So far today...

cabbage and veggie sausage with tomato
Coffee
Apple with peanut butter
Green Tea with lemon


It's only noon here, so I will have to start planning evening meals. I bought a bunch of Yves veggie ground round and will probably make something with that. I'll also have a protein shake later.

Hay and Lora, I'm glad the protein info is useful .. the group I did the talk for enjoyed it - which I thought was really weird, since only one other is vegetarian .. (apparently there had been some requests for that topic, lol!).

Me today:

B: coconut nut bark

S: Peanut butter whey protein concoction

L: avocado cheese and onion on half lc pita
brussel sprouts
coconut bark

S: flax muffin and whipped cream

D: .. not sure but probably fried eggs and cabbage

Wifey I totally envy you the tacos!!! Do you fry the beans in taco seasoning??! I may just have to make those .. there used to be lc taco shells, I wonder if they still make those? must google ...

I am very boring today .. kids home from school! Same as yesterday, except, veggieburger, cheese onions on half pita + sprouts at lunch ...

Lol! I eat a lot, lol! Not trying to lose weigh though .. just maintaining .. Ugh so I tried a processed lowcarb meal ... Dixie Diner Mac and Cheese and it was soooo bad -- just a taste of the cheese sauce -- that I left it in the bin! lol!

I also tried a chocoperfection bar today ... same reaction! I guess I prefer my own cooking, lol!

Anyhow .. loving this thread! I always avoided the menu threads and now all your meals appeal to me, here, lol! Well, except that I have never been very big on fruit (except for berries, pomegranate, black grapes and mango).

So today's food was the same as yesterday except the chocoperfection bar .. (omg it was narsty!!!) and 2 glasses red wine .. they helped me forget .. oh and I always have a couple of glasses on a Friday night

Last two days were the same usual menu, with the exception of dinner tonight:

Fried cabbage and Shiratake Noodles with butter, sour cream and parmesan cheese ...

I fed the rest of the family the highcarb pierogies and was hankering for that sour cream taste. 'Twas good!

Hay .. pumpkin butter sounds good!!! mmmmmmm!

What do you ladies think of this lady?

Do you agree with her? This is from another thread.

My take on the points she makes:

1. "losing weight is not about reducing calories" - I agree, especially after reading GCBC. There's also lots of self reported anecdotal evidence here on LCF that supports this theory.

2. "we should not be eating less fat" - Also agree, for the reasons stated above, as well as evidence that fat helps us better absorb nutrients, not to mention providing EFAs.

There's lots of sources of good naturally occurring fats available to vegetarians. Coconut oil, avocadoes, flaxseed oil, olive oil, nut oils, eggs/dairy if you're not vegan, fish oils for pescetarians, so on and so forth. To me, it seemed like she was advocating eating naturally occurring fats over industrial fats (canola, corn, soy, etc.), as opposed to saying everyone should be eating meat to get these fats.

3. Fruits and veggies - I'm going to quote Looweewoo, since he put it much more succinctly than I could ever hope to. "I don't think anyone would say that Fruits and vegetables don't have other advantages. It's just that the idea that they are "nutrition powerhouses" is false to fact. It's like pure water, which is good for you, but no one would say it's full of vitamins."

She also said they're valuable sources of Vit C and potassium, so I don't think she was writing them off totally.

4. Sugar is the #1 thing you should cut from your diet - I don't think there's many folks on a LC board who would disagree with this!

5. Exercise isn't necessary for weight loss - There are some stories here on LCF of people losing weight on a LC diet without engaging in any exercise, some even on long-term bedrest. I haven't made up my mind as to whether or not everyone could lose weight like that, though. At the very least, getting your muscles toned will help your clothes fit you better!

Anyway, it's all JMO. If someone can feel healthy and fulfilled following whatever WOE they choose, more power to them.

Also, I'm starting meat-free Mondays today, so I'm looking forward to adding my menus here!

B: black coffee with 2 Tbsp coconut oil and a splash of davinci's sf hazelnut.
L: cabbage/carrot/shallot stir fry with 2 pastured eggs scrambled into it. Made a sauce of soy sauce, peanut butter, and local honey to drizzle over it. The honey is from a backyard hive in my friend's yard.
D: roasted acorn squash and sage soup with a touch of raw milk.

It's just another person trying to make money off telling people to do what they want to do .. don't exercise, don't eat yer veggies ... the tagline is "Controversial nutritionist challenges conventional wisdom" ... ummmm.

The calorie thing .. she is talking about drastic reductions in calories, not ignoring calories. The Calories, the Fat .. uhhh that is Atkins. Ability to lose weight without exercise? That is a well-known fact ... you can lose a lot of weight without exercise, muscle mass along with bodyfat .. not something I would personally choose unless it were a medical necessity, i.e. I just could not exercise.

The vegetable thing? Sensationalism just like the cover of that book. She says right out that you get potassium, blah blah from vegetables. Just another author riding on the backs of others and feeding into what people want to hear ...


Todays menu ... usual boring old one!

coconut oil, nuts peanut butter brekkie
veggieburger and brussel sprout lunch
flax muffin snack
fried eggs and cabbage for dinner

Correction: I should have said "riding on the backs of Giants," not just "others" ... I cannot see myself quoting Zoe the nutritionist when Dr. Atkins said it all so much more eloquently ...
