WOW! Your Triglicerides are more than HALF of what they were a few months ago. And without medication! That is MAAAAAAAAVALOUS! Sounds like this plan is working well for you. Keep us posted about your progress. Bet they'll be down another half by the end of the year!

Question Canola Oil?


I switched to it from olive oil but I didn't do much more than compare the nutrition info on the bottles.

Do you use canola oil?

Does anybody happen to know how to convert metric grams into cups and ounces? I could research this, but I'd rather be lazy.

Thanks, Rob, for the input on the cheesecake recipe!!! Now I can do some experimenting with different nut-based crusts and keep the yummy part (the cheesecake sans graham cracker crust)!!

I'm always interested in good recipes, so keep 'em coming!!!

Thanks everybody!

Here's a good conversion tool for US and metric conversions - in both directions. Bookmark it for future use, it's pretty helpful.

Plan: Protein Power
Stats: 280/258/228
Progress: 42%

I started PP Sept 12. I didn't follow the plan exactly, I sort of slid into the first week to clean out my fridge. But since I really started I've stuck with only one goal, to limit the carbs to less than 40 a day. I measured and my protein intake is supposed to be 140 grams a day. I thought that was a lot but it's easy to eat 1.5 pounds of meat a day, I love it. I don't worry about going over, a few times I was hungry and my 'snack' would be a piece of chicken or sausage. I just started fitday today to see what my intake is.

I've been lifting weights 4-5 times weeky since March and walk twice a day for 20-30 minutes. I lost ten pounds in March and April, then nothing until I started PP. I've lost another ten in the last three weeks, and that might have been more but had two weekend beer drinking binges (six cans!).

I haven't consulted with my doctor, but next month I'll have a checkup for some meds I'm taking. I'll ask for blood work then. My BP is up, but nothing to worry about.

So I can see this being my way of life forever. I don't even feel like playing with my carb level when I reach my goal weight. I'm not hungry anymore, I love my meals, and have great energy, certainly more than I had six weeks ago.

I'll see how I feel in a month.

Default PP plan

I started PP June 2 2002. I have no tread the Life Plan book and I think thats the question that start this thread. I call my diet the KISS PP. I kept a log for the first three weeks and figured out what I could eat that kept me at 30 grams of carb and 135 or more protein. Then I just kept eating it.

I've made some exceptions, during vacation and parties, but never for more than one meal in a row and some things are out like the simple carbs; sugars, fructose, honey, etc.

I didn't want to have to think about each meal and I decided that if I'm going to control my eating I've got to stop thinking of it as entertainment.

What I'm having trouble with now as I approach my goal weight I've figuring out what to add back so I stop losing weight. So I'm going to pick up the PPLP book and see what it has to say.

Thumbs up Who is following Protein Power

Hi, my husband and I are following a sort of combination of Atkins and Protein Power. Sorry, but don't have a real journal to post.

It's working for us. We are still losing and very satisfied with the results. I like Protein Power because more emphasis is put on quality proteins and fats.

Thumbs up Following PP Since Dec'99

Copied this from the thread "Why did you chose LC"...this is hubby and my story...B

LC Chose Me
I was asked this question in another thread so decided to post my answer here as well....I would have to say we chose this WOL for all of the above reasons...

Actually our story is pretty typical in the fact that we both were following high carb/low fat to the letter... I have always been very active exercising (swimming, walking etc)...but could not shed a pound... was very muscular but was disappointed in my overall appearance and attributed my added poundage to middle age...hubby was built typically like most middle age guys...tiny butt and nice looking legs but all his weight was in his belly...his family has a history of heart disease and diabetes so with most of the weight he was carrying around his middle he was a heart attack waiting to day a friend had mentioned he was reading a book called Protein Power and that the explanation of following a Low Carb diet made alot of sense to him...he passed it on to my hubby and he read it from cover to cover...hubby is one who does not make decisions on the spur of the moment and analyzes everything to death before acting ( Business Manager ) so when he came to me and expressed a desire to try LC I was amazed... first of all I was pissed off because I had high carb/low fat down to a science and for him to even suggest we eat bacon and eggs sent me ballistic.. on a whim I decided to indulge him... when I jump into something I research it diligently...if we were going to do this we were going to do it right I was flabbergasted when we both started losing weight...this was just too easy after starting the plan I searched for support online and found LC Canada and other great LC sites where things have now progressed a long way since I began this WOE... such wonderful supportive info out there now I began comparing different plans ie Atkins, PP, CAP etc. and for our lifestyle found PP worked best for us...when we started small amounts of LC fruits were not allowed on Atkins and the carb levels for induction/intervention were different etc...decided if it wasn't broke don't fix it hubby was taking lipitor for high chlor but since losing fifty pounds and in the best shape of his life he is now meds free... we are both examples of how this WOL does work and continues to work

Hi Heather! Check out the Canada forum <a target="_blank" href="">here (link).</a> There's a Calgary thread there.

Glad you're enjoying this new WOE! I'm doing the protein power thang, too. Sometimes I miss the junk food, but I don't miss the excess weight, blood sugar swings, acne and PMS! If I knew how much better I'd feel, I'd have done it years ago!

See you 'round! Feel free to drop by my journal!
