Please help--a simple thing

Tuesday, July 20, 2010      10 comments

Please let me know you are checking on me. Let me know somebody cares, just for a little while. This has been a tough season emotionally for me. Consequently, I seem to keep screwing up in small ways, just enough to keep me stalled for month... Read more

some days I blow it....

Monday, July 19, 2010      3 comments

...like I blew it today. I was going to be alone all day. Had to entertain myself. Usually, I can do that without food. But there was this new Indian restaurant with a fabulous menu... and I've been feeling down and depressed about my marri... Read more

ZERO-CARB SWEETENERS

Saturday, July 17, 2010      0 comments

First off, I ALWAYS try to mix my sweeteners: aspartame, acesulfame-K, saccharine, and stevia, for the best taste. Frequently, mixing can give you a synergistic effect, making things taste even sweeter than you might expect. Second, artif... Read more

Uses and drawbacks of polyols

Wednesday, July 14, 2010      1 comments

All polyols are not created equal. Some are sweeter than others. They have different carb values. They function differently. And some are more available than others. And of course, their costs vary. All the calories in polyols are CARBs. I got ... Read more

Sugar Equivalents

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      1 comments

For now, I am going to exclude polyol information. The chart below tells you how much sweetener to use to equal 1 Tablespoon sweetness of sugar, and how many carbs it has: ALL MEASURES EQUIVALENT TO 1 T SUGAR IN SWEETNESS: SUGAR: 1 T = 12 g ... Read more

Most artificial sweeteners have carbs. How many?

Monday, July 12, 2010      1 comments

So you want something sweet. And you are low-carbing. And to your chagrin, you've learned that the carbs in artificial sweeteners ADD UP! How do you choose what to use? There is taste, of course (does it taste close enough to sugar for you?)... Read more

Fat Fast Stage 3

Sunday, July 11, 2010      0 comments

Huh? IS there a stage 3? Well, If the fat fast has worked for you, and stage 2 has worked for you, and you still have the discipline, you still need to ease back into regular low-carbing. The next step is to return to Induction for a few day... Read more

Some Fat-Fast Stage 2 Mini-Meals

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      0 comments

If the high fat/carb ratio and cutting calories work, any dietary change in that direction should work. As you leave Stage 1 of the Fat-Fast, you can try adding more calories (6 mini-meals of 200 calories), OR 4 smaller meals of about 300 calor... Read more

So what IS Stage 2 of the Fat Fast?

Sunday, July 04, 2010      1 comments

Hopefully, by now you know what the Fat Fast is (90% fat calories, 1000 calories total, for the purpose of getting into ketosis fast). You know that most of you will lose a pound a day. You also know that that loss is the most ephemeral thing ... Read more

Fat Fast Stage 2, Day 7 (BLOWN!)

Saturday, July 03, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday started out well...I left the house and just never got back soon enough. When I did, I was famished and terribly thirsty, and I blew it. I ate an entire rack of baby back ribs. I did scrape off most of the sauce. I assure you, tha... Read more

Fat Fast Day 5

Thursday, July 01, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday (day 5) was a breeze. I was very busy again -- not at home most of the day -- so I did not eat enough. But I had plenty energy and felt pretty good. Part of that is because my back is FINALLY healing. But I got in at least 800 calo... Read more

Fat Fast Day 4

Wednesday, June 30, 2010      1 comments

I felt light-headed intermittently, and had low energy. I did make myself some awesome baked custard, and had no trouble eating my full 1000 calories. I followed the fat fast perfectly today -- and by MY calculations I should've been well ove... Read more

Fat Fast Day 3

Tuesday, June 29, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday was a mixed bag. I was busy. I was hungry. I didn't eat. When dinnertime rolled around, the stars aligned and I had time to eat and food to eat! The thing is, you eat fat, and you feel full fast. And on the fat fast, I'm eating ... Read more

Fat Fast Day 2

Monday, June 28, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday, I was hungry and thirsty until evening. Except for a handful (1 oz) of almonds, and too much guacamole, and 2 strawberries, which resulted in a too-low-fat-percentage for the day, I managed to stay within limits of the fat-fast. Whi... Read more
