I am absolutely loving the Low Carb way of eating…
It’s not hard, and I am still able to use lots of convenience foods (frozen spinach for example) and still eat out as much as I please – fast food and restaurants alike.
I am eating better than I ever have in my entire adult life with plenty of lean meat and the best vegetables – romaine salads, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, etc.
And berries, of course! 😀 Prior to going low carb I was eating tons of junk & processed foods. And a lot of french fries – lol.
That was my breakfast ->
3 eggs scrambled with spinach and cheddar cheese.
Super easy, less than 5 minutes to done, and absolutely delicious!
For dinner tonight I had a Hardees Thickburger with mayo, lettuce & pickle – wrapped in a low carb tortilla (1 carb) – and an order of onion rings (42 carbs).
Yesterday I made a hamburger steak for dinner, with cheesy broccoli and a tossed romaine salad.
Thursday night we went out to dinner and I had a half rack of ribs with light sauce, with green beans & broccoli on the side.
I also had about 3 mozzarella cheese sticks. 🙂
My point is that I’m eating great foods, and even “carb splurging” a little here and there, and STILL losing weight. In fact, I’ve lost 2 more pounds since Wednesday!
The picture above was taken on Wednesday.
The picture below was taken today, on Saturday:
I’ve been eating low carb now for just over 90 days – maybe close to 4 months. I started at 175 pounds, by the way. In the beginning I stayed really close to “induction phase” – meaning I kept my daily intake strictly below 20 net carbs a day.
I have lost close to 25 pounds, and have gotten into low carb as a “way of life” more so than just “a diet to lose 20 pounds”. So a splurge here and there is normal at this stage of the game. I’m not out to punish myself from foods I love (onion rings). Instead, I’m eating them in moderation – and as a treat, not as a normal part of my daily diet (anymore -lol).
And I’m still losing weight.
I doubt I will ever go back to eating things like pasta, bread, rice, etc. They don’t even appeal to me anymore. I love the way I’m eating, LOVE the way I’m looking 😉 and I feel better than I have in years!
