Does Beef Make You Lose More
 
I remember a while ago there was a thread about how a lot of us found that eating beef makes us lose more.

I went and made a White Castle pie to help make my loss a lil speedier. Just wanted to see if people are still finding that to be true.:shake:

Hmmmmmm..... I've never heard this. I'm interested to see what others have to say. I do eat beef most nights for dinner, but I've never noticed whether I eat it or not makes me lose any more quickly.

Patience 08-31-2013 12:39 PM

I haven't been eating much beef, so am eagerly awaiting opinions.

Yes. Red meat definitely makes me lose faster than poultry or seafood. It may be the fat content, but even when I eat fatty fish, it's not as effective as beef or pork.

I have actually done a couple of "red meat weeks," during which I only ate beef and pork (lamb is too expensive) as my protein, and it helped me get past a little hump. I don't bother too often, though.

I've seen articles where bodybuilders will do a "steak and eggs" diet before a competition. But I wonder if they would have had just as much success if it were chicken too? I need a little bit of variety with my meats and will sometimes do days of chicken and eggs followed by days of steaks/hamburgers and eggs. I don't think it made much of a difference but I don't keep track of what I eat either.

Variety is what works best for me.

whether it does or not....
 
it certainly puts a smile on my face; and i have no beef about that. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Totally. There's nothing like 3 days straight of bunless cheeseburgers to feel skinny.

Ocean 08-31-2013 06:54 PM

If that were the case, I would be skin and bones by now! :D If it is possible to be addicted to beef, I probably am. I love beef and I generally have it for at least one meal a day. If I go a day without beef, I feel deprived.

I would fall into that category also. Eat a lot of beef here, also.

Everyone has a different experience...bet I'm the first to ever say that :laugh:

This thread really reminds me that I should go get some ground beef and starting having the cheeseburgers again for dinner. Been getting too fancy and should go back to basics :)

I keep reading this as "Does Beer Make You Lose More?" :laugh:

Brain cells maybe, but not fat.

I am a huge beef lover. If it does make me lose more, I can live and die off of it (and eggs).

mayleesa 09-01-2013 11:13 AM

salmon makes me lose, if I could stand to eat salmon everyday I would be a rail....maybe I should just suck it up and eat salmon everyday!

Patience 09-01-2013 11:19 AM

I'm going to feed my codfish to my chubby dog, and buy beef!
Standby for my report.

Natalia 09-01-2013 02:25 PM

This is way interesting! I've never heard this before, and I've always had too much variety in my eating that I wouldn't have been able to make any conclusions .

It is my fish-to-lose, too. :laugh:

My body will lose best when I eat something different every few days. After a few days it seems to get used to whatever it is I'm eating. Just changing from beef to salmon to poultry keeps the losses coming for me.

But, I sure wish I could afford to eat beef every day! :love:

Key Tones 09-01-2013 02:41 PM

That is interesting - I do suspect finding new approaches as being just the effect of changing the food. I hope it isn't true, but I am wondering...

princessmommy 09-01-2013 02:45 PM

I was stuck at 146-147 for Weeks then started eatting a hamburger patty topped with mayo, little onion and 1 tomato slice and Bam lost 1 lb overnight! Course it could have just been me mixing things up a bit from my regular food but I loved it Lol

jeaniem 09-01-2013 03:01 PM

Hmm, this has me thinking when I was at goal in 2010 I lived on chuck roast and ate lots of burgers and was rarely hungry and never even needed a snack. Now I eat lots of chicken and fish and always seem to be reaching for more food due to between meal hunger.

rndiane 09-01-2013 04:26 PM

I hope so, love beef. Tonight new York steaks on the grill!

2bfitb440 09-01-2013 11:30 PM

I always notice I lose better when I eat beef.
