Anzhelika, that really looks delicious! I am going to steal your idea and make this for Thursday's dinner...

B: BPC
L: BPC
D: oven dish made by BF. I guess it will be (looking at the ingredients he bought yesterday) with a variety of wild mushrooms, ground beef and pork sausage, some kind of smelly swiss cheese, a bit of tomato and cream, onion, garlic and herbs. I will get cauliflower instead of pasta... He's a sweetie, my BF!!!!

So excited about making sushi now, LOL! But not on the menu today:

B: BPC with a dash or two of organic ceylon cinnamon
L: same as B
D: slow cooked smoked sausage, tomato and bean casserole made in Roemertopf (I think it's like a Dutch oven, but made out of terracotta instead of cast iron) with a side of soured cream with herbs for the fat.

Am experimenting with adding cinnamon in larger than minuscule quantities to my BPC, to see if it does anything for me.

It doesn't look like much but it is so good...... cream of celery soup. According to my calculations, it fits really well into a high fat/low protein food group (low carb of course). For a 1.25 cup serving it is 4g carb, 1g fibre, 18g fat and 3g protein. On the taste scale, it is high and on the satiating scale, it is very high!

Here is the recipe which also rates very easy!

Quote:
Creamy Celery Soup



INGREDIENTS
1 medium or small bunch celery with leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 a small to medium onion (60g)
3 cloves garlic
1/2 tablespoon crushed thyme leaves
1 litre chicken broth (I used a combination of homemade and boxed organic)
1 cup water (or enough to cover)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Salt and coarsely ground black pepper

Chop onion and garlic. Chop celery and including leaves. Heat butter and O.O. over med/low heat and sauté onion and garlic for a few minutes then add celery and thyme. Sauté for a few more minutes. Add broth and water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for another 20 minutes to 1/2 hour or until soft. Remove from heat and using an immersion blender, puree contents. Add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and season with salt and pepper. Voila!!

That sounds tasty, clackley. And since I have those ingredients on hand, I decided to whip it up for supper. I may add minced clams and then it will be clam chowder without the spuds.

For lunch I pan fried up a grill meister cheese that was tasty and ate that with my green salad. Kind of like a fried mozzarella stick.

Cfine, that sounds good. How did it turn out? Good enough to share the recipe?

Clackley's soup recipe was delicious on this blizzardy night. For desert, i made a hot fudge fat bomb with a very small scoop of high fat ice cream! Still feel satisfied.

Short story… I have struggled with nutritional keto in the past. I love the WOE, but come in too high on calories to lose weight without counting. Last fall I did a PSMF a la Lyle McDonald and lost very slowly. Also the lean meat and veggies diet was bland and would be difficult to stick with for the long term. He calls it a "crash diet" but my weight loss was too slow to be rewarding. When I entered my stats into the keto calculator, there was only a slight difference in the two plans (3 small meat servings instead of 4 and about 3 T of added fat a day), so I decided on keto. It has been a great experiment so far. Love the food, love how I'm feeling, still struggling with hunger a little.

Also, I'm trying to have more veggies with a focus on leaves. When I record veggies I come out to about 30-50 g carbs = 15-30 g net carbs. I'm hoping I can treat veggies as "free" and not have to count.

TLDR - Free veggies + measured fat and protein = weight loss for a slow loser?

----------------
BFAST:
about 24 oz coffee
1 oz pepperoni
celery, cucumber, snap peas

LUNCH:
1/2 serving Caveman Keto lazy keto chicken (Lazy Keto Chicken - Caveman Keto)
celery, cucumber, snap peas

DINNER:
4 oz cod fried in salt, pepper and crushed nori with 1 t coconut oil
1 serving creamed spinach (from 500 paleo recipes by Dana Carpender)
1 serving orange pecan rice (from 500 paleo recipe)

SNACK:
kale nuked with spices and broth
hot tea

About 1 T over on the fat macros today, but lots of yummy recipes!

ncbookseller, I think you may have to count your carbs from veggies more closely if you find your weightloss stalls. Otherwise, eat up as long as your macros are good!
Personally I can't eat that many veggies, they would totally stall any weightloss I would have. (And mine is sloooooow as it is) I would definitely exchange the snap peas for something lower in carbs...

My menu today:

B and L: BPC with source naturals pure whey protein
D: lots of fatty ground beef, fried in organic expeller pressed CO, a bit of feta cheese and some grated parmesan. A cup of homemade bone broth. Yesterday was at the very low end of protein for me, so today after yesterday's exercise I am eating at the high end of protein grams for me.

Made a tasty cauliflower and zuchini ham and cheese skillet pizza for supper, fish and cheesy brocoli for lunch and a perfect rib eye steak last night.

Had a sweet chocolate from a box of chocolates and instantly craved more. Clear sign it was not a good choice for me.

After yesterday's protein overload, I thought I'd have gained a bit of weight, but I'm surprised and happy to say I'm holding on to the loss from yesterday!

B and L: BPC
D: something involving eggs, bacon, and cheese with a side of saurkraut

Changed my mind, instead of a BPC for lunch I'm having beef carpaccio with rocket leaves and parmesan shavings and olive oil.

Hi there-

I am super new to this WOE, but not low carb or pale. I am hoping this will really help me stay focused.

I am still figuring it all out so I might not be hitting the right macros yet, but I will keep tinkering and get there

B- 2 VERY Big cups of tea with heavy cream and 3 splenda
L- 3 deli ham rolls with cream cheese, hard boiled egg with mayo, green beans, 1/2 an avocado if needed
S- if needed 2 baby bell cheese
D- beef loin roast, salad, homemade blue cheese dressing

I would love any thoughts or ideas for tweaking!

Thanks so much, so excited to be a part of this community

Welcome! This is a great forum!

I think you might get more feedback if you were to provide more info. Your goals over all are for weight loss or weight loss and health? What are your macro goals. Have you been in ketosis prior to now or are you working to get into that state? Will you be checking blood ketones?

These bits of information help to give a more complete picture in order to give feedback!

Thanks so much!

My goals are overall weight loss- I don't think I have any food sensitivities. I have done a Whole30 and did well, but was having a hard time getting started again so I ended up here.

I would like to lose 30-40lbs because in all honesty once I do, I would like to have our 2nd child. I am petrified of getting pregnant at this weight.

I am adding a decent exercise program in. Weights 3x per week, cardio 2x per week and yoga 4x per week.

I am reading MAria Emmerich's Keto book right now and will be adding supplements in as well.

In the minimal research I have done thus far I am aiming for 1650 calories and 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carbs? Not sure if that is doable or all be right for me.

One thing I know is I am going to try an b patient knowing this is new to me and its going to be some work to figure it all out.

I have been in ketosis before, but not how I want to be now. I won't be testing blood ketones at this point

Thanks so much for any help!

Sounds as if you have done some research. That is great.

I am confused with this comment. Was it a typo? You do understand that with the macros you have laid out, it would be most likely that you would be in ketosis. And this is the aim for people in this thread.

Thanks so much for the help- what I meant is i have done low carb and atkins induction, but probably have not been a true fat burner for long, which is what I want to be now. Yes, I totally get this is the goal and it is my goal too!

thanks again for the help and if this convo is thread jacking I can move it elsewhere too

I eat the same thing everyday without fail. I hate to cook and I am trying to keep it really simple. I even use my microwave to cook my turkey bacon.

brkfst-1 cup black coffee
1 cup decaf peppermint tea
3 slices of turkey bacon
1 tbs mayo-0 carb full fat

lunch- 1 cup black coffee
1 cup decaf peppermint tea
5 slices turkey bacon
1 tbs. mayo-0 carb full fat

dinner-1 standard size can of tuna
1 cup black coffee
3tbs mayo
1 cup of peppermint tea
1 hard boiled egg mixed in tuna

64 ounces of water daily
2 chicken bullion cube.
---------------------------------------------


Do you think there is anything wrong with eating the same type of fat everyday? Meaning mayo. I am trying to get the majority of my calories from the mayo. The bacon only has 30 calories a slice and only 20 of the calories are fat calories. The bacon also has only 2.5 fat grams a slice. Whereas, the mayo has 100 calories a tbs and they are all fat calories. The mayo has 11 grams of fat for one tbs.

Depends on your goals. It appears that you are doing 'Stillmans'. If that is true, you may want to discuss it in that forum. If not, I would say the problem with eating only fat from mayo is that it may be high in omega 6's depending on whether it is a commercially made one or homemade with quality oil?

What is wrong with omega 6's. As far as what plan Im on goes, Im not sure which one it is. BTW didn't I see you over there in Stillmans?
Thanks for the info clackley
