Thread: Steak day didn't work - now what?

  1. #1

    Steak day didn't work - now what?

    Technically it was a 14 poached egg whites day since I'm a vegetarian, plus one apple and a gallon of water. My weight had gone up 2.6 pounds and it's the same today. I'm so disappointed. I ride this morning so I can't skip breakfast. My plan is to have 6 egg whites now and 8 for dinner. Is there anything else I can do?

    This doesn't really answer your whole question, but can't you eat whole eggs? I mean, you are talking 660 (+/-) calories in a 12 ounce ribeye, so wouldn't you need some fat and calories from the egg yolks since you are in P3?

    Possibly, I was just thinking of the cholesterol from 14 egg yolks. Two would probably be okay.

    Have you tried cottage cheese? I have used it some in P2 and had no issues (that I know of). Could that help boost the calories, protein and fat without the cholesterol?

    I love cottage cheese - it was the first dairy product I added back in. LF cottage cheese was my breakfast on P3D1 and P3D2.

    I'm still not sure what to do about the weight gain. I'm afraid to weigh myself tomorrow morning!

    I am SUCH no help to you; I haven't even been in P3. But this sounds horrible - after all that effort!!

    So you went into P3, and at what day did you start to gain? What had you eaten in the previous days?

    Here is a cut/paste that I am snitching from another thread.

    I just Googled "vegan steak day" and this was the first result (from www.hellojody.com) hope this helps!

    If you are a vegetarian on the HCG Diet, I found a recipe out there that is a revised Steak Day for vegans & vegetarians. Check out the 'Steak Day' Pudding recipe below that works just as well as the steak, with a nutritional profile incredibly close to that of a 12 oz filet mignon!

    Filet Mignon: cal: 575, fat: 30g, carb: 0, protein:71
    'Steak Day' Pudding: cal: 594, fat: 27g, carb: 12, protein:72 (not including the apple)

    Steak Day Pudding (Vegan Substitute for Steak Day)
    4.5 scoops Protein Powder (Natural Flavor)
    2 T Coconut Oil
    1 Granny Smith Apple (half diced)
    2 t Konjac Flour
    8 droppers full Stevia
    2 t Cinnamon
    1 t Ginger
    2 C Water
    1/2 bag Miracle Noodles

    Put diced apple and Miracle Noodles (preferably a style like Orzo or something else with little chunks rather than long noodles, though that would work) into serving bowl.
    Miracle Noodle Shirataki - Zero Calorie Noodles!
    Put remaining ingredients (starting with water) into blender and blend for 50 seconds. Pour pudding mixture into serving bowl and stir noodles & apple up to distribute evenly. This has a very nearly equivalent nutritional profile to a 12 oz filet mignon!

    Note: You may also create a Smoothie by modifying this recipe and simply eliminate the noodles and/or Konjac Flour.


    I must admit that it sounds sort of icky, but then again, other people thought my chocolate cottage cheese sounded icky too!

    Haha, you are cute, BadKitty! You're right, it might have just been a blip and I shouldn't panic. I'm still at my LIW today so maybe everything's okay.

    so, what are you eating???

    You mean in P3? Here's a list of what I've been eating regularly (not all in one day!):

    -steamed spinach or collard greens, with garlic, butter and one of those spice grinders of poultry seasoning
    -Romaine salad with apples, pears, Swiss cheese and toasted pecans, lemmon-poppyseed dressing (Stevia instead of sugar but just a teenty tiny bit)
    -red leaf lettuce salad with tomatoes, purple onions, walnuts and goat cheese in a raspberry vinaigrette dressing
    -coconut flour orange cake; odd consistency but very good flavor!
    -apples, oranges, grapefruit, strawberries (lots), blueberries, peaches, pomegranate, cantaloupe - sometimes I combine them with some Greek yogurt for a fruit salad
    -Greek yogurt + strawberries + a bit of vanilla extract + a pinch of Stevia, blended, then mostly frozen - good substitute for strawberry ice cream!
    -poached eggs
    -low-fat buttermilk (I drink it straight - I like it and it's a good source of protein)
    -almond flour Parmesan cheese crackers with spinach-artichoke dip
    -cottage cheese, sometimes low fat sometimes full fat
    -"orange Julius" with whey protein powder
    -strawberry-pineapple-orange smoothies with whey protein powder

    I made an almond flour chocolate cake but it was really grainy and didn't taste great. I think I prefer coconut flour to almond but I plan on cooking more with both.

    I wasn't thrilled with how my cocoa crack turned out but I think with some more experimentation I can make it into something pretty good.

    I tried making coconut flour blueberry pancakes this morning. They were very crumbly and maybe would make better biscuits than pancakes. I'm not a big fan of coconut but the coconut and blueberry flavors together topped with a little butter was very nice.
