Happy International Bacon Day!

20140830-095841-35921373.jpg
The last week I’ve allowed myself to eat pretty much anything I felt like. No rules just ‘enjoying’ various foods.

I use the word ‘enjoying’ lightly as most of the time the post carb eating experience left me feeling bloated, lethargic and generally yuck.

One week on and I’ve gained just over 2kgs now weighing in at 105.4kg.

From today onwards I’m back into the LCHF swing and will post another weigh-in in one week to show the effects of good food choices vs bad.

What better day to recommit to eating well and looking after ourselves than on International Bacon Day 🙂

This morning it’s scrambled eggs with butter and smokey bacon.

Check back in one week to see how effective this lifestyle really is (accountability is king) and in the mean time… ENJOY some Bacon 😉

Where did you go FatManDoo?

Thank you to everyone for your encouraging messages over the last month. It has been a while since my last post and lots of things have been changing in my world. LCHF however is still going strong! I have started adding in the occasional baked spud or a lil white rice here and there as I am approaching a maintenance diet now. I’m still losing small amounts however my focus now is mostly health and fitness.

I found something cool this morning when I popped down to my local supermarket. Tomato and BBQ sauces made with Stevia. Low Carb, Gluten Free and great tasting! My bacon, egg and sausage has never tasted so good 🙂

Hopefully in the coming weeks I will find some time to try out some new recipe ideas I have floating around my head. Until then, stay the course! This lifestyle really does work.

SIX MONTHS LCHF

Today marks six months of living LCHF. Over all it’s been remarkably easy and simple to stick to. Even on the days where I mess up and slip it’s just a matter of making the right choices at the next meal, not beating myself up.

As of today’s weigh in I am 103.8kg. Pretty stoked with that! Just bought myself a pair of size 36″ jeans and a t-shirt from a ‘cool’ store. Pretty stoked with that too!

It’s in my blood now, it’s a way of life not a diet. There will be days when I choose other foods but on the whole carbs can expect limited access to
My mouth from now til kingdom come 🙂

Saturday Snags

Had a day off work today and my first opportunity in a long while for a sleep in. I actually slept most of the day away and when I woke in the early afternoon I was craving Spaghetti Bolognese and Garlic Bread! Noooooo.

I knew I had to get some quality fat and protein into me before I made a decision I might regret.

After perusing the meat section at my local supermarket for a while I stumbled upon these little beauties.

Angus Beef & Pork Sausages. Only 1.5gm of carb per 70gm snag 🙂

And they tasted brilliant! I cooked them slowly in olive oil with some cherry tomatoes and once they were ready I fried 2 eggs in the yummy sausage fat and oils. I’ll definitely be having these again and recommend them to anyone in Australia eating LCHF.

Eat a Week with Fatmandoo

In the light of my recent before/after photo post I was asked by a number of people to share what an average weeks menu looks like for me. Well, here it is… Fatmandoo Sample Menu.pdf I have uploaded it as an easy to print PDF file so you can keep it on hand to help you with meal ideas for the week.

Remember it’s only a guide and if you’re feeling full from breakfast please don’t feel like you have to force down lunch 🙂
