Do you guys get tinned salmon(just salmon,with nothing added-like tuna) We have it in Ireland-and it's so much nicer that tuna---granted it has more cals and fat(the good stuff tho) than tuna--but I eat it at home-I prefer it to tuna-and you don't have to mix anything with it. But they don't have it in Germany--nowhere---I miss it....

You guys are awesome. .

I'm feeling better this morning. .I hate to be a downer but there are days when I could just scream! I have two thin sisters and one thin brother and it is so unfair that I ended up with the old lady body! Besides, both sisters are younger and one is all cute and blond and skinny.. i've wished my fat cells on her for years and years. That being said.. I am so going to get down there, too. . and.. I'll stop feeling sorry for myself. .here is my menu so far today: I don't eat ketchup except when I make the BBQ chicken. .haven't had it since my last batch. .

Vitamin: multi, B12, Calcium, Magnesium, Fish Oil and Flax
break: 2 boiled eggs and 1/2 cup lean ground beef. . (Usually only eat 1 egg but I was hungry. .)
black (yes black) Coffee
Water (16 oz before leaving home)
Diet Cherry Pepsi - 1 Can.. (take to work..)
Lunch: Grilled Chicken Breast
Supper: I have a boneless skineless turkey breast in the slow cooker at home as we speak.. (I didn't know they made such a thing.. found it at Aldi last night) it looks fab!

IM, look at the ingredients in your vitamins.... does any of them mention any additives such as cornstarch, sugar, anything that ends is "tose" such as sucralose, fructose, etc.... those are hidden sugars.

If you really can, lay off diet coke... just to eliminate aspartame from your body.

Hi Im2! I have no sisters but have lots of cousins-6 in one house-and we really grew up together---and they are all really tall and skinny-and they could eat what they wanted... I was never like that!! But the one I was closest to (She is def like a sister) went to Australia for a year and gotta say---she did gain--and then when she came back she started going to the gym--but she didn't really lose, she kind bulked up....I was a little happy--gotta Say--baaad me!!! (i do love her to bits)
Then she was working away so I hadn't seen her for a while---so my Mum comes home one day and goes oh I can't believe how much weight M. has lost--she's really skinny and small-her legs .... This was in May sometime....I wanted to scream.........
And then she comes home another day in September and goes a girl who was in school with you has applied to do a course with us...and you have seen how thin she was...she had nothing on her hips...
AAAGH i get it everyone is thinner than me!!!!

I would drop the cherry coke-sorry-and maybe the coffee!(dunno why I'm saying that cos I would literally cry if I had to give up tea!)
Could it be that you're actually eating too little...2 eggs, ground beef. 2 chick breasts......just wondering.....it keeps coming up time and time again...that your body goes into starvation mode if you've been eating low-cal for so long.... I say up the cals and fat for a few days and see.....

I eat turkey all the time but I never really thought about boneless. . duh.. it does make sense.. .I usually just buy the turkey breaks (with bone) and cook it that way.. This bonless one looks to be so much easier . . I love easy. .

OK.. I'll check out the vitamins. .I guess I just never gave much thought to what small trace would be in them Not fair.. so not fair. .they are supposed to be good for you. . I'll check when I get home. .

I've opened my Diet Pepsi already. .I fill a 44 oz insulated mug with ice and pour it over the top = 1 itty, bitty can and stretch it out all day.. I guess I'll have to give that up tomorrow.. :-(

Considering what I used to binge on.. this is sad. .very sad.. not ready to give up coffee yet. .bad habit and I already get terrible migraines so I don't want to add to it by getting a caffiene headache, too

I guess the good news is.. I haven't gained.. so that's something!~

Hi IM!

I just had my second can of tuna with mustard. I am still thinking about your food list. When I first started Stillman's, I ate a lot of eggs.... about 8-10 pieces a day because I was hungry!

Maybe GT is right that you may not be eating enough. Make some hard boiled eggs and snack on those. I'm still thinking.

Hi Dustin,

I was wondering if it's safe to eat so much tuna so often.

Ahhhh! now, I'm becoming aware of mercury in canned tuna. The brand I'm eating is Starkist.... let me see if they have any info on mercury content in their products. I tried different brands of tuna and I seem to like the Starkist the best even though they are a little more expensive than others.

Thanks for bringing this up, feebi! So how are you doing... is today your second day?

i know Im all pro-fat at the moment, but if you up it, like eat the skin, you may not need the flax and magnesium. i like the others advice on upping the calories, unless your already eating like 5 grilled chickens at a time. PS - chicken legs will up the calories pretty fast and keep you happy and full longer. just a thought. I know it goes against everything we believe in but Im starting to think its the key.

Hence, someone said earlier how we always lose when we eat ground beef!

So Al, what is the easiest method to make ground beef in my slow cooker? What kind should I get at the store?

I was at Starkist website. The FDA limit of mercury is 1 ppm (parts per million) a day. The tuna that I eat is chunk light brand by Starkist packed in water and their website states it is .1 ppm per can. So I have to eat many cans to even reach 1 ppm. Starkist states that they test their tuna is tested for mercury content and are around .1 ppm.

Hi Dustin,

Yes today is my second day. So far so good!

Glad that your canned tuna seems to be safe. I used to love tuna too but have switched to salmon since it has lower mercury levels. Too bad salmon is not considered a lean fish (I think) so I don't think I'll be having any during Stillmins. /cry

Hi Phoebe,

That's why I did some research on Starkist. Plus I'm not going to be eating tuna forever! I have a blind date on the 22nd so I'm doing this until I reach T-day and then I will be able to add other foods into my diet. I want to make the best impression on my special lady! New clothes, boots, and new cologne. So that is why I can tolerate eating nothing but tuna because I have something to focus on. I guess you can say I have this mindset and it is good until the 22nd and then I will eat a nice meal during my date. I don't know what my date will think if I ask the waiter/waitress for a plate of tuna and some mustard. Gack!

Hey Phoebe,

I found this for you about salmon.... it is not QWL, but it is from Dr. Stillman

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/st...ion-diets.html

Maybe this may help to motivate you to add some salmon back to your diet if you really like salmon!

I dont worry too much about mercury poisoning. This is exactly what I thought. Kinda like sweet & low. A little wont kill ya.. For now, at least..

I wouldnt recommend ground beef in the slow cooker. It will probably turn into a big meat mooshball in a pool of fat. Even when I used to make chili in the slow cooker, I would brown the meat first. I like it best cooked stove top until the edges are a little crispy. If you get 80/20, you'll have to drain a little fat. To me, 80/20 has more flavor than the leaner stuff, but hey, I'm lovin fat.

I think if I was gonna do any slow cooker recipes with g beef, it would be meatballs. Add your seasonings, roll em up, pop em in, let it go. They'll still be sitting in a pool of fat and you'll have to scrape the yucky stuff off the tops. Actually, they may even come out nice and moist. Yes Guys! Try that!
