  • Quote from Bamby: “woops 1 more question.... does anyone have the chobini fat free greek yoghurt? it has 17grms protein per tub. i havent been having it as a snack but i do put a sppon full of it with my protein pancake” I am not following Bodytrim anymore (didnt suit my lifestyle) but I still have access to the BT website. This is in their guidelines regarding Protein Bars Carbohydrates – should be 10g or less per 100g Protein- should be 30g or more per 100g Fat- there are no guidelines on fat …

  • Been seeing a specialist for my asthma for a while, she seems to think that I am sensitive to Salicylates. It makes alot of sense because I've never been able to tolerate Asprin or Citrus Fruits without getting asthma type reactions. So I've been doing some research mainly through the Fed Up website which has got some fantastic info. Seems that there is alot of things on the high salicylate list that I eat and rely on while following Bodytrim (packaged ham, tomato, capsicum, breath mints amongst…

  • Quote from lil_weiron: “1 serve of fruit is okay, not sure about yoghurt as originally BT said to avoid dairy if possible, or limit it at least.. anyone else know the answer to this coz id like to know too? Also dont forget to have ur serve of protein at breakfast, not just fruit by itself..” This is a direct excerpt from the Bodytrim forum - Yoghurt is not recommended as a stand alone protein source, due to the carbohydrate content -You may have yoghurt however as a starchy carbohydrate portion…

  • Quote from Sherrie: “What I mean is say you had an option of toast with eggs and bacon or beans with eggs and bacon. Considering beans are carby anyway wouldn't it be a better choice? it certainly would be nutritionally.” Ah ha I get it Sherrie sorry! I'm not sure about substituting the beans for the toast, I guess like you say it makes sense nutrionally but probably according to BT "rules" they would say that it would be more protein serve than you're supposed to have so they would say for you …

  • Quote from Sherrie: “What if you wanted to have them in place of your carb serve? can you do that?” I think that if they're considered a protein source then there is no point in having them as your carb serve instead, you would just have to add extra protein to it to be considered a meal in BT standards. That's my interpretation of it anyway! I have used the tinned cannelini beans before to make a Chocolate Brownie, I classed it as a protein serve (maybe I was blinded by chocolate though!)

  • The info in the original BT Handbook (borrowed a few years back from a friend) says that Lentils, Chickpeas & Dried Beans (kidney beans, black beans etc) are an acceptable source of protein. Although these vegetarian protein food options have a carb component they are to be viewed as protein food options and used accordingly (eg 50g of lentils for a female snack).

  • Quote from Chann: “Does anyone know when jelly cheesecakes are ok to eat on BT? :)” Jelly cheesecakes are fine for PO snacks, as long as the jelly is diet jelly then it has minimal carbs in it. Honkin I love the look of the coleslaw, Vietnamese cooking really floats my boat with all those lovely fresh ingredients. Only 1 question though on your Laarb Gai, you're using rice in it so this would only be something you could eat at breakfast time.

  • Michelle - Yes I would think that's right - 50g of mince & 50g of beans.

  • Quote from Jenk: “Yes Im back again 3rd or 4th time lucky?? Ive lost count. But i was wondering if i can have canned kidney beans on BT? I fancy making chilli and this would be a good way to bulk it out a littl along with mushrooms. Thanks Jenk” This is what it says in my old copied version of the BT book: Lentils, Chickpeas, Dried Beans (kidney beans, black beans etc). Although these vegetarian protein food options have a carb content, they are to be viewd as protein food options and used accor…

  • I dont see why not, I use them all the time. The only "bad" thing in there is cocoa and it's such a small amount over the whole lot that I dont think it would make much difference. They work out to be about 58g if you make 6 so slightly over the 50g.

  • Here are a few I had saved in my BT Cookbook, originally from the BT site I think. Chicken and vegetable soup Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Serves: 2 Ingredients 1 chicken breast 2 cups chicken stock 1 carrot, roughly chopped 1 onion, roughly chopped 1 clove garlic, crushed 1 courgette, roughly chopped Salt and pepper to taste Method In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken stock to boil. Roughly chop the carrot, onion and courgette and crush the garlic. Thinly slice the chicken. Ad…

    This is the recipe for Fluffy Stuff: FLUFFY STUFF (snack) Beat two eggs whites to peaks. Add in two-three tablespoons of chocolate or other flavoured protein powder (and sweetener according to taste).

  • Denmc - someone may correct me but I think the full fat versions of the Cottage & Ricotta Cheese are actually better because they have less carbs/sugar in them. It's hard to get out of the mind set of low fat food when you've been so used to it, but when you are eating less carbs you can tolerate a little more fat in your diet.

  • Here are a few cookies recipes I found - have tried a version of the 30 second cookie with vanilla protein powder, think the choc version would be nice. 30 SECOND COCOA COOKIE - Makes 1 1 teaspoon butter or coconut oil 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 1/6 cup * 1 teaspoon cocoa 2 teaspoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda ** Water, as needed In a small microwaveable bowl, heat the butter in the microwave about 20 seconds or until melted. Skip this step if using coconut oil. If…

    Was it this one? Bodytrim 3 day Protein Only Detox -Help! Or maybe this one? Bodytrim in a nut shell Otherwise I had a friend send me a little spiel about preparing for the detox days which goes a little like this: My biggest suggestion for detox is to have ALL your food ready. If you can, head to the supermarket the day before and buy 1 roasted chicken 2 x 500 gms of mince, beef or chicken or lamb ( meatballs) 1 x 1kg Ricotta cheese, Woolworths have it in a 1 kg blue basket in plastic with the …

  • Here are some recipes I've found that should be BT compliant. I've tried the Black Bean Brownies, I couldnt find Black Beans so I used Cannelini beans instead and they turned out fine. I would recommend blitzing the beans first until smooth and then add everything in. Black Bean Brownies1 x 400g can black beans, rinsed and drained 3 eggs 1/2 cup xylitol 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 3 Tablespoons of vegetable oil Dash of salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Blend all ingredients in a foodprocessor…

  • So I made the Black Bean Brownie Recipe I posted a few days back, here's my report on them. I couldn't find Black Beans in my Woolies so I decided to use Cannelini Beans instead. I threw everything in the food processor and let it whiz for about 1 minute. In hindsight, probably should have whizzed the beans first to make them totally smooth and then added in everything else. I often find that I dont need the full amount of sweetener in recipes, but with these I did as it helps cover up the sligh…

  • I have been investigating some new recipes for BT (always a dangerous thing!) and come across some interesting options. These recipes use legumes as a protein source instead of or as well as ricotta or eggs etc. This is one recipe that I found on the BT forum and thought it was rather interesting: Black Bean Brownies 1 x 400g can black beans, rinsed and drained 3 eggs 1/2 cup xylitol 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 3 Tablespoons of vegetable oil Dash of salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Blend all…
