Great Late Night Snack

I was staying up until my wife came home and during that time I was getting hungry. So I was looking to have a low carb snack that tasted great and was simple. I was looking in the refrigerator and found some mushrooms. So I sautéed the mushrooms with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. It was excellent! The key of making good mushrooms is to cook them till they are moist and soft in the middle. Oh, this dish is very low in calories and carbs. I made enough to fill 1.5 cups.

Low Carb or No Carb?

For the last week and a half, I have been experimenting with going no carb. Within that time I have lost over 6 pounds. One thing that I have found is when I ate some carbs this last weekend, I gained a lot of weight....I was also eating till I was full all of the time. I mean I was just shoveling it in. But now it is Thursday and I am down to 234 when I was 241 before I started. I am trying to go more than one week straight through so wish me luck and I hope I can see the results that some of my friends are seeing with this. They have lost about 30 pounds per month.

Just to let you know, I have always been against low or no carb diets. Fruits and some starches are just to good for you to pass up. I plan on going back on my normal diet once I hit a certain weight. I will keep you posted.
