About Chris Sloan

Chris Sloan 75lbs weight loss

My name is Chris Sloan and I, like so many others, struggled with my weight for years, not realizing the toll being overweight was taking on my body. At the beginning of 2021, I began to take my weight loss efforts seriously and have lost 75 lbs so far on the plan. It's been amazing, and while my journey isn't over, I'm well on my way!

When I started, I had a hard time finding the top 5 and 1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!

For those new to the plan, weighing your food is an integral part of the program; it's one of the critical elements. If you want to be successful, you need to ensure that each meal has been weighed according to the guidelines. And we're not talking about "close enough." We mean EXACTLY those amounts! So forget about using a measuring cup or even eyeballing it—you need a food scale!

We've worked hard to make sure that all recipes listed are approved for the plan.

The recipes on this site are intended for those on plan; however, they can easily be adapted to a low-carb or keto lifestyle. If you are following a ketogenic or low-calorie diet, you can enjoy many recipes found here to help keep you on track for your weight loss efforts.

Lean & Green Cauliflower Crust Chicken Potpie Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400*F.
  2. Combine cauliflower and water in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 5 minutes or until cauliflower is tender. Drain and allow cauliflower to cool. Place cauliflower in a cheesecloth to squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  3. Mix 3/4 of the riced cauliflower with the parmesan cheese and egg. Reserve the 1/4 of riced cauliflower for later.
  4. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread cauliflower mixture into 4 equally-sized circles that will fit the inside circumference of your serving bowls. Bake cauliflower crust at 400*F for about 4-8 minutes until center is dry and crust is golden brown.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients to an Instant Pot, including the reserved riced cauliflower, to make the potpie filling. Secure lid, push meat/stew mode, and adjust time for 10 minutes. When Instant Pot beeps, naturally release pressure.
  6. Ladle chicken potpie filling into bowls and top each with a cauliflower crust.
