Bacon as "protein supplement"!

Just a thought.

What with all the "bacon is awesome" threads and all the "what's the best/most pure/closest to paleo protein supplement?" threads, I'm amazed I haven't seen this idea in writing before.

Paleo protein supplement? Bacon bits! post workout protein? bacon!

Beef jerky (if you made it yourself or got some without all the nitrates) would also work.

I'm done now.

Re: Bacon as "protein supplement"!

why don't you check the nutrition facts of bacon and get back to us.

if you think something that's 70% something other than protein is a good "protein supplement," then have at it.

i'll stick to eating steak/chicken for my protein

Ah, Renee, but bacon is the "perfect" food
70% of your diet should be fat, preferrably organically pastured animal fat,30% protien,
and limited carbs, ideally relatively seasonal vegs, below 100g per day. . .

THIS DESCRIBES BACON PERFECTLY!!!!

"stuff and nonsense" remember?

Thought occured to me in the shower after my 3rd 12-hour day in a row, and I haven't had a true day off (even a weekend day) either work or school in a month. Coherent thought is a challenge.

Not trying to turn this into a nutrition-thread argument, but I'm wondering if/how I'm the only one here who feels like absolute crap if I try to eat a diet that high in fat.

Re: Bacon as "protein supplement"!

I feel like crap if I eat a bunch of grains. JDell does not. There is a certian level of personallization that goes into diets.

I'm eating a bowl of meat and fat like it's soup.

Good point. Many people forget that diet's are NOT one size fits all.

Re: Bacon as "protein supplement"!

I have 4 pounds of bacon in my fridge now. Should last at least a week, maybe 10d and maybe even 2 weeks.

I find bacon an allowable guilty pleasure and snack late at night. Not only is it protein and fat but no carbs, I think. Better than eating buttered toast (which is damn good and you know it).
