Today, after reading a fellow low-carber’s blog, I decided that I really should be tracking my carbs. So, I reconnected to my old MyFitnessPal account and logged in the meals below. It was less than I thought – and fewer calories as well! I don’t really feel like I’m ‘dieting,’ especially when I get to eat bacon, butter, full fat yogurt and cheese. I’ve pasted a snapshot of my daily totals at the bottom. This may not be as low-carb as many, but I want to see how my body reacts to this number and go from there. I’ve put the total carbs next to each meal as well.
This afternoon was truly a test of my willpower. My family and I went to a 1-year-old’s birthday party, and I forgot to take a snack with me (hence no afternoon snack). I had to stare cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and chips in the face and take a swig from my water.
So, my carb grand total for today was 72. I’m aiming for fewer than 100 to start with. And, the type of carb is important to me – a whole food, not a processed snack.
