  1. Nutrition Facts of Lean Corned Beef

    Nutrition Facts of Lean Corned Beef
    Despite the name, corned beef has nothing to do with corn. In Anglo-Saxon times, well before refrigeration, beef was preserved by rubbing it with “corns” of salt. Today, a brine solution replaces the corning process, but the original name has stuck. Salt, peppercorns, bay leaves and other spices give corned beef its distinctive flavor. Typically made ...
  2. Phase 3 / Day 7... for some reason I am hungry tonight.

    I am up 0.6# today (but still 0.4# below LIW) -- and I am super hungry tonight for some reason. I don't know what the deal is. I don't know if I ate something that is setting me off or what. My stomach is grumbling and I have a slight headache too. Blargh. I am looking back through my menu and see nothing out of the ordinary.

    • 2 Eggs

  3. Fathead

    I just saw a great documentry called Fathead. I recommend everyone se it. If you have streaming Netflix it is on there.
    This movie is all about why we are fat and it makes great sense. Basically it says breads aka carbs (most of our favorites) create sugar in our systems and then it is converted to fat. So get rid of the carbs - not veggies- and non natural oils - processed oils and you will be sitting pretty. So I recommend watching it and drawing your own conclusions.
    So no more ...
  4. Phase 3, Day 11-12

    Day 11 - Thursday, May 26, 2011 - weight unknown

    So today I didn't have a scale with me so I couldn't weigh in. Today we are going to the Atlanta aquarium and then we are driving back to good old Tennessee. I really want to stay in Atlanta with Will for a little bit longer but I guess all good things must come to an end. Yesterday I brewed some hotel coffee and put it in the fridge overnight so I could have my ice coffee as usual. We went to the CNN center for breakfast and I had ...

  5. High Protein Day So Far

    Today was my sisters graduation so I was up extra early (I am so far from a morning person its not even funy). I had my first meal at around 9:30, but because of the ceremony and falling asleep, I'm having to stuff the last 1000 calories of my day into 4 hours. Here is what I've eaten so far:

    9:30: 3 drumsticks (no skin)

    5:30: A piece of salmon

    9:00: Pork Chop

    10-10:30?: I will attempt to eat maybe 6 oz of Chuck Steak...I'm currently ...

    Well I am down to 163.4 today and 11% Body fat!!! I am soooo excited!!!

    I will finish off the rest of my injections (about 3 to 5 days) and start the transition to Phase 3. I had been on a 10 day stall and I tried someof the chocolate crack mixture folks had talked about with coconut oil and cocoa powder. YUM! AND it took me right out of my stall. I dropped over 3 pounds in two days now.

    WOO HOO!

  9. R2 vlcd33

    I planned on following low cal for 1-2 weeks to see if HCG helped with the losses but I only have 1 more mixed dose of hcg for tonight. Not sure I want to mix up another. I think I might take a break and let it get out of my system. I've had either HHCG or HCG in me since March and I hate, hate, hate taking meds everyday. Even though I don't really think of the HCG as a med I'm just tired of taking the twice a day dose everyday. Think it's time for a mind and body break.

    I'll still ...
  10. P3 d7 176.8

    I am feeling pretty good diet wise. Yesterday night I ate a Culver's Deluxe Double cheeseburger w/o the top bun some sweet potato fries a little bit of a lemon ice with raspberry topping WOW that was so sickeningly sweet! I had 4 eggs for breakfast with pepper jack cheese for breakfast and for lunch I made a caprisie salad and had Italian sausage with it. I loved it the kids...not so much. I also had a diet soda at Culver's that was my first in 2 months. Mind you I was drinking 3-5 route 44 diet ...
