  1. Anyone up to sharing their mal plan ideas for Jan? I need to work on mine soon, I shop this Thursday.
  2. The scientific consensus on the "why" of America’s obesity problem has recently- since about 2002- undergone a profound paradigm shift. The old way of thinking illustrated by the food pyramid with grains and carbs as the base of the pyramid is and was wrong and damaging. We should be eating far fewer carbs/grains (whether whole grain or not) and more fat and protein. Respected physicians who head the nutrition science departments at Harvard and Duke have conducted clinical trials (not observational studies - for those who care about the distinction) which have shown: 1. Carbs cause insulin resistance which promotes obesity and weight gain. 2. Fat does not as previously thought cause heart disease. 3. Type 2 diabetes can be cured by practicing a LCHF (low carb/high fat) diet. If diet, health, and weight gain/loss is a concern for you, please look into LCHF diets and do some research. Here are some valuable links: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17684196?dopt=Abstract http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/07/magazine/what-if-it-s-all-been-a-big-fat-lie.html?scp=1&sq=what%20if%20its%20all%20been%20a%20big%20fat%20lie?&st=cse http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/what-should-you-eat/pyramid/ Stepping off my soap box now......
  3. My dear friend has been recently diagnosed with diabetes. It is hereditary, so she was expecting it. Anyway, she is having a bit of a time adjusting. She has done LC diets in the past, but "cheating" didn't have the consequences that it does with diabetes. Right now, she is having a horrible day. Her truck broke down at the bank, and she is having her period today. Her cycle is really rough on her, and she can't wait to go through menopause. Anyway, I am looking for your favorite LC or diabetes-friendly snacks, desserts, small meals, or anything such as that. I'd love to send her an email with ideas/recipes. Thanks so much.
  4. Sooooo, this isn't a debate thread. It's a place to share your lower carb recipes that you've tried/modified/liked. I use the term "lower" because I like (not a scientific term ;) ) the concept new Atkins has about a gram of fiber off-setting a gram of carbs. So, post your recipes that you've tried and liked. I'm getting there with my home made rolls. I should be able to post the recipe by next week. Post away. Don't worry if it's clean enough/whole enough/low enough. I ask that the Perfect Food Police be kind if visiting this thread. I know I have certain "no go" ingredients that I swear embody Satan himself, but really, do I need to impart that personal belief to someone kind enough to share something here? Probably not. Let's give this a try!
  5. no carb? I'm very cranky about this. Very. I've always eaten very clean, but lately, I've been feeling cruddy and losing control of my blood sugar crashes. NOT MUCH, but to me, it was more than usual. IT was a itty bitty sign that something wasn't right with me. Then, I started realizing that when I ate carbs I felt worse. So, a few days before kid went into the hospital I went no carb (such fun to do when stressed!). The sucky part is that without vitamin B I Have not crashed once, I'm not bloated (my weight is still the same but I don't feel like a balloon) and I've not had any bread ...except for tonight when I just HAD to try a half a piece of my awesome pineapple zucchini bread and....UGH, felt sick. So that kinda proved it. I don't mind eating like this most days, but I'm getting tired of eating the same thing all the time. Eggs, meat, veggies and salad. WHere do I go from here?
  6. After reading a thread about weight loss, this book was recommended; so I decided to check it from the library and read it. I get it, and it all makes since, but I don't know how I (or my family) eats the way he suggests. I'm not overweight and I workout regularly, but I do have a few pounds to lose. But that's not even the issue. The issue is: I have to get rid of sugars, carbs., and starches in our diet. IMPOSSIBLE! I didn't realize had bad it is, and it can not possibly change overnight. Here are some things that, according to the author, would have to eliminated from our diet: anything with refined flour (bread, pasta, pretzels, nachos, etc.), liquid carbohydrates (juice), white sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, milk, flavored yogurts, and fruit. As well as: grains (including whole grains), rice, cereal, flours, cornstarch, muffins, bagels, crackers, and starchy vegetables like beans (pinto, black beans, lima), carrots, corn, peas, potatoes, french fries and potato chips (which I actually don't eat). I'm not even sure where to start with cutting some of these out. :confused: I thought I ate pretty healthy, but apparently not.:glare: Now I need to kick it up a different level.:001_smile: So, I need healthy meals and snacks that don't include the above ingredients. I'm off to go workout; get rid of those crackers I just ate.;) Help, please.:bigear:
  7. I need specific choices of food items at drive-through fast food places for times when we're out running errands and need something quick and fairly inexpensive. I used to be able to find things in my old way of eating that were somewhat healthy. I very, very rarely eat beef and would mostly choose some form of chicken. I'm thinking that I may need to go back to eating beef, at least occasionally. I heard that at least one restaurant (I think it may be McDonalds) injects their chicken with HFCS which would mean I can't eat the chicken there. I'm not familiar with what's available at most fast food places. I'd like to know what specific things would be OK to eat (LCHF) at any of the following places. Anyone have suggestions? Wendy's (one just opened here last week) Jack-In-the-Box McDonalds Arbys Burger King Dairy Queen Taco Bell Taco...I can't think of the name of the other Taco place
  8. What are your staple foods? My daughter is trying this diet and I have no idea what to get her without doing a totally separate grocery shopping for her. I would like to get some ideas of snacks as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas. Just FYI, she is 15.
  9. After some help from the ladies here yesterday I am down to only having two concerns about my annual physical - I have high cholesterol and Triglycerides. Now the Triglycerides I believe can be dealt with by exercise, but the cholesterol has me a bit worried. Over the years I have read a lot of personal friends debate over the low fat diet VS everything else under the sun. Julia Child lived into her nineties! How is it that the natural fats from butter and milk are bad? Does anyone have links to articles on is a low fat diet is good, or why I should stick with my beloved salt free butter? Honestly, I am a bit scared at the changes I'll need to do and if I can afford them.
  10. Because of a health issue, I'm changing my diet to LC/HF. So far, I think I'm doing pretty well, but I can see that it would be really easy to fall back into the old way of eating. I'm hoping to find yummy, easy recipes that will become my go-to recipes so that I don't have any slip ups. Can you recommend any recipes that you really like or websites/forums for resources?
  11. I have had no wheat/grains for 6 days. That is all. :D
  12. Like many who responded in the other thread about feeding a family on $200/month we're in the same boat with regards to needing to avoid so many carbs. Dh and I are both at high risk of developing diabetes and we really need to be better about eliminating excess carbs while still eating on a budget. Typically that means we eat meat and a veggie for dinner. For instance, we might have grilled chicken and broccoli for dinner. Last night we ate a veggie stir-fry with some tofu and a tiny bit of rice. Earlier in the week we had chicken and a small baked sweet potato. Breakfasts are often some form of eggs. A soft cooked egg on top of one piece of whole-wheat toast is something that we have several mornings each week. Dh loves bagels with cream cheese and lox (a treat that we don't normally have because it's so expensive) so we just bought some everyseed bagels that are super thin, hopefully they're not too bad and close enough to the real thing. So, we're not going totally low-carb/grain-free, but still making a conscious effort to at least greatly reduce the amount of carbs we eat. If you have to eat similarly, what are some of your go-to meals? Things that are super simple? Ways to reduce your grocery costs? Maybe some meals that aren't so dependent on the usual meat + veggie formula?
  13. I have to eat low carb. I have PCOS and Type 2 Diabetes. I think this is the only way I will ever lose weight. I have a big family to feed. My goal is to cut out all grains and processed foods. I want to get our carbs from beans, veggies, and fruit. Why then do all of our meals include pasta and rice? It's driving me crazy. It's so much easier to add pasta or rice to bulk up the meal for 8 people. Is it really realistic to eat this way in a big family? Right now I have $900 a month for food. It's only for a little while and then I'll probably be back down to about $300 to $500 for food. I have read through the Low Carb posts and have some ideas. I really just need to know that I'm not dreaming here. Is this doable? By the way beans and fruit actually don't affect my blood sugar badly and I love to have something sweet (fruit) and cheap (beans)! :)
  14. I was wondering if anyone had experience with this diet. I've read the book and I am currently looking through NT. It seems so impossible that you can eat all of these fats and lose weight. Does it really work for anybody? I'm interested in the weight loss plan in the book and willing to take coconut oil as a supplement but do I HAVE to eat coconut on top of everything? Every recipe seems to be smear some on this, add it to this sauce, etc. I don't think I can handle it in everything.
  15. I want as long as it doesn't have carbs in it? Today is day one (again, UGH!) and I had 2 scrambled eggs cooked with butter, then I was still hungry, so I cooked about 4 oz fish in olive oil and butter. I drank a glass of green tea. I'm feeling better. :D My goal is to reduce my Fatty Liver Enzymes, lose weight, and become healthy. I can never get past the carb addiction though. After a few days (maybe up to 2 weeks) I do really well but ultimately, I eat something I shouldn't and it's ALL OVER. I am an all or nothing kind of gal. :sad:
  16. I'm going back to Atkins for a bit and I need some breakfast ideas. I cannot stand eggs all the time and I do not want heavily processed, nitrate and salt saturated meats. So, what can I have for breakfast???? I'm thinking about doing Atkins one day and "low carb" the next. In other words, more traditional Atkins on day 1. On day 2, raw veggies and meat (think salad and grilled chicken). Day 3 would go back to Atkins. Any thoughts on this?? I'm trying to compensate for fluid retention from starting hormone therapy. Also, I need to compensate for anemia (that is why I started the BCPs). So, my thinking is good quality meats and proteins and good quality fresh raw veggies. No lunch meats, processed foods, junk starches, etc. I've been pretty good about my diet, but pastas, potatoes, and ice cream have snuck into it a bit too often. Time to clean it up!!!
