Days 36, 37 and 38 Zero Carb Diet 8/29/2013

Hello everyone,

Still here, Sorry for the slight delay. All is doing well in Zero Carb land. I don't like to get too personal, but my job requires unexpected business trips and when that occurs as of recent I will not be able to update until I get back. So don't despair if you don't see a post for 1-4 days, I will be back and update and tell of any significant issues that may have happened during the time away.  I arrived home late to night and thought I would give an update even though it is very late.

So far all is well. I really don't find traveling too hard now a days. Their is always a burger establishment somewhere nearby if not available at the hotel. I was fortunate and the hotel I stayed at offered half pound burger patties A la carte. I did ask for some provolone cheese since american cheese can be a little suspicious side. I did do a dab of mayonnaise and a little spicy mustard on top to the burgers too. Most of the time at work I eat my burgers just plain. I grill them outside and they have a wonderful taste from being charbroiled and that is all the flavor I need. 

Cravings are still an issue. I have not broken that inconvenient little thorn on the side. Do people on Zero Carb ever lose the cravings? I don't know. I suspect with lots of time they will subside. This could be the downfall of some who cave in and have to start over or give up. All I know is that I do not intend to give up. I am enjoying the new freedom from carbs and the overall good feeling I have enjoyed this past month. I could have gained another 10 pounds instead of losing over 13 pounds so far. I do get stalls or plateaus as Denis put it and I have accepted them as natural and won't let that get me down. Thanks for all the support. I will report back again tomorrow (latter today) with an update.

  1. Connor, are you talking about cravings for carbohydrates, especially something sweet, or are you simply hungry for more food?

    If they are cravings for carb, do not worry, they will disappear 100%. If it is hunger, it requires a different approach. First thing to check is if your meat contains enough fat, this last one being, according to studies, the most powerful food item to cut down appetite.

    You should check how your cravings goes when you are have "eggs soaking in butter" compare to beef patties. Maybe you need to add a little butter to your patties? I do not say that you have to do it but you certainly have to look how you react to it because it is very easy to go overboard with 'added fats' and especially butter...

    Still, you patties look like containing a nice quantity of fat on the picture but cooking them (especially grilling) will cause a significant lost of fat. Try to see if there is a difference when you cook them in a pan and poor back on the meat all the melted fat…

    But, still, you are loosing 2.5 pounds per week which is optimal!!!

  2. Denis it is mostly for something sweet. All in all they are going away. I just have to be strong when going out with friends and spending time with family at gatherings. I will take your advice and add a little more fat to my diet. Thanks as always for your support.
