    MMMM that sounds good. As far as the ground turkey were you using 97/3 or 99/1? For the most part all I have is the 93/7 which is to high fat intake for what I am doing right now. I don't know how much fat actually cooks off of it say in a foreman grill or whatever, so I am avoiding it for the most part. If I try to get 80 grams of protein out of it I will be taking in a high yield of fat bringing it up to high.

    Do you have any idea in general how much of the fats get cooked off when grilling? If not too bad maybe I will add it in. If not then I am going to suck it up for the next 8 days and then revisit.

So Shame on us for believing their lies, but shame on them for lying and even trying to deceive us!!!
    Yeah if anyone looks at the Asteroid Stack Manual I am on the cover of, they used a 4 year old before picture and a 4 weeks out from a contest picture as my before and afters. I signed a release they could use my pics and they used one I had sent them before to show how far i had come like it was 12 weeks from the chunky me to the 5.25% me.

    Marc Lobliner has a video on youtube (maybe under machine muscle page idk) on how to get rid of the extra fat from fatty ground beef etc. You start with some vegetable oil in a pan, heat it up, and toss in the meat. At the same time you are boiling a huge pot of water. After cooking/browning the meat for like 10min you drain the fat with a collander and then pour the boiling water over the meat. He had it linked to a university study proving the method works at getting the fatty meat down to about the same amount of fat as skinless chicken breast. The video will tell you exactly what to do as I summarized it (poorly I bet) and you can try it out. He is big on getting organic grass fed meat etc and it he said he uses that method a lot to reduce the fat content.

    From my experience with PSMF I dont feel the extra bit of dietary fat made much of a difference overall with regards to fat loss. The extreme calorie deficit, the 20+ hours of fasting and ECA all played a much bigger role in fat loss. However I did do the paper towel trick when I was browning my ground turkey, to try and soak up some of the excess fat but I wasnt really too anal about it. As long as I hit my protein macros and avoided sugar and fat as much as possible the fat loss remained constant. I was on PSMF for around 5 weeks with one refeed a week and one cheat meal a week. The onlything ai regretted was not training as much as I should have.

    It is pretty good..I have tried with other sugar free pudding flavors and so far pistachio has been the best! I got some ice cream salt and have been meaning to try and make a frozen yogurt type ice cream with the cottage cheese but never got around to it but the cottage cheese dessert helped keep me sane during the diet.

    I do that sometimes. Well I run hot water over the meat in the strainer. However I cook with the 93/7 pretty much all the time and typically the fat is not a problem. I was thinking more along the lines of a turkey patty, but I could brown some up and do that then toss back on the heat with some onions and bell peppers and crushed red peppers and make myself happy with that.

    At Wendy's this is how they get the chili to be low fat. They take the burger meat and cook it then they boil it in a huge pot, skim the fat off the top put the meat in a strainer and then boil it again to get rid of any excess fat before dumping it into the chili sauce and veggies to cook for several hours.

    Exactly, I use hot water, and it works really well. I tend to add a little more season to it after this though because it washes some of it away.

    Taco salad was another one of my favorite meals while on PSMF. Ground turkey with taco seasoning, fat free shredded cheese, fat free sour cream, some hot sauce and salsa all on top a big azz bowl of greens.

    Ya know, I always rinse a lot of my meats and stuff, I always really did it to lower the sodium, but now that you guys are mentioning that sounds like a fantastic idea, I think I'm gonna go home get some 93/7 ground beef like Kleen said and fry it up, then boil it one time to lean it up even more, then make myself some good homestyle CHILE.... Yeah!!! Does anyone else use Rotelli chiles in their Chile & I also always use a little tomato paste?

    I will check out the grocery store and see if they have them. I usually use a steak seasoning that my butcher makes but am always looking to try new things

    No, this does not necessarily make it hot, but if you think it does, there is extra-mild version, I personally look for the Extra-Hot version or the Habanero version, because I do like things _HOT_!!!

    I definitely do this for my taco salab but generally I don't put the cheese or sour cream on it just the meat, salsa and veggies. So let me ask you this Josh, how low did you keep your calories daily? It sounds like you may have had them higher than I do.

    I don't blame you. That spicy season sounds good. I can't use most of the Montreal Steak Seasoning for a lot of stuff. The family doesn't like the chunks of garlic. I like to add some crushed red pepper or cayenne to a lot of my meats. I just season them with the rest of the family's stuff then add my spicy ingredients...

    I make mine kind of a mix between Northern and Souther Style Chili. One I like beans in my chili, tow I prefer my chili to have more tomato flavor than many of them provide, and yes on occasion I will use rotel but I drain the juice. I prefer to used stewed tomato and occasionally I wil use paste but most of the time I use tomato sauce.

    No this one isn't hot, but I love the habanero version. It surprised me the first time I had it. I really didn't expect much even though it said habanero, too often they put that on there but there is no heat.

    800-1200 calories I think, I would have to double check to find out

    I do this all the time on burn days and love it, except I use 97/3 lean ground meat instead. Good stuff!!

    Josh, I forgot you said you were eating in a 4 hour window so your calories look pretty much on point with mine.

    I can't even remember the last time I made some queso dip. For the most part I would rather eat hot salsa than cheesy stuff. I like it don't get me wrong but unless I am having a social function it is not something I make. Just to calorically dense and then add in the calorically dense chips and forget about it.

    Yeh....chips and con queso makes me very bloated the next day. Lots of carbs and lots of sodium is hell on the midsection

    Progress Update!


    Okay just an update here,
    but a good one.


    Yesterday at lunch I walked
    for 80 minutes to burn of some time and avoid accruing too much OT. Last night
    at Karate I got to work alone with the instructor and he drilled me nonstop for
    45 minutes. I was just dripping everywhere and completely soaked my gi. Was a
    great training session.

    I had a good workout this
    morning, I was sweating buckets and pushing hard. I can tell the low cals are
    taking a small toll on my strength but that was pretty much a given when going
    to extremely low carbs whether cals are low or not.



    Now for my nutrition
    yesterday. I held out until almost 5PM before breaking my fast and had 2 scoops
    of recover pro every 2 hours until then. Since in a hurry and I had Karate class
    last night I hit up a protein shake. Last night we had turkey spaghetti (meat
    strained and rinsed) so I weighed the meat “sauce” out to 13 Oz and ate that. We
    use 2.5 lbs of meat per 1 can of sauce so I estimate I ended up with cup of
    actual sauce along with it which adds 9 grams of carbs. I was careful to get the
    meat off of the top of the pan so it would be the dryest meat possible.

    MRM Metabolic Whey
    -
    3 scoops = 66 grams protein, 7.5g fats, 9 carbs - 361.5 cals

    12 oz 93/7 ground turkey
    with a little spaghetti sauce
    - 92 grams protein, 36 fats, 9g carbs - 728
    calories.

    1 cup Fat Free cottage
    cheese
    - 26g protein, 0 fats, 10g carbs = 144 cals

    Daily total not
    including 40 grams of aminos:
    184 grams protein,
    43.5g fats, 28g carbs = 1233


    Now this was a bit low on
    protein but it was not a workout day and I had PLENTY of aminos
    throughout the day. I also balanced it out calorically by getting in more fat.
    Not what I wanted that but it is how it worked out. Either way I am still happy
    with the calories for the day.


    On to other things that
    I am happy about. I said i would not weigh myself until this weekend but I was
    curious so I got on the scale this morning. I started the diet on Monday
    2/6/12 at a whopping 218 lbs, I weighed in this morning and I am 210.5.
    Now
    I know quite a bit of this is water but I was floating around 213 before I
    carbed up, so I am thinking I have at least lost 1-1.5 lbs of fat, and that is
    in 3 complete days on the crash diet. I am pretty damned stoked about that but
    we will see how it all works out next week.

    That's a very good idea with plain Greek yogurt. I may try that sometime soon

    it makes life easier plus it is more satisfying eating 1-2 big meals in a short time rather then trying to stretch it out over the day

    What kind of fish?

    I have been wanting to try some new ways to make fish

    Thanks Al! I am enjoying running the log. I am surprised no one actually mentioned the fact that the post says I have lost 7.5 lbs in 3 days. I am extremely impressed whether it is mostly water or not I have never dropped weight so quickly.

    So to give you an idea of how inaccurate the impedence body fat machines are. You said your body fat measured 27 on one the other day. My bodyfat read 26.4 on one today. I did it for sh*ts and giggles, knowing I am somewhat dehydrated and expecting to see a higher reading than what I am but that was pretty far off. That was surprising.

    Thats fricken awesome so far bro! It sounds like this method could be pretty legit! I'd be happy at this point if I was losing 2 lbs a week on LG let along 1.5+ of fat in 3 days

    Yah BMI is the stupidest measurement ever invented. Says I am supposed to be no heavier than 185, if I was 185 I'd be dead...
