Today is my third day on the Slow Carb D*&^, here’s a quick update on how I’m going:
I weighed myself this morning and I’m a kilo down from 2 days ago. I know I know what the response will be – in 2 days weight can fluctuate in a big way. But, for me, fluctuations only go up. Then they come back down to what I’m always at. That’s it. They never, ever go down and them come up. So a kilo down is a big thing for me.
I’m finding the protein at every meal a bit of a challenge. I’m not used to eating this much meat.
Since I’ve started here’s what I’ve been eating:
Roast chicken, salad and red kidney beans (I started at dinner)
2 small egg and vegetable muffins with red kidney beans
Roast chicken, salad and red kidney beans
Afternoon snack: Can tuna and beans, handful of snowpeas
Steak, salad and red kidney beans
Evening snack: 1 small egg and vegetable muffin
2 small egg and vegetable muffins, with lentils
(Note: I made a batch of egg and vegetable muffins in advance for breakfasts)
I had the snacks because I was hungry a few hours after my meal, but the eating plan advises to have 4 meals a day (a small lunch late afternoon).
