I wasn't going to blog about it until I got a couple of weeks into it. But what the heck, I'll live dangerously. I'm going to journal what I eat and see if this accountability keeps me on target. Not noted below, I drink water throughout the day and will mention any other drinks. The goal is to remain at or below a sugar/carb ratio of 15grams/6servings for each day.
Breakfast> 2 fried eggs, 1 slice Ezekial bread with butter and colby cheese, mug of chamomile tea (s/c=0/1)
Lunch> 2c lettuce salad w/ 2Tbsp diced egg / 2Tbsp shredded cheddar / 3Tbsp diced chicken patty, 1/4c cottage cheese (s/c= 1/1)
Snacks> 1 tootsie roll midgee, glass kool-aid sweetened with xylitol, 1/4c macadamia nuts, mug of red tea with vanilla (s/c=4/0)
Supper> beef roast, 1/2c potatoes, 1/2c carrots, 1/4c cottage cheese on 1 lettuce leaf, 1 mini dill pickle, glass kool-aid sweetened with xylitol (s/c=5/2)
Total s/c for the day - 10/4
The tootsie smidgee was a total thoughtless habit... I went to the credit union after work where they always have had a candy dish at each cashier and where I've always reached up and grabbed one. I even said to the cashier that the tootsie felt hot in my mouth, like spicy hot. Never thought anything of it until I left and had driven a couple of blocks away. Then it hit me - I totally just ate sugar! Fortunately it was tiny and I haven't ate near the limited amount of sugar allowed. Old habits die hard.
