(my notes are at the bottom of the page, in the reviews).

It was awesome.

I'm also down almost 9 pounds since I started low carb on June 26!


Wow, Tracie, I am a big croque monsieur fan (also croque madame - I thought that was made with turkey but I suppose I am wrong) - anyway this recipe sounds lovely. Can you make the pancakes without the psyllium husk or is it really necessary?? I don't want to invest in lots of different ingredients if its not that important. Either way, I am going to give it a whirl !!!

I haven't tried without the psyllium husk, but I don't think you should worry about psylium. it's a very safe ingredient, very common. It's the active ingredient in things like metamucil. It's seriously just plant fiber. it bulks up the pancakes and gives them a great texture. It's been around a long, long time and is safe and natural.

If you really don't want to get the psylium husk powder, I would add something to add fiber -- maybe almond flour, or even a tablespoon or two of ground up oats (which adds carbs, of course).

I've never seen a croque made with turkey, but then I've only seen them in France and they don't eat deli style turkey often in France. They're big into ham. Croque Monsieur in France is ham and cheese, madame adds an egg and croque provencale adds tomato.

This will longish! Hi all, I haven't checked in on the Fastday Forum in like forever. Wolfie from Sweden if anyone remember me.

After I did 5:2 and lost 17kg, I had the most terrible year when I lost not only my two Rhodesian Ridgeback broads but my BFF too. Lost all will/power to fast and gained it all again. An ordinary visit to my GIP showed slightly elevated blood sugar level and that needed to be taken care. I thought going back on 5:2 but a friend suggested LCHF instead. So just before Christmas 2016 I started and a week later The DH joined. And here is the unfair part, while I lost 8kg in four weeks and then got stuck, he lost between 15-20 kg and now look like a scare crow :shock:

Getting stuck on these 8 kg even though I did 16:8 on LCHF was disheartened (right word?) and during the just finished 4 week vacation I have splurged a bit, but not on potatoes, rice or pasta. Some bread though and some wine, a bit of fruits and some ready made deserts. Interesting though, from this fancy way I only gained 0.5kg.

But as of today I will combine all the three: 5:2 on LCHF Monday and Wednesday and LCHF 16:8 the rest of the days. Hopefully my "sinful" weeks with help to kick-start some more loss of weight, otherwise I'm not sure what to do. Goin back on potatoes etc is a no-no. I do have two issues against me: hypothyroid and meds that affects the weight negatively.
:shock:
On the positive side as of today I will never have to work a single day if I don't want to - 2 months vacation and then early retirement :grin:

Hugs around!

Welcome back wolfie!!!!

Well congratulations on the early retirement - that's wonderful!! I'm sorry last year was so hard for you and I certainly understand how that kind of stress can make one fall off the wagon. I think you have an excellent plan for getting back on track again though.

how was your first fast day in a while?

First day was ok, drank a looooot o water. Second today but that is a bit harder, kind of gastroenteritis sensation. But I know from experience that it's only to persevere ;)
