It's Friday - what are you eating?
 
UD

B: coffee + a cappuccino (keurig one 80 cals)
D: Mexican restaurant, maybe fish tacos
S: no idea lol

I just realised I posted in yesterday's thread, so here goes again:

my first DD today:

- fat free quark (very German, delicious and filling) 250 grams, 178 cals
- tuna packed in water, 90 grams, 96 cals
- wild tomatoes, 100 grams, 17 cals
- garden cucumber (they are tastier than the big watery ones) 100 gams, 12 cals
- lightly smoked turkey breast, sliced, 150 grams, 179 cals.

This brings my total to 482, so I could add some raspberry protein powder (no soy!) to my quark for flavour which would up my protein and add 16 cals for a TB scoop, which would bring my cals up to 498...

I'm new too!!!

xx Chloe.

I've been reading through some of the Atkins for Life menus Dr. Atkins planned out. He wrote this book prior to his death.. it came out in 2003, the same year as he died. I was wondering what all he would have given us in these ensuing years if he had not passed so early.

Breakfast from Atkins Menu Plan 12:
. cheese & mushroom omelet
. 1 slice light rye toast
. 1 orange

Lunch from Atkins Menu Plan 1
. large green salad w/dressing
. 1/2 tomato
. hamburger patty
. 1/3 cup green peas

don't know what for supper yet

B - one egg/two egg white omelet, coffee with HWC ( 275)

KeirasMom 03-30-2012 06:06 AM

DD here but I have an evening meal to eat at a friend's home which will not be DD friendly.

She is preparing a slow roast belly pork.... and that is one of my favourite meals.

I will not eat until we go there, I am managing on broth until then.

So I may be over my calories today, but so what? I saw 120.6 this week.:kicking::steak::kicking:

lynnjp 03-30-2012 07:20 AM

DD and I am on the road running so need to do some processed stuff
I prefer the real deal as that is more filling and I get more bang for my
buck but make due with what I have LOL


breakfast and lunch 2 shakes and a full bar 290 calories
supper cabbage with chicken, kale soup, and a salad 220 calories total for day 510

That's interesting, Pat, and I wonder how his plan would have evolved over time as well. The lunch looks like it could be a "hamburger salad" (except for the peas) like I would sometimes have on LC, where I'd crumbled up a cooked hamburger into the salad (with cheese though) and lettuce, tomato, little onion, and use mayo & a bit of mustard and ketchup as the dressing. :)

vilanteira 03-30-2012 09:47 AM

DD. Happy Friday everyone! :hiya:

B: coffee
L: --
D: 6 slices bacon, 1/2 bag shirataki noodles with ham + spicy chicken andouille sausage + LC blue cheese wedge + fresh hot salsa verde

460 calories total. Attempting shirataki noodles again because they're so much easier to get than the kelp noodles and are cheaper for me. They caused awful bloating and digestive issues the last couple times I tried, but maybe if I have just half a bag instead of the full bag it'll be ok? :aprayer:

Kissa 03-30-2012 10:03 AM

I have been looking at numbers of this meal this evening, and I think I may try a MUDDD day like you Sophie. I have had only 75 cals since 10 last night, so at 7.30 this evening I could start a FD. My day tomorrow is a quiet one with no commitments so I could enjoy a nice breakfast and lunch then do a DD fast until Sunday evening when I am entertaining family.

Any comments?

I have the same problem with miracle noodles! It is SO weird to me because I generally tolerate fiber better than others, but the noodles give me major gas! I do well with half a bag, but it is harder to make a main dish bulk with that amount. I like some of the smaller shapes in soups and stuff (rice, orzo) and don't seem to bloat as much with those.

Hello, I decided to have 3 egg whites (51) rather than the one whole egg; more to eat, and I saved half the calories, bringing my total down to 506!! :up: :D

Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely try the rice and orzo shapes if this doesn't work out well because I really want this to work. The half bag definitely makes it a smaller dish, so I'm hoping that I can increase my tolerance for it if I try the half bag for some time and work up to the full bag.

Momto2boysNJ 03-30-2012 10:27 AM

I had an egg mcmuffin today. 300 calories, not really worth it.

I think it will work very well for you, Cindy. :) You don't even have to stay on MUDDD, but could mix it into your JUDDD plan now and then. For example, MUDDD on the weekends if you wanted and then go back to regular rotation during the week. Or just throw in a MUDDD day or two when you need/want them. Try it and see what you think. You're in maintenance and can be even more flexible now.

I do MUDDD often but then while I'm doing it I often will mix in other IF, such as Fast 5. For example, I might have several days in a row that are dd/FD, where I eat up to (or less than, it doesn't seem to matter) my normal DD calories during the day, then start my FD at 5 p.m. or so and go until bedtime. Then repeat the next day as needed/desired. This works out great for me when there is going to be an evening function or I know I'll be making something great and calorific for dinner and want to be able to join in. I get about 20 hours of DD level calories which is still an admirable intermittent fast in my book, and has worked well for me.

Anyway, I'm rambling on now, and I don't want to confuse you. :) Just don't be surprised if you lose even more weight in maintenance now if you do some MUDDDg. :)

So many things just aren't worth it, but we all try them at some point to find out AGAIN why they aren't.

It may be the glucomannan, but could be that stinky bleepin lime (not the fruit) they are made with to keep the shapes. I rinse, soak, rinse, soak, rinse mine before using, then I dry them out in a hot dry skillet and get as much of that liquid out of them (blot with clean tea towel) before using. I noticed I get tummy troubles if I don't do this well enough or skip something, but have no troubles when I go through the whole dang process.

My tuna does have soy. :annoyed: Still going to eat it, but I'll be on the lookout for soy-free tuna from now on.
