CC: You crack me up! The 51 yr. old contrasts.


For meatloaf I mix the ground beef with eggs and dry lipton onion soup mix and any other seasonings you like. I form mine into a loaf that looks like a loaf of bread and cook it on 375 for an hour in a 9 x 13 baking dish. If you want to add a little something to hold it together, try using some oat bran. Using your judgement, add a little water if it seems dry but it shouldn't with the eggs.

BTW: I don't use a loaf pan because there is no where for the fat to flow away from the meatloaf. In a 9 x 13 you have plenty of room and can drain off the extra fat after cooking.

thx Yam, the Nigella comparison arrived in my inbox and I simply could not help myself............the irony here being that I was sucked into the vegan vacuum for three years prior to you all rescuing me........


so I did it the CC way............winged it! .


1 lb. or so ground beef
1 tbsp. garlic powder
3 tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. ground dry mustard
1 tsp. celery seed
1 tbsp. Worcestersire 'that there' sauce
3 tbsp lo sugar catsup
3/4 c. flax meal

in the oven she bakes, results later.


just saw on French Food at Home (filmed in Canada {{{{MAR}}}} ) grilled pork chop with red onion confit YUMM

Sounds so yum, CC!! My opinion is that you really can't mess up meatloaf! Just throw in all the stuff you love along with the meat and it always comes out great.

I have some ground turkey and was toying with the idea of making a turkey loaf for dinner. I'm going to add some EVOO to keep it moist.

Thanks everyone for all the welcomes!
Butterfly: I understand what you're saying. Eventually when I dropped from 139 to 107 last time, it wasn't a smooth or linear loss at all. The 1st 10 lbs dropped very easily, but after that, I had a stall for a few days, so I did a refeed, which seemed to work really well. After losing approx. 20 lbs, I hit another stall, and in response tried the atkins fat fast, which is really hard to do with other ppl around (because you only eat fats), but it broke my stall immediately and put me back to losing fast again, until I lost to 107, and after going back to Stillman's I did not lose anymore.
Yam-Yam: I really like your suggestions to make this way of eating more sustainable. I'll probably your advice a try after I lose my extra weight.

Several days ago as I left a meeting at our church, I desperately gave myself a personal pat down.

I was looking for my car keys. They were not in my pockets.

A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.

Suddenly I realized, I must have left them in the car.

Frantically, I headed for the parking lot. My wife, Diane, has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.

My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them.

Her theory is that the car will be stolen.

As I burst through the doors of the church, I came to a terrifying conclusion.

Her theory was right. The parking lot was empty. I immediately called the police.
I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered. I always call her "honey" in times like these.
"I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen."

There was a period of silence.

I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard Diane's voice.

"Ken" she barked, "I dropped you off!"

Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me.”

Diane retorted, "I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car."

Good morning! Vacation is almost upon me! Yeah! It starts with the end of a meeting tomorrow night. Then I'll read the Dukan Diet. And until I come back, I'll do my best. And on that note - I've got to eat my breakfast steak!

Hi Pure Kitten! I really lost with Stillmans QWL plus a small amount of low carb veg, so yeah probably more Dukan. I don't eat cheese though. Every so often I dropped the veg. I always did low fat though-apart from salmon-which at the beginning I pretty much ate every day. (I'm eating practically every day now too!)
I have never really gained much weight back. Maybe once in a while like vacation or Christmas about 5-6lbs-that would include water weight and it comes off pretty quickly. Nothing that would make me take a different clothing size or anything. If I workout a lot I'm much harder and bonier, and when I don't work out for a few weeks I would be 'softer'-less ab definition!
I think the reason I haven't gained back is because I really believe this is a lifestyle. I think it's a very healthy way to eat. I like the way I feel when I eat like this. Sure I still have cravings(I'm never gonna lose those, I like chocolate and cookies, even though I know they have no nutritional value whatsoever.)
I think the 'trick' is never ever to say well I've blown it anyway with the cookie or bread or whatever so I might as well eat more. If you do that you are doomed to put on the weight back. The longer you go off plan the harder it is to get back.
I suppose I manage not to put it back on because my breakfast is always pretty low carb-usually an egg white omelette with maybe flakes of leftover salmon, dinner is usually chicken/turkey or salmon with brocoli or caulifower or a tuna salad. And then if I am out with girlfriends or sonething then I might have a latte or a bread rolll or something. That's definitely not every day at all, and I only eat bread because it's not a problem food for me-I can take it or leave it.yet it's kind of a comfort food. My rule is to only have low carb stuff at home.
Other than that I've got no tips for maintaining. I know it's probably going to be a lifelong battle. I just know that I like being this slim more than anything I could possibly eat. I love that I can pretty much wear what I want. So I know in my heart that I'll never put the weight back on. I used to say I promise myself I'll never put it on, or if it kills me I'll never put it on, but now I just know I won't.
But you must remember I came fron a very different weight place than you, so it would take a lot for me to put it all back on. Don't beat yourself up about it. You've learnt now that you can't go bact to eating what you want. So just take this knowledge and continue on your healthy journey!

Oh everyone hates Gillian McKeith!! And if that's what eating her stuff does to you-then I'll pass thanks!! We love Nigella!! Can you believe she's 50?????? Gillian was in I'm a celeb, get me out of here--the jungle thing--do you have it?? Anyway she said she thought she was pregnant!!!!!! Oooooh the tabloids had a field day!!!!!
The only good thing about her in fairness though is that she's an advocate of eating non processed food. And in her programme she used to put out all the food soneone had eaten in a week---and it was always white!!! (bread, fries, potato chips etc). Then she'd show her diet and it would be a colourful table full of veg. And because of her showing what went into a hotdog(that inage will stay with me forever unfortunately!!!) I have never eaten one sibce--and never will.
She's still annoying though!! Like oooh I'd never ever put that rubbish in my body!!!

A question--cos both Pure Kitten and Butterfly have mentiond it and I have always wondered it too--it would be my only slight doubt about low carb.
Do you think eating very low carb for a very long time makes you more insulin resistant?? As in because your insulin doesn't have to work and gets used to no sugar, so when you eat carbs, do you get a much higher insukin response? Like 20 grm of carbs is like a rush of 100grms?
I hope I make sense!! I've tried to google to get the answer before but hanpven't had much look. I do wonder about it. And especiakkybecause diabetes runs in my family.

GT, I personally do think that low carb does make you more sensitive to insulin, because the first time I gained weight, it took me 3 years to gain 40 lbs. I ate a lot of carbs for most of my life, so I was pretty used to a high carb intake, but only really started gaining extra weight due to emotional eating for the last 3 yrs.
However, after living without any carbs for 3 months, it took me only another 4 months to put the 30 lbs back. But surprisingly I'm not upset because I know I've learned my lesson this time and am really looking forward to getting all this extra weight off.
I also looked online at the atkins maintenance forums, and saw that most of those maintaining were eating around 50-100 carbs a day with exercise, so those that maintain do not get to go back to eating whatever we want!
But its okay because eating treats like dessert are really a fleeting moment, while intangible qualities such as confidence last all day long right? Looking back, I felt so proud of myself for sticking to the diet just half a year ago. And I actually lost weight, while before on calorie counting diets, I would get so tired of logging everything that I'd quit really quickly.

You gain weight quickly after a low cal diet too though-thats probably why you gained it so quickly. Your body is in shock from the low cals, so it's better at processing them. So for example, for every 100 cals you eat, your body takes 120. It's for that reason that the bounce is so rapid. The longer you maintain the less efficient your body becomes at getting those cals.
Honestly--and I know it sometimes sounds as though we're plugging this book--but read Dukan. It is the best explaination there is for why people regain so much weight after being on a diet. He also gives strategies for slowly going back to a more sustainable woe.....basically low carb, healthy unprocessed stuff with 2 treats thrown in every week, and a pure protein day once a week. But he introduces these things like a small serving of fruit very slowly----the more weight you've lost, or the longer you've been dieting, the slower things are introduced.
