Why do people complicate things?
Why is it that when they’re trying to lose weight, they spend tons of money on unnecessary things?
Diet programs, pills, trainers, fitness classes, etc.
I’m a simple guy.
I hate complicating things.
When I discovered the steak and eggs diet, I was one happy man.
It was the easiest, fastest, and most effective diet I ever tried.
It was created by Vince Gironda, but everyone called him the Iron Guru.
He was one of the most popular trainers and bodybuilder’s in the 1950’s.
He wanted to create a diet effective at burning fat, keeping testosterone levels up, and maintaining steady energy.
…And he succeeded.
No calorie counting.
No measuring food.
No complicated recipes.
Just easy and fast weight-loss.
It’s my recommended diet to anyone interested in burning fat quickly.
The Steak and Eggs Diet Explained
It’s as simple as it sounds; you eat steak and eggs, cooked in butter.
“What?!… Are you kidding me?… Eat pure fat so I can have a stroke from high cholesterol?”
Relax, my friend.
I had the same concern.
Turns out that eating foods high in fat and cholesterol doesn’t necessarily increase your cholesterol.
The first thing that came to mind was verifying what age Vince Gironda passed away.
He lived up to age 79, which is fairly old.
…But then I dwelled on the fact that everyone is different.
I couldn’t get my mind to accept that eating steak and eggs would be healthy.
After plenty of research, I discovered people were reporting improvements in their blood work!
Their testosterone and good cholesterol levels increased, while their bad cholesterol decreased.
They also claimed feeling amazing and that the only “tough part” was that it was boring diet.
Of course, eating the same thing daily will get boring quick.
I don’t know about you but if you tell me I could burn fat fast, increase my testosterone, and see improvements in my blood work; I don’t care how boring the diet is.
I’m doing it!
So after all the great stories and reviews, I decided to give it a shot.
I bought some T-bone steaks, organic eggs, and organic butter (more on this below).
After 5 days, I could not believe how fat was just melting off!
I felt great, stronger, and leaner.
I wasn’t hungry throughout the day and my energy levels were consistent, no energy crashes.
My workouts were intense and I felt motivated to push myself to the limit.
How to Start Steak and Eggs
You eat steak and eggs for 5 days and then have a cheat day on the 6th.
The cheat day has a purpose and actually boost your weight loss.
This diet works amazingly well because it contains zero carbohydrates.
When your body doesn’t have carbohydrates, it burns your fat stores for energy.
After 4-5 days of low carbs, you’re muscles are depleted of glycogen and your leptin levels drop.
Leptin is a hormone in your body that regulates fat burning.
In order to keep these levels high, you need to spike them back up.
When you have a cheat day, your insulin levels spike and your leptin resets.
There’s plenty of details regarding leptin and fat burning, but I won’t waste your time.
Just know that it works!
Five days of steak and eggs, and one day of eating whatever you want.
Simple, just how I like it.
Are there limits on how much you can eat on your cheat day?
No, not exactly.
However, I don’t recommend you go overboard to the point that you feel sick.
Don’t worry about what you eat, but don’t stuff food in your mouth just because it’s a cheat day.
Allow yourself sweets and even alcohol if you want.
How Many Meals Daily?
The steak and eggs diet allows you to eat twice a day.
You can choose either breakfast and lunch, or lunch and dinner.
I prefer to at lunch and dinner because skipping breakfast is easier.
You’re allowed to drink water, unsweetened tea, and black coffee.
I drink a cup of black coffee in the morning which curbs my appetite until lunch time.
It is recommended that you eat the fattier meats such as T-bone, Rib eye, and Strips.
Organic eggs and butter are also recommended.
They haven’t been fed a crappy diet, taste a lot better, and are healthier. You can buy Kerrygold butter here if they don’t carry it in your local supermarket.
However, if you’re seeking a cheaper option, you’ll still get great results with regular eggs and butter.
To cook your steak and eggs, throw butter in the pan and wait for it to melt.
Seasoned your steak with salt and pepper if you’d like.
Cook the steak on both sides until it looks ready.
Remove when done and throw your eggs in using the butter and steak juice leftover.
You can prepare your eggs any way you’d like.
Scrambled, boiled, or friend.
As far as how much butter to use, there are no limits.
Use enough butter that your pan is fully covered.
I typically use two big scoops.
Remember, you don’t count calories on this diet.
It works, and that’s all you need to worry about.
I usually prepare both meals at the same time so I only have to cook once.
This diet is more mental than anything.
It’ll be boring, if you say it’s boring.
Remember that it’s only five days before you’re allowed a cheat day.
You can do it.
Give the steak and eggs diet a try!
