Dad was in town and took me to a fancy steakhouse called Lawry’s. Or as we found out, they only serve ONE type of steak – prime rib!
Here is my meal (thick cut steak and creamed spinach):
My dad is a carb addict, there is no stopping him. Here is Dad’s meal (the slimmest cut of meat, bread, yorshire pudding, creamed corn, creamed spinach and mashed potatoes):
I only finished about half my steak and Dad, who isn’t much of a meat eater, only ate about 2/3 of his.
NOW I should add that if you eat TOO MUCH PROTEIN IT WILL GET CONVERTED TO GLUCOSE and then act like a carbohydrate! So I obviously went a lil cray cray with the meat on Friday night but hopefully made it up with my bike ride the following day.
So before my ride, I needed food. I will admit that I got the breakfast of champions: An Egg McMuffin sans the Muffin. Been in ketosis for about two weeks now and hoping that I can start seeing some benefits to not needing to eat during longer rides (until after the 2.5 hour mark) and using fat as a fuel. Still got some more work to do in this area (especially quantitatively) but will update when I get in a groove!
