Low Carb/Carbless Meals

It's been almost a week since i started myself on a low carb/carbless diet, wanna look better for my wedding day i think, hahaha.

Oh well, my wife and i have been starting this way of eating while she's trying out the Phaselean thingy from Alterni. It's a starch blocker, not a oil blocker. Dunno how effective it'll be after a month but so far, 6 days into the diet, she's lost 3 kg and me around 2 kg, better than nothing rite :P

We're still eating loads of food though. The diet doesn't make you starve yourself, you even have to eat 5 meals a day, Breakfast, Lunch, Tea, Dinner, Supper to make sure you're never hungry.

According to them being hungry stores fat, which makes you not lose weight efficiently.

Oh and before you think that we're eating all the bland and lousy tasteless food, NO we're not.

We're still enjoying mcdonalds, kfc and a&w, just drop the buns, fries, potatoes, soft drinks, you still can eat the chicken, coleslaw, big macs without the buns, the patties vege and tomatoes inside is edible. On top of that you can just cook stuff, like burger patties, sausages, eggs, chicken, fish, meat (whatever kind of meat).

No starving on this diet, just eat moderately, palm sized of whatever meat/fish you can get cooked anyway you like, curry, rendang, kunyit fried, curry fried. Well that's the few stuff i tried to make though not all turned out well, gotta get more tips from mom.

Ayam Goreng Kunyit with loads of cucumber and tomatoes on the side :P
i cooked this yay)

I've cooked some food over the weekend too, no carbs just meat, vege, eggs, fish. Fruits comes in the second phase of the diet, after you've gotten used to a lower level of sugar in your blood.

Hard Boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, omelette, sunny side up, all are edible.

What i feel when i started this diet, the first few days were still ok, then i start feeling a bit lethargic, because of the lower sugar levels in the blood, but at the end of the week, i'm okay again, maybe the body has gotten used to it.

Well so far so good, lets see what kind of progress we'll reach later at the end of the program.

What i miss most from my carbs were my potatoes :( my wonderful potatoes, fries, mashed potatoes and so on and so forth, Wifey misses her ice lemon teas, hahaha all the sugar and stuff. But we'll strive on for healthier meals :)

Eating healthily is something good.

Yes, there are a lot of food that tastes good, even without the carbs..

Happy dieting!

yeah, and i thought dieting was hard, the hard dieting would be those trying to lose fatty food and oil. That's hard.

Low Carbs dieting is i think easier, and quite effective too
