    Moonlights' (temporary) Maintenance

    Today marks my first day back on Atkins. I've done low carb before, it works better for me than anything else, but after a couple of months I find it hard to stick to.

    I also have to take certain medications now which come to 11g carbs, so I'm making my carb allowance 30g daily and spacing my meds through the day. Does this sound all right?

    Posting my menus here to keep myself on track.

    Day1:

    Breakfast/lunch:
    Very large boiled egg with butter
    20g farmhouse cheddar



    -----

    I have 300g mince in the fridge and am thinking about making cheeseburger pie for dinner, maybe. I'm not much of a cook though. Can anyone share their best recipe for this?

    Hi moonlight, good to see your diary. 30g and spacing the meds sound reasonable. Good luck

    Pie in the oven now. Never cooked anything like this. Is it meant to be in two layers or more like a quiche? My egg mix seeped down so I think it will be like a quiche. Didn't completely cover the top...

    Yummy. That's exactly what we had for tea here. Yes the egg does run into the meat.
    Enjoy

    Oh good, I'm glad it looks right. I've never even cooked mince before, only quorn mince, but I think quorn might make this too high carb.

    I left out the onions and mushrooms. Will try it soon.

    Day 1 menu:

    Brunch:
    1 boiled egg with butter
    20g mature cheddar

    Dinner:

    Cheeseburger pie
    (150g mince, 1 egg, 25ml cream, 1/2 tblsp mayo, 50g cheddar 2 tsp Lea and perrins)
    Green salad

    Drinks
    Tea x 2 with unsweetened alpro

    Promise I won't post 20 questions for every meal. Totm started today... Possibly a bad day to start a diet but actually I haven't been hungry.

    Here's what it looked like inside.

    Hmm cheeseburger pie was okay... Not sure I'll have it again but might do the egg mix and have it with mushrooms and bacon, or over broccoli or cauli maybe. Seems versatile that way. I think I just wasn't too keen on egg and beef.

    Proud of myself for cooking it though.

    Also I should always start diets at TOTM. Cramps mean I don't want to eat anything! Usually I eat for Britain in first couple of days low carbing.

    Plan for day 2:

    2 boiled eggs, butter

    Cheese salad maybe?

    Rump steak, mushrooms

    Plenty of tea.

    Boiled eggs were funny tasting - not sure why, maybe I have ketosis tastebuds starting. Anyway only ate one.

    Day 2:

    Boiled egg, butter

    2 slices Parma ham, 50g cheese coleslaw, small salad

    Rump steak, mushrooms

    Might have some rhubarb with cream and splenda later.

    Tea with cream

    ketone breath sure does have a taste of it's own and smell,and for some reason people
    tend to recoil from you lol
    bit of gross information here,but to give yourself an idea if your breath smells or not
    lick the back of your hand and have a snifter

    Breath doesn't smell but everything tastes bitter and odd today, most curious. Have ketostix to use tomorrow.
