Back Down a Bit...

Hello All,

My breakfast yesterday was 2 Oasis toast w/butter and peanut butter and blueberries on top and 2 eggs.
Yesterday was a Humid - Hot - Muggy - Mess!! We went to the new house to meet a contractor that has done work for us in the past to get an estimate to put concrete down the side of the new house. We have to do that before moving in because of the dogs. I felt like I was melting. It was about 98 outside but felt much higher. Today's weather was much of the same just not quite as bad.

On the way in the car I ate 1 low fat string cheese and a few walnuts.

By the time we were done it was after 2pm and I was a bit hungry so we decided to go to Red Robin. I had a burger w/blue cheese and buffallo sauce and they gladly wraped it in lettuce for me and I had about 7 fries w/ranch to dip.

We stopped at the store and we got home around 3:30 and I couldn't wait to try one of the CheeseCake muffins I made the day before.
For dinner I just had a spinach salad w/feta cheese, bacon bits, a few bites of left over chicken and Sprouts spicy chipotle dressing.

Breakfast this morning;
I am gonna stay away from making Almond or Flaxseed muffins for a while. I made a coconut flour muffin out of;
1 tb coconut oil, 1 tb chia seeds, 1/2 t baking pwdr, 1 egg, a little U.S.A. milk, 1 heaping tb of coconut flour, a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese, and 1/3 small zucchini cut up real small. Cooked it in the microwave for 2.15 min and ate w/butter and natures hollow on top. Real good..

You know I have a recipe for Zucchini-Cheese coconut flour bread on my recipe page and I LOVE the way it tastes with the zucchini and cheese inside and thought I could make it individual too, and it was GREAT!

This morning my weight was back down to 151.5 so that''s 2 lbs less than the other day and only 3.5 higher than my low. I feel better eating my tortilla and toast the past 2 days and my tummy doesn't feel as bloated. Hopefully by the end of the next week I will be back to normal.

I remember when we first started with the morning muffins, some of you that track stuff in MyFitnessPal were saying that it had WAY too many calories.  I agree and think the Almond and Flaxseed flours are just too fattening and am gonna reserve Almond and flaxseed flours for my treats and not muffins anymore. We shall see if that helps.

Lunch today was a Carb Chopper wheat tortilla w/pepper jack cheese, jalapenos, avocado, a turkey patty and some hummus.. I have to say the flavor was awesome and it really hit the spot.

snack; I had some of my addiction food; popcorn.

Hubby is working nights the next 3 nights so I don't know what I will eat for dinner yet. I plan on going for a long 3 mile walk with girls in a few.

Thanks for listening. Lots of love to you all.

My thought for the day:

Positive Attitude Makes a Big Difference, Positive Quotes
A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life. 

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. I am too staying away from baking with those flours, I feel like they have not helped at all, like I've mentioned in my blog.
    I am back to eating wheat and grains like i did in the beg. of the bfc in which i lost 10 pounds

  2. I love coconut flour muffins. I would have never thought to put zucchini and cheese in them, but I will have to try that.

    Thanks for the great idea.

    Isn't this weather miserable? ugh, I am so sick of it.

  3. I think you're making the right choice with the almond flour. I only use it sparingly. I've grown a bit tired of the taste of the flaxseed meal at the moment as well, so that's going in the back of the cupboard for a while. Have a good weekend, and stay out of that heat! It's hot here , too, not that hot though. :)

  4. I only use almond flour in the protein bite treats and have stayed away from the minute muffins for awhile now. It's all trial and error I guess to see what works with each of us.

  5. I'll be a little sad if it gets to that point and I have to eliminate the almond flour. I don't think I overindulge in it but I do have a little most days. Variety is what keeps me super happy eating this way and all these “flours” helps to keep things varied. Dr. Davis said in a recent on line chat that he didn't think you could overdo nut flours if you were eating them within reason (clearly not an entire pan of protein bars ... lol). I guess time will tell for me. Glad you are back down - I'm sure you are relieved :) On that note, I’m off to make cheesecake with a pecan crust … nail biting … hopefully I won’t be up next week :)

  6. Rosalie, do you think the cheesecake muffins would freeze well? I can't be forced to eat them all. Better if I could freeze them and take out only what I need. Thanks!

    1. I guess so - give it a try. I just ate one with my breakfast this morning ha-ha :-)

    2. Dr. Davis suggests eating it one morning for breakfast since there is nothing bad about it. I'm going to try it too :) I just made his lemon cheesecake which is quite similar to your muffin versions anyway (I'll post about mine so you can see the differences). I added a bit of cocoa to his crust recipe ... the filling taste divine but the whole pie is still baking so it will be hours until I get to try a whole slice. I may try and freeze some slices and see what happens. I have a line up of friends who all want a piece so I'll see what's left after that.

  7. I am about 4 weeks in with BFC. I feel lighter, pants are a tad loose, but I have not lost. I am mainly eating the fast track diet, with 0 grains, but am eating bread I make iwth almond and flax flours. I am interested in what you have to say about those causing weight gain, or at least stalling loss. I have not read the book, so I do not know the science behind the carb limits. Is it really best to inlcude portions of grain carbs to support loss? I am not only interested in quick loss, I would like healthy loss over time.

    I would love any insight you can throw my way. And also I have been enjoying your blog immensely. I love your honest and personal stories.


    1. Sachiko - first thing is that you really need to get at least the original Belly Fat Cure book. It will help you understand the whole concept more.

      Friend me on Facebook and include a message so I know who its from and I will do my best to help you :-)

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
