Greetings Friends and Zero Carb Family. My Spirits are getting higher everyday. My Energy is much better. I anticipated doing some yard work today. When I got home yesterday I started to do a little. Well I aggravated my wound a little. Jeez what an idiot lol. Not bad but, just a little aggravation in the hand. It was feeling so much better that I thought I could use it. Oh well.
Next is a response I started to post in the comment section of my last post. It became rather long so I thought I would posted here. There are some good points for those just starting out on Zero Carb or need a good Kick in the Pants to Rev Up the Weight Loss.
Hey jimnpol, I tell you what: If you are eating dairy drop it like a bad habit. I mean all dairy what-so-ever. Don't eat planned meal times. Oh no! Eat when your body tells you it's hungry. While eating if you feel satisfied at one point just stop. So what if you have a plate half full. When hunger stops just stop eating and put up the food for another time. I tell you when I am oh so strict to these rules the weight comes off with ease.
We have to break old habits. Like "Clean Your Plate" or "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day"........No, No, and No.
We all have to LISTEN to our BODIES. It knows what it needs: Food when hungry, Water when thirsty.
If you are using any kind of artificial sweetener that is a big NO NO. If so drop it.
While trying to lose weight keep it simple. The majority of the time I eat Fatty Beef Brisket. In the past I ate Ground Beef that was simply crumbled in a pan. Yes, I do add some spices to give it some kick. If you are using Salt, use just a little or just drop it for now. I like to also cook the brisket on the pit about two hours to get a little flavor then finish it in the oven. The recipes I make are on occasions and maybe I will use them more often when I am down to where I need to be which is not at the moment, but I am getting there.
The most important thing is not to obsess over it. Make it a part of your regular day. Arm yourself with plenty of quick easy meals. I often grill lots of steaks and burgers and freeze them along with my daily meals.
A meal for me is always just a quick nuke away if I decide or can't cook anything. While out on the road: Burger Joints are the easiest places to go. Just order the meat. Tell them "I just want the meat in a container, No veggies or bread. So what if they look at you weird who cares. I don't know if you have a Jack in the Box where you live. The are the easiest of all. I say "Three large meat patties" and they say "That will be $2.98" They serve it in a nice little bowl. I get my free glass of water and a fork and knife from them and chow down. So easy even I can do it lol.
Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Now is the Time, It may never come Again!!!
