Of course, you can say what you believe! Just don't leave.

The Low Carb Recipe Help forum is great as people really stick to low carb recipes to help everyone stay with LCing. You may enjoy visiting there once in awhile to reaffirm this is a LC board!

I would think if I were JUDDing, that on Up days, I would still do low carb to prevent cravings and water gain and preserve that wonderful energy I have gained from low carbing.

Hang in there, Deborah.

P.S. CO tastes and smells like coconut, but I heard the cold expeller pressed CO does not taste or smell like coconut. I have never seen the cold expeller pressed in my store though.

There are some new folks in the Maintainers' Sub-Forum, so I thought I'd revive this thread.

Today for me:

2.5 ounces roast beef w/ 1.5 T. beef fat, chives and white pepper
3 ounces hh yoghurt w/ 1.5 T. marinated cucumbers


3 ounces beef bacon and 7 Brussel sprouts, braised with beef broth, w/ white pepper

Decaf coffee w/ hh (out)

Probably 2 oz. roast beef and marinated squash w/ a bit of hh yoghurt

I keep the following macronutrient amounts these days: 50-60g/PRO: 20-25g/CHO: 80-120g/FAT. If I go over or under one day, I just adjust the next day, and it evens out.

Best wishes to all for delightful, healthy menus.

Good idea to resurrect.

Breakfast: Jen Eloff's low carb English Muffin, toasted, spread with coconut oil and almond butter, low carb apriocot spread

Lunch: Baby kale salad with olive oil, fresh lemon juice, toasted pine nuts, 4 Kalamata olives, 1/2 oz. sheep's milk feta, grilled chicken thigh meat

Dinner: Grilled bacon wrapped shrimp, mashed cauliflower with cheese, bacon and green onions, fresh green beans

Snack: 5 toasted pecans and 5 sugarless chocolate covered macadamia nuts

Lots of green tea all day.

Today:

Summertime drink: Seltzer water w/ a couple of drops of lemon essence (The little bottles in the baking aisle.)


B: HB egg and hh yoghurt, a bit of freshly braised chicken liver
L: More chicken liver
S: Probably roast beef, a few greens and hwc "jello" made from Knox gelatin and saccharin tablets (I use 1/2 c. water and 2 cups hwc for a batch, crushed saccharin tablets as wished. It's easy to make. )

Total amount for day, approx.: 55gPRO: 90gFAT: 20gCHO

How I reckon: One ounce of meat or one egg = 6 grams of PRO
Nine ounces of meat, cream, and eggs = 54gPRO

If anyone tracks calories, CHO and PRO are calculated at 4 Kcals per gram, and FAT at 9 Kcals per gram.

Thus, 75 grams of CHO + PRO = 300 Kcals and 90 grams of FAT is 810, for day's total of 1110 Kcals.

This method of calculation doesn't give the whole picture, but it's all I know to go by. For, example, Barry Groves has written some at his site, Second Opinions, on how fat is metabolized and the 9 Kcals not being accurate, due to the fat being partially used up by being metabolized.

Hope this is of use.

Hmmmm. Forgive me please for bragging... My typical day of maintenance, which I'm proud of as it's satisfying and keeps me below 130 lbs. It took me about 3 years to develop my plan. It runs around 1600 cals, 60-70g each of carbs and protein. I don't track fat g, and don't worry if I eat some extra protein at times.

Breakfast. 2 c coffee with coconut milk, 1 fried egg, sometimes 2-3 pcs bacon, or a one minute muffin made w flax and almond meal and sweetened w 1/4 c mashed ripe banana

Lunch. 3-4 oz meat or fish and a salad with 2 c or so of non-starchy veggies and 1tbs olive oil. I use lots of different veggies for variety from day to day. 2-3 baby carrots as well and about 1/4-1/3 c of fruit....1 5g carb square of chocolate

Dinner. 3-4oz of meat or fish and about 1/2 c each of 2 cooked non-starchy veggies and I also use a lot of variety here. Eggplant, tomatoes, squash, broccoli, onions, mushrooms etc. Sometimes a few sweet potato fries. Occasional wine, esp on weekends.

Snacks. Unsweetened almond milk, 1 oz of nuts, deviled egg or hot dog, additional pc of chocolate....select 1-2 of these as needed...coconut milk frozen bar with fruit to sweeten sometimes, taken from fruit above. Lots of tea with coconut milk and a cup or two of lemon tea. Sometimes a cup of homemade broth.

I try to eat as unprocessed as possible, and use uncured, pastured meat, organic everything, and for fats I use coconut oil, occasionally macadamia nut oil, olive oil on salads, and bacon fat too, if from uncured bacon. I don't avoid fat in meat.

It's easy to do this even with eating out a lot and traveling. It's pretty nutritionally sound and I do take a few supps. as well. I don't have to weigh and measure or count calories now that I'm used to these amounts. If I do go off plan a bit for a few days, getting back on gets me right in no time.

No grains, no dairy or legumes and natural as possible is key for me. I'm pleased I worked out a good plan that works for me. I'm 62 y o and have been hypothyroid for about 17 years. I do an hour or so of light exercise a day. It helps my blood sugar not to eat after dinner, unless it's a little of the almond milk.

I could tweak a little and maybe get below 125lbs and have a little less fat around my waist and back...I keep trying....

Thanks Auntie Em. I think the same about you. I'm always interested in your posts and have learned a lot from them.

Girondet, thanks! Your path and your success are inspiring to me. I always enjoy reading of your steps and accomplishments.

I ate something off-plan this week and seem to have fared well.

Crushed pork rinds, mixed with egg and cream, to the consistency of pancake batter. Fried in pastured butter. Used as "pan bread". I put some cottage cheese on one and found it quite satisfying. I will put this in the food rotation. It seems a treat, after several years of not eating anything that even vaguely resembled bread.

Someone who eats bread or grains might find these things quite unappealing, but they work well for me, for now.

And today:

Roast beef with green onions and marrow broth. Yoghurt made from hh/hwc.
Ground beef with fat, cottage cheese, and marinated cucumbers
Beef bacon and chicken liver, perhaps some cheese or cucumbers.
