Tomi- I am definitely sticking to low-carb during my JUDDD trial. I have tended toward a little more HighFat as well, but I was never doing that strictly. But I don't see why not.
I have been doing it since March 5th. My numbers (I've been weighing every day) are encouraging, but I don't want to really analyze them until I have a full month under my belt. I think that will be especially important since part of this diet is an ingrained up-and-down. However, my jeans are definitely looser, and I THINK my stomach looks smaller. That may be due to FODMAP experimentation(which is a royal pain in the butt!). Or maybe just my imagination!
Woke up ravenous this morning, so had breakfast earlier than usual, and it was fantastic. Ham, egg, cheese, and two enormous strawberries(likely mutants!).
Here's how yesterday went:
Up at 5:30
11:30 small spinach salad- spinach, 1 strip bacon, 1/2 hard egg, vinegar
4:45 strawberry-rhubarb yogurt
8:00 1/2C vegetable slurry with poached egg
Water: 9 glasses
Bed at 9:30
I like to pick up old magazines at our library once in a while- 10 cents a piece. Last time I grabbed two issues of Diabetes Forecast, just to see. They had a Holiday Menus section that was really pretty good. Listen to this:
Garlic and Sage Roast Pork
Roasted Winter Vegetables
Spinach, Fennel, and Pear Salad
Spiced Roasted Salmon
Holiday Carrot Soup
Sauteed Grape Tomatoes
Party Shrimp with Cilantro Dip
Thai Chicken Salad in Cucumber Cups
Crustless Spinach Quiche
I left out the Biscotti and Bruschetta! And think I would be perfectly happy without them, too. their official line may be whole grains, but there was a marked absence of them in the recipes. Of course, I would substitute the real thing for their fat-free (blech!) cheeses in the quiche.
Making some more mayonaise today. I found a jar that will hold my immersion blender, and am going to try it, Pebbles-style.
