    Am I the only one who hates tracking? I don't have much experience doing it and I find it really annoying to stop and try and figure out how much of one ingredient I've added to a pot of whatever I'm making for the family and then divide how many servings I've made. Feeling a little grumpy because I've just tracked my breakfast + 1 Tb. of oil and I'm already up to 718 calories and have had 24g of carbs and it wasn't even that satisfying. Oh and I've gained 3 lbs since starting. I don't have much to loose in fact my weight might even be okay if it would just spread itself out a little and not sit right at my belly. Is this what they mean by menopausal weight? I haven't had a period since September.

    Please excuse my crankiness.

    So if you hate tracking, I used to so I get it-but it does tend to get easier because of remembered foods, all you really need to do is to limit carbs and to a lesser extent protein.

    What did you get your carbs from?

    I am finding that I don't really need much "meat" of any kind to get to my protein goal. I try to space it out too, so I shoot for no more than 25g per meal of protein and no more than 10g of carb per meal (give or take) I also tend to eat pretty much the same breakfast and lunch every day, so all I have to worry about is dinner.

    I can't speak to the menopausal part. Every time I think, ooo I am going into it, I start TOM. There have been reports from others here though that there is an initial gain before the losses start.

    I hope you are right about menopausal gain before menopausal loss. I've got the gain part down pat!

    Sorry, I meant to say that there have been reports that some have gained initially then lost, regardless of their stage of menopause. On a side note, my BFF lost weight when she went into menopause, of course she started out thin.

    I'm new to tracking too and it's half interesting - half a pain to remember to do...

    I am definitely finding I don't need much meat to meet the protein goal. Today I had leftover chicken and ate more than I should've and now for dinner I'm alotted 3 grams of protein to stay at my goal of 80g! Obviously it will be a higher than usual protein day

    I am struggling to find what to eat other than full-fat dairy products to meet my fat goals without going over on protein...

    Look on the LCHF recipes group page. Demuralist just posted a great article about just that.

    Sorry, I don't know how to link to it.
