Soup's on!

Making soup for this week's DDs.

1 box salt free veggies broth - 100 cal
1 bottle spicy very veggie juice - 200 cal
1 12 oz bag of mixed swiss chard, mustard, turnip and kale - 164 cal
celery, onions and carrots - ? cal

So this big pot of soup is probably under 500 cal and can feed me for the week with leftovers for the freezer. Can I say, GOOD EATS?

YUM! Love love love -- roasted brussel sprouts, and do them the same way you do. This week will be roasted cauliflower and baby carrots.

On my weekend cooking binge!

BBQ short ribs in the crock pot for the hubs.

Dana Carpenter's sour cream, lemon and poppy seed muffins in the oven. I substituted the sour cream with 0% greek yogurt. I figured them to be 67 cal each w 4.25 g of fat.

I'm probably just a worrier, but I hope you can manage the vast majority of your Up Days to be where they are actually the number of calories you should be having to maintain a body's health and especially to prevent your metabolism from slowing way-y-y-y down from the perception that your body must be kept alive during a time of famine and scarcity.

We know that a body needs a certain amount of fat, of protein, of calcium and all the other nutrients to remain healthy and maintain tissue, etc. Since we are getting so little nutrient on DDs, compared to what most would expect is even a normal amount, then it becomes extra important to make sure we get all our needed nutrition on our UDs.

I'm sure you are aware of this and are making sure you are getting all your full nutritional needs on your UDs, even in extra amounts to make up for all that is lost to us from DDs and our fasting at that time with little food and little nutrition. I just wanted to mention it.. just in case. I know I worry too much. LOL

Just don't want to weaken heart muscle or anything. LOL

Well, I did admit that I'm a worrier about folks! Now it does sound that you are doing well and getting your nutrition, and not a 'child'... LOL... so I'll stop fretting and fussing.

But you didn't say anything more about your slow pulse rate. Is this a normal thing for you? Mine is usually down in the 60s, so still in the low end of the normal range. I work out. But I can't even imagine what it would feel like to have it dip to only 49 beats per minute.

Does your heart rate start increasing if you become more active?

Hi.
My heart rate this morning when I got up was 56.
I just took it again, blood pressure is 127 over85
pulse 63.{ Time 1 15 pm
Im going to keep a eye on it. But I feel great.
I dont look my age at all.skin is ageing fine.
The only thing that I must do is lose weight.
Im 4 ft. 11 small bone.so I think in ways that makes me look younger.Except over weight.
My goal is to get down to 120-125 by July.and take it from there.
Today is dd for me having soup>>160 calaries and low fat cheese at 70cals.
Just for the fun part yesterday took my Ketone.>Yesterday was a trace.
Today now small..
If I remember showing ketones is burning fat.??And in judds book it said if calaries on dd are really low. u will show ketone.
I also take vit.b 12.
I know that it does seem to alot of you Im really pushing this. But Im not.It just that on dd I can fast or do very low and that is a good think from book at least thats how i read it.
Ud days I eat and healthy but some times I can not get in all my calaries on uds. But he also saids thats fine too.
I think the reason I got fat. is because of the types of foods{Junk} and way to many calaries.
Thanks for caring and dont stop.
I dont think to many care for me here.>>Dont think Im doing this judd right.
But Im trying. It helps me to have weight lost buddies.
thanks.

Hi Kind!

I just started JUDDD a week ago--it fits more into my lifestyle than just doing plain low carb. I found that in order to lose weight, I needed to drop my fat consumption and calories. I don't necessarily reach my calorie count on UDs too. Last weekend, I had 2 dinners out and cooked a lot on Sunday, and it was no surprise when the scale read 2.5 lbs higher on Monday. Not a big deal since I know it is water weight. Keep on going; you will figure out what works for you. Keeping a food diary helps.

Jane

OMG - Ouizoid's Shirataki Thai Coconut Peanut Noodles

Hats off to Ouizoid AGAIN -- her recipe for http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...super-low.html is sooooo delicious! And if you are having a white-knuckle DD, the recipe as written is a tiny amount of calories in exchange for some stomach-filling yummy food.

I just want to make sure any JUDDDer who likes Thai food and shiratake noodles sees this one--it's a winner!

Sooooo....I finally broke down and ordered some Glucomannan powder and some "official" Miracle noodles, today. I'm probably going to have a million questions for those who use this in recipes. I think I was sold by the testimonials here of feeling "fuller" on DD's. The only shiritaki noodles I can find are the tofu ones that have 40 calories a package and are not the best tasting... I would love to hear your favorite ways to use them or the powder. Are there any threads re: these foods? Thanks!!!

Hi Blonde:

I have the shirataki noodles made only with the gluco flour and pickling lime. I have never tasted the tofu ones as I avoid soy. I believe you can use them the same.

If you go to the Recipe section and do a search or SHIRATAKI NOODLES, or MIRACLE NOODLES you will get oodles of threads.

Best success. I love my noodles!

Well, there's the rub, Rose. These noodles, even the plain ones without the tofu, just aren't the best tasting.. period. Mostly they just don't have any taste at all, really.

I only use them for *fill* because they are 0 calories. I can't chew them at all. They are like chewing on rubber bands. Your teeth just bounce up and down on them for awhile, and then you swallow! I always snip them into little pieces so that they go down a bit easier, but that may just be me.

But they certainly are a wonderful help for that empty tummy feeling, and that is pretty much the only thing that makes DDs very difficult at all. I can go a day without eating much at all with absolutely no problem, IF I'm not feeling all that hungry about it. No hunger pangs... no problem sticking to the Down Day. So the noodles can help you with that.

And the glucomannan powder to thicken up fluids is a really big help for me. Thick stuff seems more like 'food'. And this is another thing that will help keep your tummy feeling full. Why suffer from the hunger pangs that are difficult to resist when this product can help you get through the day in comfort.

It's interesting to see how different we all are! I have no problem at all with chewing the miracle noodles. I kind of like their texture. But then I only order the angel hair and "rice" types, not the thicker styles...dunno if that makes any difference. Also, if you make your meal ahead of time and let it sit for a while, the flavors of whatever sauce or additions you are using really get into the noodles and it seems to me that the noodle texture itself alters a little bit.

My favorite simple noodle recipe is to open a package and rinse well, dry-fry for a few minutes to evaporate some of the moisture, dump in a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of marinara sauce (I'm partial to Trader Joe's) which will add from 25 to 50 cals for the whole batch, then let it sit for a while. Later on, warm it up and it's really good.

BUT--now that I've tried Ouizoid's Thai recipe, that is really awesome too. I used the miracle noodles for the main dish and also made extra sauce with it, thickened with the glucomannan powder--perfect. I also made that ahead of time and let it sit for about 30 mins before warming back up and serving. DH couldn't stop raving about it, and then he hogged up the leftover portion that I thought was going to be my late-night snack!

I've used various gums to thicken sauces in the past and never cared for the results--too thin, too thick, too lumpy or downright nasty tasting at time. Xanthan and Guar gums both have (to me) unpleasant tastes when you use too much--no taste to the glucomannan.

The noodles and the "pudding" from the powder have been the key to me doing so well on this plan. I am also trying to break a lifelong nighttime eating problem, and having this very satisfying and almost calorie-free product to fill my stomach has been life-changing.

I really agree with you, Donna. (Well, except for that being able to chew the noodles part! LOL)

I hated the taste of many of the 'alternate' thickening powders advocated for low carb when actual flour and corn starch were forbidden. The glucomannan powder does a wonderful job in either hot or cold liquids and no 'side' flavor from it. And you can thicken whatever you want, as thick as you want it to be.

Like Donna,
I rather enjoy the chewy texture of the shirataki noodles. I rinse them very well, then I dry fry them in my wok and let the moisture fry off. Then I add my flavorings and like Donna, I let it sit a bit to allow the noodles to absorb the flavors. I use strong flavors and the noodles are just awesome, very "toothsome" and satisfying for me on DDs.

I cannot stomach the "Thick Not Thin" thickener! BLECCCH!

I cannot wait until I can find some gluc powder.

Has anybody tried frying the noodles until they are nice and crispy? I wonder if they could be browned up a little bit.

Hmmmmm..... I going to experiment for lunch! I'll let you all know how this turns out.

OK, I'm doing it. I only had a single package of noodles, and those were the only ones my local grocery had... tofu and shirataki fettuccini. I rarely get anything with tofu/soy at all!!!!! But didn't notice until I had the stuff home, so we'll see.

I have it frying at medium high heat in 1 Tbsp of olive oil. NOT the first choice for oil either as I don't 'fry' with olive oil, but I'm completely out of sesame oil, which is what I'd choose to use.

These noodles must be a LOT of water because I've never heard anything snap and pop and fizzle for so long as it frys, but they are finally beginning to get browned. And they are shrinking too, so that's probably the loss of the water.

I have a couple of green onions sliced all the way up the green stems, and am ready to add them to the frying noodles now, and the oyster sauce is ready. I'll stop back in with a report after a bit.

I bought a couple of packages of the 'yam' noodles this weekend. Do they smell as fishy as the tofu ones? I try to stay away from all soy products too.

Yup, they do. Rinse and rinse and rinse. Although that fishy smell doesn't seem to ever translate into a fishy taste. Luckily.

OK. Delicious!!! This is now how I'm going to fix the noodles from now on.

The frying and browning in oil made a big, big, BIG difference in how 'rubber-band-y' they were to chew. Most of that 'bouncy' texture went away.

But the funniest thing was to watch them after they'd been browning for awhile. They started jumping around in the skillet like popping kernels of corn! I had snipped through the noodles first with a pair of kitchen scissors, so had pieces, and it was the smaller pieces that were jumping the most, including completely out of the skillet!

I added in the sliced green onions w/ the green tops too, and stirred in the oyster sauce, and OMG.. it was so delicious!

I will certainly be having these noodles often now.

The total calories for this was 'about' 140. And almost all of that was the one tablespoon of olive oil. I'm sure I could have done the same amount of frying and browning with a mere 1/2 tablespoon of sesame oil at a greatly reduced calorie count. So that oil is now on my list.

I'm so pleased about this. There are so many ways to top noodles, I was always a little disappointed that I didn't much like them. And this way of drying them and browning them a bit crispy works to make them delectable for me. Yay!

Of course, I haven't tried this with the regular yam noodles. Just these tofu glucomannan ones, but I assume the results will be very similar.
