I opened the pantry & found a tin of sardines. Ate them, and the sugar craving quickly disappeared.

Substitute sweets with meats to keep cravings at bay! Hopefully lean meaty sources of protein will satisfy any future cravings I might have.

Good job! You would have been kicking yourself if you gave in.

I don't have a tiny frame, I'd say I'm average. I do have narrow wrists and fingers, but then I have a broad enough back.
The good old Dr Stillman didn't believe that people were 'big-boned', and in a way I'm inclined to believe him. I think a lot of us say that when we're overweight--oh I'd never get down to a size x, I just don't have the bone structure etc. --but I thought that too, i thought a 6-8 would be as far as I could go. I think the more fat that comes off, the more fine-featured a person begins to look.
I will have to take a wait and see approach. I can not in a million years imagine be smaller than an 8. I would be over the moon if I did get smaller. I hope I do...

I did the marinate chik breasts in italian dressing thing then grilled them, they are delish but I'm tasting sugar in the fat free dressing so next time will make my own from scratch.


LC not a long term success????? I'll bet Sugar Free Sheila and GT would disagree........
I know how you feel about the sugar in marinades. My husband had a steak done in a lime cilantro last night. I tasted one bite and could just taste the sugar in it. It is a shame, it was really tasty.

Ja I seriously think a low carb lifestyle is theeeee only way to go for weight and health. Sugar is bad news period. It definitely doesn't have to be as strict as Stillmans-that for life is probably unworkable, but definitely low carb, lean and clean all the way!!

Angel, thanks for the article you posted. I have saved it for reference.

I got on the scale today. I am still 2lbs away from my stats. Maybe I will be there tomorrow. Yes, I plan to get on the scale. I can not stand it. I drive myself nuts not knowing what my weight is day to day.

I am still just enjoying eating turkey burgers for lunch and dinner and a couple pieces of cheddar as a snack. I have not been eating breakfast. I just never like eating in the morning.


I hope everyone had a great weekend and those of you off plan are able to get back on easily.

Had my last turkey burger made with some taco seasoning I made. It was yummy. Thank you to whoever brought it up. It was a wonderful flavor change.

Because protein is such an important nutrient, you might think that more might be better for your health. The fact is that protein, like other nutrients, has a healthy intake range. Eating excess amounts can carry health risks, just like a deficiency. The recommended daily allowance for protein is 56 grams per day for adult men and 46 grams for adult women. If your diet exceeds these figures over the long term, you might notice negative side effects in your skin and eyes, due in part to the way your body metabolizes protein.
Protein Metabolism
Proteins differ chemically from fats and carbohydrates. Metabolism of protein requires different enzymes than the other two. Unlike carbs and fats, protein does not store in the body as protein. Rather, a continuous process of protein breakdown and synthesis occurs. The body replaces cells that die. This process requires protein metabolism to produce replacement cells. Protein metabolism requires more water than fats or carbohydrates do. An excessively high intake of protein, therefore, can lead to dehydration, which will directly affect your skin and eyes.




Here is some information you may find interesting .... My opinion on the subject matter is each individual reacts differently on a high protein diets ....
If in this case it were myself sensitive to high protein, I would eat salmon because it is high in protein and omega 3 s, which is wonderful for our skin .... In your case may it be the sun and surf ? I hope this information was helpful ....

This is so true. Well, even as someone who hasn't dieted before or never really payed attention to the nutrition of what I was eating, I've learned A LOT about food. That's probably one of the best things I'll take away from doing this diet. I don't think I'll ever be able to eat the same way again, and that's probably a very good thing.




That is exactly how I feel .... even on a off plan day , I pay close attention to what kind and how much food I consume ....

Had two off days (Atkins style- ate cheese and bacon and a lil guac with my fajitas) and am gonna go back on hard core this week til Saturday when I go out. Was 148 this saturday so really wanna get below 144 if I can....wish me luck!

I have been burning around 700 or calories more a day at the gym and lifting weights (arms and abs) and I was wondering what other people have been doing with exercise. Does it stall you? Does it help? Should I do less weights? Should I eat more volume if I do it? Anyone know? I know SillyErin and some others mentioned they were big runners.

Yes Catne, I have been hitting the lotion (and body oil) as well. Going from a high fat to low fat diet has been great for my waist and dry skin is a small price to pay. I need to exfoliate totally tonight.

Totally clean day! Canned chicken with curry, canned tuna with Dijon, some eggs & hot sauce. Coffee with sugarfree syrup, 3 diet sodas, a couple sticks of gum, and lots of water. Tomorrow I want to challenge myself & see if I can drink only water and eat meat/eggs without condiments.

For those of you that have been doing Stillman's for awhile and are close to goal, could you share any tips/words of wisdom about your journey? Did you ever stall? Did you have cravings? Did you doubt that you could actually eat this way for weeks and months?

I aspire to lose the 40ish extra lbs I've been carrying around since puberty, and it seems that Stillman's is the only way I'll be able to do that. Any advice/tips from the big losers would be most appreciated!

Oh yeah i have dry skin with Stills. Water, water, water peeps---and I honestly think salmon is a miracle food. There's no comparison with my skin when ai eat it.
If you've heard of Dr.Perricone's diet then you'll know he loves salmon!! His diet is really my maintenance one!! Salmon, turkey, eggs, natural yoghurt, dark leafy veg, berries and sometimes Oatbran!!

I'm a firm believer in exercise too! (no really!) I don't really know if it stalls the numbers on the scale--I think though most people reckon it does a bit--if you use new muscles you'll retain water) but for toning and losing weight 'better' and definitely for maintaining it's non negotiable. Dieting alone will make you 'skinny fat', a smaller version of yourself but with the same lumps and bumps--ok low carb to a much lesser extent.
But if you're exercising, even though you may be stalling on the scale you.ll be burning fat and building muscle.
I do Insanity, bar Method, Callan and Pilates. I workout generally for about 1.5-2 hrs a day most days, though that really depends on how busy I am!! And for me cardio really dadens my appetite-I've read that's not the case for lots of people though!!

Stillmans is a nearly zero carb, protein only plan. The less you eat, the less you vere from the plan, the more you lose--simple. It doesn't matter if you eat 2 turkey burgers, 2 salmon fillets, 2 cans of tuna---it's still Stillmans.
I'm sorry if this is sounding harsh but really you're all making a huge deal of it-cycling 3 days with this and 2 days with the other. You're overthinking it way too much.
Eat protein only and you will lose-fast. You won't go into starvation mode because you are in ketosis-that is fat burning and muscle preserving.
It's not rocket science peeps--and it doesn't need to be tweaked. The science proves it works!!
Just saw this!

We did eat Stillman's all day up until dinner time. We thought about going out to eat, but honestly, it just seems like everytime we go out there's "hidden carbs" and we end up gaining several lbs. for a day or two even when we thought we ate really clean. So we ate at home, and had complete control of every carb we ate. I'd much rather choose to consume carbs like fresh blueberries, than accidentally eat added carbs because the restaurant puts sugar in the salad dressing, or uses sugar-rub for the steak seasoning

Well, the cooking-at-home seemed to be a good plan, because even with all that fat in that loverly-marbeled steak, as well as the large quantity of food, I was only up .6 lbs this morning...way better than I would have done with a restaurant meal. I suspect that .6 will disappear today as I'm back on pure Stillman's today with my HB eggs for breakfast, and chicken breast for lunch.

I was afraid I'd have a hard time going back to Stillman's this morning...I even really debated whether or not to get on the scale this morning. But I just decided it was important to KNOW what eating one high fat Atkins meal would do (total carbs for the day was still under 25 net.) And it was actually a relief to see such a small "gain"...which I'm fairly certain will just be eliminated today, KWIM.

So back to my yummy (ha ha) chicken breast, turkey burgers, lean gr. beef, etc. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Enjoy your foods if you're cycling Atkins...and enjoy your losses if you're sticking with Stillman's.
Oh the hidden carbs thing when you are dining out drives me mad. Its like I ask quite clearly, is there any sugar in this or that and get told no only to find they did not know all the other names that sugar comes under... I really grill the staff/chef when I eat out and am on plan and I really don't care what they think of me. I believe if you are serving food you should absolutely know what is in it... its shocking how many times I have been told by a chef that something absolutely, definitely has no sugar only to find it has fructose, glucose or some other form of sugar. I am sure you all know the different names for sugar but this is helpful.50 Other Names for Sugar

Stats: Reached Goal!
WOE: Stillman's QWL
Start Date: 28th May 2010
Surgery that was planned for tomorrow has been cancelled and will now take place early July. Will have def reached goal by then. Thing is I am not weighing at the moment. I used to every day but I have found that I have way more success just going by my clothes and I suppose in a way that will put me in good stead when I get to maintenance. Anyway, I just bought these really cute super duper skinny cargo style trousers... I can get into them but it is not an attractive sight! I'm guessing when they fit well, I would have made it. GT, I keep checking for the gap... its coming! CC, how ya doing girl? Any great buys lately?

Dieting alone will make you 'skinny fat', a smaller version of yourself but with the same lumps and bumps--ok low carb to a much lesser extent.
But if you're exercising, even though you may be stalling on the scale you.ll be burning fat and building muscle.
I do Insanity, bar Method, Callan and Pilates. I workout generally for about 1.5-2 hrs a day most days, though that really depends on how busy I am!! And for me cardio really dadens my appetite-I've read that's not the case for lots of people though!!
I so have to exercise! I'm just gonna start by walking more and build it from there. I am a bit old fashioned and like step... it really works for me... I might dig out my old videos later... don't think I could face clair N at the moment.

I aspire to lose the 40ish extra lbs I've been carrying around since puberty, and it seems that Stillman's is the only way I'll be able to do that. Any advice/tips from the big losers would be most appreciated!
Gt is your girl...I've lost over 50lb and the only advice I can give is just keep at it... if you go off plan for a day a week a month come back and you WILL get there... just don't give up trying!
