    Hi Sharon, I do recommend the VAP. It put my mind a ease. I can only speak for myself, but dairy slows me down to a halt. Cut out all your dairy for a couple of weeks to a month and see where that takes you. The longer I did without dairy the less I craved it. Good luck with your experiments. I know I experimented a lot at the start and I found out that Fatty Beef and H20 works the best for me to lose weight. I can only speak for myself. Keep the Faith Sharon!!!

    Cheers,

    Dave

      All's Well that Ends Well

      I thought I would share some good times I spent with some buddies yesterday. This is a post from my Zero Carb Blog:

      Wow, what a Great reunion I had yesterday with my buddies. We ate and talked and talked and did I mentioned that we talked a little lol! They were amazed at my Zero Carb weight loss and made some nice comments to me.

      We re-hatched a ton of old war stories. It brought back a lot of memories. We basically stuck with the good times and let the bad ones stay in the past where they belong. My oldest friend who was in attendance, but not part of that past told them all that he felt like he knew them all because of all the old war stories I would tell him.

      At the end of the night I made everyone promise that it would not take this long to get together again. Too much time has gone by, so much lost time. We have so little ahead of us. I am the baby of the bunch. The others range from three to ten years older than me more or less. Man did I miss those guys. It felt Great and Weird being all together again. Two of them actually live relatively close to me. The other is on the other side of town, but not too far.

      We took a few pictures during and towards the end of gathering. I almost did not want it to end. These were the people that kept me safe during times and that I kept safe during times. We watched each others SIX and we never let anyone out flank us.

      The weather was Great. We ended up spending 90% of the time on my back patio with the tiki torches going and my water features on. they were impressed with the place and made a lot of gracious comments. They loved the food. I'm telling you these guys are the BEST. There is nothing like talking about old times with those who lived them with you. My friend that I have known the longest spent the night. He had some business in the area today. We chatted quite a bit this morning until he left around 10:30 am. He will try to make it back next weekend and may spend the night. These are my brothers now and forever.

      Well, I did not weigh myself this morning because I forgot. I must have been preoccupied with my friend being over. I ate a steak and some snow crab. The only thing really out of place is that I ate around 7:30 pm which is really out of place for me.

      I have decided to give the Fatty Beef Brisket a break. I crumbled around six pounds of Ground Beef and Ground Chuck about 50/50. I seasoned it up a little. I will be eating that for a while and see where it takes me. I have had success with it in the past. I just wanted a change. I don't know how long I will be eating it.

      I hope everyone had a Great Weekend. Draw the Line, Face your Enemies, and Battle On!!!

      (ZC)ers Together Forever



      Cheers,

        It sounds like you had a wonderful, memorable time with your friends, Dave. I hope you all manage not to let so much time go between you in the future.

        I'm taking your advice on the dairy. We'll see how it goes, or to use your words, "see where it takes me."
        Thanks,
        Sharon
        P.S. (Just wanted to add, thanks for your friendliness even though I hijacked your thread. And, FYI, I just blogged about you this morning: http://blog.middlinplus.com/2011/02/...-of-david.aspx. Thanks for your inspiration.)

              I've been very low, and water fasted, but never ate zero carb. That is quite an accomplishment. Do you get any lower GI problems like some say they do on low, low carb?

                  Hi Digby, Thank you. GI problems as far as ? Well the only problems I had was in the first six weeks or so. I had what I call "tummy troubles" ...........uumm you know uh the big "D" lol. I was told this happens to those who have had their GB removed. I think it was because of the amount of fat I was eating. I also had a pain on my side where the GB was. It went away and I only occasionally get "tummy troubles" once in a blue moon. I don't think it is any more or less then when I was LC, VLC or SAD.

                  I hope I answered your question. Fight the Good Fight and Battle On Digby!!!

                    Okay, I did have to smile a little bit about this, as I was wondering the same thing this morning after one day on zero carb. I dropped a pound overnight, and I feel fabulous this morning, but the "big D" has struck. But, I also have no gall bladder, and I'm accustomed to having bouts of this regardless of how I eat, so Immodium is my friend.

                      Hi Sharon, I think we are both smiling at that one lol! I found that I dropped 2 to 3 pounds of water weight when I started (ZC). I would, if you haven't already, reduce or eliminate salt. It seems to make me retain water. I Tell You What the "tummy troubles' were not fun. I cut back on the fat and it helped.

                      Today I had an all time low. Wow, the wonders of Zero Carb never cease to amaze me. For me, it has been an experience of a Lifetime. I love it. I wake up fresh and excited to start a new day free. My body, mind and soul has been given a second chance. Eight months ago I was out of control in the weight department. Drowning in my own Blubber. I would lose, then gain, then lose just to gain again. I felt as if an alligator had me in a "Death Roll". Now I am free and loving LIFE more and more each day. Yes my friend, their is certainly light at the end of the tunnel. We just have to find our WAY. Fight the Good Fight and Battle On Sharon!!!

                        Greetings Friends, I have been having a great time reading. I really enjoy the section on cholesterol and the" Protein" question on the HOME page. Great reads. I might be a Zero Carber, but this place is a wealth of knowledge. Keep the Faith and Battle On!!!

                          Good Tidings. Today I hit an all time low on Zero Carb. I am real close to my next Mini Goal of 189 lbs. It's weird but today I have been talking about the point of time that I came to realize that I did not give SAD a second thought and that Zero Carb has become a natural way of eating (WOE) for me. It just seems one day out of no where that carbs were no more attractive to me to eat than a piece a paper or a lump of coal. I just don't look at carbs like I used to. I think it was when I reached my last Mini Goal of 199 lbs. Remember I started this Journey through Zero Carb at 260 lbs just around 8 months ago. I thought it was interesting. I can't fathom ever eating SAD again. NEVER! Have a Great Day and Keep On Keeping On!!!

                                Greetings fellow Non-SADers, today I had an all time low on Zero Carb. I am 47 yrs old and I have not weight this much (or little) since the 1980s. I tried LC and VLC for years and the lowest I got was in the 220s with no cheats. I was a good little solider. I Loved VLC but at the end of the day it took only a moment of weakness and I caved into the cravings. That is the key for me and I can only speak for myself. On Zero Carb I have had Zero Cravings. I can't believe it. I just don't.

                                I'm the main cook in the house, BTW we are all adults at my home no little ones, anyway they all think I am crazy eating this way, so I cook the regular montage of food for them. It does not bother me or tempt me to taste or cave in to carbs what so ever. I found that really strange. I have a strong will, yet I really don't need to tap into it.

                                I did not know what exactly to expect when I started Zero Carb. I did not know if I could last long on it. I did not know crap. I did know that my weight was out of control and I needed to do something before I went past 300 lbs. Yes my friends I was on that road with no stopping. Last year I reached 280 lbs. So I buckled down and went VLC and brought my weight down to around 235 lbs and then I caved into cabs yet again OMG!!! What was I to do? I ballooned up to 260 lbs and there was no stopping. In desperation I planned to try VLC yet again before I went all the way back to 280 lbs and beyond. I started to look for VLC recipes on the net and came across a link to a Zero Carb forum. I read for a month and a half all the material and different journals on the forum. I tried it out on my own for a week and then applied for membership. Over there you have to fill out a questionnaire and be accepted or denied membership. I was accepted. Now it has been 81/2 months later and I am down 69.8 lbs as of today which is an all time low for me on Zero Carb.

                                Did I ramble? Sorry. I do love this forum and all its knowledge. It seems like a real easy going place to explore. Mark seems to be an awesome dude. In his pictures he seems to be loving life. Right now I can tell you this my Friends. I am loving Life More than ever. Stay Strong!! Live Long!! Battle On!!!



                                Cheers,
