    I haven't heard of the kind of steak you mentioned, but I know grocery stores are trying to get the cheaper cuts displayed, as the price of beef has gone up so much. It's not the farmers and ranchers that raise the cattle that are getting the increase, by the way. I did splurge and buy a T-bone from a private butcher shop recently and was disappointed. It was supposed to be farm-direct, and while it was tender enough and just the right amount of marbling, it was so-so on flavor. However, a steak I had a couple of weeks ago at work related dinner at a fancy restaurant (half of, as at $56 a serving, we split it!) was out of this world. The restaurants get the prime stuff, I guess.

    Now I want one.

    I stayed down that pound! Woop woop. One day at a time. I would like to have some leeway when traveling next week!

    Onward!

    The filet is one half/side of a porterhouse steak. It's usually very lean and tender. And expensive! The NY strip makes up the other half.

    We used to buy organically raised beef from an amish farmer friend when we still lived in PA, 1/4 cow at a time. You can definitely tell a difference between that and what you can find at the store! We could get it cut and freezer packed at the butcher exactly how we wanted it, which was nice, too!

    I think that finding an ethical farmer who will butcher a quality cow for you is going to be the way going forward with beef especially. Its going to be the only way to counter how they are messing with our food supply, not just with medications but with altered and inferior feed sources. Like has been mentioned, you can tell something is going on because the steaks seldom taste right anymore.

    JennyV, I learned to love the fatty cuts when I switched to a ketogenic diet and ultimately lost 55 lbs with hcg and keto. I'm also making sure I don't discard the gristly bits which are made up of collagen.

    I'm convinced eating fats keeps the weight off. They keep me satisfied and help avoid snacking, don't spike insulin, and don't give body excess BS to convert to stored fat. Maintenance is much more difficult than weight loss; I had to learn a completely different way of eating.

    PearlyMae, I find ribeyes are still pretty good, and chuckeye - from the same muscle as ribeye - are a decent cheaper alternative.

    I don't have a problem eating fats. I just don't want to eat fat. Like fat in meat. It's a texture thing. But I can tear up some avocado, or nuts or PB or cottage cheese, or pretty much any kind of vegetable fats. And I love bacon. But I hate the gristle. It literally makes me gag.

    mmmmm....I love the gristle and connective tissues. One of my favorite cuts has always been veal breast....so much chewy unctuous goodness on those ribs.

    Sirloin or skirt steak is very lean with good flavor but needs to be tenderized with marinade to tenderize it a bit because it is very lean

    You can cut a good filet with a fork, it's so lean/tender! Ugh. Now I want Outback!

    Up .2 today. Weighed in early. Also started my period... right on time, despite the medication that was supposed to push it back til like Sat! My body is gonna do what it wants, progesterone be damned! My two week PI may step back into only a one week PI if it means working with my hormone cycles rather than against them.

    I love steak too, but the price these days is ridiculous..

    Been eating more burgers I make myself, and I use a gluten free filler. I seem to be okay with that.

    Had Hearts of Palm spaghetti last night, I didn't cook it long enough so will try again one night. It was good anyway, just would have preferred a bit softer.

    @ Leez, hoping you get back to LIW from the Picnic.

    @Jenny, my daughter is like you and yes its a texture thing with meats. Even chicken has to be a certain way or she doesn't like it.

    I ended up taking my husband to the Doctor yesterday. He may have pneumonia. This is a new Doctor, and he gave him Amoxicillin, so will see if that does it or not. If not, I will take him to the Hospital next time. He gave a weeks worth of medicine so will see.

    That was a few hours out of my day, so didn't get what I want done. Will see what I get done today.

    Praying your husband responds well to the meds, Jayk. Praying for you too, to stay strong and hopeful.

    Steak day was a success. Down 2 pounds and back in my window, but not quite at LIW. And...bonus.....my steak tasted like a steak.

    JayK-- Yes! No tendons, and all the fat trimmed off! I am sorry to hear your hubby is sick. Sending prayers for a speedy recovery.
