It's hard to believe , but I actually lost weight eating a diet full of cheeses and butter. I love butter, and on a low carb diet I can eat cheese and butter freely without gaining weight. In fact, I actually lose weight quickly and lose my cravings!!!!!
Sometimes, I can't get a hold of my cravings! I feel out of control.. It's at those desperate times that I turn to low carbs!
Over the last 5 days, I've eaten a considerable amount of creamy organic butter and sliced hard cheese and I've lost 5 pounds. Of course, I've totally restricted eating carbs including not eating fruit at all. I did eat salad and vegetables. Low carb diets really can help you drop weight quickly
What did I eat on my 5 day low carb diet? In addition to butter, sour cream, eggs, cheese, and nuts , I ate lots of green and white veggies ( as opposed to red or yellow- which contain lots of sugar)
The Vegetables I ate
small amounts of tomato ( 1/4 cup chopped)
very small amounts of grated carrot for color only
seaweed ( nori roasted)
I'm a vegetarian so I ate vegetarian protein
fresh Mozzarella balls
I ate lots of fat:
Organic Sour Cream
Blue cheese dressing
nuts ( in limitation about 20 day)
My Meals. What did I make?
Egg salad with fresh dill, chopped parsley, celery and mayo
Omelets with mushrooms and melted cheese cooked in butter
Roasted kale chips and roasted mushrooms in olive oil
Celery sticks and romaine lettuce leaves and blue cheese dressing.
Cut up cucumber, celery , and romaine leaves with cream cheese dip
cauliflower sauteed in butter and sprinkled with cheddar cheese
Fresh Mozzarella balls and fresh basil and olive oil and a few cherry tomatoes
Mashed avocado with chopped celery and fresh squeezed lemon eaten with romaine lettuce leaves
Riced cooked cauliflower with melted butter
Fresh Spinach and garlic soup
Mushroom, Cilantro ( and feta) Omelet
creamy broccoli soup
cauliflower cheese fritters
Marvelous Mini Quiches for breakfast or lunch ( mushroom, spinach, or broccoli)
Steamed Artichokes and Lemon ( couldn't be more simple and yet very tasty)
I felt extremely gluttonous eating all that rich food. , but I also felt satisfied and happy and never once craved sugar or had any other cravings. I ate as much as I wanted of all the low carb vegetarian foods and l I lost 5 pounds effortlessly, got off sugar, and feel great.
I feel that I ate too many eggs and way too much cheese to make this a daily diet..
I'll try to keep the next week lower in carbs than normal, but I love fruit and don't think hard cheese is that healthy. But it was a quick fix that stopped my cravings , and it worked easily ....
What is a low carb diet? It's a diet that contains a very low carbohydrate count. In my case, I ate about 35 ish carbohydrates/day.. I really didn't count ; I estimated
