Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened at room temperature or melted slightly in the microwave at lowest setting
1 1/2 cups almond flour or almond meal (almond flour gives a more finely-textured cookie)
3/4 cup granular Splenda (or sugar if you don't care about having low-sugar cookies)
1/4 cup brown sugar (or use 1/4 cup more granular Splenda, or any proportions of sugar/Splenda/brown sugar you prefer to make 1 cup total sweetener)
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar

for rolling cookies:
2 T granular Splenda
2 tsp. brown sugar
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Instructions:
Sit out butter to soften at room temperature (or if you're impatient like I am, use the microwave on lowest setting to soften/melt the butter).

In mixing bowl, combine the butter, 3/4 cup almond flour, 3/4 cup Splenda, 1/4 cup brown sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda, and cream of tartar and blend well with mixer until well combined. Beat in the other 3/4 cup of almond flour, until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. (The mixture will be stiff.)

Scrape the beaters to remove all the dough, then cover bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and chill one hour or longer. (I've gotten distracted and chilled it for nearly 3 hours, which didn't seem to matter.)

When you're ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350F/175C. Combine 2 T Splenda, 2 tsp. brown sugar, and cinnamon in small dish.

Scoop out heaping teaspoons of dough, and roll dough into balls about 1 inch across. Roll each ball in the Splenda/brown sugar/cinnamon mixture and put on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. (I lined the cookie sheet with parchment paper, but I don't think it's essential.)

For flatter/crisper cookies, smash each one down with your fingers, keeping them about 1/4 inch thick. You can also bake them without smashing for a more domed-shaped cookie. Bake cookies about 14-16 minutes, until they're starting to brown and are slightly crisp-feeling to the touch.

Remove cookies to a rack and let cool 20-30 minutes before serving. (They're fairly crumbly when they're hot but they stay together well once they're cool.) These cookies will keep for several days in a plastic container if you can manage to keep them around that long.

(You can put the ingredients into CalorieCount to get nutrition facts because it wasn't listed in the recipe)


Enchilada bake:
1lb ground beef
1/4 cup enchilada sauce
1/4 cup salsa
1 tbsp onion powder, or 1/3 cup onion, diced
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
1 small can chopped green chilis, divided
1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced
1 cup cheese, divided

Oopsie bread batter:
3 eggs
3 oz cream cheese
1/8 tsp Cream of Tartar
2 to 3 Tbsp Flaxseed meal (or unflavored whey protein powder)
2 tsp sugar equivalent substitute
Green chilis
Cheese

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Cook ground beef. Add seasonings, enchilada sauce, salsa, half a can of green chili, and 1/2 cup cheese. Set aside.

Make Oopsie bread by separating the egg yolks from the whites. Whip the whites with the tartar until stiff peaks form. Combine the yolks with the cream cheese, flaxseed meal/protein powder, sweetener and the rest of the green chili’s and cheese.

Slowly fold the yolk mixture with the whites. Take the ground beef mixture and add to a 8×8 baking dish. Pour the Oopsie batter on top, spreading evenly. You can even add more cheese, chilis and some black olives on top of the batter.

Bake at 300 for 30 to 40 minutes. The top will be slightly brown.

Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

Serving size: 2 8X8″ bakes or 1 bake and a small pan of bread. Just divide the batter in half. Makes 12 servings.

You have done amazing. Do you have any before picks you can look at? I have heard it is important to take some so you can look back and see the difference.

No problem, I hope you enjoy them when you're done with strict Stills! And I love cooking! I didnt cook much before starting Stills, especially by myself. Now I spend the majority of my time on the internet finding delicious low carb recipes, especially for thIngs I used to enjoy before dieting. Seriously, that's like all I do now haha! You'd think looking at so much food porn would trigger a binge but it hasn't yet for me.

Down 3.4 lbs. for the week!

So now I won't feel bad at all about having my mocktails & Atkins-legal picnic foods on July 3rd & 4th.

Probably won't be on tomorrow or Wednesday...have lots of prep & cleaning to do tomorrow during the day & then my company all arrives for dinner tomorrow night...staying through the 4th.

Hope everyone has a great holiday
Awesome Cathy !!!! I wish you a wonderful holiday too .... And Enjoy those tasty low carb yummies you are preparing

I want to lose about 3 lbs this week, which is totally realistic for Stillmans.

I have been having a glass of low cal wine every night so far, so obviously that has to go for now, just to see what happens.

I also have been putting regular cream in my coffee, so I am going to change to fat free, sugar free cream.

The last time I did Stillmans I went longer than this before I stalled so I am going to make sure that I am really doing this the right way, I think I was much more strict last go round!

I do feel my energy coming back, my clothes are fitting better and my stomach is actually getting back to flat.
I do my measurements as well as my weight check so I can gain some confidence from the loss in inches and not just the actual number on the scale.
I have been the same weight for about 4 days and I am eager to make some movement on the scale.

So I will truly cut out the extra mess and we will see what I look like.

-3 lbs by Friday is my goal. No cheating , not even on July 4th.

My 30th birthday is August 6th and I am having a pool/resort party and I want to look my very best.

Go Stillmans!

I hope everyone is having a great week

-Tanya
Been there , I stalled and I used the Silly Erin's Turkey meal plan it works like a charm ....

Happy early july 4th to all my american friends!
I will be joining you on the 5th strict Stillman's non stop for a month ....

I do not feel like typing it all out again! lol

akagal20 I think if you get a bit stricter you will get results.

healthy for life That salt will get your every time. Drink lots of water!

catne You are an inspiration. Way to go with the loss while traveling/vacation. Someday I will have the will power to do that!

zulloc We have 2 dogs. A 1 year old lab mix (Hulk) we got at 6 weeks of age and a American pit terrier that is 6 months (Gumbo). We got him at 11 weeks. Both are the sweetest dogs. I am a recent dog lover. I never wanted one despite my husband bugging me all the time. I made him wait 8 years. Now I am an enthusiast and can not imagine life without them.. Husband says I am a freak now.

Awwww I love your babies !!!! I am so happy your almost there * lbs will fly right off you .... Good luck and enjoy the holiday !!!!

I bet you look fine .... I hate seeing pretty girls or cute guys get down on themselves about their looks. It is mostly woman out spoken about themselves lol .... You look at them and think have you looked in the mirror ???? you look fine !!!! I get down myself too .... I have a terrible body image .... So I truly can relate

I do, and there is a huge difference! I don't even recognize my "before" body...I can't believe I actually looked like that. But it's much different when I look in the mirror... Of course, we will always be more critical of ourselves than other people will be of us. We are the ones that see all the flaws that other people miss. But still, even knowing that, I don't feel like its good enough quite yet. I wanted to be at least a size 8, hoped for a size 6 but that would probably take at least another 10 lbs. I just hope I can get to a point where I'm happy with it instead of just "okay", you know?

I totally get what you are saying. I know it is easy to say I will be so happy when I get to 150. In reality, I know I am going to be disappointed in many area of my body. I hope I will always remember where I started.

Down another pound. woo! Today I plan to eat a big turkey burger before we go to the county party. Maybe then I won't be as tempted to go off. There is suppose to be food booths everywhere with the areas best places.

In the past I would have went ahead and gone off because it was a holiday. Not this time. I promised myself I was on till the 14th and I plan to keep that promise.

Everyone have a great day!

When you get to 150 though, that's going to be a HUGE accomplishment! I mean, granted, getting down to where you are now is already really great. But losing almost 100 lbs? Very, very few people can actually have the drive and motivation to do that. You are going to be an entirely new person, so I hope you don't forget where you started either because that is truly inspirational! And I'm sure you can do it. Your stats are similar to my boyfriends, actually. He used to be over 300 lbs and then he lost about 70 with Herbal Life shakes, and I met him after that. Then he gained back to about 250 over the past year and a half we were together. But after going low carb with me, now he's down to 208 I think he said the other day. Kinda jealous, honestly...he's lost 10 more lbs than me in the same amount of time and he's cheated quite a bit! I think his goal is around 180 or so that he wants to get to by the end of the year. But anyway, point is, keep up the amazing work and there is no way you're NOT going to love yourself after everything you've been through! That's a phenomenal change you're going to make in yourself.

Hey every 1!

I haven't been on here in quite sometime I was having major binge eating issues so I just felt like I needed to relax a bit and give myself time.

Needless to say I have been binge free for almost 2 months and have cut out my major over eating food which was peanut butter for a month now and things have been getting better!

I was wondering if I could join u all (official start for me would be tomorrow 7/5 I have a lot of muscle and workou about 2 hours a day but I have fat covering it all! So my goal is to drop about 30 pounds and lean out truth is I will be going be inches and will take measurements tonight

I hope it's not too late to join I also monitor my calorie in take I feel like on stillmans I am full at like 1,000 calories with all the chicken and turkey and eggs

I wish u all success so let it burn!!

Danielle

Thank you so much for the encouraging words. I will do more personal replies in the morning.

I did not eat anything at the county shindig. I drank water. I had a big turkey burger with a little bacon sprinkled on it and melted cheddar right before I left. Definitely higher fat and cals but it killed any desire to go off plan.

"See" you guys in the morning

HI LADIES!

Yea! There are so many new faces here! I'm so excited to see everyone. Isn't this diet AMAZING! For those who don't know me, my name is Beth, these wonderful woman helped me so much last yr. I lost all my wt in a MONTH! Lightning fast. I was a low carber for many yrs. mostly Atkins but once I got the knowledge of Stills I was on fire.

I'd love to post a few pics, but I don't know how to do that?! Can someone walk me through this process.

I'm back in the saddle with you all as I did an experiment. A VERY, VERY BAD ONE AT THAT! ARGH! Has anyone heard of "The Weigh Down Diet" by chance? Well, for some reason, my body HATED IT and I've gained probably 15 or so in such a short time. I did it like 3 weeks and actually gained! OH WELL, Stills is there to rescue us right?

I hope Al comes back. So nice to see you GT, and AKAGal! How's married life.

Hugs to you all and let's gettr done!

Beth

mornin The scale was the same today. I walked in 100 degree weather for 5 hours yesterday. I tend to not lose if I I get over heated. I also got a broken 6 hours of sleep. My dang weather alert radio kept going off.

I plan to be a lazy bum today.

Needless to say I have been binge free for almost 2 months and have cut out my major over eating food which was peanut butter for a month now and things have been getting better!

I was wondering if I could join u all (official start for me would be tomorrow 7/5 I have a lot of muscle and workou about 2 hours a day but I have fat covering it all! So my goal is to drop about 30 pounds and lean out truth is I will be going be inches and will take measurements tonight

I hope it's not too late to join I also monitor my calorie in take I feel like on stillmans I am full at like 1,000 calories with all the chicken and turkey and eggs

I wish u all success so let it burn!!

Danielle
Welcome back!

I lost all my wt in a MONTH! Lightning fast. I was a low carber for many yrs. mostly Atkins but once I got the knowledge of Stills I was on fire.

I'd love to post a few pics, but I don't know how to do that?! Can someone walk me through this process.

I'm back in the saddle with you all as I did an experiment. A VERY, VERY BAD ONE AT THAT! ARGH! Has anyone heard of "The Weigh Down Diet" by chance? Well, for some reason, my body HATED IT and I've gained probably 15 or so in such a short time. I did it like 3 weeks and actually gained! OH WELL, Stills is there to rescue us right?

I hope Al comes back. So nice to see you GT, and AKAGal! How's married life.

Hugs to you all and let's gettr done!

Beth
Welcome back to you to!

Right now I am going by pounds. I will probably go by inches when I am closer to goal and not losing as fast.

Happy day-after-the-4th to all. Not feeling all that well today...doc put me on an additional inhaler med on Monday and I think I'm not tolerating the side effects too well...will be calling him later today about this med.

We had lots of great Atkins-legal food--but high fat & much higher calories than Stillmans. Low carb, but not nearly as low as Stillman's either. Did not eat any carbage, though I was surrounded with yummies like ice-cream-pie, chips & homemade salsa bean dip...cookies...you get the picture. We had our own LC treats to get us through!

Bad news is I was up 3 lbs today but I know I didn't eat 10,500 extra calories in the last 36 hours so it's undoubtedly water gain that will quickly disappear

Back on straight Stillman's today, already had my HB egg & low fat turkey sausage patty for breakfast. Back to my black coffee (really enjoyed the HW Cream yesterday) ...still have a few houseguests so I'm sending all the leftover carbage & high fat food home with them. Clean out the excess so it's not around to tempt me.

Looking forward to getting back into the losing game!

Congrats to all who stayed the same or lost over the holiday!

I did not eat anything at the county shindig. I drank water. I had a big turkey burger with a little bacon sprinkled on it and melted cheddar right before I left. Definitely higher fat and cals but it killed any desire to go off plan.

"See" you guys in the morning
Great Job !!!! WTG !!!! those 8 pounds will be gone fast !!!!

Beth,
Since LCF doesn't provide the ability to upload your pictures directly to the site for usage in your posts, you will have to use a third party photo hosting service such as Photobucket (which is free) to store your pictures online and make them accessible to LCF. Sign up for an account on Photobucket, and follow the instructions there to upload your photo. On the site, you will be provided with a URL, or link, to your photo that may then be used to access the photo. It will look just like a standard web address, i.e. "http://www.photosharingservice.com/yourphoto.jpg" (the link will be different depending on the specific sharing service you are using). You must then copy the link, and use the "insert image" button at the top of the LCF posting tool, where you will be able to place the link for inclusion in your post. I hope this was helpful ....

I really over indulged with full carbs on my holiday to NYC .... I had coffees with cream and sugar.... I love it sweet and I miss my coffee like that lol I ate 3 sausage, pepper and onion slices .... a Bud light with them .... a bag of potato chips, a chocolate dipped vanilla cone and more yummies .... I enjoyed the next few days low carb .... I kept thinking in the back of my mind how the 5th of July is right around the corner and then knowingly, that I will be strict for a whole month , Then I would eat some more .... Bad idea well the damage is done I am up 4 lbs with the splurge and ugh and today like I promised myself I went right back on plan Breakfast : was an egg white omelet , some espresso , water with lemon and vitamins and supplements .... I will be all turkey , tuna, and chicken and egg whites and water a whole month .... no - no low calorie , sugar free this or that and no diet soda .... I am keeping it perfectly strict .... I will add seasonings to my meats and eggs that I know did not hinder my weight loss in the past .... And btw I really will miss those Crystal lite Appletinis with vodka they were amazing !!!!

You guys will have those gains gone in no time.

Christine, Best wishes on your month of strict stills. It will be tough but the rewards will be so worth it. I am considering doing that in September, once all the summer hustle ends.

ok. i'm staying on course. today was eggs, chicken, low fat cheese and a large soy protein shake. i know that soy protein is not all the list-but i am at goal and maintaining, it also makes me feel great (but that is just me, I know some have issues with soy and the thyroid). soy sometimes makes me feel a little bloaty, but it goes away rather quickly or by morning.

so many great posts here. everyone is so positive and doing the work required to reach the goal. that's what it's about. showing up and working the plan. and stillmans IS the very best plan I have ever found.

angelstill: wishing you lots of luck this month!

bratty: the heat is hard on me as well. i usually take a couple showers each day when the weather is too hot. keeps me from swelling up, water seems to be anti inflammatory for me. I have certain allergies and the heat can aggravate them.
