No matter how often I stray, the O diet suggestions are here for me to adhere to and feel marvelous.

I have been on low carb diets for several decades, and to do so is always easy to come back to when I strayed and gained weight.  I love the meat I can eat and I love the freedom low carb gives me when I need to buckle down and fly right.  

Low carb is under 30 carbs but not the issue here.  Being diabetic I am more likely to be thriving with lower carbs then not.  When I make meat my first food, and all else as a second choice, then life is fine.  I can have a sliver of that cake, or a sliver of fruit, or a sliver of cheese and still be close to Beneficial perfect.  

Yesterday I was a t a brunch that lasted all day.  Food calorie and treats endless. Yet I had decided to eat low carb, under 60 and it worked just fine.  I ate meat and more of it and then some.  The slivers of all the other foods did not add up to 60 carbs, even with carvel icecreamcake.  A sliver is ok, when I am like I am, wanting just a taste.  

Today I started my day with drinking and then I took a tbl spoon or less of extra light olive oil (Shangri-la Oil suggestions- in place of breakfast.  I was not hungry until 12.noon.  Now I ate a steak and all is as it should be leaving many a carb for the rest of the day.  

It was steamed asparagus, 2 eggs and and a small piece of chocolate.  in on hour a spoon of oil and I'm good.

This works and is easy to follow.  Makes all food choices simple. Creates much peace.
  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Where can I find the information on olive oil in the morning?

Does it taste gross? It grosses me out thinking of downing olive oil straight.


Husband = O which = easier meal planning!!!

no .. extra light olive oil is realtively tasteless.. refg. cold is better but the idea is not to breath so it has NO taste..

it's part of shangri la diet.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Yes... I do all sort of things to keep me happy.  I learned about the Shangri-la diet suggestion of taking in Oil in place of a snack.  It turned out to be the best way for me to have effortless bathroom visits after 2 month of doing it.  The effort of the spoon of oil is better than all other things I took before, including magnesium.  I found the surprise so enormous after years of hard times.

Shangri-la does not require any food or diet changes and so the extra light olive- tasteless- Oil advice was a great gift for me for 3 reasons... No hunger for snacks, great satisfaction and not needing to look for food all day, and then the bathroom situation is a pleasure and so simple and healthy to boot.  But taking the oil needs to be a daily thing to be a regular thing.

As for my effort to drop weight, it is so difficult when I am out of the house. But still I am making progress even when I only stay the same in between.  

In Shangri-la there is another trick that works when out, in place of snacks, (if oil is not available or not desired by some, drink a sugary water drink, plain and tasteless, no lemons added.... It finally explained why so many like a cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon.

Gee, and we all thought our 4:00 sip was actually delivering some caffeine.

Yes on caffeine San J,  yet 4pm decaf will do the same. but to be less hungry for dinner 2 hours later, plain sugar water or oil helps way more.  The midmorning slump is greatly improved by not needing to 'worry' about foods when I take the oil. The peace effects stay with me for about three hours allowing me not to feel ravished or deprived.

Yes to the chocolate as a snack later in the evening, very small piece of 90% chocolate.
-If it was regular sweet choc I would eat the whole big bar.  Better I have non in the house.

I use lime and Trehalose complex as my drink of the day.

A few small baggies with frozen 1 tablespoon of blueberries go a long way to satisfy.
I did well eating a few, feeling luxurious. They keep longer frozen too.

Yesterday: Oil twice a day and wonderful thin steaks lunch and dinner. The starch was a banana...
I was invited to ice-cream out but was able to say No thanks... great.


Today: 9am Oil, a hotdog instead of junk while pumping gas mid morning / always dangerous.
Steaks for lunch and dinner, with 3 scouted onions & Cajun spice... love it.  
I was able to resist snacks at sister’s house-because I was satisfied...

All is well and I am staying true to what I wish to accomplish.  
Peace in the brain and under 60 carbs all included. I feel great when doing that.

I'm not understanding. How will decaffeinated coffee deliver the caffeine of a cup of regular coffee?

I haven't read your link, deblynn3, but I've seen this from the Mayo Clinic:

Caffeine content of 8oz generic brewed coffee: 95-200mg
Caffeine content of 8oz generic brewed decaf coffee: 2-12mg.

This squares with Starbucks' figures for a 16 oz coffee (Pikes Place):
330mg for regular; 25 mg for decaf.

These realities do not "explain" for me why, at 4:00pm, around the world, millions might equally enjoy sugar water over black tea or coffee.

My guess might be a quick energy fix. Even if by different triggers.  I remember "4:00pm"  tea when I lived in Germany.  Always had cake with it.
