One More Low-Carb Menu For You

People have been fascinated by the one-week low-carb menus I have been posting over the past couple of weeks (click here and here to see them). I decided to post one more week's worth of my low-carb menus for you since I started the intermittent fasting recommended by Dr. Mike Eades for this week. Perhaps I will post that menu next week as well.

Since I started on Regina Wilshire's omega-focused diet plan three weeks ago, I have lost in excess of 10 pounds and the scale is moving (I lost another pound last week). Yee haw! So, naturally, people are curious about what I am doing. For the third week in a row, here is my menu from this past week of what I actually ate.

Before I get into the foods I ate, here are my supplements:

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 drank lots of water and Splenda-sweetened soft drinks. Here was my menu and exercise routine from last week:

6:30PM - 3 tablespoons Naturally More peanut butter, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, Raspberry DaVinci syrup w/Splenda and Sweet Simplicity inside of a La Tortilla Factory wrap


I'm still paying very close attention to avoid maltitol, aspartame and caffeine as much as humanly possible. It's hard to find foods that don't contain these, but it is indeed possible. I added back a few more comfort products this week such as low-carb peanut butter and chocolates. For the time being until the FDA can figure out what's going on with the E. coli problem with spinach, I'm staying away from them although they are my favorite salad veggie. Any questions?

Are you consciously eating less than you used to?

Great question, Dave. The answer is no, but let me explain. What I have started doing more of in the past few weeks is listening to my body. If I'm not hungry, then why should I eat, right?

Before this new commitment to weight loss, I had allowed myself to eat sometimes even when I wasn't hungry or even close to hungry. THIS WAS NOT GOOD!

Being on this intermittent fasting this week has reminded me what REAL hunger is and has helped me realize I had not been listening to my body as well as I should.

If it means I'm eating less food and calories, then so be it. Perhaps that's why God made our bodies this way so we could keep our weight stable.

THANKS again for your EXCELLENT question!

I've not yet done the fasting, but I have been eating only when my body tells me to.

I've been alternating calories! One day I eat about 900-1000 cal, the next it's 1500 or higher. It's not intentional, but it's what my body is telling me to do.

I think it's great. I'm not hungry much, and when I am I eat what I want to (low carb and mostly natural of course).

Just wondering what brand, if any, you are eating of the vanilla caramel sugar-free pudding? It sounds delicious.

THANKS Joyceej! I'm getting a lot of requests about that, so I will blog about it tonight. It's a product called Carb Counters from with a little bit of my own razzle-dazzle to make it perfect for me. :) Check it out later on! THANKS again for your comments!
