Back In The Habit

To my joy, the transition back to my usual breakfast/dinner eating schedule was a breeze! My delicious breakfast of porterhouse steak and bacon kept me going for TWELVE HOURS:

I indulged my desire for a large quantity of meat by ordering the mixed grill platter at Kouzina, where we ignored most of the carbs (the beau still nibbles on the white crap more than I'd like) but demolished the meat promptly!

It feels good to be back on a mostly meat way of eating, although - due to popular demand - I will keep my food options a bit more open in order to spend more time developing recipes for you to try! Especially with Christmas coming - there will be lots of primal holiday treats in the mix!

The top picture looks tasty. Is that bacon and ribs?

Porterhouse steak and bacon. Thanks for pointing out my oversight! Man, with that and the missing title, I'm amazed I managed to post at all! :)

Hello: Hey can you get me a good low-carb recipe for a dessert for thanksgiving? like for example maybe a low-carb cheesecake or something like that? And I think you are right, once you are accustomed to eating meat and no carbohydrates, it is real hard to go back to eating more carbohydrates even if they carbohydrates from green vegetables.


Jezwyn said...

Oh yes, I mastered the low-carb cheesecake repertoire before discovering the healthier primal lifestyle.

My Easter cheesecake recipe - I would now use whey or egg protein, and erythritol or stevia as a sweetener, you could try using honey etc as well - http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=589852

My go-to primal dessert - Fruit & Nut Crumble - http://girlgoneprimal.blogspot.com/2009/06/recipe-fruit-nut-crumble.html

My baked mini-cheesecakes - again, I'd use a different sweetener now, and mess with flavourings - http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=496139

The cheesecake I made for my birthday - choc-mint! http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=543298

Fudge! http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=527201

Hope that helps. I'll be looking into some primal-friendly desserts as Christmas approaches, hopefully avoiding dairy where possible too, so keep an eye out! :)

Hi, yesterday i ate some green vegetables but i felt a bit weird, so i am going back to eating chicken for lunch without any vegetables.

i don't eat nuts but it's still low in carbohydrates (like 10 grams of carbohydrates a day and moderate in fats, i don't eat nuts because nuts are high in calories).

The diet is like this:


A high protein pancake
1 cup of egg-beaters
1 1/2 scoop of whey protein powder

Mix ingredients and cook just like a pancake


15 oz of baked chicken


A high protein pancake
1 1/2 cup of egg-beaters
2 1/2 scoop of whey protein powder

Snack between meal if i feel real hungry: Pieces of chicken, turkey or meat

I think I have asked you this before, but I don't remember the answer - how overweight are you? What are your goals?

I'm not one to bash anyone's eating plan, cos if it works for you, then great, but your plan looks very low in basic nutrition. Just changing from using egg-beaters (ew) to real, pastured eggs would help instantly. Mixing up your lunch meat of chicken with red meat sometimes would be an improvement. Why are you so sensitive about calories? Your dietary fat levels seem very low - is your chicken eaten with the skin, or cooked in oil?

At the very least, are you taking a broad spectrum multivitamin and fish oil for omega-3s?

What amuses me about your diet though is that the traditional low-carb stereotype is to "avoid white foods", and yet your day is still full of them :)

Hello Jezwyn and friends: Thank you for your answer. Don't worry about bashing my diet, in fact that's what I am here for, i mean to learn more about the right way to follow a low-carb diet.

By the way, what do you exactly mean by white foods? Because the foods i eat in my diet seem white like chicken and the whey protein powder, but they are not foods high in carbohydrates.

So i don't exactly understand what did you mean by the white foods i included in the diet that i am following.

Jezwyn: Oh by the way, i am not real overweight at all. I am 6'2", and i weight about 170 lbs. My goal weight is around 158 to 160 lbs.


Jezwyn said...

Chicken and whey powder are white - they are white foods. Yet they are indeed low-carb. That's why it's ironic that while the stereotype of 'cutting out white foods' to be low-carb is so clearly refuted by your diet. :)

Wow, our stats almost match! I'm 170lb-ish, wanting to get down around 155lb cos I am a little shorter than you (5'10") and a big-boned female.

How many calories are you consuming per day?
