Ask Umpa / 5 minute/4 ingredient No Bake Cheescake
« on: February 14, 2015, 01:15:01 PM »
Hi Umpa,
I have a recipe that I want to run by you for tweaking to keep within a reasonable net carb count, if that is even possible! Someone posted it on Facebook and I have made it several times before FTS! I am not sure if it will even turn out using the alternative condensed milk recipe, but thought I would try it.
1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14/oz)  (Note: I am going to make 2 batches of Doug's condensed milk recipe and use that to make 14 oz.)
1 8 ounce tub of cool whip (sugar free variety)
1/3 cup of lemon or lime juice
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese

Leave cream cheese out for a couple of hours to get to room temperature. The cream cheese should be soft and smooth (this is important or recipe will be lumpy). Once cream cheese is softened put it in a mixing bowl and add sweetened condensed milk and cool whip. Mix until well blended and smooth.  Lastly, add lemon or lime juice and mix on low speed about 2 minutes. Pour ingredients into mini muffin pans (mine were silicone). Refrigerate for 1-1/2 hours. Served chilled. (I put mine in the freezer although the original recipe never mentioned that.)

I would appreciate your thoughts and tweaks on this. Thank you

Hello everybody,
I am on day 3 of my path to skinny. Feeling great - no headaches or fatigue. I am going to post my journey if that is OK so that I can keep myself accountable.

As soon as I finish 2 more tasks on my To Do list (which I have put off for ages!) I am rewarding myself with ordering Zero drops and the two cookbooks! My normal reward was to stuff myself with carb-loaded food. Baby steps to change! Will be placing my order by end of day - YEAH!

Finishing my long overdue two remaining To Do tasks.
Making boiled/deviled eggs to keep on hand in the frig.
Thawing two pounds of ground venison to make meatloaf - I'll be mixing it with a pound of ground beef for fat content.
Thawing chicken breasts to marinate and grill up for salads this week and to pack for hubby's lunch.
Thawing venison loin to make beef jerky so that I can carry it with me when I go somewhere and am not tempted to stuff my face with junk!
Cutting up my veggies from yesterday's grocery trip and making Mason Jar salads and putting remainder of cut veggies into Mason Jars to retain freshness and an easy go-to snack.

After weighing myself this morning and seeing a 2.2 pound weight loss in just two days - I am hooked. I got rid of all my WW 'points counting' stuff after my weigh-in. I tried four different times with WW and lost a few pounds each time by being overly obsessed with food - that's all I thought about day and night. I agonized about whether I would have enough 'points' left not to starve by the end of the day. Sometimes I would even 'save' points so I could indulge in a big fat Snicker's bar, but of course I wouldn't stop at that - I would eat carbs galore and gain back what had taken me several weeks to lose - yep, it was a real roller coaster ride for me. I know WW works for some people and I am not dissing it by any means, but for me it wasn't the right approach. You would think after twice I would have figured this out instead of 4 different times, but I am hardheaded and hate to give up!

Going to the store yesterday was a new experience - didn't take long at all because I totally passed up several aisles! Weird as it may seem, I am finding comfort in the simplicity of this. Feeling relieved working on food preparation rather than stressing about what to eat for each meal! This is my journey . . . and I'm sticking to it.

Hello everybody,
I just bought Fat to Skinny and read it cover to cover in one sitting! Having 50 pounds to lose has been an uphill battle and, from what I have learned in FTS, it is one battle that I would probably never conquer because I am...addicted to carbs. Yep, I said it and I'll own it ~ now that I have the knowledge to beat this and get healthy. Made my first trip to the grocery store to get some real-life food and am working on cleaning out my cupboards. Can't wait to meet new friends and share experiences. Cheers to seeing 'less' of us!
