Low-carb diet

Low-carb diet!
I have been on a low-carb diet for about a month now. I have Been taking all kinds of vitamin so that I don't miss out on nutrients. I have been drinking almost a gallon of water a day.

Yesterday, didn't feel so well. So, I decide to have a little bit of carbs. I had just a half of a pita. This morning my stomach is growling and I don't feel so well. I feel like my body is rejecting the grains now!

Drinking my water

It's baby steps right? Not eating (trying) the best but drinking my water. My cucumber strawberry water. Taste best on second day. I have two water jugs to alternate

Hasn't been a lot of activity here lately...

I propose we all join together to post some healthy low fat menu ideas. I'm sure we all gained a few extra pounds during the holidays. I came in here to look for low cal recipes and thought - Woah...where is everybody.

Healthy liver. I need low, low fat recipes pronto.

I was just diagnosed with NASH-nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, which is to say I have non alcoholic fatty liver disease. They don't know HOW I have this. People that get it are usually obese, or have high triglyerides, high cholesterol levels, or are diabetic, or eat a high fat, high sugar diet. It can also be caused by medications and environmental properties.

I am none of them, except my anti-seizure meds CAN cause liver damage in the long run. But they don't think my liver would be as bad as it is with just the meds as a reason. So, we're all quite confused. The down low is I am now on a 40 gram of fat allowed diet. That includes good fat like advocado, nuts, seeds, etc. I usually eat a bowl of healthy cereal w/ almond milk, unsweeetened, then I have a sandwich later, made with a very low fat pita bread pocket. I put in it: Lean slices of turkey, 1 slice reduced fat swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and 1 tbsp lite miracle whip. Then later, a salad with 3 oz chicken breat strips, veggies and fat free dressing. I also have a lot of fruit. I have cut back on cream in my coffee, ice cream, italian subs, fatty sauces, etc. But, I'm not losing any weight yet, and they said the only way they have proof to stop and possibly reverse this disease is to lose a significant amt of weight. In my case they're saying 50 lbs. That would put me at 130 lbs. I do have low fat recipes, but most are made with some kind of sauce or beans or nuts or seeds, etc. I need serious help here folks!! I truly want and need some low fat recipes that taste GOOD too. Impossible?? Please tell me no, lol. So, if any of you can be of help, please let me know.If this disease isn't stopped, the outcome isn't good at all. They're saying, eventually it will totally ruin my liver and that a liver transplant will be the only way to survive. I'm only 51 and I would like to live a bit longer, God permitting!! Thanks for any help you can give me, in advance:-)
