2/16 Weightloss Wednesday: My Insulin Resistance Has Diminished!

2/16 Weightloss Wednesday: My Insulin Resistance Has Diminished!

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday!  I know it’s actually Thursday but life has been crazy lately and I seem to be a day late and a dollar short on everything.  Such is life I guess.  As of this morning I am at 217.8 lbs which means I am 182.2 lbs down from my heaviest and about a pound lighter than last week.

I am getting to the point where when I lie down my belly actually feels flat and lays lower than my rib cage which has never really been the case before.  It’s weird to be able to see bones in my chest and to actually have a neck.

I decided to test something a little earlier this week and ate a hamburger complete with the bun just to see what would happen.  In the past, this would totally wreck my entire week and I’d gain about 5 lbs but this time?  Not so much.  I had a little spike the next day but I was right back to losing weight 2 days later and ended up a pound down for the week.  What does this mean?  Well I think the main thing I can take from this is that my Insulin Resistance seems to have diminished somewhat.  I am by no means going to add a bunch of carbs back in my diet but it is nice to know that a single piece of bread no longer dooms me to a week of having to totally reset my ketosis and struggle just to get back to zero.

So all in all, a great week and I’m pretty happy with what I’m seeing right now.

How are you doing?  Let me know in the comments.

  • 8 tablespoons of almond flour
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1 egg for dough
  • 1 egg beaten off to the side
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. in a medium sized bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a pan over a low heat, add butter until melted. Then add 2 cups of cheddar jack cheese. Continue stirring cheese until melted and becomes smooth.
  4. Add cheese "batter" into bowl you set aside with your dry ingredients.
  5. Add egg and mix well until you get a nice dough ball formed.
  6. On a dry surface and with a rolling pin, create a 9" x 13" rectangular shape.
  7. With a paring knife, cut out 10 equal rectangles. You will need 5 for the bottom and 5 for the top.
  8. To your base rectangles, add: a ½ teaspoon of sauce, shredded chicken, and then mozzarella cheese. Your dough will be sturdy, so don't afraid to use it!
  9. Place the tops on all of your base rectangles, then crimp the edges together with a fork.
  10. With a pastry brush, brush a light coat of your beaten egg on top.
  11. Bake for approximately 16-18 minutes, or until a beautiful golden brown color.
  12. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then serve!

Before we get into the recipe, there are a few things you need to know about the sauce because that is where you will often find hidden sugars sneak into your recipe.  My current favorite is the DelGrosso line of sauces and can tell you that the Marinara is incredible and has no added sugar.  I have also heard good things about Scarpetta which can be ordered direct from Amazon but haven’t tried it myself.  Of course you can make your own with this Sugar Free Red Pasta Sauce Recipe, just leave out the hamburger meat and dice the veggies super fine.

Also, keep in mind that while these are filled with chicken, you can make them with anything.  Want a different pizza pocket?  Use Pepperoni and a Mozzarella/Cheddar blend.  You want something a little more like a Philly cheese steak?  Throw some shaved beef with peppers, onions and provolone in there.  In other words, go nuts.  The possibilities are endless.
