Tools

I sometimes get asked about what tools I use and this is a screenshot from Lifesum.

After I get the amount in grams of carbs, proteins and fat I put it in my “numbers” table and let my formulas calculate the calories, E% and skaldeman.

In my table the energy is calculated slightly different than the Lifesum tool.

 

For dinner I made a goat cheese butter (100 g butter + 50 g goat cheese) to two nice pork chops. No veggies today.

Indian lunch

Today we went for lunch and the only thing I ate in the evening was a lot of parmesan cheese. The lunch was at the Indian buffet and I had roughly the same things I usually have there.

New government in Sweden

Today there was general election for both the national parliament, regional and local. There has been a “rightish” government the last 8 years but now it seems like we will have a more left influenced government. The big problem is that the left wing block does not have own majority and the quite new big “extreme right wing” party outside the two coalitions have doubled in size and will be able to dictate the way Sweden is ruled if the to big coalitions can not agree… It will be complicated…

For me personally I do not really see anything will change…

My dinner tonight was a nice entrecôte with a soft and creamy butter of 100 g butter and 100 g Gorgonzola cheese. I also made a cole slaw to increase the fat even further.

Feeling naked

It is strange who “dependent” you get on the smartphones. Today I went to the stor to play some games and half way there I realized I forgot my phone at home. I really felt naked all day. No FB updates, no mails, no refreshing of the different “building games”… After a while I actually felt quite “liberated” not having the phone…

When I got home I made dinner. Today it was an parmesan omelette (2 eggs, 50 g parmesan), sauce bearnaise and two sausages. I also ate some extra cheese and drank a lot of coke zero at the store…

Test results

Now I have entered the results in my table. It is the Swedish ranges and numbers and I am not really sure if they translate to other countries syntax.

Skärmavbild 2014-09-11 kl. 21.59.52

So all numbers are within the ref ranges.

I was away on business trip today and we had some soup for lunch. I asked for ingredients and there were som carbs in the soup. Carrots, flour etc. To ad fat I had some butter.

14 0911-TommyTappar -20140911-00004IMG_9020

For a late dinner I fried 3 sausages (yes, only 2 on the plate…) and made a small 2 egg omelette with 50g of parmesan cheese. To push the fat I had pre fab bearnaise.

For dinner tonight i made a real nice bolognaise with parmesan butter and broccoli

5 years!

Last Saturday it was exactly 5 years since I started LCHF. I started quite strict and have continued eating very strict since then.

I have daily stats from February 22nd 2010 until today and they look like this:

Skärmavbild 2014-09-08 kl. 22.12.33

 

I have weekly data regarding weight from day one September 6th 2009. Interesting first two years…

Skärmavbild 2014-09-08 kl. 21.41.56

After 2 years I “stalled” and now the last year I have gained some… I have done some thinking about the reasons for this but I cannot really see a clear picture. I think I have had more calories in average but I have also walked more. I might have had more cheese and slightly more carbs. I do however think the main reason could be a more personal reason. I have not written much about it here and definitely not on my Swedish page. I have discussed with a lot of people but almost nothing has been “published”.

I am pretty convinced a lot of the body functions is regulated by hormones and the wold surrounding us are affecting the hormones. When I look at the graph above I see one thing pretty clear… The weight is following my “mood” and my “life situation” pretty close. Especially my situation at work. This is a bit of a stretch for me to write here since a lot of my co-wokers are reading my posts. Maybe not so many this english one but I will open up a bit on the Swedish site to… During 2012 I did had a huge dip in motivation at work. Several things made me start thinking about looking for a new job and I was really close to actually applying… Then something happened and the motivation came back some only to hit rock bottom mid late 2013 and early 2014. All this year I have not really been at my best at work and I do think this really have an impact on both hormones and my eating habits (the increased calories…). I am not sure I am right in this, but It is hard for me not to see this… Right now I am still not 100% motivated and I am on a roller-coaster. Sometimes I just want to quit without having a new job and sometimes I am feeling OK… The only good times I have now days are when I am playing games or discussing/writing/living LCHF… :-) Work is now more of a place to go to and meet my nice co-workers and earn money… This is a really strange feeling for me since I have always loved going to work… So I do think this whole situation is really having an impact on me on several levels.

I just hope I can get the motivation back and start losing some weight again… :-)

Ok, so maybe not the most positive 5 year post…

What abou the future then? I get the question about how long I will continue to eat LCHF and I do not really see why I should quit. I have never felt better (except the above mentioned motivation dip…) and I will continue with this for as long as I live. I see no reason whatsoever to quit.

 

Back to the present then…

We went out for lunch again today and we went to our new favorite Indian buffet. It is really close to work (like 150 yards) and really good. One good thing is that they have real butter for the bread-eaters (and me…).

I had mixed meats and tried to avoid the sweet sauces…

For dinner I had minced beef in mayo seasoned with garlic and black pepper.

Totally forgot

Yesterday I had my 5 year anniversary eating LCHF… I just realized it so the post right now will not be long. I will write a longer post tomorrow or tuesday about the 5 years and the next 50+ years… .-)

I was away gaming today and when I got home I made a salad of 200(!) g of mayo, fried broccoli and a little onions. I ate the sallad with a nice pork chop.
