the year, but probably make modifications substituting another kind of meat or even salmon for steak a couple of times a week just for some variety. I try to periodize my training and diet experience to progressively better peaks two and sometimes three times a year. This month the focus is on body fat and I have been surprised with the strength increases.

    Unlike those on the Forum who are all in on the meat only diet, I would find it boring over the long hall. I like variety and really love vegetables, fruit and big mix veg salads. So I'll mix it up during the year, I find its mentally healthy to have lots of variety.

    Looser in the shoulders as the fat padding goes away.

    I wish I had all the money my mother spent on supplements over the years.

    Your mileage may vary.
    Understood.

    Also, happy belated birthday, and kudos on your progress pic, you look terrific.

    I was on the ZIOH site for a while, so the whole steak and eggs thang is something I know I'd enjoy, and do well on. I just need to get back on track.

    Yeah, I tried out the ZIOH forum for a little while but the two things that bugged me were Charles insisting that muscle meat only was the best, nose to tail eating was silly, and that grass fed was a waste of money. Funny how he's changed his tune on the last one since getting a sponsorship from USWellness Meats.

    I've been lurking in here for a while & am really tempted to give this a go, but....

    I mean I've been primal since March 2012. There's a part of me that just can't deal with the idea of not eating vegetables!!

    I definitely only view them as an accompaniment to the meat & fat, but I always have SOME kind of vegetable. Whether it be half an avocado with my chicken or a bed of spinach for my steak, there's always SOMETHING.

    I feel like that's something I just can't let go of that is so ingrained in what I eat that I must always eat vegetables.

    I think I will keep lurking & pondering

    Hi everyone! I am lurker to this thread so I thought I should come out of lurkdom (if there is such word ) and introduce myself. I have been on steak & eggs for 2 weeks and have dropped 8 lbs. I actually eat lamb as my main source of meat with occasional turkey and salmon and of course eggs, butter, ghee, EVOO, CO. I know most of you lift heavy weights. I am back to lifting after 8 weeks break. Right now I am doing more endurance type of lifting (high reps low weights) and I workout to exercise DVDs. I also do lots of walking every day (1 hr).
    I am combing this with JUDD (alternative day fasting). I have DD (down days) at around 500 cal and up days anywhere from 1500-1900 cal. I am 124 lb right now with 20% body fat (I don't know how accurate my scale is, but I do have some body fat in middle that needs to go). My goal weight is 115-120. I wonder about the re-feeds for me. I had one today but it was a little disaster. I just overate carob chocolate that I made. I was planning on having some veggies and white fish and lots fruits, but it did not turned out this way. I wonder if re-feeds are necessary at my weight. I was really craving carbs today even thought my re-feed was not due till Friday (I think it is pre-menstrual cravings that made me go crazy on carbs). My carb cravings disappeared completely since starting s & e 2 weeks ago, but today I really went over my limits. I am looking forward to going back on protein tomorrow.

    I totally understand. Perhaps the idea of 4 weeks is a bit daunting. Why not give it a try for 3 or 4 days and see how you feel.
