My day typically starts off with bacon and a hot chocolate drink made with heavy cream for breakfast.
For lunch I've been eating a lot of French onion soup which I make by substituting pork rinds for the layer of bread.
Dinner usually consists of some type of red meat, chicken or seafood.

I have been feeling awful lately, and am got to the point where I couldn't even face another piece of meat..So I have now started subbing with veggie alternatives (Tofu), and upping my carb count a bit. I feel already a bit better.
Breakfast- Bullet Coffee, Greek Yogurt and Strawberries
Lunch- Tofu and courgette in broth, with ginger,chili and a spoonful of coconut oil
Dinner- 1 aubergine fried in coconut oil, with medium curry powder and one tomato

Snacks: 20 Almonds; bit of sugar free chocolate

1 cup of Sencha green tea and 2.5 liters of water.
I definitely need more veg-and fruit, it just suits me better, I think.

I still can't get myself to eat breakfast. I'm not usually hungry until about noon. The I usually eat chicken or tuna and a green veggie. For dinner I usually have red meat and a green veggie as well. Lots and lots of water....missing out on snacks though!

Hi there Everyone

Well done with your LCHF determination and progress! Thanks for sharing what works for you and what/how you like to eat during the day. Great!

Here's an encouraging link, I suggest you have a look at it http://iamdez.com/2012/12/carb-high-fat-lifestyle-and-my-family/

All of the best with our your adventure. I am so happy to share it with you as well.

On my side, I am making good progress as well. I notice the less carbs I consume and the higher fat I eat (regardless of calories consumed) the less craving I have and the leaner I am becoming,

Have a beautiful day Smile
