Bunless burgers

I’ve been working with my doctor on my weight loss, and I asked her which diet was best. I’m at the point where I know what has worked for me in the past, and I know what I enjoy, but nothing seems to work anymore. I’ve tried calorie restriction, low carb, primal/paleo, Noom, Weight Watchers, working with a personal trainer… I’m much more active than I was a year ago.

But my weight hasn’t budged. My doctor says it’s partially because of my age, but likely that it’s mostly because with my very high stress-level job, I set my cortisol and insulin levels very high. I gave them a new normal.

She suggested intermittent fasting, which I am doing. But I wasn’t sure which way to eat. She told me, “The best diet is the one you’ll stick to.” So low carb it is!

I decided to make bunless burgers- sliders, really. I got good quality beef and other ingredients and went to work.

Yes, they were delicious! But DANG! This is one of the messiest things to eat, ever! I tried with my hands- messy. I used a fork and knife- not easy and still messy. I ended up going back to just hands.

I did something similar with fajitas recently. I put the filling in a half-cooked bell pepper. It was very tasty, but the filling just slid right out.

I probably won’t do either of those two options again. I don’t mind eating with my hands, but perhaps not if the juice is traveling up my arms to my elbows. I’ll keep looking for good options… the search certainly is entertaining and, best of all, yummy!

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
