At any time during P3 or P4 if, after weighing yourself in the morning, you see that you have gone over your LSW+2 you need to do a Steak Day THAT DAY!!
That day drink as much water all day as you can (tea & coffee is fine but no milk, cream or sugar). Do not eat anything else all day. For dinner have a HUGE steak! Eat as much as you can (hot sauces and mustard are fine but no sauces with sugars). You may also have an apple OR raw tomato. The next morning you should drop 1-4 lbs. If you’re still above LSW after a Steak Day or Protein Day what should you do? Consider doing a day or two of high protein (see below) then, if necessary, perform another Steak Day. Never do two Steak Days in a row!
It is very important to keep your weight within the LSW +/-2 because you are making a new set point for your body.
Protein Day (Steak Day Alternatives)
The key to a Steak Day is the very high protein diet so a few options have been created that you can try instead of a Steak Day.
OPTION 1: If you see your weight creeping up and want to avoid a Steak Day then the following is an option. Drink a lot of water throughout the day, skip breakfast, at lunch eat a whole can of water packed tuna or chicken (can be mixed with 1 tsp mayonnaise) on lettuce or with celery, have a big portion of protein at dinner along with a small salad. If you cannot skip breakfast, two eggs are allowed. This option is not intended to replace the Steak Day but only to drop some weight when you are getting close to a required Steak Day. It will usually bring your weight down a pound or so the next day.
OPTION 2: Try a Salmon Day. Simply replace the steak with salmon and still have an apple or raw tomato. This option seems to have results fairly equal to a Steak Day. Great for blood type A.
OPTION 3: Steak is high in fat and protein so in keeping with those two qualifications, eat mostly proteins throughout the day in large quantities. Choose ones that are high in fat and high in calories! Some choices might be: eggs, cottage cheese, yogurt (plain), cheese, almonds, peanut butter, fish (salmon, tuna, etc.), chicken, etc. Eat a lot of vegetables. You may also eat fruit. Do not eat any starches or sugars.
