I Ate Only Beef For 2 Days

Eating Only Beef For 2 Days Was Not Quite What I Expected

Today I’m starting 2 days of eating exclusively Beef. This is my 5th back to back 2-day challenge of eating only 1 food for 2 days.

Starting Weight 69.7 Kilograms or 153.7 Pounds

I want to know for myself and give you insight into what it’s like to eat beef exclusively. Will it be the best food in the world? Will I feel Great? Will it be completely different than I expect it to be?

If you want to get the full perspective of why I’m doing this, please refer to the 1st video in this series called “Fasting On Ginger Tea And Water Only

I’m going into this challenge very hungry as I’ve only eaten about 3 days’ worth of my total calorie needs in the last 8 days. I’m thinking beef is going to be one of the more nourishing foods and my body is going to thank me.

In addition, eating beef breaks my 8 days of vegan food challenges and that’s exciting because I generally like eating animal foods these days.

So I’ve had my 1st meal of beef and although it was very plain without salt or seasoning it did taste pretty good. I boiled the beef so it would be as health-promoting as beef can be.

Although I liked it, it started to get very rich after eating about 1/2 pound so I had to stop so I wouldn’t feel bad.

After having eaten it, I noticed my body got very relaxed and I also felt a little sleepy. I was wondering if the sleepy feeling had anything to do with my body getting real nourishment from the beef that I wasn’t getting enough of from the foods in the challenges of the previous 8 days.

My thinking was that my body might not have been able to relax enough, even when I was sleeping, while I was doing the single plant food back-to-back challenges because they weren’t nutrient-rich enough for my body to fully relax.

I wondered if the relaxing sleepy feeling might be a result of my body trying to heal, but I’ll probably know better after getting a good sleep tonight and eating beef again tomorrow.

Part 2 – Beef Is Not What I Thought It Was!

I had my 2nd meal of beef which was part of what was leftover from the 1st. I had put it in the refrigerator and decided to eat it cold.

I was surprised at how unenjoyable it was to eat ground beef cold. It didn’t taste good, but when I ate the fat on the plate with the ground beef it tasted pretty bad; Kind of bitter and weird, but I still imagine it must be nourishing.

I have generally felt good today, but the experience of eating this beef cold and having it be so unpleasant made me question my thoughts that tell me beef is one of the most health producing foods. I suppose it could be, even though it was so strange to eat this way, but this experience of eating Beef is so much different than I expected it to be at this point.

I came into this experience feeling hungry and that the beef was going to be the best thing I’d eaten in these challenges up to this point, but it turns out that in certain ways, it’s the worst so far.

I’m going to have to see how the rest of today and tomorrow go to get the full picture, but I’m a little surprised that I’m not loving this a lot right now.

Beef For Dinner

I just ate more beef for Dinner and it was a lot more pleasurable to eat than any other time today. It was 5% leaner, so that might be part of the reason why. It was also warm instead of cold, so that helped.

I feel just okay, but not great. My body feels strong, but I feel more tired than usual and my eyes are a little heavy. I also feel like my body will take a while to digest which doesn’t feel great.

I’m not used to eating this much beef at a time. I used to eat about a pound 1 time per day but then I switched to about 1/2 pound; I think my body is just not used to this amount.

Tomorrow will be my 1st workout on beef only so it’ll be interesting to see how I do. Another thing that’s a little different is that I’m on zero carbs today because of eating only meat. That’s not something I experience a lot so let’s see how it plays out.

Another observation is that my nose is producing a lot of mucus which I’m not used to. I’m not saying I never have mucus, but I haven’t had much for the last week with the other foods, and I rarely produce as much as I am right now.

Eating Beef Only Day 2 Starting Weight 68.95 Kilograms or 152 Pounds

The 2nd day of eating beef was good. The beef tasted good to me and I felt good all day long. I can say it got a little bit boring to eat towards the end of the 2nd day but I never felt like I was anxious to get started with the next 2-day challenge, so I could eat another food.

I unexpectedly went to the sauna today with Csilla of YouTube Channel BestBabe007 and I sweated a lot. That being said, I decided it would be a good idea to have a little Himalayan Salt in water; I had a 1/4 teaspoon. I didn’t intend to have salt during this time, but after reading and learning a lot about Hyponatremia I thought it would be smart to have a little more salt since I have had so little sodium over the last 10 days.

This morning I had a spiritual experience. It involved feeling joyful and thankful to God for all that I have. I felt so good and I feel like God showed me how to get out of my mind and into my body; How to connect to my heart instead of my brain.

I know that might sound a little WooWoo but I believe it’s something so transformational that I imagine it will have profound effects on the rest of my life. Maybe I’ll make a video about exactly this experience to get into this.

Summing things up, I can say of all of the 2-day challenges so far, I felt the best on Beef and the Watermelon was the most satisfying to eat.

From here I’ll go directly into my next 2-day challenge of eating 1 food exclusively and that next food is a drink. I’m going to be drinking only milk and eating nothing for the next 2 days. I have to say, I’m very excited because I love Milk.

Is Dr. Gil Carvalho’s Nutritional Advice Sound And Will Dr. Shawn Baker Or Bart Kay Challenge Him?

Will Dr Shawn Baker and Bart Kay Challenge Gil Carvalho’s Nutrition Science?

Vegan Doctor Gil Carvalho Is Preaching Old School Nutritional Advice

He truly reminds me of myself 10 years ago. I’m not saying Gil is wrong, but I would like to see him get fact challenged.

I 1st became aware of Dr. Gil Carvalho only a couple of days ago. The thumbnail of his Youtube video titled “Professional scientist answers nutrition questions” reads “Meat Vegan? Cholesterol Eggs? B12? Iron?”

This intrigued me because it wasn’t long ago I started eating meat and dairy after a very long Vegan and Vegetarian Adventure.

The short story is, he’s preaching typical Vegan Propaganda, and at 1st I thought he wasn’t even Vegan.

Now, I know he’s Vegan, or at least on some level he’s vegan, and I’m thinking his thinking is Biased, based upon that fact.

Things Very Good is about getting to the core of what’s truly healthful and good for us as humans, so I’m calling Dr Gil Carvalho out on his Nutritional Advice.

It’s my hope that people like Shawn Baker and Bart Kay will respond to his advice with some of their own, and show us why they don’t see eye to eye with Dr. Gil Carvalho.

PG Tips VS Yorkshire Red Black Tea

PG Tips Vs Yorkshire Red Tea Taste Test

Today I’ve got my family together to Taste Test PG Tips & Yorkshire Red Black Teas to let you know what we think is better.  Hopefully this will help you with your decision about which tea to buy.


I first tasted PG Tips at a cousin’s house, and couldn’t believe how good it tasted.  I usually go for organic teas, but PG Tips was the only tea he had that I wanted to try, and the experience turned out to be a nice surprise.

Later I wanted to get some PG Tips for myself, and that inspired me to look for other quality teas that were Specifically Tips.

To keep a long story short, I didn’t find another Tea Tip to try yet, but in the reviews I was reading about PG Tips some people were sharing that they liked Yorkshire Tea.

I decided to try it, taste taste it with my family, and share that experience with you.  Watch the video below to see which tea we thought was better.


Both Yorkshire Red and PG Tips are black teas, packaged in England, that are very popular in the United States.

I’m pretty sure the Yorkshire Red tea is not the tea tips, but I could be wrong about that.

One way or another, I hope you like this video, and it helps you to make a good choice between these two black teas.

On that note, I’m on the lookout for the highest quality teas, and I want to know what you are drinking and like.

I prefer organic teas, but I’m happy to know about any tea you think is super high quality and tastes great.

If you know any other companies that use the tips of the tea plant specifically, please let me know by commenting on this post.

Using the links below to buy your tea helps support Things Very Good.  Thanks for checking them out.

Top 3 Vegan Protein Powders Battle & Taste Test

Battle Of The Best Plant Based Protein Powders

Orgain Protein Powder Vs Now Organic Pea Protein Vs Root2 Organic Hemp Protein

Are you looking for the the best vegan protein powder money can buy?

Right here, on this page, we’ve compared 3 of the top Plant Based Vegan Protein Powders to help you decide which protein powder is best for you.

We’ve covered the important things you want to know about each protein powder:

  • Which protein powder tastes best?
  • Which one gives you the most protein for your money?
  • The protein powder with the highest amount of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids).
  • Which plant protein might be best for weight loss and why?
  • Which vegan protein powder might be the best for muscle gains and why?

Things Very Good has tasted all 3 protein powders and you can see the reaction in the video on this page.

Vegan Protein Powder Taste Test Winner

For most people, the clear winner for taste is going to have to go to the Orgain protein powder. It’s texture is creamy and the taste is sweet.

If you prefer tasty to natural, you’ll definitely want to go for the Orgain based on taste alone.

NOW Organic Pea Protein Powder doesn’t have a strong taste, but it’s a little beany tasting. I personally don’t mind the taste, but I tend to not mind anything I think is good for me.

Overall NOW’s pea protein is pretty mild tasting and it’s also pretty plain; A little organic stevia and vanilla extract could make it taste pretty good.

Root2’s Hemp Protein Powder is a different story; You’ll most likely like it or hate it.

I think it has a very natural hempy taste, and it also tastes healthy and good to me.  That being said, it’s going to be an acquired taste for some people.

Which Plant Based Protein Powder Gives You The Most Protein For Your Money?

NOW’s Organic Pea Protein Powder is the clear winner here. It’s got 34 servings at 15 grams of protein per serving, and the price is great.  That’s 510 grams of plant protein per 1.5 pound bottle.

Orgain Protein Powder comes in 2nd based on the amount of protein it has and the amount of servings.  It’s got 20 servings at 21 grams protein per serving for a total of 420 grams per 2.03 pound bottle.

Root2’s Organic Hemp Protein has 11 grams of protein per serving and 15 servings, for a total of 165 grams of protein per 1 pound bottle.

Even though Root2 Hemp Protein doesn’t give you quite as much protein for your money, it comes pretty close to the Orgain based on the price.

If you were to have 3 bottle of the Root2’s hemp protein you’d have a little more protein than you’d have from 1 bottle of Orgain, and the price would be comparable.

Which Of These Vegan Friendly Protein Powders Has The Most BCAAs?

Serving to serving Orgain and NOW Pea Protein Powder are very close when it comes to the amount of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine they contain, but…

The Pea Protein has more BCAAs in a container, so you could consider the Pea Protein the winner.

Root2 Organic Hemp Protein Powder has less BCAAs than both Orgain and NOW’s pea protein, but it’s cost would make it pretty close to the value for BCAAs in Orgain, if you were willing to take more of it.

Is Orgain, Now Organic Pea Protein Or Root2 Hemp Protein Powder Better For Weight Loss?

Generally the more protein per serving, and more specifically the more BCAAs per serving, the better for weight loss, based upon 1 reason.

Protein calories in general are more satiating than calories coming from fat or carbohydrates.

Based on this fact, the protein powder containing the most protein per serving should be the winner, making it Orgain.

The above being stated, there’s more protein in a bottle of NOW’s pea protein, so if you have a larger serving of it, it might be the winner in terms of satiation, and as a result, possibly be the best for weight loss.

If you’re looking at the weight loss value from this point of view, Orgain and Root2 Hemp Protein aren’t 2 far off from each other.

The OTHER Weight Loss Ingredient In Hemp Protein Powder

Hemp protein powder does have a higher amount of Arginine than NOW Pea Protein and Orgain Protein Powder.

There has been some research showing that Arginine could be good for loosing fat and retaining lean muscle mass. That being said, Hemp Protein Powder contains more arginine than both Pea Protein and Orgain Protein Powder.

Which Of The Plant Proteins Is the Best For Muscle Gains?

When it comes to muscle gains the 1st thing to remember is it’s about having enough protein, no matter what the source; It could be from a good protein powder or from food.

That being said, BCAAs have been shown to help with gaining muscle, and of the 3 protein powders we’ve reviewed here Orgain has the highest amount of BCAAs per serving.

Again, you could look at how much BCAAs your getting for your money, and make an argument that the the hemp or pea protein powders we’ve reviewed here might be better for building muscle.

One great thing you might want to know is there has been a study comparing participants taking whey protein, pea protein, and a placebo; The subjects taking the pea protein gained the same amount of muscle thickness as those taking whey protein.

The placebo group didn’t experience any gains in muscle thickness. The take away is plant based protein does help you to gain muscle mass in conjunction with resistance training.

So What’s The Best Vegan Protein Powder Of The 3?

The best protein powder is the one you’re going to take, 1st of all.

If you know you’ll only consume it if it tastes good, and your idea of tasting good is something that’s got some added flavor, Orgain might be the best protein powder for you.

You’ll be happy to know, all 3 of these protein powders passed the Things Very Good test for quality of ingredients.

I’d recommend trying them all out and sticking with the one that you like best; or maybe changing them up from time to time.

That’s what I’m going to do.

Based upon purity of ingredients and cost, I really like NOW’s Organic Pea Protein and ROOT2’s Organic Hemp Protein Powder.

You’re only paying for the protein with these 2 products because that’s the only ingredient they contain.
