Barbecue Chicken Quarters – Dr. Westman No Sugar No Starch Diet
Fluffy Chix Cook serves a Dr. Westman’s and Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic’s No Sugar No Starch Page 4 Meal Plan featuring a big, hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs and sausage. Big breakfasts should never be “off the table” when they are low carb and keto, too: fried eggs in bacon drippings, bacon, sausage a zucchini curl with plenty of hot coffee with cream. Lunch is a simple Salmon Salad Cucumber Boat and Deviled Eggs. Dinner is the full deal! Romaine and grape tomatoes in Creamy Ranch, Barbecued Chicken Quarters with buttered broccoli. There’s even room for dessert, sugar free gelatin with Whipped Cream! Who would be hungry on this meal plan? The full Page 4 friendly day rings in at 20g total, non-netted carbs.
I’m starting Dr. Westman’s Page 4 No Sugar No Starch Diet today. It will be strict, but I’m actually looking forward to it. I hope to be able to keep up with the daily menu plans. The idea is that until I know I’m firmly in ketosis, I will try to eat three meals a day and not worry about any quantities other than the carbs (non-netted total carbs). I’ve made some proposed WEEK 1 daily menus and will try to follow them. The included nutritional totals are for anyone who can’t resist looking at totals. It’s a LOT of food-I know I won’t be hungry. I remind myself…crap, keep your eyes up, don’t LOOK at the calories!
Find the list of Page 4 friendly foods in Dr. Westman’s publication. Cheap at amazon.com, along with his instructions.

My Goals For Week 1:
1. Keep weekday meal prep to a minimum.
[Try to prep ahead (which I already missed cuz I didn’t cook on Sunday like I should). Will try to get a couple of hours in the kitchen today to bust a move with make-ahead recipes.]
2. Keep recipes super simple and 1-2 servings only.
3. Eat ONLY until hunger is satisfied and NOT until full!
(Even though the portion I computed and allowed myself is reasonable, I will try to follow my hunger and quit eating at the first sign of being full! If I’m not hungry, I will not eat and will skip the meal. So the menu below represents the maximum of what would be consumed today.)

You may notice a discrepancy when adding the total carbs shown by line-item. Do not be overly concerned. MasterCook 9 rounds numbers, so when the individual recipes are combined in a daily meal, the total is calculated to include decimals points. This may result in a +/- difference of 1-2 g of carbs. The Daily Total falue is the more accurate figure. Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience!
