Erin asked a very good question... she asked if I measure my meat raw or cooked. I measure it raw, since that is what you're supposed to do. 3.5 ounces raw comes out to about 2 ounces cooked.

She also pointed out that I ate 3.5oz of COOKED GROUND BEEF!!

Um, oops!?!? Ha ha, I didn't even think about that. Good thing Erin is a smart one!

That could very well be why I only lost half a pound despite drinking so much water and tea that I literally was in the bathroom every 8-10 minutes. All. Day. Long.

Thanks, Erin!!! And I'll have to look and see if Republic of Tea is in my grocery store. Right now I have Celestial Seasonings and Stash.


  1. I am just so fascinated with your diet! Thanks for sharing this with us.

    If you like the fantasy food that you're pretty sure you know what it is...I have some nice pictures coming. Did that make sense?

  2. Hey, RA... dang, I am blushing... to see my name in a post when I hardly ever comment... doh. :) Thanks for answering the question... just was wondering.

    If you can't find Republic of Tea in the regular tea/coffee aisle, look in the health foods section or something... you are in Seattle; I would HOPE your grocery has it. I have to buy it at our local coffee/tea shop (coffee house), but at least I can find it here. It is very tasty! I'm guessing you wouldn't even need the Truvia...

    love ya,

  3. I have to admit that I've always measured my meat after it's cooked. I had no idea it was the raw weight! I guess that means I've been overdoing it on my meat portions...
