    This forum is for sharing recipes for the low carb Atkins Diet that is favored by many Doctors and is great for diabetics too! If you have any low carb advice or tips they are appreciated. Feel free to post your low carb recipes here but be sure to write down the amount of carbs each serving has so people will know. Thanks, let go low carb together! With this diet you will loose weight remarkably fast while enjoying rich foods like meats, seafoods, cheeses, even fats like butter, eggs, blue cheese and ranch dressings for salads. After about a week you won't feel hungry and cravings for carbs will leave! icon_biggrin.gif

    Actually, this forum is NOT for the Atkins Diet, per se, but for discussion of lower carb lifestyles and cooking. So while I appreciate your posting recipes in this thread, please instead add them to the whole database for the food.com site and share them more widely. Links to other sites should be minimal if they are other recipe collection sites, as per the terms of service of THIS site.

    Ditto to what host Karyl Lee said.

    I was diagnosed with diabetes early in 2008 (but never had a proper test, and have strange finger prick readings!). So, okay, maybe it's not really serious diabetes, but still I find that wheat is the main thing which makes my glucose levels go up too high. So, no bread, pasta, cake, etc.

    I try to eat low carb as much as I can.

    It's not much use trying to keep to a strict diet, as no diet (ask the dieters!!) really works.

    It's a lifestyle change. I eat more than enough, but I keep to a high-protein, lots-of-veggies-and-salad diet. I drink quite a lot of dry wine every night with dinner. (I am NOT saying anyone else should so that -- I simply grew up with wine and I can not enjoy a dinner without a decent wine!)

    I have 2 eggs and bacon most mornings. Sometimes I have half a slice of bread with that, with tomato or ketchup. I buy a "crackerbread" and use that instead of ordinary bread (6 g carb per slice). Cheese I eat, lots of. I do not cut out normal fats and oils, otherwise I'd get too hungry. There are other foods i eat, too many to mention.

    My weight has been stable since 2008 -- I would not like to lose any weight as being too thin does not become an older woman!! icon_wink.gif rotfl.gif

    The best dishes (think fine dining as we sometimes see on TV) are diabetes and low-carb safe!!

    On this site I do check the carb count of recipes I like (unfortunately many nutrition tables are simply wrong!) My DH eats more or less what he likes but also has to watch his glucose levels. I cook one decent dinner every night -- meat/poultry/fish, fresh vegetables, and we always have a salad.

    What struck me about the posts above is that all were concerned with desserts!!!! If you want to go low-carb you do not need nutrition tables -- and lose the sweet tooth!! It's been proved that even the no-calorie soda drinks affect your weight.

    Thanks for sharing, Zurie. What do you find as an acceptable carb count in a recipe?

    Claudia Dawn, that's hard to say. It all depends what ELSE I am going to have at a meal.

    By now I know that all proteins are practically carb-free.

    The problem is, every person reacts differently to different carbs. I still eat potatoes in every shape, but not too much.

    I suppose in an entire dinner there shouldn't be more than about 50 g carbs -- but being exact is very hard.

    I'm no snacker, and I do not have a sweet tooth and neither does my husband (except he likes chocolates and certain sweets!) so I never make desserts and cakes any more. Using substitutes in a cake or dessert recipe affect the end result too much, but a slice of "normal" cake can easily be 100 g carbs!

    Having fats with carbs helps to stop one's body turning the carbs into glucose too soon, so I'd fry eggs in butter or olive oil, and I do use a little butter over steamed veggies, and olive oil in our salad dressing.

    I'm just looking for low cal/low carb recipes so I can get my boyfriend to let go of the cigarettes again. *sigh*

    he's a little vain when it comes to his appearance... its kinda funny... until all these people apparently told him he looked terrible. He's maybe 20lbs over his goal. We're hopefully going to get into the habit of calorie counting and such...

    and then hopefully we'll be in the know then and take the ciggs away. We've been trying to get healthy, but he's one of those types who gets mad if they don't see results right away.

    It took me three months to lose 4 pounds and I've barely lost anything around my midsection/thighs. So I still don't feel any sexier... but I keep trucking on! He however whines.

    I try to load his lunch for work with carrots and watermelon and all sorts of grown things, but I'm STUCK on work lunches he could consider yummy, and still be healthy/filling.

    Anyone have ANY lunch suggestions? Nothing super duper fancy, he's a trucker and a bit picky (Almost as bad as his boys!) but I am willing to try anything to help him drop weight. Just not ciggs. But he went on and did that anyway.

    We're going to have some chicken cooked up and he's going to shred it up for a salad. I have to find a bowl I can use that will keep dressing separate from the salad. BUT I need a main dish kinda thing, to replace the sandwiches he usually gets, and is now sick of. I was thinking adding hummus to it for dip or maybe to spread on a tortilla, but I don't know if he likes hummus, let alone what to put on a tortilla that would fill him up.

    Please help. It would be appreciated! And if you know a nutritionist/trainer kinda person who is willing to be paid in toddler kisses, raisins and chaos, let me know! We need one!

    I'm so sorry it took me eons to see your request.
    How about a small head of lettuce as the bowl? a little iceberg lettuce with most of the middle leaves removed but stem shortened and intact could be a bowl for a salad. Then you could maybe have a variant on Cobb salad with egg, tomato, onion, chopped walnuts (minimal), turkey and grated cheese. For dressing he could use a packet of oil and vinegar type.
    For a main dish, I like a kielbasa stir fry with onions and peppers, light on the onions. Snow peas could be a good addition, as could cabbage. Most of the time I'd eat this hot or cold, maybe he will too.

    Thats okay! It took me forever to get to the reply anyway haha icon_smile.gif

    Thanks for the suggestions. Now that they have completely messed up our schedule by putting him on a later shift, I'm sending mostly fruits/veggies for him to eat. He starts at noon now, and I'm hoping to deliver him his dinner at nights. He doesn't feel so hungry during the hottest parts of the day while he's working right now, so I have to make sure he gets lots of water, cool fruit, and I'm going to be sending along some slim shakes to keep him hydrated as well as providing the calories he needs to work and not feel exhausted. Poor guy icon_sad.gif

    Arianna, I keep to a low-carb diet due to blood sugar concerns, and I have kept my weight constant for 5 yrs.

    I hate to feel hungry. So, maybe sometimes I do. But there are so many great high-protein meals you can have which is low-carb, that it's no real problem.

    First of all: keep in mind that fruits have a high sugar content. So keep him to an apple, maybe. Not bananas, not too many fruits, no fruit juices.

    Being on the road is a problem. I agree with Karyl Lee that using iceberg lettuce cups (use double or triple layers of leaves) might work, and fill it with high-protein stuff like seasoned hardboiled eggs and cut-up chicken with mayo, or seafood with mayo.

    Secondly: it is not possible, especially for a man, to eat low-fat AND low-carb. It's either the one, or the other ...

    Do NOT worry about the fats -- if you research the fat question you will find that there are many misconceptions about fats. So let him eat roast chicken with the skin and bone on, give him lamb chops or beef roast or whatever you like, without worrying about the fat content.

    DO worry about things like soda. No Zero Coke, no fizzy drinks. Rather just plain water on the road, or if eating in a café, tea or coffee. Much better.

    Once home, cook lots of fresh veggies and season with real butter and whatever else you like as seasonings.

    Think of cheese -- as part of the road food he takes with him.

    Things to avoid are "the white stuff" -- white bread, cookies, cake, doughnuts, etc. -- anything made with flour.

    In the shops you will find low-carb, crispy cracker-type "breads" -- we have one which has only 6 g carbs per slice, and that is -- most of the time -- my bread! Unfortunately it's not good "road food" because it will soften if kept too long with toppings on it.

    Thanks for all the advice! I figure that if I do manage to make him something high protien that's still healthy, he will eat it and be better about the constant snacking. THAT seems to be the big issue. He constantly feels hungry. I think I'm going to give up the low fat though, because anything that is listed as 'low fat' seems to be sky high in sodium. If I could get him on a regular schedule, i think we'll be in business icon_smile.gif We're cutting back on the breads, mostly. I know he already drinks lots of water, and he even surprised me by stopping and getting himself some tea. Thank you though!
