Tuesday, 27 January 2009


Bit of feedback on plan so far:
  • Noticed am feeling full of energy

  • Able to train harder/do more reps

  • Working out 2 hours minimum each day + 6 mile walk -- a lot easier than it was at the start of January!No longer exhausted after my walk

  • Starting the day with Fried eggs and plenty of FAT keeps me full for at least 4-6 hours.

  • Being deep in Ketosis keeps ALL hunger away

Have been using my stepper at home quite a lot for 1 hour periods, find this is easy to do whilst watching television, adding in weights really helps avoid any boredom. Definitely worthwhile!

Crustless Spinach and Feta Quiche

Spinach and Feta Quiche Low carb style!

1.Saute off some spinach with garlic and paprika ( Use butter or olive oil..plenty of it)

2. Place into a lined spring form pan or pie dish

3. Mix up egg mixture, I used 8 small eggs-- equal amounts liquid with lacto-free milk/nutmilk/soy milk..whatever you want to use.

4. Pour on top of spinach, top with crumbled up feta cheese

5. Into a pre-heated oven at 150 , increase to 180 after 10 minutes. Mine took 50 minutes, I kept checking on it. When the knife comes out clean its ready!

6. Leave to cool, serve and enjoy!

Really pleased this is the first one I have made, came out really smooth and silky..amazed how smooth the filling yummy!! mmm.. going to have some for snacks tomorrow, lush!

Would think ideal for breakfasts on the run, can use any fillings and reheat or eat cold!


Decided to blog mainly about low-carb stuff, but also some other girly things that don’t have anything to do with nutrition. This will mainly be dedicated to food, nutrition and new recipes.

Bit of background, Vegetarian of 12 years, Fruitarian of 1 year, followed DANDR Atkins to loose 42lb now cycling egg fasting in order to get fit, ripped and ready for summer!

The choice to change my diet radically was mainly for weight loss, I probably wasn’t anywhere near as active as I am now, but my weight was sitting still and I felt it was worth trying a different way of life for a short period. Been low carb since August 2008.

I can’t tolerate a huge amount of dairy, am playing around with doing this with and without. Shall see how that goes! The decision to go back to being a lacto-ova vegetarian after being a strict vegan was a pretty big deal for me, I think some sort of middle ground is best!

For the last 10 weeks have been cycling Egg fasting with Stillman’s diet, the next 4 weeks aims to be as low carb as possible, playing around with amounts of fat and seeing the impact this has on weight loss as well as strength during training.

Usually consume 10-15g carbs per day, Aim to keep it as close to ZERO as possible.
