Low carb pescatarian or plant diet.

I don't really like egg, so I never eat it - I've only had it like once this year.
I don't really care for cheese either
I'm not a breakfast person - I normally eat my first meal at around 12
I've recently discovered that pasta makes me put on soooo much weight, even more than rice - I'm cutting it out completely

So far I'm stuck on beans (Kidney, black beans, chickpeas) with plantain and veg and salmon and sweet potato with veg - it's getting very boring now though.

Please also recommend snacks as well.

OP I feel like you’re my twin. I’ve essentially started a pescatarian diet and I need to lost my belly fat ASAP. So I’m definetly sitting in this thread lol.

One super quick meal I do, is simply sauté some mushrooms, shrimp, and spinach. I add pepper, salt, and bouillon (I like knorr). That might be boring though.

Well, you eliminated every suggestion I could give lol. I am pescatarian aswell, but that is as far as my limitations go.
You’re already eliminating carbs, which most meals consists of. The only thing I can recommend you is smoothies (oat milk + optional protein powder + fruits) and salads (whatever you can find and like, throw in there).

Not at all. This sounds so good and I LOVE shrimp. I'm updating my shopping list for next week.

I did have success on my one meal a day diet (my friends noticed how much weight I had lost on my arms etc. However now that I'm on doing a year abroad, it is so hard to stay consistent with my diet.

I’m sorta on the same diet right now so I’ll let you know what I’ve been into food wise lately. So for breakfast I usually fast until 12 and then I’ll do miso soup with a small side of protein (fish or chicken), lunch is usually a veggie wrap with sautéed onions, mushrooms, peppers and vegan cheese. Then for dinner I’ll do salad with a lot of veggies and a little fruit with salmon or chicken as a side. For a snack I’ll make a smoothie, homemade popsicles or a keto peanut butter bar and if I want something savory I’ll make kale chips. It’s such an easy meal plan and I’ve already lost 10 lbs since starting back in the beginning of March

My husband makes the best lentil salad, and it goes really well with seafood (especially salmon). In a bowl toss cooked brown lentils, chopped cherry tomatoes, chopped red onion, kalamata olives, chopped flat leaf parsley, chopped cucumber, and dress with a bit of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Lemon juice and olive oil works well as a dressing, too. And the whole thing is even better if you add some feta.

He usually makes a big batch and we eat it for a few days with different proteins.

Good luck on your diets, ladies!

Sounds perfect. I'm trying to loose 22 pounds (10kg - possibly even 15) before July. If I start now I think I can do it.

Your food choices sound so good, I can't believe I forgot about wraps (can I ask what bread do you use for the wrap?)

Thank you x

Yay! I’m glad you liked my suggestions!! You can absolutely lose that by July. I use Tumaros whole wheat carb wise tortillas for my wraps. They’re keto friendly and only about 60 calories

Sis, the starchy carbs in potatoes, plantain, and beans are the worst carbs around!

If you’re pescatarian try some recipes for pan-seared scallops and grilled shrimp. Both have zero carbs and can be cooked in a variety of versatile ways. Those are my low-carb go-tos.

I'm going to share my original recipe for a low-carb meal. You can just skip the sausage to fit more into your diet:

"My Shirataki Jambalaya. The taste of jambalaya without the carbs and it's good for your gut health.

Shirataki Jambalaya (I used 4 bags of pasta zero spaghetti): with shrimp, andouille sausage, (red, yellow, and orange) bell peppers (one of each), green and yellow/sweet onions (I used half a yellow onion), celery (about 3-4 sticks, chopped), one can of diced tomatoes (I prefer the fire roasted with garlic), and one spoonful of minced garlic along with a host of seasonings like: Tony's creole seasoning, oregano, garlic powder, Himalayan salt, black pepper, chili powder, sage, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, paprika, basil leaves, cayenne pepper, cumin, onion powder, one can of chicken broth, and a dash of olive oil (optional) with a tablespoon or so of sriracha sauce. Didn't measure any of the seasonings. Everything is to taste. Eyeball it and let the ancestors guide you.

Ingredients:

1 bag of deveined, peeled, tail-off medium or small cooked or uncooked shrimp.

1 bag of andouille sausage. (chop them up)

1 can of chicken broth

1 can of diced tomatoes (fire roasted)

4 bags of Shirataki Pasta Zero/Miracle Noodles (Spaghetti style)

3 bell peppers (preferably one of each: red, yellow, orange). (chop them up)

Half of a yellow/sweet onion (mince it)

Green onions (as much as you like) (chop them)

3-4 sticks of celery (chopped)

Spoonful of minced garlic

Some olive oil (mostly for cooking sausage)

Tablespoon of Sriracha sauce

Various seasonings (see above)

I fix the noodles and my jambalaya separately. I prepared my jambalaya mixture (cook the sausage first, drain the excess oil, put back in the same pot, toss in all the vegetables and seasonings, broth, and a dash of olive oil into one pot and bring that to a boil. Then add your shrimp and let that cook. No simmer since there's no rice, so it's more soupy than regular jambalaya), and when that's done, I poured it over my noodles after I've dried the noodles out as much as I could.

It helps to cut your noodles before drying them out. Makes for easier distribution later when it's time to eat."

I'm on a pescatarian diet too, OP. When I get tired of seafood I'll throw a vegan salad together. Romaine lettuce, red onions, chickpeas, avocados with lime juice drizzled on top, corn, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, tortilla strips and balsamic dressing. If I want a taco salad I'll just replace the cucumbers and chickpeas with black beans and a little bit of vegan mozzarella cheese.

Sometimes I'll eat a Beyond burger wrapped in romaine lettuce topped with avocados and mushrooms sautéed with coconut aminos.

You can make vegan or vegetarian Tex-Mex, soups, chili, pizza, vegetable stir fry with rice or noodles, smoothies, salads. You can be creative and mix/match ingredients (cauliflower rice or pizza crust to cut carbs, different types of smoothies, etc.)

Snacks: popcorn, fruit with almond butter, vegetables with ranch dip, etc.

Pinterest has a lot of good recipes, if you can’t think of any. These are basically quick meals lol

I started including fresh salsa as a snack. Started topping my fish with it and even added it as part of my rice cauliflower.

those are definitely not the *worst* carbs compared to everything else lol. But I do agree if you're eating all those things you're deff not on a low carb diet. I had to remove all of those except for sweet potatoes and even that was in careful moderation.

Instead of thinking of it as low carb, try thinking of high fiber (net carbs = carbs (g) minus fiber (g). incorporate a low more dark green veggies and some berries.

Lol I only said that speaking anecdotally! Starchy carbs are what make me gain weight really quickly.

Before I moved into the low carb eating pattern that I'm into now, I called myself going plant-based for about 6 months and I ended up gaining more weight than I ever have in my life.

I was so confused because everyone makes it seem like veganism/plant-based is the holy grail so I'm like "why am I eating plant based but still gaining weight?" "why am I eating 900 calories per day but still gaining weight?" and then upon further research, I realized it was because once I went plant-based I ended up eating more carbs than I usually would.

My plant-based diet was filled with rice, beans, baked potatoes, lots of bread, grains, etc. and come to find out, my body doesn't tolerate those well :(
