And then there is the issue of fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E. They can not be absorbed in a low-fat diet and that results in many different potential health problems.

I totally agree on eating fat. It satisfies longer.

I'm having a snack of Macademia nuts right now. Hard to believe, but those nuts are 75% fat. Lots of cheeses have quite a bit of fat too.

Absolutely eat fat. That's the most common (and probably worst) mistake people make when doing low carb. It just doesn't work if you don't.

I agree with the advice to find tasty low-carb options. It looks like so far you have been eating both low-carb and low-fat. I would recommend including lots of fat in your diet as it is really helpful for both weight control and appetite control. If you have never read an Atkins book it might be helpful to understand why most people who eat low-carb eat very high-fat.
Cheers,
Birgit

Joye,
I think the key to managing eating low carb is having a big enough range of low carb things that it doesn't get boring.

I keep looking for new things to add to my arsenal. This week I'm going to be making low carb pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Whipped cream and pumpkin filling will be sweetened with stevia. The crust will be a modification of my pancake recipe using protein powder rather than wheat flour. I read the pumpkin can nutritional information carefully, they are not at all the same.

If you don't change anything you'll get great pancakes:

I'll be modifying it for my crust.

So glad you joined our team. You'll get a lot of support and tips here.

I would make a low carb dessert - probably cheesecake if I knew that's what I love, and it was going to be at the event tempting me.

I don't have many tricks in my bag ... BUT ...

Eat until you are satisfied - then drink a big bottle of water until you have no room left for desert.

When it is time for desert...pop in an Altoids Smalls (mini Altoids) or sugar free mint gum or brush your teeth. All appetite killers for me.



Usually I am good, but every once in a while I have to resort to self-deception.

ATKINS ALL THE WAY!

When I get invited to friend's for dinner, I sometimes bring my own dessert. I'll bring enough for everyone, but it's really meant for me. emoticon emoticon

It's hard to stay LC when you're surrounded by tasty carbage. I often fall victim in my Mom's house, she eat mostly carbs.

Look for ways to address specific problems. For example, you can make a sugar-free cheesecake, with a nut crust or no crust. You could either take it to the party, or know that it's waiting at home while you resist the one at the party. Resist intelligently instead of just trying to do it with pure will power.

Hi all, I just joined this team. I rarely eat sugar, keep it low carb and clean. I have been doing the "Smoothie Shakedown" by Unikey Health. The protein powder is all natural good stuff and 20 g protein per scoop. I have 2 of those a day and a meal with low fat protein, chicken beef or fish and a green vegt. So very low carb. I put 1/2 cup of mixed berries in the smoothie for breakfast and 1T flax oil for health and satiety. So it is 320 calories. Then at night I have the other smoothie without the oil or berries. If I get hungry later, I eat a string cheese, low fat, or a hard boiled egg.

So that all works for me if I stay on it, but I just am not consistent. That is what I need help with, being consistent!!!

For instance, we have a get together sunday at a friends, everybody is bringing an hors devours (sp?). I am bringing deviled eggs and some ice cream we just bought that my hubby doesn't like. I can stay away from the ice cream, but I think somebody is bringing cheese cake!! I WILL have cheese cake...and so it goes. I guess I am just not committed enough. I think that is really my problem.

How do you get and stay committed? HELP!!!! emoticon
