3 Day LCHF Food Diary & Low Carb Meal Ideas


 

Keto Snacks

Eating low carb fast food on the go, easy low carb meals at home, low carb chocolate & a GREAT low carb restaurant meal.

That’s what I’ve had for the last three days. Plus I’ve finally lost another pound! 🙂

I started back on my exercise as well since my last update. It’s SO nice to be back on a roll with that…

Here’s what I’ve been eating if you need some low carb meal inspiration. Below is a complete photo tour of my low carb meals the last three days, plus my MyFitnessPal diaries so you can see how I logged each of those meals.

Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals

I had a candy bar for breakfast! (lol)

It was a sugar free, gluten free, keto friendly low carb Coco Polo candy bar – and I did eat raw pecans with it for extra health points. 😉 Have you tried this one yet??

It was really delicious. I was impressed actually. Just the right amount of “cocoa bite” in a rich creamy milk chocolate bar. Mmm 🙂 2 thumbs up!!

I was out running errands later so I grabbed a quick lunch from McDonald’s drive-thru. Thank goodness for their new All Day Breakfast menu! I got “3 sausage patties and 3 fried round eggs please” (and ordered it just like that).

For dinner I made a HUGE plate of cheesy eggs: 4 eggs scrambled in real butter with 2 ounces of colby jack cheese (cubed off the block) with a little salt & pepper.

Thursday’s Low Carb Meals

I made my usual “cereal” for breakfast, which is: 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese, and 4 small strawberries. Then I decided to add 2 TBSP of the PowerBlend Coconut Goji I got in my last Keto Krate to it. 🙂 I love that stuff!!

Thursday was a busy day of consulting and I had very little time between clients, so I made another bowl of “cereal” (without the PowerBlend) for lunch:

Then for dinner that night I had the most amazing low carb meal at Ruby Tuesday. It’s the Double Decker Chicken (2 breasts layered with baby bella mushrooms & bacon, parmesan cream sauce & shaved asiago cheese) with steamed green beans & grilled zucchini. 🙂 Delicious!

I couldn’t eat all of that, so I brought about half of it home to enjoy the next day.;)

Friday’s Low Carb Meals

I had the other half of my low carb Coco Polo candy bar for breakfast with pecans – again. 🙂 That was really good together!

For lunch I had my leftovers from Ruby Tuesday the night before, plus the other half of my date’s Lemon Parm Tilapia that he put in my take-out box too.

That made for a GREAT meal.

I went out dancing on Friday night, so I grabbed a low carb cheeseburger from Hardee’s on the way real quick.

I got it plain with cheese so it wouldn’t drip on my little black dress in the car. 🙂

Eating Low Carb On The Go...

I know the burger is blurry… but it wasn’t blurry in real life, lol.

I ended up drinking FIVE low carb beers while out dancing that night. 😳 Eek! They were Michelob Ultra 12oz beers, at 2.6 carbs each.

 

Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Friday:

Wowsa, dancing in 5 inch heels 👠 is GREAT exercise, lol. 🙂 My calves and hips were really feeling THOSE Fitbit steps the next morning!!! Some of the steps were after midnight of course, for a total of just over 8,000+ steps on my fitbit.

I was glad to wake up a pound later, which means my “weight loss hold” finally lifted. The key is to just power through those days on end where the scales don’t move!

It was especially nice to see that loss the morning after intense exercise – which usually causes the scales not to move for a few days due to “muscle recovery”. So no telling if it would have dropped more without that!

Anyway, it’s NICE to be MAKING myself get back on a roll with exercise. And FUN exercise at that, like dancing. 🙂 Today I had to give my lower body (hips & legs a break – lol – so I did Tricep Dips at home.

 

How are things going for you this week?

Leave a comment & let’s talk. 🙂

    Thank you for the great information! This really helps me. I been trying to wrap my head around this lifestyle and I keep falling back. No will power. But I will keep trying. U make me feel like I can do this. Again thanks

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Fanna 🙂 It becomes SO much easier after the first 3-5 days. If you can just commit to five days only, I think you’ll be really surprised! It’s a natural appetite suppressant and kills your cravings – once you get into ketosis – which both help A LOT. 😉

  2. Carol says:

    First look at your site today and I already love it. I’m going to try some of your meals. I’ve lost 30 lbs on the LCHF diet but am stalled and just cannot lose those last 5 lbs I want and am tired of the same stuff I have been eating. I can’t wait to try your suggestions. Thanks.

    I LOVE reading your emails! THANKS for helping us all out on this confusing road to better health! My question is: HOW can you eat so many eggs & beef & not raise your cholesetrol?
    I have both issues high cholesetrol & pre-diabetes. I am really trying to eat low carb & bumped up my exercise program. But find I am eating more eggs, cheese etc. which is not good for cholesterol! What is the magic mix? I HAVE lost 20 pounds on the road to better health by eating low carb, but have been told to eat more protein & fats. PLUS of course veggies & fruits!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Mo 🙂

      A ketogenic low carb diet is actually GOOD for your diabetes and cholesterol, among many other health issues it can improve – like inflammation and chronic pain.

      The only fruit I eat is berries – which is not technically a fruit. Fruit is very high in natural sugar so you want to avoid that and stick to green veggies & berries.

      Do some research on the effects of a keto diet on cholesterol and pre-diabetes. You’ll be surprised and impressed!

    This is great progress, Lynn Terry. I was watching very close your macros and… what I see today… Despite all weight loss theory you lost a pound today without calorie deficit for last couple week plus… after drinking alcohol (its know that alcohol detains water) 🙂 Where is a logic???? There is no logic!!! I have always knew we did not figure out the truth about weigh loss yet! Congrats!!!!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Oh – lol, did you SEE my calories last week? AND I drank both liquor AND beer last week too – so I’ve lost 6.2 pounds in the last two weeks drinking and packing in the calories. 🙂 haha “defying science” indeed! 😛

      *cheers* 😀

      (The science is in the macros, and the magic behind Food Combining!)

  5. Michelle says:

    I did not know that McDs would cook eggs and sausage for you like that. Great tip! Is the Ruby Tuesday meal a standard menu offering?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Michelle 🙂

      Yes – you can special order ANYwhere, and order “a la carte” even. I just say “3 sausage patties and 3 round fried eggs please.” And with their new All Day Breakfast menu… I can get it anytime. 🙂

      The meal from Ruby Tuesday is on the menu, yes. I did ask for extra parmesan cream sauce (to dip my veggies in) but otherwise it’s a regular menu item. The Coastal Trio is a good option too!
