I add a whole stalk of celery (leaves included) while cooking the chicken for my broth. Discard the celery when the chicken is done. And strain the broth to remove any other seasonings you added to the pot. The secret is to add only a few cups of water. You can only make so much really good tasting broth from one chicken - if it is too watered down, it is very blah. Taste the liquid while it is cooking to make sure you have enough salt.

Here is a recipe I posted in the Hard Core Recipe thread. I tweak it when I make it, for instance, I do not add onion, and I do not add so much water. And you can certainly try it in a crock pot, although I never have:

HOME MADE CHICKEN BROTH

Ingredients
2-1/2 pounds chicken pieces with skin
2 celery ribs with leaves, cut into chunks
1/2 onion
1 clove garlic, halved
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
8 to 10 whole peppercorns
2 quarts cold water

Directions
1. Place all ingredients in a soup kettle or Dutch oven. Slowly bring to a boil; reduce heat. Skim foam. Cover and simmer for 2 hours.
2. Set chicken aside until cool enough to handle. Remove meat from bones. Discard bones; save meat for another use. Strain broth, discarding vegetables and seasonings. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Skim fat from surface. Yield: about 6 cups.

I'm laughing about my butter conundrum and everyone's response to it. I'm about ashamed of what appears to be my butter addiction. I swear I had no idea how much butter I ate until I started tracking it! I found myself reaching for it today and I had to smack my hand back several times!! lol. Oh, and I didn't lose, so I'm not sure a stick a day is sustainable, ha ha. I don't know if it was the pork rinds, butter, or the chicken livers or just because I'm about to start my TOM, but I went up .2 on the scale. It isn't much of course, but I'm going to start eliminating or cutting back on the culprits to see if that might help.

Food today was:

BPC (two tbl butter, two tbl cream) omelet made with 2 eggs 1/4 cup chicken, 1 ounce cheese, 1/2 tbl butter

Snack: 2-3 tablespoons pate (I know livers are carby, but I've got to eat what I have so I'm just eating a little as a snack until it's done and then I won't make anymore)

Lunch: omelet made with 2 eggs, 1/4 cup chicken, 1 ounce cheese, 1/2 tbl butter

Dinner: 6 ounce hamburger patty

I think this is much closer to 72 induction compliant, and I'm hoping for a drop tmr! I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, but I'm really ready to see my scale move again!! It's starting to get sort of disheartening because the summer hasn't been very kind to me and I I've only lost about 3-4 pounds since May. I think this is going to help- if nothing else, when you're eating not much more than protein and cheese counting carbs is much easier!

I cook so many things in grass fed butter ... love it!

I had a question about red meat. Do you have to eat grass fed, organic? I know conventionally raised cows are fed grain. Can that be a hindrance to weight loss? I was buying the grass fed beef, but it tastes so gamey to me. I really don't care for it.

Kimber, 245.3, holy crow, girl, you are killing it. I seriously want to move in with you and let you cook for me and tell me exactly what to eat!

Out of curiosity, since this is another thing I'm going to seriously cut back on or eliminate if I don't seem to lose like I want to, do you use heavy whipping cream? I've cut back to two tablespoons a day, but I could cut back a little more and still enjoy my coffee. I'd be sad though... but dang, I want to lose like you are!!!

I just buy the regular beef from the grocery store. In my small town, I have no idea where to buy the fancy organic stuff. And I have no idea if it makes a difference in weight loss. I think it is a healthy food concern more than a weight loss thing.

I eat steak just about every night, and it's just plain old steak from the grocery store. I would love to be able to buy organic grass fed beef, but since we eat it almost every night, it's way too expensive.

You're funny! Yes, you do love your butter my girl, no doubt but it ain't the worst thing. I think your tiny blip is probably more from the sodium in the butter and pork rinds. I've been eating an ounce each night and my scale stopped moving so that's probably all it is. Your menu looks fine and once you're done with the pate, you'll be fine.
"Many organ meats are super-nutritious but in Induction you may need to pay attention to portion size, as some organ meats contain high amounts of carbohydrates (Atkins recommends limiting them to 4 oz. per day)."

Most, if not all cattle are "grass fed." It's much cheaper to pasture an animal till market than to be preparing grains for them besides too much is not cost effective for the farmer/rancher. It's also not healthy for the animal?? A little grain, yes but not the bulk of the diet. Sorry, but I don't buy into all this overpriced "organic." I do believe in fruits and veggies without certain chemicals but never heard of non-grass fed livestock?? I found my home raised pigs and cows tasted different but I think that was because I was so used to the store bought meat rather than the "clean" meat at home. Eating meat once or twice a day can be pricey so I just buy regular meat and watch for sales.

Oh Bonny Jean, I meant to tell you, I know it's discouraging to not have the scale move, but having low sodium levels is very dangerous. About four months into Atkins I started having leg cramps, I got dizzy, confused, weak, disoriented and there would be times I would urinate so much that I would get dehydrated, no matter how much water I drank. Scary as that was, it didn't scare me nearly as much as the episodes where my heart would beat wildly- just race in my chest. I'm young and pretty healthy, but I swear there were times when I thought I was having heart problems and should go to the ER! So when it got bad enough I went to the doctor, expecting him to tell me it was low potassium, but the real problem was low sodium! Ever since then I have been very careful to get extra sodium and believe me I can tell when I don't. But I haven't had these terrible symptoms or leg cramps since I started adding extra salt. I don't want ANYONE to go through what I went through- so if you have symptoms similar to mine the extra salt in the pork rinds might be what you need. Or extra salt in any form, for that matter, if you don't want to eat pork rinds every day. I hope that helps! I hate that you're having leg cramps in the middle of the night, they're miserable!

Well thanks Lily and you know I read about the heart and low sodium and thankfully the only thing I've suffered from was these leg cramps. So sorry you went thru that but AGAIN why wouldn't that show up on my blood tests. In 11 months, I've gone thru the "full monty" and my numbers always come back to my dr.'s amazement so hence my confusion.

Do they test your salt level when they do normal bloodwork? I don't even know what that's called. I have no idea, that's why I was asking, I just wasn't sure if that's part of a normal blood work up?

Oh, okay, so you've had blood tests recently. That is odd, then! The only thing I can think of is it's my understanding that salt shows up pretty quickly in the blood, so you could have had low sodium earlier that day but if you'd eaten recently it may have elevated it to normal levels? It does sound like your sodium depletion level may not be as severe as mine was, so that's good, but leg cramps are still a problem! (as anyone's whose flown out of bed howling in the middle of the night knows!) I know I never intentionally cut salt, but I don't eat much processed food and don't like things really salty, and I was drinking too much water I think. Now I just drink when I'm thirsty and that seems to help, though it may have slowed down my weight loss.

Well, I hope you figure it out. Maybe you just need a sodium boost in the evening before sleep if you're okay the rest of the day?

That's a good question! I know my doctor took my blood specifically to test my electrolytes. I don't know if it would be the same for general blood work.

Being a diabetic, I have a full blood panel done every 3 months - sodium, potassium and chloride are included. You may have to specifically ask if your electrolytes are included in your blood tests.

MamaG, Paulette and Lily ... okay, good question. Hmm, I did tell him I was on Atkins and what I was eating and not eating. I did specifically ask him to check ALL my levels and Dr. Delicious is pretty thorough but maybe I'll use this as an excuse to go see him again. He knows about the leg cramps and agreed I should try mag & pot but that didn't seem to work so oh, poor me has to make another trip to see my darling doctor.
For those that don't know my 35 yr old doctor is a cross between Zac Efron and George Clooney. Ha-ha.. nanner nanner!!

lucky dog! mine's very nice and didn't try to talk me out of Atkins, but he's old enough to be my father. Still... he didn't try to talk me out of Atkins (I was so worried about that! I knew I'd stay strong, but his opinion is important to me) so he's my Hero!

Got hungry again after dinner so ate 3 more oz of hamburger and 4 pieces of bacon. I think maybe I'm cooking the amount of protein I ate when I was eating vegetables, and since I'll have less to fill my stomach I need to cook more. That's Atkins' main draw: no hunger! Yay! (and bacon)

Lily - I don't have HWC very often anymore because it slowed my weight loss down. Yes, it was sad that I had to give it up, and I resisted doing so for 2 months! When I finally got serious about this, I dropped it. Basically I eat the same things everyday. 2 eggs, 3 Tbs mayo for b-fast, 4 oz burger for lunch, 8 oz Ribeye steak for dinner with 1 Tbs butter. On the RARE occasion (like maybe twice a month) that I am hungry between meals, I will have 1 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese or 10 green olives. When a holiday comes along, I allow myself a small salad with my dinner and I have some coffee jello with some redi whip.

Honestly, it wasn't until I went to eating this way that I truly lost my appetite for carbs. I can walk through a bakery and not blink an eye. I have not even begun to feel tempted even when I'm around people that eat it. I'm just not interested. I like what I eat, how it makes me feel satisfied, and love the feeling of being in control of what I eat. I have a rule at work...if I didn't bring it.....I don't eat it! That puts those saboteurs in their places!!

You have to find what works for you. Decide what you can eat that makes you happy. You can do this!!

Evening Everyone!

Welcome back, MG. Congrats on reaching the 120's! Great vacation photos, thanks for sharing.

Regarding the Soy Sauce in my Korean Beef - I just checked again and it's Kikkoman Soy Sauce (Original) and it is 0 carbs. I don't use it often, but I did recall reading that it had 0 carbs. For me, it was a source of sodium, since I really don't eat a lot of salt (except for salting my meat before grilling).


I'm checking in super late tonight and haven't had a chance to read Everyone's posts yet. Just wanted to say hello quick, but will have to catch up tomorrow.

184 today for me despite having TOM! Had a great day today with several NSV! WOO-HOO! Will fill you all in tomorrow, but for now, headed out to the pool for a nighttime swim and campfire with the family. I'm really savoring these last few weeks of SUMMER!

Sleep well Everyone...wishing you all a peaceful, leg-cramp free night!

Colleen

Keep up the great work!

Bonny - I want your doctor!! When I get leg cramps at night I drink sugar-free tonic water, 8 oz. glass, for 2-3 nights in a row and they stop. I haven't had any in a long time now but have the tonic water on hand for when they hit.

Hi everyone! Another busy few days, I've been reading to keep up with you all.

Down to 197, lost whatever that blip was..hoping the downward trend continues.

Bonny - Have you tried tonic water with quinine? My gram had leg cramps and quinine helped...not sure the carb count but I know they have diet tonic water.

MG - In the 120s SWEET!! I can't even imagine that number!!

Colleen and Yankee great pics!

Hello everyone else! Chat with ya tomorrow!

Welcome back, MG. Congrats on reaching the 120's! Great vacation photos, thanks for sharing.

Regarding the Soy Sauce in my Korean Beef - I just checked again and it's Kikkoman Soy Sauce (Original) and it is 0 carbs. I don't use it often, but I did recall reading that it had 0 carbs. For me, it was a source of sodium, since I really don't eat a lot of salt (except for salting my meat before grilling).


I'm checking in super late tonight and haven't had a chance to read Everyone's posts yet. Just wanted to say hello quick, but will have to catch up tomorrow.

184 today for me despite having TOM! Had a great day today with several NSV! WOO-HOO! Will fill you all in tomorrow, but for now, headed out to the pool for a nighttime swim and campfire with the family. I'm really savoring these last few weeks of SUMMER!

Sleep well Everyone...wishing you all a peaceful, leg-cramp free night!

Colleen

Keep up the great work!
The second ingredient is wheat. Definitely not zero carbs.

bmac, thanks I think I'm going to pick up some pork rinds during my next shopping trip. I'm thinking of making a coating for chicken. Or making one of Paulette's sauces, but regardless, I'll pick them up.

Bonny where is this Doctor located? Dr. Delicious you say? If he was my Doctor I'd be ill regularly.

Colleen, can't wait to hear about your day today!!

Neener, glad the scale is moving downwards again! And thanks for the compliment! I'm a bit shiny but that's to be expected in Florida!

My 2 year old started her first day of preschool today. She's very attached to me and I know from past experience with my son, when dropping them off with their teacher, kiss them and leave and not to linger because it makes it harder on both of us. Well I did that. I kissed her on the head, told her I loved her and ran out as quick as I could with tears in my eyes. I was sick to my stomach all morning. When I picked her up at noon, her teacher said she did great, didn't cry once. Then she looks up at me and says, "I like school Mommy"...thank you God!

Have a great night all!

They're afraid we'll take it the wrong way. But don't worry, in time they'll start saying something.
Thanks MtherGoos! I love your pics too, you look so amazing!!
You're probably right about my Ortho. I guess it is awkward for some people to comment. It's a touchy subject.
