I am now one of ‘those’ people. You know the type. The way up here on my pedestal type.
I cook meals for my dog. I used to tease those people. I used to say they had too much time on their hands (or no job/kids) but as I sit here, I eat humble pie. I am now among them.
Just in case anyone is wondering, it is a PAIN. My dog eats a lot and I spend a lot of time cooking for her. Why do I mention this on my blog about low carb eating? My dog has lost 20 pounds in a few months simply by feeding her high quality actual food, not processed food from a bag.
My dog is old and she started getting sick and vomiting after meals. I tried changing her food a couple times but it wasn’t working. She’s an old Rottweiler (10+) and they don’t often live too long so her getting sick was worrisome. Before bringing her to the vet, I thought I’d try cooking her some chicken, veggies and rice. Guess what, no more vomiting, and despite ZERO exercise, she went from almost 130 pounds down to less than 110.
This goes to show that the old saying is true, ‘abs are made in the kitchen, you can’t out exercise a bad diet…’.
She gets 2 or 2.5 cups of boiled chicken, carrots/green beans/pees, and rice twice per day. I cook the chicken from frozen in my crockpot and use minute rice. I sometimes use canned veggies, but fresh if possible. Like I said before, it is a pain. I will continue however, for as long as she has left.
