Hey! It is day two and I’m hanging in! I managed not to get too sick this time (it stinks getting sick), and while I didn’t want much, I did eat a healthy bit of food! Just to give you a hint of how water retainy I am, I’m down 6 pounds. From yesterday! That is the magic of the diuretic effect of Atkins.
I don’t count carbs or calories. I am going to tracking food choices through the food pyramid for now.
Why not? We already know that low-carb is a very healthy lifestyle!
Breakfast: Nothing. Induction flu. Felt uber-barfy
Lunch: 1/2 Wendy’s Baconator on Oopsies, 1 Caesar Side Salad
Dinner: Not feeling 100% so had a small garden salad w/ cheese, plum tomatoes, bacon bits,Vinegar and oil
Beverages: I drank water for most of the day, and 1 iced tea sweetened with Stevia
So, according to the food pyramid… (which we alllll know and lub, bwah)
3 meat exchanges, (1 burger, 2 bacon, egg from oopsies)
4 cheese/dairy (cream cheese from oopsie and cheese from baconator and salad)
3.5 veggie servings (1 cup of loosely packed lettuce is only 1 serving, + tomatoes)
2 fat servings (oil from salad, mayo from baconator, dressing from Caesar)
I try to eat when hungry and stop when full–and to be honest, who can eat much when your body is switching gears into induction?
