  • I don't have a kindle (I have a nook) but it looks like I can download it to my PC when I get home, which would be more useful anyway.

    Hey if you can do cream cheese that dip I made (minus the nuts for you) would be easy and delicious. Make it even easier if you used store bought tampenade.

    My "Program": doing my version of a 4:3 - 3 day fast diet with real food every day, with a little twist of anti-inflammatory mixed in.

    • I can say this. My cravings for carbs and sweet things are pretty much nil. I'm still using a few drops of stevia in my tea, but plan to drop that after I get other stuff squared away. I haven't felt so satisfied eating in a very long time. For right now, this is WORKING.

      I think I have many improvements to make in my eating, but for what it's worth, here's my food log of the last several days (comments and suggestions [on my thread, of course] welcome!): Rms123's Food Diary | MyFitnessPal.com

      • Ok.. getting all the info I can before I officially start tomorrow..

        1. What is fat bread?
        2. Can I still have wine? Ok.. really enjoying a glass of wine in the evenings. Could it coincide with the fact I have an extremely ADHD/ODD/OCD child? well, maybe a little.
        3. So are ya'll counting calories or not? OR, you just looking at the macros?


        Ruth- Looking at your journal is giving me a great picture. I read this and am like, I CAN DO THIS!!! I need to increase my greens personally but other than that, this looks doable.

        Chris- Does the whey still fit? Also, I LOVE TAMPENADE!! OMG.. its addicting! I am making that cream cheese doo dah.. I have organic green olives and took out some kalamata olives too (I always have these on hand). I also have some sun dried tomatoes in olive oil I would love ideas for. We are talking HUGE ASS JAR (its from the middle east). I got it on sale like a while ago.. and I look at this jar and go.. hmmmmm

        OK.. update.. the cold has moved into the chest.. this is so not fun. As for the prozac, I go this month and am going to ask them to kick it up a notch or just give me something else. Its not a binge issue and I know part of it is lack of hormones but at times I think I am losing it. After dd therapy session (in which I was in for half an hour by myself), I think I need more of something. I dunno.. part of it is the holidays too.. the colder weather.. I dunno.

        No kids today at school. Today is a half a work day and the superintendent told us we can leave an hour early so I am here like 2.5 hours playing on the computer because my grades are done.

        • YES, you can do this. I've been traveling and working away from home and have managed to make this work.

          Fat bread, unfortunately, has nuts I posted the link in the LCHF recipe group.

          My guess is you'll have to see what wine does for you. I think it would throw me out of things, but others, maybe not.

          Tapenade = love!!!!!!!

          Sundried tomatoes - I combine them (and the oil) with meat (ground beef, chicken) and spinach. Makes a lovely meal!

          • OK.. here is some wine info in case you are interested:

            Here are some carb counts for popular types of wine (per five ounce glass):

            Reds
            Burgundy: 5.46
            Zinfandel: 4.20
            Petite Sirah: 3.94
            Sangiovese: 3.85
            Cabernet Sauvignon: 3.82
            Merlot: 3.69
            Pinot Noir: 3.4

            Whites
            Riesling: 5.54
            Chenin Blanc: 4.9
            Semillon: 4.59
            Pinot Grigio: 3.03
            Sauvignon Blanc: 3.01

            I normally drink merlot but I assume the drier white wines are less carbs..I am not a wine expert.

            • Well that seems totally doable, a glass of wine as a veggie replacement would keep you in your carb count!

              oh, forgot to answer about the whey. I had stopped using it. But my protein is a little low and fat a little high, so tomorrow I am thinking I will add 1/2 a scoop of the zNatural unflavored to my morning smoothie and take out probably the chia and flax and see what that does to the days macros as well as satiety through out the day. Because I am having zero issues with satiety I hesitate to mess too much with the macros.

              You could also chop up the tomatoes and add them to the cream cheese doo dah, and that would be yummy.

              also here is the link to my food tracking, although I have not been religious http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/dia...ate=2012-12-20about it, it might still give you some ideas.

                    • Calories Technically, if you are reaching your macros and not blowing past them, your calories should work out.

                      • ok, sorry, I looked at the macros, and so no, I won't add the whey. My protein was slightly high so I don't need it.

                        • That makes my protein range 65g to 79g
                          My carb upper end 36g
                          And my fat would be 144g at the low end and well no need to figure out the high end!

                          Looking at this, which is where I am going to start as well I am thinking the protein ought to be fine. I am comfortable eating about that much protein.. the 100+g of protein really threw me for a loop. That being said, if my fat is up its logical my carbs should be down and that should not be a big issue getting up to 36g carbs.

                          • I consider the carbs the high end of the range, as well as the protein and the fat the low end. In other words I am trying not to go over in carbs (well net carbs for now) and protien, and not worry as much about if the fat goes over a little. I was a bit high in everything yesterday, but not horribly. And my percentages, which get figured out as straight carb not net, worked out fine, so I am really close.

                            • My carbs usually end up at 10-15 total, but I am eating only a few veggies.

                              • I get carbs from flax, chia, and avocado, but they all have as much fiber as carb, and that gets me 16g of carb right there. I like doing a large salad for dinner and that gives me another 15g of carb or so. Of those 31g, 21g would be from fiber though. Just not sure how using NET vs. straight carbs will affect NK. I do know I do well with having the fiber though, so I am going to try it net carbs first, and if there is no slimming going on, I will slowly drop the carbs to get my straight carbs under 36g.
