OMG I hate whey protein pancakes. I just made them and I ate them even though I wasn’t really prepared- hell, how can you be prepared to eat something that tastes like cardboard with a saccharine aftertaste?
I made them because I’m fat! I am fat because I think I have some confused genes. I have no idea whether I developed them over life, or if I was born with them, but I’m not going to accept thin people telling me I’m fat because I eat too much! IT isn’t true. I’m fat because my body has a tendency to build fat when I should be using food as fuel.
I’ve gone to my doctor and I’ve been told I need to lose weight and I try! Despite my best intentions the weight piles on. This is beyond frustrating and I’m really tired of being ashamed of my weight! I eat because I’m hungry and I’m afraid my body is signalling me that it’s hungrier than other people’s but it’s because of the way my body handles sugar spikes and insulin. It isn’t because I’m a slob! It isn’t because I’m lazy. I’m fat because my body doesn’t handle eating the way it should.
So my question is how can I fix it? The Paleo diet or the Atkins diet, or some low carb diets seem to be one answer. People who are eating a high protein diet lose fat and gain energy when they are prone to gaining excessive weight which can ultimately lead to diseases like heart disease and diabetes!
I found a recipe for pancakes that used whey protein. I thought, hey, I have some of that. So I put a couple of scoops in a bowl and added an egg and some water and some baking soda and vanilla and I poured it onto my griddle.
They didn’t rise. They bubbled and stuck to the griddle. I tore them off with my spatula and I added butter and a bit of wholesome maple syrup.
It was like eating those cardboard ice cream cones- but add a lousy aftertaste! I forced my way through 2 of them but I really couldn’t eat the rest. ( it made 4 2 inch pseudo-pancakes) Maybe that is what helps people on high protein diets lose weight?! The food sucks!
Honestly though, it is a couple of hours after that slightly unpleasant breakfast treat and I’m not at all hungry. Which might be how I’m supposed to feel after eating. On the other hand it might be how one feels with undigested whey protein in their stomach.
I’ll try to keep up the hard work and I’ll let you know how it goes.
Wish me luck
