Default Daily Food Journal--Help!!!

I have only just started to post my daily food jounal, but what I have down there is what I eat....and I have been struggling this morning I was UP a lb. What am I doing wrong?

In the Big Mac in a Bowl, I use extra lean ground beef, a green bell pepper, 1 cup of muchrooms, 1 cup of chopped celery, 8 baby dill pickles, 1/2 c. of raw onion, mustard, 1 pkg of WF thousand island dressing. and this was for 4 servings. Is there a culprit lurking in that?

I am getting frustrated

While I have been on the IP plan for 10 weeks, I just found this site. And I think it's exactly what I need to help me stay motivated! Another dieter in my community has written an IP cookbook that has also helped me, giving me more variety in my kitchen. So between these two things, plus the fact that my husband and I are doing this together, I have high hopes of reaching my goal by the new year.

Good for you! I agree that eating out is the hardest part of IP because it seems to take so much planning. But, like you, I'm not going to miss out on good times with friends and family just because of food issues. Glad you had a good time

I have 2 60 ft mango trees in my backyard and peeled, chopped and froze mango's in July till my freezers are full....waiting for the time when I can have fruit again.

I'm doing the same thing at my house! Only our fruit is peaches and pears. I really do miss fruit, but each week when I weigh, I realize that it's for a good cause.

Hey ladies - any suggestions for restaurants or can't miss tourist sites in D.C.? I've never been there and will be there for an afternoon. I'll be seeing the obvious places - White House, Capitol, Washington Monument, etc., but any other ideas for a short amount of time?

And hard on you, I suspect... I'm honored to offer up my prayers for your dad's comfort & excellent care while he's hospitalized... & for yours & your mom's comfort & hope during this uncertain time...

lots of hugs...

rox824!.. glad you found us... you're right, this place is the BEST for motivation... that IP cookbook sounds great, might it be available online???..

~~~~~~~~~

Something I was thinking about as I was drifting off to dreamland last night... the difference between IP & Atkins, at least in my experience... (I don't want anybody to think I'm bashing that way of eating, a lot of people have had great success with it).. anyway, with Atkins, I was still pigging out at meals & snacks, it just wasn't on crackers & bread & potato chips... it was on bacon & pork rinds & I don't remember what else... I never retrained my mind & my stomach to live on less food... so, even though I lost a lot of weight while I was doing the diet, when I went back to eating "normally," I continued to pig out & gained the weight back again pretty fast... (maybe there was a warning about this in the book, & I skipped over it).. but with IP, I'm not only retraining my pancreas & my stomach, but also my mind... knowing I can live through the day without eating so much I'm miserable when I go to bed is the greatest feeling... I still have days when my emotions say, "Where's the food?.. I want it NOW!!!".. but those days are becoming fewer & farther between, & I'm grateful for that, not only to IP, but also to all of you wonderful folks here...

hugs

Meat & Veggie Meatballs

1 lb ground turkey or beef
2 Egg Whites
1/4 c dried parsley
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
3/4 c grated zucchini
3/4 c grated cauliflower
1/2 c finely chopped mushrooms or spinach

Mix ingredients together, make into balls. Place on non stick baking sheet & bake at 425 for 20 mins.
I posted a new recipe in the recipe thread. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make these but still be able to calculate the 5 oz dinner protein and 2 cups veggies? Maybe by weighing out 5 oz of meat first? But then I'm not sure how the eggs fit in. I'd appreciate any advice!

Thanks, Elizabeth... good article... as the daughter of a wheat farmer (retired), I probably should be offended by this new info, but I'm not, just the opposite... in my own experience, eating wheat has been a major downfall in keeping my weight under control... I gave it up (mostly) several months before I started IP & the difference in how I felt was amazing, plus I had already started losing a little weight... I'm not planning to eat it ever again, although I'm sure there will be times I can't or choose not to avoid it...

I still have the greatest respect for farmers, wheat or otherwise... it just didn't work in a positive way (healthwise) for me...

hugs

Default Grains and Body weight; Recipe modification

While my personal experience validates the article, my not-so-inner-stats-geek looked at the scatter plot and said, "Whoa! There's a low R-squared value on that!" Translation: although there is a correlation, the fit of the "best fit line" is poor. Okay, another translation is probably needed : There appears to be a relationship between wheat intake and body, but there are other factors involved.

I read a member on another site comment that trying to get off sugar was very difficult until she stopped eating grains.That seems to fit with my experience and is something I'll be testing in my body lab once I'm on maintenance.

Up the meat to 1 lb 4 oz (20 oz) and you'd have exactly 4 servings of 5oz. meat protein + 1/2 cup veg per serving. I think the egg white impact would be negligible. However if you're super sensitive to protein or caloric intake, reduce the meat to 1 lb 3 oz.

I am so sorry! You are definitely in my prayers. I wish you and your mom as much peace as you can find at this time.

K,

I looked at this and saw 4 servings. To me this is just a smidge more than 3 servings of meat. Around a half serving of egg protein. (a meal replacement with eggs is 2 whites and 1 whole egg) The egg is all protein and to much else so, impact to you from this recipe should be minute.

If you were thinking of this as a 4 serving recipe, I think the veggies are a bit short as 2 cups total veggies is only 1/2 cup per person.

I would mix it up, weigh it, then cut it into 4 equal sized balls of meat. After which, I would make equal sized mini meatloafs or meatballs. I would serve it with another 1.5 cups veggies per person and a salad.

this sounds like a good stuffing for baked green peppers, cabbage, or mushroom too. If you finely grated some cauliflower, like rice texture, you could add that and get a more traditional texture as a filling for a "stuffed something".



Ok everyone! I am off to the local 49ers fan bar to watch the football game! Have a great Sunday afternoon! We have wi-fi service there so, I might take the computer and check in once in awhile but, if the game is good, probably not!

Welcome Rae, this is the end of my first full week, and my third post..woohoo. I have found tons of great information here, and a feeling of community. No one |I know has heard of ideal protein, and all are skeptical of the astronaut style food packages. After my frist weight in a 9 days into the plan and 12.2 pounds lost they are not skeptical any more.

Here are like minded people all going through the same thing, and at the end of the day a good read reminds you that this works!
Thanks everyone!

Carla:

I just had to thank you -- you bumped that Facebook page yesterday, which made me go look at the recipes and try the Tuna and the cole slaw recipe, both of which were amazing! I'm going to make the coleslaw all the time...I'll post them in the recipe page, with credit to the person -- just in case someone doesn't link through & that page gets buried again.

It made me realize that I was sorely lacking in food variety...I'm going back to the recipe threads to try and spice it up a bit more. I have been getting tired of chicken, but the week I did more beef I didn't do as well on the program. I can handle some types of white fish, but not all. Strange thing, I don't like preparing it (the fish smell gets to me) but I like eating it.

I hurt my lower back and have been moving very slowly today. I'm going to try and ice it and take some more ibuprophin. This means I'm absolutely checking luggage on Wednesday; there is no way I could lift a suitcase into the overhead bin. I may even have to be computer-free, I don't know that I'll be able to carry the laptop if it doesn't get better. Ugh.
