_dark rye ryvita has 6.9g carbs per slice, 10gs is this high? For after the 10 weeks._

MulledwineGless Thu 03-Jan-13 19:55:02

Novelty - I eat pHilly a lot. The only issue can be some people stall when eating too much dairy

The night sky- I have similar at work if I forget to take anything, with bag of salad. The trouble is it is quite processed and can contain sugars with the marinade

BIWIshYouAMerryChristmas Thu 03-Jan-13 19:55:08

thenightsky - oil is good! It's only cooking with olive oil that isn't so great. But I still cook with it, mainly because the alternative - coconut oil - is so expensive. And, personally, I would avoid that Turkey stuff. Just look at the ingredients list!

cocolelpew - yes, that's too high!

NoveltySlippers - not really - it's just cream cheese. Check the ingredients though. I bought some Sainsbury's Full Fat Cream Cheese yesterday, which I think is their equivalent of Philly - and it just lists milk.

Mulled it was about three years. I wasn't particularly strict, but didn't find it hard to eat well this way and then occasionally enjoy something I'd baked or a pizza out with friends and then slot back into the maintenance WOE. I felt very balanced, I'd say, overall.

Thanks for the peanut butter info Caramel. I dont have a Sainsburies near here, but I may do an online shop & stock on their PB (amongst other things ha ha not a shop of just PB as tempting as that is grin)

Doshusallie Thu 03-Jan-13 20:00:11

The night sky I would eat this no problem.

I also eat full fat cream cheese.

NoveltySlippers Thu 03-Jan-13 20:01:16

Mulled & BIWI - hurrah! I love it.

Right, that's going in the shopping basket. <click>

MulledwineGless Thu 03-Jan-13 20:02:08

Starfish - Ive been on this for 8 months now and would like to lose another stone by April so that will be a year. After that I can't see me going back to high carb again. Even after 2 proper days of LC I feel so much better although struggling with the lurgy. Gluten intolerance is in the family my aunt, mums cousin and other family members so I think I prefer to stay gluten free even if have other carbs when in maintenance

Today:
B: Egg and bacon
L: Nothing - was up very late so Breakfast was at lunch time
D: Mushroom baked with butter and garlic topped with stilton served with green beans and pak choi

Slipped up and ate 6 after eights blush but at least they're all gone now.

Will make sure I have three meals tomorrow I promise.

Lots of water, drinking it hot now as find cold a bit miserable in winter.

NoveltySlippers Thu 03-Jan-13 20:22:43

Oooh <excited face>

Just found great blog post - apparently low carbing keeps you looking young too? (Guess it's all those sugars you're not eating.) As if I needed more reasons to try this WOE. Yippee!

prettybird Thu 03-Jan-13 20:27:49

Marking place. I'd added my name to the list towards the end of the old thread but it doesn't seem to have transferred. I'm back on the iPod so it's difficult for me to C&P - can someone else add my name please?

sybilfaulty Thu 03-Jan-13 20:29:05

Just adding myself in.

Philly and the like very good for making sauces. Thin with water and add cheese, mustard etc then use in lasagne, moussaka, cauliflower cheese etc. delicious !

MulledwineGless Thu 03-Jan-13 20:29:21

Love that blog! Have to say I have had more compliments in last couple of months at work since I turned 40 than in the whole of my career so there is some truth in it

Trying that again, actually adding myself this time blush

Wilding Thu 03-Jan-13 20:31:31

Just adding myself now I'm not on the phone!

Have been surprisingly unhungry today although I did just eat a piece of white chocolate blush

Really not helpful still having Christmas stuff round the house, I must try and get rid of it!

cross posted so added myself again

marking place

feeling crap

I feel 'fuggy'. and deprived. I'd really like a wee chocolate. Just a wee one. And a wine. Just a massive one. sad

encyclogirl Thu 03-Jan-13 20:36:18

Hi all, I joined this thread a year ago and lost 2 stone. Kept it off all year, but gained half a stone back during the party season, so it's back to bootcamp I go.

Good luck everyone!

TaffyandTeenyTaffy Thu 03-Jan-13 20:36:54

OK, so today I have had...
B - bacon and fried egg
L - tuna mayo salad
D - belly pork, mushrooms, steamed cauliflower and brocoli
2 x black coffees (resisted the temptation of the coffee cart!),
1.5 litres of water

Need to have some more water tonight - but does this look ok-ish?
