Low carb diet

Unread postby tex » Sat Nov 19, 2016 11:44 pm

The Admiral and I started a no carb diet this week which, while promoting low carb foods, is full of fat of all kinds to keep you feeling full. It began with a chicken and heavy sauce that had us both sick as dogs from too much fat. The sauce had butter on top of oily pesto that was just too much. A friend of ours (sail catamaran) had some esophagus issues and was encouraged to do this diet.....not a fat guy at all but lost 15 lbs. in two weeks and was never hungry or even had any craves. Well no wonder, if you're going to be sick to your stomach.

Anyway, we're back on track now but are only using near zero carb foods with our own fat level regulation. Not bad....the Admiral is down 4 lbs. and me 5 in the first 5 days. You can eat as much as you want of no carb stuff and even though our bodies are rocking and rolling from the changes in diet, no cravings! There's even a couple of permitted low carb beers out there for guys that can't give it up totally. I'll stay in touch.

Is all that fat good for the gall bladder? How about the triglycerides? I am to keep the carbs low because of sugar issues. Love pasta. Red sauce causes acid reflux. What about the fasting diet? :roll: That is where you eat only 4 days a week or something like that.
