Default I just ate a big, plump 8 oz steak

..at 11 in the morning. **** yeah. It was juicy and delicious, veeeery lightly rubbed with olive oil and just a touch of salt and pepper, and some portabello mushrooms. And you know what? It felt freaking awesome

(Mostly because I'm affording it 500 calories (let me know if you think it should be more), and working into my daily allotment of 1200...but still.)

It feels kind of badass to know I can do ridiculous things like eat a big steak for breakfast...and I'm still going to lose a pound this week.

*victory dance*

Okay, bragging over...

I think you have to treat yourself every so often as long as you work it into your daily allowance of calories. Hope it was tasty!

much jealousy... i had an apricot, a clementine and a big cup of coffee for breakfast lol. i definitely agree with treating yourself on occasion, my favourite treat is wholewheat crackers with real butter and sharp cheddar cheese, yum!

Absolutely. I have easily fit some serious treats into my calorie allotments. And some that aren't NEARLY as healthy as a big chunk of animal protein like your steak, hehe.

Your body appreciates the variety, also. It'll thank you for all that protein!

Ooh, yummy!!! Good for you!!! I am a believer that we should eat the things we crave sometimes ~ yesterday it was a Cadbury Egg for me, and I fit it into my calorie allotment for the day. Gross, yes, but I'd been craving one for 4 days.

For breakfast on Sunday I ate my leftovers from dinner out the night before - half of what was essentially a cobb salad (lettuce, avocado, bacon, tomato, carrots) with bleu cheese dressing and a bison burger on top. Just that half was over 500 calories as well and it was amazing! I love low-carbing!

I lost 40 lbs between Nov 2010 and Nov 2011 doing low-sugar for my "50 Pounds in 50 Weeks" project. I bounced halfway back up so I'm back for more!

I think fat and protein make an excellent breakfast. I don't eat beef but if I did I'd eat it for breakfast.

Treats worked into the plan are a definite must. I have a cadbury egg waiting on me for Saturday. I am going to be doing 2 hours of zumba, so I will be earning it, lol.

I quit smoking on Oct. 20, 2008 Now I right and more.

Sounds delicious! And it's funny, but I wouldn't even consider this a "treat," just an occasional part of a well-balanced, healthy diet.
