What a Weekend!

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:

1257 calories
71 g carbs (22%)
99 g protein (31%)
66 g fat (47%)

That's about as good for travel as it can get. Good going!

see you CAN be on plan and travel and you survived the dreaded breakfast buffet! leg cramps on a low carb regime typically mean you're losing fast. make sure you gt a poatssium tablet to take daily. good job!

Good job on the weight loss.

I take 400 mg of magnesium a day and even in pregnancy have had no leg cramps (yet - knock on wood!). It helps immensely with that and I sleep better when taking to too, I think.

Hi Lynn, first time poster, long time reader. Just wanted to say FYI avocados have more potassium then bananas. :-)
