I am re-reading Tory Johnson's (Good Morning America contributor) book of last year THE SHIFT. She lost 80 lbs doing low carb of 25 carbs per day. She had no cheat days and ate small portions; drinking water mostly. It's a good read for those who want added encouragement and you can find it in bookstores or on amazon.com.

I am using protein powder from Whole Foods.
Won't buy any more.
I find it rather gritty and with an aftertaste.

CLASSYKAREN27,
I don't know what brand of protein powder COSTCO sells, it varies by region, and by which day I go shopping. Just make sure it is about 4% carbs, or less, by weight.

Thank you James. I am a Costco member too. May I ask what brand of protein powder from Costco did you use was it "Pure Protein" ? I always add organic flax seed to my shake.

CLASSYKAREN27,
If you mean "Ideal Protein" diet, then yes I know exactly what you mean. I started on that for 5 months and transitioned to grocery store, but low carb foods.

Basically that diet is about 60 to 100 grams of protein a day, and about 800 to 1000 calories a day. I continue to have whey protein as part of my diet. Tubs of the stuff from COSTCO, or similar, are cheaper than Ideal Protein, but you have to be creative (which I am).

Plenty of advice if you are interested.

Just like garlic, the acetone is coming from your lungs, so there's not a whole lot to do about it in the short run. What it means is that you're burning so much fat that your body can't use all the ketones, so you're exhaling and urinating the excess away. You won't keep burning at that rate for too long, so enjoy the stinky breath while you have it, lol! Most people notice it for, at most, about 2 weeks. So yeah, try the mint to blend with the fruity smell.

When calorie-counting diet plans talk about how your calories in have to match your calories out they ignore things like "calories peed away or breathed out". But on low carb you sometimes have "calories disposed of".

I use Precision Hardcore series Engineerd Whey Protein Isolate. You can get it at Vitamin World. (Stores in most malls and even some outlet malls). It comes in several flavors, I use Vanilla that way I can mix flavorings and/or berries in with it. I use almond milk to mix it with. It's got 130 calories, 2 gr. carbs, 1 gr. fiber, less than 1 gram sugar, and has 60 grams protein. It is very good tasting. I do use a blender of immersion blender to mix it to get it smooth and creamy.

I've used it for about 3 years now - about a tub a month as I just use it for breakfast usually.

I was interested in trying protein shakes a while back but still haven't found anything that works and I'm trying to to stick with whole, unprocessed foods.
With that said, I can't see myself making shakes from scratch every morning, unfortunately!

Doug,
I did a little research, and it looks like the amino acid profile for eggs is very close to whey protein. So, even with lactose intolerance it looks like by just eating eggs your wife can get the protein she needs.

Isn't it always better to use whole, real food instead of processed products? I don't use shakes or drinks, but there are quite a few sites with recipes for protein drinks and shakes made from actual food (note that these are not all low carb, but they mostly look pretty tasty):

Seems like many years ago I saw, and might have gotten, some egg based protein powder. Don't know if it's still available or if it tastes good, but it ought to have all the essential amino acids James was talking about.

Doug, I wish I could help. A protein is broken down into amino acids when digested, and there is an optimal ratio for humans, to make sure you get enough of each type.

Whey protein, coming from cows, a mammal like us, is closer to optimal. Soy protein doesn't have as good a ratio, so you can be short changed on some essential amino acids. Essential means you can't manufacture them from other things, they have to be consumed rather than internally transformed.

So all types of protein are not the same.

Does anyone know of a GOOD tasting protein drink and protein bar without milk whey?
My wife is gluten intolerant and also reacts to milk products (excessive bloating of the stomach for a day). Even the refined whey protein isolate causes the same reaction.

There is a glut of products on the market and we have tried a vegan protein drink and a vegan bar that she thinks is disgusting. I have seen rice protein and pea protein products but I don't want to shell out $40-$50 bucks on a product that tastes like wall paper glue, even if it is chocolate wallpaper glue.

Any suggestion for a GOOD tasting products?

Had to look this up and do some rewriting and I'm still not sure I've got it right, but it appears that Ketostix don't measure all ketones. The substance on the strips is sensitive to acetoacetate and its cousin, acetone, but not beta hydroxybutyrate. So, again, using them is not going to tell you a very clear story. Apparently, the only really accurate method of testing is blood testing.

It is my understanding that during the transition from being carb oriented, to fat and protein oriented, that the body isn't as efficient at burning fat, and ketones are a byproduct.

However, the deeper, or longer, you are in ketosis, the better the body is at burning fat, and fewer ketones are produced. So the test strips may show little, except during the transition phase.

The urine test strips are moderately unreliable. You'll get dark results sometimes just because you're dehydrated. I still keep them on hand and test once in a while to check on things. For instance, I tested a few mornings last week and found that the strips didn't show more than a trace of ketones until just before lunch time, which is probably the residual effect of my evening beers. So I'm lucky if I'm producing ketones half of the day. Ah well, knowledge is power.

Let's see, a cup of water is about 250 millilitres, also 250 grams. Water is pretty close in weight to cantaloupe, so it should weigh about 125 grams.

Pizza ...

I've baked many things with protein powder in the place of flour. For pizza lovers I'd suggest making the dough with the same ingredients as usual, except with unflavoured, or perhaps vanilla flavoured protein powder in place of flour.

It will be more like pancake batter than dough. So pour it on a well greased pizza pan, bake it first, then add toppings, cheese, pepperoni, etc. and bake those on the already done crust.

I've done it before, and it works out pretty good.

When I want "pizza" - I take a small flat casserole dish, put in some pizza sauce, add pizza cheeses, toppings such as pepperoni, sausage, anchovies, ham, or whatever - I put another layer of mozzarella, some onion, bell pepper, etc. - use your imagination. Then I put it in the oven and bake it until the cheeses are melted and gooey. I don't even think about "crust" it's pizza in a dish and just use a fork.

I have found no pizza "crust" that's acceptable to me...

Have been very low carbing since December.
Just starting to very slowly add a few more.
Am at my goal weight and want to keep it that way.
At this point it would be very easy to gain 10 or 20 pounds.
Been there, done that.
Don't wanna do it again.

Yum! Sounds great!

~ Declutter my current batch of paper and clerical To-Do's by
~ Getting all my daily personal clerical upkeep tasks done in the first hour of the day and
~ Scheduling my workday workouts like I would schedule a meeting and
~ Scheduling a defined half hour for lunch, when I work/play only on personal business

Hi, I just ate a whole pizza made with Cauliflower Crust. Wasn't really easy to eat like a pizza, but a fork helped a lot. Mind you, it was only about 8 inches, but mm mmm good.
For breakfast I enjoyed a low carb mock Danish. Now I am looking for something with more fiber and not a lot of carbs. Got a little heavy on the vegs.

Quote of the day, which it came up with, but which surely must have been said before ...

The verdict is in. After randomly picking chocolate flavoured Reddi-Whip as an example, I looked into in. The nutrition comes out as a 20 gram serving having 5 grams of carbs, so 25% carbs by weight.

Sadly I won't be eating this.

Update on KETO diet.
Weighed this morning.
I lost 2.5 pounds in four days!
Thrilled with results.

Today I will add lean pork loin (4 ounces).
That is the only change I will do for the next few days.
If I am doing well then I will add romaine lettuce.
And so on until I am on low carb Atkins phase 2 or 3 diet plan.

Am almost at my goal weight! emoticon
