Just got home from our little trip out of town and added up my calories for the day. Some of this was eyeballing rather than measuring, because the food from a restaurant had no nutrition stats, but I think I eyeballed it pretty well. The rest is quite accurate.
Breakfast buffet at the hotel was totally loaded with carbs! All kinds of pastries and muffins, cereals and oatmeals, juices, biscuits and gravy, sugary yogurts, bagels, toast, English muffins and fresh made waffles. I managed to create a lower carb meal for myself though: hard boiled eggs, sausage links, and black coffee. I also had 2 bites of banana because I had leg cramps all night and I hoped the potassium would help.
Lunch was an Americano with half and half, a low carb yogurt I brought in the cooler, and some soy crisps. Snack was a Medifast crunch bar. I drank lots of water, too. Dinner was a big salad of Romaine with onions, tomatoes, roast beef, pepperjack cheese, and avocado. That was not on the menu where we ate; in fact, there were NO salads on the menu. Just tons of sandwiches. So I just asked them to make me a salad out of the sandwich fillings and they were happy to oblige.
I am super tired and looking forward to SLEEP tonight! I'll have a Medifast hot cocoa before bed, and then my totals for the day will be:
71 g carbs (22%)
99 g protein (31%)
66 g fat (47%)
