Well, the experiment is finished now. I have completed Day 5, and am back to doing EF (Extended Fasting) again as I type this. I have embarked on another 6 Day fast, and I am happy to be back in the groove.
Overall, I lost 3 pounds in my journey through the Beef, Pork, & Butter experiment. Three pounds is pretty good, but I could have done better doing an Extended Fast.
The food was good, I enjoyed it and spiced up my ground meet with some sriracha sauce, which made it very tasty. I don’t know if you like spicy food, but I like my food a bit spicy, not overboard, though.
I will be back again tomorrow with another video. This time no results for the experiment, but my overall impressions of the experiment! Would I do it again? How did I feel during the experiment? Everything that people have been asking me! So, tune in again if you are looking for the answers!
My Day 4 results are in for the Beef, Pork, & Butter Experiment.
To recap so far:
Day 1: 1 lb gain
Day 2: 1 lb loss
Day 3: 0.8 lb loss
Day 4 Results
For Day 4, I came away with a 1.2 lb loss.
So, my total loss for the first 4 days is 2 lb in 4 days.
I do feel pretty strongly that the Day 1 gain of 1 lb was just water weight because I was coming off of 4 days of fasting. I always gain on day 1 of eating after an extended fast, and usually a lot more than 1 pound!
So, I feel the loss so far is pretty good.
Tomorrow, I will feature the results of Day 5, which is the final day of the experiment. I will have a follow-up and wrap up post for Day 6, a non-experiment day. On Day 6 I will share with you my overall thoughts about the experiment, some of what I share will probably surprise you.
Day 3 of my Beef, Pork, & Butter experiment has come and gone. The results are in.
My video below tells the story.
In short, I lost 8/10 of a pound (0.8 lb). I was hoping for a full pound loss, but still nothing wrong with 0.8 lb. That is still a respectable loss.
The great thing is that over the term of the experiment, so far, I have gained 3 lb of lean body mass (muscle).
I feel that tomorrow, Day 4 (our of 5) I will continue losing weight and gaining muscle. If that is true, the results will continue to look good!
My plan is to go 5 days on this Beef, Pork, & Butter experiment and see how that goes. After that, I will eat “normally” (keto) for 1 day, then I will go into either a 6 day or 10 day fast with no food at all during that time.
On day 6 of the experiment, which will have already ended by then, I am going to share my thoughts about the entire process, my feelings about the success. I can already tell you that there are things that I do not like about this experiment and I wlll explain that on Day 6.
Tune in again tomorrow for Day 4 results!
Well, day 2 weigh-in has come and gone. The results were different from day 1.
Better or worse? Watch the Video!
I have to say, this is going exactly as I thought it would. Yeah, a bit of water gain on Day 1. But, I lost it back on Day 2.
I also do a lot of working out to gain muscle mass. I do weightlifting and walking. So far, in the 3 days since I started this experiment, I have gained 4 lb of lean muscle mass. I have a body composition monitor where I can measure this. That makes my experiment weight loss even better to hear!
I expect to continue losing on the remain days, but we’ll have to see what happens.
Tune in tomorrow for my Day 3 results! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
