Hi There New to site
« on: November 24, 2011, 10:08:17 PM »
I bought the book ( e-book) a few years ago and I am glad I saved it. I stated to review the book (again) and hope to start lowcarbing on soon. At 327 lbs it sucks to be big. I had the lap band done back
in Dec 2005 and my pre-surgery weight was 323 Lbs... I was doing great.. Watching the amount of food I ate ( was not counting calories per say but I weight everything..No more then 4 oz at a time per meal).. I exercise every morning...before I started work at 2PM... Got down to 267 lbs ...Felt good, started buying new clothes at the local  walmart ( not kingsizedirect.com). Then My hours change.. started working 8am to 5pm... my workout went from 4-5 days a week to zero per week. I started to gain my weight back and had to start buying bigmans clothes again. Well now with the holidays all the potlucks at work and so forth I really need to keep an eye out.....
 
I would like to know is there a simple menu to follow .... I don't really cook but I can do boiled eggs/ lunch meats and cheese/ hamburgers ( no bun) ....Etc

Thanks Doug for the E-mail and referring me to the site.

Need all the help I can get/  Thanks  Joe

Welcome to the forum, bigjoey! I'm sorry you've put the weight back on! How discouraging!!  But now that you've made the committment to FTS, you'll see how good you feel - and you don't HAVE to exercise to lose weight! Do get some almond flour (or make your own using whole almonds and a grinder) and flaxseed meal and check out the One Minute Muffin. So easy and quick - and DELICIOUS! It's very versatile and filling. I like it as a quick breakfast. 

Sometimes I make it in a small shallow pan, cut it in half and use it like bread to make a quick grilled ham and cheese sandwich.  The whole process takes less than 5 minutes. You can even use it for a hamburger bun. Recipe follows.

Look up some of the recipes posted here and get the ingredients.  Just DO IT. You'll get better as you go along.

One-Minute Muffin

  1 Tablespoon  butter
  1/4  cup  flaxseed meal -- (can use almond meal, oat fiber, coconut flour or a  mixture)
  1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  1 egg
  1  teaspoon  xylitol (or 1-2 Spenda pkts or 1 T S/F flavored syrup Torani/Da Vinci)

Melt butter in a coffee cup or measuring cup. Add rest of ingredients and mix well microwave approximately 50-60 seconds (depending on micro wattage).  Turn out and let cool.  Muffin top should look shiny and a little moist. Serve w/butter or cream cheese while warm or plastic wrap for later.

BigJoey, when I first started FTS, all I wanted was quick to fix/eat food, and I soon became discouraged by the 'low-carb diet' I assumed. It was boring and I didn't want to look another hard boiled egg in the, uh, face! So finally I had to branch out and try the recipes. I don't particularly like to cook these days, but Doug has some really easy recipes that are delicious! I highly recommend the Macafoney and Cheese dish - the recipe is on the www.fattoskinny.com site - there's a video of Doug making this dish. It's not hard at all and you'll be delighted with it if you crave mac and cheese! You'll find all the support you could wish for on this forum. There are plenty of dishes that don't require fancy ingredients. You post any questions and someone will answer you right away!  :) :)

Hi Joey and welcome to the forum!  We are all on this journey together, so just jump on in here with us!  If I can do this, anybody can!  I've struggled with my weight all my life, but I believe I can eat the FTS way the rest of my life!  I never feel deprived.  I LOVE desserts, and the recipes here are awesome!   ;D
