It seems such a shame to purposely eat carbs today when my stats are looking so good. But I am thinking it is to do with my unplanned overeating the last two weekends, so this time I am going to do it right and get to the 50's this time next week.
I have just got up and had a BANANA -- oh my God how exquisite is a banana when you haven't had one for nearly 6 months! And a glass of cold skim milk -- yum ...
I am going to go lift some weights in about 30 minutes.
Pre workout snack = 32g Cho : 9.3g Pro : 0.7g Fat - 165 calories.
Supplements = multivitamin, chromium, kelp [no fish oil today]
Check back later - I shall update throughout the day.
Worked out hard - could be my imagination but having something in your stomach makes a difference -- I normally work out empty. More energy than I've had in a while. Wobbly legs now.
For breakfast I had rolled oats and cinnamon pancakes, [used fat free yogurt instead of cottage cheese] banana, maple syrup and low fat icecream.
I think I have just died and gone to heaven.
Breakfast = 99g Cho : 30g Pro : 12g Fat - 616 calories.
My aplogies in advance to all you low carb people -- especially those on induction, for the following photo, but I just had to capture it before it went in my stomach.
To take your mind off that food, take a look at this article on Leptin and Refeeding.
And now for some entertainment this is my virtual model before and after.
Yes folks -- picture 1 is 135 pounds and picture 2 is 120 pounds -- and yep they are both exactly the same! Virtual model can't even deal with my goals -- no wonder I'm screwed!! LOL
Lunch - baked sweet potato and seafood salad
Lunch = 81g Cho : 24g Pro : 12g Fat - 510 calories
Supplements = Alpha Lipoic Acid, Potassium & Magnesium Aspartate
Have been experiencing feeling hot and sort of wired. I think my body is having problems regulating the influx of starches/sugars. I don't feel like I am having insulin spikes and crashes, probably because my carbs have been mostly low GI.
Weird observation -- I don't feel like I have to eat everything I've missed on low carb today because I know I get to do this again next week. Look at my lunch choice - protein and veges/salad -- not an out of control binge but what I really wanted to eat. I may be OK with this after all.
Afternoon snack - cornflakes and skim milk
Snack = 49g Cho: 7.5g Pro : 0.3g Fat - 223 calories
Dinner - whole wheat pasta, salsa and low fat cheese
Dinner = 42g Cho : 28g Pro : 5.2g Fat - 334 calories
Dessert - low carb icecream
Dessert = 11g Cho : 2.9g Pro : 2.2g Fat - 74 calories
End of day observations:
I feel fat, bloated, uncomfortable and tired. Sweet things taste so very sweet and leave a funny taste in your mouth. Although carbs fill up your stomach, I still feel strangely unsatisfied after eating them. Although I had adequate protein, I mostly got it from low fat dairy and eggs which didn't seem as filling as good old-fashioned fatty meat. The things I enjoyed the most today were the bananas and the sweet potato - good old fruit and vege! Who would have thought.
Don't feel the need to keep eating like this tomorrow, in fact, I am looking forward to going back to my low carb life. Mostly looking forward to the FAT!! [eating it not wearing it]
Total days tally
314g carbohydrates :103g protein : 33g fat : 35g fibre - total calories = 1922
which is close to my target of 300g carbs and 100g protein but I overdid it on the fat slightly by about 15 grams.
Now I have tomorrow's weigh in to look forward to ... AHHH!! I am seriously considering going for a run on the treadmill now even though it is 11pm because I feel "heavy".
Thank you and good night!!!
