    Moving - even if looked forward to or as an adventure is still no fun! We swear "never again" each time. Try to come up with a new special time for you and Lily to reconnect with a meal, walk or tea time. Even just 15min/day can make such a difference during this stressful time. A silly game, joke or other ritual shared can bring something new that only the two of you share.

    I have read kruse's blog directly. He doesn't seem as crazy there. I hate the monster Leptin thread.

    oh man, so sorry, what a pain! They delivered DH's kegerator yesterday and put an 8" serious scratch in the wood floor right inside of our front door!

    When I did my LR, I admit I did not have big issues but, I read Dr. K's blog as well as several others who had protocols of their own (since there is obviously no research to back any of this up). And I took the 5 most common rules across the protocols, they were...

    RULE 1: Keep 3 hours before bedtime food free
    RULE 2: Eat 3 meals a day, no snacks
    RULE 3 : Eat to satisfaction, not stuffed
    RULE 4: Eat a high protein breakfast soon after arising-trying to get 50g protein within the 30 mins. after waking up
    RULE 5: Carbs between 25 and 50

    I actually am still pretty close to this, I actually get 70g of protein for breakfast, and now that I do 9 veggies I am closer to the 50g of carb but I also get 25g of fiber. For me it may have been as much about establishing good habits as any thing else. Good luck.

    How much of your breakfast is not whey? I have a hard time eating more than 25g of real food.

    I also read on Kruse's site about how its ok to do 2 meals/day?? I only mention this because I seldom have a problem IFing a meal (such as today when I spaced bringing a lunch). Good thing the reset starts tomorrow for me.. isn't today fat tuesday?? LOL

    1. 3 hours before bed no food- not a problem.. got it
    2. 3 meals a day (?), no snacks- not a problem
    3. eat to satisfaction.. going to have to listen to the body
    4. high protein breakfast.. the following is posted from sugar babies thread here about breakfast ideas:
    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread33278.html
    50+g Protein Breakfasts

    (Season as you like, add low sugar fruits and vegetables.)

    4oz sirloin steak 35g
    2 eggs 12g
    2 oz cottage cheese 6g

    8oz ground beef 46g
    2oz cheddar cheese 14g

    4oz pork chop 23g
    4oz Cottage cheese 12g
    3 Eggs hard boiled 18g

    4oz Ham slice/cubes 16g
    4 eggs scrambled 36g
    1 oz cheddar cheese 7g

    8oz cottage cheese 24g
    8oz greek yogurt 20g
    Blend together add 1 scoop flavored protein powder

    1/4 quiche 34g
    8 slices Canadian bacon 20g

    4 pieces regular-sliced bacon 12g
    3 eggs 18g
    Protein shake 1 scoop 24g

    2 hard boiled eggs 12
    1cup kefir 8-14g (depends on brand & fat content)
    5 oz ground beef patty 29g

    6oz chicken breast 42g
    1/2 c greek yogurt 10g
    (pour yogurt over chicken, add some salsa, heat through)


    Protein Shakes

    2 scoops of most varieties = 48-50g
    Mix egg white protein with flavored
    Add coconut milk and/or ice to blender to make a frozen shake


    1 scoop 24g
    8oz yogurt 20g or 8oz cottage cheese
    Add enough water or coconut milk to thin if desired

    2 scoops protein 48g
    1 raw farm-raised egg 6g (I wouldn’t use regular store eggs raw.)

    Fruit adds flavor but little or no protein.


    Quiche:

    Basic recipe can be divided into muffin tins or a pie plate/quiche dish for wedges= 132g protein:
    10 eggs beaten well
    8oz cheese, gruyere, swiss, or you choice or mixed
    cup diced onion (or scallions, shallots)
    2T water (or cream or sour cream or yogurt)
    4 oz diced ham (bacon/minced beef /pork/chicken/shrimp-adjust protein count)
    Salt and pepper and season to taste
    Mix ingredients, pour into greased dish, bake at 375F for 35-45 minutes or until knife comes out of center clean.


    Cook for a few days:

    Lightly cook several ground beef patties, steak pieces, pork chops or other meats in portions you prefer. I do 4 or 8oz portions, which will keep in refrigerator, and can be quickly heated in pan or microwave.

    Boil a dozen eggs Sunday night, bring to boil, turn off heat and let sit for 20 min; to ease peeling: after cooking, put into a bowl of ice water for 2-3 minutes, return to hot water for 1-2 minutes, then back in cold water. Store in container with a folded paper towel to collect water the eggs give off.

    Make a quiche, cook a roast, roast a chicken, etc, for several easy meals.
    5. Carbs between 30-50 should not be a problem if I watch the HWC

    Oh.. ordering a fitbit for me and one for my mom today. I will let you all know more when it arrives. More later.. the bell rang.. work just interferes with everything!!! LOL

    Great list of breakfasts! I usually do an egg/meat combo or egg/soup combo for breakfast. Planning is the key to success as I don't do shakes for breakfast.

    I cannot do 'real' food in the morning. I do a shake after I get off the treadmill. 50g of whey (Jay Robb) and 12g (or so) of Great lakes gelatin. The last 8g comes from the veggies I add.

    also, I would go easy on the ham and bacon (salt issues ya know), but that looks like a nice list-planning is definitely key. Also, fruits tend to increase carbs faster than most veggies.

    Can't wait to hear about the fitbit.

    I feel that the whey shake is a problem for me. In fact, I have not been able to string more than 3 non binge days together since I restarted it. I don't want to add cheese for the same reason.

    I can't seem to make myself eat more than two eggs.

    This is so frustrating. I think real food is very important on LR because of the vagus nerve thing. The literal physical satisfaction of eating such a large meal. BUT,I am not following the main rule of LR until I can get my morning protein up to 50. Mamagrok says her binge issue did not totally resolve until she hit 65g real food protein. UGH!
