Default 37 pounds and 20 inches and cravings gone!

So something I am really excited about is that I have made some new recipes that are becoming part of our regular menu and have allowed me to start losing weight and inches every day now.

Since I started doing this I have lost 37 pounds and 20 inches. This morning I dropped another pound and a half and am at my lowest weight in as long as I can remember. I am following Dr Stephen Phinneys Macro recommendations and raising my Fat was the ticket for me. Weight and inches are sliding off.

I have no more cravings, not even for bread anymore.
I eat way less food because I am so happy with my meals, and I know I can have a small portion later if I am hungry but usually I only eat breakfast and lunch now.
I am more relaxed so I eat smaller portions because I don't think I have to reach some random pre set macros. (except I do track just to make sure)
I eat much less calories naturally because I am full now.

I took my regular lasagna recipe and I replaced the noodle with sliced Chicken or Turkey breast from the deli. I have them slice it a little bit thicker than usual and start my casseroles with a layer in the bottom and for any second layer of "noodle". My Husband Loves it and we have made it at least once a week in the past few months. Before I hadn't made it in years because of the noodles. You can't even tell the difference. I did cut the tomato sauce back to cut the carbs and I use tomato paste to help give it more flavor without more carbs.

I have recently taken my Chicken and Beef Burrito Casseroles and done the same thing. We add a side salad with a low carb dressing and VOILA!

My husband has lost 15 pounds without doing anything different. He has cholesterol of 160 and completely normal blood pressure. He will be 70 in February and it is great to see him so healthy.

Isn't it awesome?!?!

So happy for you. It's kind of amazing how many recipes can be de-carbed without losing taste.

The poultry noodle lasagne sounds delicious - what a great idea! Thanks, and congratulations on your success!
