I hope all had a wonderful Thanksgiving for those who celebrate it. I had a great time with family and friends. I ended up going to a relative's home this year for the celebration. It was nice not to be the main cook as I have been in the past. I don't mind pitching in with the clean up, but when folks come to my home for the celebration my loved one and I are the ones who end up cleaning up with no offers to help. OK, enough with the drama hahaha!!!
Any seasoned Zero Carber can tell you that sometimes it can be challenging not just eating out with friends and family, but holidays can be especially difficult for those new to this Way of Eating (WOE). It is so tempting to say "Oh well it's the holiday, I can teat myself today"........jeez what a giant killer!
Giant Killer indeed!!! Some folks don't understand that cheating on this way of eating can be the "Path of No RETURN". As any experienced ZCer can tell you carbs can be very addictive.
Anyhow I had a real nice time yesterday visiting withe family and friends and meeting new people. I ended up taking a 14 pound smoked Turkey all carved up and ready to eat. To tell you the truth I enjoy roasted Turkey much more especially if I made it. OK, I am not shy to boast about my cooking hahaha!!! Mines comes out moist and delish with the tons of herb butter I slather under and above the skin. I just love the dark meat.
So when folks I don't know observe me eating a plate full of meat the question is always "why just meat?" then I go into my Zero Carb rant....... then they look at me like I am crazy and shrug their shoulders and later complain how their gut is hurting with all those carbs expanding and expanding and expanding............
I just eat and smile because I am full, yet not hurting at all. That is the beauty of this way of eating. You eat until you are full and stop. No aching guts, just satisfaction of eating a great tasty meal.
I had a good if not Great time making new friends and discussing my way of eating curious folks. They almost always call it a low carb diet and I try to explain the difference and some get it and some just don't.
Tomorrow I am on my way to a gun show with friends in Dallas.....hmm I wonder what I will be eating.............ya never know until you get there......
Have a Great Zero Carb Day, Live Long, Stay Strong and Always Battle On!!!
