First, I should probably introduce myself. Tomorrow will be six months for me on a low-carb diet and so far I have lost 13 lbs. I am still just getting the hang of this type of eating, as I am a former vegetarian who is learning to enjoy meat (seriously!). I am 37 years old and have been on the chunkier side of healthy my whole life. My ultimate goal is to get under 140 lbs and to wear a size 8 or 10 (I have been a 12/14 for as long as I can remember).
Onto my question...one of things I love the most about low-carb eating is that I don't have to count calories. Every now and again, I do track what I eat (I was using My fitness pal, but now I'm trying to use SP) just so I can see where I am falling with my carb intake. I just finished my dinner a bit ago and even though I have eaten a little over 1500 calories and 27 grams of carbs (15 net carbs). I know I'm a little low on carbs, but I am worried that if I eat anything else I will go too high in calories.
Here is what I've eaten today:
B - 2 cups of coffee with a total of 4 TBS hwc and stevia (this is what I have for breakfast each morning)
L - 3 cups of baby greens, 3.5 oz steak, a sprinkling of cheese, and 2 TBS ranch dressing
S - 1/4 cup walnuts
D - 3 sausage links and a One Minute Muffin topped with melted butter
Is there anything you would tweak here? Why am I still hungry???
Thanks so much! Loving this team. :)
