The Carnivore Diet

Are you tracking your caloric and macronutrient intake? I know you probably aren't posting an exhaustive list of what you are eating but it seems rather scant nonetheless. 

No. I never track calories or macros.  I haven't done that in close to 15 years.  I just eat intuitively.  

I am posting an exhaustive list.  What I type is what I eat.  It's actually quite a bit of food.  My mid-day meals are usually 200-400 calories (Which they always are.  I don't eat much during the day anyway; just black coffee, water and a small snack. to break the 18 hour fast around noon.  I've been doing this for along time.)  

My dinners are pretty large.  For example a 1lb strip steak is nearly 1000 calories; close to 125g or protein and 50g of fat.  a strip of thick cut uncured bacon is maybe 75 calories, 5-6g of protein and 5-6g of fat.  Grassfed butter is about 100 calories per tbsp and all fat.  

So a 1lb steak cooked in 2tbsp of butter, then drizzled with the butter afterwards is 1200 calories easily, all protein and fat.  6 strips of bacon is another 300 calories.  So that day was close to 2000 calories.  Thus far, I'm averaging about 2000-2500 calories daily.  Pretty average and it's nothing but protein and fat. 

Again, it's all about eating intuitively.  If I'm hungry I eat more meat. If I'm not, I don't. It's pretty easy. 

The thing to consider here is palatability and hyper-palatability.  So potatoes are good right?  How many baked potatoes could you eat in one sitting?  In one day?  4? 5?  6?  The number maxes out around 6.  Trust me, I've done a potato hack before.  But I digress...add butter and salt and you could do 10 no problem.  Slice them up and fry them and you could also do 10 easily.   The point is this:  When you're just eating food, real food, full of protein and fat with no sauces, not fried, not slathered in condiments, it becomes way easier to actually listen to your body's signals and those signals aren't getting tricked by anything else.   I know in the past, when I'm doing just meat and veggies, I can easily eat 2lbs of steak.  My body just needs it.  We've gotten so far away from actually listening to what our bodies need

I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention. It just appeared that you would be coming in way less than 2k. I've done the potato hack too but I really like potatoes! lol

Right on.

The potato hack was pretty eye opening to the concept of hyper-palatability and just reinforced what I already knew about over eating of fatty, sweet and salty foods.

Watch the documentary called the Game Changers.
may change the way you want to eat entirely .
as much as I am a meat eater , watching all the valid proof that eating meat especially red meat is probably the worst thing we can do for our body.
 
.
These documentaries are always biased one way or another. Take a look at The Magic Pill

Day 16.  19hr fast.  4 over easy eggs and 3 pieces of bacon at 1pm.  I slow cooked some beef shanks in the dutch oven all day, so dinner was a huge bowl of melt in your mouth,  shredded beef shank.  So damn good. 

No exercise today.  Gonna rest
