No Carb Diet List Meat and VeggiesIn speaking on protein for weight loss some have mentioned they’d like to know what I’m eating when I talk about my diet. So I’ve decided to give you the no carb diet food list in my crazy, sexy life! If what I’m doing can help anyone, I’d love to share. Many confuse my present diet with the keto diet. It isn’t the same.

I am basically eating protein and vegetables. No grains, no dairy, no fruit, no sugar, no, no, no, no. Just protein and vegetables.No no no no no

I am on it for three months, and then I can add in my good grains and fruit again. I get a cheat day every ten days instead of five, like I used to. It is a really tough diet, but it has yielded some great results! I did get interrupted by a bout of virus that put me on the BRAT diet for two weeks, or my results would be even better!

Breakfasts in My Crazy Sexy Life

The happiest I’ve ever been was finding out that not eating til noon, while only drinking coffee and water was actually healthy for me. I kept trying to eat after I got up, and it just made me feel rotten all day, along with wanting to eat everything under the sun. I always make better choices when I don’t do that.

I found out what I was doing was intermittent fasting. I wasn’t eating for fourteen hours between dinner and breakfast. Now just because it was that late, doesn’t mean that the coffee and water were my breakfast. I just needed to do everything later because I workout before I eat, and I stay up pretty late. So if you do anything like this, you definitely want to take into consideration things like your schedule, when you go to bed, when you have to do your workouts if you do them, and staying productive in your work.

So I like to follow up those workouts with a high protein breakfast. To help build the muscles back up that I’ve just torn down. I get bored if have the same thing all of the time, but convenience sometimes outweighs boredom. So here’s the list of what I eat from most often to least often. It is not a huge list, because breakfast is kind of a hard meal for me to make a big deal out of.

  1. Protein shake – vegan, usually chocolate or vanilla with almond milk
  2. scrambled organic eggs x2 – with garlic, onion, sweet peppers, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and sometimes avocado, mustard, and bacon (usually beef or turkey)
  3. hard-boiled eggs x2, sometimes with cherry tomatoes or carrots and hummus.

No Carb scrambled eggsAnd that’s pretty much it. I’m obviously not a huge breakfast person. I’ll sometimes mix my protein shake with my favorite green supplement drink, which I will definitely have a later blog about! Or if I feel like using my favorite blender, I’ll add a scoop of peanut butter to my chocolate shake.

My Crazy Sexy Lunch

OK, not so much. I also have a hard time really going all out for lunches because of my schedule. It usually gets eaten between 2:30 and 4. Yes, I know, for most that’s almost dinner time. But sometimes my lunches are really light, and sometimes they’re a little heavier if I eat left overs, or if it is earlier as opposed to later. Because of the kids’ schedule, especially during school-time, we have to get dinner done by 6:30 or 7. So I can’t eat a ton if I eat at the later time.

No Carb Diet List Bloated Belly

And I hate, hate, hate, feeling overly full! So I’m pretty conservative on the amount of food I eat for any meal. Plus I eat pretty slowly, because I have found if I eat too fast I either eat too much, or I get super bloated. Yuck!

  1. Salad- with greens, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, celery, hard-boiled egg, sunflower seeds or leftover meat from previous meals, like grilled chicken, and a balsamic vinaigrette that I make with the Good Season’s mix.
  2. carrots, sweet peppers, and hummus with a leftover protein, like grilled or roasted chicken.
  3. grilled hamburger with salsa and hummus
  4. Chili – if we have leftovers.No Carb Diet Hummus

So as you can see my lunch is filled with leftovers, because they are so convenient. I mean I’m an actor, mother of 4, and commercial real estate agent who blogs. I got no time! But if I didn’t love salad, I’d never be able to do this diet! I absolutely love salads, and especially my dressing! The days I have anything else are usually only because I didn’t have a salad made, or I was craving chili.

Winner, Winner, Protein Dinner!

Dinner is definitely my biggest meal. It’s the time of day that I have to have time to prepare because I’m cooking for three to six other people, depending on who’s not working that night. It’s also difficult because I have to make a meal for everyone else, who aren’t on my no carb diet. So it’s the hardest time for craving foods I can’t eat. Though the kids have adapted to some changes we’ve made rather nicely!

  1. Chili, chili, chili! Made with pinto beans, hamburger, black beans, canned diced tomatoes, and corn
  2. Spaghetti with hamburger and black bean pasta
  3. Grilled chicken with green beans, salad, or a variety of frozen vegetables: broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, peas
  4. Grilled hamburger with above veggies.
  5. Taco spiced hamburger made into a taco salad with refried beans, my salad I make above, salsa and hummus
  6. Grilled Fish (Salmon, cod and halibut are the most common)
  7. A Chinese lettuce wrap with grilled chicken, egg, peanuts, green peppers, red peppers, onions, soybeans or peas, and avocado oil.

I have times when I just crave the chili. I don’t know what it is, but I absolutely love it as much as salad. Pasta and spaghetti sauce are another meal I go crazy over, which was hard because we always used brown rice pasta. No grains, no pasta! So I was ecstatic when we found the black bean pasta, especially because it has no other type of starch in it to make it pasta-y!

No Carb Diet List Has Snacks? Desserts?

If you haven’t noticed, one of my other favorite foods is hummus. It is a really healthy and tasty food, and goes so well with different vegetables and meats! And it’s filling! But I have some other favorite snacks too!

  1. Hummus x 10! with sweet peppers, carrots, celery, or cherry tomatoes
  2. celery with almond butter
  3. a spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter
  4. a handful of mixed nuts

As for desserts? Well I have seen some really yummy looking fat bombs, including peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter, etc. There are a lot of keto friendly recipes I’ve found. And I want to try all of them! However, many are sweetened with maple syrup, honey, or use cream cheese, and have other things that just don’t go with this no carb diet. And it’s a no sugar diet as well. So I’ll have to save them for cheat days and when I’m off of this diet in a month and a half!

Hope This No Carb Diet List Helped!

I have found that I can stay satisfied even though I can’t have many foods I was used to eating. It makes it easier when you can finally see your muscles like you want to. I think the hardest thing to give up was my glass of red wine every night and my fruit! Especially because this is during cherry season. Boy I miss cherries!

But I also believe life is meant to be lived to the fullest, so I will cheat once in a while and have that wine with my black bean pasta, or my chili. However I have found that I feel better about life the stronger and more in shape that I feel. I have literally gotten headaches after cheat days because of eating the sugar. It’s amazing the longer I’m on this diet, the more I feel awful when I eat badly. So it’s become easier and easier to keep on it, and harder and harder to cheat believe it or not!
My Crazy Sexy Life On No Carb Diet

One snack that is super healthy and may calm cravings for sweets at least, is dark chocolate. I have yet to try 100% cacao. But I plan on checking it out to see if it fits into this diet, because I looooooove chocolate! I also know I’ll be cycling this diet in again once in a while, and next time I’ll make sure it’s not during cherry season!

  1. I love reading your story and how you eat. You have a healthy diet and eat really well! Celery with almond butter sounds yummmm, I love almond butter, drool!
    Thanks for keeping it real and teaching others how to eat a healthy lifestyle 🙂

  2. Great article!! I too loooooove chocolate, but I don’t think I could do 100% cocoa. I do notice that eating a lot of carbs makes me groggy. Keep up the awesome work!
    You Rock!!

    1. Thank you so much David! When you get groggy from the carbs, is it a certain type of carb that makes you groggy? You get carbs from vegetables, that’s why my diet allows for as many vegetables as I want to eat! You are awesome!

  3. Hi. I love your Protein diet, the recipes from breakfast through to dinner, all sound delicious. I believe your diet might be perfect for my little great granddaughter, who was diagnosed with diabetes 1. The only question I have for you relates to dinner. When do you actually eat your last meal?. I can still hear the words of my mother, who passed away many years ago, when she would tell us to never eat dinner past 6pm. She would say “sleeping on a full stomach is very bad for you. Do you agree with this? All the Best Jim

    1. Hello Jim! I’ve tried to make anything I eat as enjoyable as possible so I don’t miss the foods I’ve cut out as much! Spices really are the best way to do that! That’s such a tough disease, my mom had it.. though she was Type II. If my info helps her that is wonderful! I totally agree that sleeping on a full stomach is bad! It will make you feel bad too, your mother was very smart. I always make sure my last meal is around 4 hours before my bedtime. Going to bed at 1 or 2 in the morning can make that pretty late, but I also eat with my family. So it is usually no later than 7-8pm. I wish you and your granddaughter the best! Thank you so much for your input!

  4. Hi there. Interesting read. Great to hear its working for you. I am a vegan so I might be a bit biased. Ha! But you are right that once you start a healthy diet, you get so use to it, that when you start eating badly again, it just feels so wrong. I am encouraged by your discipline and that is something we all need to make diet changes in our lifestyle. I have never tried a no carb diet myself, as a vegan this would live me with really nothing to eat. I think we all should experiment with ways of eating more healthy and find what works best for us. Your no carb diet promotes plant based eating which I support. I believe that a more plant based diet is helpful not only to ourselves but it helps the environment as well. Have you ever considered going 100% plant based? I would be curious to know how it measured up with the no carb diet. Thanks.

    1. Thank you Dwyan! Thank you for the complement! I really fought discipline with food before because I love all kinds of food! But I really am happier eating the way I am, because when I feel strong and healthy, it just makes life so much more enjoyable than eating whatever you want. Thank goodness for friends and family that tell it like it is! I agree, I really hope more people see that there is more enjoyment in life when you disconnect from the sugar addiction and find ways to satisfy that need with healthy foods. I have considered going 100% plant based, but have not pulled the trigger on that change as of yet. I do like meat, though I don’t support the direction the meat industry has gone. I was raised in farm country where we hunted our food and didn’t waste what we brought home. I only do my no carb diet for 3 months at a time, so when I’m able to add my healthy grains back in, it is something I was considering trying to see how it worked with my lifestyle! I may be giving you a holler for advice! Thank you so much for your input!

  5. I have finally found a person who pretty much eats as I do! Everybody tells me that I am not eating correctly because I aaaaalways skip breakfast. I simply cannot eat at that time. My first meal is at 4:00 pm and I will then eat at night again. Both these meals are light because I, as you, hate feeling stuffed. So I don’t stuff myself. What I also do is walk. I try to walk about 100 km. a month, sometimes more and sometimes less, depending on the season as I live in Athens, Greece and things can get a little hot here during summer and quite cold in winter. To make a long story short, I have managed to lose 8 kilos in 3 months which is not too bad if you consider that my heavy was 76 kilos and I now weigh 68. That’s more than 10% of my total weight! As you, I avoid sugar and sweets in general, although I try not to be fanatic about anything and just try to have rules of thumb which I do adhere to. By the way, I am a 56 year old male which I am pretty sure, has to be put into the equation also.
    I loved your post and I honestly didn’t think I would encounter what I read but am very happy I did. Honest and candid! Keep up the good work.

    1. Yes there aren’t very many people who eat like us! Walking is really good for you too, and congrats on the weight loss! I think what you’re doing sounds great if it works for you. That the biggest thing I like to point out with my information, even though it may work for me, if it doesn’t work for you then try something else and you’ll find what does. And yes I think age does have to be considered as part of the equation! I am so glad you enjoyed my information, thank you so much for the encouragement!

  6. Hello there! Great read you got here. I do like that you are considering your schedule. My schedule like yours is shifted later into the day because my bedtime is a lot later than a normal persons bedtime. On your cheat day every 10 days are you having carbs?

    1. Hi Tony! Thank you! Oh yes! I basically eat whatever I want on my cheat days, everything I won’t eat other days, IE: dairy, desserts, wheat, grains, etc. For me that makes it so much easier to not have those things on my non-cheat days. I’m so glad you enjoyed this!

  7. wow great post. I have been wanting to cut my carbs and this post is leading me in the right direction. Thank you so much as I will keep returning for more tips. David
