A couple days into my diet

Friday, September 20, 2013

So far things are going pretty well. The first 2 days were hard because I had TONS of cravings for carbs. Today I did NOT crave carbs, that was huge for me. I normally live on carbs so I think I had to flush my system of them.

The biggest challenge has been trying to eat enough protein and drink enough water. I surprisingly have not had trouble staying under 1,000 calories a day. Here are some examples of the things that I have been eating:

Breakfast meals...

3 eggs fried (no butter, just PAM in the pan) & 1/2 cup of cottage cheese- 30g protein 320 calories

3 eggs scrambled with 1/3 cup 2%milk and 4 slices of Deli Ham mixed in- 30.7g protein 320 calories

Lunch meals...

White Albacore Tuna (4oz.) with 1tbsp. Miracle Whip- 27g protein 180 calories

Salad (Iceberg lettuce, carrots, lite raspberry walnut vinaigrette) and 1/2 cup cottage cheese- 
13.3g protein 216 calories

Dinner Meals...

Chicken Breast baked in Vodka Sauce- 28.5g protein 170 calories

Ground Turkey with Taco Seasoning, 1/6c shredded cheese, 1 tbsp sour cream, and 1/2 cup refried beans- 32.9g protein 385 calories

I am starting an 8 Week Challenge with a group of friend on Saturday. I started a Facebook group for it and I need to fill you guys in on the details soon but not tonight because I am too tired. Details coming soon =)
  1. You're doing great!

    I wish I liked eggs... and cottage cheese. And I wish I ate meat. I am a carb-cutting FAIL!! lol
