Can't believe how much concentrated carbs I was eating
Friday, September 20, 2013
It has been an interesting week now that I'm avoiding concentrated carbs. So the coworkers brought in homemade dessert one day and then donuts the other. Normally, I don't pass up on free food, and so it's not unusual for me to start with 2 donuts in the morning and if there are any leftovers, I'd 'help' out or it'd go to waste. LOL. Then there's the free bagels on Monday which carries on through Tue and Wed if they are still any good and if I don't have any starchy foods handy that day. Yesterday, I had to buy some chocolate as a gift to visiting overseas worker. Once again, I found myself in strange situation as I used to get a package or two of Hershey's (commercial size) and ate the whole thing in a few days. So I passed on all the free foods and didn't get any Hershey's milk chocolate with Almonds for myself. What in the world is this?
Adding all the wrong carbs at work with the other carbs at home like rice, pizza and pastas and I'm just amazed at the quantity. No wonder I couldn't lose any weight despite hard exercises when I had the time a few years ago.
I'm not against carbs from fruits and vegetables. I'm just trying to eliminate the wrong carbs like grains and sugars.
