The simplicity of this approach really appeals to me. there is much evidence to support is WOE. The innuit are a perfect example. I always obsess about my next meal. This makes it simple. I just bought 1/4 carcass of beef (butchered) about 250 lbs. My wife had doubts that I would be able to eat it before it "goes bad" now there is no doubt I can!

250 lbs of meat is 4000 oz, 1 serving of beef is 4 oz, you've got 1000 servings of beef.

This will last you at least a year... LOL

edit: How much did you pay for it btw?

Oh, yeah. Palm of the hand-sized portions of meat. Right.

Maybe palm of the hand of the jolly green giant. Now that my wife is doing the grocery shopping, I'm still having trouble getting her to realize that two pounds of meat for a meal leaves just a little bit of leftovers. That's one pound for me, and half-pound split between her and our four-year-old. (they both still eat other stuff) She insists upon getting just 1.5 pounds and then wonders why there are no leftovers.

4 oz. Sheesh.

Leftovers? If I made 2 pounds of meat, the rest of the family would have to eat vegetarian!

Last night I braised a 3-4 pound shoulder butt. Of the 4 other family members, only one ate her whole portion. I finished off everyone else's, and then ate the meat that was still left in the pot.

So its day 5 on ZC carnivore I've been eating steaks, grounf beef patties (home made), sardines in olive oil, wild canned salmon and a little bit of beef liver (once per week as it has a lot of carbs (glycogen stores))

I drink a lot of tea and some coffee no dairy or artificial sweeteners. I find that drinking warm tea with meals feels better than cold water.

I have overcome my initial issue with eating steak fat by trimming it, cutting it up and frying it before I put the meat in my cast iron skillet. I out the melted fat over my steak and eat the cracklings (they are yummy).

I weighed my self today and I'm down 6.5 lbs. It seems wrong, but I'm not complaining. I will stick to weekly weigh ins on Fri morning.

survived a few parties (ate shrimp).

Today I ate a rib steak and then a GB patty and I am stuffed!

I eat only dinner time as that fits my schedule well.

Good technique for making sure you get your fat. You can turn that melted fat into a true sauce without going too far off zero carbs by adding a little herbs (dried thyme might be good) and a splash of lemon juice. Even if you squeeze a whole wedge worth of juice, there are not enough carbs to even be counted. You're probably getting more carbs from the meat then from the lemon juice. If you want to be very strict, then just dust a tiny smidgen of powdered citric acid.

The acid helps to balance the fat, and if you add a little herbs and maybe some broth you've got a real sauce.

If you do it with broth, though, be sure to add the fat at the end or it won't emulsify. Turn the heat down very low and whisk it in gradually (if it's solid and cold, you can just plop in a spoonful and it will be added slowly as it melts).
