I use Kosher salt with no issue. I got my info from Atkins 1972 book and swear by my results. I haven't used table salt in years except if I am at a restaurant.

JB--I'm so impressed that you have your 6-year-old off of sugar. I think it is harder to get kids OFF than to never start them in the first place. My kids don't eat a horrible diet by most people's standards...but it is definitely high carb. They both detest meat/chicken/fish...my husband is an "all things in moderation" kind of person--he doesn't have a weight issue at all. I am never going to convert any of them...

As for my appointment--the doc doesn't see anything "wrong" with dropping 60 points (glucose) in an hour...or going up 60 and down 60 in the same hour...so I'm back to just figuring things out on my own. I had a bad day with food yesterday, but I am on track today. Thanks for asking.

Hope the "sickies" are feeling better today!

Hi guys!!

JB it is great you got your child off sugar and are teaching him at a young age. Our youngest grandson (my daughter's son) spent alot of time with us when he was a toddler and I always called him my low carb baby. He LOVES steak, shrimp, broccoli, spinach, olives, cheese...you get the picture. He can eat pistachios until they are coming out his ears! lol. My son's kids are sugar and carboholics but that is finally changing. Many people don't understand how they are poisoning their children. Its amazing how we have been brainwashed into thinking sugar and grains are healthy. Holy cow!

I cooked a bunch of crab legs for supper and they were delish with lots of butter. While I was eating them I kept thinking how grateful I am for not having to ration any thing out. I ate until I was full. Period. The VLC and IF is working so well for me. I was down another 2 pounds this morning so thats a total of 18 since Christmas day. YAY me! (I was back up to 188 Christmas day and am down to 170 now)

Lisa, thanks for Dr. Carlson's youtube. I've been reading over his website and blogs. Good stuff. Did you run across bacon is a superfood? its pretty good too.

gettingwell hope today was a good day for you.

Loowee--there is a neanderthin list site that has some pretty good reading. Like I said, that whole paleo thing is very interesting and there are several schools of thought about the diets of hunter gatherers. Do you do any of the raw meat? I know its supposed to be optimal nutrition wise, but I just don't think I could ever go to that level. Seems like lots of folks out there do though.

See you all later....
Minnas, where the heck are you? Hope you will email me.

Teri,

You are so welcome. I Dr. Carlson!

My DH has high cholesterol by the ADA standards and was quite skeptical of Atkins and saturated fat. He always ate LC but was skeered to death of fat. Too bad, I cook and he loves my food so he was having all the fat I could force in him.

He sat down and watched the entire hour of Dr. Carlson's vids and it helped him immensely. His HDL and Trigs are perfect! So now it's he reaching for the bacon!

Bacon is the best food ever~ I will eat it all day long if you let me. I am so poor these days I actually do eat it all day long!

Raw meat can be very yummy. I love my steak mooing.

I don't eat it raw, but I do eat it a lot more rare than I used to, and can eat it more rare than I usually like all the time. I don't see enough benefit in eating it raw to miss out on the savory flavor of cooked meat and fat.

I eat bacon almost every day and always cook enough to last beyond the current meal. I count it as my meal, but will stretch it out for half the day.

Someone on the PaNu site brought up the question about leptin levels being low and how it might correlate to unsated hunger. I've read a little about this but don't know too much about it. Has anyone run across any good studies about leptin levels? I'm working a strectch of 12 hour shifts this weekend and havent had time to look around much.

Another good blog I found is called a spark of reason. Lots of interesting reading. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hi all!! I love this thread. I can not say that I have changed my diet to paleo, or even low carb for that matter, but I am doing a whole TON of reading. I love Mark Sisson's site, and Dr. Harris' site too (thanks Teri F for telling me about Dr. Harris! ) I have a lot of issues with binge eating and depression (what came first, the chicken or the egg? ) so I am really struggling with even the thought of eating right now. I know that VLC is very helpful in preventing binge eating episodes (I've had great experience with it before). Anyway, as I try to "find myself" so to speak, I hope you'll let me hang out in this thread as it is so interesting to hear about your experiences!!

And Teri F-I can't wait to hear what Joy Bauer wrote to you!! When are you coming back?

I love this thread. I have been on and off the low carb wagon for several year. I have no willpower:blush: but this time around I am doing Atkins 72 and must say I have never felt so good. I am doing the recommended vitamins and it's VLC. I can walk by the goodies now and not think twice! When I would do general low carb I would still be "tired" or dragging. Not now. Anyways you guys are great and thanks for all the info and websites-LOTS TO LEARN.

Hi Chelle and welcome to our "party". There is some excellent info on the PaNu website, and links to other great sites. Keep us posted on your progress.

I haven't been updating a whole lot in here, but mostly because I felt like utter shitake. Today's my first day on hormones and I feel a difference. I didn't expect to feel good so quickly and have to keep wondering if it's real or not - then tell myself that it doesn't matter - don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

While we were traveling, we made some off plan choices. Intentionally - we were wondering if these old favorites would taste the same. Indulged in our curiosity and, like usual, discovered that no, in fact, these things no longer hold any appeal to us. We ate a Popeye's - the fast food my DH grew up on. Not only did it not hold any appeal for us, but I have a raging sinus headache today. If there was any question whatsoever that it was worth it, that question's been answered loud and clear. LOL My body revolts when I eat anything out of the norm. Leaves me wondering if I should get tested for Celiac, just to know.

Anyway, now that I'm on hormones I have a "bring it on" mentality with weight loss. My Doctor said that if I don't see improvement in the weight loss department, she'll prescribe something for me at my next appointment (metformin, perhaps? I didn't ask). I'm hoping to have lost a decent amount of weight before I see her again, though.

Life is good. And I thank God for the suggestions of Dr. Harris and how easily laid out his "plan" is.

This is how I'm eating right now. I'm working with a trainer, and I've done really well over my first fifteen weeks. But I hit a plateau, so I have eliminated dairy, grains and caffeine from my diet this week. Anyway, he changes my plan weekly...and it may get changed again on Wednesday, but for now, I'd like to hang out here. I really like this way of eating.

Someone was asking for menus...I tend to keep my eating pretty simple, but I eat things like:

breakfast: two scrambled eggs, grapefruit
snack: apple, pistachios
lunch: spinach salad with baked chicken, oil/vinegar dressing
snack: celery, peanut butter
dinner: salmon, salad with oil/vinegar dressing
snack: shrimp

Hi All...

Just finished reading this thread and enjoyed all the insight!

I have been eating VLC for years (on and off). Stillmans has been "my friend" for the past year, but I have been stalled for about 2 months now. Thinking perhaps the low carb/low fat is not working any more?

We are also trying to get pregnant and my mother is constantly on my case about my LC lifestyle. She is certain it is not an appropriate way to eat while pregnant...

I have been doing a lot of reading on Paleo nutrition and think it is awesome. Mainly, I would love to get my children eating this way. They are 5 and 3 and are not healthy eaters. :blush: My 5 year old deals with sinus and asthma issues at least once/month and I have a feeling a lot of it has to do with his diet.

Anyhow, that is just a bit of rambling about me. Look forward to spending more time here. Today I will be grocery shopping Paleo-style

I am reading the Primal Blueprint and enjoying it quite a bit. I am seeing where this type of eating can be very beneficial towards helping me get to my body's lean weight. Right now, I am at about 24% body fat and my ultimate goal is 19%. Once I'm there, I am going to do whatever it takes to maintain.

In maintenance, I would love to be able to add red wine, dark chocolate, and some dairy, like greek yogurt. I'm fine giving up grains...I've never liked bread, anyway.

I was just reading the food lists in Primal Blueprint and he does not suggest peanut butter. I will switch to almond butter when I go to the store tomorrow.

I don't have much of an appetite today! And I think I'm over my caffeine withdrawal, yay!

I'm reading Primal Blueprint too, but slowly. It's easy enough to read, I just have it by my bed and seem to fall asleep relatively easy these days

Lots of stuff I already know, but mixed with enough research to give it a new twist or flavor.

Today I've had

scrambled eggs in olive oil
chicken and spices "fried" in coconut oil over cucumbers with balsamic vinegrette dressing
dinner will be baked chicken drumsticks with roasted asparagus

I was going to buy almond butter at the store, but the only kind they had was salted and I'm on limited salt this week, per my trainer.

I'm on a rest week from the gym, so we went bowling today (for "play" per primal blueprint) and now we are going to go for a walk at the park. Just a gentle walk, nothing that would count as "cardio."

Daisy, I highly recommend Primal Blueprint. I'm going to tell my trainer I want to keep eating this way for the rest of my program. When I reach my coveted 19% body fat, I am going to see if I can add in red wine, dark chocolate, and dairy in the form of greek yogurt and a small amount of cheese. I can see living like this forever.
