"My 600-lb Life" inspired keto diet food swaps for egg rolls

One of the most laughed-at folks on "My 600-lb Life" is James K and his "regg rolls." People (NOT me) find it hilarious that this overweight man lays in bed demanding them. I heard the meme so often that I thought Regg Rolls was a restaurant chain down south. Come to find out, he just meant egg rolls. Well, no one's laughing now because poor James K. lost his battle with obesity and passed away. 

This episode of "My 600-lb Life" got me thinking about how cravings derail weight loss. But they don't need to. James K. could have egg rolls and still lose weight. Even Dr. Now's gastric bypass diet would have approved. You just need to make simple keto diet food swaps and your egg rolls will kick obesity butt. 

The secret to how I lost 100 pounds with gastric bypass was to find diet food swaps for favorite foods. To satisfy cravings and lose weight, identify what you're craving about favorite foods. I'm guessing "My 600-lb Life" James K hankered for the filling in egg rolls. And that can be made super keto weight loss-friendly by skipping the wonton. Here are diet food swaps for breadless rainbow diet egg rolls. (Rainbow diet helps you lose weight by eating foods from the different color groups). 

In a food processor, grind raw chicken breast to hamburger consistency. Saute in 1 T. coconut oil. Season with Bragg's liquid amino, minced garlic, black pepper and ginger. Shred one carrot, 1 c. napa or celery cabbage, 1 c. purple cabbage, 1/2 each seeded red and yellow pepper and two scallions.  Stir in 1/4 cup chicken bone broth and continue cooking till veggies are tender. Add fresh squeezed lime juice. 

Skip the wonton or if ya just gotta have it, top with a few wonton strips. Remember less bread or breadless equals more weight loss! Sub soy sauce with Bragg's liquid amino. Skip the lurid red candy-sweet and sour sauce. Make a blend of grated ginger and horseradish, apple cider vinegar, lime and pineapple juice and little low sugar ketchup. Horseradish, ginger and vinegar help lose weight because they are gut cleanses with keto fat-burning properties. Rainbow diet vegetables are fat burners too. 

Stay tuned for more on how I lost 100 pounds, plus ways to avoid obesity and gastric bypass.
