3 delicious low carb meals

I really need to lose weight. The only successful way I’ve lost weight has been to take a low carb approach. Whether this goes on or not will depend on motivation. Today I was motivated.

The thing about low carb eating is that it isn’t as easy as it sounds. You may think it’s all bacon and eggs and meat but it isn’t. It’s important to carefully choose vegetables and during the initial induction phase it’s important not to eat fruit. The big risks in the induction phase are constipation and gout. Both are uncomfortable and painful. Whether I continue depends on how I feel.

For breakfast I prepared a low carb fried egg, bacon and parmesan cheese dish.

I really like cooking my bacon in a small benchtop oven which allows easy melting of cheese.


After grocery shopping I went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra and found a pelican, black swan and some other water birds

For lunch I made a beef mince roll with tasty Coon cheese wrapped in iceberg lettuce

This didn’t look that exciting but it tasted surprisingly good.


For dinner I made a prawn and bacon omelet

  1. I have never done a low carb diet – I am the queen of carbs, actually! Whatever works for you is good, I am doing the 5:2 diet and it is working for me.

  2. I’ve been tempted to do the 5:2 but low carb has worked for me before to get some weight off quickly without feeling like I’m feeling hungry all the time.

  3. Good work getting started Gary! You know aim a veteran low carb-er so I wholeheartedly approve. Some tips to avoid constipation and gout: good healthy fats like coconut oil will help with the former and lots of water will help with both. Also, sticking with free range, pasture fed meat and wild fish will keep you in better balance.

    Actually with LC you can try intermittent fasting like 5:2 really easily because you’re already in ketosis so you find it quite easy.

    Looking forward to great results again 🙂

  4. Thanks Danae, I’ve been drinking lots of water, I’ll also be chewing lots of gum which helps to keep things moving 😀
