Hi all, I started a low carb diet in Feb after a year of calorie counting with no weight loss. So far on the low carb diet the doctor gave me i was finally able to start the scale moving in the right direction!Down 27lbs so far trying for 50 more. I am always looking for new ideas.

I was so excited to see this board! I've been eating LC since Jan. I've ate LC off and on in the past years but I've always fallen off the wagon because I always looked at it as a diet, but now I have made this a lifestyle change!

I lost 25 lbs. since Jan. The summer has proved to be much harder for me to stay on track than I ever expected. I gained about 5 lbs back over this summer.However, it's Monday, and I am back on track today for a fresh start! I meal prepped all day yesterday so I am prepared for my 1st week!

I am cruising on the Magic 9/24 out of Port Canaveral. Anyone else on that cruise?? I really think LC on the cruise will be easier... all the bacon, meat and veggies you could want! My last cruise, I loved the cheese plate for dessert!

My goal is to loose 20 lbs. by my cruise!!
Any extra tips welcomed and/or meal planning idea welcomed!

As I posted in another thread I was having really good results with a low-carb program called Ideal Protein (IP) that was managed by the chiropractic office my daughter-in-law worked at. She had lost 70 lbs on it and our son 50 lbs. I lost 40 lbs in a few months and was averaging 10 lbs a month until it was interrupted by a job change and cross country move. Just contacted a local chiropractor's office and will be re-starting on phase one. High lean protein and lots of low-glycemic vegies.

Program requires food logs and weekly weigh-in and BMI measurement for accountability.

One of my favorites is a pouch of IP high protein (18g) chocolate milkshake powder, a cup of sliced zucchini, one cup of spinach leaves, two cups water and some ice in a blender. Sometimes a table spoon of sugar free Torani caramel syrup. Blended well. Very filling and full of good nutrients.

Hey Y'all!

I'm keto, so I stay less than 40 carbs a day max (usually 10-20). I've lost 24 pounds in the last month and a half. I don't know what to do about my cruise... I want to eat all of the foods that I love and hardly ever get. I think I'll just enjoy myself, and catch up when I get back. I definitely want to jump back on my diet asap when I get back though!

Key thing on the cruise is if you are going to eat carbs make sure they are worth it. I find it harder to do that towards the end of the cruise though. Commit to getting right back to low carb/keto as soon as the cruise is over.

About a year ago I lost 65 pounds - 245 down to 180, in about 3 months and my bloodwork numbers stayed great. I did essentially a low carb high fat diet. If the package said lo fat, reduced fat, or no fat I stayed away. I didn't count any calories or do any special exercises. The best website I've found is http://www.dietdoctor.com/
The free trial month was all I needed to get the info I wanted but I stayed a couple months as paid just because I appreciated the site so much.

I am also a Diet Doctor (website and FB) fan -

LCHF is my WOE and I have lost 48 POF (pounds of fat) since after Christmas last year

I love this WOE and it is not a diet rather my lifestyle

I also follow Dr. Jason Fung "The Obesity Code" and I do IF (intermittent fasting) my window of fasting is usually 20:4 - which means I fast for 20 hours and only 'feed" (eat) during the 4 hour period - usually 6 pm at night to 3-4 pm the next day -

I also fast at least 1 - 48 hour period per week and occasionally 1 5 day fast per month - I am insulin resistant and this helps to get my insulin down to a manageable level!

I love the fact that everything you need for this WOE is onboard the ships -
eggs - meat- fish - poultry - pork - cheeses - whipping cream - above the ground veggies and lots of salads!

I've been doing keto since July 4th. I lost 24 lbs in the first 2 months, and have held steady since then due to too many cheat days/weekends. Now that I've booked a cruise for next August, I'm ready to drop my 2nd 24lbs. It is super hard not to have fruit. But once I get in the groove after a week or so, I don't have the cravings. My biggest tip is to get sodium and potassium tablets and take those when eating keto. It's a diuretic diet and you lose your electrolytes when you're peeing that much which causes headaches and carb cravings and dizziness etc.

I think on my vacations (Disney in January, cruise in August) I will pick the low carb options when available, but I'm going to have dessert or mashed potatoes if I want. From my experience in the past few months, I feel really good on keto. When I cheat, I'm tired, get headaches, am cranky etc. I don't want to feel like that all vacation, so I'm trying to find a balance.

Good luck to you - I really don't have 'cheat' days - unless you want to count going over 10 carbs lol I enjoy a LCHF WOE and even for this weekend (2 HUGE birthday parties here at our house for adult kids - I made 4 layer dessert with chocolate - whipping cream - sugar (of course) flour - butter - nuts - didn't even lick my fingers or the knife when cutting it -

I do the Nike bit - "JUST DO IT" and don't 'cheat'!

While cruising - I will ask for cooked veggies on the side of my main meal or only eat the meat - I can always order - shrimp cocktail or scallops done in butter - caesar salad - salmon - chicken or steak - I have no need to change the way I eat - but then again we do cruise quite a bit so this is not a 'splurge' for me!

We leave tomorrow for London 3 days - southern England days - Barcelona 3 days and then TA on Harmony from Barcelona to Ft. Lauderdale 14 days -

The only time I may 'have to cheat' is when our hostess of 5 days serves something I really don't want to eat but IF it is served I must eat it or be a bad guests lol

I am also Keto, I keep my net carbohydrates to 30g per day maximum, and have lost 30 lbs since I started March 28th!

Best of all, I am no longer on medications for my type II diabetes, and my medical team is happy with me.

For my cruise, I am going to request no starches, just extra veggies with my main, and have a bite or two of dessert if I want.

I do get major GI issues if I eat too many carbs.

For sweets, I eat small amounts of 85% or darker chocolate, make mug cakes with almond and coconut flour, and fat bomb jello.

Sounds like everyone is finding out what WOE works best for your own body -

Phew - Finally home from 26 days - pre-cruise in London - S. England - Barcelona and 13 Days TA on Harmony -

Managed to stay low carb - nothing white - no sweets - chose meat - cheeses - eggs - Zero Sprite with Vodka - 1 glass red wine - So proud of me - only gain 5 POF during entire 26 days and know that my feet and ankles are still swollen so much of that will drop as water weight!

Besides the usual laundry - and unpacking - I now have 12 CC Roll Calls to read and catch up on for today - oh yes - let's not forget all the TV shows that were Tivo'd to watch -

I love cruising and vacation - but coming home is a blessing and curse -

Thank you God for the traveling mercies - protecting our home and family while we were gone!

We are also fans of Dr Jason Fung - his book is so informative (The Obesity Code), and we use intermittent fasting as well as keto. Another good book is Keto Clarity by Jimmy Moore. Both will give you many links to related websites and cook books. Dietdoctor.com is great and also provides many recipes and carb guidelines.Plenty of good fat in your diet is key, and stevia works for us too.

We started fasting/ keto diet the last week of February. My hubby was getting dangerously high blood sugar levels and the dr. wanted him on more pills...but DH wants fewer pills..so we researched on our own and found this. Well, by his next blood test 6 weeks later, the dr says "what did you do?" Seems that everything 'bad' dropped quite a bit! In the meantime, the dr had already set him up with an endocrinologist to go over his insulin levels. So he went, even though things were improving. The specialist told him "there is nothing I could have given you that would have worked as well or as quickly as what you did-so keep doing it! " And no future appts required for the specialist.

The great side effect was weight loss! I take no Rxs, but like many women of 'a certain age', the waistline had gradually gotten larger, and 'dieting' did not help at all. It was frustrating.
So we started keto and fasting and stuck to it, quite strictly low carb. We had no bread, desserts, pasta, etc for months. The first slice of pie I had was in Sept. when I visited Mom..baker extrordinaire.. I have lost 40 lbs. and reached my goal weight. We still keep carbs between strict and moderate levels, and fast. This Dec will be my first cruise since all of this began, so I know I can enjoy myself and still fast when I get home!
The funny thing is though, you don't want sweet stuff after you do this. When you eat something like a chocolate or candy bar, you cannot believe how sickenly sweet it tastes after you've reset your blood sugar levels, and you don't want it anymore.

Pam - CONGRATULATIONS to you both! I also went with Diet Doctor .com mid Feb and read Obesity Code in March - did the 16 days in Hawaii and on Celebrity Solstice - home May and went full blown IM - LOVE LOVE LOVE this WOE!
I still have another 55 POF to lose - but last Dec I gave myself the goal of 1 POF per week to get it all off I knew would take time - probably 18-24 months- I have been overweight since age 8 - now almost 66 and proud to say I have already made my goal for this year!

Hi Audrilee! We're very happy to have found this method, too. Just finished baking a batch of cheesy skillet bread, Ray's favourite of the 'bread' recipes so far!
Are you able to get 18% or heavy cream anywhere on your cruises? I like that for coffee and it's not always easy to find!

I will need to look that recipe up - I also make the 'cheese crackers' - (Fried cheese) to use as chips! I usually skip the cream BUT was able to get full whipping cream as my dessert every night in a little dish - it was whipped to the consistency of 'just about butter' and was so creamy and delicious! Everyone else ate dessert every night and I had my whipped cream! You might try that when in the MDR for your coffee?

Making 'wilted lettuce' salad with peppered bacon for dinner tonight!

We use half & half for dairy in coffee, it has slightly more carbs than heavy whipping cream, but I have adjusted my macros to use it.

Thank you guys.

This is the skillet bread recipe link-it's a great recipe site!
http://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/?s=...+skillet+bread

I adapted the recipe a bit-reduced the almond milk to 1/2 c. and also split the batter into 2 portions, baking them in 2 foil pie pans. Makes 12 very filling slices.
I found the original recipe too moist and thick. So this works to give a more bread-like texture, plus when you warm it up again in the oven it gets drier and even more like bread. It's great as a stuffing too, or to soak up 'gravy'.
I've also made it with mild white cheese like havarti instead of cheddar when I want something that goes with foods other than savoury.

Yahoo! Dropped the 5 pounds of water weight gained on the trip PLUS 3 more POF (pounds of fat) all this within the first week home from 26 days vacation and cruising!

See you can still stay with you WOE (way of eating) and lose weight while on vacation! (Or at least not gain)
