Two eggs scrambled with one sausage patty, half a jalepeno and tomatto.
Coffee with 1 tbsp cream and two equal packets.

Salad (Iceberg Lettuce, Spinach, Radish, Cucumber, Green Olives; two tbsp of mozz cheese) with 3 pieces of bacon and 2 tbsp of Bluecheese dressing.

Salad (Iceberg Lettuce; Spinach)topped with Flank steak that was cooked with jalepeno, tomatto and brocolli and 2 tbsp of Ranch dressing.

Celery with pimento cheese and cream cheese
Two pickles
String Cheese

Here is a sneak peak at my dinner salad, oh my goodness was it YUMMY!!!

    I would recommend the book "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell. It has changed what I eat.

    Ketoacidosis is dangerous, but Ketosis is not...

    Ketosis, which is what happens on a Low carb diet, is often confused with Ketoacidosis..
    But it is not the same thing.

    Steph -
    I really hate to be the lone voice of dissent here.
    Looking at your numbers, I hope you're aware how dangerous this is.
    Ketosis can be dangerous and potentially life threatening.
    At the very least, please consider how hard it will be when you go off this "diet" and back to a normal, healthy eating plan.
    I love you and want you to be healthy and succeed!

    Are you tracking your fiber? You know you can reduce your carb count by the number of fiber grams you eat per day... It's a lifesaver for me sometimes... My carb counts are usually in the 40's, but subtract out 15-25 grams of fiber, and I'm actually hovering around 25 grams of carb/day!
    9.5 lbs in 9 days!! (and balanced hormones, to boot!)
