Please excuse the intrusion...I don't have the time to read the backlog, sorry, but may I ask, are you losing any weight?
Long plateaus of standing still, getting ravenous, eating more, losing a bunch of weight in one go, gradually eating less again. Short story. Rince and repeat. So far, managed to avoid gaining.
I had forgotten just how yummie my mini burgers are - until I took package no. 2 out of the freezer and put it into the fridge.
I've had two of them so far today - with a fried egg (with each) and a few slices of cheese inbetween.
Ehhh... 50/50 of minced lamb and pork, one package of Feta cheese (crumbled), one onion (finely chopped and softened in butter) and one egg. I think. I might have tossed some other spices in, but I can't remember what.
'Experts' opposing LCHF often remark that 'we know nothing about the long time effects'. 'Eating LCHF will increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.'
'Four-Year Follow-up after Two-Year Dietary Interventions'
A comparison bwtween three diets; low-fat, low-carb and Mediterranean.
'At 6 years, changes from baseline in the ratio of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol were similar in the three groups (P=0.62 for all comparisons), although the change in the ratio was significant in the low-carbohydrate group (a reduction of 0.16, P=0.04)
So they followed their diet for 2 years, then went back to regular diet, what they ate before? Or did they remain with the new diet?
Reading again, some continued their diet, some not. I would like to see the end points separated by who continued and who didn't. Because averaging two sets doesn't mean you can draw a conclusion on more than the average...
Colting's pancakes (Jonas Colting; triahtlon champion, author, lecturer, blogger)
Not strictly LCHF because of the banana, but pretty yummie
5 big or 6 small eggs
2 tbsp peanut butter
Mix, fry in lots of cocos oil
I made one pancake in my small frying pan using
1 bgsp almond butter (didn't have any peanut butter)
Fried in a little cocos oil and lots of butter, because I think the oil sputters a bit too much on its own
It was slightly runny on top, so I flipped it once and fried on the other side as well
Reminder to self: coconut bread in microwave oven
1 egg, whipped
1½ dl (½ cup) ground coconut
25 g (1½ tbsp) butter
Mix together (easier of you melt the butter first), pour into 2 small bowls, nuke at max heat until firm yet fluffy (probablly a bit less than 2 minutes).
Squeeze of lime
Diced, stirred together. It could have done with something oniony.
I don't remember if I've described how cocos oil can also be used as a facial peeling/cleansing cream.
Just gently massage it in - your skin will soak up most of it. If not, lightly press a paper tissue against it.
I tried this one evening and, while I was applying it, tiny flakes of dead skin came off. I put a towel on my pillow to avoid any possible stains.
Next morning, I cleansed my skin with a cotton ball drenched in facial water, and I saw some tiny black spots on it. I think it was impurities that had been drawn out of the pores. Same thing in the evening.
After a few days, my skin turned very try, so it is by no means a moisturizing cream.
However, on thicker and less sensitive skin it can actually make the skin softer and more supple.
Here's an interesting study showing why it's wise to avoid sugar when trying to lose weight:
Hyperinsulinemia Drives Diet-Induced Obesity Independently of Brain Insulin Production
'Thus, we provide genetic evidence that pathological circulating hyperinsulinemia drives diet-induced obesity and its complications.'
Another hole in the belt, at least on an emtpy stomache - a bit too tight on a full. That makes an accumulated total of around 14 cm/5.5 inches. I love taking a measuring tape and putting it around my waist, then add the loss just to see how much difference it makes visually.
I read a very simple yet sensible explanation as to why people regain weight faster when leaving a LCHF diet than when leaving a low calorie diet. It wasn't talking about the immediate 3 or 4 pounds of water weight.
Protein and fat are less fattening than carbohydrate. When leaving a low calorie diet, people generally start eating more protein and fat, which are less fattening than carbohydrate. When leaving a LCHF diet, people begin eating more carbohydrate.
Interesting Hyp - but then, I have no intention of going back to eating lots of carbs, ever.
On New Year's Day, it'll be three years since I started on LCHF - three! Incredible how time flies.
Tonigt, for dinner, I'm making one of those small egg wraps, but I'm going to make a pizza on top of it instead of rolling it up. Tomato paste, smoked ham, sliced tomato with herbal salt and oregano crumbled on top, and shreeded Mozarella cheese I think I might have a red onion that I could slice thinly over the tomato slices.
I don't know, some days the spelling errors slip through more often than usual. And no, I don't use a spell checker - hate the things since their vocabulary are missing several bona fide words.
Funny you should mention shredded cheese. I am home today waiting for a UPS pickup and decided to make a meatloaf. Because it has to be gluten free and preferrable low carb, I can't add any of the normal binders to hold it together. So I added some finely shredded cheese instead. It firms up the mixture much the same way that cracker or bread crumbs do. And as it melts while baking, it binds it all together. Plus, it has the added advantage of adding a lot of flavor. So, tasty, gluten free and low carb all rolled into one!
I am also never going to add a lot of carbs back into my diet. There are so many really tasty low carb foods that it's insane for me to keep eating something that makes me feel so bad.
Simple tapas plate for dinner tonight:
'Amber' plum tomatoes, lovely colour
Feta cheese stored in oak barrel (½ package)
Sliced red onion
What remained of a glass jar of green olives stuffed with anchovies
Some herbal salt sprinkled over it all
'Scientists identify novel mechanism by which ketogenic diet could delay effects of aging'
I do know from personal experience that intermittent fasting reduces inflammation, so this makes sense to me. I wish there was agreement as to how many grams of carbohydrate you can eat and still be in a ketogenic state.
