Hi! Happy New Year!

I am back on Ideal Protein. It did the trick for the last 15 pounds so I'm hoping for the next 15 to go that way as well. I started up before the holidays, but got a little loose around the holidays. I didnt' gain over the holiday time though, so that's a plus! I'm back down to my magic low of 152. I will do cartwheels once I get below 150 for sure! Just wanted to check in and say HI!!!

HI ALL, new to the forum and would love to chat ZC with everyone!

Zero Carb eater here!! nice to see a thread where people don't need or want carbs.

I do however reserve the right to go up to 5-6 total carbs per day....only if desperate in a situation where I have to eat a small salad my 5-6 total carb option is very rare if I ever use them. I am 0 carb and stick to 0 carb.

other than that event, I am 100% ZC eater at this point. have been for over 300 days. LOVE it so much and I feel SO good it is scary. being super carb sensitive 0 is where I do best.

Just posting my day:

55 minute hardcore calorie burn exercise tape (oh yes I feel this one!)

1/2 hr. with high incline and fast pace on my treadmill

1/2 hr. with high resistance trainer program on my recumbent bike

food today is ribeye with little garlic butter
plain country style pork spare ribs

A ton of rain outside and pouring buckets. No outside fun today. inside exercise and 100% on plan eating zero carb is what works for this old girl

I hope everyone has a great day on plan and is feeling strong in their LC ways!!

I'm not a zero carber but I am a very low carber. Usually around 10-15 carbs a day. All from lettuce or green beans or coffee

B:Coffee/HWC/Splenda
L: Grilled chicken strips with a little cajun seasoning.
D: Not sure yet, but probably grilled NY Strip with butter and green salad or roasted green beans.

you are a VLC which is kinda close. truly to me anything under the 10 total carb range for the day is sure super duper LC.

rare on some days I do hit the 5-6 total carb range if I do a salad. but that is not the norm.

if you are limiting to a small LC veggie group with all your protein I think you are right in that ballpark with me.

I see you do the chicken in cajun seasoning. I also do my chicken thighs in cajun seasoning...YUM. one thing on chicken, I must add some spices cause regular old chicken is super unsatisfying to me.

you basically are following an Atkins induction menu....cool!

Yes, I'm going to stay close to the Atkins induction until I get 50 lbs off. Then I will try to add some nuts and maybe berries and see how I do.

I agree on the chicken. And, I like things a little spicy anyway.

I've changed up my dinner plans. I'm going to mix some shaved sirloin with a touch of onion and green pepper, with garlic powder and S&P and then melt provolone over it. Philly in a bowl.

Our stats look similar and you have done a fantastic job! I can't wait until I can get into the 1'somethings!

yes I need spicy to replace all the sweet I left behind

I love minced fresh garlic on my ribeye. just a smidge of it for taste. yum

That is exactly what I did. I floundered on Atkins Net 20 plan. I would try to climb the carb ladder a little and never worked. I would YO YO the lbs. & it drove me nuts

Then I stayed in original Atkins 1972 Induction. I lost so well on it. Just drop after drop, so fast the lbs came off and now I finally see the light of my goal area. that is how I walked into my zero carb plan. I would eat the limited salad and veg on the A72 Induction food list---then I noticed as days went by I dropped the salad and veggie and just ate protein. I am a meat hound to the ultimate max so this fit me so well.

Onederland is coming your way. When we eliminate the sugar from our systems, the body takes on its own new healthy process and great benefits come your way.

I love that even if the scale does not move, I lose inches. LC transforms a body into a leaner/meaner machine I finally have the collarbones coming out and I love seeing that LOL

exercise tape with hand weights this morning

treadmill later some time in the day when I can fit it in

simple food. ribeye steak for lunch
dinner, hmm, maybe a bunch of crab legs and butter for dip
if not crab then probably couple of pork chops with cajun seasoning
can of sardines and chunk cheddar if wanted
not sure what I want...just not hungry at all so will decide later.

nothing like extreme keto to keep the hunger at bay. alot of protein helps!

Hi ZCA72 Still on plan over here today. Been eating a lot of steak so trying to get in more fish and chicken. I ended up being out at the river longer than I intended on Saturday and ended up eating a handful of cashews since that is what was available. So I'm not going to weight until wednesday~!

Today will be the usual
B: Coffee/HWC/Spelnda
L: Leftover baked pork chop
D: Probably bake flounder with green beans or a lettuce salad.
