Breakfast is usually coffee with heavy cream. If I’m hungry, eggs: boiled and buttered, cheese omelette, over easy with bacon.

There’s a version of hot cereal you can make, with seeds and nuts and almond flour, but it’s too carby to have a satisfying portion.

I’ll also mash an avocado and sprinkle it with everything-bagel seasoning and a little bit of sushi rice vinegar. That’s effing delicious.

I keep a lot of little resealable containers filled with the common kinds of finger foods I've come to know from various get-togethers over the years: deviled eggs, salami roll-ups with cream cheese, smoked salmon, assorted pickles and olives, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, assorted chicken wings, water chestnuts wrapped in bacon, chicken livers, vegetable sticks with sour cream dip, various cheeses....lots of assorted nibbly items. You get a variety of tastes and textures that way, and you can buy a lot of the items prepared from a good deli. I always have some fruit, but I don't eat a lot of fruit at any single sitting because of the natural sugars. But a half an apple with some cheese and a hard-boiled egg isn't a big splurge.

I worry much less about carbs than about excess of protein. Excessive protein does tremendous damage to the kidneys and also leads to things like depletion of calcium, meaning that people have to consume a lot of dairy products in order to keep their spines from collapsing. If people would learn to eat their carbs in unrefined forms (whole grains, potatoes in jackets, sweet potatoes in their skins) and avoided white sugar, white flour, and alcohol, their waist lines AND their health would thank them for it. They'd feel fuller, eat fewer calories, have lower blood sugar, and avoid putting on weight. The recommendations of the food scientists are correct. Enough protein to match the size of the palm of your hand is entirely sufficient for a full-day's supply.

The Greeks had it correct 2500 years ago. All things in moderation.

Poor deluded should @ R34. Our bodies evolved to eat primarily meat and vegetables with occasional fruits and nuts. We do NOT NEED ANY whole grains. Did you know you can not go out into a field of wheat and just chow down. That's because your body isn't able to digest it in its natural form. It must be "processed" in some way first. It's very bad for you.

[quote]Unless you have some sort of allergy, the rare dish of pasta or a piece of cake is not going to make any difference to your health. None.

Dumb R20. I got my diabetes into remission with a strict ketogenic diet. Yes, a plate of pasta can and will have negative impact on my health. I don't particularly care if Aunt Ida is insulted if I won't eat her sugar laden apple pie. She needs to find other ways to get validation besides poisoning people.

OP, here's what I eat and it is very satisfying:

Breakfast: nothing but coffee. I do a 17/7 intermittent fast so I only eat lunch and dinner. This is not hard. Being ketogenic means you literally are NEVER hungry.

Lunch: usually whatever is left over from the night before - meat (or chicken or fish) and veg with butter (or salad with O&V), maybe a piece of cheese, some olives, some nuts. Maybe some berries with sugar free whipped cream or other keto friendly dessert.

Dinner: same as above.

Ugh, wrong. Keto is not an "eat mountains of fat" diet. You need to count your macros and stay within a certain limit. Look at what I eat @ R41. That doesn't seem like a lot of food because it isn't. I average about 1400 cals per day to lose steadily. And I am never hungry or craving because I eat an adequate amount of protein and fat (about 80 g -100 g each) to stay satiated. Carbs are what make you hangry. Once you eliminate them, poof---no more hunger, great sleep and tons of energy.

You were doing keto wrong if you only lost 5 lbs and then quit. Sorry, that 5 lbs was mostly water because keto de-bloats your body in the early days. Carbs inflame your tissues and make your retain a ton of water. Ever hear of carb face?

Anyway, once you get "fat adapted" (body burning your own fat suit for fuel instead of the ever present glucose swimming around in your blood when you eat a lot of carbs) you begin to lose about 2 lbs of pure fat per week max, while maintaining muscle mass.

I do slow carb and try to keep it under 80g per day. I need the fiber (and take Metamucil) and don’t want to have to go on meds to lower my cholesterol. I usually have oatmeal and one slice of Ezekiel bread (open face sandwich), half a grapefruit, blueberries, huge green salad every day. I always make some kind of vegetable(s) to have with dinner and have sweet potatoes several times a week.

That's a good diet for a lot of people, R57. If you have a fairly healthy metabolism, it's great. You are doing yourself a world of good by cutting them that low . But people like me, who are metabolically broken (diabetic and pre-diabetic), can't go that high on carbs. I try to stay under 25 net carbs per day. Everything we eat has 'some' carbs, so it's easy to rack up 25 in a day without eating any GPS at all.

by Anonymousreply 58February 10, 2021 5:51 PM

I don't know how to square some of the statements above with the following:

All whole grains help regulate blood sugar by slowing the transformation of starches into glucose. Eating at least three servings of whole grains daily can reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by almost 30 percent, according a study published in "The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" in 2003. Eat grains in their purest form, such as brown rice, hulled barley and oats, and look for breads and crackers labeled "100 percent whole grain." A few whole grains, in particular, including barley, oats and amaranth, work particularly well at controlling blood sugar, according to Leslie Beck, R.D., author of "Foods That Fight Disease."

Whole Grains Explained Whole grains are made of three parts -- the outer bran layer, which is loaded with fiber; the germ layer, which contains nutrients, healthy fats and antioxidants; and the endosperm, which contains the starch. The fiber, and in particular, soluble fiber, in the bran slows digestion of a whole grain so it's absorbed less quickly from the gut. When grains are processed, they're stripped of everything but the endosperm. The body digests this starch quickly, causing blood sugar to rise. Additionally, when a whole grain is processed, it is stripped of at least 17 nutrients and 25 percent of its protein. Disease-fighting phytochemicals are lost as well.

Try Barley Barley, the oldest cultivated grain, according to Beck, contains 6.4 grams of fiber per 1/2 cup of cooked barley, making it a smart choice for regulating blood sugar. Choose hulled barley, which contains the whole grain, rather than pearl barley. Barley has a chewy texture and rich, nutty flavor. Add it to soups and casseroles, or cook it alone and use it as a pilaf or breakfast cereal. Hulled barley should be soaked and takes longer to cook than pearl barley. To cook hulled barley, combine 1 part barley with 3 1/2 parts water. Simmer the barley, uncovered, until cooked -- typically 60 to 90 minutes.

Eat Your Oats Oats are high in soluble fiber, as well as magnesium, which helps improve the body's ability to use insulin, according to a study published in the "Archives of Internal Medicine" in 2007.

These statements are verified by journals of nutrition. Not finding that verification in some of the statements made by earlier posters.

See that's the thing r61. All this earnest planning and doing and making sure, does it actually do shit? I suspect when the vast majority of people are born they are just fated to die in a particular decade of their life. All the careful eating and exercise and other shit can maybe give them a year or two, but really, does it matter? Yes, accidents and murder etc can carry you off at some much earlier date, but I suspect genetics is the biggest factor by far on whether you get to your 80s or 90s or 100s.

I was so excited to see this post. So I know I’m a cliche, but I obsess over my diet (all natural and carb-free) because I don’t have much of a personality or social life. It gives me something to focus on and a purpose. I started when I turned 50 (11 months ago) and I can tell you that I feel amazing and I’ve lost 3 inches off my waist. I used to eat garbage and fast food and I just felt miserable. For example, breakfast is a boiled egg, avocado (seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and a handful of blueberries. Snacks throughout the day are roasted almonds. Lunch is a piece of chicken and a veggie. Dinner is never past 7pm and consists of chicken, canned salmon, tuna, and a veggie. It’s boring, but after I lost my sugar/carb cravings it’s easy to manage now. I do find myself judging people who eat processed garbage, but that’s part of the fun!

LOL. Oh my sides. Replace the word "pasta" with heroin and you have your answer as to why obesity is exploding in the western world. Sugar and wheat are highly addictive. Any food that makes you cry because you get so high eating it is NOT nutrition. It's a drug. There is NOTHING in pasta that your body "needs". And whole grains are only slightly better than the white stuff. It's all sugar once it hits your blood stream. It's like someone saying they are healthy because they only smoke "light" cigarettes.

Odd as this sounds by DL yardstick, I actually don't eat enough.

Eating and prepping food just bores me rigid, basically, and I'm lazier and more unmotivated than I am a greedy fat bitch, so I would rather forgo food if it means an excuse not to exercise.

Anyone got any hacks? I'm meant to be like, guzzling omelettes with protein shakes and lifting weights and shit, but I hate both those things so much. Is there a less hardcore diet or gentler exercise program that can get my weak soft starved body going again?

Coffee with heavy cream for breakfast and for the next few hours, chicken bone broth with lemon, ginger and turmeric (how Gooptastic, I know - it's just for convenience really and I like the seasoned taste a lot), or a cloud bread sandwich (chicken or steak strips, mustard or keto mayo or worcestershire sauce, lettuce) for lunch. Scrambled eggs or steak or roast chicken for early dinner. Cheese as a snack whenever I feel hungry. Haven't felt like cooking lately so that really has been it lately. Also I like a few glasses of wine (DRY - very dry is essential for keto) every few nights so I keep my food carbs to a bare minimum if I'm planning something like that so I can stay under 25.

Beware with drinking on Keto - the hangover will be brutal on relatively little booze. You've GOT to have a low carb rehydration drink or packets or something to take before bed. You can make some good ones yourself by using lime juice and "No Salt" and something else I forget at this very moment. Easy to find recipes online.

When I first started I cooked chicken curry and Thai coconut chicken soup and froze large batches to have for lunch, or with cauliflower rice for dinner. Delicious. Having said that, simple steak, chicken or eggs for dinner is my norm.

Poached egg and salmon for breakfast

The great thing about eating low-carb is that my hunger has virtually disappeared, so I skip breakfast. I eat lunch between 11.30 and 2 and dinner at around 8pm.
