    Ouch, up 3 lb. I will do better on my next carb-reefed day. I know I went overboard on fat yesterday and carbs of course.
    Hope the water weight will go down quickly.

    I eat steak, eggs and greens.

    Works just fine.

    Less than 30g net carbs, in ketosis. I'd rip someone's head off if I didn't eat a few green carbs a day.

It is another to say, "Yay, Walmart beef!" and "anybody who spends money of grass fed meat is an idiot". That was Mr. ZIOH's stand. Then, after getting the USWellness Meats link on his page, his policy changed to "Well, of course, it is a matter of personal preference and I would never try to influence what my readers buy." Maybe USWM gave him a lifetime supply of grass fed pemmican and he figured out what he had been missing.

    And, about eating nose to tail, he pulled out a quote from the arctic explorer Steffanson about the Eskimos throwing liver to their dogs to justify the fact that he (Mr. ZIOH) doesn't like liver. I read that quote to mean the exact opposite. In a climate where the health of your dogs means survival for the people giving them the liver means it was highly prized, not considered unfit for humans.
    Yeah, "doctrine" could change over there, for sure I try not to rag on them, there are some good folks over there, of course, some have gone, too.

    Wow, now that is something I have never heard of before. Worth a try for some variety.

I believe the level of toxins, use of antibiotics and growth hormones makes most of the typical meat products in grocery stores unhealthy to eat.
    I like to pretend the growth hormones are making my biceps bigger

    No worries, this is a completely normal weight gain after a refeed. It will quickly drop over the next two days and by the end of the week you will be down from your low point weight that you recorded just before your refeed day.

    In fact, my food bill for this week came to approx $80, with the eggs costing as much as, if not more than the steak.
    I do get my eggs free range; I live in a fairly rural area of Texas, and there are a number of families that raise their own chickens, and let the little devils run free, and eat bugs and whatnot. We get them for $2 a dozen.

    I am little concerned about doing a carb refeed...I'm in my 2nd week of S&E and haven't done one yet...I was wondering if it was necessary...or is it just in there so people can have a break/indulge carb cravings...what does the refeed do for you?

    I'm not sick of S&E and am worried that a refeed will leave me vulnerable to overeating either that day or the next...how do people feel the day after a carb up? I so a 20/4 IF will I be hungrier the day after? I can't have grains or starch so my refeed was going to be a roasted chicken (white meat only, no skin), a bunch of steamed asparagus, steamed cauliflower and a couple squares (3-4) of lindt 90 melted with strawberries...but if I don't "need" to do this to assist with fat loss, I might skip it...afraid it might be hard to shut the door once I open it if you know what I mean...

    so...what do you all think? why do we carb up and is it necessary...I'm leanish and looking to drop those last 5lbs/3-4%bf
