Leftover Thursday – Dr. Westman’s No Sugar No Starch Diet – Week 2 | Day 4
Fluffy Chix Cook prepares Day 11, or Week 2|Day 4 of Dr. Westman’s and Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic’s No Sugar No Starch Page 4 Meal Plan, featuring low carb leftovers. Today is the day to clean out any servings and portions of meals stored in the fridge or in DS9 (Deep Space 9 aka the chest freezer). Let’s start with a low carb hearty breakfast BOB. Lunch is a salad we call Po’k Salad Annie after the song from Elvis, although here, “Po’k” stands for “pork,” not a type of weed. Dinner is leftover Great Steak, Roasted Mashed Cauliflower and a side salad. There’s even room for dessert, sugar free gelatin. Keto, gluten free, low carb contented, bliss. It’s is also VERY diabetic friendly. Who would be hungry on this meal plan? The full Page 4 friendly day rings in at 20g total, non-netted carbs.
Week 2 | Day 4 of Dr. Westman’s No Sugar No Starch Diet begins today. Week 2 is going easy with little to no hunger. So funny what a difference a day makes. Yesterday I had zero, zippo, nada, no hunger! I had to make myself eat when I did finally stop and eat and was full after a few bites. Sadly, I did not stop when hunger was satisfied. If I have one issue, it’s that. I WANT to have a FULL tummy. Gah. Is that so wrong?? Apparently it is and it screws up our entire hunger, repletion feedback loop and throws important hunger hormones like leptin and ghrelin out of kilter. Dammit Janet!
Today I wake up and my tummy thinks my throat’s been cut. And it wants food, “FFFFFEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDD me, Seymour!” LOL. So I fed it. I fed it off meal-plan, but still on diet-plan. I was planning to eat the BOB for breakfast. I really was, but ended up eating fried eggs in bacon grease with bacon, avocado and a couple of grape tomatoes, instead. Funny enough, last night I had the best night sleep I’ve had in months. I slept almost 6 hours without waking…a minor miracle! Maybe that had something to do with hunger? Unfortunately, the sleep did not correlate with a whoosh on the scale, it’s still firmly sitting at the (-)1 lb for the week. That’s ok, though. I slept!
So enjoy today’s menu. Some days, even Fluffy Chix eat straight-up leftovers, just as they looked the first time around! This is one of those liberating days! Enjoy the convenience and get on with your life!

GOALS FOR WEEK 2:
- Begin taking advantage of the satiety offered by a ketogenic diet
- Eat only when hungry and only until hunger is assuaged. Do not eat until full.
- Begin dialing back and finding my personal sweet spot.
- Keep fats high.

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 value is the more accurate figure. Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience!
