Today my eating was all over the place. I was so tired, but had a cup of black coffee and a Medifast bar and went to the gym and worked out for 40 minutes. When I got home, I made a big breakfast scramble: Egg Beaters, turkey sausage, onions, and green peppers cooked in a little butter and topped with cheddar cheese.
At lunch time, I was still busy and grabbed a protein bar that was left in the cabinet from the boys. I buy protein bars for them to stick in their backpacks in case they are at school and get hungry; this one, no one liked. I glanced at the label, which said "20 grams of protein, 0 grams of sugar!" and thought that sounded good enough. Ahhhh! I ALWAYS read Nutrition Facts but this time didn't until I had eaten it and was logging: 22 grams of carbs! What the heck? Will read more carefully in the future...
I had some black coffee and a cheese stick for an afternoon snack and all my stats looked good. But after 3 hours running errands I came home and had a sandwich for dinner. Kind of raised my carb level up a bit... and it was definitely not grain free... but I still managed to get away with a carb total of 101 grams for the day. I am knocking it off now with the "90% grain free" and going 100%. Enough with the carbs already. I know I am going to have to go through carb withdrawal to get back to a state of less hunger and less cravings. But enough already.
101 g carbs (31%)
92 g protein (28%)
60 g fat (41%)
Goals for tomorrow: calories between 1000 and 1400, carbs between 70 and 100, protein over 75 grams.
