those ginger ideas are great will try them all even the fish .. I don't like fish..

as for swimming I could .. and do in summer .. I just wish I had more company but I also know I am just lazy allowing myself all sorts of excuses..

and green tee, I dislike the taste.. tried many.. but LOVE ALL YOUR COMPANY here at about 4 in the afternoon?? is that OK?? ha-ha or better yet a cup of cocoa in the AM.. it is interesting how calming that is for me.. I wish I had ever been told years ago.... to try it.. but now I know so things are ok..  have a nice day..

Since you are doing BTD and you aren't into "fishy" tasting, I would recommend the cod! It is the one fish my O wife really likes. I defrost the fillets overnight and then cook it with fresh basil for us. Other than making sure the fillets are fully defrosted it is really easy to prepare!

Right now my cooking method is sear the fish on both sides for a minute (in nonstick or use ghee); add lime juice, olive oil, and fresh basil; cover and turn down the heat and let sit for 15 minutes or so. If I am not ravenously hungry I can get two meals out of one fillet for me.

Up your greens too.  That takes away a lot of cravings and makes one feel very satisfied tummy wise. IMHO anyhow.

Sounds good.  

One of the problems I have with fish is that all my life, the only fish I ate was breaded and deep fried.  That's not something I'm going to do now, but I miss the crusty approach to fish.  My body doesn't digest grains and concentrated proteins very well if I eat them at the same time, so I'm not going to be dusting fillets with any flour.  But I have my own solution, which I mentioned to KK on the grain-free thread.

I keep a jar of onion granules and garlic granules, mixed half and half.  I dust fish with this mixture and a sprinkle of Himalayan salt before I saute on each side.  It gives a hint of a crust, since the granules are the texture of fine cornmeal.  Quite satisfying!

I didn't read all the thread, but maybe the test was faulty. Can you get a retest?
Sometimes things get worse before they get better(maybe like a plateau)....maybe your body is going thru a transition!

I'm glad you like the idea Goldie! I've been experimenting to get this far. I tried cooking only with olive oil and the fish stuck to the stainless steel - starting with ghee works much better!

Oh and one more tip on the basil, if you can't get fresh organic basil, Litehouse freeze-dried basil is quite tasty too. The jar I have is a product of Germany and only has basil. However, I am not using it until I have used up my fresh! Normal dried basil has a different flavor and is a lot stronger - overpowers the other flavors in the dish for me.

Victoria, I also liked breaded white fish pre-BTD. I'll have to try the onion/garlic/sea salt approach with fish, maybe with pike or halibut. (Don't let me fool you, I've only figured out cod so far!)

I tried this first with onion/garlic powder and it didn't work well.  The granules are a different texture.  I buy it in bulk at natural food stores.

I need to order some more deflect, but I wanted to share that another good crust for fish is finely chopped pecans or other nuts.  You can add some seasoning to the nuts, like sea salt and herbs.  Then saute in some ghee/oil and voila!  I have not done this many times, but when I do, it's wolfed down by all!  Can't remember if I used egg to help the nuts stick or not, but perhaps that was part of it also.  I just searched for a recipe on the web and found several with nut crusts.

this way of cooking might also work for differences when eating other foods.. like adding some new spices to leavy greens.

So my Cpeptide test shows high..-- interpretation== I ought to be good for a much longer time not needing insulin by injection.. breath.. at least for now I am reasonable ok if I pay attention to my carb intake..   

Imagine if I ate the standard American diabetes diet of 2 slices of toast in the AM lunch and dinner?? "they' suggest I poison my self ..

I am soooooo glad I did Atkins for 20 years.. eating much fewer fruits, and then BTD and having reversed my eating from 95% damaging foods to 95% Super and Beneficial foods for many years already.. I started to follow my instinctual preferences in my eating YEARS ago and doing so I am lucky today that I am as good as I am..

young people will be so much better of if only they will learn early...
