I can get through the Introduction and Discussion/Conclusions without too many issues, like most people. I actually enjoy reading the Materials and Methods because that's where you really get to see the experimental design.
The results is where I hit the wall. =/
Good grassfed clean cuts of meat! Grilled... fried.... broiled....
Homemade pure beef patty with blue cheese. Am drooling...
I love a good soup too, cooked until the beef falls off the bone, with plenty of veges....
I'm having a hankering for a nice lamb curry....
A good gourmet sausage - Australians have the best ones....
No pretend fastfood cardboard meats for me...
Now I really have to go eat something... guys!!!!!
I am into red meat for good. It's good. I simply cannot figure out life without red meat. A good steak is almost as pleasurable as... well, I am not going there. there are three perfect foods in this world: an Angus Cheeseburger, a Milky Way and a Vanilla shake.
Never....love it. It is mine!1 LOL
I like to be flexible in my protein choices : pork , beef, seafood ,poultry , lamb and I don't forget cheese .Dutch people are not called Cheese Heads for nothing :) and far too frugal to send you our RED meats even if you pay for shipping !!
While we're all drooling over our red meats, can anyone point me in the direction of a brand of bacon or sausage that doesn't use sugar or nitrites in the prep?
I'm having a heck of a time finding one.
If you're going to brag about a brand available only in Canada, you'll just have to send me some!!! You've been warned!!! ;0)
Do you have Kroger supermarkets? They have a brand (house brand--Private Selections) that's uncured, which means no nitrates. I've also gotten uncured bacon at health food stores.
Nope, no Kroger in Seattle -- I don't think they're in Washington at all. However, if one house brand has that, maybe they re-label for other house brands? I'll have to check it out. I have heard rumors of a butcher in West Seattle that makes his own, nitrite-free/nitrate-free/sugar-free sausage. I'm going to have to track him down, too.
I am trying to go 100% additive-free, chemical-free, sugar-free, starch-free on my diet and so far it seems to be really helping me feel better -- the MUCH lower blood glucose from going <= 50 gm of carbs/day is probably helping a lot, too!!! Now, if only I could lose some weight. Sigh. I quickly lost 20-lbs. but I've been plateauing for a month now. Fewer carbs, MUCH less insulin (less insulin necessary, I'm not withholding it at all), and more exercise = plateau? Really? Gah. Whoever said you don't have to count calories on a ketogenic diet never met my metabolism.
Way to go, girlfriend! I think calories do count. Too much protein will stall weight loss, too.
Bet you can find uncured in Seattle. Check out health food stores. I live in the sticks & we have it in several stores, different brands.
I am nowhere close to eating "too much protein" according to any of the protein requirements calculators I can find.
Calories still count with LC.
That's a hotly debated point. I find arguments on both sides all the time,
