I am following the Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet and so far reading their books has been the single only thing that has spoken my language and given me the push I need. It is a high protein, low carb eating plan. While it is very good, it doesn't list everything so could use some ideas as per the thread title. Hopefully it will help others to.
My current wondering is about swede as I have prepped some for dinner and don't know if I can have it.
Watching with interest. I have Neris and India's book but haven't read it yet. I think low carb would probably work best for me but have never done it before. My current diet is really carb heavy (cereal or toast for breakfast, sandwich or jacket for lunch, always pasta/rice/potatoes with dinner and lots of biscuits in between). I don't know what to eat instead!
If anyone has any ideas for low carb breakfast and low carb lunch please do share. I need some suggestions that don't involve too much preparation as I will have a 2yo and 9mo pulling on my leg whilst I attempt to make them
I highly recommend actually reading the book . It really spoke to me (poncy sentence) in a way that no other eating plan has. I have the diet book and the cook book and so far have made 2 recipes. I am not hungry, are drinking loads of water and feel confident I will lose the weight this time.
Breakfast was 2 fried eggs, bacon (meant to be 4 rashers but only had 3 left) and some mushrooms fried off in butter.
Lunch was Salade Nicoise.
Dinner is sausage and various vegetables. Easy peasy.
Hi Phipps, mind if I join in? I've been following India Knights book too for the last 2 weeks but have been very liberal with quanitities and snacking on cheese and peanut butter. All low carb I thought so they'd be ok. I've been running 3 times a week and was inketosis so was feeling v. confident at my weigh in today only to discover that not only had I not lost anything but I'd gained a pound. I really want this to work so am going to be stricter with portion control this week and no cheese or peanuts. tonight had chicken dinner ( I presume you can eat the skin?), veg and cauliflower mash. Did a 5k run and 45 dog walking. Tomorrow it's chicken mayo salad and sheperd pie. Keep us posted as to how you're doing
Yes, I am surprised how much carb there is even though I am not having bread, potatoes, etc. I am really doing well and if I lose nothing then the GP will have to listen to me that there is something wrong. Thanks for the link.
