Default Beef vs Chicken, Your body's reaction

Since I started training I've learned to listen to my body. I pay more attention to how I feel after eating certain foods. And I've noticed a difference between beef and chicken.

After eating beef, i become very lethargic, very sleepy, and very thirsty. I have to drink a lot of water after eating beef. If i eat beef after a workout, I feel more recovered and stronger, the next day. But if i eat too much beef, I start to feel like shit. Lets say i eat beef 3 days in a row, i get bloated, and i feel like I'm retaining a lot of water. So,i limit beef to just 1 or 2 meals a week.

After eating chicken, I'm not as sleepy or thirsty compared to eating beef. I can eat chicken all-day & everyday and I never get bloated, I feel OK. But if i eat chicken after a workout, i don't feel as strong & recovered the next day.

Have any of you noticed the same reactions between the two meats?

No, I have not.

I actually feel more hungry after eating chicken. Beef is more satisfying for me.

Are you talking steak or ground beef? Everybody should feel great after steak. I could see ground beef not being as satiating. I get bitchy if I don't eat steak after awhile. Try bison. Eat pork chops.

I forgot to ask...how are you eating these? Plain? With different or the same side dishes?

Water intake can be strongly related to sodium and carbohydrate intake. Just curious if the side dishes and seasonings were equal.

Ground beef, I basically just make patties and bake them in the oven. I'll add some "Mrs.Dash" seasoning. For condiments I may use a little ketchup or hot sauce but i use those on the chicken to.

If i want steak, I'll go out to eat.

Edit* I haven't had a actual steak in probably 2 months

As for side dishes, their all the same. Its usually green beans, brussel sprouts, or broccoli. Hadn't thought about the kind of beef i was eating. Its just ground beef.

This is me too. However I do prefer a beef meal after training, I feel better. My Go to in a non calorie restricted world would be Fried basmati rice with a bit of real butter, steak mince and some vegetables! Winner!

I wondered that.

It's quite puzzling if that's not it.

What I'm eating is "ground beef". I buy the 70/30 blend, which is cheaper but also much fatter. You can cook it for a long time but its still greasy. The chicken i eat is lean breast meat, almost no fat on it at all.

Maybe having all that fat & grease in my stomach is why i feel so bad after eating the beef.

I'll have to test my theory... I can try eating steak and see how i feel. If the steak doesn't bother me, its that dame greasy hamburger meat thats making me sick.
