Rascal bach, you have no idea how hard I'm laughing at your last post.  You are so funny.

Interesting.  How are you doing it? I've been on 75-100g carbs per day for a while and that's difficult. I can't imagine how you're 0%ing. Is the the keto diet?

Anyway, share? 😘

I wonder if someone could invent crisp-flavoured non-calories ...

Reens, the first week was horrendous because I was not used to eating so much protein and veg without some rice, pasta, spuds and  especially bread.
There was a doctor on the telly and couple of years ago saying do not cut bread out of your diet because in the UK we rely on it so much for fibre.
I quickly learnt how to modify my eating by having eggs and meats for breakfast,  adding in a spring onion or some chilli flakes or Worcester sauce. Then throughout the day,  lots of small salads with fish (especially mackerel ) chicken,  Turkey mince and veg.  Keep on with the multi vitamin,  green tea, garlic and cod liver oil.  Add in balsamic vinegar and a touch of olive oil,  lemon and lime juice.  Also loads of water and no sugar juice (70p from lidl)
Basically,  get the calories in and make it tasty, a few small meals, don't go hungry and train like you mean it. Then, every two weeks,  have a blow out, I had fish and chips today, last time I had the Salmon's home made peetsa and it was amazing. (and wine of course ).

After six weeks of training, I started taking protein shakes too.  It helps massively with post training recovery and adds to the calories and protein for growth. There was no point in taking the shakes earlier as my body was still getting used to training hard at that regime again, any earlier and they would be of little benefit because it's too much change all at once.

 Less than 4 more weeks to go.

How are you getting on with the low carbs?

Pretty good actually. 150g Skyr with berries (about 2x 50 gr of either or: blackberries, raspberry, blueberries, strawberries) and linseed, with a teaspoon of honey, for breakfast, or low carb bread, toasted with a bit of marmalade or eggs, depending on my mood and energy levels.
Having lots of salads these days, mostly with avocado and boiled eggs, goats cheese, berries. Mackerel for sure, lots of fish and chicken or lean beef. Mushrooms are great for a variety of sauces or accompaniment and I love an aubergine. When I'm on my own for a meal, it can be an omelette with various toppings or for instance,  I'll fry aubergine, mushrooms, rede pepper and spring onions in olive oil with a piece of meat. Luckily here in NL you can buy pre-prepped bags of different wok-mixes to which you can add sauce or melted  creamcheese and that makes it easy to serve something interesting with fish or meat. Or even, just a veggie meal.
When Pat and G are home, I'll make something low-carb and give them pasta with it.

Last week it was bacon, goatscheese and pumpkin, cooked in veg broth, cheese melted into a sauce,  a piece of lean beef... and they had linguine with it. There's a load of recipes on pinterest.


My issue atm is keeping up energy levels due to a med I've had to take, side effects are joint ache, musclle ache, stomache gripes and headache. I've only got 5 days to go tho, so I'm looking forward to that. It's made me less enthusiastic to go to the gym but because of the healthy diet, my weight is relatively stable.At the start of the meds, I gained a few kilos but that's mostly all gone now.

I'm also a bit addicted to this atm, it's got various flavours and is great as a snack:

Everyone sounds so ... healthy .... and fit ....  :(

It's all too much ...  especially on a hot day like today (I'd like to sit in the sun, but I have to mow the lawn).

A Nobel Prize to the inventor of edible packaging for crisps.
Not waiting for the others.

Perhaps someone could devise recipes incorporating crisp packaging ...
