Zero Carb Breakfast Ideas

When transitioning to a Zero Carb diet from the standard UK diet, it can sometimes be hard to overcome the thinking that you need to eat three main meals per day consisting of breakfast, lunch and dinner.

With regard to breakfast, it can also be difficult to comprehend that you can eat whatever meat you like at breakfast. We have become so conditioned to having ‘breakfast foods’ such as cereals and toast each morning that the idea of eating a freshly fried rump steak or a couple of crispy roast chicken legs can seem a little odd.

Zero Carb and Surviving Social Situations

One of the biggest worries about turning to a zero carb diet is handling the reaction by your nearest and dearest family members and friends. Most will have been brainwashed by years of so called healthy eating advice and guidance that has demonised fat and red meat.

With plenty of persuasion and a good supply of information, most family and friends will be happy to listen to your reasons for choosing this way of eating. The proof is in the pudding, as the saying goes, so will see the positive changes in your health as you go along and will come to accept and support you eventually.

However, letting your close family and friends know that you are ZC is one thing, but who has the energy, will or determination to explain, argue and defend your way of eating to your work colleagues, friends of friends, people you see at a group, or even family members that you only see once or twice per year for big family gatherings.

From hardcore vegetarian to Recovered Meat Eater

John Nicholson was a hardcore vegetarian for twenty-six long years. So what changed? Well, John began to question his diet and despite being the poster-boy for so called ‘healthy-eating’, he found his health steadily declining until he became really ill.

In his book, The Meat Fix, John tells the story of how 26 years of healthy eating nearly killed him and how his diet of brown rice, lentils, tofu, fruits, vegetables, low fat and low cholesterol veganism actually resulted in some chronic health conditions, including mental and physical exhaustion, chronic IBS, high cholesterol and joint pain.

At his wits end with his poor health, John took a drastic step. He decided to eat meat – lots of meat! Not only was he going against all that the medical media was saying and the current healthy eating diet advice, he had to face up to the fact that eating this way wasn’t going to leave him guilt-free either.

Despite his early reservations, the results were truly spectacular with him reporting positive changes within as little as twenty-four hours of eating meat once again.

What Causes a Heart Attack

I cannot say enough about how much I love Dr Paul Mabry. Not only is he a medical doctor, but he lives and breathes the LCHF lifestyle. He has seen for himself just how eating the right foods can transform your health.

If you are going to make the effort to read anything today, then go and read his story and how he came to this way of eating after many years of gaining weight and suffering terrible health, yet wondering why as a doctor he couldn’t figure out why?

His story is a remarkable one and it just shows you that it is never too late to make positive changes to your diet. You can read his back story and see his before and after pictures here and his blog is a wonderful resource for anyone wanting to know more about healing chronic health conditions through diet.

Zero Carb Chicken Strippers

Here is a quick and easy recipe that the whole family will love, especially kids who like things like McDonald’s chicken nuggets or Chicken Strippers from Domino’s Pizza.

As you know, most chicken nuggets or strippers are coated with batter or breadcrumbs, which are a complete no-no. Instead, these simple and tasty chicken strippers use crushed pork scratchings, or pork rinds as they are called in the US.

These chicken strippers turn out really tasty with a moist chicken centre coated with a crispy coating that adds a lovely crunch. Much tastier than their SUK (Standard UK) comparisons.

Chicken with Cheese and Herb Sauce

This is a very easy recipe to prepare. I would also say it is a very useful dish to serve to family or guests where you don’t need to prepare yourself something separate to eat from everyone else. You could make enough of this to feed everyone and just serve the carb eaters some veggies on the side.

If there is one thing I dislike since becoming a full-on carnivore it is the thought of having to choke down a dry skinless chicken breast. When I used to eat a low fat diet it was almost painful to eat skinless chicken breasts, but we all did it thinking it was the healthy thing to do (how misguided we all were!)
