The galettes are great. Use some sugar-free syrup or jelly for a nice treat, make yourself a countdown calendar toward your projected date of reaching your goal (or for me, it's a cruise we've planned), and DIG IN for the long haul. Don't cheat or you'll get out of ketosis and defeat the point of low carb. Any birthday or other holiday will come around again next year. DEVOTE this time to yourself and getting yourself healthy. Next year, you can have the mashed potatoes! That's my advice!
As a cookbook, most recipes are appealing and tasty. Most do not require specialized products (unlike many Atkins recipes). However, the cookbook would benefit from more-detailed organization. The table of contents is only broken down by major categories such as "poultry." The index does list specific recipes under the main ingredient. However, the cookbook would be easier to use if each recipe title were listed under each category in the table of contents. A searchable diskette would be better still to find recipes that use specific ingredients beyond just the main protein. I'm glad I bought the cookbook and will use it heavily. I just wish it would help me out a little more.
The day before starting we prepared the Indian Chicken (made in Kabobs), Rosemary & Mint Meatballs, Hardboiled Eggs, Blackened Lime Shrimp (my recipe), Salmon and Cream Cheese Roullades (these were tiny!) and made sure to have Eggwhites and Fat-Free Cream Cheese on deck. I also made a fat-free Yogurt dip for the shrimp and chicken. This way there is ALWAYS something to munch on.
In 3-days I lost 4.4 lbs (even with Hashimoto’s!). If you are wondering if it’s possible to eat pure protein for several days without going off ‘the wagon’..if you plan ahead like we did, it’s very easy!
I work retail part-time and I run around a lot at work and didn’t have a problem with an 8-hour shift and staying on-track. It’s all about your mindset. You are choosing to change your life in this very minute! Another thing I did before starting was make a list of things I wanted to do during the first few days to keep myself busy. It’s funny, when I’m not dieting I don’t think about food all day (and I LOVE to cook!) but when dieting…it’s all I can think about! LOL! I don’t think I’m alone, thus The List! After Day-1 I quit thinking so much about eating and more about ‘doing’! In fact, my energy is off the charts!
On a side note..I thought that it would be best to start this on my days off (which I did) BUT had I gone into work, I would have been too busy to think about my diet. The whole objective during your protein days is to STAY BUSY so you don’t think about food.Read more ›
