Carb Counters - 3rd time around and getting sick of meat again

01-20-2008, 11:03 PM
I'm doing Lean For Life (low carb) and love it, but come the third week I'm always so sick of meat. I don't like meat that much to begin with. LFL does allow some beans and I eat fish and some cheese. I'm even doing protein shakes this time.

How do you all get this meat down over and over. Help. I don't want to quit because of the meat.

Um... I have not personally had success with low carb, but others on here have. I did South Beach for a couple of weeks but suffered headaches and lethargy, so I abandoned it.

But, I would suggest eggs (which I could eat every day) and nuts to replace some of the meat. Also, some grains might work, though I'm not sure. Quinoa, for instance, has something like 9 grams of protein per serving. Otherwise, I'm not sure what to say, but good luck to you!

How much meat are you eating? I have never read the complete Lean for Life, so I do not really know the program. But from what I read in the book Living the Low Carb Life, you are supposed to get your protein from meat, cheese and nuts. Are you eatting any nuts or cheese? Raw, unsalted almonds and macadamias are the best. But I also like raw, unsalted sunflower seeds. All the work to get them out of the shell is keeps you from over eating. Post a sample of you daily food. I am sure someone here can help you.
