I agree. I am eating less processed food and have always scratch cooked and agree it's hard to know what the numbers are but according to many studies the numbers on processed foods are all over the chart too and often are off.

When you make lots of stuff from scratch, it's often hard to know exactly how many calories you're actually getting. I eat a lot of my own chicken broth, and the calorie counts for that are all over the place! But I know I'm getting good bone broth, which I think is very important. Can't wait to experiment when I'm eating normally soon! I'm hoping it's true that my metabolism and weight set point will be reset. Seemed to work first time around, according to the BIA measurements.

I hate only having 1200 calories. It really forces you to use them wisely. You are not necessarily hungry if you do it right but feel deprived.

I've just seen this thread ladies. I don't think I could live on 1200 hundred,
but I do quite well during the week. Shawn, like you, I know what I have
to do to lose weight. I have to be more diligent and really count the carbs's
as that is what puts weight on for me. I also use natural yoghurt for dressing
with a bit of cider vinegar to give it a bit of a tang.

That would be wonderful. After having to eat so few calories I'm sure you would really enjoy being able to eat more and still lose.

I hope my next BIA indicates a rise in BMR back up to at least 1500 calories so I can maybe lose if I come in a few hundred under...once I stabilize, of course.

It will be interesting to see how many calories I average once I'm back to eating "real" food!

I can blow through 1200 calories fairly quick too. That's why I can't do it consistently. It sucks. When I am in a weight loss mode I will do this short term, lose some weight, maintain, and then start over.

Wow!! 1200 Calories is a drop in the bucket for me. I don't even know what that's like. I think I'm able to maintain because of my running. I will say that NOTHING takes weight off for me like low carb. NOTHING. One day I'm planing to do induction again. I want that body back. The only down side is that low carb interferes with my runs. I simply can't run as long or as hard.

Smart Carber.

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

When I'm healthy I can do that much exercise but as soon as I get sick I am lucky to get my minimum in.

Aw, thanks, Shawn! Felt very puffy in those pics! Hope the ones from the next cruise look better. I weigh less, so I suppose they should...

Morticia, don't think I could live on 1200 calories for any length of time, and there's no way I could do that much exercise! I'm glad I'm not really supposed to do exercise right now. The yoga seems to be OK, but it's making me sweat even more than ever. Not quite sure what that's about, but it might have something to do with the protocol. At least I'm getting rid of toxins, I suppose...

I have to eat 1200 calories and exercise for 2 hours a day to lose weight. It works but it's not much fun. LOL.

I haven't really been able to lose any weight off of hCG, unfortunately, but I know my body likes to be pretty low-carb. I'm hoping that when I'm done the low-carb maintenance 3 weeks coming up, I can manage to lose a bit more over time by watching carbs and the dreaded calories. Supposedly my set point will be lower and my metabolism higher...

I take few meds as I have problems with the side effects. The nephrologist I worked for said it is best with my family history.

Seriously I know enough to lose weight in a quick n healthy way, I don't need any regimented diet I must follow.

Oh yea the Mediterranean one is very good and liveable.

Summer is coming and I need to lose these holiday pounds ;-)

I'm eating healthy and low cal, I'll be fine,

I'm changing my focus on eating cleaner. Cutting back on processed foods and eating fresh.

Shawn, You might want to look at other lower-carb alternative plans. Like South Beach, which does not require counting carbs. It focuses on lean protein, vegetables, fruit, and after Phase 1, healthy whole grains.

It's less restrictive than Atkins, and more livable.

I started Atkins Induction 5 days back, yesterday my 4th day in, I remembered my low cal home made soup in the freezer, I unfroze it to have some and realized the (amount of) tomatoes in the soup would not keep me in the daily allowed 20 grams of carbs or less, which really miffed me.

That and some things I read on: What They Don't Tell You About LowCarb Diets (which I added to my signature yesterday) made me question what I was doing.

I think I'm temporarily burned out on all regimented diets...

I make egg salad with hummus instead of mayo - to me, mayo is just boring and I don't like the texture/mouth feel. With the hummus, it adds more protein and lots of flavor.

I have made my own, it's easy as you say, I'm just swamped w/the grandboy, so I need quick.

I'm doing Induction (4 days in now) and yogurts not on the menu :-(

I use plain greek yogurt and some spices. I especially like curry. If I want a bit of the "oily" texture of mayo I add a bit of olive oil. I also have some veganaise ( a vegan mayo alternative) which is very good.

I worry more about the soybean oil than I do the little bit of sugar, so I too make my own, usually with a mild olive oil. You can just layer the ingredients in a pint jar in the right order and use a stick blender. Easiest way I've ever tried. The recipe is in the Living Primal in a Modern World message boards.

Making your own mayo is easy and tastes great. I started making my own as a salad dressing base since every single salad dress and may had added sugar.

The only SF Mayo I could find was Duke's: https://www.dukesmayo.com
It's not sold in the Western States so I ordered it off their website.

I think till the Duke's arrives I'll use ricotta cheese for Mayo in egg salad, unless someone has other ideas they'd like to share. For a lettuce egg salad wrap.
