Days 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56 and 57 Zero Carb Diet 9/17/2013

Hello everyone,

Sorry once again for the small absence. Things are going great with all things Zero Carb. The weight reduction has slowed a bit, but the cravings have decreased dramatically. I am feeling stronger than ever about my commitment to this new way of eating. I am feeling refreshed in the morning and getting really great sleep. I drink coffee in the morning because I like it and not for the caffeine. Am I addicted to caffeine? I don't really know. I tried decaf and the taste just was not there.

Saturday I entertained 3 very close friends. I made a variety of foods to include carbs. While these friends support me in my way of eating they are not interested at this point in time in changing the way they eat. So I did make them some side dishes that they are accustomed to eat. Like potato salad, rice and chili beans. I also grilled some Chicken quarters, Bratwurst and Garlic sausage. I can honestly say that it did not bother me to make these foods at the least and I was not tempted to eat them at all. I feel that this was a good test of my will power. The only thing I do have to admit is that I way overate. I think it was a self defense mechanism to keep from eating the carbs I made. Thus I think it may explain the slight weight gain and no loss for the past two days. I made sure to pack each friend a plate of food to take home at the end of the evening to include all of the carbs I made. I am strong, but no need to have those things in the ice box. I had a really great time with the guys and I am going to try to convince one of them to at least try LC or VLC. Out of the three I feel that he is the most receptive one. Thanks for your support.

  1. I am happy for you cravings are diminishing; your brain connections are getting used to your new 'eating reality' where there is no carbohydrates to give you a dopamine rush… all good!!!!

    Then you bring up a crucial point on Zero Carb: overeating. Of course, when sharing a nice meal with friends, even if all the Zero Carb stuff you need are available, the "ambiance" tends to make one eat more so he feels "part of the group". And, of course, the mechanisms to "stop eating when full" seems to be disconnected…

    But as you see with your weight, it is not that dramatic. So you can decide to make it very occasional but certainly not an habit… especially a few days in a row… But everyone has to decide for themselves what thier metabolism can tolerate. If you have weight to loose, it may not be the best road. But if your are on a "maintenance phase", it can be a "choice for celebrations"….!!!


  2. Connor don't get discourage with the slow down. It is perfecly normal. Enjoy the ride all the way to your goal weight. Just stay the course and you will get there.
