Default Day 5 - a little difficult

Good Morning!

Well, day 5 was a small challenge. I had an event at 5pm - that went to 7pm. So, I went hungry. I also had a piece of gum (that's a no-no) because I didn't want to offend anyone with my breath seriously though -- and it tasted SOOOOO GOOOD! I chew gum often!

So, by the time we got our food last night it was 8pm. AND, where we ate out didn't have many options for me (Famous Dave's). So, I ordered the brisket sandwich, no bun, and naked. I gave my side to my friend. I had about 4 oz of meat in front of me. That was it... $14 after tip Not gonna do that again! Actually I tipped too much, but I'd already signed the credit card slip so... oh well; I was able to bless someone

When I got home I was very very hungry. I'm sure zero-carb gurus would frown on this - I had a quest zero-carb protein shake. My carbs for the day were 11.7g - hence... no weight change. I'm okay with that, as today is another day (Thank God!)

For breakfast I had 2 egg and shredded lamb (not so great - too much lamb), coffee and dry creamer

Lunch was Trader Joe's (TJ) roasted chicken patty, 6 small olives, mayo... (again not too great, but I wasn't hungry after I ate it so I guess it accomplished it's purpose)

Supper was mentioned above.

And, then I had the shake as my snack. I also had a low-fat string cheese.

I drank only water and coffee as mentioned above.

I need to go to the meat market so to have more options in the house. I did just go through the freezer and pulled out some beef roast, steak, and elk. Everything looks a little freezer burned -- so, we'll see. May be a few more "eck" meals... but, this too will pass.

TODAY - I WAS hungry.

Still on the move, getting things done around my home to prep to sell it ... hopefully I'll be home ALL day today and tomorrow

Here are the stats so far -

7/23 WI 258.8 start date
7/24 WI 256.6 -2.2
7/25 WI 255.8 -0.8
7/26 WI 254.8 -1.0
7/27 WI 252.8 -2.0 (-6.0 total)
7/28 WI 252.8 no change

Calories: 1253
Fat: 69.8g 52.7%
Protein: 129.5g 43.4%
Carb: 11.7g 3.9%


That's good as my plan is to stay in the range of 60% Fat / 40% Protein

On to DAY 6

I keep my carbs low, less than 25G, but I'm not sure I could handle no carb. How are you feeling on it?


Eating out is the worst when low carbing. You feel like you're paying for a whole bunch of food to be left off your plate.

Hi Neko - I'm actually doing quite well. Rarely hungry. And loving the food. Oh, don't get me wrong I miss my veggies and fruit... but for now, it's working. It's already 6:30 and I'm going to be eating in a bit (typically I eat around 4 - 4:30). I'm planning to have bacon and crab sticks with butter. I did a bit of research before I started and when I read a lady's feet didn't hurt when she got out of bed in the morning - I thought ... OK! I'm trying this.

How is the low carb going for you? I did South Beach from Feb 2016 - Oct 2016 and lost 60 pounds. I intended to stay doing that as a life style but jumped in the deep end of the pool and played with bad choices. It is my goal to do SB as a way of life. It is doable

ENJOY your weekend.

My feet only hurt after chasing my 6 year old around an amusement park all day.

I'm doing Atkins for low carb. It's been going fairly well, although my loss has drastically slowed the last few months. My carbs are mainly from vegetables, no fruit. I just can't seem to bring myself to have an extra 5-10 carbs from berries. Although I do occasionally indulge in yogurt for a few extra carbs.

South Beach can be a great diet. But I found that I stopped losing weight when I added back in any type of carb that wasn't a fruit. It's a great idea for maintenance.

Default Day 6 - completed

Good Morning!

Well, day 6 - odd... and I did an oops without realizing it -- so losing it says I had only 820 but I think I figured something incorrectly...

Also one of the things I planned for supper tended to be high in carbs, unknown to me -- hence, no change in weight -- but NO GAIN either.

For breakfast I had 2 eggs and ham with coffee and dry creamer. The ham was from the freezer and it had freezer burn and it was kinda icky... so, I ate only about 2/3 of it -- and I threw away the meat. I don't like wasting food, but I don't want to eat ucky stuff either.

Lunch was again a bit of a rush, and I got hungry and needed to find something quickly - so, I thought gyros meat. So, I got it - but I think that it's much higher in calories and carbs than I recorded.

Supper was 3 pieces of bacon - from the butcher shop (lip smacking) and 3 imitation crab sticks - which was high carbs than I thought.

I didn't have any snack.

I drank only water and coffee as mentioned above.

TODAY - I was NOT hungry.

Still on the move, getting things done around my home to prep to sell it ... I will be home ALL day today

Here are the stats so far -

7/23 WI 258.8 start date
7/24 WI 256.6 -2.2

That imitation krab is a killer with carbs. You think it's meat, but I think it's mostly filler. That's probably why it's so cheap. Don't feel bad, I probably just ate too many carbs because lunch was cottage cheese. I went out to run errands and didn't feel like cooking something for lunch at 4 pm.

I wish I had recipes to share, but they never work out for me. I either hate it and throw away the whole batch or I love it and eat way too much. Most meals for me are plain. Grilled/Roasted meat and vegetables for dinner. Lunch is usually tuna & salad or eggs. Breakfast is coffee, the best breakfast there is.

Lightbulb Completed day 7 - and stopping ZERO CARB today (day 8)

Neko - I'm heading back to the Beach - South Beach that is!

I'm done with zero-carb. If you want a place that is very proactive and connected, jump over to http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/weig...e-welcome.html

I have stopped zero-carb after one week.
Yes, I lost weight
Not sure about inches ... I would only assume so.
Had a few complications today -- so, I need to go back on a low-carb way of life.

GOOD LUCK to anyone who tries zero-carb.

South Beach is a great diet; very sustainable in the long term.

Zero carb is just too much for most people. It excludes so many foods that a daily menu is hard to stick to. I find that too much meat and fat gives me stomach issues. I even have to watch that on Atkins or I spend the whole evening in the bathroom.

Thumbs up Meat, om nom nom!

Hi FinallyFree!

I just started this Monday a very, very low-carb diet after mostly following a low-cal low-carb plan after my November 2017 WLS. I found that I was straying into too many bad carbs territory too often these days, and I needed to get that *beep* under control! I read with interest the all-meat "carnivore" diet claims around the 'net, at MeatHeals.com and I watched the excellent videos by Dr. Anthony Gustin, DC (Chiropractor & functional medicine specialist):The Real Reasons Why The Carnivore Diet Works (12 minutes) and the longer video,

My Carnivore Diet Results and Q&A (5.5 Weeks Eating ONLY MEAT) (52 minutes).

Amber O'Hearn is great too: She has a couple websites:
Amber's keto website: The Ketogenic Diet for Health
Amber's personal/carnivore website: Empirica -- One stand-out post is My Carnivorous Diet.

I used to be a vegetarian in the late 1990s/early 2000s so meat has a bit of a gross-out factor to me, but I am getting over that and even grilled some ribeye steaks this Monday as a way to start off this WOE with a bang, ha!

So far, I have lost 5.8 pounds in just 4 days and I feel GREAT. I have high energy, no hunger, no more stuffed-up nose, skin breakouts are healing, less joint pain in knees and hands, and this part surprised me the most, no problems going to the bathroom, haha! I thought getting zero fiber would turn me into cement, but apparently not, everything is normal. Huh! I am really digging this so far. Cooking is super easy: grilled steak, pan-fried ham, roasted chicken breast, steamed fish, sometimes with ghee, mustard or hot sauce. I'm drinking lots of water, some coffee (sometimes with heavy cream) and tea. I thought it would be really expensive but it's not because I don't eat much and I am not buying any "extras" like veggies, fruits or cheese (or *cough* croissants at the coffee shop!). Ok, the ribeye steaks were $$$ but that was a rare splurge!
