BAHAHAHAHA!! ugh... i was so hungry..and we had no eggs in the house (my quick fall back plan when i want to eat anything un-healthy) and so i thought..oh..i will just cook up some exta lean ground beef we have in the fridge and i will be fine..So i measure it quickly..oh 425 grams...not bad..then shoved it in the frying pan and proceeded to cook it..stuck it in my bowl and then proceeded to sit in front of the tv and eat my bowl of beef..thats it ..just beef..nothing else..Welllll...let me tell you at the end of the bowl.. i was stuffed and feeling rather sick..from eating so much..and it sat really heavy and i thought "well at least i have no cravings for sweets anymore"..so i went to lay down on by bed like a beached whale.. and i was talking to my hunny on the phone over text and told him i ate 420 grams of ground beef for lunch cause i was so desperate to end the cravings and my need for food.. and he said to me "You ate 1 pound of ground beef in a sitting for lunch!!! "

After talking to him.. i thought "OH MY GOSH! I ATE A POUND OF COW!"
Well, people who say you cant binge on protein..your wrong! You can.. i did..and in front of the tv too!!

I love hamburger and could easily eat a pound without thinking about it.
I've done this more than once - bought a pound of really good ground beef, made 3 or 4 patties with the intent of eating one and having the rest over the next couple days and by the end of the night all the patties are gone. I've done the same thing with ground turkey. I think it's the texture as much as anything, the chewiness or something but i just love the stuff.

So i don't buy a pound of ground meat any more - if i need a burger i eat out somewhere i know has excellent 4 or 6 ounce burgers.

But, wait a minute, eggs are your unhealthy fall back plan? SInce when are eggs unhealthy? They're one of the best foods you can eat!

Though, a pound of beef - wow! And plain, nothing else? LOL Guess it means no more eating in front of the TV.

I'm not sure I could eat that just by itself. Having burgers tonight but with some toppings, roasted brussels sprouts and baked fries.

i think she said she was out of eggs, her unhealthy food was something else.

i understand your train of thought...and not terrible for calories.

Oh goodness, a pound of cow. Delicious, yet at the same time so heavy. Not really that bad, though, if it's only 550 calories.

i think it definitely could be the meds.

and i've heard of worse. some people crave raw beef.

02-26-2011, 12:12 PM
katy, I love raw hamburg. ;-)

Sounds perfect to me, I would have eaten the 1 pound I cooked last night, but I made 4 patties and husband snagged two! Rats, I wasn't quick enough!

02-26-2011, 12:43 PM
If it kept you full that long, it sounds like it was the perfect thing to eat.

May be something you want to remember when you want to have that 'I splurged' feeling.

Sounds like a go-to plan to me!

Lol..it was a lot of beef..so much so that for dinner all i had was a cup of chia pudding..cause i still felt so full from the beef.. i was practically burping beef taste the whole night..its now morning and i finally feel like its digested..but man.. i think next time i wont do that..eggs are always my go-to-food when in need.

people can eat raw hambergur? really????? isnt that illegal??? i know you cant order one of those in a restraunt here in BC.

02-26-2011, 01:06 PM
Two mistakes - eating a pound of cow and eating mindlessly in front of the tv. Designate a spot in your house for eating, not in front of the tv or reading, etc. and only eat there. Then you can pay attention to what you are doing. That was almost 3 times more protein than you should eat in a day.

Are you sure no restaurants sell steak tartare? That's a raw beef dish. I'd never eat it in a million years, but it exists!


I don't like beef, and can't quite imagine just eating big bowl of it plain! lol But oh well, definitely worse things you could eat in big amounts!

Maple flavored sausage links --- this is my weakness. I was dillusional enough one day to think I could cook up a pound and only have a couple links and put the rest in my fridge for another day. Ummm, yeah.... I don't think I need to tell you how that plan worked out! LOL I felt like you did but at the end of the day, it was certainly not a set back. OK, it didn't move me forward that day but it certainly didn't erase the hard work I had put in the weeks prior. And to be honest, I think it jumpstarted my metabolism a little bit. Go figure!

Don't fret sweetie. I do agree that eating in front of the TV is a good habit to get out of but you obviously learned a lesson from this and that is the most valuable thing here. :-)

It's all good. I promise!

Lol, i was just really hungry and i dont know..i was being stupid..i eat in front of the TV all the time, it never inhibits anything..Im not the type to binge eat in front of a TV..esepcially since ive lived like this for a couple years. We dont have a table or chairs to sit at and eat so we eat on the floor in the living room...and 2) Yes it was a very high amount of protein and fat..and thanks for clarifying a portion..cause i never actually knew how much one portion of ground beef was....i mean..people eat a steak that weighs a pound..not much difference between that and ground beef.

02-26-2011, 06:07 PM
A portion of ground beef is 3-4 oz raw, which depending on leaness is about 20-25 grams of protein. So you ate about 80-100 grams of protien in one sitting.

While yes, you could have made worse choices for a binge, I'm not really clear why you didn't attempt to make the meal more balance. I mean 16 oz of meat...whoa! Keeping you full is great, however, you metabolism thrives on eating several times a day, eating less often slows your metabolism down. So next time, maybe cut that serving down and throw in a pound of veggies, I promise you'll be full.
