Talking A girl trying to find her Metabolism Miracle...

Hello everyone. My name is Dani and I am 28 turning 29 in a few weeks. I am a teacher from Staten Island, NY. I am currently still in school finishing my M.S. I have been overweight as long as I can remember. I always had problems finding "cool" clothes that fit. I have to say that I was fortunate in the fact that I was never bullied because of my weight. I don't know whether kids were afraid I would sit on them or what. Lol. I am a confident woman and I am not trying to lose weight to look better. I am trying to lose weight to feel better. My maternal grandparents, my mother and my aunt all have diabetes, and that scares the life out of me. Several months ago I lost my aunt to pancreatic cancer, and that was a real eye opener. I am only 28 and I am fearful of disease. I mean I am sure that no one enjoys disease, but the idea of being sick and unhealthy really scares me....So here I am on day one of the Metabolism Miracle. I know someone who has had great success with this....and I am going to be the next one. Day 1 was a little rough. Have a bit of a headache I can't break, and have hunger that can't be satisfied. I suppose this is my body going through carb withdrawl. The next few days will be rough, but I know it will get better after that. It is a pleasure "meeting" you. This is going to be me. Well carrots are high in carbs and I can't have them right now, but you guys know what I mean. Good Luck everyone! Dani

Dani How is your MM diet going by now? I started nearly the same time as you, on Aug 6th. I totally LOVE this low carb diet because we can acutally HAVE carbs!

How it is gong? I am trying to find a thread here with others using this diet, have you found any?

Curious how much progress you are both having? I bought the book on my kindle yesterday and so far am interested in starting. And I will admit the step 1 no list does scare me.

I never realized yogurt had carbs, in the past I have paid so much attention to fats and calories I guess I never noticed. I am a yo-yo dieter, I never keep it off.

Putting something in my mouth every 5 hours is going to be very difficult. My work schedule is hectic. Most mornings I eat breakfast around 7am then often I don't get a lunch until 3 to 4 in the afternoon. The best plan I have for that is to try to sneak some nuts in when nobody is looking..

jab.. Hi! I have been on the MM diet for nearly 5 weeks.

Don't let the "no" list scare you. If you eat as she says, you won't need to eat them, really. The cravings for those foods are gone and I feel satisfied when I eat like she suggests in Step 1.

Plus, I really like this diet, because you are ALLOWED 5 grams of carbs every 5 hours, and that is great! She sells a list for $3 of 5x5 carbs you can have, like 8 mini triscutts, or how many goldfish, etc, so every 5 hours you can have those 5 grams of carbs. I LOVE that since other low carb diets I have been on, not having ANY carbs is so very hard.

Do you not get a break at all? Maybe you could have a bathroom break and eat your small snack. It won't take long

I know we aren't supposed to weigh and I know why. My weight is going up and down all over the place. I do weigh and average by the week and last week, I actually gained. That is discouraging, but I realized I am eating too many nuts which are VERY high in calories, I must limit those.

My results so far are actually encouraging. I have only lost 2.6 lbs, but I have lost inches. I was to measure again after the 1st 4 weeks and truthfully I didn't expect much, but I have lost 2 inches on my bust, 1.5 inches on my bra line, 2 inches at my waist and an inch on my hips.

Part of the reason we never keep it off, is because once we get to the "end" of our diet, we start eating like we did before the diet. I have done that, but this system has to be for life for people with Metab. B, and that is what Step 3 is about.

I know I will have to keep this up for my life, and I have thought about it and decided if I do NOT do it, I will get diabetes, and then I WILL be on a diet for life! This is a better road for me, to be healthy and hopefully, thin, without the health issues that are coming my way if I keep on the same path of eating that I have been doing.

so I decided this diet is for me to help me for LIFE so I don't have to worry about the other health issues which would force a more strict diet upon me.

ask questions, I will try and keep a look out for them. This forum stops sending notices if you don't come here or post after a short time, so I don't always get them, but I will try if you will be here, So will I!

DO commit to this for 8 weeks, you will be glad you did! and look forward to feeling full and satisfied ...

Thank you for the info!!

Well I finished reading about phase I and decided to not read about the other phases at this time. I think it will only confuse me on what I can and cannot eat in the beginning. So today is day #1 assuming I make it till the end.

I'm hungry now but that is because I've been up since 5am working in the kitchen (of all places) canning tomatoes . I ate a few almonds then later had a thin slice of deli roast beef, along with more water.

I'm getting ready to make something to eat but needed to check my kindle to see what is allowed. I wish now I had bought the paperback because the kindle is more tedious to "find" something when I am in a hurry. I will have to check out the website and see what lists they offer regarding the carbs, thanks for the tip.

The yogurt is going to be hard for me, as is no brown rice, no oatmeal, no pumpkin, no fruit , and I've been binging on cherry tomatoes the past couple weeks which has to stop too...lol.

I know I am doing something with eggplant for dinner since I picked them out of the garden this morning.

Work is difficult. I have a supervisor who is a size 2 and I really don't want to have to explain my diet. She doesn't eat in front of ppl, I think it's an issue for her personally. Anyway I think I can manage some nuts in my pocket to get by. I am suppose to get a couple breaks in the day but it never happens we are over budget , under staffed and always buried...lol. Which is why I end up with a late lunch almost every day.

I figure this is worth trying for 8 weeks and see what I think at the end of that time. I have to do measurements today as well.

That is great you are starting! I kind of picked up recipes and ideas as I went. As I have time, I will post some recipes that I like here.

This is a link to a great blog I found alot of great info on as I see that they allow links to blogs. http://thelifeofsuz.blogspot.com/201...miracle-q.html

the web site www.themetabolismmiracle.com is a good place to get general info and if you want to buy the lists I was talking about. There is also a forum for this diet, but I don't want to join since it costs money, not alot, but you can check it out it you want at miracle-ville.com I heard it is a good place to get recipes and information and the lady who wrote the book is actually on the site and will answer questions personally as well.

I hope you can work something out at work. It is good you are busy, but eating every 5 hours is very important during Step 1, for sure.

I also have not committed to memory the next 2 steps because they are very different from Step 1. I am getting close to needing to look at Step 2...in 3 weeks I will be ready for that.

Keep checking back for recipes. I will put them here as I can. Do you do Pintrest? there are some recipes there as well.

Come back for more support or questions. I have had a hard time finding a free place to discuss this diet. I know one other person using it, so this is great to have someone else as well!

Default Baked Cauliflower Poppers

Baked Cauliflower Poppers These are ok for all Steps and are neutral .. Steps 1, 2 & 3

I like these. I usually only make 1 head at a time because I don't know how to store them, and usually eat them all when they are warm. Really YUM ! They taste kind of like french fries. Have a slightly crunchy taste if you let them brown good.

What you will need:

2 heads of cauliflower
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Wash and clean the cauliflower. Cut off and discard the stem. Cut the cauliflower up into small pieces.
In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the cauliflower pieces and thoroughly coat each piece.
Place cauliflower pieces onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for one hour and turn 3 times during cooking until each piece has a nice brown coloring. The browner they are the better.
Remove from oven and enjoy!

Default Thin and Crispy Pizza Crust

Thin and Crispy Pizza Crust

This makes alot, but it is very yummy!

Heat oven to 450 degrees

In a bowl thoroughly combine:
3 eggs
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp garlic powder (I used 1 pressed garlic clove.)
1 tsp basil (I used a bit less cause I don't like so much spice)

press evenly into Pam sprayed pizza pan or cookie sheet (I lined it with parchment paper instead.)
(this makes one 16 inch pizza crust)

Bake at 450 degrees until golden brown (about 10 to 15 minutes).
Add sauce and toppings, then bake or broil a few more minutes until cheese is melted and toppings are heated.

NOTE: Pizza Sauce is a counted carb in Step 1. I used jarred Ragu which doesn't have added sugar. I figured about 1 TBSP is about 1 carb.

Default Cheesecake Cup Cakes

Cheesecake Cup Cakes
(Metabolism Miracle Steps 1, 2, 3 all neutral)

These are yummy

6 ounces light cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
2 TBSP sucralose (Splenda)
1 large egg, plus 1 large egg yolk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Carb-free fruit spread, optional

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 6 muffin cups with foil or paper liners.
2. Combine cream cheese and ricotta cheese in a food processor or or use a hand mixer to beat until creamy. Add the sweetener, egg, egg yolk and vanilla and process until smooth.
3. Divide equally among the prepared muffin cups. Fill any empty muffin cups halfway with water.
4. Place muffin tin in a large roasting pan filled with hot water half way up the side of the tin, to prevent burning the delicate cheesecake. Bake 18-20 minutes until the cakes are puffed and set.
5. Remove the muffin tin from the water and let cool to room temperature.
6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours until chilled.
7. After chilling, top the cheesecake cup cakes with carb-free jelly, if desired.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post all of those recipes. I love roasted cauliflower and will definitely have to try the pizza and cheescake cups.

I made it through day one and stayed OP. Little bit of a headache and some cravings but not to awful. Although I was very busy yesterday.

I did have a "cranky" moment last night when the bf says to me do you want some ice cream. I'm like what part of I'm on a diet did you not understand and began to rattle off my options, including didn't you think it was odd you had mashed potatoes and gravy and I didn't and I pointed out I made your dinner differently... aaarrrgghhh. He then in a small voice says well I have no idea whats on your diet. I'm like there is no diet in the world where I get to eat regular ice cream. He then ate 2 ice cream sandwiches and a bowl of chocolate ice cream.... his ppl are all thin.

I made myself sf jello to keep in the fridge, so when he has his ice cream I won't feel tempted as much.

Last time I was dieting ( I managed to take off 63 lbs but lost a family member and just went on a bad roller coaster ride and gained it all back in the last year) I used a protein shake mix for breakfast. It was quick and easy, although I also added yogurt and fruit with spinach to it most of the time so it was a true "meal".

Anyway I picked up a can of the powder it's a whey & soy protein powder by Smart Sense (Kmart) and it has
Total carbohydrates 2g
Dietary Fiber 0g
Sugars 1g

If I read the book right this will be acceptable. I mixed it with unsweetened Silk Almond milk. Hopefully I haven't shot my day already because that is what I did for breakfast today.

That every five hour thing was harping in my mind and I thought it's been 12 hrs since I had anything (dinner was around 6pm, then bed at 10:30) and I probably am suppose to eat very soon after getting up. I should probably re-read phase 1 to be sure I got it right.

Just real quick....
the 2 grams in the protein drink needs to be added to the grams of carbs i the almond milk..look on page 65 . It says unsweetened almond milk is OK, and it has a * by it, which means you have to count the carbs.

gotta run...don't worry too much, just keep going forward and you will get it right after awhile. It is an adjustment.

I did add in the almond milk to my carbs. Its still difficult for me to understand which carbs count and which don't...lol. Again I wish I had bought paperback and not kindle version of this book.

I also find it's difficult to find a lot online about this diet, like acceptable food lists etc. I did find the chart from the book and printed that out to hang on the fridge to keep me straight on some of my veggie choices and remind me what is not allowed.

I did go to the websites you listed and I stumbled across another from that pin site (I'm not a member) that had awesome looking food but didn't see recipes attached, which frustrated me...lol. I finally paid for a brief membership to the MM website last night. So far it is confusing, and I was disappointed to see that even if you pay for membership to the site you still have to pay for those precious lists if you want them. On the upside of it if you read enough on the forum threads you are able to piece meal it together a bit.

I did print off a list of allowable bread choices which I had a pack of Mission Carb Balance tortillas in my hand earlier at the grocery store yesterday but as soon as I saw 6 carbs I put it down. I thought well I could cut them and then I thought maybe I misread and they are not acceptable on phase 1 so I put them back down (close expiration date and I thoght they won't last till phase 2 why bother) but on the website I see they are ok for phase 1 if you cut part off. So if I had the bread list beforehand it would have helped me when I was at the store shopping.

And I found this which I copied as well and will pass on :::

Below are the small amounts of fruits now allowed on Step 1 as a 5 gr. counter: Diane gave us a list on here last year at some point.
1/3 cup melon cubes
1/4 cup pineapple cubes
1/4 cup black berries or blueberries
1/3 cup raspberries
4 grapes
2 strawberries
1/3 of an apple/peach/pear

Since the book version I have says NO fruits I thought this might be useful info if you don't have it already.

Have a great day OP!!!!

The allowed food list in the book you will find on pages 62-72 if the pages are the same in the kindle version you have.

This is a really new diet, the book came out in 2009, so I have also found it hard to find info on line. I did have a friend who posted the "Yes" food list and I will post it here for you. I found some info on "dailymail" site which I could send you the links if you are interested, but there really isn't any more than what there is in the book.

Wow! fruits on Step 1? That is amazing to know. Yes, there are none listed in the book. I am glad you joined the forum over there. I did buy the list for Step 1, you can get it for just $3, you don't have to buy all 3 lists...if you scroll down on that page, you will see more options., if you want to know some of the lists I type them in here for you.

You have to look on the back of the pkg of tortillas, find "total carbohydrates" take that amount minus any fiber listed and that is the carb total.

I have some tortillas that have 12 grams carbohydrates and 7 grams fiber. You subtract 12-7 and get 5, this is allowed 5 grams every 5 hours.

It can get confusing, but you will catch on after awhile.

THE “YES” LISTS

*Starred items need to be counted in the 5x5 allowance.


Choose any of these proteins during any step of the Metabolism Miracle:
LEAN PROTEINS


Poultry
Chicken and turkey (white meat, skinless)
Cornish game hen
Be sure to eat poultry without the fatty skin.
(Rotisseried chicken, turkey bacon, turkey sausage, turkey kielbasa all have a higher fat content, so limit their use.)

Beef
Flank steak
Sirloin
T-bone steak, trimmed
Ground round
Porterhouse steak, trimmed
Filet mignon
Round steak
London broil
85–93% ground beef
Tenderloin
Rib roast
Rump roast
Chuck roast
Always trim any visible fat.

Fish and Shellfish
Cod
Tuna (fresh or canned in water)
Trout
Snapper
Flounder
Herring (not creamed)
Tilapia
Whiting
Haddock
Sardines
Sea bass
Pollock
Halibut
Swordfish
Mahimahi
Clams
Crab
Oysters
Lobster
Shrimp
Scallops
Imitation shellfish
Eat fish and seafood broiled, grilled, boiled, or steamed as long as you omit any breading, coating, or cocktail sauce.

Pork
Pork tenderloin
Canadian bacon
Canned, cured, or boiled ham
Trimmed pork chops
Fresh ham
Deli ham
Center-cut loin chops
Many cuts of pork are lean, but pork “products” such as sausage and patties contain added fat you should avoid.

Lamb, Veal, and Game

Roast lamb
Lamb chop
Leg of lamb
Lean veal chop
Veal roast
Venison
Skinless duck
Ostrich
Deer
Buffalo
Skinless pheasant
Rabbit
Be sure to trim all visible fat.

Cheese
Low-fat cheese
Low-fat cottage cheese
Grated cheese, such as Parmesan Cheese with 5 grams or less fat per ounce
Part-skim ricotta, mozzarella,vstring cheese
Choose low-fat cheeses and cottage cheese with 1% or 2% milk fat.

Eggs
Whole eggs (maximum 5 yolks/week)
Egg whites
Egg substitute

Soy Products
Tofu
*Unsweetened soy milk
*Vegetarian or soy-based meat substitutes
A half cup (4 ounces) of tofu has as much high-quality protein as an ounce of meat. When you opt for vegetarian meat substitutes such as veggie burgers or veggie nuggets, use the net carb rule to be sure that they have 5 grams or less per serving. Some veggie products contain hidden carbohydrate from chickpeas, lentils, or kidney beans.

Peanut and Nut Butters
Natural peanut butter (refrigerate after opening)
Natural almond butter (refrigerate after opening)
*Processed peanut butter or nut butters (use 5x5 rule)
Natural peanut butter, with only peanuts and optional salt as ingredients, offers the best choice during Step One because most processed peanut butter is sweetened with sugar. Just as you don’t have to be concerned about the carb content of nuts, you don’t have to count the carb in natural peanut butter. Processed peanut butter will require counting as a 5x5 food, due to added sugar.

HEART-HEALTHY FATS

Butter/Margarine
Whipped butter
Light butter
Butter blends (half butter, half oil)
Light, tub, and whipped margarines (avoid hydrogenation)

Oils

Olive oil
Canola oil
Peanut oil
Safflower oil
Sunflower oil
Corn oil
Vegetable oil

Salad Dressings: Most regular dressings and true vinaigrettes contain a very small amount of carbohydrate but vinaigrettes contain even less. Use regular salad dressing in a light amount, to keep your fat intake down without added carbohydrate. The age-old technique of taking salad on your fork and dipping it lightly into your salad dressing on the side really does help to cut down on your total fat consumption. Avoid fat-free salad dressings. The manufacturer generally replaces the flavor of the fat with sugar, making their carb count climb into the danger zone. If you are consuming a lower-fat dressing that contains carb, make sure that the portion you are using is less than 5 grams of carb.

Mayonnaise Light or low-fat preferred
Olives Green, black, stuffed
Nuts: Almonds, cashews, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts are all good choices. Also, peanuts, technically legumes, are acceptable. Avoid honey-roasted nuts, however, because honey is a natural sugar coating.
Sesame Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds Tahini paste (ground sesame seeds; use as a dip or a spread for vegetables)

Avocado
Sour Cream or Cream Cheese, Light or reduced fat is recommended.
Creamer or Half-and-Half Light or low-fat is recommended.

NEUTRAL VEGETABLES

Go to town eating the following vegetables. With the exception of tomatoes and tomato products that must be limited, you may eat these vegetables at any time and in any quantity even during Step One. They are filled with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for great health.
Artichoke
Artichoke hearts
Asparagus
Green beans, wax beans
Bean sprouts
Broccoli
Brussels sprouts
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Celery
Cucumber
Dill pickles
Eggplant
Onions and scallions
Greens such as collards, kale, mustard, and turnip greens
Kohlrabi
Leeks
Mushrooms
Okra
Peppers (all colors)
Radishes
Salad greens, including all lettuce, endive, escarole, romaine
Summer squash or zucchini
Spaghetti squash
Sauerkraut
Spinach
Tomato (maximum 1/meal)
Cherry tomatoes (maximum 10/meal)
*Tomato juice (4 ounces/meal) *Vegetable juice (4 ounces/meal) *Canned tomatoes (1/2 cup/meal)
Turnips
*Salsa (1/2 cup/meal)

FREEBIES DURING STEP ONE
During Step One, you can have these foods whenever you like, if their carb grams are zero:
Sweet Treats
Sugar-free gelatin
Sugar-free chewing gum
Sugar-free jelly
Sugar-free syrup
Sugar-Free ice pops

Basics

Bouillon

Consommé

Beverages
