We use bbc good food website a lot for recipes and all recipes have carbs, sugars and fibre separately.

Low Carb (high fat) Pirates

Posted: 17/10/2016 at 17:01

Hello,

I'm not a pirate but hopefully still welcome here. I 'know' ButterCup and it's her fb feed that has alerted me to LCHF and finding this thread that I have now read from start to finish. And sorry for the lengthy post.

Bit of background. I've always been active; volleyball, running, hiking, mountain biking, cycling, dancing etc and never been overweight until I hit my early 30's. Not exactly sure what happened but think it was a combination of things. First moving further away from work and commuting for 2 years, hormonal changes possibly and eating as much as my bf does. So over the last 4-5 years I have reached my heaviest weight ever, which is about 2-3 stone more than acceptable. And as a shortie 5'4", it shows. (Yes, profile picture is from 6 years ago).

I've never done diets. Starving myself is not something I've ever gone for. I always start by eating healthily again and then this goes to pot at some point with chocolate and crisps starting to creep into my lunch daily again. We pretty much always cook from scratch but we do love pasta meals, and there's always potatoes or rice. I’ve never really properly tried to get rid of the weight as although it makes my hobbies and exercise bit more difficult, I can still do them and I still don’t ‘see’ myself as fat. I know I am but only photos really hit it home how much I’ve changed.

I’ve been gathering information, read the What the Fat book, checked Diet Doctor website, recipes on Pinterest etc. I’m planning on doing the two-week challenge. I don’t think long term I want to keep really low carb but willing to give this ago and hopefully shifting some weight. Bf isn’t fully aboard but as long as I make the food, he’s quite happy to eat what is in front of him. Already tried cauliflower mash with sausages.

Couple of question though. On recipes do you add all carbs, sugar and fibre to get the whole carb content? Is gravy from granules ok? How do you know what % should you go for between carbs/fat/protein? I do log food in MFP, do you have to have the premium version to set your own macros? Is it worth if for £7.99 a month?

Thanks and looking forward to keeping up to date with this thread.

Say you would get an entry into 2017 in the ballot, can you defer for whatever reason to 2018? And how much does it actually cost? Total marathon newbie and just asking in case...
