I havenít been able to go ZeroCarb for more than a few days, but the more I read the more I want to try it for a longer time. When I need to get back on track, what works best for me is higher protein, cut out all the extras like cheese and nuts, something close to Stillman/Dukan or Dr Westman at it's strictest levels. IF and very low carb is great, and It's not much of a leap from there to ZeroCarb. After the holidays...famous last words....

I have done zero carb with straight meat, but it seems to make me feel peckish after. That same meat paired with a salad and dressing does not.

I don't know if that feeling will go away if I continue, if it is a "mind habit," or what. I have yet to be in a place where I could make that my main distraction I go back to what I usually do too quickly.

There is a podcast called Corporate Warrior, the interviewer is only OK, but he recently had Shawn Baker and a two parter with Ted Naiman. "Going back to what you usually do" seems common with zero carb...like you hear your Mom in your head saying eat your greens, or the studies on cancer and vegetable consumption scroll across my brain Other than Baker, the reluctance to stay with just meat seems psychological, a "mind habit" for them and me too. But as Marvin said back in the first post...it is so Simple! Consider Naiman's MEAL (meat, eggs, added oils (minimum needed to cook and dress salad) and Leaves, then just drop the L.

Hello all, I was redirected here by ~Jey100.

A question for you all doing ZC. This is my second go at trying Zero Carb, but I just donít think I can hack it.

I have not been totally ZC, I am still drinking an erythritol flavored drink a couple of times a day. I find that when I try to drink just water, I still feel hungry. I may feel full for about a 1/2 hour, but then I am hungry again, or my stomach seems unsettled, almost gurgly.

My usual meals have consisted of:

Breakfast: A package of bacon, or a few eggs with crumbled bacon and a little cheese. Usually 1 lb. of bacon, though.

Lunch: Sometimes skipped, sometimes 2 double quarter pounders from Mcds, or a Strip steak or ribeye with some butter.

Dinner: Steak or two with some butter. Sometimes skip dinner if had a big/late lunch.

Today I had to work and skip breakfast, so I had one erythritol beverage in the morning, and then at about 3 pm, I had a 12 oz. Ribeye at Longhorns. Got a bacon cheeseburger to bring home, and ate that around 4. Was still hungry so I made a 1/2 package of bacon. Itís almost 7, and Iím hungry and I feel like I could go eat a bag of cookies.

Iím about ready to quit and go back to Keto/LCHF. That has worked for me before, but I liked the simplicity of this, and people seem to have great results with it. I have lost about 8 lbs. so far, since Christmas. My pants do fit better, but I feel like everyday is a struggle.

Before I give up, does anyone have any tips or advice? Iím pretty sure I canít last much longer. Also, I think about food a lot, and sometimes I think Iíd rather not eat than have another steak. I feel like a failure for giving up again...

Sorry for the long post.

I still canít add advice, I do not stick with it long. Would suggest you check in on the websites list back in #122 where the folks who do Zero Carb post. Shawn Baker's experiment group and some of the FB pages listed there. Most start off with their groups "rules" for zero carb, some donít use cheese, as you know, most would advise dropping the sweet drink.

The fatty protein and 3 fistfuls of veggie works just as well for me (and the 3 veg is a max, none are required if you donít want them) avoiding all faux breads, desserts, etc. Dr Naiman's MEAL (above) is also good.

Anne, it sounds to me like you need to eat more meat. This is a fairly common phenomenon when people start ZC; even petite women used to nibbling on salads find they can pack away several pounds (yes, pounds) of meat a day, especially at the beginning.

My advice to you would be to eat plenty, and eat more often. Don't worry about "overeating." It will all balance out.

Definitely drop the sweetened soda. It may seem harmless, but sweet tastes derail almost everybody.

Good luck! Glad you're giving it another try. (I've been ZC since 2009.)
