Now I'm scared to do the same thing this weekend b/c I have a girls weekend with all my girlfriends which is an annual trek to let our hair down, eat and drink until we get really silly. I've just packed a huge amount of veggies for the weekend, but I know that once I see all the wine, beer and nachos, i'M thinking...darn, here goes another 3 pounds.

Thanks a bunch Kramer! at least you were having fun while doing it. ME? I was upset that I haven't lost much this week and wouldn't you know it, dinner guest is coming tonight so I was cutting cheese etc and feeling sorry for myself and it seemed that food devil took over...I stuffed myself over the sink and then sat on the kitchen floor. So what did I do after??? I lit up a smoke and currently thinking about cracking a bottle of red open. Good thing as BF and guest are coming soon so I know I wont do that part. So I went from feeling bad over not loosing weight to sabotaging what I have lost; can't help but laugh at this point. How smart is that?

Hi, I can't believe there are 16 pages of comments and I haven't had a chance all week to read any of them. It's been a whirlwind week - we bought a new house and have to get our current house together to sell it... stress, stress, stress.
I've been eating pretty well, but I don't have enough time to eat a salad 2 times a day (sounds stupid, I know) - are there serious consequences of missing a salad every day?

i bet you still have a great loss! it may just take a day or so to get your body back in ketosis, thus next week's may be 4.3 lbs lost instead of 4.5, don't beat yourself up. you're doing great

Also, we are clearly referring to 2 very different products in the Muscle Milk line. The powdered protein I got at Costco is called Muscle Milk PROTEIN + and it's available in chocolate or vanilla. The nutritional analysis on the PROTEIN PLUS looks completely different than the Muscle Milk label you posted. Here is the info for the product I bought which is MM's PROTEIN PLUS
Nutrition Facts
Serving Size: 1 Level Scoop (34 g)
Amount per Serving
Calories 130 Calories from Fat 20
% Daily Value *
Total Fat 2g 3%
Saturated Fat 0.5g 2%
Cholesterol 20mg 7%
Sodium 135mg 6%
Potassium 100mg 3%
Total Carbohydrate 3g 1%
Dietary Fiber 0g 0%
Sugars 1g
Protein 26g 52%
Est. Percent of Calories from:
Fat 13.8% Carbs 9.2%
Protein 80.0%
He meant nutritionally

I was comparing both powder products to be fair... Zero Carb also has bars, but my assessment was in regards to the shakes themselves

When you've got an abundance of zucchini in your garden and you're looking for new zucchini recipes to try, pull this one out. It's a nice complement to chicken parmesan and Italian bread.
Baked Zucchini Chips

* 3 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch chips
* 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
* 2 Tbsp. olive oil
* Maldon sea salt or kosher salt and pepper to taste
OPTIONAL FOR PHASE 3 or 4 add * 2 oz. crumbled goat cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss zucchini slices with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread out on in a single layer on a jelly roll pan. Roast 7 minutes. Turn zucchini over. Roast another 7-8 minutes.

FOR PHASE 3 or 4 toss with goat cheese and serve immediately.

Serves 6.

Read more at Suite101: Baked Zucchini Chips: A great alternative to fried zucchini. http://low-carb-cooking.suite101.com...#ixzz0nEfQSfkW

Crispy Turnip Fries
8 med. turnips
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. ground paprika

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Pare and cut turnips into 2 1/2 x 1/2 inch sticks.
In gallon-size sealable plastic bag, combine garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Add turnips; seal bag, squeezing out air; toss to coat turnips. Place turnips on baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes or until turnips are tender and golden. Makes 8 servings.

We aren't supposed to in phase 1 or 2 unless your coach has offered you the restricted foods like the IP bars, pancakes/crepes, cereal, etc. These do use real sugars, mostly from agave and brown rice syrup.

Congrats on the new house! I can understand being so busy with that going on!

Has anyone had a problem with extreme abdominal pains and bloating? Feels like someone is pumping my abdoman up with air and it has no where to go.
I was in the ER it was so bad but after sitting there for almost 3 hours and having pain for 8 hours I had to leave. I think maybe it was something I ate... the last thing I had was the chocolate banana bar. Although I have eaten that in the past. Just wondering!
