General Discussion / Another Good Book
« on: November 21, 2010, 12:04:35 PM »
I just recently bought this book secondhand through Amazon.  It's a good one for sticking with the low carb lifestyle for the long term.  Some good recipes and strategies.  Well worth it!

The book is called, appropriately enough, Living Low Carb....The Complete Guide to Long-term Low-Carb Dieting.  The author is Fran McCullough.

The whole time that I have been doing low carb ( and lost 20lbs) I snacked in between meals on cheese!  Also i never gave up my glass on wine in the evening!  That's what made it so do able!

This is what I've been eating.  The trouble is it tastes so good sometimes I have two!

Wow!   I like the sound of Jicama apples with pork chops!  I guess I could add cinnamon or cloves right?

Dinner for us is usually some kind of protein that Mr. Jack Spratt the low fat dieter can tolerate plus a big salad.  It gets boring!  I usually have a glass of white wine (or two) before dinner with a little bit of cheese or veggie snacks.  Jack fills himself up with cereal and toast later on during the evening.  My protein keeps me going pretty well for the evening.  Sometimes I nibble on more cheese

My current favorite lunch is a simple Ceasar salad with added chicken.  I can throw it together at home ( I buy ready cooked chicken to keep handy) or order eat at most restaurants if I am out for lunch.

I like to have dessert too.  Uusally berries or a sugar free pudding of some type.  I think I am eating too much of the artificially sweetened  stuff though just lately.  Natural is better eg. strawberries.

Hi Guys:

My favorite Fattoskinny breakfast is BLT wraps.  I don't like eggs so none of those eggy recipes work for me.  i use the 3 or net net carb wraps, whichever I have and zap the bacon in the microwave.  Sometimes I add avocado, sometimes jjust leftover lettuce and tomato from last nights salad,  That ususally sees me through to mid morning when I typically eat an Atkins bar of or similar.

Hi Doug!

I finally remembered my password so now I am back!

I lost 20 lbs a year ago with Fattoskinny and have been maintaining it very nicely until just lately.  The weather here in Wisconsin has takien a turn for the worse and sudddenly I feel empty and hungry!  Also, the fake food such as protein bars etc. has started to give me gas.  My husband is a confirmed and successful low fat dieter for life, so i have to have low fat stuff as well as low carb stuff in my kitchen.  The only food we can both eat are vegetables.

I know, I know,  so many problems!  I'm just off to eat a piece of cheese to fill myself up!

Glad to be back

Rashers of bacon just means regular strips of bacon.  Maybe it's an English thing!  I am English and every so often i still come out with these things even though i've lived here 20 years.  We also use the term "streaky" bacon which I haven't heard  in the US

Hi Everyone!

The morning after I have made cauliflower "mashed potatos" I fry up the leftovers for breakfast with a couple of rashers of turkey bacon.  It's very good due to the butter and mayonaise used in the mash!
