    Update on my progress...since I started this WOE in March, I've lost 25 pounds. I'm sure I would have lost more, but I cheat more than I should. This does work, and I feel healthier when I eat this way. I sure notice the "bloated" feeling when I eat a bad meal with carbs and protiens! I'm walking a lot more, (now that I no longer have to wade through 3 feet of snow!) and I have more energy. I still have a long way to go. I would really like to try rollerblading (there's a kodak moment!) but I'm afraid I would end up in traction or kill myself.
    I'll keep popping in here to chat with you all. Stick with it!

    Hey Yooper! Congrats on the weight loss! I just started this diet as well and I was wondering if you had any great recipes you could share to keep me motivated. Could you share with me what a typical day (meal wise) would be for you on this diet? Thanks for any help you can give me. icon_biggrin.gif

    Hey Cher! Welcome to the wonderful world of Somersizing! If anyone had told me 20 years ago that the dumb blonde from "Three's Company" would become a world renowned diet guru I would have told them to give me what they were smoking!
    Typical day's menu for me:
    Breakfast: piece of fruit or a fruit smoothie. Then I wait an hour and have a couple of eggs (any style) with bacon or ham...sometimes throw in cheese with vegtables.
    Lunch is usually a salad of some type with chicken or tuna.
    Dinner is either beef, chicken, pork, or fish with a salad and a side of vegetables. For snacks I like to keep hard boiled eggs on hand or a piece of cheese with some fresh celery.
    I try to limit my carbs to 3 or four times a week, and then I only eat them for breakfast. I usually have a bowl of Grape Nuts or shredded Wheat with skim milk. Sometimes I'll toast a slice of whole Pumpernickle bread and spray that "I can't believe it's not butter" stuff on it, which is fat free. I've even been known to have whole wheat pasta with steamed veggies and the butter spray for breakfast splashed with some hot sauce! Here's a few of my recipes and some from others I have enjoyed:
    Creamy Cauliflower and Artichoke Salad with Parmesan Cheese recipe #63533
    Baked Peppers with Ricotta and Basil recipe #60209
    Creamy Chili Dressing (being from Texas you will probably love this as it packs some heat!) recipe #59285
    Quincy Jones Thriller Ribs (no sugary barbecue sause here) recipe #54900
    Mexi Cheeseburger Quiche recipe #57624
    Homemade Ranch Dressing from Mirj recipe #60078
    Creamy Cheesy Mushroomy Leeky Red Peppery Casserole from Mirj recipe #56847
    Parmesan Roasted Asparagus recipe #56558
    Spinach Mushroom and Artichoke Casserole from Chia recipe #47986

    Good luck with the diet, and let me know how you're doing!

    Thanks Cher! I almost forgot about that one...I usually have mine with mashed potatoes to sop up the wonderful sauce! Oh well...have to resort to my favorite "mock' mashed potatoes...steamed frozen chopped cauliflower mashed with cream, butter and salt and pepper. Not too bad!

    Debbie,

    I've just emailed you. I've been SS-ing for 5 months and have dropped almost 25 pounds, although I fell off the wagon for the last two weeks and was held captive by the Sugar Monster. As of yesterday I'm back on, and it's amazing how much better you feel when you are SS-ing!

    I actually thought of making a list of legal recipes here at Zaar. I'm going to start a post and start listing them. Please send me any Zaar recipes that you come across! This way we'll have all the legal recipes at our fingertips!

    Bumping for this great food plan, and I hope others will find it's the answer for them as it's been for me. I "played" with this food plan for several months, then finally started it in seriousness two weeks ago. I'm not hungry, I feel better and have more energy, and when I got on the scales this a.m. I was shocked to discover that I'm down five pounds! Now, if there were only a Curves in my area I'd be in heaven. icon_smile.gif

    Hi, everyone!

    Apologies in advance for my lengthy, rambling post!

    I'm somewhat curious about this, but don't know if I can eliminate Nutella, coffee, and the ever-so-evil sourdough bread. I've cut back considerably in the bread/pasta/refined starch department (I've dropped about twelve pounds in three months just by doing so), but have to have my Nutella hot chocolate almost every night and love my morning cup of coffee. Other than those two things, I honestly think I'm close to following this plan on my own anyway; I just need to work on the right food combinations.

    Anyway, my question regards tofu. I'm an ovo-lacto vegetarian, and use it at least three times a week. I understand from what I've read in here that vegetarians are allowed tofu on the plan. Should I consider it a protein or a carb? Beans are carbs, and it's bean-derived, but I've always thought of it as a protein.....I'm a little confused! icon_lol.gif

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi Kitten! I think Suzanne says that tofu is to be considered a protein.

    Now you have me dreaming about Nutella hot cocoa! I usually stick to the plan all week long but have a 24 hour cheat on the weekends. Knowing that I will be able to eat anything illegal at the end of the week helps me keep to the plan the other 6 days. A planned cheat now and again is not really going to throw you off track, just slow you down a bit.

    I have always said that while my body is on a diet, my soul isn't. Nutella is necessary to life!

    Thanks for clearing up my confusion, Mirj, I was 75% sure that was going to be the case. I wanted to make sure prior to my supermarket run, though. icon_smile.gif

    In an attempt to appease my conscience, I always make my Nutella hot chocolate with skim milk. But if it means I'll break this plateau, I'm all for limiting myself to it once a week. (I think....icon_lol.gif) I hadn't considered a "planned cheat" before, but that's a great idea. In fact, it seems even more an indulgence than sneaking the occasional illegal treat! Twenty four hours of pure hedonism! ha ha ha

    I agree with you entirely on the body versus soul matter, and that Nutella is absolutely vital.

    Thanks again for the advice! icon_biggrin.gif
