Steak when cutting?
Does anyone eat steak when cutting? If so what cuts do you get? I am literally SICK of chicken, it is almost to the point where my gag reflex wants to just throw it up..lol
I have always cut with chicken breast.
I am going to still eat chicken with my carb meals, but i have 2 pro/fat meals where i would like to sub out my chicken for steak.
How many % lean is the leanest steaks? I have been looking for bison but can't find it locally.

I eat steak while cutting, but it is generally only 2-3x/wk. I usually eat either sirloin or top round.M.Ed. Ex Phys

Just make sure to get lean cuts and then still cut off any visable fat on the steak and you should be good, just dont over do it.

At the end of the day, steak is a good source of protein and although red meat is not as lean as chicken/fish if it is taken without carbs it can still come well within the confines of a good cutting diet.
I eat steak 4 times weekly but only enough to yield around 75-100g protein (so less that 500g), and i have either vegetables or nothing with it. However i don't claim to be at all knowledgeable on PROPER cutting (like 12-9%bf) I only really know about weight loss in general.

Typically my 3rd meal and on. First two meals (which are either pre/post workout on lifting days or the first two meals after fasted cardio) and the rest are all protein and fat meals (either almonds or flax oil for the fats if that plays a role.) What I had been doing is on workout days taking in the flax oil with asparagus with the 3rd meal (no true carbs) and also broccoli with my pre bed meal which is also flax (which leaves 1 sometimes 2 meals with no fiberous carbs with 1 or sometimes two meals. On cardio days its ussually always 2 meals with a p/f meal with no fiberous carbs (expect again the broccoli with the flax and c/c pre bed)
Sorry for going into so much depth regarding it but very interested on this subject. Im probably slacking on the amount of vegetables I should be eating so this may bump me up to getting in more.
O and not to hijack that badly I really try to avoid steak on cuts due to the fact that I like consistency. I eat to just to eat when cutting so I try and get my chicken down and its still tolerable so no real need to change it. If anything once and a while (once or twice a month) I will grill up some sirloin and chop it up and throw it in my egg whites (egg whites are becoming/ very close to being untolerable any longer so anything to spice them up.) However when bulking or a rare cheat meal ~ steak + sweet potato for the win (Copper Canyon anyone?)

OCC, you aren't really gaining much weight on this diet, are you? I like to start high and end low throughout the day. My big problem with this is I train late in the day and don't like getting too many carbs late. So basically I sacrifice some gains for the sake of staying lean.
If maintenance is your thing, I would look into a CKD, minimal carb days then a high carb up day. I know Ubi is a big fan of it.

To be clear on what i meant, i was not suggesting or advocating a carb free diet. Simply when cutting i avoid/minimise carb intake of any kind after 9pm. Between 5pm and 9pm i will take in fibrous carbs only. I try to only take in complex carbs or sugars early in the day.
Is this wrong?
