For the month of March I am attempting to eat low carb, and based on how that goes I may stick to it long term or may gradually increase my carb intake.
I have been on plan for 3 days so far and finding it easier than I expected, although the first day as you will see I ate far too much calories/fat, but stuck to my allowance of 25 carbs. As I am new to this it will take some time to adjust to, and I want to try and keep my calories around 1600 a day, and my recommended fat intake is 101g and protein 148g. I have a fridge and freezer full of meat so need to start getting creative and find some recipes to follow.
Low carb is something I have never tried before as I always thought it was a lifestyle I couldn't do, I love bread and pasta! My brain seems to work in a strange way, when following weight watchers I knew there were foods I shouldn't really have, or should have in small quantities, but this didn't stop me from eating lots of them. Now there are foods I CANT have and I am fine with that, it doesn't bother me. Am I the only one who has a brain that works like that?! So I think this will be relatively easy to stick too.
Time for the numbers, prior to deciding to go to low carb last week (Friday) I ate far too much the beginning of the week, so the scales went up, although since starting low carb they have gone down, so I hope to be posting better numbers next week.
Previous Weight: 272.4
Today's weigh in: 274.4Total loss 30.6lbs
+/- : +2lbs

I am hoping that doing low carb will mean I eat a lot less junk in Vegas this weekend too - it should do :)
Have a great week everyone
