It's actually premade. Seems to be all processed beef and I think the carbs listed are in the gravy (which I don't eat).

Hormel Salisbury Steak



Side panel says 6g carbs per steak, 3 steaks per package and that includes the counts for the gravy. I just scrape the gravy off.

I really love them but some reason i am worried about them in induction. I can eat them every day. I love them

Yeah, definitely have to do portion control with those.

Thanks for the compliments on my grub. Yours are beautiful too!

Anyone ever have a day when you were not hungry? At all? All day long? Yesterday was just weird, I couldn't stand the thought of food. I ate, I forced myself to eat some cauliflower and a grilled Angus bacon cheeseburger patty but I seriously had to force myself to eat it. Werid... and so not me!

I am still in small ketosis but I know I have to eat more protein to keep it up...

The loss of appetite is amazing! Yeah, I think most of us get it. I'm on this weird snacking kick. I feel bad if I eat a full meal, but if I snack every couple of hours I feel great.

check your pepperoni for hidden sugars and/or salts.

I have a bag of precooked fajita beef strips and a made some homemade dip and I just keep munching on that when the mood strikes.

If your deviled eggs and pepperoni doesn't excite you, dig through the appetizer section of the recipe room. You should be able to find some goodies that you wouldn't mind munching on.

Actually, not eating enough will put you in to ketosis, too. That is the mechanism that allows people to eat at starvation levels long term. Mind you, taking in too few calories is also very dangerous in the long term (I can introduce you to plenty of people who will attest to that, btw, if you doubt), but you will lose weight

You need to eat more protein, but for a different reason

Not wanting to eat can be an indicator that you are too deep into ketosis.

I got some pork rinds and dip for when I didn't want a meal but wanted to snack...also got some of the itty bitty sausages, turkey pepperoni, and some American cheese so I could try the cracker thingys...

A friend of mine mentioned that it could be the adderall that I just started taking, she said it takes about a month to get in your system and that a temporary side effect is lack of appetite. To bad I didn't start taking it about 8 months ago....LOL

Ah yeah 'she who shall not be named'...no I was never one of the starvation kooks... I was the bad girl that suggested almonds to those who were 'blocked up'.

I checked the ketosis sticks and it was small to medium last few days...

I broke the no hunger kick! I got busy around the house for a couple of housrs then went and worked 5 hours without a break, then went and got gas and MORE groceries...by the time I drove home I was starving...

Had some pork rinds with onion dip...hmmmm it worked, and kept me from eating any thing 'bad' while I got a good dinner done!


Tomorrow is my 1 month offical weigh in day at the doctors! Keep your fingers crossed!

Dinner tonight:

Shrimp Creole



This is an old favorite I hadn't made in quite a while. We definitely ate it up tonight!

Shrimp Creole

1 1/2 pounds uncooked medium shrimp
1 large onion chopped
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green onions
3 garlic cloves minced
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 16 oz can stewed tomatoes (no sugar added)**
1 8 oz can tomato sauce (no sugar added)
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning (no sugar added)
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

If the shrimp is not already peeled, peel it and set aside in a bowl.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the onion, green & red peppers, celery, green onions & garlic to the skillet. Cook over medium high heat until tender (about 3 minutes), stirring often. Stir in the tomatoes and add the next 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the shrimp and cook about 5 minutes more until the shrimp turn pink.

Serve hot in bowls.

**They stopped making the no sugar added stewed tomatoes I was using. This recipe works just as well with canned diced tomatoes (love the roma tomatoes) or canned whole plum tomatoes that you squish as you add them to the skillet.

Enjoy!

I have avoided tomatoes as I thought they had a lot of carbs, but the shrimp creole looks great!

I love shrimp, bring on more shrimp recipes

Yes, tomatoes are on the acceptable list. Enjoy the shrimp!

re: How much cheese per day on Induction:

In DANDR, Dr A said 3-4 oz per day, rather than a flat 4 oz.

I find I need to use it as a condiment, rather than a main ingredient or it stalls me.

Cheese messes with me also, I think it's because it's high in sodium.... I have tried to avoid it or use as little as possible.

Thank you! I was giving the info from memory and I kept thinking 3oz but couldn't remember why.

And I agree, when I ate it daily (multiple cheese sticks a day) I stalled. Not sure if it was the culprit but I actually felt better when I stopped eating them so much.
