Low Carbing But Not Starving


It's been six weeks now since I started my low carb eating plan. These days we don't say diet because diet is a very tired word. 

So. Let's see what have I been surviving on.


Meatballs, cauliflower fried rice, tomatoes with some chimichurri and stir fried peashoots. It tasted alright.


Roasted pork loin, roasted tomatoes, roasted brocolli with bacon and cauliflower fried rice (again). Taste so so only.


To perk up my so so food, I made more chimichurri. I'm addicted to this stuff.



It transformed my plain tasting food from this....



....into this. Awesome. Chimichurri rocks I tell you.



The roasted peppers also helped to lift the taste of the cold chicken and vegetables.

It has been good so far, just that I get really busy on weekends doing my prep. But it's worth it. I can feel a difference. I think I am losing some weight woohoo!!

I feel a lot better too. No more sluggish sleepy feeling after lunch. I used to feel drowsy and low energy after eating chap fan even without the rice.

Here's a couple more. 




Meatballs with Stir Fried Broccoli and Roasted Yellow and Green Zucchini.



Pulled Pork with Coleslaw, leftover Roasted Potatoes (just 3 small pieces), Cucumbers and Cherry Tomatoes. Oh, I spotted two pieces of bacon among the potatoes. How did they get there? Hmmmm....


Same thing except no more potatoes. I added an egg and a dollop of that green stuff.

And when I get peckish in the afternoon, instead of looking for buns or snacks, I eat these.

  7. 'eating plan' is cool ... some people use 'eating regimen,' but i hate that cos it sounds like a very strict military or medical programme. i like the look of the pork loin and the cauliflower rice ... and chimichurri is a brilliant addition! for variation in future, maybe you could experiment with other healthy sauces like gremolata and salsa verde ... oh, hmmm, snacking on cucumbers ... i actually don't like timun (they're the one thing i ignore in my nasi lemak) ... how about carrot sticks as an afternoon snack instead (more nutrients too!) :)

    1. I happen to love timun :) But I don't really like to eat it by itself like that :( Yeah, should try carrot sticks next. And I will check out gremolata and salsa verde :)

  8. Your low carb meals all look very tasty. I could eat them with less meat because I don't need to eat so much meat. I think I would like the chimichurri too because it looks so green and healthy. Happy Low Carbing! Keep it up! :-)

  10. Everything looks so good, can't believe you're on a diet, eating those!

    Not for me, thank you - I believe moderation is the key and as long as one is healthy, never mind the shape and size. My ex-colleague, same age, retired together, would not eat anything unhealthy, very strict control of her food intake and diet, exercised every day - I was amazed how she could run round the stadium so fast at our age...but she had joined the heavenly choir now. Man proposes, God disposes. Pray...always.

  16. I want to loose weight too. Like your phrase that replace 'Diet'. I tried some low carbo meals but always felt like I'm missing something. I ended up eating more, why? Love your low-carb meals.
