How I lost 100 pounds dropping the handheld: breadless recipes for weight loss

In today's installment of diet recipes and tips, we're going to explore how I lost 100 pounds by dropping the handhelds. Handheld, once the purview of the digital cadre, has invaded restaurant jargon particularly the pub grub scene. Pizza, burgers, sandwiches, wraps, brats, egg rolls, hotdogs, calzones, subs are now so-named handheld because you can hold them without getting messy. And what makes that possible? A bread-based wrapper of some sort. Which is minty keen for juggling the sammich and remote, or darts, beer and brat. But not if you want to lose weight. All those hyper-carb foods are death to diet. Here are breadless diet food swap recipes for weight loss. 

Let us begin with a lil rationale. So  I watch "My 600-lb Life" which explores morbid obesity and weight loss via gastric bypass. Every, I mean EVERY overweight person eats handhelds and lots of them. Pizza and burgers seem to be the "My 600-lb Life" favorites. "My 600-lb Life" Dr. Now's 1200 calorie diet calls for nixing anti-keto "white foods" (bread, buns, rolls, rice, pasta, potatoes and even corn, which isn't really a white food but just as bad cuz it's so carb-y-starch-y.) 

I lost 100 pounds without a gastric bypass, but I did follow a gastric bypass type 1200 calorie diet. And I get why no white foods. You can't afford the high calorie price on the 1200 calorie diet. Not if you want to get full. One hotdog, brat or piece of pizza is about half that with the bun, meat, cheese and sloppings. And I don't know about you, but ain't no way one piece a pizza gonna fill me up. So I make up recipes with diet food swaps

Tonight, I made breadless keto pizza rolls, I guess you'd call them. I cooked pepper, onions, mushrooms and turkey pepperoni in carb smart spaghetti sauce. I topped with a little mozzarella, parmesan (very keto friendly) and bacon bits. I rolled some in spinach leaves for crustless pizza rolls. I've also put toppings in pepperoni for bite-size pizza rolls. I saved tons of calories and never missed the crust. These are perfect for charcuterie, tailgate parties, and anytime you need weight loss recipes on the go. Sorry I got no pictures...done et the whole plate (only 200 calories, woo-hoo!)
