Shaw's Supermarket Chat Thread

This thread is being created for the OT chat that goes into the Shaw's Deals thread. We are a chatty bunch and have become an extended family. I heart the OT chat, but agree that sometimes we just want to read about the deals. So hopefully this thread will help decrease the OT in the deals thread and we all have a place to chat with each other.

That's because those previews are from areas with high population density. Boston globe equivalent for us. We don't have those markets to draw the coupon inserts they do. It's why I hate previews without locationality. I can give a preview for the crap Portsmouth paper but it's junk compared to every other in the area.

Wondering if the girls doing the low carb diets started up again, and how it's going if so? Noungning and Jenny I think? Looking to do something, wondering what you eat for meals and snacks? Looking for ideas Smilie Since having the baby things have been crazy. Losing all the baby weight, plus some, right after having her, then gaining some back a few months later has been sucky Frown We have been purging the freezers of junky stuff though, not bringing to much more in the house, that we'll eat at least, it's a start!
I just started back on low carb today! There are lots of foods you can eat that will keep you from getting bored and lots of low carb snacks too. If you like fried chicken, don't fear, you can still have it, just use crunched up pork rinds as breading.

My on the go snacks include hard boiled eggs, olives, almonds, string cheese, meat sticks, pickles etc. I'm such a carnivore that low carb agrees with me. The one thing I always battle when i go back low carb is I get really bad headaches. I call it carb withdrawl. I think the official term is "low carb flu". I found that when I start back up low carbing it, instead of going cold turkey, if I slowly over a few days reduce my carbs, it isn't as bad. Also drink LOTS of water those first few days!!!! It will help stave off the headaches if you do get them - not everyone does.

Induction says you can't have any refined sugars, but I've tried many different artificial and natural sweeteners and can't find a single one that I like. One teaspoon of sugar is 4 carbs and a tablespoon of heavy cream is less than one carb. So I choose to use up some of my carbs for my daily cup of coffee!!

If I'm out and about, and need a quick low carb meal, 2 mcdoubles from the dollar menu, remove the bun and viola!

Looking to enjoy ice cream night with the fam?? Use frozen whipped cream for yourself instead (just don't eat the whole tub, 1/2 cup is good). I actually prefer it over ice cream.

Salads are awesome low carb meals! Lettuce is very low carb (1 cup is 1/2 carb), top with eggs, meat, black olives, walnuts, etc and use ranch dressing. Ranch has very low carbs!

Hope these tips help and any questions feel free to ask!!

Miss y'all!!!

Stevia is pretty good for a sugar; it is pricey though but very much worthwhile if you can pay the premium.

Also, sorbet is a good alternative to ice cream. Sure, it is expensive, but it is made with better quality ingredients than your mainstream brands (such as Hood, Friendly's, etc.). A good deal is TJ's mango sorbet at $4.49/qt everyday. Otherwise, you're looking at least $3.49/pint in a conventional store; possibly $3 or slightly lower if on sale a pint.

Still don't know what I am going to do Frown I pulled out an old Atkins diet booklet, for reference. How many carbs do you guys limit yourselves to in a day? I have had myfitnesspal on my Google for a while, but haven't used it yet. Definitely need to start paying better attention to what I'm eating. Thanks for the ideas Jenny, I do love a nice big salad for a meal, I eat them often. Just need to not use the croutons Smilie

My sister just asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding.... I'm not a dress person at all!! But now I have a second reason to start something soon!

Thanks for all the ideas.

When I'm dead serious, I stay around 20-30 grams of net carbs per day. Things I suffer from the first couple of weeks when I'm low carb: 1) Carb withdrawal 2) sometimes headaches 3) constantly thirsty 4) cranky! 5) cannot not go to bathroom easily LMAO drinking coffee helps... 6) you will be running to the bathroom for peeing no problem though! 7) can get expensive but manageable, cooking from scratch does end up being pretty cheap compared to eating out. laugh out loud 8) oh I will be weak like a welt veggie for the first few weeks as well 9) sleep like I haven't slept for days! laugh out loud but I love sleep so it may be normal for me LMAO

Wormie, for headaches some say chicken soup broth is good because it has salt and I guess salt helps with headaches? Dontknow

I was reading the Atkins info I had and it said to start the first two weeks with 20 net carbs. Then to slowly bump it up. Do you set a limit to your fat grams and calories or just count the carbs?

Gee, thanks for that list! laugh out loud so much to look forward too! I dont drink too much coffee, unless its full of creamer, so that might not work for me, unless I can force myself.

I think I will take tomorrow and Saturday to read up on more info, make some lists of foods to keep on hand and start on Sunday. We have breakfast with Santa on Saturday, and we get the yummiest donuts ever! Also I make a killer fruit bowl Smilie major no no's for low carb! I'm a little pumped to try it, really hope to see some quick results and hope I can stick to it.

I told dh tonight I want an elliptical machine, we have a treadmill, but that gets boring. Gotta check out some sales, probably smarter to wait until after the new year though. I have some kettle bells, I like those over regular weights. Just thinking about exercise makes me tired!

I'm a little pumped to try it, really hope to see some quick results and hope I can stick to it.

I told dh tonight I want an elliptical machine, we have a treadmill, but that gets boring. Gotta check out some sales, probably smarter to wait until after the new year though. I have some kettle bells, I like those over regular weights. Just thinking about exercise makes me tired!
laugh out loud Well the low carb diet I was on was more like the induction phase of atkins forever, so you don't reintroduce more carbs, just stick with that amount forever. laugh out loud

When I did atkins about 8 years ago, I didn't realize that I was supposed to count net carbs so was acing most of the stuff I ate. laugh out loud I did lose 30 that time... and when I did it last year, I also lost 30. laugh out loud Unfortunately it wasn't a total of 60 from then and now haha... I gained back weight because I stopped atkins. But it took years to gain it all again. Then 7 years later, I read more about the other low carb and how I should be eating more fatty stuff to keep full because eating just carrots and ranch dip isn't going to cut it!

Depending on how you set your goal, my goal was at 65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs per day. I will have to always do the math that my carbs are minus fiber to get the 5% Smilie You can set this up on myfitnesspal >goals>change goals> I use manual to set the percentage, but you can do the recommended also and fill in your weight you wish to lose etc and it'd change your cal intake recommendation per day.

laugh out loud Whatever diet you choose to take on, it takes time to adjust and get used to. Whether it's the typical Standard American Diet, the Atkins, WW... you'll have to get used to the portions, counting cals, etc. I think it's all in your will to keep going. I need to get that will back for myself. With everything going on right now, it's tough. laugh out loud I have a presentation coming up and a final due the following week. EEK!

MMo3, you can use heavy cream. It is less than 1 carb per serving. That's what I use because I'm the same way with coffee. I also found with myself (sorry if TMI), if I eat fried eggs, it helps with #2. something about the olive oil I think.

I usually stay around 20g. You can stay on the induction period for as long as you need, but not recommended for extremely long term.

I don't count calories or fat, just carbs. I don't really eat a lot anyways and have to force myself to eat enough each day.
