Right then. I'm going for it again.
But could someone explain why it worked the first time, then when I tried again, it was really hard and didn't? I didn't get withdrawal, it just wasn't going anywhere. My problem is I'm knackered and my joints ache all the time now, which makes me 'need' chocolate etc for instant energy and to basically be able to function. This is Not Good.
Can I be really whiney and have a lot of handholding and stick beating this time pretty please? I'll even buy some scales this time maybe

Well, NotTwit, if you were eating chocolate, that might possibly just explain why it wasn't working! You don't need chocolate, and you don't need 'instant' energy. Once you are ketogenically-adapted, i.e. your body has switched from burning carbs to burning fat, your energy will all come from fat - so if you're eating plenty of fat there isn't an issue.

But yes, there will be plenty of hand-holding and, if you really want, there will be lots of beating with big sticks! grin

BIWI Thu 26-Dec-13 23:25:34

But seriously, what is your medical problem that means that your joints ache all the time? And are you taking medication for this?

FrantasticO Thu 26-Dec-13 23:28:20

Me too...if I can step away from the carbs
14-21lbs to lose, not happy.

Excited for this! I'll be at least a week in though by then, starting as soon as I get some new scales!

The rules are on some of the other boot camp threads, right? Will I have to give up rice? I will, won't i? Oh god...

NotTwit Thu 26-Dec-13 23:33:49

Ooh no, I wasn't eating it then. It wasn't working right, I felt crap etc < insert the usual excuses> and gave in.
I don't think I have a medical problem, I don't get enough sleep thanks to 2y/o and am overweight. Might be worth getting checked out after bootcamp if Things don't improve though. Which of course they will.

Yes yes to The Stick. (And hand holding)

zgaze Thu 26-Dec-13 23:33:52

Me! I want / need to lose 2 stone by my wedding in October, did LC before and got on really well with it (but then had two babies and it all went to pot again), hoping it's as easy this time.

AthelstaneTheUnready Thu 26-Dec-13 23:43:23

Pseudo - you should be fine, as long as you are getting your carbs from veg and salad, and you aren't depriving yourself of food. And you will be able to ask any question that you want to! I usually start a separate thread for questions, just because the main chat thread can move so quickly. But ask anything you want - and if you don't get an answer, just send me a PM

So you all know, once we have all your names, the lovely WilleWaggleDagger will set up the new spreadsheet, and you can all enter your starting weight, in the Spreadsheet of Fabulousness.

If you don't want to admit to your actual weight, you start with 100. And then for every pound you lose, you drop one point.

PseudoSanta Fri 27-Dec-13 00:05:36

Thanks BIWI, when you say veg and salad does that mean I do the full bootcamp or do I add extra veggies in?

BIWI Fri 27-Dec-13 00:08:41

Do the full Bootcamp, but just make sure that you are getting all/most of your carbs from vegetables and salad - i.e. the rest of your diet is unprocessed protein (meat/fish). Please don't worry about calories, and make sure that you're eating plenty of fat.

BIWI Fri 27-Dec-13 00:09:34

You may want to consider starting with Bootcamp Light, rather than full on Bootcamp, i.e. you can allow yourself nuts/seeds and some berries.

I am rubbish at keeping up with these things, but this has to be done, I'm as large as I was just after I had DD... so please get that big stick out, BIWI!

I can't believe how dim I am. shock blush

StuntNun Fri 27-Dec-13 08:59:14

PseudoSanta I started low carbing when my LO was seven months and still mainly breastfed so I started straight on to Bootcamp Light. I also took a supplement (Pregnacare Breastfeeding) as I had concerns that my nutritional status might suffer due to the demands of breastfeeding - he was feeding frequently at that point. The biggest problem I had was the carb flu hit me hard and I think that's because between dinner and breakfast I might have breastfed my LO three times so I recommend keeping a low carb snack such as some nuts on your bedside table for the first week and eating them before you even get out of bed.

NotTwit Fri 27-Dec-13 09:10:51

Re the bfing I first did bootcamp when I was still pretty much ebf babyTwit. I was also taking the supplements and got really bad carb flu, but it didn't seem to affect my supply or quality, although he was about 6/7 months old so starting solids.

It's easier to keep up when we're all in it together Pseudo so I would say yes to waiting until the 13th. If you want to minimise the effect of carb flu then you could cut down on sugar and consider reducing your intake of other carbs, e.g. smaller quantities of pasta, rice and potatoes. On the other hand you may want to have a carb-fest before going cold turkey. This WOE (way of eating) is much easier when you can avoid temptation, particularly in the first couple of weeks when even walking down the crisps aisle in the supermarket may set off a carb craving don't even think about the smell of toast! After a while of low carbing I have found that I'm not so interested in biscuits, cakes etc although I do occasionally get sucked in by the temptation of a hot chocolate. In my case I was addicted to carbs, particularly crisps, chips and chocolate, and once I broke the addiction I stopped getting the reward (I assume a dopamine high) of satisfying the craving. So for example if I were to eat a doughnut or a curry chip I would still enjoy it but I wouldn't get the 'oh god that's amazing' feeling that I now realise was my addiction to carbs and my blood sugar levels skyrocketing.

daisychicken Fri 27-Dec-13 13:06:06

Athelstane I've had a few Christmas treats... Mince pie x 3, handful of chocs, 1 roast pot & 1 parsnip (I'm keeping track! wink ) and my chin is covered in painful spots and the skin on my face is really dry & sore..... tis carbs/sugar... sad

I ate a whole box. And those en croute canape thingies. And wine. And Grissini. It was lovely while it lasted <wistful> but yes, Daisy, the sugar makes my skin flakey too. And now I'm full, bloated, feel a bit sick still, and yet am ravenous confused.

Never joined a blog before but feel the need to get support from others with this radical change. Read Briffa's book and it makes sense but need to put it into action, also taking into account children's meals and diabetic husband who put me on to this way of eating in the first place.

When I did it I was really really addicted o carbs, so I had the carb flu, but some people don't get it.
If you're not sure,why not go on bootcamp lite this time, then full on bootcamp next time? I know I felt happier knowing he wasn't t totally ebf, (although mainly) IYSIM?
You're in a good position time wise, as you could gradually reduce your sugar before we felt started, I'm going to. I think calories are more important for breast milk, so this woe is great.
Whilst reading up I read that marathon runners (who frequently go into ketosis) had no issues.

I've jus remembered why it was hard last time. I had my fungus and ended p taking piriton so I cold sleep. Ugh. Lol.

zonkin Fri 27-Dec-13 14:57:16

Lurked on the last few bootcamps and did it half heartedly. But this time I'm serious.

Can I tag along please!
joined last year (was OTTMummA) did really well for a while but fell of the wagon spectacularly and put the weight back on.
Its been a funny year, but it has ended on a high, we have bought a house, our financial situation has vastly improved and I find I am more relaxed about life and am ready to start looking after myself properly.

Can someone please add me - don't know how to copy and paste on tablet. Tried it last time and thought it was good but just didnt have the willpower.will combine it with dry January to cut out the booze which is my downfall.
Dh is, for the first time in his life, interested enough to try and lose weight. He is very very overweight and diabetic. Is this a good way of eating for diabetics.

projectbabyweight Fri 27-Dec-13 18:20:36

Yes I think it's means to be great for diabetics smile

yes it's good for diabetics (as carbs are sugar) but they must avoid ketosis as far as I understand it this can be very dangerous.

I'd like to join please. I've been doing Harcombe since 3/12 so have hopefully had my carb-flu already.

This is a very good way of eating for diabetics - although you do need to make sure that you let your GP/medical team know that you're eating this way.

And ketosis isn't dangerous. Ketosis merely means 'fat burning'. It's ketoacidosis which diabetics need to avoid, which is different altogether.

Rytonrose Fri 27-Dec-13 20:33:56

Just joined Mumsnet as I had heard about the boot camp, you are famous!
I am going to give it a go as I am sick of all the junk we eat.

BIWI Fri 27-Dec-13 20:41:48

Famous you say?!
<preens>

Rytonrose Fri 27-Dec-13 20:53:09

Absolutely, preening is a given you should go for it! Can not work out how to add myself to your list on my ipad. Help please?

I'm on a tablet so can't cut and paste - if someone could add me that would be fab or I will do it myself when I next get to a desktop.

Thanks thanks

BIWI Fri 27-Dec-13 21:45:37

OK. Here's a bit of a heads up:

For the fortnight starting 13 January we will not be eating or drinking any:

pasta
rice
bread
flour
potatoes
sugar
chocolate
fruit
alcohol

We will all weigh in on 13 January, and on the spreadsheet you will also find a list of allowed veg.

You should be focussing on getting your carbs from vegetables and salad - have a look at the list of allowed veg, and you should be focussing on those that are 3g carbs per 100g.

You will be allowed to drink tea and coffee, but be aware that milk is quite carby so - keep the number of cups per day as low as you can; consider drinking it black; consider switching to cream instead of milk.

No diet drinks, or other drinks sweetened with artificial sweeteners.

It will be hard. That's why it's called Bootcamp!

But you will see instant results. The more weight you have to lose, the more you are likely to lose in these two weeks - but some people have lost as much as a stone in the first fortnight.

HOWEVER you should also prepare yourself for 'carb flu'. Carbs are addictive, and cutting down this much can result in withdrawal symptoms. You may feel as if you're coming down with flu. If this happens to you, drink plenty of water, keep your fat levels up and make sure that you're getting plenty of sodium, magnesium and potassium in your diet. So - salt, salmon, avocado, spinach and full fat yoghurt are all good foods.

And you will have to totally re-think your ideas as to what is/isn't healthy. Low carb means high fat. So butter, cream and cheese are all good choices. Choose fatty cuts of meat - and enjoy them!

AthelstaneTheUnready Fri 27-Dec-13 21:52:31

Slight hitch - I haven't any scales. Do you have a measurement column on the spreadsheet, or is that not helpful?

earlymidlifecrisis Fri 27-Dec-13 21:53:01

BIWI think I x-posted and missed Bannedyellowsheep and *tenementfunste off the end of my list... apologies to you all must be the Port

HumphreyCobbler Fri 27-Dec-13 22:00:42

I am in but don't weigh so won't add my name to the list/spreadsheet

really looking forward to it

will ease into it gently in the week or so before it officially starts

Hi I would love to join. I followed idiot proof diet 3 years ago and lost 40kgs from 123kg down to 83 size 22 down to 12/14.
I still follow low carb but have crept back up 8kgs in the past 2 years since starting to work fulltime again and not having as much exercise time.
I am still in size 14 but definately not a 12 anymore and some of my 14s are feeling tight. I need to cut choc and alcohol and nuts! and up my water.

I'll add my name to the list after I manage to name change. This username was for the last Bootcamp.

DuggiWontSleep Sat 28-Dec-13 08:43:44

Count me in too pls! I can't copy and paste on my iPhone so pls somebody add my name to the list. Quick qu BIWI-I have an under active thyroid and generally feel very tired, which when coupled with fat and a toddler is not great. Will LC be ok for me? I tend to give up when dieting as fi can start to feel dizzy and extremely tired hmm

BIWI Sat 28-Dec-13 09:48:19

Duggie - I dont know about that - I'm not a doctor nor am I medically trained. But I'll see what I can find out for you.

sybilfaulty Sat 28-Dec-13 10:00:04

I'm in! Only had 3 days of real indulgence over Christmas but still feeling untoned and out of condition. Could do with knocking off another stone really to get to where I want to be. This is a great opportunity to do it. Hurray!

Thanks for organising BIWI. It's going to be a good one, I can feel it.

Please can someone kind add me to the list as I can't seem to c and p on this phone. Many thanks

Thanks chipping!

Someone asked about if this was a permanent change - yes! In the long run you will probably choose to eat low carb, but not necessarily as low as bootcamp. I honestly will never eat the same way as I used to. This way of eating has transformed my life, my diabetic control, my blood results are amazeballs - having been a bit rubbish previously and I know for me it is the healthiest way to go.

Dreamingofcakeallnight Sat 28-Dec-13 10:06:45

Me too!!!

HumphreyCobbler Sat 28-Dec-13 10:07:14

Gosh I AM looking forward to being thin again <thinking positive>

Baby Cobbler is nearly three months, I did six weeks of no wheat, no sugar when he was six weeks old but then lapsed heavily at the beginning of December. This time I am going to go for proper ketosis as nothing I can see seems to state this is incompatible with breastfeeding.

LittlePudding1 Sat 28-Dec-13 11:41:26

Please can you add me in too, apologies can't copy and paste from this tablet. I followed the Dukan before Christmas but couldn't maintain it for longer than 3 weeks so am going to give the Harcombe a try in January.Really need to lose about a stone and a half.

BIWI Sat 28-Dec-13 11:49:17

Duggie

Are you on medication at the moment? How much do you weigh now and how tall are you? And have you talked to your GP about losing weight?

BIWI Sat 28-Dec-13 11:49:59
BIWI Sat 28-Dec-13 11:57:43

This is a really interesting thread - which shows that it's a pretty complicated issue

Duggie I'm not happy to make a recommendation to you, because it goes way, way, way beyond my level of knowledge. It looks as if low carbing would be safe, but I wouldn't be happy about you starting to low carb without you talking it through with your doctor first.

BerylStreep Sat 28-Dec-13 12:02:16

Hello all - count me in - this time I am actually going to do it, rather than pissing about.

DuggiWon'tSleep Sorry, I know this isn't a discussion thread - but I am hypo too, and active on the healthunlocked thyroid board. Low carbing is seen as an excellent diet option for most of us, there has been a lot of success with it.

BIWI Sat 28-Dec-13 13:35:50

Thanks, Gatorade. Do you have any links that you could post, just in case there is anyone else with similar issues/concerns?

DuggiWontSleep Sat 28-Dec-13 13:41:29

BIWI-yes I'm on medication for it and blood tests all show that it is well controlled. I think tiredness is mainly due to lack of sleep-toddler still wakes during then night sad I have a doctors appt on Monday so will speak to him about low carbing. Thank you for the responses BIWI and thank you for this thread smile

BIWI Sat 28-Dec-13 14:01:37

Be prepared for an anti-low carbing view! Might be worth having a look at Gatorade's board and seeing what others in your situation are saying about low carbing? Give you a bit more 'ammunition' before you talk to the GP. It might also be a good idea to print out the Bootcamp rules to show him/her, to make sure that they understand what it's all about.

BIWI Sat 28-Dec-13 14:03:04

Bootcamp rules

Here's a link in case you haven't got them!

WhomessweetWhomes Sat 28-Dec-13 14:08:17

I'm in (again). Started the last bootcamp, lost weight dramatically, stalled, gave up. Have half-heartedly tried to get back on the waggon since but failed to do so properly. I am now utterly convinced that lc is the way, but need the strength and support to get on with it again. (I'm Holmessweetholmes, still under my not-so-cunning Dr Who name change.)

HandsOffMyGazBaz Sat 28-Dec-13 14:08:48

Can you add me? I have great plans in my head to lose weight for my sons communion this year. I have the exercise regime down, just need a had with the grub!

barmaid Sat 28-Dec-13 14:26:07

Please can I join too! Three stone to say goodbye to forever!

AthelstaneTheUnready Sat 28-Dec-13 16:11:36

No nuts! shock

Right, I'm also a woman who likes to do her homework - where can I read up on what's good/bad and why?

ariadnestar Sat 28-Dec-13 17:42:14

Ready for another go - done well in the past, but I faltered a bit at the last bootcamp. Looking forward to getting back to feeling good!

duggi from experience I didn't describe it as a 'low carb diet' when first discussing with my diabetes team. I said I was going to focus my meals on vegetables and protein and try to avoid refined carbs. Over time as my blood sugars came down and stabilised (matter of weeks) I then started referring to it as low carb and that seemed to work. Previously any mention of ''low carb diet' appeared to set all sorts of panic off, but I know my diabetes team now think it is brilliant!

Just to be clear I didn't lie about anything, just was wary of how I described it if that makes sense!!!

GatoradeMeBitch Sat 28-Dec-13 18:56:50

Unfortunately the healthunlocked board has changed recently, and I couldn't find the info on thyroid disorders and no carb/paleo, but I do know that many hypothyroid people have had success on it.

But word of warning - drcate.com/going-low-carb-too-fast-may-trigger-thyroid-troubles-and-hormone-imbalance/ it may be best for people with thyroid issues to 'warm up' by reducing carbs in the two weeks before the diet starts? I'm planning to be careful with my diet from 1st Jan, then go hardcore with the rest of you on 13th.

Sorry Humphrey I missed your post about LCing and breastfeeding. I have been LCing since June when my LO was 7 months and we're still going strong - no issues with supply at all. My research suggested taking a supplement to maintain your nutritional status while combining LCing and breastfeeding so I take Pregnacare Breastfeeding.

Nope. Neither of them should! (That said, is your DH type 1 or type 2?)

I'm starting on Wednesday though, and doing 2 weeks extra bootcamp, because I feel like a hot mess.

I did this at the same time last year, and felt better than I ever have in my life; and it was SO easy! It all went to pot when I started a different regime combined with hardcore CV workouts, weirdly!

Whatever, I'm back and I'm not straying again.

ThermoLobster Sun 29-Dec-13 21:17:00

I am in. Had a half hearted attempt before xmas, felt loads better, lost about a stone, totally lapsed over xmas, and feel dreadful, tired, bloated and fat! Can't seem to copy and paste on tablet. Pls can someone add me?

Me too please! Thanks BIWI! Been trying to maintain after last bootcamp and stay mainly on it (though lots of nuts, cheese and dark chocolate!) but will be good to get back on straight and narrow and see if I can shift last stone or so!

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Sun 29-Dec-13 22:43:36

DementedMa - I started low carbing because of my diabetes (T2). Last Jan my HbA1C was 9.3 - they wanted me on Metformin, statins, bp meds etc - I didn't want any of that so I started low carbing and it was 5.8 in April, 5.3 in July, 5.3 in Nov. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

By the way, my Diabetes Nurse is hopeless, she backs the NHS guidelines to the hilt, but declares me her 'star' patient despite thinking low carbing is not the right way to eat - quite baffling. There is plenty of support for low carbing on the diabetes sites though.

ChippingInLovesChristmasLights Sun 29-Dec-13 22:44:57

Heggarty sad Stupid thing to ask anyone not actually pushing a baby out of their fanjo!!

ThermoLobster Mon 30-Dec-13 08:06:37

Please can someone add me?

dementedma I also low carb to control my type 2 diabetes. My ha1bc when I fell pregnant in August/September was 43 which was amazing! My cholesterol has lowered too and I've lost weight - my diabetes team were fairly supportive and just asked to monitor my bloods every three months initially and now back to my usual 9 monthly reviews.

Pleaseandthankyou Mon 30-Dec-13 08:37:49

Me too please!

I have been overdoing the turkey sandwiches

BIWI Mon 30-Dec-13 09:39:36

dementedma - it's important that you discuss low carbing with your DH's medical team, especially if he is already taking medication for his diabetes.

There is a lot of controversy about low carbing and diabetes - even Diabetes UK doesn't fully endorse it as a WOE see here

And as ChippingIn has very eloquently reported over the last year, it can be quite difficult and disheartening if your medical team aren't supporting you - even when the results are positive!

Dr John Briffa, writer of "Escape the Diet Trap", which is really worth reading, has this to say about Diabetes UK's advice on nutrition.

Mary1972 Mon 30-Dec-13 09:55:22

Also worth buying the US book Sugar Nation which is about diabetes and diet. I enjoyed it.

SarahBeenysBumblingApprentice Mon 30-Dec-13 10:07:03

Having read Volek and Phinney in the run up to starting bootcamp, I would suggest that Diabetes UK are hedging their bets regarding long term outcomes due to lack of good quality trials. I actually read that as a cautious endorsement.

The main issue they don't address is satiety and the psychology of dieting, which of course are two factors which make a diet workable in real life.

It's worth reading the eating academy blog as well.

(disclaimer - I have done no literature searches myself, I'm regurgitating the books! grin )

Seri77 Mon 30-Dec-13 10:24:06

Could you add me please? On ipad and can't work out how to copy the list.

I've got Briffa to read, will have groceries delivered to avoid temptation (came home with Danish pastry and ice cream today shock) and Im going to meal plan ready for 13 Jan.

Fortunately my husband is very supportive and a big fan of meat/fish and vegetables. Could do with some soup recipes. I love soup but always seem to make it with sweet potatoes or pumpkin.

After a December of boozy carby twatdom, I am sooooooooooo ready for bootcamp. blush I'm going to namechange and then will add myself to the list. Great to see lots of familiar names. [waves] smile

LittleMissDisorganized Mon 30-Dec-13 13:54:11

Me too please. I am disabled, more so by surgery in November and I am STILL in plaster and wheelchair bound. I have put on loads of weight largely due to not being able to eat right for my immobility (ie. eat less since I move less).
I am waiting to start til I can at least walk, even if it's in a walking cast, because immobility and being housebound and not being in control of the cooking = impossible.
I have DH's support but he's not joining in. No-one else I know will go for this but I have been devouring reading about it and I'm ready. Hoping my cast is off on the 8th so I'll be ready for the 13th. Thank you for this, really am ready.
I'm a baker, for others mostly - always been my downfall when trying to lose weight in the past.

Big essay, but I'm in:

<resists temptation to alphabetise the list>

ImATotJeSuisUneTot Mon 30-Dec-13 14:52:32

Im going to re-read Briffa I think, I found it a real eye-opener last time, a re-fresh wont do any harm.

Ive started today - ive been off the wagon for a little while, and tbh i've had enough of feeling this naff. I KNOW low-carbing works wonders for me, carb creep+xmas shouldnt be an excuse!

MaryzBoychildCheeszuzCrizpz Mon 30-Dec-13 16:16:07

Hellooooo everyone.

January 13th, I see. Does that mean I need to eat like a horse for the next two weeks, so that I can lose lots of lots of lovely weight when I start?

Or have I missed the point?

[arf]

I'm in, btw.

MaryzBoychildCheeszuzCrizpz Mon 30-Dec-13 16:17:55

Oh, go on with the alphabetising, LittleMiss, then I'll shove myself in the middle somewhere grin

BIWI Mon 30-Dec-13 16:40:54

No need to worry about alphabetisation! The lovely Willie sorts all that out when she sets up the Spreadsheet of Fabulousness!

StuntNun Mon 30-Dec-13 16:55:11

LittleMiss you need to sidle up to Crabby and ask her for her low carb crumble recipe. She has cunning ways with ground almonds...

CrabbyChristmasBottom Mon 30-Dec-13 17:01:20

I'm looking forward to my almond based tarts and crumbles, Stunt - I haven't made any for ages! Now I just have to finish all the sticky toffee puddings my mum bought me for Christmas first... shock

Mary1972 Mon 30-Dec-13 18:03:44

I asked everyone in the family if they wanted edible presents or not and then respected that and they did that with me too which worked very well. So no unwanted food presents to scoff here.
I seem to have lost some weight whilst away on holiday as I was skiing every day and eating low carb. So any early gain I suppose won't be on the chart as already the losses have already occurred but that does not matter.

Interestingly I was just singing some Purcell at the piano accompanying myself as a break from work and the sound was my best. I think it's when I'm off dairy and eating healthily - it affects the voice so much. What a nice side effect.

dementedma Mon 30-Dec-13 18:07:09

Thanks for the advice re diabetics. This is the first time in years that dh has shown any sign of being prepared to try and lose weight so don't want to jeopardise this tiny enthusiasm. He is about 20 stone and needs to lose a lot!

Dreamingofcakeallnight Mon 30-Dec-13 19:00:33

Can someone pls add me- I seem to have dropped off. Thanks x

Suzymoo9 Mon 30-Dec-13 19:13:09

there's some useful recipes here:
http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/recipes/u/lowcarbrecipes.htm

dementedma. this site has lots of useful stuff about diabetes and carbs - I like the site as it is sort of run by diabetics for diabetics if you like rather than having to follow any 'official' guidelines.

Valdeeves Mon 30-Dec-13 21:54:59

Mary1972 that's so interesting about your singing voice. I've found the same thing - when I'm eating lots of carbs it's less clear and more croaky! Possibly linked to the fact that I seem to never get colds when I'm strictly LC.

maddy68 Tue 31-Dec-13 12:23:28

Count me in. Christmas photos were not flattering!!!

Could someone add me please? On my phone & can't work out how to copy the list.

I'm finishing the year over half a stone heavier than I started it; despite also losing a further 10lbs in the first half of the year, urgh, so annoyed at myself for putting it all back on & then some! Know low carb is the way to go, just find it difficult when there are still carbs in the house for DC and (skinny, needs to gain weight) DH...I'm awful for picking at their leftovers, snacking while cooking dinner etc...if only I could live in isolation it would be much easier!! wink

Right, I'm in. Last drink of white wine shall be tonight. No more until the end of bootcamp. Moderate amounts of red though. The next two weeks gives me time to eat up the rest of the naughty puddings and assorted festive treats hanging around, and ease myself into bootcamp light before the start of bootcamp proper.

Crabby I thought the whole 'red wine is lower carb than white wine' was a mistake by Atkins who assumed that white wine had more carbs because it has a sweeter taste.

daisychicken Tue 31-Dec-13 15:49:34

I made almond pancakes for breakfast today... ingredients were 2 eggs, 100ml double cream, pinch salt, dash of vanilla essence and 50ml of almond flour.. mixed and then cooked in a blob of coconut oil. Was nice but a bit eggy for my liking, has anyone else make LC pancakes and got a better recipe?

FourArms Tue 31-Dec-13 15:54:14

Picked up a nut mix in Aldi today - Christmas bag reduced to 99p. It's brazil, almond, macadamia & pecan. 3.2g of carbs per 100g (of which 2.3g sugars).

Would they be OK for bootcamp light?

BIWI Tue 31-Dec-13 16:02:09

They would, FourArms - but just keep an eye on how much you're eating. It's very easy to eat a lot of nuts as they are so moreish!

JakeBullet Tue 31-Dec-13 16:03:20

I'm in, it felt amazing when I followed this last year and I felt so well. Fell off the wagon spectacularly and am now back to where I was before I started!

Hi everyone! I'd love to join. Low carbing worked a treat 10 years ago as I was hitting 30. A decade and 2dc later I'm hoping for the same results as I'm turning 40 in April!

nutellaontoast Tue 31-Dec-13 16:57:27

I did so well at work today....then got home to the toblerone!!! Fatal :D. Ah well aiming for a gradual reduction over the next few weeks.

Anyway, question - has anyone tried using chromium and glutamine to help control the initial carb cravings? Any good?

Ruprekt Wed 01-Jan-14 00:53:32

Ooh lots of us! smilesmile

NewStartNewStory Wed 01-Jan-14 01:57:17

Well after the disaster of all poster posting ability being suspended tonight I would like to finally say I am jumping back on the wagon! shakes head at all the chaos

Count me in, I lost over a stone 2 yrs ago (I'm only tiny) but have piled it back on (and more) by faffing around and trying to please DH who likes wine and roasties at the weekend. I was going to restart on Monday but the extra week means the chocolates in the staffroom won't sabotage my good intentions.

I've started cutting out my bread and pasta type stuff now, still eating my Xmas chocs, but by Monday (back to work) I should be ready to go. :-)

CointreauVersial Wed 01-Jan-14 13:41:27

I'd like to join, but can't cut and paste on the phone.

Could someone possibly pop me into the List?

Ta muchly.

I started low carbing in 2010, and lost 1.5 stone, but most half of it has piled back on over the last few months. I'm feeling the podge and I don't like it.

I'm in. It's happening. Will probably start from Monday though, as DH - and most of my friends and family! - will be dieting then.

MrsJoeHart Wed 01-Jan-14 14:09:23

I'm in, but my ipad won't let me cut and paste so could someone add me please?

I've low carbed very successfully before going from a size 18 to a 12/10. Someone asked about thyroid problems, mines underactive and I had no problems in fact I felt a lot better and no longer suffered from some of the problems that I usually attribute tot he thyroid.

I'm in! I'll add my name when I can get to my laptop. I've lost 2.5 stones on low carb in the past, and put about 9 pounds in in last 3 months or so. Most of it in last 3 weeks blush. I've only ever lurked on these threads in the past but m ready to throw myself to the lions in this time!

BIWI Wed 01-Jan-14 16:13:51

Hello, Cointreau!

ziggiestardust Wed 01-Jan-14 16:37:48

Started my 'pre bootcamp bootcamp' today, as I'm feeling like such a mess! Also a good excuse to say no to offers of booze and carbs tbh.

Also, if I wait until 13th, I'll find yet another excuse to not do it!

StuntNun Wed 01-Jan-14 16:57:30

BIWI if you're already low carbing is there any real reason to do Bootcamp or can I stick with Bootcamp Light for the first two weeks? I did the strict two weeks as the start of the last Bootcamp and I wasn't sure it was really necessary. Obviously if you're just starting low carbing then it's needed to break the carb cravings and get your body used to low carbing.

blizy Wed 01-Jan-14 17:04:53

Can someone please add me to the list? I can't work out how to do it on the ipad. Thanks in advance ��

Maryz Wed 01-Jan-14 17:13:50

StuntNun - do whatever suits you best. I think most of us who have signed up are doing so because we haven't been low carbing over Christmas and have therefore gained weight! In that situation, IMO, the 'short sharp shock' of Bootcamp is a good way to get you back on track - but not essential.

StuntNun Wed 01-Jan-14 17:59:59

Thanks BIWI I have been trying to keep to low carb but the odd carrot, bit of stuffing, slice of Christmas pud and a few wine have sneaked in along the way. The worst excess was a piece of turkey and ham pie which was yum at the time but DH and I both suffered the next day.

statisticsthicko Wed 01-Jan-14 18:06:22

Thank you Mary. Just shovelled last carby meal down - home made steak pie and potato wedges. About to follow with chocolate and raspberry torte. Then. That. Is. It.

I know it's not officially starting til 13th but I can't go on like this <dramatic>!!!!

Tigglette Wed 01-Jan-14 18:49:53

Hi folks can I join please - my iPad wont let me cut and paste... I did this last year and lost just over two stone, about 5 lb of which has crept back on. I know once I get going again it'll soon drop off.

I did the Bootcamp last January, reached my ideal weight of 9 stone 8lbs pretty quickly and then maintained for the rest of the year.

Of course Christmas came and it really is too tricky so stay off the booze and chocolatey treats. Especially when there is a Bootcamp coming up. wink

I really struggle with drinking enough water, so I am going to fill up a 2L bottle at the beginning of the day to ensure I reach at least that much. I like it at room temp anyway.

Am planning a gradual retreat from the carbs, starting tomorrow with all refined sugar and wheat, fruit three days later, carby veg three days after that. I just can't face doing it all at once, but I should be well on track by the 13th.

Yama Wed 01-Jan-14 19:52:50

Yes, Humphrey - I can't stand too cold water. I tend to down a pint, refill the glass and leave it on the window sill for the next time I swing past.

I'm really excited ethlinn grin

ethlinn Wed 01-Jan-14 20:11:09

So am I. Mainly because I am soooo fat. And fed up with not fitting in any of my clothes.

DottiestDoris Wed 01-Jan-14 20:17:22

May I join too please? Would you please copy and paste me-am on phone and can't (I think). Am ebf like Pseudo, so will be sure to read the responses to her questions. So excited my fat bits are wobbling! smile

ChubbyLittleLoser Wed 01-Jan-14 20:34:54

I'm going to start tomorrow otherwise I never will and I'm actually scared about this 'carb flu' I've been told about!

Can someone tell me if my meal plan for tomorrow is ok, just want to make sure I'm on the right line.

B: couple of spoonfuls of total yoghurt and some celery with cream cheese (not a big breakfast eater so this is all I can manage)
L: Leafy egg salad and mayonnaise
D: Spinach and ricotta aubergine with broccoli, green beans and cauliflower

I have some celery, cucumber sticks and babybells for snacks, is this any good?

PseudoBadger Wed 01-Jan-14 21:44:38

BIWI you gave me great advice about low carb whilst breastfeeding a fairly small baby (12 weeks). However I forgot that I'm still on these stupid blood pressure pills for pregnancy induced hypertension (Labetalol). Do you (or anyone else) know if this is likely to be an issue? I appreciate advice isn't a replacement for medical advice...

ethlinn Wed 01-Jan-14 22:15:55

PseudoBadger, I am not an expert at all but afaik low carb diet should help to lower your blood pressure so it's worth to keep an eye on it and speak to your gp about adjusting medication too.

BIWI Wed 01-Jan-14 22:30:44

Yes, it could well be an issue, PsuedoBadger, given that low carbing is likely to bring down your blood pressure. You need to talk to your GP before starting.

PseudoBadger Wed 01-Jan-14 22:59:52

Thanks, she's weaning me off them but it's taking forever! Hopefully she'll be supportive and we can work with dosages.

FourArms Wed 01-Jan-14 23:15:40

Thanks for guidance re nuts BIWI smile

nutellaontoast Thu 02-Jan-14 00:15:22

Regarding the labetalol personally I'd speak to the GP but also monitor your own BP and see them if you find it's trending far enough downwards that you wish to reduce your dose again. I was quite proactive on that one which was useful even though I could happily burn the damn machine now

bettybigballs Thu 02-Jan-14 06:12:36

I'll be in too, didn't do so well on last boot camp for various reasons. Have been semi low for a few months but need discipline of bootcamp fora few weeks.

Can I join in please?
Can't wait to start!

Mary1972 Thu 02-Jan-14 09:42:44

Chubby, hard for me to say if that is okay as I am a total carnivore! It would certainly not fill me up.
B: couple of spoonfuls of total yoghurt and some celery with cream cheese (not a big breakfast eater so this is all I can manage)
Sounds compliant with this way of eating as at least you are having something. I would typically have 3 eggs and 4 slices of bacon.

L: Leafy egg salad and mayonnaise
As log as you have enough eggs. Mayonnaise is often full of additives and sugar so I think it's best to ditch that unless you are making it yourself and know what is in it. I would be more likely to have a chickn leg with loads of fatty skin and veg.

D: Spinach and ricotta aubergine with broccoli, green beans and cauliflower
Not sure about the green beans. i eat lots of spinach, brocoli is good. It is basically good fats which fill you up so make sure you are piling that on which is what helps people stick to these ways of eating. I am not BIWI but I think high good fats, medium protein and low carb is often a good way to go. That is low carb not no carb.

I suspect on the basis of what you set out I eat about 3x your number of calories!

Mlig Thu 02-Jan-14 09:58:54

Welcome everyone!

Chubby (you will have to change that name grin) you menu looks OK, although it is quite heavy on dairy. Are you a vegetarian? Just be aware that dairy can stall people so you may need to keep an eye on that. And re mayonnaise, home-made is obviously better, but I know we don't all have time for that. Just check the carbs on the label and take those into account.

And just to pick up on a point that Mary has made - this is a low carb diet not a no carb diet! We are aiming to get the majority of our carbs from vegetables and salad, instead of things like bread, pasta and rice. You should be making sure that you eating veg/salad with at least 2 out of your 3 meals a day (because you also should be eating three meals a day)

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 10:30:01

And don't forget that we have a lovely low carb recipe thread to inspire you!

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 10:30:13

You did, Badvoc grin

ChubbyLittleLoser Thu 02-Jan-14 10:31:41

Thanks Mary and BIWI

Yes I am vegetarian so finding it difficult to not rely on dairy too much but will plan a bit better for tomorrow. Breakfast today made me feel a bit sick so will stick to boiled eggs in future I think and try to keep dairy for just my evening meal.

WhomessweetWhomes Thu 02-Jan-14 10:41:11

Can someone add me please? Can't seem to do it on my phone. Thanks! I'm going to try and start a bit early. Fortunately dh has decided he wants to do a bit of a health drive in January too. I'll just have to steer him towards lc a bit so that it makes it easier for me to sticj to.

MyPreciousRing Thu 02-Jan-14 10:42:09

Sorry I don't know how to copy and paste on my phone
Would somebody be kind enough to add me to the list please?
Did low carb approx ten years ago and lost two stone
Desperate to do it again and need the support
Many thanks!

Badvoc Thu 02-Jan-14 10:52:02

Have checked it out BIWI....you are a bit buggered if you are allergic to cheese! smile
Am determined to come off my GERD meds this year!
The curried cauliflower recipe...would it work with other veg?

Badvoc Thu 02-Jan-14 10:52:31

Also, where are the rules for bootcamp?
(Yes, I should remember but don't! smile)

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 11:02:36

Rules of Bootcamp

Apart from cutting out:

potatoes/rice/pasta/bread
sugar/chocolate/biscuits/crackers
flour
fruit (for the first two weeks)
alcohol (for the first two weeks)

These are the rules:

1. Eat three, proper meals a day
You must eat breakfast. It doesn’t have to be a lot, and it doesn’t have to be absolutely first thing, but you must have something. For the rest of the day, if you’re eating enough food and you are in ketosis then you shouldn’t be hungry between meals. But if you are hungry, eat something. (Hard boiled eggs make a great snack).

After the first two weeks of Bootcamp we will relax this, but these two weeks are critical in terms of helping you switch easily to a low carb way of eating - and if you start to feel hungry, it makes things much harder! Eating this way will ensure that your blood sugar levels are kept stable, which will mean that you are much less likely to experience hunger.

A typical high carbohydrate diet can mean that snacking is a routine part of your day. Once your blood sugar levels are stable, by eating low carb, you should find that you no longer want to snack. But the rule of thumb here is ‘if you are hungry, eat!’. (Just make sure you are only choosing low carb snacks, of course!)

2. Avoid processed food
Focus on pure, natural protein as the basis for your meals – meat/fish/eggs. Things like sausages, bacon, pre-prepared burgers, Pepperami etc should be avoided as much as possible. You can have them, but just not every day. Avoid foods marketed as low carb, e.g. Atkins Daybreak bars. These products contain all manner of artificial ingredients, and often contain sugar. You should always check the carb counts of these foods if you are including them, as some of them can be surprisingly high (e.g. Tesco Chargrilled Burgers - per burger, fried, there are 5.4g carbs)

3. Eat lots of fat
Eating fat will not make you fat. Honestly! But it will keep your appetite satisfied, and it sustains your body’s energy requirements perfectly. Fat does not provoke an insulin spike, unlike carbs which do (a lot) and protein (a little). Fry in butter, add butter to vegetables, eat salad with a home-made vinaigrette dressing (not made with balsamic vinegar though, as this is too sweet), add mayonnaise where you can (just check the carb count on your mayo first).

Eat fattier cuts of meat – e.g. pork belly, roast chicken with the skin on and/or eat the fat off your lamb chops. Absolutely no low fat/light foods of any kind!

4. Make sure you are eating vegetables and salads with your food
This is where your carbs should come from, and this is non-negotiable. But choose only those vegetables that are on the allowed list. Make sure that you focus on eating those vegetables that are 3g carb per 100g or less, and this will ensure that your carb counts are kept low. You don’t have to weigh/count carbs – this is one of the great joys of this WOE (way of eating), but if you’re new to low carbing it can be helpful to weigh your portions of veg in the early days, just so that you know how many carbs are in the sort of portions that you like to eat.

%. Be careful about dairy (apart from butter, which is unlimited)
Dairy can impede weight loss for some people. If you are still drinking tea/coffee with milk or cream, try to restrict yourself to max 2 cups per day. There are a lot of carbs in milk, so if you are having several cups of tea/coffee per day, you will quickly rack up your daily carb count (e.g. 1 medium latte contains more than 12g carbs!)

You may eat cheese but again, don't overdo it.

Full fat yoghurt is the best way to include dairy in your diet - but beware, it does contain carbs. Total Full Fat is the best

6. You must drink a minimum of 2 litres of water per day
The more weight you have to lose, the more water you should drink. This is from http://www.low-carbdiet.co.uk/. Water is essential to weight loss for those who eat low-carb. The minimum consumed in a day should be:

Your Weight----------Litres
140lbs-----------------2.5
160lbs-----------------3.0
180lbs-----------------3.0
200lbs-----------------3.5
220lbs-----------------3.5
240lbs-----------------4.0
260lbs-----------------4.5
280lbs-----------------4.5
300lbs-----------------5.0
320lbs-----------------5.5
340lbs-----------------5.5
360lbs-----------------6.0
380lbs-----------------6.5
400lbs-----------------6.5

High levels of ketones in the blood stream can lead to a reduction in ketone production, therefore being well hydrated could aid in keeping the levels low and ketone production ongoing. Consuming enough water can have many other positive side effects: aids your kidneys with the processing of protein, reduces the retention of water, helps with preventing constipation, and reduces the levels of ketones released by your breath, which in-turn will reduce breath odour.

However, drinking a lot of water can mean that you also need to keep an eye on your electrolyte balance. You need to make sure that you are consuming sufficient sodium and potassium. On a low carb diet we can eat more salt, so make sure that you are cooking with salt and adding salt to food, if you like it. Good, low carb, sources of potassium are spinach (raw), avocado, mushrooms, courgettes and asparagus, as well as salmon and yoghurt.

7. No alcohol
Alcohol is the easiest source of fuel for the body to burn, so it will always use this first before it starts to burn any fat - which is why you need to restrict it, especially in the first two weeks of Bootcamp, when we are encouraging the body to stop using carbs for its source of fuel and turn to fat-burning instead.

If you really can't do this - at least try and restrict it to the weekend. Vodka with soda is the best thing to drink. Or Champagne, red wine or dry white wine.

8. No fruit
Really. Seriously. Honestly. None at all. Zilch. Nada

After Bootcamp you will be able to introduce certain fruits, but at this stage fruit is simply too carby. We are also trying to break the addiction to sweet things, so cutting fruit out is part of this process. If you are getting all your carbs from vegetables and salad, you will be getting all the nutrients and fibre that you need.

9. No nuts/seeds
Whilst these are really good to snack on later, when we move into Bootcamp Light - it can be too easy to start snacking on these, and before you know it, all your carbs have gone on nuts. Seriously - in Bootcamp - don't do it to yourself!

10. No sugar or artificial sweeteners
Sugar is an obvious ‘no no’, but artificial sweeteners are also an issue. One of the aims of this way of eating is to eat pure and natural foods, so including sweeteners is not recommended.
Some people find that artificial sweeteners can impede their weight loss, and there is some suggestion that your body can respond to sweeteners as if they were sugar, by releasing more insulin - and therefore laying down fat. Given that the aim of Bootcamp is to help us lose our sweet tooth and addiction to sweet things, then it is a good idea to avoid sweeteners altogether in this first two weeks.

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 11:06:51

Oh dear! And what was that, koTinka? Cut down on fat perchance?!

Maryz Thu 02-Jan-14 11:09:04

I can't make up my mind whether to start today (or Monday), or carry on eating and start properly on the 13th.

Part of me wants to be heavy for the start of the spreadsheet blush

I think I'm a lost cause.

<considers weighing self today, using that as start weight and appearing to lose pounds in week one grin>

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 11:23:04

What a cunning plan ... grin

MyPreciousRing Thu 02-Jan-14 11:29:19

Maryz that's exactly what I was going to do! Can't beat that feeling of miraculous weight loss on week one...
Only fooling ourselves I suppose though.

Badvoc Thu 02-Jan-14 11:30:31

Thanks BIWI
Can I ask your very knowledgeable advice! smile
Due to illness (had my gallbladder out 4 weeks ago) I don't really want to lose much weight (sorry guys I'm really not bragging...losing weight through illness is not great sad
Anyway...should I do bootcamp or just go straight to bootcamp light?
I would find no fruit hard ATM.
Also....you don't mention oats/oatbran...what's the deal with these?

timidviper Thu 02-Jan-14 11:33:53

Maryz I've been thinking exactly the same! blush I can't start yet though as we have leftovers today, supper at a friends house on Fri and a dinner dance on Sat. I've never looked forward to getting back on a diet before though!

On the positive side, I've eaten a lot of stuff over Christmas which would normally tempt me and really haven't been that bothered by it. I've been quite 'meh' about food which is unusual and I have discovered an ability to not eat stuff if I don't want or like it (sounds daft but I have always eaten before just because it was there!)

Maryz Thu 02-Jan-14 11:34:40

So, not my genius eh? Is everyone lying doing it?

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 11:36:38

Badvoc - if you don't need to lose much, then Bootcamp Light will be fine. But fruit is still difficult. Berries are fine but many fruits are also too high in carbs to really be low carb.

The 'thing' about oats/oatbran is that they are too high in carbs. We're supposed to be getting our carbs from veg/salad - especially in the strict two weeks of Bootcamp.

I'm a newbie- hope I did that right? I'm going to start today I think, is that allowed? Otherwise I will just go crazy between now and the 13th and will have even more work to do!

nappyaddict Thu 02-Jan-14 12:10:53

BIWI Are both red wine and white wine vinegar OK to have?

Mary1972 Thu 02-Jan-14 12:19:02

My daughter sent me this link as we both eat paleo/primal etc

Perhaps the message is getting or will get through that NHS / UK advice to eat high carb is not such a great thing.

You're welcome smile

BerylStreep Thu 02-Jan-14 12:44:06

I weighed myself this morning, and I have put on 5kg over the last 4 weeks shock.

Not entirely surprised, as I have been eating bread and chocolates and all the usual festive stuff, but even so, 5kg in 4 weeks?

I need to start today, so that I am not entering a porker weight on the 13th.

I am entirely in for this bootcamp, having dabbled on previous ones smile

I've felt awful over the Christmas period, and part of that is definitely due to my carb intake.

I don't weigh, so won't add myself to the list, but I aim to lose at least 1 dress size.

I'll be starting this weekend as I can't stand the bloat any longer!!

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 14:41:17

nappyaddict - yes, red and white wine vinegar are both fine. Balsamic, though, is definitely not!

Notsoskinnyminny Thu 02-Jan-14 15:04:06

I made almond pancakes for breakfast today... ingredients were 2 eggs, 100ml double cream, pinch salt, dash of vanilla essence and 50ml of almond flour.. mixed and then cooked in a blob of coconut oil. Was nice but a bit eggy for my liking, has anyone else make LC pancakes and got a better recipe?

I hadn't thought to use ground almonds, I make mine with

2oz cream cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs double cream

whisk together but don't worry about the lumps and fry in butter - I do about 3 blobs (technical term) at a time so they're easier to flip/get out. For a sweet treat add a squirt of lemon juice and a bit of splenda and eat hot or I store them in the fridge provided the brats don't eat them first they're fussy beggars so it proves they're good and use them as a wrap or use 2 to make a sandwich.

daisychicken Thu 02-Jan-14 15:36:33

Thanks Notso I'll try your recipe for breakfast tomorrow. How many pancakes does your mix make and is it eggy? The one I used supposedly made one but it was a huge pancake and a nightmare to flip - with that recipe, I'd split into 2-4 smaller pancakes. Oops.. just seen you make 3! I don't use Splenda (I can't bring myself to use an artifical sugar & read an article recently which just made me feel more strongly about it), the "low carb family" cookbook suggested whipped cream & berries which I know aren't suitable for bootcamp but I may get some frozen berries from lidl and make a purée type consistency to go with pancakes or yoghurt.

timidviper Thu 02-Jan-14 15:41:04

I use the same recipe as Notso but stick a blob of peanut butter or almond butter in for flavouring. I then serve it with a blob of natural yoghurt and, when on bootcamp light, a few berries and seeds or flaked almonds

How does this work, what can and can't you eat, never knew carbs were in balsamic?

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 18:12:29

givemeaclue - if you scroll up the thread, you will see Bootcamp rules.

Balsamic vinegar is a reduction of grape juice (it's not a vinegar in the traditional sense) which means it is very carby - think about the taste and how sweet it is. Whereas ordinary vinegar is 0g carbs per 100g, balsamic is 17g carbs per 100g.

StuntNun Thu 02-Jan-14 18:50:37

Can I recommend that everyone starting this WOE (way of eating) measures their waist size as well as their weight. It is very common for weight to stay the same from one week to the next but your waist to shrink in that time. My typical pattern of weight loss would be to lose a pound then stay the same weight for a week or two but lose half an inch off my waist then a few days later lose another pound. It's easy to get discouraged when the scales aren't dropping but you can be reassured when your waist is shrinking.

The reason for this is the mechanism by which you lose weight. On this WOE you should be in a calorie-deficit and, because you aren't eating much carbs and your insulin levels are low instead of slowing your metabolism down, your body uses up its fat stores. The body fat is replaced with an equal weight of water so you are losing fat but your weight doesn't change. As water is more dense than fat (remember fat floats on water) the water takes up less space so you become slimmer without losing any weight. Then comes the 'whoosh' as your body gets rid of that water and you suddenly drop a pound or two.

CointreauVersial Thu 02-Jan-14 18:59:48

The best thing about low-carbing is the almost instant effect it has on my mummy tummy. It flattens straight away.

(the muffin top needs a bit more work, however).

Thanks, cannot wait to get started!

My ipad isn't letting me cut and paste, do you think someone could do it for me after adding my name at the bottom. Pretty please grin

Badvoc Thu 02-Jan-14 19:28:10

Thats very true.
I have lost over 5 inches from my waist since summer 2012 when I I rest started!
Also 4 inches off boobs, and 2 inches off each thigh.
I can now get my lovely knee high winter boots on again!

stuntnun - you should keep reposting that smile I definitely 'shrunk' more than I 'lost' and I found it helpful to know why that was, I think it keeps you 'hanging in there' when the scales are fucking you off being less than co-operative.

BIWI eloquent << I think you mean whinging & moaning fgrin It is frustrating when the HCP tell you that your results are amazing and you are their Star Patient - then tell you that low carbing isn't recommended <sigh> but hey ho, you don't have to listen to people who have less sense than a snowball!!

givemeaclue Thu 02-Jan-14 20:22:46

What page are the rules on please?

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 20:26:39

givemeaclue - I don't use pages - but it's not far up the thread

DurhamDurham Thu 02-Jan-14 20:26:52

Could someone kind and lovely please add me on to the list and post for me as my ipad isn't playing. I would be very grateful and promise not to beat you in the weight loss stakes ( highly unlikely I will be beating anyone!) smile

CobOnTheCorn Thu 02-Jan-14 20:57:00

Hi BIWI and everyone else!

I'm hoping to join on the 13th but I'm dairy-free at the moment so I can't add butter/cream to dishes to up the fat content and can't eat yoghurt either.

I really want to do this and I know from previous experience that planning ahead helps stick to this woe so what shall I stock up on?

I already have coconut oil that I could have in coffee for almost bulletproof. I also have groundnut oil which I've been using to cook veg in instead of butter. I usually make salad dressing with olive oil so ok there. If I have a salad for lunch, I'll usually include an avocado, some chicken with skin, veg and an oily dressing.

My breakfast is usually eggs, albeit with oil instead of butter now. I do use mayonnaise but rely on jars - for some reason I can't get on with making my own.

Any other tips? I want to make sure I have enough fat so that I get hungry and reach for something sugary.

CobOnTheCorn Thu 02-Jan-14 21:13:43

Err, that should be don't get hungry obvs!

GrumpyCrossPatch Thu 02-Jan-14 21:19:44

I would like to join please (iPad won't let me copy and paste). Probably should step away from the mince pies as I sign up... blush

BIWI Thu 02-Jan-14 21:53:02

CobOnTheCorn - why the groundnut oil instead of butter? Butter doesn't count as dairy, and is probably better for you anyway. Coconut oil is also brilliant. And make sure that your protein choices are fatty ones - e.g. not just lean chicken or fish

EvaTheOptimist Thu 02-Jan-14 23:15:49

Namechanging again... fed up with lily-amaryllis or lily-annie. I've changed my name in the list below and added four others that had asked to be added in the last couple of days.

Chubby your menu looks great - love the sound of the spinach & ricotta aubergine - maybe you could pass on the recipe? I would remember you can serve your veg with butter, to make sure you have enough fat. Also, if you're struggling with the total yogurt, its great mixed with vanilla essence, or cream, and some people say cinnamon but I've not tried it. When you get to bootcamp light you can have berries with the yogurt which is great.

All of you starting today or earlier than 13th, note down your start weight so you can claim the full effect of what you lose!!

Delighted to be joining. Have combined low carb very successfully with some running in the past, but 15 pounds have crept on over the last year...easily done but hopefully easily lost!

CrabbyWinterBottom Fri 03-Jan-14 00:10:47

Stunt I need to cut out the white wine because I drink too bloody much of it, not so much because of the carb content! grin

GrumpyCrossPatch Fri 03-Jan-14 08:11:00

I'm looking forward to it. I have low carbed before and found it quite easy but allowed myself to stray and stil need to lose somewhere between a stone and a stone and a half, preferably by April!

There's still Christmas crap in the house. Neither DH or I want it but the voices of our mother's ring in our heads when we think about chucking out unbeaten food! Guilt everywhere.

GrumpyCrossPatch Fri 03-Jan-14 08:11:51

Mothers. Apologies for the rogue apostrophe. See, more guilt.

TrickyWoo Fri 03-Jan-14 09:08:31

Couple of questions if that's ok?!

How many grams of carbs am I allowed in first 2 weeks? Soft start yesterday, after lunch admittedly, and was undone by a can of emergency desk-drawer soup, and an onion, so ended up just under 50g for the day. Today I should end up on about 25g.

I love tea... And milk seems to be a bugger, not sure I can switch to black - what do I do??

My husband loves carbs and does calorie counting, any tips to cook once? Or how can I convince him? He really is addicted to carbs.

I'm Logging food on myfitnesspal and seem to be coming out at about the 'right' number of cals, magically. Is that actually how this works??!

Thx in advance.

Kefybaby Fri 03-Jan-14 09:09:26

I normally have breakfast in the office and on LC diets in the past I was having porridge. I see this is not allowed by the bootcamp rules. Is yogurt my only quick and easy office breakfast option?

TrickyWoo Fri 03-Jan-14 09:09:40

Just to add, am only logging on MFP to track carbs, not calories, but it reports both.

Tia

ThermoLobster Fri 03-Jan-14 09:09:50

Wow! Loads of us! Still eating christmas leftovers here but doing an online shop for next week and trying to start incorporating the rules.
What is the view on honey in cooking or in yoghurt?

keeponkeepinon Fri 03-Jan-14 09:32:41

Thermolobster- I am by no means the expert on this but I wouldn't really touch honey, its way too sweet for this way of eating.
Set me straight if I am wrong though!

captainmummy Fri 03-Jan-14 09:45:01

Tricky- the amount of carbs/day seems to vary per person. Some lose on 25g/day, some if they stay under 100g! Personally I need to stay on about 25g/day, but there is no strict limit - see how you go. Incidentally, with MFP you also will neeed to add a column for 'fibre' as it's an american site and doesn't remove it first, as we do. Subtract fibre from the carbs at the end of the day.
re cooking once - make sure it's not a pasta/rice style dish! I cook for me a dp and just lose the potatoes/rice; and add more 'good' veg.
Re tea - I drink Rooibos, black, unsweetened. I'll drink about 3-4 mugs a day and this also counts towards my water intake of 2.5Lts. Or try soya milk, it's lower in carbs. (but not much) Or try those 'fruit' flavoured teas - liquorice is a good one, as it's naturally sweet (for those with a sweet tooth) but zero carbs.
Thermo - honey is 100% carbs! As we are trying to stick to foods that are under 3g/100g, it is totally out, I'm afraid. Have you read the rules? (Not sure if they are on this thread but BIWI will post them at the top of each weeks' spreadsheet. )
Kefy - yoghurt is a good breakfast; do you have access to a microwave? Scrambled eggs takes 2 minutes. Leftovers from dinner, heated up (I had sausages yesterday) or do as the continentals do and take slices of cheese/meat/hardboiled eggs. We need to stop thinking of breakfast as being a special meal (cereals, toast and jam etc) and just eating whatever is there. (In prague once, staying with friends, we had leftover boiled sausage and sauerkraut!)
My breakfast now (after 1.5 years of LC) is a Rooibos tea with tsp coconut oil - it fills me up till lunch (yes really - unlike those cereals/toast, which kept me going till - ooh, 10 oclock?)

captainmummy Fri 03-Jan-14 09:48:08

BIWI also normally does a 'questions' thread, so that any questions you may have don't get missed in the general chat/support/motivation on the current thread.

MrsPnut Fri 03-Jan-14 10:06:30

I've done Dukan successfully before but have struggled to get back on the wagon a few times.

Thanks. Was being thick and getting confused between Low Carb and Paleo. I think it is allowed in moderation on a Paleo diet because it is a natural substance that can be eaten raw.

whitepaws Fri 03-Jan-14 10:51:08

I'm delurking finally to join this thread. Have lots to lose, a long way to go but every day I seem to feel the effects of my weight more and more. Have tried low cal diets before , lost weight and always regained. This time I will lose weight, get healthier and work towards getting pregnant!

Hope I've c+p the list properlyproperly

Im in! I did Paleo last year for 6 months and felt fab and lost 3 1/2 stone without trying, I unfortunatley fell off the wagon badly and regained a couple of stone sad I was gonna restart next week but will do bootcamp instead as it will be a good strict passage back in and will be good to have some support along the way grin

BIWI Fri 03-Jan-14 10:56:54

Morning all! Back at work today, so time for MNing is definitely curtailed <shakes fist at RL>.

Thermo - honey is definitely not allowed on Bootcamp or Bootcamp Light - it's just sugar by any other name, I'm afraid.

Kefybaby - do you have a microwave at work? If you can't eat at home before you go to work, and you're bored with yoghurt, the other thing to do is to take in something that you can heat up easily. I often have leftovers from dinner the night before. The key thing is not to think of breakfast as a meal that requires special, 'breakfast-only' foods - that's a legacy of the cereal manufacturers, making us think that we have to eat differently!

Tricky - the whole idea of Bootcamp is that you don't have to count carbs. As long as you follow the rules, and eat the right veg/salad (i.e. those that are mainly 3g carbs per 100g) then you will be fine. Unfortunately there isn't any easy way to marry up low carb with low cal dieting/cooking - but I'd say that if you're cooking then you get to choose what's on the menu!

The best way to convince your DH is to get him to do some reading about why calorie-counting doesn't work in the long term. "Escape the Diet Trap" by Dr John Briffa is a really good book, and easy to read, and it explains the thinking behind low carving as well as explaining why low calorie isn't the way to go.

MrsHughJarse Fri 03-Jan-14 11:25:48

I am in ! I have had a name change to reflect what I saw on the scales this morning....... the enthusiasm on this thread and knowledge is going to make the numbers shrink ! The name came from when I was a student nurse in A&e many years ago and the devils played tricks on the newbies by putting false cards in the minor injuries box - so guess went into a packed waiting room and shouted Mrs Hugh Jarse....... !

Waves at all the mighty no carbers! I have never done this before but am super motivated! Can anyone point me at the rules that have been mentioned up thread? I have PILED weight on over the last 3 years and now have 4 stone to lose. I am ashamed and low and need to get my body (and my jeans) back

BIWI - can I have coffee mate or is that a no-no like sweeteners?

MrsJoeHart Fri 03-Jan-14 12:32:44

BIWI is there any chance we could have a discussion thread before the 13th to help get us in the mood and start meal planning? I don't want to clutter this one up.

I've forgotten a lot and need reminding, plus I was thinking of doing a soft start next week.

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Fri 03-Jan-14 12:35:33

just popping in to brag

went back on LCing yesterday - lost 3lbs - you might say water weight...I say, I don't give a shit what weight it issmile

whats more dh lost 4.5lbs hes a fat bastard tough to be fair

fucking love this diet

CointreauVersial Fri 03-Jan-14 13:48:51

I'm in Ireland at the moment, home of the carbohydrate, and have been stuffing myself silly with all the wrong things (soda bread.....mm mm...).

It will all be coming to an end verrrry soon.

I can happily live without spud, rice, pasta, but I do miss a nice piece of bread.

Hi Custy !

sybilfaulty Fri 03-Jan-14 13:49:37

Well done Custardo. Great work. A lot of DHs lose weight quickly, some even inadvertently because they suddenly get lovely LC food without realising it! My Dh did 5.2 over the summer ( not very strictly either) and lost 2.5 st in about 3 months. Swine.

I would love a chat thread too. There is already a separate recipe thread from last time which is awash with LC delights. Once you get going, you will not want to eat many of the foods which seem so tempting before you start. I have been LC for about 18 m and the only think I really miss is toast. Pasta, rice, potatoes, biscuits- no loss. I do love toast still but try to have it as a treat. No toast on bootcamp though! .

BIWI Fri 03-Jan-14 13:50:29

A big fat no to Coffeemate! It's 57.3g carbs per 100g! Although you only use a little bit - one serving is actually 3.7g carbs - it is also full of nasty stuff. Here are the ingredients:

Glucose Syrup, Vegetable Oil, Stabilisers (Dipotassium Phosphate, Trisodium Citrate, Sodium Hexametaphosphate), Milk Proteins, Emulsifiers (Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Mono- and Diacetyl Tartaric Acid Esters of Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids), Anti-Caking Agent: Silicon Dioxide, Colour: Riboflavin.

Bootcamp is about avoiding artificial/processed foods as well as cutting down the carbs.

sybilfaulty Fri 03-Jan-14 13:50:45

Should say, my Dh was on 5.2 with LC in the five days! I don't think he even noticed!

BIWI Fri 03-Jan-14 13:52:46

I'll start a chat thread soon - some people are, I know, starting next week and others are wanting to ease themselves into it.

Here's a link to the rules

PLEASE PRINT THESE OUT SO THAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE THEM TO HAND!

Hi Custy - well done! It's a bloody pain that men lose more and more quickly, isn't it?

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Fri 03-Jan-14 13:53:28

Hi cointreau xxx

cheers Sybil - agree completely, it just drops off DH - but he has got about 3 stone to get rid of

Lighthousekeeping Fri 03-Jan-14 14:10:58

I'm going to do abig online shop this weekend. I have to really watch what I spend. I'm determined to crack on with this diet. I've let myself go terribly.

Lighthousekeeping Fri 03-Jan-14 14:39:31

Bloody hell I've just realised it's a week on Monday. Does that mean I can eat loads of Christmas rubbish until then?

sybilfaulty Fri 03-Jan-14 14:57:13

I find I get rid of binge weight quite quickly. So if I've been away for the weekend and eaten / drunk whatever I'm given, that goes off relatively quickly. It's the lard that has been around for a while which is slower yo budge.

I am back at work tomorrow so makes sense for me to cut back now

CustardoPaidforIDSsYFronts Fri 03-Jan-14 15:13:48

me too actually syb, I haven't weighed myself for two weeks ( unheard of for me) and I thought and felt much bigger than I actually was - I fairly jumped off the scales, as I though I was 10lbs heavier than I actually was - honestly

what are the veg options?

LauraBridges Fri 03-Jan-14 16:44:26

EvaTheOptimist Fri 03-Jan-14 16:46:53

Tricky I'm going to whisper this, but I have milk in my tea. I've been on BIWI's WOE since last May and dropped 2 dress sizes. Giving up a proper cup of tea was a step too far for me. I figured at least I was no longer having a biscuit or 5 with it! Despite the milk, its worked for me. Maybe it took longer, who knows, but at least I could stick with it!

Kefy another breakfast option, I hear some people make breakfast muffins (with almond flour?) that you could take to work. Can anyone dig out a recipe?

TrickyWoo Fri 03-Jan-14 18:02:00

Thanks for the replies! Think will keep having milk in tea, but am struggling to fit in my regular 'dose' with all the water! Carb flu today, so it may be working!!!

sybilfaulty Fri 03-Jan-14 18:26:27

If you have full fat milk, then you only need a mere splash to change the colour. I can drink black tea but prefer with milk, but as I drink so much water I tend to have just a couple if cups a day. You are supposed to have cream but as I really prefer skimmed milk in yea, this is a bridge too far.

I am all cheesed and wined out after Christmas. Boo. I think a lovely curry beckons. What kind of wonderful diet lets you eat curry with veg on a Friday ? How wonderful. Cheers. ( water of course! )

Notsoskinnyminny Fri 03-Jan-14 18:36:38

breakfast muffins Last time round I used the IPD recipe for egg and sausage muffins, it didn't have almond flour, I think it was eggs, cream, water and grated cheese. I'd make it in a lasagne dish and have a wedge when I got up and take a couple to work as you can eat it hot or cold and it was much easier than trying to peel off paper muffin cases. I'll try and find the recipe book unless I returned it to its rightful owner and post the quantities - there was plenty for Mon-Fri breakfasts.

MrsJoeHart Fri 03-Jan-14 19:30:07

We've got ten tonnes of cheese left from Christmas, DH makes great cheesy low carb snack thingie (just melted cheese) and we rely on them to get us through the initial few days. Just as well.

PseudoBadger Fri 03-Jan-14 19:54:39

I spoke to my doctor about my blood pressure meds and since we are constantly reviewing the readings/dosage to try and get me off them, she's happy for me to do Bootcamp - yay!
Soft start here, all meals today have been low carb and I've given away all my Christmas chocs to DP. However I have had a slice of Christmas cake and a lager and I might have the last bit of Christmas pudding too

I've had total yoghurt and 2 boiled eggs for breakfast, tuna mayo with spinach and cucumber for lunch and dinner is marinaded salmon with courgette pasta and broccoli.

kotinka Fri 03-Jan-14 19:55:39

MrsJoe do you have the instructions for the cheese thing?

I once tried making parmesan crisps. it tasted like burnt hair shock

BIWI Fri 03-Jan-14 20:15:03

Yay, PseudoBadger! Great to have your GP's support.

MyPreciousRing Fri 03-Jan-14 21:38:02

Thanks BIWI so black or cream is the way to go in coffee
And try to limit to two cups a day whilst drinking two and a half litres of water a day
Excellent - going to be harder than I thought this
But am up to the challenge - will be worth it in the end!

azzik Fri 03-Jan-14 22:31:19

Please add me in as I am having trouble via my phone.

wickedfairy Fri 03-Jan-14 22:33:14

Can someone add me please? Am on phone and don't know how to paste! Thankssmile

Want to lose 1 it 1.5 stones (depends how i look). Store it all round my middle and I want to be healthier too.

Thanks for starting this thread and the spreadsheet, looking forward to it smile
