Low Carb Class & Challenge Updates + Delicious Low Carb Dip, So Easy!


 

I have fun updates and exciting news for you!

Plus a new low carb creation you’ll LOVE. πŸ™‚

Keto SnacksFirst, I’m working on Low Carb Meetups for both Atlanta GA and Asheville NC, as well as Middle TN. If you’re in those areas, stay tuned for dates & details!;)

Second, I screwed up. 😐

I originally planned to kick off our next Low Carb Challenge on September 1st, not realizing that was 1) a Friday, and 2) Labor Day Weekend.

I know better than to kick off right before a holiday weekend πŸ™„ and Friday would make a terrible weekly weigh-in day! (lol) Because most people would blow the weekend knowing they had all week to make it up. πŸ˜›

The Low Carb Challenge will kick off on Tuesday September 5th instead.

Click Here & Sign Up (FREE) and get ready for an amazing Fall Challenge together!

I’m also working on a SWEET deal for you on a low carb recipe & meal plan collection you’ll LOVE, so stay tuned. I’m negotiating a *serious* discount for you on it, and they’re working out the details now. πŸ˜‰

And last but not least, I spent all weekend recording the Low Carb Classes into MP4 format, which means you’ll be able to download them – or watch the classes on any tablet or mobile device. As soon as I get them all uploaded, that is.

If you signed up for the classes you’ll get an email from me as soon as those are ready! And I have a surprise BONUS coming your way soon too. πŸ™‚ ♥

Speaking of the weekend, here’s what I ate…

My Low Carb Meals on Saturday

I had an extra big serving of my usual “low carb cereal” with THREE servings of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy cottage cheese, 4 strawberries and 18 grams of blueberries. It came to 7 net carbs and 87% healthy fat – and delicious. πŸ™‚

For lunch I made a big plate of eggs: 4 eggs scrambled in a full TBSP of real butter with colby jack cheese (cubed off the block).

Cheesy LCHF Eggs scrambled in Real Butter

I ate *almost* all of that. Obviously I got my appetite back. πŸ™‚ lol

For dinner I just had a Keto Brownie Nutrition Bar with mozzarella string cheese.

I think what happened is my breakfast was closer to lunch, and lunch was closer to dinnertime.;)

I also had 6 mugs of coffee and 72 ounces of water…

Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Saturday:

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday

I started the day off by finishing up all the leftovers I had on hand. First, the rest of the scrambled eggs I didn’t finish the day before…

Then the rest of my O’Charley’s leftovers: grilled salmon, broccoli & asparagus.

That was delicious – again. πŸ™‚

I didn’t feel like getting out OR shopping, so I got creative…

I got the brand new Peanut Butter Keto Kookie in one of my keto boxes recently, even though they don’t come out until next month. πŸ™‚

They’re VERY good, btw!

As usual, I decided to make a meal out of it πŸ™‚ and stacked it with kosher cream cheese plus frozen raspberries & blueberries:

I may have licked my plate clean 😳 lol

It was THAT good!

For dinner I decided to make tuna salad.

And then discovered I was out of mayo. 😯 Rah!

But I *did* have some Tostitos brand Creamy Spinach Dip, and plenty of fun low carb things to DIP with, so…

Creative Low Carb Snack Ideas

I mixed 4 TBSP of the Creamy Spinach Dip with a can of tuna. πŸ™‚

Then I portioned out one serving each of the Rawxies and Pecans:

The Habanero BBQ Pecans and the Rawxies Crunch are both VERY good VERY low carb snacks. It’s nice to have something CRUNCHY to snack on!! πŸ™‚

That had to be the BEST tuna salad I’ve ever had. πŸ™‚

Or I guess you could just call it spinach dip with tuna.

Whatever you call it… it was seriously delicious and made for a great low carb dip. It would be great on a low carb bagel as well!

Low Carb Spinach Tuna Dip - so simple!

Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Sunday:

Remember in my last food diary that I said I would get back to my daily walks with Slim? He’s my great dane. πŸ™‚ Anyway… he made it all of ONE mile, lol – and spent the rest of the day like this:

Slim

Poor guy! haha – We’ll have to work back up to those brisk 2-3 mile walks. πŸ˜‰

 

I hope you enjoyed a quick tour of my meals. πŸ™‚

    Hey Lynn, Glad to see you’re back to yourself. A few questions: I know you’ve said many times calories doesn’t really concern you when doing LC, I read another Keto site/blog and she has a calculator on the site and I had to punch in my numbers just to see. So for rapid weight loss while following a keto diet it recommended 807 calories per day. For normal weigh loss while following a keto diet it said 1200. Your thoughts?
    Secondly I’m going through menopause or perimenopause or whatever you want to call it. Do you recommend LC for weight loss during menopause? Do you know of ladies that are able to lose while doing LC during menopause? Oh and of course I have hypothyroidism.
    I’m exhausted most of the time during the day but I think that has more to do with menopause than my thyroid issues. Per the doctor my thyroid meds are finally where they need to be and honestly I was feeling pretty good until the past month or two.
    THank you for all you do for us. You’re the best!

      Thank you Michelle! πŸ™‚

      Keto is great yes, and will even help increase your energy – so long as you’re getting enough nutrients and calories of course. The “Keto vs Calories” topic is a HOT debate across low carb communities…

      I couldn’t live on 800’ish calories a day – and have ANY energy at all. And even last week when I had no appetite and was under 1,000 calories and barely over that another day – I didn’t lose any weight. I also don’t gain eating 2,000 calories a day consistently. I tend to lose weight in spurts, regardless of my calorie count, which is pretty typical.

      My advice: keep it VERY simple for now: 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum. That healthy fat is the KEY, so 70-80% consistently for more energy AND faster weight loss. Don’t worry about calories for now.

      There are LOTS of women going through menopause and dealing with thyroid issues in my challenge group, so that’s a big topic there. Are you in the group? It’s a great place to talk to others going through the same thing…

  2. I bought a box of keto brownies chocolate almond crunch and I hate them…..I have to lose 7 pounds to get to my goal of 122 and nothing seems to be working…I stay on the plan but I’m not losing and I’m getting discouraged…HELP

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Peggie,

      That last 10 pounds is the MOST challenging. How are you tracking, and are you getting at least 70% fat consistently?

      What was it you didn’t like about the KetoBrownie nutrition bars? Was it taste, texture, or what? I’m finding all the feedback very interesting! πŸ™‚ Are there keto or low carb nutrition bars you do like?

  3. Yolanda says:

    Hi Lynn.
    I was wondering why yiou changed the ingredients in your favorite “cereal’?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      I often add blueberries – because they have great nutrients and add a lot of flavor. And I added the extra serving of pecans because I was feeling HUNGRY. πŸ™‚

  4. PattyAnn says:

    hi Lynn! First of all, a BIG thank you for switching the start date for the fall low carb challenge!! We’re going camping this weekend and and i was totally stressed out trying to figure out how on earth i was going to eat low carb and keep track without WIFI. Ugh!! Anyway, thank you! You made my day, and i look forward to being on this challenge with you!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      lol PattyAnn, I’m so glad that worked out better for you! I figured it would be a TOUGH start date for a lot of people. πŸ˜‰ ENJOY your low carb camping trip! Here’s to an awesome Fall with GREAT results!! *cheers*

  5. Michelle says:

    Thanks Lynn for the advice. Are you referring to the facebook challenge group?

  6. Debbie says:

    Hi Lynn
    Just wanted to pass along some info. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this but I went to order some of Pizootz peanuts that came in the July Keto Krate. I tried to use 20% off code (expires 8/31/17) a few weeks ago and again yesterday. They won’t accept the code. I tried to email them but never got a response. I know you are not affiliated with their company but wanted to share my experience. I’ll be letting Keto Krate know as well.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Thank you, Debbie – and definitely let them know. They should honor that discount code for you. πŸ˜‰ Did you get a response from either of them yet??

      Those Pizootz peanuts were SO good!! That’s the second flavor I’ve tried, and I *love* them.

  7. Good to know that you have your appetite back, Lynn. The recipes look yummy, as always. πŸ™‚

    I am looking forward to starting the Challenge, and the change of date works well for me too. I am slacking a bit with my low carb nutrition, so it would be a good way to stay on track and stretch my comfort zone a bit.

    I have a few friends who might be interested in it, and perhaps some of my page followers would want to join too. Taking part in a challenge would be a great start for them I think.

    This has also given me an idea for my next blog post, so I might just write it today! πŸ™‚
