Meat and Poultry

I don't want to write this post. I don't want to do this rule. I don't want to make these recipes.

But I have to.

Select a maximum of 5 weekly meat meals (luncheon or dinner) from Group A (Chicken, Turkey, Pheasant, Organ Meats, and Rabbit) and/or select a maximum of 3 weekly meat meals from Group B (Beef, Frankfurters, Lamb) 

Portion control is KEY here. For luncheon, 4 ounces of cooked meat may be selected. For dinner, 6 ounces is permitted. It is advised that you weigh your portion. I repeat. WEIGH YOUR PORTION. Do not screw around with this.

Remove all visible fat. Broil, boil, bake or roast ONLY. And for the love of all that is holy --- NO MEAT AT BREAKFAST!

Oh - and lest we forget. Liver is REQUIRED once per week. So figure out when you are gonna fit that into your repertoire.

If I had my druthers, I would completely skip this chapter. I would be perfectly happy without the meat. Without the liver. Without the frankfurters. But - since it is the longest chapter in the book (40 pages), I assume this is an important rule. So onward we go...

As I work up the courage to prepare my next meaty recipe, please enjoy a few Retro WW meat photos.

Why can't we just grill up a nice chicken breast on the Retro WW Program? Why not just a simple frankfurter on a bun? Why must we do horrifying, traumatic things to our meat? I will never understand this.

We may need more than one week to explore this rule. Just sayin'.

Lord help you. You're going to be just like me when I was on Atkins. Meat. Meat. More Meat. Meat.

Any diet that encourages the consumption of frankfurters can't be all bad - especially six ounces' worth...

I remember the liver rule. It was horrifying.

Well, meat is an essential part of a healthy diet, so this 5 weekly meals of meat sound like a terrific idea. And with a selection like that? I surely wouldn’t mind abiding to these rules. Cheers!
