Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Thanks, though we do need to keep in mind the Cholesterol in the eggs. When I went through the Cholesterol Study for Merck, the Print outs of food do's and don'ts limit eggs to 2 a week and that includes any as an additive to any other food you eat.
Lots of good foods here though.

Thanks for sharing the list with us. I am always looking for good ideas of low carb foods; especially when I need a snack.
You said that eating several times a day helps to keep the blood sugars level--well, my blood sugars are level, but eating several times a day also keeps my weight on my body. I need to eat so that I lose the weight.

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.” - Winnie the Pooh

When God seems far away, call on Psalm 139


"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own" 1 Cor. 6:19



Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. Phil 3:19


Prov 23:2
put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.

Useful information for all of us:

List of Low Carb Snack Foods

Do you get hungry and want a small snack to tide you over. If you eat several times a day you can maintain a healthy blood sugar throughout the day.
Here is a list of low carb snack foods most of these are under 15g of carbs and shouldn't elevate your blood sugar. However, everyone is different so be sure to test if you are unsure.


1. String Cheese

2. Celery and carrots

3. Cucumber sticks

4. Apple slices

5. Pretzels sticks

6. Popcorn (Mini Bag)100 calorie bag

7. Half a peanut butter sandwich make sure to use whole grain bread

8. Some cubes of cheese & a couple of rye triscuits

9. Peanut M&M's (very high carb and high GI - use sparingly)
10. Baked apple with a little cool whip

11. Celery sticks with peanut butter(you can find them in the store)

12. Cheddar cheese & apple slices

13. Muenster & pear slices

14. Feta & tomatoes

15. Sunflower seeds in shell

16. Dried apricots (High carb & High GI - use sparingly)

17. Bananas, strawberries, grapes(High carb)try freezing them for a summer snack

18. Arrow root cookies(limit to 15 gr carb)

19. Steamed asparagus with a squeeze of lime juice

20. Grilled zucchini with a squeeze of lemon juice

21. Poached fish served on lettuce leaves

22. Tuna roll ups in whole wheat tortillas

23. Tossed salad

24. Crunchy peanut butter toast with 1/8c raisins & 1/2 t cinnamon

25. Crunchy peanut butter toast with sliced peaches
26. Crunchy peanut butter toast with bananas

27. Coffee with cinnamon as a drink

28. Sliced radishes with a touch of salt

29. Crystal Light iced tea

30. Frozen grapes, frozen strawberries or frozen bananas(High Carb)

31. Laura Scudders 'nothing-added-except-salt peanut butter'

32. Dole fruit cups that come in a 6 pack. Freeze them and it is just like eating sherbet(contain real sugar)

33. Low fat Lorraine Swiss cheese and low salt crackers

34. Salsas mixed with low fat sour cream in a blender and then dip celery, green peppers and carrots in it. You can bake tortilla chips too.

35. Sugar free Jell-O containers

36. Little cans or containers of lite fruit with low fat cottage cheese.

37. Add bouillon(I use onion) to plain yogurt and dip veggies in it.

38. Raw carrots dipped in either tahina or organic unsweetened peanut butter

39. Raw cauliflower pieces and (plain) hummus (for dipping).

40. HARD BOILED EGGS

41. DEVILED EGGS

42. EGG SALAD HEAPED ON WASA CRACKERS

43. TUNA SALAD HEAPED ON WASA CRACKERS

44. EGG OR TUNA OR CHICKEN SALAD WRAPPED UP IN BUTTER LETTUCE LEAVES
