No, seriously? Why aren’t I?
This is Week 3 of my low/no carb diet and I’ve lost about 1kg.
Ok, I’ve had some carbs… And I’ll tell you which ones:
Week One: I had popcorn(monday) and 1 slice of bread (Wednesday), 3 biscuits (Saturday) – I was still adjusting and also had butternut and brown sugar beans on my menu, not realising how much carbs are in butternut and brown beans, and they have now been banished.
Week Two: I had a muffin (Monday) and a pizza (Thursday)
Week Three: Muffin (Monday) and I will be going to review a restaurant on Friday, So I might have a dessert, but keep everything else carb free.
Here is my Carbs consumed report from the last 30 days. The red arrow indicates the day I started being carb free. I want to be consuming less than 50g of carbs per day… and it can be hard to achieve.
Otherwise, I’ve been eating more Veg than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Sometimes I fail reach my 1200 calorie goal, because leaves have so few calories.
Do I need to exercise more? Do I need to reduce my protein? Do I need to eat more veggies more often?
Do I need to not have any cheat meals?
Do I need to be more patient?
I don’t know.
But what i do know is that I’m NOT giving up! I’ve given up too often in the past, and I am going to stick with this. I will generally not be having carbs as a normal part of my diet for the rest of my life (unless it’s for medical reasons or if I ever get pregnant)
