I don't understand it either but I can't bring myself to eat it. The same goes for the "beef" and the deviled ham and the spam. .Just can't do it.

oh my goodness. I missed so much....

I went to dinner with some friends last night. I ordered the new york strip and gave away the "potato, cheesy, broccoli risotto". They sliced it real thin and presented it in a feathered circle. I really think it was only half a steak and I was still hungry when I left. (Luckily it wasnt my turn to treat.)

Just chillin right now with a big bowl of ground beef. Gonna go back through the thread to see whats happening!

Hey Al,

Do you brown all of that beef, just like you are going to add hamburger helper or make sloppy joes? Then eat it like it is a bowl of cottage cheese? That sounds interesting!! I may have to try that!

When you used fat, did you use muscle fat or suet? Im reading that the muscle fat tastes better but the suet holds up better. Im planning to use the coffee grinder too! then I was thinking of setting them up in a muffin pan. I like the idea for the ice cube tray, since the portions are smaller. thanks for your help!

We need paleo for this. Lisa got real sick with the green tea, possibly drinking too much. causes bood sugar to drop??? I think she said to work you way up.

I actually like the canned chicken. i dont prefer it, but its a welcoming change. It's salty, and has the texture of the chicken you would eat in a can of noodle soup.

So it seems that I have 2 new things to try out... canned chicken and browning lean beef. Do you brown those lean beef or get the regular "fatty" beef and just drain out the fat?

I am not going to weigh myself until the end of this month... I'm not going to touch the scales or obsess over it!!

I think I will stick with 2 cups of green tea, then. I had 2 cups so far, and that tea is making me run to the bathroom to pee. I just remembered why I don't drink much tea but it tends to make me pee more frequently than drinking lots of water!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! Me too!! Seriously--I eat chick. and turkey (and ham!)--that's it! Before I ate ground beef a couple of weeks ago, I hadn't had red meat for years-not even a burger! And no way would I eat organ meat! I don't do seafood either! Seriously my fish consists of tuna and salmon-fresh and tinned! Oh yeah and cod in batter!!!!!! Hee Yuuum!!!! I'm weird!!

I just browned my beef in a pan-don't need oil cos it has enough-pretty disgusting if you don't wash the pan straight away!!!! The one I got was 20%fat! And yup I just ate it right out of a bowl--it's soo good, real comfort food, no comparison between it and chick. or tuna!! I have to stay away!!

Lean ground turkey is good too if you don't want the fat of the beef!! It's drier tho! It's hard enough to get here!!

Thanks! I will run to the store tonight and pick up a package of 20% fat beef and drain it. I have this nice strainer that I use to strain tuna.

I wonder how tuna and beef will taste if mixed together.... nah!

OMG> . I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth!!!!

I do my ground beef too and I sneak a little minced onion and a little ground pork sausage every once in a while. . I drain and rinse it and it has virtually no fat. If you get the fresh ground pork sausage from the butchers. . it is very, very good and ads just enough kick to the burger that you'll want to eat the whole thing (I've also used some of the others too)!!! I can't stand the grease so I have to rinse mine! Great with mustard. or hot sauce. . . MMmmm. .now I'm hungry thinking of it. .i swore it off for a few days. .so I'll delight in my chicken. . I'm grilling up 10 pounds tonight. .Lemon/Pepper

When you mention pork sausage, are you talking about those breakfast sausage patties, like Bob Evans or Jimmy Dean?

Hey everyone! Thanks for the warm welcomes! I have a few questions – I’m thinking about doing stillman’s modified, with intermittent fasting thrown in (stop eat stop program). What do you guys think? I haven’t been eating a lot of meat lately, mostly processed food and carbs and fruit. So I think I need to break it up with some fasting before I inundate my body with so much meat.

Also, how much working out is everyone doing? I like to run and do the santa monica stairs, but I know my body will be burning fat already, so I don’t want to overdo it. Funny some of you should mention P90X. I have it sitting in my living room for the last several months and I have not touched it. I’m always down for a good work out, but P90X scares me! LOL

Wowzers! It is only the 2nd and I have missed so much here!

I am still hanging in there...Last week I lost about 4lbs, but according to the scale today they are all back.

These 4-6lbs are going to be the death of me...they just keep bouncing on and off and I cannot shake them!!

I am still doing cardio and strength training 6 days week. I love it...never thought I would say that. :blush:

Sounds like everyone is doing great! Keep it up!
