[Failed] No red meat for 30 days ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Discussion
Soooo, I'm challenging myself not to eat red meat for the next 30 days. The goal of this is to see if there is an impact on my LDL levels as I'm trying to reduce it at the moment.
@syswarren an opportunity to eat more ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿค
@syswarren How do you measure your LDL levels? Do you eat red meat more than once a week now? Good luck ๐Ÿฎ
@abadesi I think I was eating red meat about twice a week if not more. I decided to cut because of my LDL levels which were not too high but not optimal either. My goal is to be as healthy as I can be. Right now, I measure my progress with an electronic cholesterol monitor. Not the funniest thing to use ๐Ÿ˜ถ
@syswarren Great goal ๐Ÿ™ Iโ€™ve also been trying to reduce the amount of red meat I eat. Finding tasty alternatives helps. Like beef meatballs ๐Ÿ‘‰ turkey meatballs and pork sausages ๐Ÿ‘‰ turkey sausages. Good luck ๐Ÿ˜„
@syswarren one week in, how are you feeling?
@ayrton So far it's okay. I only had to skip a delicious burger with a friend but had chicken instead ๐Ÿ˜Š
@syswarren worry no more, I can have all the red meat you won't eat. ๐Ÿ˜I got you!
@syswarren I've been cutting out red meat as well lately. About three weeks in now and it's not so much that I miss red meat as much as I really hate chicken now lol. Trying to include more turkey and fish to keep things varied. Absolutely feel better now though. Good luck!
@jakecrump I honestly would kill a beef for a burger right now.
@syswarren Hahaha, to be fair, if someone put a giant burger in front of me this very moment I would have zero self control. Purging the house of all red meat is honestly the only reason I've lasted this long.
@syswarren @jakecrump I keep seeing adverts on TV from "the pork farmers of UK" talking about how pork fillets are leaner and cheaper than chicken breasts. Maybe you could be tempted ๐Ÿ–
[Update] I failed. I had red meat. It was delicious, I lasted from March 24 to April 19. I'll try to limit my red meat consumption to a minimum but a girl gotta enjoy some steak.
@syswarren 24 days of a Parisian avoiding steak - that's not a fail in my eyes ๐Ÿ†
