... and it sounds like you're worried about both not losing weight and suffering from constipation.
I know of no reason why eggs would stop you losing weight. In fact, they are perfect low carb food.
If you are getting your carbs from veg and salad (especially green, leafy veg), eating enough fat and drinking enough water, then you should not suffer from constipation. As Willie says, not going to the loo does not mean you are constipated - it's only if you are having difficulty going and are in pain when you try to go that you are constipated.
If you are following Bootcamp rules, then you will be losing weight. If you aren't, then you won't.
That said, see the post I made on the chat thread - it's very common in weeks 3 and 4 to see little or not weight loss - and sometimes even a slight gain.
So tell me what's going on! What are you doing/eating/drinking?
I've been lurking since the beginning of the year, having decided to look into lo-carb.. I found Zoe Harcombe's stuff really interesting & of course the masses of info on these threads has been just great! The result is, my DP & myself are both losing weight - he's down 18lbs since Jan 2!!! Now, my prob is he's beginning to worry about the amount of fat I say is ok - he said today he doesn't want to be slim with clogged arteries.. BIWI can you give me some wise words to stop the worrying? He's doing so well I couldn't bear it for him if he stopped. Sorry for the long post but thanks so much all of you for sharing so much!!!!
Nappyaddict I wouldn't, too carby really. In theory the v8 I ok per 100ml but 100ml is not very much and you could easily overdo it. Juices are also v sweet and won't help break the craving for sugary things
Welcome wheremylifegone - I am not very good with explanations for these things so someone else will answer your question better, but my understanding is that research has shown that it's not dietary cholesterol (if that's what your h is worried about) that causes 'clogged arteries'
Hello everyone. Hope you're having a good weekend.
I've just remembered a recipe I saw on tv (qvc) and I just made some a really enjoyed it! So wondering now, if this is okay???
A few frozen blueberries Double cream to cover
I pulse blitzed them in a food blender that can manage ice, and made some blueberry ice cream. I had no sugar in it and it was yummy. So I know dairy might not be good for everyone, but does this sound like it's ok. I assumed t was which is why I had some. I am amazed at how I didn't miss the sugar at all.
There's loads of stuff around to support the fact that fat doesn't make you fat and that fat doesn't lead to coronary heart disease, but it's really difficult to believe/accept, given the very good job that the anti-fat brigade have done over the last 30 years or so.
Losing weight is one thing - and it's fabulous - but if you want to commit to low carb/high fat eating for the long term, it's a really good idea to do some reading about it. At the very least it will reassure you. It will also help you to refute the arguments you will get from others about this being an unhealthy way to eat.
I can seriously recommend that you read Dr John Briffa's book "Escape the Diet Trap", and Gary Taubes' "Why We Get Fat (and What to Do About It)" and "The Diet Delusion".
Loads of people keep telling me I'm going to have a heart attack too. I will have to read up more about that because I haven't been able to give much supporting evidence that it won't even though I trust/believe in this way of eating.
