Week 2 Summer Low Carb Bootcamp - continued thread!
BIWI · 02/06/2017 21:53
My goodness I don't think we've ever had a second thread in week 2!
Anyway, the last thread is full, so let's carry on the chatting here until the new thread on Monday!

Okay I'm reassured - beaten with stick I'll ignore MyFitnessPal and pay attention only to the boot camp rules. Veg under 3G per 100g is fine, meat, eggs, and FAT.
BIWI · 03/06/2017 18:58
Naschkatze - if you make sure that you're eating veg/salad with all your meals, and you're getting plenty of fat and protein, you should be fine.
And as you're on Bootcamp Light, you can also add fruit and nuts/seeds into your diet. And the odd square of dark chocolate here and there would also be a good idea.

Jim Can i ask a question totally unrelated to food? I've noticed that owners of Bassets, more often than not, have two of them. Is there a special reason for this, other than them being so cute?
GoodBadOrIndifferent · 03/06/2017 19:09
*eat more than standard bootcamp i mean, sorry!

I thought that was a picture of some LCHF biscuits we could eat, and then remembered your previous post :(

Tonight's dinner was Thai fish curry (made my own paste because the commercial ones are all full of bloody palm sugar) with butter braised pak choi. It was extremely good

Thanks Good! I obviously don't want to do anything that could affect my milk supply/ harm baby and the doubts started to creep in. I need to remind myself that carbs are not really a natural way to eat and people have been breastfeeding babies since forever.
Biwi Giving me permission to eat chocolate is very dangerous indeed! I have been eating some nuts - had a few Brazil nuts today, forgot to write that down. I might start to include some with breakfast.

Sorry cabbage - there may be some we can have on BC light that use almond flour.

There's a few reasons most have more than 1:
They are bred to hunt in packs and have horrendous issues with separation when left alone. I've never met a basset that's ok alone and I've met over 200. They need companionship and are incredibly needy without another basset!
Second reason is they are completely addictive all totally different characters but all generally great temperaments and really really cheeky. For example, I have Eric who has a potato instead of a brain and Elvis who is too bloody clever for his own good.
Third reason is once you have one, you fall in love with the breed. A LOT of bassets end up in rescue because they are active and very very hard to train, they also go through a 'terrible twos' stage from 6 months to 3 years old where they can be a complete handful. This is the time most end up in rescue and other lovers of the breed can't handle seeing a basset without a sofa and a human to sit on. I have one friend who currently has 7, all rescues and 4 of which are ex puppy farm breeders. That's the main issue, there's a lot of puppy farmers taking advantage of the breed at the moment and therefore more in rescue than ever unfortunately. Elvis is a rescue and ended up with us because we couldn't bare to see him in the state he was in basically. He's a happy pup now though although has a lot of ongoing issues we have to handle. Wouldn't change him for the world though :)
Final reason, cute bromance photos

Does anyone sometimes feel really nauseous after eating? It's happened a few times inc right now. I wasn't very hungry for tea and had half my pre-lchf portion. Is it too much fat that might cause the nauseous feeling?
Today I have had:
B: cream cheese pancake
L: salad with chicken pieces and mayo, and HB eggs mashed with butter
T: roast chicken with courgette and asparagus covered in garlic butter
S: several spoonfuls of cream throughout the day
4 pints water, 1 pint peppermint tea
HemanOrSheRa · 03/06/2017 19:39
They are so cute and squishy Jimminy .
That looks amazing ilove. You know what you have to do !
I really, really, really want wine . Poo.
OldBooks · 03/06/2017 19:40
Jim those photos are making me broody for a dog. What gorgeous boys.
L238 · 03/06/2017 19:50
Wow, I haven't checked in since last night and you're already on page 6 of a new thread!
Wine cravings are strong here too Heman
My partner is back from work trip, he left the day bootcamp started. He's supportive but a total carb addict - will be harder with temptation around. Bless him though, he's agreed to not have carbs in the evening although I'm worried that high fat content of evening meals might make him put on weight. He wants to lose weight too and I'm hoping he'll get curious about LCHF now he's home.
Anyway, B: scrambled eggs in butter, bacon
L: chicken liver salad, plenty of butter and oil
D: Fish pie with cauli mash, leeks & spinach (pic attached). Very yum but I couldn't finish my portion. Had lunch late so still quite full
Now to catch up on this incredibly fast moving thread! Happy weekend to all

OK I'm guessing no one's tried it with sour cream so I ploughed on as I was looking forward to it so! Here's e results. I added a bit too much cheese as it obviously had a sour tang so it's more a cheese/ bacon sauce than carbonara. Tis yum though.
WaaWaaWaaa · 03/06/2017 19:53
Oh and I've not tried courgetti before! Very nice!
L238 love the look of that fish pie!!!
cabbage67 · 03/06/2017 20:00
Jim Thank you for clearing that up for me, I always wondered every time I saw two together.
Gorgeous photos...such handsome boys
ragz134 · 03/06/2017 20:04
Wow, that was some catching up!
Jim - you looked amazing in your date night dress, well done!
To people worrying about gains/stalls already, I will post my weights graph for this year. I stalled/gained for over a month (the middle period in the graph), it was really frustrating but you can see the trend going downwards.
HemanOrSheRa · 03/06/2017 20:18
Ooh that looks nice Ready. Did you follow a recipe or make it up as you went along?
Food for today:
Brunch - bacon, scrambled eggs, tomato all fried in butter, half an avocado. Small bowl of FF yogurt and double cream.
Small portion of leftover Moussaka mid afternoon.
Dinner - chicken thighs stuffed with feta, chopped olives, garlic and oregano, wrapped in bacon. Baked courgettes and spinach wilted in butter.
Water - 3l so far. On my 4th litre now.
HemanOrSheRa · 03/06/2017 20:28
