Today I made one using 3/4 C frozen blueberries, 1 cup buttermilk and vanilla syrup and topped it with 1 t chopped nuts.

Sometimes I add 1/3 c. dry milk, too to give me more calcium.
Strawberry, blueberry, banana, and pineapple ones are really my favs.

Just let your imagination be your guide. Hope this helps.

This was helpful! Thanks. Didn't know how much to use of either the buttermilk or yogurt to use. For me, I'd be using the yogurt.

Thanks Maryann, Sharon, Joanne, Mommygates & everyone!!! Now that I reached my final goal it sort of messes up my eating plans as I need to figure out how to incorporate more good fat foods in my diet since it's only been about 15 to 25% of my diet and should be about 40% (from what I read someplace but maybe that's not accurate). What are some healthy fatty foods, or, since the body turns excess carbs into fat would that be just as good? Seems like it'd be better if the body were able to digest the fat from foods eaten rather than the conversion cause maybe if the body doesn't get the fat from eating it goes into starvation mode??

New LOW, but not getting excited here. Why? I'm starting a two day Chicken Fast to kick my bod into action. I had two pieces of chicken last night for dinner, but also with three chunks of fruit. I buy the already cut watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew. There's a Thread on this on the Main Lowcarb Lobby.

I had to give up magnesium for a few days as I took too much. Bod sure lets one know.

Maryann
...So glad to help! Another idea is 1/2 C LowFat Cottage Cheese with peach slices. (canned). KUTGW! Also the fruits I mentioned above. They are soooo low calorie!

Wukong
...Obviously you didn't check out the LGI book I suggested or you'd know what to do. I think most libraries carry it. You can now eat many foods you've sacrificed on your way to your Goal. Your issue is to work it so you can upper your calories without gaining. Keep in mind your metabolism is much higher now than when you started so that'll help in your maintenance too. The only thing I disagree with the book regards butter. It's much healthier than their suggestions. Add butter to your diet and there's your fat. Good Luck!

Have a great rest of the day. Hang in there and stay focused! I see some are inching down!

The Chicken Thread is now under Other Plans. Wish they'd leave a message when they move Threads. Second time I've had to correct myself. Guess I better look first.

Joannew and Maryann...I posted this info on another Thread so thought I'd post it here too as there is so much great info on Body Set Points.

Google "Body Weight Loss Set Points?"

I especially mention Joannew and Maryann - and me because I think this is most likely what we're working with. I've mentioned about our bodies getting used to our new weights before, but now read what the experts say.

BTW, the doctors who wrote the LGI book also mention this as to why weight stalls. The important point is to HANG IN THERE!

Good morning to all.
Congrats, Sharss. Way to go!!. It always so exciting when we see a new low.
Hugs to all that are struggling. I am down a little; but, of course, wish it were faster. But, that is okay since I am eating healthy.
Have a huge chicken breast in the crockpot and am looking forward to having that this evening.
Have a wonderful day,
Hope

Ok, I'm lousy at trying my hand at fasting. Am eating lots of chicken today along with my fruit so will see what happens tomorrow if I can really hang in there. Unfortunately I ate off plan snacks. Still healthy, but could be why I didn't go down again.

Thank you Joannew and Hope!

Hope...Slow works! Check back with Joan's and Wukong's past Postings. Those ounces add up to pounds! Consistency works! I would probably be showing ounces too except my scale only works at half pounds.

Have a great rest of day!

Congrats Sharon on your new low, only 2 more lbs to go right?

No, I didn't read that LGI book , too much going on with me at the moment. Did the book mention anything about how to quickly get the body out of the starvation mode without gaining the weight back? What I'm going to try is to first maintain weight by keeping calories just slightly above where I was losing weight. If my weight stabilizes I'll up the calories by 50 for 3 to 5 days and if I maintain I'll continue the pattern until the weight starts to gain again.

Good morning to all.
Scale was kind to me this morning - 139 - haven't been here since March but want to get to my all time low of 132 that I was in January. My goal is 132 by June 30. Since I am such a slow loser, hopefully I can do this. Since I am 5'1", my goal for now is 125.
Have a wonderful day,
Hope

I'm posting my daily calories now just to get a better idea of any trends. Supposedly my age, height, weight, lifestyle with no gain or loss should be about 2050 cal. per day but that is way off. Best I can tell is that I'm maintaining around 1550 to 1600.

YES! This week looks good. Hope it sticks. However, my two day chicken fast has resulted in - how can I say this - no movement since Wed. Even took magnesium yesterday and nothing. However, I think the problem was lack of fat. Took some CO like in the middle of the night. Ya, had an all-nighter with a three hour nap this morning. Oh, my Fast is over as I was only going to do it for two days. Maybe later if I need another bump.

Hope
... Way to go! Persistence and focus! You got them!

Wukong...I'll double check the book later today, but I doubt anything was said about starvation mode as they don't promote that. However, one thing you can do is just buy foods with higher fat content as in yogurt, cheese, use regular mayonnaise on your sandwiches. I don't think you're a coffee drinker, otherwise could add Coconut Oil (CO) to your coffee or tea. Your issue, at least in my opinion, is your bod is going to try to go back to it's set-point - whatever that is. The good news is that you were consistently losing weight until you used the starvation mode to lose so your set-point may not be that bad to fight off. Good luck. I'll get back about what the book says if anything later. BTW, you have a great plan with an awareness of what you need to do to maintain.

Maryann Hamburger ok. French Fries!

Thanks Joannew! ...May your breakout be soon! I'm really proud of us both as we've hung in there through this!

Don't get me wrong folks, I'm proud of all who have hung in there. I just mention Joan as it seems we got stuck at about the same time and neither of us gave up!

Wukong...No, nothing said about starvation mode of dieting. Did say it takes a year for one's new set point to really stabilize. I've read that in other sources over the years too. I know Jenny Craig goes by that philosophy too as my daughter did that program and if she kept her weight off for a year, she got some money back. JC is nothing but a LGI WOE with specific calories. She did keep her weight off for the year. You might consider buying the book. There are a few more, but this is by the authority author. I looked at her Cook-book from the library and didn't care for it.

Hope...How did you cook your chicken breast in the crockpot? Did you use bought chicken broth? What spices? Sounds

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Sharon I probably used the wrong terminology regarding starvation mode.. meant more where your eating fewer calories than the body requires in order for the body to use up stored fat over a period of time. What I've observed is that while in this mode is that if someone goes over on their calories by splurging a bit that the body will convert the excess calories to fat rather than expel. So, need to maintain a weight long enough for the body to get out of this mode to where it doesn't want to grab all the excess calories and store them. Thanks for your fat additive suggestions! I'm going to research some good fat sources and see if the 40 carbs / 40 fat / 20 protein ratio is ideal or not as I need to get groceries today and figure out what to buy.

Happy Birthday Spoddie!!!

Looks like the 40/40/20 numbers are not the norm or ideal... What I'm already eating is actually ok with just a bit more fat. From the net..

"The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends a daily macronutrient ratio of 10 percent to 35 percent protein, 20 percent to 35 percent fat and 45 percent to 65 percent carbohydrates."

6 High-Fat Foods That Are Good for You

Avocados: Sure, avocados are high in fat -- perhaps that's why they've earned the nickname "butter pears" -- but most of the fat in an avocado is monounsaturated, the heart-healthy kind that actually lowers bad cholesterol. In recent years, the U.S. government has even revised its official nutrition guidelines to urge Americans to eat more avocados. Moderation is still key, since one medium avocado boasts 30 grams of fat. Try substituting avocadoes for butter or cream cheese, or replace the mayo on your sandwich with avocado slices.

Eggs: Eggs are an inexpensive and easy source of protein. People often think eggs whites are a healthier option than whole eggs because they contain less fat, and while it's true that the egg yolk contains some fat, it's also packed with important nutrients. One whole egg contains 5 grams of fat, but only 1.5 grams are saturated. Whole eggs are also a good source of choline (one egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline), an important B vitamin that helps regulate the brain, nervous system and cardiovascular system. And while there's a lot of buzz about the cholesterol in eggs, research has linked moderate egg consumption to improved heart health.

Olive Oil: Olive oil is commonly used in the Mediterranean diet (one of the most recommended for a healthy lifestyle), and we've all heard that olive oil reduces the risk of heart disease, blood pressure and certain types of cancer. However, it still packs 100 calories per tablespoon, so moderation is important if you're watching your weight. A recent study published in Neurology found that cooking with heart-healthy olive oil and using it for salad dressing may cut stroke risk.

Nuts: Your best bets for nutrition are almonds, walnuts and pistachios. Almonds are the richest in vitamin E; walnuts contain a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid; and pistachios have lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids important for eye health. Research shows nut eaters are generally thinner, less likely to develop type 2 diabetes and have a reduced risk of heart disease to boot. In terms of getting the most from your snack, pistachios win hands down. One of the lowest-fat nuts, you get 49 pistachios in a 1-ounce serving, compared to 23 almonds or 14 walnut halves.

Nut Butter: Nut butters are another source of healthy fats, and peanut butter is just the beginning -- try almond or cashew butter if you're feeling adventurous. All of these butters boost protein and fiber intake. Just be forewarned, some are high in added sugars. Choose all-natural nut butters with as few ingredients as possible. Bannan likes almond butter jars that contain "dry roasted almonds" as the sole ingredients. Some may also contain sea salt.

Fatty Fish: The term "fatty fish" may sound unappealing, but actually, these are the healthiest and most delicious foods from the sea. Oily fish such as salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel and trout are full of omega-3 fatty acids -- good fats, unlike the bad saturated fat you find in most meats. According to the American Heart Association, people should eat at least two servings weekly of lake herring, lake trout, mackerel, salmon, sardines or tuna for the healthy omega-3 fats they contain.

JoannewIsn't that a new LOW? Great pep talk! Thanks!

Maryann...You didn't really gain 5# last week. That's all water weight. Hope you have a great week getting rid of it.

Wukong...Let's see. At one time the govt. agency was telling us how bad eggs were for us. Now the govt. has been on a "get rid of meat" agenda so they can push grains coming from other countries. Thanks, but no thanks in giving any info from the govt or any of it's agencies. The govt is so great with it's information we have ended up with an over-weight population with a huge population with heart disease, diabetics, and an epidemic of autism children. If you choose to follow their pyramid of foods so be it, but for me no thanks! All govt agencies are backed with a political agenda.

All have a great rest of day!

Kind of lazy in calorie tracking and it shows with a 2lb overnight gain.
