Fat free? Hmmm... it has to blow!

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

A friend of mine had gall bladder surgery this week. She has to go fat free for three months and then still may not be able to tolerate it well. That's got me to thinking about what it would mean to go fat free. No pat of butter on the toast. Trimming *all* excess fat from meats prior to cooking. No baked goodies. And the fat free stuff they have on the market? It's usually loaded with something else, more sugar, more additives, more something to get it to taste OK.

So far this week, I have thought more about low fat/fat free things to eat and came up with egg whites and cottage cheese- two protein power houses. I have been neglecting these for some reason. The egg whites primarily for the preparation, I think. But I got this handy dandy omelet maker thing from Dollar Tree and today I found the perfect amount of time for approximately 3 egg whites. Delicious with toast and fat free pepper jack cheese. *mmm*

I have also loaded up on the salads this week, too. I hope to have a great week. Last week was kind of meh with 1.8 lbs. To meet my 4 lb/week goal, I would need to lose 2.2 lbs. from last week. I think I have already surpassed that, but we shall see.

We're heading out tonight to get supplies for camping. Fun fun fun. Or something. We'll see after the fact. :D

    I had gall bladder surgery about 20 years ago and there's been nothing that I cannot eat. I can't think of any food that has ever given me any problems. And since that time, I've done high fat, low fat, high protein - low calorie, you name it, nothing made any difference, everything digests and does what it's supposed to do.

    I had my gall bladder removed 3 yrs ago. I have found three foods that I just can't eat anymore. Pizza, cabbage, broccoli send me into knee bending cramping spasms if I do eat them. My body just won't digest them anymore.

    Actually, many people without gall bladders can eat a high fat diet with no problem. That is, of course, if the fat is NOT attached to a sugar or a starch... Fat (other than trans fat) is only bad when it travels with bad company.
