Day 63 Low-Carb (since not exactly Belly Fat Cure)
I realize that I'm not following the BFC to the letter. I've been doing a couple no-no's, at least. Most notably, using a few artificially sweetened items. These have allowed me to continue to cut back on sugar and carbs by allowing me to still enjoy some of the sweet things I crave. I also can afford a Splenda sweetened jar of jam more so than the Nature's Hollow jam I began this diet using. (I mean, we're talking $3 compared to $14!) Also, if an artificially sweetened hot chocolate keeps me from snacking on cookies and a tall glass of milk, I figure it's a better option for me.
Ooh, that reminds me! I discovered a bottle of creamer powder in the cupboard and was pleased to see that it has only 2g carbs (no sugar) in a teaspoon. I added it to my hot chocolate and that made a huge difference - made it more like the creamier stuff I'm used to and took out that little bit of "off-ness" that I noticed.
