well, day 3 of low carbs was tougher than i expected… mainly it was due to unexpected things happening. i was supposed to meet a friend for lunch, i ended up having to get a “grab and go” dinner, and we decided to have sushi tonight. shows how important planning is – i went wayyy over in carbs today :S tomorrow is another day, and i will attempt a no carb day; even no carbs @ breakfast……… we’ll see how that goes over!
overall, i think i did “ok” for my very first attempt over these 3 days. at the least, i learned a lot.
here is my food log from today:
meal 1: 1 orange, 1 bowl of vector with skim milk, and a 3 egg white omelette with low fat ricotta cheese
possible improvement: swap cereal for oatmeal, and take out the ricotta cheese
meal 2: 3/4 cup cottage cheese with 1 tbsp peanuts and cinnamon; and zucchini sticks
possible improvement: take out the peanuts
meal 3: 1 banana, 1 whey isolate protein shake, 1 6″ sub
possible improvement: i dont have subway often – i had plans to go for lunch with a friend
meal 4: 1/2 can tuna with udo oil, 1 tomato, 1/2 yellow pepper, carrots
possible improvement: none, i am totally good with this
meal 5: 1/2 6″ sub
possible improvement: ixnay the sub, replace with 1/2 protein shake and 1/2 serving of oatmeal
meal 6: salmon sashimi and 1 spicy tuna roll
possible improvement: ixnay on the roll with the rice
