This plan just fits more into the plan I want to do for the rest of my life, We can still share ideas, since we all have eliminated meats , but still eat fish/seafood mostly or not eating any animal products, This site has a lot more in common compare to the others that are meat eaters, and are not planning to change any ways soon.

Default I Eat Fish Too

I, too, am a pesco vegetarian. In the Judaic tradition fish is considered "nuetral". (Of course shellfish is strictly forbidden). I love smoked salmon and I often have a generous portion of it with 2oz. cream cheese for breakfast. Kippers are another delightful food and a real flavor treat for breakfast. Sautee them in butter and serve them with eggs for breakfast. Sometimes I enjoy a huge scoop of tuna salad on a bed of lettuce and some tomato and raw onion slices for lunch.
If you're eating you can always order a fish entre. Most restaurants prepare delicious fish meals.
If you're Jewish ( even if you're not for that matter) you might enjoy a nice peice of "gefillte fish" with horseradish for a lunch or a snack. Just check the sugars and carb count on the label. Not every brand is low carb.
I hope I helped you somewhat in your quest for ideas as to how to vary your diet in fishy ways. Best of luck to you.
Cheers!

The smoked salmon I mentioned is what is also called lox. Lox technically is not raw fish, it is smoked fish. It is also 100% delicious. As I said I enjoy a plate of lox with 2 oz. cream cheese, lettuce,tomato, raw onion slices and olives. This is a meal fit for royalty in my opinion.
I have to try to keep my carbohydrate intake to the 20 gram level. I am having a great deal of difficulty losing any weight thus far, but I am reaping other health benifits such as lowered cholesterol etc. I'm hoping that by following induction strictly my body will eventually respond and start dropping the excess poundage.
Cheers!

Default Good to see other Pescos out there

I have been a pesco vegetarian for 14 years and haven't heard
of anyone else until now. My fiance loves to tell people that I a Veggie
on Atkins for the reaction. You are on Atkins and you don't eat red
meat, chicken or pork? What do you eat? Black soy beans are quite
low in carbs, about 2 net grams per 1/4 cup I think. I remember a long
time ago someone posted about an East Indian bean that was also low.
Does anyone recall the name? Or any other low carb bean? I would
like some new variety!

has, the Indian bean that I think you are talking about is "chana dahl" or "chana dal", it has a glycemic index of 5, which is lower than peanuts and soybean.

I am low carb veggie and my staples are: nuts, flax meal, nutritional yeast (which has truck loads of vitamins), unsweetened soymilk, and of course veggies and 1-2 fruits/day. Surprisingly, I don't really eat fake meat products at all. tofu? occasionally, they are so NOT flavorful compared to those I grew up with (am Asian). I only eat cheese if they are on sale and don't eat eggs at all. I think my protein intake is not very high but my healthy fat intake is pretty darn good

Thanks Nutty for thinking of Chana Dal, I will go looking for some this week.
I eat a lot of the same, I guess that's a no-brainer. I love nuts and seeds &
will drink up to 3 cups of unsweetened soy milk a day. I used to use Engevita
yeast for its nutritional qualities but fell out of the habit. Are there other
yeasts you find help balance your diet. If so I am interested in hearing
about nutritional yeasts. Oh yeah, the soy balognas yuck! I will eat some
of the prepared burgers like Bocca or Moneys though, they are pretty good.
What do you think of the soy cheese? I haven't found one I really like yet.
Sometimes I have to pretend to like it to keep My Mom's cholesterol intake
low! Mom it's great it's just like real cheese!
