Thanks Andrea! I've been aware for years that a lack of sleep can deter weight loss! I am a night owl and tend to stay up way past when I should be in bed!  ::)
I'm trying to increase the amount of sleep that I get and the only way to do that is to focus on it! lol
Have a great day!  :D

I have pretty bad experience with the Atkins bars because they have so much of the sugar alcohols!! They completely stall my weight loss and even make me gain, if I eat them too often! I would personally stay away from them!

Pork rinds are good for snacking and I can usually find different flavors in the grocery store! Just make sure to check the back for the carb count. The ones I snack on are 0 carb!

I've also found some great low carb tortillas! Remember that you can subtract the fiber from total carbs to get the net carbs! I use Ole' tortillas and they are 5 carbs each. I usually cut one in half and stuff it with chicken salad. Very yummy and gets a little fiber in without having to cook the flax meal bread, etc. for on the road!

I hope this helps a little bit! I look forward to hearing about your successes!!! :D

Hey maidmarian and welcome to the forum! Hopefully you will find this reply, I always click on "show new replies to my posts" at the top of the screen when I sign onto the forum! That way you can see what folks are saying to help you!! With that being said, I have had a HUGE sweet tooth as well and have to say that it's waaaay better since I went through the carb/sugar detox, which, for me, took about 2 weeks! To get to that point, you have to be strong and only eat low carb so that you can get through it, no cheating, and drink a boat load of water!!! Here's what I eat on a typical day to give you an idea for what you can eat!

I usually drink a cup of coffee w/4 drops of Zero and 2T heavy cream to start my day. When I feel hungry (usually about an hour after I get up) I will eat 1 sausage patty & 2 eggs cooked in benecol (margarine).

I drink ice water in between meals and I'm really surprised how little food my body needs!

I've discovered recently that I'm slightly hypoglycemic and can't go more than 4.5 hours without eating. If I do, I feel very dizzy, etc.

For lunch, I will have a cup or two of romain lettuce w/ chicken salad (chopped up baked chicken and 1T. mayo.) on top and little bit of olive oil drizzled over.

For dinner I will bake a piece of salmon with butter and garlic "grill mates" seasoning on top. I love eating the flax cornbread ( ) for fiber or an Umpa McMuffin ( ).

I usually eat a flax meal pancake ,made from the one minute muffin recipe, every other day for breakfast ( )! The fiber helps me stay full longer and helps keep things moving through my system too!  :o

I'll jump back onto this message and put in the links to these recipes from the forum to make it easier for you to find them!!

I really hope this helps you and know that we're all here cheering for you!! Check back often and get to know all the wonderful folks here!!   :D

Hey Siltz and welcome to the family! I have to say that since this is a lifestyle change for me, there isn't a "cheat" to be had. You cheat on diets and this is not that for me, so I would have to say no!!

Also, once I went through 2 weeks of withdrawal from all the carbs and sugar, I never ever want to have to do that again!!

There are tons of great ideas and recipes on the forum and wonderfully supportive people!! Take time to read all the great posts and encouragement!   :D

Dinner Recipes / Cream of Broccoli, Cheese soup
« on: January 05, 2013, 10:18:15 PM »
I know that I got this recipe on the forum, but can't seem to find it, so I thought I would re-post!! We had this tonight and the kids LOVED it!!!  ::)

2 cups cooked soft broccoli
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
2 cups Doug’s Rich and Creamy Alfredo sauce:
Salt and pepper to taste

Puree the broccoli in a food processor
add the almond milk into the food processor and process for a minute
pour the mixture into a sauce pot and add the Alfredo sauce
stir well and taste, adjust salt and pepper
bring to a boil, reduce to simmer for 15 minutes
Add shredded cheddar cheese to top of each bowl when serving.

I added some cubed, leftover ham too and it was delicious!!!!  ;D

General Discussion / Re: Are there any menu plans for this diet?
« on: December 26, 2012, 11:53:47 AM »
Hey Lynnecando! I have to post a little "warning" on here about the sugar free coffee syrups out there; if you drink a lot of coffee/decaf. like I do, you will want to use FTS Zero (just a few drops per cup) and 0 carb. heavy whipping cream instead! There are no sugar alcohols like in the store bought kinds of sf syrups and there's also no after taste!! Very good alternative that will not cause ANY problems!!

Good luck and post often! We're here to help and encourage you!!
