I am all over the place with my new eating Plan, I won't be surprised if I haven't lost by wednesday. I ate so many strawberries because I went and picked them with my boys. My husband as been laid up with an injury for a week now and tonight I had a bit of a break down, I just feel like I can't do this all. And now it looks like he might need surgery, I am seriously a BAD caregiver. I feel really behind in all the things I need to get done.
2 eggs, 2 pc. Canadian bacon
One ounce chicken, a LOT of strawberries
All veggie lasagna, meat and noodle free/ 3 ounce chicken
One cup oat bran cereal with Devonshire cream and strawberries
TONS of water. I ate way too much fruit and hope I don't pay the price on the scale Wednesday. My energy was not so great, felt super foggy and zapped all day, but it's also warm here and I don't do well with too much heat.

Well, I can already tell that a strict low carb diet will never work for me, but a low carb diet is doable if I have a little wriggle room. This also means I can't really eat the high fat foods that other diets (atkins) allow. I'm curious to know what my weigh in says on Wednesday. Celebrated a bit tonight for my moms bday. I also ate banana, that was not in my plan.
3 pc. Canadian bacon/ 2 eggs/ coffee
Veggie lasagna (no noodles, no sauce)/ small hot dog
Grilled pork/4 bites fish patty/2 bites rice
Coffee with condensed milk
Cup of strawberries with whipped cream, small pc. Angel food cake
All in all nit as good as i hoped but I wasn't hungry. Felt tired the first half of the day and still haven't caught up on sleep but overall, felt good. Did feel bloated after the dessert.

This goes against everything I have ever thought was true but I am going to do the low carb diet, I started yesterday. I will not be as strict as Atkins but I do plan on staying away from all white/refined carbs and not overdosing on fruit like I like to do. I feel weird eating lots of cheese, heavy meats so I imagine I won't go crazy on those either. I'll just take it one day at a time. Gary Taubes makes a great case against just eating low calorie. He argues it's the TYPE of calorie and it does makes sense to me. I also think you can't go wrong cutting out empty carbs no matter what plan you are on.
Day two: did not feel very hungry today, which is a first. Was sad I had to turn down my fave donuts when we had a family "treat" day, which is rare. I did miss my carbs but ate very well. Feels weird not to be overly concerned with fat and calories, it feels wrong.
2 egg veggie scramble/ 2 piece very lean bacon/ 2 cups coffee
Nonfat Greek yogurt/pistachios, sunflower seeds, one mango
6 vegetable lasagna (meat, noodle free) with mozzarella
One cup strawberries with Devonshire cream/ one fourth cup semi sweet choc. Chips
WATER WATER WATER all day
I feel great. Totally and utterly exhausted form taking care of kids, injured husband and crazy work hours. Need more rest badly. Only had one walk today. Cried a lot, I am anxious to not feel so depleted. Can't wait for my husband to recover, it's exhausting doing it all, plus some!

Reading "good calorie, bad calorie", very interesting. I am going to try a low carb diet (not non carb) for one week. Not exactly Atkins, I don't want super high fat foods or anything processed. I will focus on lean meat, veggies, nuts, seeds, olive oil and some fruit. I won't be following this to the rule but loosely. I will document my hunger/energy levels/satisfaction and any lost weight by the end of the week. I love to read anything related to health/diet but all the info seems to contradict each other and leaves me very confused. I can see though that cutting out bad carbs/sugar and increasing natural healthy fats can only be positive though.
Two eggs/ 1 tsp. Olive oil/ 2 cups coffee
Bowl homemade tomato soup w) basil and blue cheese
Cup low fat cottage cheese/banana
3 piece extra lean bacon/one egg with zucchini, mushrooms
One cup blueberries
Half cup chocolate chip (semi sweet)
Like i said, not to the rule (hence the banana and semi sweet chips) but I feel good about my choices. Need to increase veggies (what's new?) and keep it at no more the two fruits (I did that)
