Default the recipe !

OK Rob, excellent. Let's have the muffin recipe !! Sounds very good.
I am also interested on your approach b/c I think there is a very different LC approach required for those folks who are around the 200+lb mark and those of us in the 160-170 range, ie much closer to acceptable body weight/ composition, but looking to LC to get down to where we want to be and not sacrifice any of that hard-earned muscle

Hello again Rob.

It appears that your muffin recipe holds some interest for others too! Thanks for sharing. I also find your approach to LC helpful.

Default Calorie Counting

Hi Rob, You seem to know a bunch about all of this stuff and I'm really enjoying your input and advice. I do have a question for you though. One of the reasons I got so turned onto this way of eating is because of the promise that I wouldn't have to count calories so much. Do you think the old 10X or 12X body weight caloric formula still applies? I'm just real curious because I'm so close to what I want to weigh, but I seem stuck getting this last 5 to 10 lbs off. I try not to complain too much because I have stopped smoking while incorporating this new eating lifestyle, so I just chucked off the stall because of that - I mean, I didn't gain any weight either. But, if there's a way to push down these extra lbs. I'm interested to know how.

Further to my quandary about being stalled, I have added some of Dr. Atkins muffins and Aunt Paula's brownies into my diet. Do you think these might be adding too many carbs? It's not like I'm eating a box a day or anything for sure. Just for snack purposes in between meals.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Wow talk about sudden popularity!!

DebA,

( in my opinion) calories definitely do count but we dont count them formally . At the end of the day if you consume 1500 Cal while doing LC ( very easily done) and you should be taking in 1200 then it will go slow or even stall . So my advice is stick to 10 X body weight , definitely not more . Less if possible but not less than 1000 Cal . This is the minimal for basal metabolic rate ie: essential cellular function . Also , if you go too low you will get bored and hungry and it will all definitely stop . Be careful of carbs when you are eating fat !! the combination is lethal . Carbs = Insulin = fat into cells = adiposity . However I find that a small rise in carbs can stimulate your metabolism. Hope that helps .


PeterJ,

do look at PP , it will tell you how much protein you should eat in order to prevent your body from loosing lean body mass .


PJB and Kat here is my fab muffin recipe . Hope you enjoy em as much as I do . They are 2.5 g each


heat oven to 175 deg C
place 12 paper cookie cups into a 12 cookie tray

dry mix:

2 scoops soy protein isolate ( plain or vanilla ) mine is UK made
1/2 cup splenda
1/2 tsp stevia
1/2 cup golden flax seeds . Grind them in grinder
40 grams ground almond ( almond meal)
40 grams unsweetened dessicated coconut
1/2 tsp salt ( use potassium salt for better health )
2 heaped tsp baking powder
4 tbl butter . mix in as if making a crumble pastry mixture



wet mix:

1 cup water
80 ml buttermilk
1 and 1/2 tbl almond essence
1 and 1/2 tbl vanilla


add wet to dry and mix well

spoon into muffin cups ( average 1 and 1/2 spoonfuls per cup)

decorate tops with poppy seeds

place in oven and bake for 35 minutes


remove from oven and from cookie tray and allow to cool preferably overnight , they taste better that way .

You can play with the flavourings , cinnamon , chocolate and with the toppings ,sesame seeds etc.

Sorry I use cookie and muffin interchangeably ( I am in the UK )

ENJOY !!

Default stalls

Hi Rob!
Thanks so much for the recipe. I have some in the oven as we speak.

Just one more question if I may.........
when you increase your carb intake slightly to break a stall-----is this by having more veggies, fruit, -- or do you really break out and have some "forbidden " foods. I am stalled with only about 7 lbs. to go to reach goal----so I don't want to overdo and get the scale going in the wrong direction! Thanks again.

PJ the first time I ate something really forbidden like real candy ,I felt awful for days with gastric discomfort and heart burn !!!

So I dont recommend you do that .

I would rather treat myself to a yumm LC cheesecake or eat some extra nuts or fruit etc.

Default Cheescake

Hi iRob. Since you're giving out recipes, what's this about LC Cheescake?!!!! How is that possible? I've been making REAL cheesecakes for years (it's like a holiday tradition for me) and I would LOVE to know how to avoid the excess carbs and still make one.

Thanks very much!!

Debra

DebA the way to make LC cheesecake is to use AS in place of sugar and for the crust use a nut meal eg: ground almond and butter . All the other ingredients are the same eg: cream cheese ,eggs ,cream , etc...

There are many recipes for LC cheesecake here and many other places on the web . Just type in "cheesecake " in the search icon at the top of this page

Default Bloodwork results --

Hi all --

Before we got on our flax muffin kick we were talking about bloodwork results -- DebA reported how much better her cholesterol and triglycerides were in her last bloods, and I congratulated her, suggesting that my first bloods since going low carb had just been taken, and I promised to tell you all how it had gone --

Cholesterol -- 220, Triglycerides, 270

Now before you say anything -- the cholesterol is about the same as my last bloods, taken back in March. But my triglycerides are about HALF was they were in March! And this is the biggie: I was taking meds for my triglycerides then, and I'm not now!

So with triglyceride meds and on a low fat diet I was running about 600 -- without the meds and on a low carb diet I am half that. You tell me!

Default flax muffin recipe

Hi,

Anyone do the amounts conversions? I'm having a hard time figuring out what the amounts would be in US measurements...

I also don't like coconut - maybe replacing that with more flax seeds or leaving it out would be ok...?
