When your weight loss is at a stand still, fluctuating, or just being plain fickle on you… the best thing to do is simplify your meals and food choices as much as you possibly can.
That’s why we’re doing the 3IMAX Mini-Challenge this week. 3IMAX means 3 Ingredients Max (per plate/meal).
We’re on Day 10 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” Low Carb Challenge, but you can join in anytime! 🙂
Day 9: Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
I missed my berries on Monday, so I added them back in yesterday. 🙂 This is what I call “low carb cereal” and this time it was 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 1/2 cup pecans & 4 small strawberries. (5 net carbs and 85% healthy fats)
For lunch I grabbed a 1/3 Pound Low Carb Thickburger from Hardee’s. It’s on the menu. I just asked for mine “plain with cheese & mayo, please.” (zero carbs)
My easy low carb dinner was ham & eggs. The ham is actually a “Big Hot Ham & Cheese” from Hardee’s without the bun:
I warmed that up, then scrambled two eggs to eat with it. Quick & easy! 🙂
I felt a little chilled late last night and didn’t really want another coffee, so I heated up some Campbell’s chicken broth. I just made the whole can in a large measuring cup, but only drank 1 cup – and saved the rest for today.
Chicken broth is a great for sodium & electrolytes when you feel a little icky, or even if you just want a nice hot savory drink.
Before the broth, I had a quick snack late last night of 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese with 1/4 cup pecan halves. Then that steamy hot broth really hit the spot! 🙂
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Tuesday:
Net Carbs: 21
Total Carbs: 31
Protein: 86 Grams
Macro Ratios: 74% Fat, 21% Protein
Water: 72 ounces
Starting Weight: 154.6
Current Weight: 151.2 pounds
Weight Loss (so far): 3.4 pounds
My weight is holding steady which is REALLY odd for me, but I’m not going to sweat it. I actually FEEL thinner today, so I expect my scales to start moving again. 🙂
My allergies are in full tilt with Spring so that may have something to do with it. I’m also not sleeping well lately, which always affects my weight loss. Who knows. I’m just going to let it play itself out, and keep sticking to my macros.
Stay tuned though, I expect to FINALLY dip below 150 this week! 😉
