    Keto, Adkins, misc low carb diets

    Any of you doing one of those low carb diets out there? Sure is a lot of chow to choose from in our environs but I can confirm that most sugar substitutes don't hold up in something like Memphis Meat Rub... I haven't found a way to get that sticky sweet taste the grandkids like on the ribs... and while pork belly burnt ends start with keto friendly, only the butter is low carb enough to survive...honey and my kc style sauces and of course brown sugar make these carb bombs as well as fat bombs... Curious if any of you have adapted our standards to the low carb world...of course my brisket and steaks are

    I don't do keto or anything like that. I like potatoes too much. I just don't like things too sweet. I lean heavily on more savory tomato and vinegar based sauces. I always cut the sugar way back - like to about 1/3 what the recipe calls for. I like it just fine, but certainly not everybody does.

      I’m curious. I know nothing of these diets. But how much sauce/sugar/carbs are you actually gonna eat with a serving or six when consuming the actual BBQ.

      I can’t imagine all that much especially if you sort of lower the sugar/carb ingredients to begin with.

      What about similar flavor profiles? How about great meat with different style sauces?

      anyhow that’s what I’m thinking. There is always a way to make something tasty.

      Kudos and more power to you for choosing to loose some pounds. I am cheering for you.

      I don’t think you can accomplish your mission of removing the sugar and keeping it sweet for the grandkids short of making two separate cooks. North Carolina Sauces are low on sugar. You might try them out for yourself.

        I have successfully made sauces with sugar substitutes. Rubs keep the sugar though.

      I’m doing the keto diet right now to get ready for my 50th reunion, and I just have been using Eastern NC sauce for my ribs. Any sweetness I need I get from Stevia which is listed as being stable to 392F, and a little goes a long way.

        I did Keto and lost 75lbs. I did not worry too much about sauces and rubs etc... But I was maintaining a really low carb count, well below 50. I think as long as you are maintaining a low number a few carbs in you recipes once in awhile won’t take you out of Ketosis.

        Okay, now here’s the information we all know but don’t want to believe. If you take a break for the Holidays, you are going to get the weight back. I am still trying to get back on track from the Holidays, cheat days, oh I deserve a piece of pie,ooh how bout some cake, a little pasta, oh some stuffing and potatoes can’t hurt right?

        I have not gone all the way back to 250, but it wouldn’t take long to get there. I am currently trying to modify my diet so that it is easier to maintain. My wife and I joined a KickBoxing Gym to try and combat Dinasourasitis and hopefully I can get back to 175lbs in the process.

        Dont ever Give Up!

          I lost 65 last year, down to 202 before the holidays. Like you, I slipped back for the holidays. Took me to March to get serious about restarting. Regained a dime, but have maintained the double nickel, and am cool with that.

          The key to restarting is to just pick a day, do it day by day, and put in a full week back on.

        I have been doing Keto as well and have lost about 30 pounds. I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you are eating sugary sauces everyday! I would experiment with different sauces and sugar amount, but once and a while it not going to derail your diet. Good luck!

          Diets are for losers! Kidding aside, I have a buddy who's a sports nutritionist and he boils it down to this: eat less, move more. His take is diets have way to many pitfalls and traps. The best shape in my life is when I follow this simple rule, and the opposite is true when I don't. Good luck, but there's always room for pie......

            Eat less, move more. Pretty much what has been recommended to millions of people who subsequently failed to lose weight and keep it off. Kudos to those who do, but the implication is that all you need to do to be thin is have some self-control and a little exercise. I just don't think that is broadly realistic.

            fracmeister while that may be an overly broad statement, it is the basis for a good conditioning program/lifestyle. The best shape of my life was when I followed that principle and the parameters of well-balanced nutrition. It sure felt good to be able to bench press 150% of my own weight, but it was mindset that helped me succeed. It's the stuff between the ears that gets us there, but I forgot where I left a great deal of it.

          CaptainMike I'm with you and others weight loss comes from eating less and moving more. Certainly you have to watch what you eat, however, you need to watch how much or how little. I'm trying minimize my carbs, however, I don't worry about rubs. Not a big sauce guy and I tend to prefer the savory vinegar Carolina sauces. That said, my thinking is the rubs aren't going to give you a ton of carbs. Good luck on your weight loss adventure.

            I am on a low carb diet. It has worked for me. I have not changed the way I cook but have stopped potatoes. Sugar is not good for sure. I see it as a lifestyle change. Just one persons opinion.

              My wife and I are on the "mostly Paleo" diet. She's pre-diabetic, so after researching the Mayo clinic's A1C diet, determined it was mostly Paleo with dairy and the occasional (maybe once a week or so) carbs.

              We use honey (raw unrefined) as our primary sweetener now. I drizzle it over the ribs, and use rubs (or make my own) that have very little sugar in them. Turns out pretty well.

                I'm losing weight slowly on the Hobbit Diet - I need to write this up and publish it.

                There's nothing processed in it. The herbs are fresh, and I love the way it organizes my day:

                Breakfast
                Second Breakfast
                Brunch
                Lunch
                Supper
                Dinner
                Leftovers

                Get up, repeat.
