Belly fat project October 2014

I started the Belly fat project 7 January 2013. Since I think it works very well with both weight loss and health I continue ūüôā

When standing on the scale October 6 I thought it was showing the wrong number, 77,2 kg!!. I had to step of and try again.
The last time I was on the scale was about two month before it stopped at 81 kg and I was very happy, I reached my goal that was around 82 kg.

LCHF /Paleo bread

[from madforlivet.com] in Danish…

Paleo breadIngredienser:

100 g græskarkerner
100 g solsikke kerner
100 g mandler
100 g valn√łdder
100 g h√łrfr√ł
100 g sesamfr√ł
5 æg
1 dl ekstra jomfru olivenolie
2 tsk salt

Fremgangsmåde:
Bland alle ingredienser i en sk√•l.¬†Kom massen i en smurt form.¬†Bag br√łdet i en time ved 160 grader (forvarmet ovn)

Det er vigtigt at n√łdder, kerner og mandler kommer HELE i br√łdet. Blendes eller kv√¶rnes de, s√• fris√¶ttes de sunde men sarte fedtsyrer og de kan harskne, n√•r br√łdet bages ved 160 grader (og s√• er de ikke spor sunde mere).

Belly-fat project 2013

This year it’s time to really deal with the belly and the project involves…

  1. LCHF diet (Low Carb High Fat)
  2. Supplement of Vitamin D and Omega 3 (fish oil)
  3. Exercise 

LCHF Diet

Basic tip: Maximum 5 grams of carbohydrate (excluding fibre) per 100 grams of food.

Eat all you like

  • Meat:¬†Any type, including beef, pork, game meat, chicken,¬†etc.¬† Feel free to eat the fat on the meat as well as the skin on the chicken. If possible try to choose organic or grass fed meat.
  • Fish and Shellfish:¬†All kinds: Fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel or herring are great.¬†Avoid breading.
  • Eggs:¬†All kinds: Boiled, fried, omelettes,¬†etc.¬†Preferably choose organic eggs.
  • Natural Fat, High-Fat Sauces:¬†Using butter and cream when you cook can make your food taste better and make you feel more satiated. Try a B√©arnaise or Hollandaise sauce, check the ingredients or make it yourself.¬†Coconut oil and olive oil are also good options.
  • Vegetables that Grow Above Ground:¬†All kinds of cabbage, such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts.¬†Asparagus, zucchini, eggplant, olives, spinach, mushrooms, cucumber, lettuce, avocado, onions, peppers, tomatoes etc.
  • Dairy products:¬†Always select full-fat options like real butter, cream (40% fat), sour cream, Greek/Turkish¬†yoghurt¬†and high-fat cheeses.¬†Be careful with regular milk and skim milk as they contain a lot of milk sugar.¬†Avoid¬†flavoured¬† sugary and low-fat products.
  • Nuts:¬†Good to eat instead of candy in front of the television (preferably in moderation).
  • Berries:¬†Okay in moderation, if you are not a super strict or sensitive.¬†Good with whipped cream.

Drink most days

  • Water
  • Coffee:¬†Try it with full-fat cream
  • Tea

Once in a while (You decide when the time is right. Your weight loss may slow down a bit.)

  • Alcohol:¬†Dry wine (regular red or dry white whine), whisky, brandy, vodka and cocktails without sugar.
  • Dark chocolate:¬†Above 70 % cocoa, preferably just a bit.

Avoid if you can

  • Sugar:¬†The worst.¬†Soft drinks, candy, juice, sports drinks, chocolate, cakes, buns, pastries, ice cream, breakfast cereals. Preferably avoid¬†sweeteners as well.
  • Starch:¬†Bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, French fries, potato chips, porridge, muesli and so on. ‚ÄúWholegrain products‚ÄĚ are just less bad.¬†Moderate amounts of root vegetables may be OK (unless you‚Äôre eating extremely low carb).
  • Margarine:¬†Industrially imitated butter with unnaturally high content of omega-6 fat. Has no health benefits, tastes bad.¬†Statistically linked to asthma, allergies and other inflammatory diseases.
  • Beer:¬†Liquid bread.¬†Full of rapidly absorbed carbs, unfortunately.
  • Fruit:¬†Very sweet, lots of sugar.¬†Eat once in a while. Treat fruit as a natural form of candy.

 Breakfast suggestions

  • Eggs and bacon
  • Omelet
  • Leftovers from last night‚Äôs dinner
  • Coffee with cream
  • A can of mackerel and boiled eggs
  • Boiled egg with mayonnaise or butter
  • Avocado, salmon and cr√®me fraiche
  • Sandwich on
  • A piece of very thin hard bread with lots of butter, cheese, ham, etc.
  • Cheese with butter on it
  • Boiled eggs mashed with butter, chopped chives, salt and pepper
  • A piece of brie cheese and some ham or salami
  • High-fat yoghurt with nuts and seeds¬†(and maybe berries)

Lunch and dinner

  • Meat, fish or chicken dishes with vegetables and a rich full-fat sauce.¬†There are many¬†alternatives to potatoes, such as mashed cauliflower.
  • Stews, soups or casseroles with low-carb ingredients.
  • You can ¬†use most recipes in cookbooks if you avoid the carbohydrate-rich ingredients. It‚Äôs often a good idea to add fat (e.g. butter, cream) to the recipe.
  • Drink water with your meal or (occasionally) a glass of wine.

Snacks
When you eat a low-carb diet with more fat and a bit more protein you will probably not need to eat as often. Don’t be surprised if you no longer need to a snack. Many people do well on two or three meals per day. If you need a snack:

  • Rolled-up cheese or ham with a vegetable (some people even spread butter on cheese)
  • Olives
  • Nuts
  • A piece of cheese
  • A boiled egg from the refrigerator
  • Canned mackerel in tomato sauce
