Works for me.

Since the day after Thanksgiving I have been doing a low-carb, low-fat, and super duper sky high from the windows to the walls protein diet. I've been to Trader Joe's practically every day to keep this up since they are the only ones that carry the noms that are kosher and reasonably priced on my self made diet.

I've been trying to drink more water. I drink coffee and tea, and when I get a craving for something sweet I just make a cup of hot chocolate-only 20 cals!

Shopping List:
  • Eggs (Obvy, I only eat the eggwhites)
  • Spicy Ranchero Eggwhite Salad
  • Fat Free Feta Cheese
  • Eggplant Hummus (healthy fats & fiber)
  • Chickenless Chicken (I'm a vegetarian. This soy product has the least carbs that I've found so far)
  • Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • Fat Free Cottage Cheese (actually I haven't bought this yet but it's on the list of "cans")
  • Somona Low Carb Tortilla (3 net carbs and lots of fiber. Y'all know what happens with excess of protein and no fiber >.<)
So that's basically what I eat. I spice things up. The Greek Yogurt I mix in Splenda and Cinnamon and sometimes flaxseed (healthy fats!) and I'd do the same with Cottage Cheese. I'm not into cottage cheese as a savory treat. I typically add pepper to things with hummus and feta. And my eggwhites are usually spiced with a little Ranch dip mix (I buy this one from WinCo that is delish) and the packet can also be used in Greek Yogurt if I want a sour cream-like ranch dip for a burrito.

I bet most of you are cringeing and gagging by now! I know my taste buds are fuck sideways but all that matter is that it works for me! I even eat those zero cal Walden Farms products, currently the peanut butter and blueberry fruit spread on my low carb tortilla. Those Walden Farms products do have a weird chemically taste to them but... um... they are ZERO cals! And it totes kills the cravy for a real fatty, carby and sugary PB&J. Sacrifices Ladies! I'm make them! And I love mixing and matching these foods to make a new combo. Like a wrap of Hummus, Feta and Chickenless Chicken or if there is no Chickenless then I'll just fold over the tortilla like a quesadilla with the Hummus and Feta spread and sprinkled evenly. And if I put in a pan the tortilla gets a little crunchy like a chimichanga. My cheese is feta and my salsa is hummus.  I'm a mexican with Mediterranean tastebuds I guess. 

I'm satisfied and it's working, in combo with the 30 Day Shred that I do 4-5 times a week my body is slowly smoothing out and maybe even getting a little smaller. Most of my jeans fit okay and I'm hoping that in the next week all my jeans will be fitting comfortably. Of course I want them to be falling off of me but gotta take it a day at a time. I already have trouble sleeping. 

At 4 this morning I had to eat a spoonful of hummus so that I could sleep. And my joints hurt. I'm hoping this is because I've been working out in the tv room instead of my carpeted bedroom and the impact is what triggering the pain. Although, I do notice when I consistently cut back in calories that my joints act up. Oh well. Fuck em. They don't hurt that much.

Must. Fit. Into Skinny Jeans!!!

Ferret. Ferret! FERRET!!!


  1. Woohoo! You are rockin it! I wish we had a Trader Joes. I live probably very very far away from the closest one, but I've heard good things about their food. You Californians....

    Your food does sound wacky, but I would eat it. I have those odd tastes too. And its working for you, so thats awesome. Keep it up!


  2. omgggg....I wish I were keeping it high protein, but all I've been wanting/seeking is carby carb carbs. *waah*

    penguin status is SO WHACK.

  3. Your food actually sounds really, really good to me. This whole post made me crave a big meal and a crazy workout session!

    Your plan sounds really awesome, hope the sleeping gets better.


  4. This honestly sounds amazing to me.

  5. Your food ideas sound pretty fun to me...

    Haha, I thought I was the only weirdo that gets up at 3 am to have a spoonful of something... Usually it's Cheerios, but sometimes hummus or jelly.

    Those Walden Farms things are edible? I've heard the chemical aftertaste thing, but if they taste ok other than that, I might try some...
