    I hated that diet so much. I'd order like 10 double cheeseburger without the bun from mcdonalds. Still lost a lot of weight but what's the point if you're miserable...I honestly couldn't come up with any creative recipes for low carb...just slabs of meat.

    It's good you're not as restrictive as I was, that's no kind of life lol. Yeah I started on atkins but modified it so much to where I was getting really only maybe 5 grams of carbs a day...I did it fo over 2 years cheating less than a handful of times. Looked awesome physically and was in perfect health but it was so unsatisfying. Sorry I can't contribute anything worthwhile to your thread hah :/

    I eat very little sugar and refined grains, and rarely feel deprived. But it does involve a large amount of cooking on my part.

    http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/index.html
    This is a good site with low carb recipes. I especially like using cauliflower to replace rice and potatoes, like http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/mexican_rice.html and http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/just_li..._potatoes.html (but you don't need nearly as much cheese).

    http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ..._fb_revshr_001
    These are good tortillas for making quick wraps.

    Taco salad is one of the easiest low carb meals to make. Just lettuce, spiced ground beef, and your choice of ingredients--tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, etc.

    VANILLA ALMOND PROTEIN BAR
    1/3 cup Body Fortress whey protein powder, 1 scoop vanilla flavor
    1/2 ounce almonds, finely ground
    2 teaspoons coconut flour
    2 teaspoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
    3 teaspoons water

    Mix the first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Add the granular Splenda, if using. In another small bowl, mix the liquid Splenda, if using, with 2 teaspoons of the water. Add 2 teaspoons of the water to the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until it is as well mixed as possible. Add up to 1 more teaspoon of water if necessary and work this in with your hands. Don't be tempted to add more water no matter how dry it seems. The more water you add, the sticker the bar will be and the worse it will stick to your teeth. The dough will eventually come together when you firmly knead it by squeezing it into a ball in your hand. The consistency will be very stiff like modelling clay. Shape into a bar. This will keep pretty well at room temperature but I would keep it out of extreme heat.

    Makes 1 serving

    I have the opposite problem. I have to stick to lots of carbs & protein or else I'll slowly waste away. The problem is, I tend to dislike food high in carbohydrates. I also hate feeling stuffed.

    I eat whatever fatty foods I can, I just don't have a huge appetite & I feel sick easily. It never used to be this way. Maybe I'm depressed

Set foot in the gym for the 1st time yesterday going high protein for health reasons too.. want to gain mass..especially on my barely existant butt . Hoping my skin will improve too. Im scared I won't find clothes that fit if I drop weight.

    chop a packet of spinach in ribbons
    place the spinach in a bowl, cover, and cook in the microwave on high for 3 minutes.

    I'm jealous of you skinny-ass bitches. I usually can't stop stuffing my face...

    I've been trying to protein load with snacks after exercising - usually I eat edamame beans, sushi, canned flavoured tuna and eggs (mmm eggs!). It works quite well for me but I put on muscle incredibly easily (fat, too).

    Also maybe look into creatine supplements? A lot of bodybuilders use it, and while I know you're not trying to look like them, maybe your body type needs that sort of treatment to get to "normal". You lucky freaks, you.

    It usually takes about 3 weeks for the body to adapt to low carb diet. During that period you will feel a little tired. Then all of a sudden, boom, things change. I was on the paleo diet for about 3 months. I lost some weight (even though I didn't want to) and my blood sugar became very stable. The feeling of being hungry in the stomach, (not in the head) was a new experience. Also, not experiencing blood sugar rush after a meal was something new, and realizing I don't need it. I didn't eat any bread, rice, pasta, potatoes during that period. Lots of fruit, berries and non-starchy root vegetables, fish, meat, nuts. Big amounts of food. I must have gotten more vitamins than ever before during these 3 months. Unfortunately it was kindof expensive. But I think this is the way we should eat. The body is fully capable of keeping the blood sugar stable during the day, even without regular meals, provided it gets the right kind of food.

    Thats what I'm experiencing. Even feeling full I still feel kind of emptiness because I'm not getting a blood sugar spike. It's nice though, before I often felt sick and stuffed after a greasy carb meal. I used to replace a lot of solid food with chocolate and coffee throughout the day. I just need to hold out & not give in to cravings for sugar. I put together a food pyramid thats similar to the paleo diet exept it allows non fat milk, and everything else in small amounts, towards the top.

    Also maybe look into creatine supplements?
    Some people are allergic to it, besides it depends on what you want to achieve, not just throw your money away. Carnitine instead of Creatine for start, I think.

    I've been trying to protein load with snacks after exercising
    You eat 2 hours before exercise and you do not drink anything prior and during, only after.

    And I'm jealous of your ability to easily gain muscle My body doesn't match my face. I know this sounds really odd, but my face looks like it should belong on a thicker curvier body, rather than the delicate waif look. I have long arms & legs, and a long torso, so extra weight actually looks better on me.

    I've got back into my weight training and I've been drinking the protein shakes every other day; it's really helping. People are starting to notice a difference! I'm gaining weight & my chicken legs are becoming really muscular. I love it, haha.

    Steamed Spinach

    Steam fresh spinach in a stove top steamer until soft. Add sautéed garlic & butter. Mmm.

    Eat as a side with baked salmon & boiled patatoes.

    I think my exercise is too aerobic for that, I'd probably pass out from dehydration... I've been trying to eat before as well but it's pretty difficult. My aim isn't so much putting on muscle as much as building strength/flexibility (hopefully the flexibility part stops me from turning into a man, haha).

    Anyway, I had a really good soy and cannellini bean salad today. I think it was just blanched soy and cannellini beans, baby spinach, finely chopped onion, minced parsley and a splash of olive oil and vinegar.

    I made this last night and put it on pasta, but it's pretty good just on its own. So maybe a good recipe for people who have carb-eaters in their household?

    Tuna Pasta Sauce

    - 1 large can tuna (or 2 snack-sized cans)
    - 1 can Campbells condensed tomato soup (pasta sauce would be better, but I didn't have that)
    - 2 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
    - 1/2 can water
    - 1 onion, roughly chopped
    - 2 cloves garlic, minced
    - 1 healthy splash of red wine
    - salt and pepper to taste
    - olive oil
    - 1 pinch dried chilli (optional)
    - handful each of capers and olives, couple anchovies (optional - I didn't have any, but I think it'd taste better)

    1. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until soft (if your tuna comes in oil, use the tuna oil instead)
    2. Add tomato soup, water and tomatoes, stir
    3. Add red wine, simmer for around 5 minutes until the sauce is a nice consistency
    4. Add tuna, break it up with your cooking utensil of choice into meaty fibres, mix thoroughly
    5. Add anchovies, olives, capers, pepper, chilli if using. Salt to taste. Simmer 2 minutes, serve with parmesan and all those other pasta-y things

    Sweet potatoes! They're high in carbs but also fiber, which you get to subtract from the total carb count (or so I've heard). I think that's one of the best high-nutrition foods you can eat.

    Why low carb? Balanced meals are the way to go. Our body breaks meals down to carbs and protein; it needs both. Just eat complex carbs and not simple sugars like table sugar; things like grains, whole wheat grain pasta; watch your calorie intake and try to eat less. Eat a lot of collard greens because it has inulin that the good bacteria in your guts feed on and make you healthy.

    6 servings of 2 kebabs each.

    Ingredients:

    •32 oz. beef, cut up into chunks. Normally I use sirloin steak and cut it myself - this time I used "stew meat" Worked great, less work, and cheaper!
    •2-3 zucchini squash, cut into thick rounds
    •2-3 yellow squash, cut into thick rounds
    •1 (12 oz) package of cherry tomatoes
    •1 (16 oz) package of button mushrooms
    •1 medium onion, cut into chunks
    •1 bell pepper, cut into squares

    Marinade

    •1 1/3 cups of Bragg's Liquid Aminos (may sub Soy Sauce)
    •2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    •1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
    •2-3 Tablespoons of minced garlic from a jar
    •2 Tablespoon of Lemon Pepper
    •1 Tablespoon of Crushed Red Pepper
    •1 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper

    Put meat and cut veggies in a very large bowl. Add all of the marinade ingredients and toss well. cook with charcoal or wood, just grill on hot coals.

    Carbohydrate is broken down into sugar by your body. Proteins are broken down into amino acids, various studies have proven that protein is the macro-nutrient that increases satiety, protein helps to stop over-eating. Calorie restriction diets cause yo-yo weight fluctuation, not worth it if you ask me. If you eat a lot of carbs.. you'll raise your blood sugar & store fat. I do realise the importance of high GI fruit & veg + wholegrains. thats why I said low carb instead of no carb.

    Those look amazing. I think I'm going to try those tonight but without the stick and without the grill...sort of a stir fry.

    Eating all of that red meat isn't good for you. We were adapted to eat seasonally, accordingly to what the land provided in season and when we didn't have enough to eat we could then eat meat, but our staple diet isn't 75%meat and veggies, it's more veggies.

    I ate red meat every single day for 2 years and had every blood/chloresterol/blood pressure test known to mankind and I'm as healthy as you can get.
