any low carb sample menus out there? I'm running out!!!!

I have been low carbing for about 4weeks now. I have had a few hiccups but have lost nearly 5 inches. Weight loss seems slow to me (i gave up scale bc it could be such a downer for me.) Wondering if their are hidden carbs in my meals and snacks. Just trying to get an idea in what others eat and have been successful with. Thanks so much!

I've got 226 days of food diary in Notepad format, if you want it It's pretty boring, really - here's an example:

1 pint black coffee, no sweeteners

2 fried duck eggs
4 rashers smoked bacon

Shepherd's pie - swede not spuds
Broccoli and green beans

...and that's as detailed as it gets - but you (and anyone else) are welcome to have it!

Well, here's my menu from yesterday. Just a note that my dinner was absolutely fabbbbulous.

B: Bulletproof coffee (coffee, HWC, and 2 tbs coconut oil), eggs and bacon

L: leftover corned beef and low-carb yogurt from Kroger

D: Classico brand poblano chile alfredo sauce, sauted slices of chicken breast, on shiritake noodles, and a romaine salad

PS: I'd check out the "It's ......, what are you eating?" thread each day. Gives a variety of peoples menus.

What sorts of things do you like? That would help us with suggestions.

I tend to keep it pretty simple. Meat either grilled or cooked in coconut oil, roasted or steamed veggies, sliced or mashed avocado -- and every single recipe in the book "Well Fed" (except for the higher-carb ones). I also make a lot of stews and simple green salads. I'm not a big snacker but when I need something I'll have coffee w/cream or a deviled egg.

Adding loads of garlic to everything makes everything tasty.

Now I want to read it. I can't even explain why. I think it's the fried duck eggs.

General outline for a LC meal is "protein + fatty veggie". It's easy to forget how many great foods are out there because they're all basics without brand names.

Protein = eggs, beef, bison, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, fish, shellfish

To keep veggies interesting I like to rotate between different ways to serve them.
• crudité (raw veggies + creamy dips)
• salad w/ homemade dressing
• steamed w/ butter (delicate veggies)
• oven roasted in olive oil (hardy veggies)
• stir fry w/ leftover beef or bacon fat (leaves, mushrooms, broccoli, etc)
• curry w/ coconut milk

I keep it pretty simple: each day, I eat:
Protein: 6 ounces of salmon, chicken or beef; 3 eggs
Dairy: 2-3 oz good, raw milk cheese
Fat: butter, olive oil, coconut milk, or coconut oil to taste
Veggies: 3 cups of veggies (usually 2 cups of leafy greens and 1 cup of other veggies, but I'm flexible).
Other: coffee (w/1 T of heavy cream); herbs, garlic, lemon, lime for flavor.

Today, this translates into:
breakfast: omelette with 3 eggs, 2 oz gruyere cheese, spinach and mushrooms
lunch: more spinach and mushrooms, a little organic salami
dinner: salmon, arugula salad

b: omelette w/veggies and cheese
l: leftover salmon w/salad
d: roast chicken w/greens and more veggies (turn the carcass into broth)

b: omelette
l: green curry chicken soup made w/bone broth, leftover chicken, coconut milk, green curry paste, veggies
d: more green curry chicken soup: my favorite quick meal

You get the idea! I try not to buy any processed foods. Here in Sweden, food is generally very expensive, but I try to buy all organic meats, butter, and dairy products, and it's really not so expensive since I don't buy processed stuff.
