Amazing water weight loss; 96% lean beef.

WOW! I expected to lose some water weight yesterday (that’s the whole point of the end-of-cut “Peak Week” diet), but I was still shocked when I stepped on the scale this morning: 187.2 pounds! That a little over two pounds less than yesterday’s weight, which was already a 2007 cutting low. I guess I didn’t expect that much water loss so quickly.

I can’t say I looked any more ripped this morning than I did yesterday, but maybe a bit more vascular. My muscles still look full and are not “flat” at all, and that is a huge relief.

So, about the 96% lean ground beef I’m been eating? It’s really, really good! It’s a tad more dry than fatty ground beef, but I don’t mind that at all. In fact, Lisa had one last night, only she had it on a bun with all the “normal” stuff on it. She said it was every bit as good as a regular burger, and didn’t seem dry at all to her.

6 ounces of 96% lean ground beef contains less than 290 calories, less than 12 grams of fat, under 6 grams of saturated fat, no carbs and almost 45 grams of protein. Compare that to 6 ounces of 70% lean ground beef, which has over 450 calories, around 30 grams of fat and 12 grams of saturated fat. I know what I’ll be using from now on, even for a cheat meal that calls for ground beef.
