Diet

I really just wanted to brag about what’s going in the 900 degree pizza oven lol, but it’s a decent topic.  I’m pretty much a low carb guy, but I’ll binge now and then, especially when the carbs are beer.  80-90% of the time though, I’m a Bill diet kinda guy

Out of the pizza oven

Finished product.  Really, really good way to cook good steak.

I love red meat. I pretty much don't eat it anymore unless on vacation or special occasions.  The reason is that it skyrockets my cholesterol levels thanks to my parents. :)

My wife is an oncology pa and think I’m gonna get cancer from eating read meat - I’ve cut back to once a week or two, so I make it count with a good steak

The studies correlating meat with cancer involve cheaply cured meats, and heavily charred meats. You'll be fine. I eat several pounds of red meat per week and have no worries. I'd rather get cancer than taste well done steak so it's a win win. I always do as rare as I can get.

One more shot for the pizza oven.  The nice thing is the oven was a $120 option for my smoker, so the steak also gets some smoke flavor too

That looks ridiculous. So when are you going to host the annual steak and pull up festival? I'm free most of this year.

That’s right! There’s nothing wrong with red meat at all. All lean meats are healthy for our bodies and will build strong bodies! Don’t buy the hype guys!

Yeah man tacos al pastor is my jam. Typically just called “street tacos” here. I eat Mexican food at least once a day. And when i dont, i refer to it as a “cheat” meal, since i am cheating on my #1 food choice by not eating it. Lol!

Honestly being Texan, i feel that good Mexican food is a part of the culture here. Most not from Texas assume we are big into barbecue, we kind of are, but most of us would rather grab a Mexican dish.

i would highly recommend that anyone not from a border state, or even from another country, if you ever visit here, go to the most hole in the wall Mexican inn you can find and enjoy. You wont regret it. The hole in the wall joints are the best ones 99% of the time.

i love Mexican food and Mexican culture in general. Im not at home if im not in short distance of at least 1 joint that serves street tacos and plays Tejano music. Imo, it really is part of the landscape here. And i wouldnt have it any other way.

I found this very true in Tucson, AZ.  We ate at several ma/pa Mexican joints and the food was outstanding.

I'm very jealous, I'm up in the cold north and our Mexican food is garbage. Last time I had good food was when I was out in California.

Some of the best food out there is at the fruit and veggie stands in central and Southern California. The avocados alone are worth a trip to Cali

Probably my favorite breakfast.  I could eat avacoado toast like this all freaking day long.  Pay no attention to the coffee cup.

With you on that brother... at work we always hit up the Jalisco's for some street tacos for lunch. For breakfast tacos, try refried beans, cheese and bacon. Team breakfast SOPs

Yeah, food is a funny thing - the answer you get all depends on the theory of the researcher.  In this case, a guy like Hornish would definitely agree that the heart would not like this type of food, but Attitia or Adkins May think I’m on the right track.  There are similarities between different ideologies, like fresh vegetables, lean meats, and refraining from sugar and refined foods, which, imo, should be a focus.  Genetics seems to be forgotten in most diets, though.  Everybody needs to figure out what works for them.  The most important factor though, is discipline.

For sure on the discipline aspect.

Some nice lean muscle building protein is a cheat meal? Looks like health food to me! 😉
