I just joined this team, so I'm just going to hop in here :) I've actually done very good since the 19th in eating fruits and veggies... most days I eat salads with several veggies, and usually a bananna and/or apple as well. Today I ate a spinach and strawberry salad for lunch - and will be eating some green beans at dinner :) I just went grocery shopping and loaded up on all sorts of fruits and veggies.

Hey Tara - do you have a good recipe for Quinoa? I tried it one time and the recipe was not good - I want to try it again. It is so good for you with the protein, etc. that I would really like to like it. :)

Becca don't worry about it, do what you can when you can. If tracking is hard, how about writing it down in a food journal while you eat. But if time is just impossible for you right now, then don't worry about it. Perhaps when things slow down you can give tracking a try and see how it works for you. Good job getting healthy food in, I know how hard that can be when we are super busy. Keep it up!

if that's all i ate i'd be skinny even with my unmedicated hypothyroid. i get this every day. the carbs might be additional fruit/veggies rather than grains which i need to limit.

Tara - white bread and bun and no veggies on the sandwiches. So far today I've had 2 fruits, 2 veggies, and 1 protein, and 1 complex carb if Cheerios count.

Nancy - what kind of bread was your turkey sandwich and hamburger bun? Did you put any lettuce, tomato or other vegetable on those? All the little things count, so don't forget to include them.

Great job everybody, I'm seeing some awesome choices happening, keep it up.

ImagemLover, I don't know how I do it, but every day and I mean every day when I track my food and every single thing that has gone into my mouth, I'm still way under on my carbs. I don't eat potato's, white rice or pasta, or breads unless they would be whole wheat. I usually go for the Arnold's Sandwich Multi Grain Sandwich Thins, you get 2 slices and they are only 90 calories for the 2, but I only eat a sandwich maybe once a week. Breakfast is usually cottage cheese and there is some carbs in that but not much, and I eat plenty of fruit and veggies, and yes, they both have carbs, but again not a lot. A snack for me is hummus with Special K Cracker Chips 30 crackers is 23 g of carb and 110 calories, so if I do splurge on crbs it would be on this!, and it's healthy to boot!!!

Joy overflows in my life!

I have inner peace!!

I have the power to change myself!

I have faith in my ability to succeed!

I do this everyday usually. Saturday I really didn't track as I was in Block Island and it is hard to track when you eat out. I want to know the secret to not eating carbs or coming in under carbs. Carbs make up anywhere between 54-62% of my calories. They are "good" carbs from fruit and vegetables supposedly but they are still carbs and I hate them. emoticon how do you come in under on your carbs?

So true! It's a challenge for me to not stop and pick up fast food take out when I get stuck at work late and I'm starving. Or pick up a donut instead of a loaf of whole grain bread on the way to work in the morning. Oh, and pass up on all of that free pizza at lunch that my company loves to treat employees with!

I keep reminding myself that an hour after I eat that junk, I'm either starving again or feeling awful. Simple carbs are my poison!

I know a lot of people are hesitant to eat carbs, but keep in mind we are talking about complex carbohydrates, not simple carbs. Our bodies need healthy carbs for energy. If you are wanting to keep your carb intake healthy, stay away from white rice, white pasta and breads and sugar. Oatmeal is an excellent complex carb, one small slice of whole grain bread (containing no white flour) is another, 1/2 cup of whole grain cereal. You can create a meal by combining a legume and brown rice and now you've gotten your 2 complex carbs and a protein. You've also gotten a lot of fibre which brings down your net carb for that meal, that is particularly helpful for a diabetic tracking carbs.

I suppose we call these challenges because they are suppose to help us focus on the things we may find more difficult. Do the best we can and see what we can learn about some of our eating patterns and perhaps some ways we can resolve those things we find difficult.

Wow, this is exactly what my doctor has me eating. My complex carbs are two slices of gluten-free bread per day, toasted. I'm also dairy-free. After one week on this diet, my sinuses are clear and I can breathe even with all of the smoke in the air from the wild fires.



Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

This is a great challenge! Having Type 2 diabetes has given me a little advantage over this challenge, after going to see my dietician on several occasions, I have learned that with each meal I should consume no more than 25g of carbs per meal. Carbs are not only found in bread, but here are carbs in potato's , some fruits, ysome yogurts, and white rice and regular pasta. My problem is that I cannot eat the amount of carbs that is expected of me each day!! Before T2D (Type2Diabetes) I was a carb overload, loved my potato's with extra butter, didn't meet a roll or bread, that didn't have my name written all over it, white rice - just push that bowl over here, I'll finish it!! Cakes, Cookies, Pies, Oh My all for Me, I'll take three!!! Yeah, they were the old days, filled with lots of carbs and loads of fat all on ME!! So now I eat healthy, pass up my bad habits for good ones and have trouble eating carbs - go figure!!!

Joy overflows in my life!

I have inner peace!!

I have the power to change myself!

I have faith in my ability to succeed!

Morning CatLady I found this article today which gave me a better idea of what kind of carbs I should be eating. Now the knowledge is good but I don't think it will make me like carbs any better lol

Sorry CatLady I forget to add the link

Okay, but carbs will be a problem for me too. I don't necessarily eat "complex" carbs, certainly not 2 a day. I'll have to look up some mroe items for complex carbs.

Good challenge but I am really going to have to work on the carbs. I just am not a carb eater and I usually come in under that requirement every day.

Here's a challenge to help keep us tracking our food and perhaps even help us get some of those good things into our daily diet.

Eat 2 servings of fruit and/or vegetables a day
Eat 2 servings of complex carbs a day
Eat 2 servings of protein a day
Track it all on the nutritional tracker or in a food diary.

If you are not sure about a serving size check out this great article.

Wondering what are some complex carbs?
Legumes such as beans, peas, lentils and soybeans. Whole grain pastas, breads, buns and bagels. Brown rice, quinoa, millet and barley are also good sources of complex carbohydrates.


To give freely without expectation is a true gift.
