The Old School ‘steak And Eggs’ Diet For Fat Loss, Balanced Energy, And Increased Testosterone

When it comes to burning body fat simplicity is often overlooked in favor of needlessly complicated systems and plans for losing weight. People will needlessly try to count calories, mix and match several different ingredients to “activate their fat-burning” abilities, eliminate all high calorie foods, or drink nothing but juice for a week. And they end up right back where they started – with unwanted body fat! Well, I am here to tell you there is an easier way, a simpler way, and a funner way. It's called ‘Steak and Eggs‘. The Steak and Eggs diet was developed by famous bodybuilding trainer Vince Gironda as a way to burn off all excess body fat. It is the simplest diet in existence and it is one of the most effective. The Steak and Eggs diet is exactly what it sounds like – you eat Steak and Eggs, cooked in butter, and you watch the fat melt off. You eat only two meals per day: Breakfast and Supper, or Lunch and Dinner. For meal #1 you eat 3/4 lb to 1 1/2 pounds of steak and 4-6 eggs. For meal #2 you eat the exact same thing. Cook your Steak and Eggs in butter, as much butter as you want, and season with salt and pepper. Prepare your eggs any way you like, fried, scram Continue reading >>

    I did so much research online and thats why the next question rises to me. there are hundreds of posts where ppl are saying that atkins bars even 3 bars per week can stall your ketosis for sure because they are processed carbs. even though the advantage bars are only like about 3 net carbs but if you even eat one a day the alcohol sugar will make ruin the ketosis and blablabla. does any one have any ideas on this? i read that 2 bars are allowed during the day but they are so filling and sweet that it just feels as its cheating:)are those just dumb or there is a posibility that even one can stall the whole process?

  2. Ellen

    Atkins bars are allowed and you count them in the net carbs. At a maximum of 3g per bar, common sense will tell you that they cannot be pure carbs! However, they are processed, and you need to have food that gives you more nutritional value. They are not meal replacements and are not meant to be. They are there to replace favourite chocolate bars if the need arises.
    You should keep them as occasional treats. If you eat two a day, they can affect your weight loss, but everyone is different.
    The other thing is that if you have a sweet tooth, then having a lot of these will just feed the sweet tooth and keep it going. You need to break the sweet habit, and to do that, you need to cut out sweet things.

  3. Jo

    They stall ketosis for some people but not all. However they have no nutritional benefit, are full of additives and are no good to you so avoid them if you can.

How To Lose 20 Lbs. Of Fat In 30 Days… Without Doing Any Exercise

Fat Loss via Better Science and Simplicity It is possible to lose 20 lbs. of bodyfat in 30 days by optimizing any of three factors: exercise, diet, or drug/supplement regimen. I’ve seen the elite implementation of all three in working with professional athletes. In this post, we’ll explore what I refer to as the “slow-carb diet”. In the last six weeks, I have cut from about 180 lbs. to 165 lbs., while adding about 10 lbs. of muscle, which means I’ve lost about 25 lbs. of fat. This is the only diet besides the rather extreme Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD) that has produced veins across my abdomen, which is the last place I lose fat (damn you, Scandinavian genetics). Here are the four simple rules I followed… Rule #1: Avoid “white” carbohydrates Avoid any carbohydrate that is — or can be — white. The following foods are thus prohibited, except for within 1.5 hours of finishing a resistance-training workout of at least 20 minutes in length: bread, rice, cereal, potatoes, pasta, and fried food with breading. If you avoid eating anything white, you’ll be safe. Rule #2: Eat the same few meals over and over again The most successful dieters, regardless of whether thei Continue reading >>

    A co-worker and I were having a discussion today. I am Keto, he does Carb-Cycling.
    I was telling him he should just cut out the carb cycling and just stick to Keto... he thinks it would be too difficult and he needs to have cheat days, I told him he doesn't if he justs let his body get fat adapted he won't even crave it anymore.
    But this did spur an academic question I wanted to ask and see how everyone reacts to this... I am new to Keto, so I don't have the experience yet, so I can't answer for myself.
    Let's say someone was 6 months in, full on Keto-Adapted, and decides to have a carb-crazy day... True Pancakes for breakfast, Big Mac and Fries with a Milkshake for lunch... Pizza Buffet for dinner, and a huge ice cream sundae for a snack that night... WAY overboard... Not just having taco bell one night like Carl did.

    What effect would this have as far as the body goes... obviously one would gain some weight, but how would this affect the body, how much of a "starting over" would this set one back? a week of getting re-fat adapted? I'm sure YMMV applies here.

    I'm thinking sugar coma and you would feel incredibly awful.

    In my case, I will pay for it. My gut would become ground zero nuclear ignition, my knees would become sore (climbing stairs would be difficult), my skin would break out in zits, I'd wake up to soaking bed sheets until body is rid of the crappy food (1 or 2 weeks?), and I would suffer the onset of carb cravings.

    No thanks. Pass.

Learn more here http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Get The Clothes That I Wear at 40% Off - Use Code TD40 at http://www.Hylete.com Previously it was touted to eat every 2 hours if you are bodybuilding, with some even waking up in the middle of the night to eat. The thought was that if you did not eat your body would begin to break down your muscles, which is the last thing we want. Now you have likely heard about intermittent fasting and how without this approach you will not be maximizing your fitness potential. So which strategy is correct, or are different approaches better for different goals? What is IF? The idea is to go without food for a period of time so that you deplete your immediate energy sources, ie your blood glucose and liver glycogen stores, so your body is forced into fat-burning mode. The main benefit that those of us trying to keep muscle and lose fat are concerned with is the increase in Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is made in the pituitary gland and plays a role in the our development as we grow as children, but also plays a key role in bone strength and lean body mass. Higher HGH levels are a

The Low Down On Intermittent Fasting

To view the original article about the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting, click here! I’ve been training since I’ve been about 13 years old, and I started by competing in powerlifting in the 1990s. Nutrition advice for powerlifters at the time went something like this: eat as much as you can as often as you can, even if you aren’t hungry. Normally, this was shortened to two words: eat more. I followed this advice throughout my high school years and later as I reentered the iron sports after my stint as a Marine Corps infantryman where it was pretty impractical. Given the fact that this was how I was brought up in strength training and fitness, I was naturally skeptical when I heard about intermittent fasting a few years ago. How could someone gain muscle, lose fat, and perform better by not eating? That being said, two things drove me to try it: I was broke and couldn’t afford the 8 meal a day bodybuilding diet I was doing, and I had ulcerative colitis and every time I ate I ended up running to the bathroom in excruciating pain. Since trying intermittent fasting in combination with a low carbohydrate ketogenic diet, I’ve never gone back to my old bodybuilding templa Continue reading >>

    On my 3rd month of Keto and having some success, but every so often I'm presented with an opportunity to "cheat" and sometimes it's rude if not impossible to pass up. Examples include but are not limited to:
    A friend buying a round of beers at the bar.
    A close friend or relative's child offering a piece of their birthday cake.
    A pancake social or a private dinner at a traditional Italian home.
    I tried searching but couldn't find anything discussing the SCIENCE of cheating while on Keto. For example:
    What are the variables that affect how quickly and how long you are kicked out of ketosis, and how long does it take to get back into ketosis in each scenario?
    How much different is the effect of eating a single Oreo cookie versus a whole plate of pasta?
    How strongly does exercise impact ketosis, and what types of exercises are best for getting back into ketosis if you get "kicked out" after a cheat day?
    How strongly does cheating impact actual weight loss? It seems to be common knowledge that cheating can actually help overcome plateaus, so what's the REAL difference between someone who practices Keto religiously versus someone who does Keto most of the time with the occasional treat thrown in every few days?
    To clarify, this is not a post advocating cheating. I am simply trying to open a discussion about the physical impact that cheating can have on your body while in ketosis. I have gone over a month without cheating, but I have also cheated multiple times in a week and I haven't really noticed much of a difference either way. This is more of a curiosity post than anything else. Looking forward to a good discussion.

    What are the variables that affect how quickly and how long you are kicked out of ketosis, and how long does it take to get back into ketosis in each scenario?
    The carbs you take in will stop ketone production until they're used up, or stored away in muscle. Full liver glycogen (~100 grams of carbs) last roughly 12-16 hours, so you'll probably be able to clear around 6-9 grams of carbs per hour by just existing (and not all carbs you eat will get stored as liver glycogen, your muscles take up some).
    The major determinant of whether the liver will produce ketone bodies is the amount of liver glycogen present (8). The primary role of liver glycogen is to maintain normal blood glucose levels. When dietary carbohydrates are removed from the diet and blood glucose falls, glucagon signals the liver to break down its glycogen stores to glucose which is released into the bloodstream. After approximately 12-16 hours, depending on activity, liver glycogen is almost completely depleted. At this time, ketogenesis increases rapidly. In fact, after liver glycogen is depleted, the availability of FFA will determine the rate of ketone production. (12)
    "The Ketogenic Diet", by Lyle McDonald, page 30.
    It will also take a few hours to clear the ketones already produced (circulating in your blood) even if ketone production stops, here's a post on ketone clearance from blood.
    How much different is the effect of eating a single Oreo cookie versus a whole plate of pasta?
    Assuming one oreo has 21 grams of carbs and that a whole plate of pasta is something like 121 grams of carbs (three servings).
    You'll probably not get noticeably kicked out from the oreo as it'll probably be digested over 30 minutes and then you'll use up the carbs within an hour or two, it'll take longer than that for the ketones to clear your blood.
    The plate of pasta will probably be digested over several hours, a normal mixed meal takes 4-6 hours but your intestines can absorb around 60-100 grams of carbs per hour, so two or three hours to digest highly processed carbs sounds more likely. At 6-8 grams of carbs used per hour it'll take 15-20 hours to clear all the glucose if it was only burned, but some will probably get used by your digestive system and some will get picked up by other tissues of the body (stored in muscles). You have peripherial insulin resistance on keto, manifested as impaired glucose tolerance, which likely means that a large part of the glucose will end up as liver glycogen. So a full plate of pasta might kick you out of ketosis for at least 15-20 hours (assuming resuming ketone production takes about as long as ketone clearance), longer if your body uses less glucose.
    How strongly does exercise impact ketosis, and what types of exercises are best for getting back into ketosis if you get "kicked out" after a cheat day?
    High intensity exercise burns glucose, high intensity endurance close to the lactate threshold is probably the best way of depleting liver glycogen (muscle taking up blood glucose, forcing the liver to use stored glycogen to maintain blood glucose levels).
    Higher intensity cardiovascular exercise is a little bit harder to pinpoint in terms of carbohydrate requirements and can vary pretty significantly depending on the intensities and volumes. A sprinter running 60m repeats isn’t using a lot of glycogen, a trained endurance athlete working near their lactate threshold for extended periods can deplete glycogen fairly completely in 1-2 hours. Even at lower intensities, the 2-6 hour sessions done by endurance athletes can completely deplete both muscle and liver glycogen stores on a daily basis.
    Lyle McDonald, "How Many Carbohydrates Do You Need?".
    How strongly does cheating impact actual weight loss? It seems to be common knowledge that cheating can actually help overcome plateaus, so what's the REAL difference between someone who practices Keto religiously versus someone who does Keto most of the time with the occasional treat thrown in every few days?
    Actual short term fat gain (or lower loss) directly contributed to by the carbs is likely negligible, what matters for fat stored (or lower fat loss) directly affected by the cheat meal/day is total caloric intake.
    Short term weight gain might be because when carbs are stored as glycogen they bind 3-4 grams of water and the increased insulin levels can also lead to higher sodium retention (leading to water retention), which can help explain why some people gain large amounts of weight with cheat meals/days despite not eating a lot of calories (longer post on water loss on keto).
    Long term weight loss effects might be slightly different, a single cheat day might help you lower cortisol, raise leptin, and thyroid levels, which could help lessen water retention (and possibly increase metabolic rate, but not a lot of research on this that I know of). This might be why people break plateaus after cheat meals/days, Lyle talks some about it in "The LTDFLE".
    Eating a few carbs from time to time is unlikely to negatively influence your weight loss unless it adds significant calories.
