DairyQueen 02-22-2013 06:22 AM

Um ok. I've never tried it.....tastes like....pickles???

I sometimes take a big swig of cream. Next confessor?

kempmuhlbauer 02-22-2013 07:38 AM

I have gotten so use to eating all the meat that I sometimes do not even warm up the bacon, sausage, or chicken legs, I like them cold.

LiterateGriffin 02-22-2013 07:41 AM

Mayo. On a spoon.

ETA: With peanut butter.

DairyQueen 02-22-2013 05:03 PM

NoSunNoFun 02-22-2013 05:10 PM

Butter on a spoon with salt spinkled on it. I let it get a bit warm then dust it with a bit more salt..

kempmuhlbauer 02-22-2013 07:10 PM

When others are eating bread at a rest. I will just scoop butter and eat it also. I will try a little salt on it next time

NoSunNoFun 02-23-2013 07:18 AM

Cream cheese with Salsa on top warmed.. OMG!

Becca4277 02-24-2013 11:55 AM

Ooooh now I want a swig of cream!

h82bl8 02-25-2013 11:11 AM

An individual packet of cream cheese squeezed straight into my mouth.

blondosaurusrex 02-25-2013 07:25 PM

OMG I thought I was the only one who took the occasional drink of pickle juice! But only when no one is looking...

PaleoRainy 02-26-2013 03:39 AM

Butter, take the stick and a knife and eat straight through it, lol. Stop before to see the end...

I steal the crispy skin from a roasted chicken before I call my husband to the dinner table.

kempmuhlbauer 02-26-2013 04:43 AM

EMEL: luckly for me my wife hates the skin on chicken so it leaves it all to me. But when at a party and there is chicken to eat, I will always steal the skin off a breat or two. Those low fatters never eat it anyway.

NoSunNoFun 02-26-2013 05:33 AM

I cut the fat part off the bacon and fry that up and eat it. Leaving the pink parts for hubby or cooking. Why cannot I just buy bacon fat?! Hmm.. wondering if I could ask the butcher at the local market to just package me up some fat! lol

emel 02-26-2013 05:37 AM

Kemp,
I like the no-antibiotic no-hormone chicken, and the only kind in my store that isn't skinless and boneless is the whole bird.
I've been buying some of the boneless skinless parts--breasts or thighs-- for convenience, but I think I'll start buying only the whole birds and cutting some up for parts.

kempmuhlbauer 02-26-2013 01:24 PM

Emel: Yea i butcher my own chickens sometimes also. I to like the same type of chicken. They do sell the dark parts with the skin but are out sometimes. Oh I think I will have some skin right now of the left over bird in the fridge.

Over the weekend, I went to Lobsterfest with some colleagues. And they'd been to the same restaurant with each other when I wasn't with them so they started telling me this story about how, the last time they were all there together, they sat across from what they called a "heavy couple" who were eating crab legs and butter. Apparently, the couple was drinking melted butter out of the little ramekins to such an extent that their waiter brought them a plate with multiple little dishes of melted butter, which they drank.

While my colleagues were telling me this story, I looked up the nutrition info on my tracker and found that EACH serving of "100% Pure Melted Butter" at Red Lobster contains 2g carbohydrates. I didn't talk to my colleagues about this -- because I don't want to discuss my body or diet with professional colleagues -- but I hope that couple wasn't on Atkins! Because I'm sure they didn't expect a tiny dish of melted butter to be a 2g carb hit! I hope that couple just loves butter and wasn't trying to HFLC.

NoSunNoFun 02-27-2013 04:46 PM

What could they put in butter that could bring the carb count up that high? Mmmm crab leggs and drawn butter is my FAV!!!!

SweetMe678 02-28-2013 12:56 PM

I am thankful that I am not the only one who occasionally eats a spoonful of mayo! I find that sometimes when I"m dishing it up, it just seems like it'll be soooo tasty.

kempmuhlbauer 02-28-2013 01:51 PM

Butter at places like red lobster when they reduce it to clarify it they will some times sweeten it with sugar, go figure.

THIS is why I go out with people and just hang out, while refusing to eat anything. I don't trust restaurants -- even for dishes that *seem* like they should be naturally low in carbs! I don't think the 2g or carbs, or whatever, would have ruined by diet but if I wouldn't choose to consciously eat it at home I don't want to eat it just because some restaurant believes it *improves* the flavor of their food.

Oy! thats just wrong!!

kempmuhlbauer 03-01-2013 04:39 AM

Even at buffalo wild wings, there plain jane chicken tendres have 2 carbs each, found out the hard way. I ate 6 of them and was out of ketosis and was like what the heck, then checked the BWW web page and bam there was the reason.

LoriAS 03-01-2013 09:01 AM

1 part sour cream + 1 equal part salsa = mix together = YUM (eaten with a spoon)




ETA: occaisionally I will use a pork rind.

Kimberli33 03-01-2013 05:14 PM

I like the fat on a Rib-eye steak better than the meat

NoSunNoFun 03-01-2013 07:49 PM

Kimber, ohh yes that is my fav too! My husband leaves that part, or cuts it off and I grab my fork and move that over to my plate as quick as i can :)
