    I’m sorry you’re struggling though but we are still way ahead in the T2 game. I caved and ate 6 big 100% choc buttons ten minutes ago. Ten years back it would have been six bars of Cadbury **** and a family sized bag of crisps so I rock!

    Are you on a carnivore FB group?

    Yes, the Carnivore diet recipes one. Dip in and out, but it gives me some good ideas.

    Can relate to that and yes, you do!

    Tonight’s dinner - oxtail. Yum. Having gone a bit astray, 2 days back on full carnivore/OMAD = 0.8kg down.

    Black meaty goodness. How much per kg do you pay for that?

    Now you’re asking. I think this batch was on offer and about £4 a kilo. Usually it’s around £8, I think.

    No. Not even cooked. Would like to include liver in my diet but initial experiments unsuccessful - due to taste mainly.

    I get through quite a lot of liver and kidney, just not raw. Will let you know how it tastes :playful:

    I love liver as does my daughter but I can’t convince the grandchildren so I mince it up and mix it with beef mince. They love that!

    I never got into kidney. My mum was an excellent cook and watching her prep them put me off for life.

    Guy walks into a butcher and asks for "a half a pound of kiddlies"

    Butcher says "you means kidneys don't you"

    Customer says "that's what I said diddle I?"

    It was a slack joke back in the days I was a butcher, :D

    A Kalkadoon man walks in to a butcher shop, and asks for $1.00 bitchenpeeches,

    The apprentice asked what did he ask for, I told him $1.00 worth of bits and pieces.

    I have never eaten raw liver, though we sold it in the UK minced up to people with anaemic kids.

    No way I would eat raw kidneys... :meh:

    OK @bulkbiker .... Do you use flour on them? I just need the recipe as it's been decades since I had them on toast. I just don't recall what my mum did but they were fantastic

    Nope just a heavy dose of black pepper, a pinch of salt and butter. Nothing else. Pan fry for 2-3 mins per side leaves a bit pink in the middle. Depending on thickness. I usually get ox at £1.60 a kilo over calves at £11 per kilo at my butcher. I can’t tell the difference in taste. Chicken livers also great cooked the same way.
    Nectar!

    Ok I’m going in. Gonna try carnivore just for this week and see how I go. Also I’m definitely going to include some raw liver, and may even have a go at a raw steak if I’m feeling brave.

    If I’m not back by tomorrow then dial 999 :shifty:

    Godspeed to you my good sir! Your sacrifice will not be forgotten! ;)

    Incidentally I have liver and kidney here every week, carnivore days or not! Never done it raw, did some mince raw before and found I could tolerate it. In fact I have rarer steaks now in restaurants and the like.
