Happy With My Stats!

Tonight I had a few moments where all I wanted... so badly... was a Dairy Queen pumpkin Blizzard. I mean, it was just sticking in my head terribly. I had a split second of decision and I took advantage of it to drive in the other direction... just in that one split second when I felt in control enough to do it. I kept telling myself I could make something healthier when I got home... something with lower carbs. I made it home Blizzard-free!

1404 calories
59 g carbs (16%)
90 g protein (25%)
95 g fat (59%)

Breakfast was a Medifast bar on the run and some black coffee. Lunch was a big salad of Romaine, spinach, tomatoes, avocado, crumbled bacon, and mozzarella cheese with light Ranch. Snack was an Americano with half and half and a little "shortbread" I made from almond flour and almond butter baked in the toaster oven. Dinner was 2 sausage patties, Egg Beaters, light cheese, and avocado. When I got home from my evening errand run, I did make myself a "blizzard" out of a Medifast chocolate pudding packet, ice, pumpkin pie spice, and slivered almonds. It was quite good.

I felt really good again today and think my stats are almost perfect. All the food was very satisfying.

I prepped a cooler with carrot sticks, snap peas, light Ranch dip, pre-made protein shakes, homemade cold coffee, Greek yogurts, low fat cheese, and lean ham slices. I am also bringing protein bars. I think I am prepared... if I had more time I'd have boiled a few eggs and cooked some chicken breast too but this time, what I've got will just have to do.

Hope to be posting from a hotel tomorrow!

I was gritting my teeth against carb cravings today, too... Good for you for not giving in!

Your stats are looking much better, I hope you're feeling okay and don't hit the keto adaptation wall of fatigue (carb flu) too hard. I'm bracing against it, too, but I need to get off my own over-carbing the last few months.

I've been buying costco eggs hard boiled in a 24 pack. Fantastic, fast snacks. And they are not eggy smelling.

Safe travels.

Good job avoiding the blizzard! Keep it up.

Well done on controlling those cravings today! Good luck for tomorrow!

Stop eating all that "light" shit - light Ranch, low fat cheese, light this light that. You know what replaces the fat? Carbs!! Even if absolutely nothing else is done to a food, especially dairy, just removing or reducing fat causes the percentage of carbs (and in some cases protein) to go up. It's only logical, since all foods are made up of these three macros. Fat doesn't make you fat. (Or at least it doesn't make ME fat.) Carbs do.

Just a thought.

So you don't think 59% of calories from fat is enough? I personally don't want to go much higher, but you have to do what works for you! I also don't want my carbs lower at this point. I think these stats are just about where I want to be. Also, I use lower fat cheese and dressings because those are not the healthiest fats; I want most of my fat intake to come from grass fed, free range meats, eggs, olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds.

Great blog thanks! I really need to do that cooler idea! I drive around a lot for my job that would help keep me on track!

I purchased a 4-egg microwave egg cooker from Amazon a few weeks back and LOVE it - all it takes is 10 minutes in the microwave and you have 4 perfectly hard boiled eggs.
