Since I've decided to go all meat and some egg and dairy, went to my favorite meat market yesterday. Since we don't have grass fed year round due to our long and cold winters, this meat market sells the next best thing and closest to organic. It's run by a family who owns a farm in northern Alberta and sells their products along with other products such as eggs from the Hutterite farms which are free run (no free range here due to winters). They also make their own bacon and ham sausage.
So I bought pork chops, chicken, ham sausage, a kilo of bacon, eggs. I'm eastern european and seem to tolerate eggs, chickens and pork well and beef not so well. I will have a good beef steak whenever I crave one at a good restaurant but don't prepare it at home. I've also got some leftover home-made chicken veggie soup and buckwheat and pork sausage. I'm going to finish off whatever's in the fridge that isn't all meat/eggs slowly.
As it turns out I had a cup of cream and my pork and buckwheat sausage yesterday along with an 8 oz steak, caesar salad, greek yogurt and berries and still dropped over a lb. I don't usually eat this much but when I'm getting back on track, whenever I get cravings or feel hungry I reach for fat.
Made bacon and eggs this morning and was surprised that the bacon didn't stick to my frying pan. It was wonderful and it tasted more like pork belly than bacon (I presume because it doesn't contain a lot of sugar and additives). I then fried my eggs in the bacon fat and they didn't stick either. Wow, I'm buying bacon from them from now on.
Also, the pork and buckwheat sausage I had yesterday didn't seem to hurt my weight loss. The problem with all the ethnic foods I eat is that it's hard to figure out on Fit-day what all I'm eating.
So yesterday I ate: chicken soup with veggies (cauliflower, parsnips, brussel sprouts, onions, garlic), coffee, cream, steak, caesar salad, full fat greek yogurt, berries = 1858 cals, 111 gms fat, 60 gms carbs, 144 grams protein. Dropped only 1 lb. However, today I don't have any cravings and will be sticking more to just meat and eggs.
Oh, forgot that I also bought a kilo and a half of beef bones. So now I'm off to make bone broth. I seem to be able to tolerate that.
