"FATTY MEAT" VERSUS "LEAN MEAT" ON A ZERO CARB DIET


I was recently viewing a conference given by Dr. Jayson, a lecture he has given on the most recent Low-Carb cruise. His subject was “out of the ordinary”, not considering the usual MACRONUTRIENTS such as carbs, fat and protein which has been disputed so many time but, interestingly, it was about the importance of getting adequate quantities of MICRONUTRIENTS, especially in regard of low-carb diets.

“Food should be medicine” he says and most diseases are a consequence of eating low-nutritious food items. He travelled the world and studied diets of different population, all this to gather information why some regions are in better health then other. Micronutrients deficiency is epidemic in today’s world and will ALWAYS, especially in long-term, bring up health issues.

He began his lecture by nicely pointing he is not recommending any particular kind of diet, including Paleo type, as the point he wanted to make is that for a diet to work, it is important it contains the most nutritious dense food available. His theory is when one is not loosing weight, this means his diet do not provide an adequate array of micronutrients: or it is not provided by the food items or some of the said food items contain substances preventing the absorption of the nutrients. He insists on the effect of “processing” food on the quality of the said food and how marketing makes us believe they are healthy.

For myself, the most interesting point from his conference is what he said about eating fatty meat versus having lean meat.

In an ideal world, everyone should eat “organic grass-fed” meat. Mainly to cut down on unwanted chemicals such as growth hormones and antibiotics, which are given to the animals and, not the least of all, not to change the “natural’ fat profile of the meat “nature” has created for us.

As we know, animals fed a grain diet, instead of grass, do end up with a muscle fat content 10 % higher. “That’s all good” you could think if you follow an high fat low-carb diet. But not necessarily…

The reason being this extra 10% of fat content will end up being made of “polyunsaturated high omega-6 fats”, the type of fats, which are pro-inflammatory and is the basis of much pathology in the human body.

The other big reason is unwanted chemicals in animals feed usually end up accumulating in the animal fat tissues and, so, in our fatty steaks…

Interestingly, Dr. Jayson advice anyone that cannot find high quality grass fed meat, to look for “lean meat”. This is a big step after repeating for so many years to everyone on Zero Carb they should look for fatty cuts of meat…

This way, he says, there is less exposure to high omega-6 intake and fat-accumulated chemicals. Of course, he then suggests replacing the missing fat of these lean cuts by “extra fat”, this time from clean sources such as butter, lard or even coconut oil.

I think this can be very interesting for folks like us with a Zero Carb approach. First, it can improve the quality of our food items and so, reduce exposure to unwanted chemicals.

So if one purchase “grain fed regular meat”, he suggests replacing chicken tights with chicken breast, choosing beef filet over any other fatty cuts, ect…

I think his point of view is worth being considered. Not that it has to be done all the time but it certainly can be an option from time to time to create variety.

Anyway, if you have time have a look to his conference. You will learn a lot about what can be considered “quality food” in today’s world. This makes a nice change over recommendations about the suppose “healthy diet” our authorities are pushing on us, and is a serious “eye-opener”.

Day 38 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had a real bad day. I had cravings out of nowhere. The day started off good, but then later in the day when it was time to go home from work things started to go amiss. I had the urge for something sweet. I don't know if it was related to the crust-less fried chicken or not. I have my suspicion. I do find it hard to believe, but you never know. I have made a decision to give chicken a rest for awhile. All forms of chicken. I will try to concentrate mainly on beef and occasional pork in the form of chops and bacon. I will also try not to eat sausage unless I make my own with ground beef and a few spices. I will continue to eat eggs, but mostly on the weekends or a quick meal for emergencies.

I made it through the day without messing up, but it was hard. I really hate to have to go through that. Just when I thought I might be over the hump, I get a good slap in the face. I am defiantly awake. I had a feeling I was getting ahead of myself and now understand that I still needed to focus day by day. Saying it and living it are 2 different things. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal   -5 large smoked chicken thighs (last of it)

2nd meal   -3 eggs over easy and 1 large pork chop

Thanks,

Connor

Day 37 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had a really good day. I am finding out that work is the easiest part of zero carb for me. I have a great routine. I basically just drink plain coffee throughout the morning and eat my 1st meal when I feel like it. I don't have a scheduled meal break so I eat when I want and I usually just eat at my desk and avoid the break area where all the temptations are located.

After work I felt a little lazy and did not want to cook anything or eat leftovers, so I bought 6 pieces of fried chicken from Popeye's. I skinned them and made sure to take off all the crust. It was very good and cheap. I paid only $3.00 plus tax. Every Tuesday they have a 2 piece dark meat special for .99 cents.  I don't feel that I will have any problems with eating this type of chicken as long as I remove the crust. The only thing is that I love chicken skin because it is high in fat and tastes great. I won't make this a habit, but an occasional meal if I am feeling lazy. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal   -12 oz of mixed grilled meats

2nd meal   -6 pieces of fried chicken (crust removed)

Thanks,

Connor

Day 36 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

I had a real good Monday. Work keep me busy and my mind off of food. I am anticipating the Christmas holiday. Tomorrow is our office party and we will have brisket and ham among other things. I should be safe. I will load up on the brisket. The last time we had brisket I asked for the fat that was being carved away and it was really good. I am pretty sure that I will be a my moms for the actual holiday. I will be sure to take a ham that I will cook myself.

I continue to feel better everyday about this way of eating and hope that the new year brings more calm for me. I want to be able to report that I am losing weight on a slow steady pace and that carb cravings are a thing of the past for at least the most part. That day will come, I know it will. I am dedicated to make that happen. I just try to take it day by day. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal   -12 oz of mixed grilled meats

2nd meal   -14 pork meat balls in clear pork broth (no starch in the meatballs)

Day 34 & 35 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had a real nice weekend. I ended up cooking a nice mix grill this weekend for a treat. I spent a little extra this weekend and bought a package of rib eyes. It came with 4 steaks about 10 -12 oz each. I grilled 2 rib eyes, 6 chicken thighs and two 14 oz chappell hill all meat sausage links. I ended up with a lot of grilled meat. I ate the rib eye and a little chicken and sausage. I then chopped all the meat and mixed it up into a container. Like I predicted this was anther lazy weekend. Besides doing 3 loads laundry I spent time reading and being lazy. My confidence in this way of eating is getting much stronger. Who would have known that I could make a come back. I know some people out there have tried and failed and maybe tried again  to fail once more. On the other hand there are people out there that although they have had some bumps here and there, they stuck with it and continue to benefit all the positive benefits of this lifestyle. I want to be like them. I want to overcome all the obstacles that have kept me from feeling like feeling comfortable with zero carb. Most of it is mentally. I know I still have some carb withdraw from time to time. I am really feeling much better and grow stronger everyday. I will get there I know I will. I really want to get to the point where I control my eating better to the point that I am losing weight. I need to control the amounts I eat. Lots of time I eat way past hunger just to ensure that I protect myself from carb cravings. I know I will get there soon. I want to start to weigh myself daily and record it on my journal. It was one of the reasons to write here. Not the only one of course. That's it for now.



Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal   -rib eye steak 10 - 12 oz

2nd meal   -omelet: three eggs, mixed grill meat and two slices of gouda cheese

Day 33 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the late post. Friday was a good day. Very basic, but a carb craving free day. Not too much going on at the moment. Just work and home. I have not been hanging out with my friends too much these last few weeks. I don't know if it helps or now. I will definitely have to learn to be comfortable in any environment with zero carb. I was there once and I know I will get there again. For now I will continue to focus on eating zero carb and making preparations of zero carb friendly foods ready on hand. I don't have a big budget for food. I will be eating mostly ground beef, chicken quarters, eggs and brisket. I do buy bacon, sausage, a little cheese among other things when I find them on sale or mark downs. Lately I have enjoyed eating an omelet when I get home. They are easy to make and taste really great. You are limited to only your imagination when making them.

I plan once again to relax over the weekend and read some past articles on this site from Denis and Dave. The postings here have a lot of information and and a lot of inspiration. Thanks everyone. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal   -12 oz beef brisket

2nd meal   -omelet: three eggs, 3 rashers of thick bacon and 2 slices of american cheese

Day 32 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had a good day. Besides some stress at work things are going fine with me. I am feeling pretty good right now. I hope I ride this high for a good while. I really need a solid week of feeling confident in my zero carb lifestyle. I really think that soon I will be over the hump for good. I feel it in my bones. I know that sounds a little strange, but I think that I am finally coming around to that great feeling of being on this change as I had before I fell off the wagon. Now I will tread with more caution. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal   -12 oz beef brisket

2nd meal   -mega meat omelet: three eggs, brisket, bacon, ham and 2 slices of american cheese

DR. JEFF VOLEK AND THE ZERO CARB DIET

I just finished watching the very interesting conference of Dr. Jeff Volek on: “The many Facets of Keto-Adaptation: Health, Performance & Behond” that can be viewed on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GC1vMBRFiwE#t=68

I was amazed how much new science came out in the last few years on VLCKD (Very Low Carb Keto Diet) and this video details many of them for us. Dr. Volek is an excellent speaker, making knowledge simple and accessible and his “slide show” is the best thing I saw in any conference in the last years.

This doctor is THE leading Low Carb researcher in the US and he works and teaches at the University of Connecticut. He has a lab and funds available for his experiments and has publish, aside many books, excellent clinical studies on VLCKD.

We may think the knowledge of VLCKD is related to famous Dr. Atkins work but what he really did is simply making the science of restricted carb diet available for laypersons in the last half of the 20st Century. We must know this type of diet was used for a long time before him and always had records of safety and effectiveness despite what media may have tried to tell uw. We must never forget that before using insulin injection, a VLCKD was THE way diabetic were treated… and the results were great. Then, when we could commercially produce insulin, the LC diet approach “went dark” and sells of insulin when… up!!!

So here are some highlights I find interesting in Dr. Volek conference:
First, and very interesting for Zero Carb folks, he explains clearly why they are no “one size fits all” level of carb restricted diet. Some folks can do quite well and be keto-adapted (burning fat for energy) with 50 g carbs per day, while many others need to go down under 20 g and, as we well know, some like us must go down to zero carb to get some results…
One fascinating discovery he made while studying the metabolic effect on VLCKD on blood profile, is all folks on a seriously restricted carb can eat 3X the quantity of saturated fat compare to the recommended low-fat diet and, still, have LOWER blood level of saturated fat. The reason being that when keto-adapted, any individual burns fat, which includes saturated fat, to answer his energy needs… Imagine: the control group in his study, which was doing a low fat-high carb diet had higher saturated fat levels in their blood… the reason being they produced more triglycerides because of their high carb diet and these said triglycerides, for a big part of them, are saturated…
Dr. Volek is also very interested in athletes’ performance, which, by the way, is beginning to be very popular, as “burning fat for energy” means the reserve are much higher comparing to “burning muscle glycogen for energy”, which is sort of limited… His researches has shown that on a VLVKD, resistance training produce more weight loss and MORE MUSCLE GAIN, then on a VLCKD by itself or even just resistance training by itself. There seems to be some additive effect on a VLCKD. I found this fascinating!!!
Also interesting, he observed that calorie restriction, which is known as a way to slow/stop aging is NOT more efficient then a VLCKD for the same purpose. Which means the “biological markers” on a carb restricted diet are the SAME as on calories restricted diet... if not even better… without the pain of restricting calories…
Dr. Volek also demonstrated ALL the problems areas related to the metabolic syndrome such as hypertension, diabetes, heart problems ect, which affects numerous people in our society (probably up to 75 % according to his estimate) are better controlled when patients go on a VLCKD than any drug or other available treatment.
Cutting on carb intake causes a decrease in insulin production and this diet is the most powerful tool to do it. He also insists the level of “nutritional ketosis” achieved from carb restriction is completely different from “ketoacidosis” that a diabetic may experience; as, by definition, the acidosis of "ketoacidosis" is 10 times higher AND ALWAYS associated with and extremely high blood sugar in this pathology. So there are no needs to fear “nutritional ketosis”!!!
He also underlines carbohydrates was traditionally considered a MACRONUTRIENT but he insists to say it was a mistake to do so, as carbohydrates are NOT essential in a diet for proper human function.
Finally he explains why uric acid levels on a VLCKD may go up BUT the increase is limited to the first month of the diet. Anyway, as we well know, the same thing is also true for cholesterol. Which means anyone wanting to control the effects of a restricted carb diet on his blood profile should ALWAYS wait for at least 3 months before doing any control, the necessary time for the body to get adjusted to the “stress of loosing weight”…
I strongly recommend to everyone watching this conference of Dr. Volek. It is quite shooting to ear from a searcher himself “the more then excellent results” he got in his well-made studies, adding, day after day, more and science to this great way of eating!!!

Day 31 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had a really bad day and a good day in a sense. From the start everything was OK. I got back into my routine of fasting during the day and eating my first meal. Then I  thought I would drop by the grocery store to buy a few things. This is where things started to fall apart. First of all I am a bargain hunter. I have to keep in a budget. I can not afford to eat rib eyes everyday. If I could I would. You probably notice for the most part I eat cheaper sources of protein available to me. I good with it. I needed some things besides meat, so I was using my phone app to search the store for specials and e-coupons. I usually make out pretty good, but it takes time. I ended up spending way too much time in the store and began to feel hungry. I tried to hurry up, but did not manage to do so. The bad thing was that ideas start to race through my mind of a quick meal. Don't ask me why, but the thought of buying a frozen pizza came to the forefront. I must be going out of my mind. The carb cravings kicked in full speed and I started once again justifying a quick carb loaded meal or snack. As I started to the meat department I noticed a sign for flat iron steak at $1.99 lb. This steak is usally around $6.99 to $8.99 a pound. That did the trick. I grabbed the last 2 steaks and asked the counter person for more. He told the price was reduced to get rid of them and I got the last 2. Then my mind raced on how I was going to cook and eat one of the steaks. When I got home I started to put some things up in the freezer and discovered I had a couple of pork chops hidden away. So I ended up defrosting them in the micro and ate them with some eggs. It is disturbing to me that this happened. I thought I was pretty much on the road of kicking the carb cravings, but now I have to keep my guard up. I avoided disaster and have to keep in mind that I have to take this day by day. That's it for now.

1st meal   -12 oz beef brisket

2nd meal   -2 pork chops and 3 eggs over easy

Day 30 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I did really good going back to my original eating pattern. It was only one day, but that could throw off some people. I am happy to report that it appears all is well for now. I am slowly but surely getting my confidence back with this way of eating. It has been really hard mentally coming back full steam from my first failed attempt when I was doing very well only to fall flat on my face. I have to be honest and admit that day by day I was not sure if I could sustain this journey. I fully understand the benefits that are waiting for me if I can get over the hump. I don't want to get over confident, but I am really starting to feel that I can do it for the long run. For now it is still a day by day situation where I have to take extra caution to stay on the path set before me. That's it for now.

Day 29 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had an unusual day. I start my first meal in the morning before I wen to work and it was an epic failure. I did not lead to eating carbs, but it did not change anything. I still got hungry later at home that day. I was not hungry at all in the morning. I ate thinking it would keep me full for most of the day. I ate my second meal just a little later than I would have eating my first meal at work before I started down this new road. I ended up eating 3 meals instead of two. I guess my morning fast is better suited for me. I won't venture down that road anytime soon. I will continue with my regular pattern of eating for now. I bet Denis already knew this would probably happen. Things seem to be getting better for me as far a carbs are concerned , but I am not out of the woods yet. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal   -3 egg omelet with 2 slices of american cheese

3rd meal   -8 oz of beef pot roast

Day 28 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I was a little sore today. Maybe from being lazy. I did not do much, except for some housework. I cleaned up a little and wash and dried some cloths. I did not eat until 11:30 AM today. I had a large meal of my new favorite. This time I ate two hamburger patties extra cheese and bacon. This meal kept me full for the whole day and I did not need to eat a second meal. I did not plan it that way, it fell into place. Tomorrow I will attempt to eat my meals a little earlier in the day to see how it makes me feel. I will eat before I go to work and then once again at work if I am hungry at that time. If not I will hold off until I get home. Originally I was going to eat at work regardless of hunger, but I have changed my mind. Besides being a little sore, today was a pretty good day. It was cold and wet again outside, so I did not venture to anywhere. I needed some down time with just only me. I was doing a lot of thinking on some goals that I want to do around the house. I also try to give myself some reinforcement that I am on this journey to better my health, not just by losing weight, but the overall benefits of maintaining this lifestyle for the long haul. Many of you out there know exactly what I am trying to say. I am now caught up with my posting. I will try to post daily, if not I will sometimes have a double post like the last couple of days. That's it for now.

Day 27 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I got a lot of rest today. That seems to be a recurring theme on Saturdays. All in all it was a good day. We have been having wet and cold days for the past couple of days and I think it has made me feel lazy. I want to do some outdoor activities, nothing strenuous. Just taking a nice walk or go to the park and read, but it is nasty outside. I ate a real nice combo for my first meal. I fired up some bacon, a couple of eggs and a hamburger patty with cheese and put it in a bowl. It was a nice combination especially with the yolk running through the mixture. These types of meals are real satisfying to me and remind me of comfort food. I really don't know why I feel that way after eating it.

One small side note. I feel that I am eating too much sometimes, but this is the way that I am combating the cravings for carbs and it seems to be working for the at this time. Once I break that urge for the most part, I will concentrate on the weight loss. For now I want to put all of my efforts on eating zero carb. The other things will fall into place. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal  -american cheese, 2 thick rashers of bacon, 2 eggs over easy,  and 1 hamburger patty

Day 26 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

Funny thing as of late, I have been experiencing extreme tiredness around 10 PM or so. I fall right to sleep. In a sense that is a good thing because I sometimes stay up until 12:30 or 1 AM then fall asleep. I guess I am getting more rest. It is just strange to me how the sleep just hits me. Anyway I had a good day as far as eating and cravings. I think for awhile in the near future I am going to start to lean to eating more eggs and ground chuck because the are easy to get, cheap and really fast to cook. I really like those two foods very much and I can make them different ways.

I plan start eating my first meal of the day at home before I go to work this Monday. I just want to see how things feel in the evening with a little fast like I do in the morning. If I don't like it I will just chance back to what I am doing now.  That's it for now.

Day 25 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

Time is going by very quick. I had a pretty good day. No major concerns today. I am trying to get more rest. I find myself staying up too late at night. I always feel better with more rest. I will be a cold weekend. I plan to finish up on some outside decorations. So far I am doing good with the diet. I have to admit I am not as excited by the diet as I was the first time. The reason is that I am scared of failure. The first time around I felt more in control most of the time and look forward a lot. Now I take it day by day for the most part. Everyday I hope to regain that confidence I once had in myself to continue this lifestyle without fear of failing. One more thing, I have not stated the morning meals as of yet. I may try this weekend or next Monday. That's it for now.

Day 24 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I made it through another day. Although for some odd reason the array of doughnuts at the office looked tempting today. I saw one of my old favorites, glazed chocolate cake doughnuts. I did good and passed them up. I wish that those feelings or old attachments to foods like that or should I say junk like that would just go away. I know that they are basically poison for me, but yet I am finding it hard just to turn it off. I can only hope that time will help.

I was thinking of changing my eating pattern. I was practicing a morning fast and two meals later in the day. One at work and one later at home. I am think of starting tomorrow of eating one meal in the morning before I leave to work and one at work. I think that may help me with temptations at work earlier in the day. I try it tomorrow and see how it goes and let you know. That's it for now.

Day 23 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had a real good day. I am eating good and feel good. I am still looking at this day by day. I think sometimes we tend to rush and overwhelm over selves with new things and sometimes it can get out of hand. I know there are a lot of people that can handle that situation without a problem, but I am not one of them. I guess for the most part it's a mind game, that is, after you get past the adjustment to the new way of eating. Unless you have a real problem with carb cravings. I for one do not know from day to day if a carb attack is in the wind or not. I deal with it as it comes. That's it for now.

Day 22 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

I had a real interesting day. I can't believe that I forgot to pack my first meal of the day. Just when I was feeling a bit hungry I went into my day bag in which I carry my insulated lunch bag. Well the insulated lunch bag was there, but it was empty. I was in shock. All these crazy things raced through my head. I almost justified getting something small out of the vending machine. Then I came to my senses. Then I thought of getting some fried chicken and peal the skin off with all the flour and just eat the meat. Another thought was to get a double burger and just eat the meat. I decided to tough it out and wait until I got home to eat and that's what I did. I actually at twice at home. I ate around 3:30 PM and again around 10:30 PM. I was not really hungry for the second meal, but I was afraid that I would wake up in the middle of the night hungry or maybe even crave carbs. Regardless I ate and feel good about it. I like the first meal so much that I ate the same thing twice. Just one egg less. I gave the frozen prepacked meals a break and ate something fresh. That's it for now.


Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal  -4 large eggs and beef chorizo sausage

Day 20 & 21 Zero Carb Diet-2nd Try

Hello everyone,

Thanksgiving is officially in the books for this year. Christmas and New Years Day will be here before we know it. I am glad to get a start on New Years resolution. Actually this is ever year resolution for the rest of my life. I spent time this weekend with friends and family. I was not home much these past couple of days. One thing I made sure to do was to eat at home only. I made no exceptions this weekend. I thought I was going to spend more time at home, but we always can't predict things. I am happy to report that I turned down offers to eat out. At this point I want to focus on home food. I know eventually I will be in situations where eating out will have to occur, but I will only do that if I feel that I am up to the task. For now I take things one day at a time. Everyday is a new day on zero carb for me. I celebrate my dedication each night before I go to sleep. I had basically the same meal the last two days. I ended up putting all kinds of Christmas decorations inside my place. It looks really nice. My next task is to do the outside. That's it for now.

Fluids - water, seltzer, plain black coffee

1st meal  -3 larges eggs over easy and 3 extra thick rashers of bacon

2nd meal  -about lb mix of turkey, ham and pork roast. All gone.



Thanks,

Connor
