Dottie-the "lemon cream pie" sounds delicious! I may have to try that!!!

DD for me, though friends may be coming for supper and if so I'll turn it in to a MD.

B/L- 2 Hebrew National hot dogs (80)
Supper-if friends...steak bites, creamed spinach, Alfredo noodles. If not, Bocca burger with cheese and salad

Snack-hmmmm...."lemon cream pie" maybe :)

dasiey 12-13-2011 05:28 AM

UD for me

I am going to have 300c of lcarb foods for breakfast and lunch.

My hunny is taking me out for dinner. I will try to be a good girl.

SlowSure 12-13-2011 06:39 AM

UD for me, too.

Breakfast was an oatmeal pancake with berries.

Lunch was butternut squash soup with some diced konnyaku block.

Dinner will be salt beef (it's been cooking away for 2 days) with steamed cabbage and braised peas.

Depending on how many pieces of beef I eat, there might be sufficient calorie allowance to permit an oatcake or Finn Crisp with a very low fat Laughing Cow wedge.

MintQ8 12-13-2011 06:50 AM

UD here too!

EMS: 1 x Char Sui Bao
B: Salmon Eggs Benedict, 1 saushage and a half slice of black pudding
L: 1 slice of cheese on toast
D: @ an Indian Restaurant - thinking Tikka or Tandoori (no rice, no bread!)

There may also be wine - this will take me over my cals - but I don't see family that often - normally I'm in another country!!

Knittering 12-13-2011 07:01 AM

DD

Coffee w/H&H
Egg white omelet with 1oz ham and laughing cow cheese
Broth with asian veggies
Chili with extra tomatoes & peppers

tiva 12-13-2011 07:08 AM

DD:
coffee w/cream (100)
grass-fed lean beef patty with red pepper puree (200)
kale w/olive oil (100)
chicken stock (20)
for a treat: either bourbon (80) or a tiny piece of Dubliner cheddar

Ah now you've caught my attention. My daughter Vicky, see below, and I love the shiritake noodles and use them a lot on our DDs but I have yet to pluck up the courage to try the Konnyaku block. Do you use it often? We have had trouble getting hold of the noodles recently but hte block is usually available. Thanks.

I am guessing you had breakfast at the Farm Shop? Lovely. As long as you don't go overboard on the wine you should be fine Vicky.

UD here too. 1 Marmite cheese before the gym. A Waitrose Christmas Dinner pasty with salad for lunch and we plan on duck breasts this evening.

Pasty was only average, but after years of LC so welcome.

handbells 12-13-2011 07:30 AM

Friends coming, so making it a MD. Works out very well because there are a few days coming up that needed to be UD's, and now they are! Just need to work out details for Christmas Eve/Day and New Year's Eve/Day.

Dasiey-enjoy your meal out with your hunny!

What is konnyaku?

avecrain 12-13-2011 07:35 AM

UD!

For breakfast, I had:
2 corn tortillas, 2 fried eggs, 1 oz mozzarella, 1 sausage patty, 1/2 apple, all wrapped up together. YUMMMM.

Not sure what I'll be eating for the rest of the day yet!

It's the japanese block form of konjac/glucommanan.

pjsam1156 12-13-2011 08:01 AM

DD for me.
Coffee w/almond milk for breakfast
I brought a huge salad to work for lunch, with SF rasp vinegarette dressing
Dinner: prob a lean cuisine of some sort because DH and DD won't be home for dinner

I'm still amazed at how, being a sweets addict, I only have cravings for sweets on UDs now.:confused: I'm fine on DDs, maybe a bit hungry, but have NO interest in sweets. On UDs, I not only want to eat all day long--I want sweets after dinner--just like I always did before I started JUDDDing. Well, at least that's only half the time now!:hyst:

kel7298 12-13-2011 08:07 AM

DD here in TX

dasiey 12-13-2011 08:11 AM

Thanks handbells. i think we will have lots of fun.

We got our holiday bonus so off to party after work.
I work most days about 14 hours.
today is my short day.8 hours

vilanteira 12-13-2011 08:26 AM

Ud for me.

B: 2 soft boiled eggs, 4 slices of bacon
L: crack slaw (finally done with my oversized batch of this...now I don't want crack slaw for a very long time!)
D: we may go out for sushi, or if not I'll have some of my low carb deep dish pizza and a low carb pumpkin muffin
S: Blue Diamond lime and chili almonds

Approximately 1900 calories if we go out for sushi and skip the snack, if not about 1800.

KeirasMom 12-13-2011 08:36 AM

First UD for me:

Breakfast:
Drive through :stars:
Fruit and Maple Oatmeal
Fruit and yogurt parfait

Lunch:
Leftover steak--3.6 oz
Leftover fish--1.9 oz
Salad

Dinner:
Not sure yet, but I'm going to have tons of calories to play with. :jumpjoy:

First DD wasn't too bad yesterday, and I came in right at 400 calories. Is it okay to go that low on a DD?

Definitely ok. I struggled to get mine under 500 for the first several DDs, so congrats on that! I find for me that the lower I go on DDs, the faster I lose, even if I end up going over a bit from time to time on my UDs, but I know it's different for everyone.

Your menu for the day sounds delightful. The Konnyaku block from the Japan Centre is a very good white colour (not the dishwater colour variety) and slices/dices well: it also takes up a marinade which is helpful.

On the off-chance that you have the chitarra pasta-cutting tool, that is a very easy way to cut the Konnyaku block into strips and then turn the strips round and cut those into pasta widths.

JKat 12-13-2011 11:07 AM

DD today

coffee and almond milk

cabbage and laughing cow cheese AGAIN.. Loving it. I will eat it for lunch and dinner. Maybe add in some canned chicken.

I really was POUNDING the veggies, eating POUNDS of them. :o

Kissa 12-13-2011 01:18 PM

Betty that really looks like a balanced diet. Hope it starts to work for you, you so deserve it.

Thank you for the info on the konnyaku SlowSure. I am in Devon for Xmas but will check out the Japan Centre when I am back in town. Our local Japanese stores in North London only sell the ickky brown stuff, lol.

I am afraid I went way over my 1650/1700 today. Blame pistachio nuts and wine. But hey, I am in maintenance!

Dottie 12-13-2011 01:55 PM

Betty I know some veggies suppress thyroid, and I'm thinking broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower might be among them? Also nightshades, if I remember correctly?

Mommie22boys 12-13-2011 04:12 PM

DD for me...

B: coffee w/ SF creamer (49)
L: bouillion (13)
D#1: cabbage/laughing cow/bacon (135)
D#2: cream of tomato soup (156)
S: 2 bites of a tuna salad sammy (28)

That's 381...I'm feeling good right now. I make no promises that I don't still eat something before the night is over, though, lol!

Uncooked broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower (and kale, collards, and all the other cruciforms) can suppress the thyroid. But once you cook them, they're fine. They contain isothiocyanates which reduce thyroid function by blocking thyroid peroxidase, and also by disrupting messages that are sent across the membranes of thyroid cells. (The isoflavones in soy work in similar ways to suppress thyroid function). Isothiocyanates are heat sensitive, which means that when you cook your veggies, you're fine. I wouldn't eat tons of coleslaw, much as I love it. I'm not sure about kimchee or sauerkraut--fermenting cabbage may well knock back those isothiocyanates. (It's fine to eat some isothiocyanates since they protect against cancer).

The nightshades (the Solanaceae family)--ie, tomatoes,, peppers, potatoes, and eggplant--can (rarely) worsen arthritis symptoms. There's not much evidence they affect the thyroid. This is a huge plant family, and there's a huge diversity in the alkaloids in the various species. Unless you know you're allergic to one of the particular species, there's no need to avoid them.

julietcc 12-13-2011 06:38 PM

Good DD for me:

B: Coffee with SF creamer, chicken bouillon cube - 70
L: Half of a lemon chicken salad from Pat and Oscar's with FF dressing and a little regular dressing - 350
D: Carbmaster vanilla yogurt - 60

Total = 480
