Another Week's Worth Of My Low-Carb Menu

After the tremendous feedback I received from posting a week's worth of my actual menu from when I lost 6 1/2 pounds on Regina Wilshire's omega-focused low-carb plan, I decided that perhaps I should post another week's worth of my low-carb menu for you.

I did lost another 3 pounds last week for a total of 9.5 pounds lost in the first two weeks on this "tweak" of my low-carb lifestyle. I haven't lost this much weight over two weeks since the early days of my original 180-pound low-carb weight loss in 2004.

Okay, so what about this past week? Here's the menu of what I ate.

First of all, my supplement intake did NOT change at all:

3 teaspoons of liquid multivitamin (no iron)
1 brick men's multivitamin (no iron)
200mg Co Q-10
200mcg Chromium Picolinate
250mg Acetyl L-Carnitine
1 brick B Complex Vitamins
6 tablets Shaklee Super Calcium Magnesium Plus
2 caplets Fibercon
2 softgels 1000mg each Flax Oil
2 softgels 1000mg each Fish Oil Concentrate

I again drank about a gallon and a half of water daily along with Splenda-sweetened soft drinks. During this new omega diet I have strictly refused to drink anything that contains aspartame in it at all. Splenda only!

Here is my second week's menu and exercise routine:

8:00AM - Atkins Shake

As you can see, there were some changes from my previous week's menu. There were days when I had special occasions and events where I simply had to choose from the foods that were available to me. When that happens, you adjust your eating schedule to fit with those times.

You may also notice that I had some huge gaps between meals and even survived on just one meal like I did on Sunday. I'm trying to listen more to my body to see if I really need to eat or not. If I'm satisfied on the fat and protein I am consuming, then why do I need to eat? The answer is I don't, so I won't. This menu resulted in a 3-pound weight loss for me, so I am pleased.

I definitely increased my calories this week and my vegetable consumption as well. I added back a few more low-carb dessert options that I enjoy and increased my nut and egg intake substantially.

Questions or comments anyone?

I'm glad you're listening to your body and eating when you're really hungry. I think that'll help cut down on your desire to snack, at least it did for me.

You know my position on the veggies and treats ;D

Out of curiosity, what kind of steak are you eating?

Hi Jimmy,

We love La Tortilla low carb wraps! But we have trouble finding them in the US. Where do you get them, or do you order directly?

We also enjoy the Trader Joe's low carb tortillas. No transfats, low carb, 50 cals, and very yummy.

I'm also a huge fan of the Subway Atkins wraps. Those are so satisfying, a great meal on the run.

Hey April,

I'm pretty lucky, I can get La Tortilla wraps at my local grocery store (I think they carry it JUST for me!), but you can also get them online from low-carb retailers like

I also enjoy the Subway wraps which used to be called Atkins wraps before the bankruptcy.

THANKS for writing!

Hey Rob,

I'm eating mostly sirloins and steakhouse strips. I do enjoy a good medium prime rib from time to time as well. I'm not too hip on T-bone steaks, though.

I'm not big on new yorks either. I think for the same price you get more bang for your buck getting a rib eye or top sirloin. Lately I've been getting cryovac meat at our local Smart & Final and cutting my steaks accordingly.

Wow! That's really fantastic Jimmy. Keep it up.

My favorite steak is rib-eye. I love filet mignon, cheeseburgers, duck, goose, ribs and chicken. I love chocolate but it's way at the bottom of the list. I'm actually more of a beef person than my husband. It's amusing sometimes in restaurants the looks we get from the waitresses/waiters when I order a huge rib-eye or filet and my husband orders fish or chicken. I think a lot of women love meat, beef, etc. but they have been brainwashed by the low-fat phobics into believing they don't.

How come no shirataki noodles in your diet plan? Just curious....

I ran out and they're hard to find ever since that magazine article about them. I went to an Asian market last night and they say, "No more shirataki for now...come back next month." But, trust me, I LOVE SHIRATAKI!!!
