GOING CRAZY!!!
[quote=MV10][quote=corifeo]You... can’t lose weight and feel satisfied ... You need all three proteins, fat and carbohydrate. [/quote] Careful with those absolutes. I've lost 56 pounds since last year, all while eating more each day than I ever used to, and I never feel hungry. No hunger. Controlled steady weight loss. I cut way back on carbs (typically 20-30g/day), greatly increased fat, slightly increased protein (95g/day), started taking a multivitamin, and started taking a combo omega-3/6/9 supplement. You do not need to eat carbs, period. There is no medical condition associated with insufficient dietary carbs. Do your own research, don't take my word or corifeo's -- this is the Internet, after all. Everybody's an expert. :roll: [/quote] I agree, I have lost weight both ways, eating high carbs but counting calories & eating low carb higher calories. For me, especially when traveling, I find it easier to count calories because when i'm not at home preparing my own meals, I find the outside world is full of carbs. I also find that I gain my weight back very quickly if I eat too many carbs one day & I don't like the fluctuation in weight that low carb gives me. I do like that eat forces you to eat mostly whole foods though so I try to to eat similar on calorie count (whole foods but I add fruit or if I want sugar, I just count the calories & I don't have to worry about the weight gain like I do with low carb.

GOING CRAZY!!!
Hi Gnat824, I do log my food in daily, but I am going to pay better attention to which foods fill me up more & which don't. I have been eating a whopping 110-140 grams of protein a day so you would think I wouldn't be hungry! That's where I argue the point with the experts that say protein & fat give you more satiety to keep you fuller longer. I do like having celery & PB2 and find that is a very good snack. Oatmeal doesn't fill me up at all, neither do an ounce of nuts. Can you explain what you mean by deficits? At first I thought you meant how many calories under your daily goal you went but that can't be possible since you mentioned a 1000 calorie deficit. When I count calories I try to stay as close to 1200 as possible since all the calorie calculators I have found support that number is what I need to lose weight (slowly). If I am doing low carb I eat about 1600. I'll share my food journal so you can see ;o)

[quote=mrspackrat]And this is why I don't do lots of cardio, it just depletes glucose and drives you to eat carbs :)[/quote] I haven't been running for over a month so I know that is not the case. Cardio in moderation is good for heart health (not necessarily running) but any exercise that gets your heart rate going.

GOING CRAZY!!!
It is simply maddening to me that I can have such knowledge in food & nutrition but I can't figure out what foods to eat to lose weight & feel satisfied! When I go low carb, I dream about sugar cookies, sourdough bread, pizza, & doughnuts. I eat 1600 calories of high protein & fat & I am still craving something else (carbs). If I calorie count & stick to 1200-1300 calories, I tend to choose high carb but healthy foods (like fruit), medium protein & low fat but i'm so hungry at the end of the day. I can't seem to strike a happy balance on any plan that I can sustain for a long period of time. I know eating whole foods, no matter which plan I choose is very healthy but I would like to lose weight too. I was running regularly but now that I injured my knee, I can't do much exercise so I have to rely on getting the food right & I feel like I need an expert in science & nutrition to figure this out! Just freakin frustrated!!!

FOOD WHILE ON ROAD TRIPS
I started creating my meals for the road trip. I am packing cut watermelon (which I may or may not eat depending on whether I decide to cut carbs or not), sliced carrots & celery, pb2 (which I can mix with water for dipping the veggies in), fiber one original cereal (I try to stay wheat & gluten free but this cereal keeps me regular which is important on the road, plus it is a good snack to occupy time while sitting in a car for 14 hours), hard boiled eggs, babybel light cheese, & Quest bars (my dessert treat is 1 bar at night while watching t.v.).

Thank you rains120, I will try your suggestions & thanks for letting me know about the ice. My husband wants to end up in Juno becuase it's the closet part of the state from California but I think if we are going to drive 3700 miles we might as well see Anchorage & Fairbanks too. Where do you suggest we must see. We love nature :o)

FOOD WHILE ON ROAD TRIPS
I love salmon when someone else cooks it. For me, most fruits just keep me craving more & more which is why weight watchers didnt work for me. I'm sure it may look like my weight is ok but I was 104 which was a normal weight for my height (5ft 1"). I have gained 10lbs in the past 2 months by eating processed foods like fiber one original cereal & by eating too much fruit. I know that whether I go high fat or high protein, I need to cut back on the carbs. I may try staying under 100 carbs per day & eating whole foods (except one atkins bar or quest bar)& keeping to 1200-1300 calories & see how that works. I wish I could drop the bars but I have to have at least one sweet treat I look forward to eating at night :o) I love berries so I will look forward to those, thanks for the info

FOOD WHILE ON ROAD TRIPS
We had a watermelon already cut up & I just dove into it so I guess I am counting calories today instead of doing atkins /o: I get so frustrated that I am always switching up between atkins or low carb & counting calories. I hate not being able to eat fruits on atkins. I stay about 90% whole foods most of the time with only an Atkins bar or Quest bar (all other food is usually whole/non processed foods. But when I eat fruit I tend to go crazy. I eat 2-3 pounds of watermelon in a day! For the road trip counting calories is probably easier but I will still eat non processed foods.

FOOD WHILE ON ROAD TRIPS
Hoser, I do like hummus but haven't managed to eat it on Atkins. How do you make it & stay under 50 net carbs a day? I have a Vitamix so I could make it ahead & keep it in the cooler if I can make it "low carb" enough.

FOOD WHILE ON ROAD TRIPS
Fruit (for the most part) & granola are not part of low carb/Atkins I can eat 1 serving of nuts but they are dangerous because they are so caloric & could easily be overeaten when you sitting in the car for 14 hours ;o)

FOOD WHILE ON ROAD TRIPS
My husband & I are driving from California to Alaska in a few weeks & I am already stressing out about what I am going to eat while we are on the road for 5 days! Does any have suggestions for a daily menu while on the road? It will require non cooked meals obviously & fast food won't be available much through the long stretch through remote parts of Canada. We are, however taking a cooler. I want to keep my calories at no more than 1400 & eat 55-65% fat.

hair loss please help :(
I just saw this subject on Dr. Oz's show Friday 7/04/14. He said if you see a lot of hair in the drain it could be a lack of zinc.

Excellent snack: corn on the cob
I love corn but never eat it since there really isn't any nutritional value in it.

So, Who Takes What???
I take actual greens. I put kale & spinach in my vitamix along with carrots & usually a small piece of fruit for sweetness (usually grapefruit or strawberries or raspberries) along with ice & cold water. I have 32oz twice a day since I don't really like eating veggies or having to cook them.

What exercising will reduce breast size quicker?
RUNNING! I was a 34DDD when I started my weight loss journey at 129 a few years ago. I am now between a 34C and a 32C/D but not as firm /o: I run but wear a very supportive bra and it still didn't help with the sagging. I think when you lose that much weight they are bound to droop a bit.

Atkins Ketosis and going over 50 net grams of carbs
The sticks are not a reliable way to test for ketosis as Dr. Atkins states in his book. I bought them at one point myself but they were not accurate & I was told by several senior lifetime maintenance members on Atkins not to use them. The best way to tell is are you having cravings, to you have energy, and are you losing weight (either slow or fast depending on what phase you are in & how much you have to lose. I can tell because I drop anywhere from 2/10 of a pound to a full pound per day when I am doing induction. I thought there was only one atkins book "a new atkins for a new you" but found "the atkins diet revolution" which has (to me) a lot more info in it that I found helpful. I have been on Atkins on & off for over 2 years & still go back to those 2 books on a regular basis to refresh myself on the facts versus what I have tweeked the diet to be. Every time a try to "cheat" the atkins induction approach, I re-read the books & see why I am not losing weight :o) My understanding is that, if you are on induction & you eat bread, sugar, anything in the carb/sugar category with over 5 carbs, you slow down the process of switching your body from burning carbs for fuel to burning fat for fuel. It then takes you longer to complete induction. I have experienced this through trial an error by noticing that after sugar/carb intake, it takes at least 2 days of STRICT 20 net carbs or less with induction BY THE BOOK & TO THE LETTER" to get back to losing weight. And, mind you, this is with running for at least an hour in a fasted stated too! The books say not to go more than 6 waking hours without eating because it can spike your blood sugar level. I get up & go running less than an hour later, run for an hour to 1.5 hours, then eat protein right away (eggs, cheese, etc.) along with 33ounces of water.

does anybody out there know any good protein shakes?
I also use Isopure carb zero whey protein isolate in vanilla or banana cream. You can find it at GNC but it is more expensive ($51.99) for a 3lb tub. It is a top of the line product that is absorbed quickly & used by athletes who need higher protein for recovery/muscle building. I like it because it comes in powder form and lots of flavors to choose from, 50 grams of protein and best of all ZERO CARBS which is great for super low carvers like me. I mix mine with 30 calorie 0 net carb almond milk, but they are great with smoothies, mixed with plain Greek yogurt etc.

does anybody out there know any good protein shakes?
If you are on Atkins, I have found that the Atkins shakes stall my weight loss. I found a protein shake at Costco called Premium Nutrition in chocolate or vanilla. They have 30 grams of protein which is good for those of us who don't eating all the meat on atkins but it only has 2 or 3 net carbs depending on which flavor you pick. They are also much cheaper than the atkins shakes. I believe you get a 24 pack that are the same size as the atkins one's if not bigger & it is $24 so $1 a shake.
