Yesterday was one of those days where I didn't put a lot of thought into what I was eating. I was busy so I just made it my point to stay in my calorie level and keep the carbs low. I ate a whole avocado over the course of the day. I had some natural almond butter as a snack. Dinner was on the road, grabbed from a grocery sack on the seat next to me and consisted of a few slices of deli cheese and salami. It wasn't until I got home and logged my calories that I found my fat percentage was the highest it's ever been:
36 g carbs (12%)
56 g protein (18%)
94 g fat (70%)
You don't have to tell me that this was a bit extreme on the fat side of things, and that salami is not a good choice generally speaking. I get that. I don't make a habit of eating salami or whole fat cheeses. I have been keeping my fat closer to 57% lately and have felt awesome. Well, let me tell you, 70% fat does not feel awesome!!! I don't even want to talk about the digestive effects of eating that much fat! It is not good. I am stuck near the bathroom today. Live and learn! I won't be going that high again!
Today I am back to my usual 57% fat (so far today). I have already eaten 502 calories (28% protein) so will be having a light snack or salad around 2pm, green tea to drink, and Swedish meatballs over yellow squash for dinner (recipe here). Tomorrow I will play around with cutting my fat a little and upping my lean protein, without increasing carbs. I am still feeling puffy from PMS but am hoping the next time I get on the scale there will be a loss.
