Heya,

Thanks to all of you who have joined me on myfitnesspal.com. Those who have not and want to be a part of us , please join me here.

I wanted to get going with Atkins or LCHF today itself. But my kitchen needed some cleaning ! Aah , I don’t overdo carbs but nonetheless I had a lot of things in my kitchen that are not allowed in this lifestyle.

So I have shopped loads for this coming month. The target is NOT to eat wheat and rice and pasta and bread and whatever grains exist in the world for 30 days ! I know I can live without wheat but not sure how will I manage the rest. So, I have 2 ladies to my rescue – Ana and Kanan. Both have done LCHF and lost oodles of weight ! I am gonna bug them now and then until I figure my way out to live this lifestyle successfully πŸ˜‰

Let’s check what I bought ! This list will help you shop πŸ™‚

      • You can also add natural peanut butter and almond butter (my new favorite) and whey protein powder post strength exercises. Also if you get avacodoes (I didnt see it there I was last time though but I get quickly outdated given pace of India πŸ™‚

        • Gayatri, thanks for suggestions πŸ™‚ . I tried getting Avacodoes, cudnt get πŸ™ , will try again.
          Peanut butter and almond butter that I checked had huge amount of sugar in it. Still hunting for a low carb brand. I am already taking whey !

          • Yeah. we get now Natural Peanut or Almond butter here. Usual Jeff brand has much sugar in it.

            About SB, I am with you. I stayed on it and don’t see results second time around (more or so, I wasn’t a bad eater in between anyway) so I understand your point too and I need a strict diet along with my regular workout routine now in gym and also with full time job πŸ˜‰ liked that new post.

  1. Since you are including nuts which is not allowed in induction phase of atkins … and what I looked into Kanan blog .. what is followed is mix of both Atkins and South Beach diet. I have done south beach in past and its morr healthy one. Look into web for more information but, if you follow later, you can include chickpeas (hummus made from it), mungs , sprouted varieties etc… to assist with Indian prep. I am not yet decided which route to go with completely rightnow but have my diary open and will see what my body adjusts in a week timeframe to change or do some twicking. Anyway, look forward to your help and results as well on fitnesspal πŸ™‚

    • Gayatri, i have kept Almonds only for times when I am craving. I have done South Beach, have been on low carb since months now. But since my weight has stalled, i need to follow a strict diet. Ragi and Hummus …I am done with that phase , need a change. I am used to it !

      Listen to your body, you will know your way. I am hoping MFP brings good motivation for us πŸ™‚

  2. i would not go with low carb diet completely, would like to add elements of it.. Looking forward to what all can make & eat in this diet. i dont have much to lose but want to stay fit and healthy..

    • Anjalee, you need not go low carb if you are not looking for weight loss. I will come up with a post how much carbs should one eat as per one’s goals. sounds good ?

  3. Tarun, i was sick on-off last 2 months, viral fever, etc.. i have very low immunity right from childhood, want to improve immunity,., adding such foods to lifestyle long-term basis, rather than eat for few days and dump them..

    feels good to be back on forums and talk about stuff.. πŸ™‚
