    Steak

    When I start my bulking cycle, which will be in October. I am gonna try to gain 15-25 pounds. I have heard that steak is a great mass builder. Steak is about $4 for 16 oz. I was thinking of eating 8 -16 oz of steak every day. Would this have any adverse side effects to my health, because I have also heard your supposed to take in meats in moderation.

    Please...if you need to moderate something in your diet, make it high glycemic carbohydrates and sugar. They're evil.
    Now a steak sounds good to me.
    But then, I'm not a nutritionist, I only know what works for me. And steak does.

    well....not that i have anything against steak...(which i think is a good choice) but i'm a firm believer in variety....mix it up some...get some bulk chicken breasts too, get some eggs...get some fish.....otherwise you might get bored and run the risk of being "steaked out". and not want to eat it again for months or years.....

    I won't even comment on that last line sav...

    Anyhoo, I say eat as much steak as you can. Since you aren't cackerot, you're not going to be bulking forever, so I don't think you should worry too much about the negatives associated with red meat. 16-24 oz of red meat every day helped me gain some good weight the last time I bulked.

    I agree w/Tryska...eat steak, by all means, but mix it up with some other proteins. The variety will keep things interesting AND give you a better mix of various nutrients.

    The only thing I would watch w/ lots of steak is your cholesterol level. If you have a predisposition to higher blood pressure, lots of red meat may not be the best diet.

    If you can get it, how about buffalo, beefalo, or venison? Lean red meat extraordinaire!

    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    From what I'm reading, dietary cholesterol levels are not a factor for most people.

    Lol at Gino.

    I would mix it uplike Tryska said.
    There was only so much steak I can take in while bulking.
    I grew tiered of eating 12 ounces a day.
    I'm saving my steak for my dieting days.

For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.

    i agree with paul. My uncle ( a rather plump man) would eat every part of any meat he was served. His favorite was beef gristle, you know the white fatty tissue surrounding any beef cut. His cholesterol was never about 140 and he loved beef fat!

    Dietary saturated fat is a bigger factor than dietary cholesterol in terms of raising blood cholesterol.

    1 steak has about 8g of saturated fat as long as it is broiled.

    Just add that to your count for the day and watch what else you eat that is high in sat fat.

    I agree that dietary cholesterol is not a problem for most people, but for that small part of the population that is prone to it, it can be serious.

    A lot of it is just plain old body chemistry. My dad can eat anything and still have low cholesterol/low BP. His brother has to watch his diet AND take BP medication to keep his cholesterol and BP down.

    He also had a heart attack at 42 despite eating relatively cleanly and being very physically active. His doctor said he is just one of those people prone to problems in this area.

    I guess you just have to know your own body and listen to it...

    Also remember that while heart disease is linked to bp/blood cholesterol, it is not a 100% correlation.

    ie. Just because you have proper bp and blood cholesterol does NOT guarantee you a healthy heart.

    The safest thing is to eat clean and keep dietary sat fat and cholesterol in moderation.

    I've been reading some abstracts and discussions on mfw regarding some of these issues.

    Your body makes more cholesterol that you eat in a day... the main factors in elevated blood cholesterol are genetics and bf%.
