I expected it--as a diabetic it is a given that I am insulin resistant.

I opened a ****** account, but haven't put anything into it yet. At this point in my very new LC life, I want it primarily to track my carbs and allow me more variety than Atkins '72 salad induction for my 20 carbs.

I made my first chocolate coconut oil bark as I was sooo craving the chocolate. It tastes really good and was so easy.... I put it on the dehydrator thinggy that you can use to turn applesauce into fruit leather and set it in the fridge. It breaks right off cleanly

This weekend I am going to clean out my fridge of the higher carb sauces and cook up a mess of meat for lunches next week

Bridget
Bridget no shoe fits 2 people alike.
I was on Atkins 72/68 for 17 months.
I did NOT add and mix things up.
I ate what they call clean.
I think you will slow the scales way down eating some of things to satisfy your cravings.
You can take about 3 tab. HWC and add that dark bitter choc. to a mug of water. Nuke or boil it and add Stevia. Not Stevia in the Raw,, it has sugar it it. Liq. splenda does not have sugar but powdered does. Check the label. Do you see the sugar in it. Sugar hides in many forms.
Do you see the word? Google it.

When I first started I could use splenda and it did not stop weight loss. I can't now.

Bridget I am just trying t help you.

and that CO chocolate. It can be mighty hard to stop eating it, just like the clouds. I made the Co several times and I gained several pounds. The clouds were wonderful! I made them once. I consider it a gateway to cocaine carbage!

I'm sorry. I know you did not ask me for my O
I just constantly get my feet stuck in gumbo. Thats what we have here that is called in some places dirt.

Too much fat.....stops the burn.....now this is just my O

Hi Mary Louise

Hope you are feeling good.
I so wish I could eat the CO but I have tried several times and it just makes me feel sick.

I have read so may good things about it.
I have also read many good things about pastured butter and that is the kind that I am eating.

It is so sad about Atkins chick's cat. It just breaks my heart. I have lost a cat before and I never really got over it.

Have you tried the kind that smells great?
I was using that horrible Louana. UGH!
I ran out of the great stuff and put a tab in my coffee about 3 weeks ago. It like to have made me sick as a dog! It was sooo salty! And I had been using it for at least a year.

Mary Louise...please feel free to share anything that comes to mind. Right now I am a sponge...just absorbing it all. I'm a big girl. I listen, process, & make my own decsions. I appreciate the advice of those who have succeeded the hard way...you are letting me learn from your experience

My chocolate treat I think is ok..I will watch and see if it becomes a "gateway drug" It was just coconut oil, cocoa, liquid stevia, & splenda (pkts). I know the pkts have issues, and have been moving away from them and into liquid stevia. my final product is less then 1/8 inch thick...and I just had a small piece (maybe an inch x 1/3 inch) with my coffee...took away the craving wonderfully.

I'm not ready to give up my sweets yet, and I know that is a problem. So I made it myself...having control over what is in it. Fortunately, I am not a chocolate fiend....or even a sweets fiend. A little lasts a long time for me.

What is going to be hard for me is the starches. I bake for myself and have several different kinds of flours and whole grains at the house where I made my own bread, pastry, tortillas, dumplings, sauces, etc. I also love potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squashes. These are what is the hardest for me to give up and what I know I cannot possibly have "a bite" of.

I prefer my truth straight up...not spoon-fed
Bridget

I use Kerrygold Pure Irish butter.
It is from Ireland.
They use milk from grass-fed cows, from small family farms.
The taste is wonderful and the health benefits are said to me many.
Yes, it does cost a bit more but I am willing to make compromises with
other expenses in order to afford it.
They have started selling it at Costco!

As far as the CO goes I just can't do
I tried the virgin organic more expensive kind.
I even made the bark with it and I could not eat it
I decided to just use in as a skin cream and that even made me feel sick.
By that time the smell was enough to set me off.
I have heard of coconut butter. I should give that a try.

Thanks anyway for trying to working on me Mary Louise...I is a lost cause when it comes to CO

My papaw's side was Irish and my mamaw's side was Scott's!

Yes I have always wanted to go to Ireland!
Cathleen knows I would have to take a fast boat though!
Me no fly. If God had wanted me to fly HE would have given me wings

My aunt/cousin always said one day she would see Ireland. Maybe she can see it now from Gods ARMS........

This has been true for me to Bridget. I was really into cooking...bread....cake...pies....pasta....everyth ing from scratch.
I had to give up my love of cooking all those carby things. I had spent years perfecting my skills and experimenting with new things. I have tons of interesting cook books that I use spend hours pouring over.

Now it is eggs, bacon, meat and an occasional LC treat!
It is a big change but worth it.

Well the weekend is here!
I just wanted you guys to know that I share this computer with two other people my husband and my daughter(my son is the only lucky duck around here to have his own computer).
So it can be difficult for me to get on when everyone is home. And then of course we do enjoy time together. I live for the weekends!!
I will try to check in if I can. If not I will be back for sure on Monday!
Just wanted you to know.

I can cook anything too.
Never really got into Breads. Wish I had. For special times like Thanksgiving and Christmas. The smell of yeast makes it, that time of year for me!

We just have to rel~earn to do all of those things the NO carbie way. Right?!
Mama as she told it, could not boil water when she married my...bio-dad

Mamaw could do anything. This is why she died too young. She was 62. I will be 62 next April. I am my mamaw made over. She was diabetic from all the years of doing all of the above things!

Dr. Atkins said high blood sugar causes heart disease and TONS of other health problems. I do not want to continue to follow her foot steps.

You said eggs, bacon and meat.
Heather you are lowing protein, right.
Can you start to add one serving, half cup, of green beans to one meal a day??
Just try to do it. And only heat the beans to a ate-able stage, or eat them cold. I eat most veggies slightly warmed or almost cold.

So happy for you that H is home

My chocolate treat I think is ok..I will watch and see if it becomes a "gateway drug" It was just coconut oil, cocoa, liquid stevia, & splenda (pkts). I know the pkts have issues, and have been moving away from them and into liquid stevia. my final product is less then 1/8 inch thick...and I just had a small piece (maybe an inch x 1/3 inch) with my coffee...took away the craving wonderfully.

I'm not ready to give up my sweets yet, and I know that is a problem. So I made it myself...having control over what is in it. Fortunately, I am not a chocolate fiend....or even a sweets fiend. A little lasts a long time for me.

What is going to be hard for me is the starches. I bake for myself and have several different kinds of flours and whole grains at the house where I made my own bread, pastry, tortillas, dumplings, sauces, etc. I also love potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squashes. These are what is the hardest for me to give up and what I know I cannot possibly have "a bite" of.

I prefer my truth straight up...not spoon-fed

Bridget your Avatar saying. I call my CO coffee Liquid Gold. If you take it out in sunlight it shimmers. I think I could live of CO and black coffee.

Have you tried your coffee with CO yet?
