Thread: Struggling with food aversion

  1. #1

    Struggling with food aversion

    Iím on VLCD day 24 and have been struggling with a new aversion to chicken. Fish is iffy for me, Iíve had it a few times, and shrimp consistently causes me a gain. So beef is the only thing Iím ok with, but I know I shouldnít be eating that 2x daily, right? I still have about 2 weeks left so looking for some ideas- I remember reading about egg, something like 3 egg whites and 1 whole egg? I really only like eggs scrambled. Wondering if anyone has tried the egg thing and if it works just the same, or if there are any other alternatives to chicken. Iíve tried lots of different recipes, Iíve prepared chicken so many ways. Some better than others, and the only way I can tolerate chicken right now is in the form of cinnamon chicken soup which is an HCG recipe from my book. Iíve made all sorts of HCG friendly sauces, dips, dressings, etc anything to get this chicken down but itís getting to the point that I shudder after every bite. A few times I grilled the hell out of it with a blackened seasoning recipe I found on this website and that helped because I couldnít even tell it was chicken anymore. Help!

    You could try making a "creamy" chicken soup where the chicken is completely pureed. That sometimes can help you get past the aversion.

    You are correct that you can on occasion use 3 eggwhites plus one whole egg as your protein. Vegetarians have successfully used the Jay Robb whey protein and egg white protein shakes as a protein choice, so that might be an option for you, even thougn it is not technically on protocol. Dr. Simeons also allowed non-fat cottage cheese curds for some with religious restrictions. He did say that they could expect to only lose about half as much during their course because of that, so it would be a matter of your being willing to accept lower losses.

    Something else you might consider is getting some of your protein from bone broth. You can buy chicken or beef bone broth that is fat-free, or make your own.

    I have one meal of egg and one of fat-free yogurt per week. No change in losses.
    Crab is also allowed. More expensive but very good.

    This may not be enough for you though but it can be something.

    Do you have a Vitamix or someth8ng comparable? If so, blend the chicken into a soup with broth and whatever veggie (cook veggie first in broth) and seasonings. I developed a chicken aversion years ago and I came up with this. Even though I don’t have an aversion to chicken anymore I still eat these meals in P2 because I love them so much. The chicken makes a thick, creamy and hearty soup. So comforting. One of my favorites is to make a “creamy” asparagus soup. I grill my chicken on the grill to give it extra flavor. I like salt, pepper, smoked paprika and cayenne in my soup. I usually also put 3 or 4 drops of stevia in it as well, then blend til silky smooth. Must have Vitamix or comparable blender though. Won’t work with regular blender. Texture will be off :-(

    I do have a good ninja blender/food processor that I think would certainly blend it up well. I've seen the "creamy" recipes in my book, the thought of blended chicken really grosses me out, but maybe I'll give it a try because I am desperate enough. Considering doing the egg thing over the weekend maybe once to see if that works, mix some spinach in it too. Thanks for everyone's feedback.

    I've been doing 1% fat cottage cheese for my lunches the last few days. I know cottage cheese is supposed to be one of the "once in a while " things. But i've still consistently lost a pound a day while eating it.
