Headin2Mexico's Journal, 28 March 2013

Thoughts on my first "real" day of the 2 day a week low carb diet. I've been doing those on an ad hoc basis, but now I have the book and tried to follow their guidelines. I was to eat a max number of servings as follows: protein 12; fats 5; Dairy 3; low carb Fruit 1; low carb veg 5. The book states over and over that people didn't feel hungry on their low carb days and many did not eat up to the max number of foods. Not me! I've been pretty hungry most of the day. I ate the max number of everything, plus a little extra protein, possibly a little extra veg and some almond milk that doesn't really fit any category. I also have a headache (maybe related, maybe not). I drank coffee in the morning (no more or less than usual); lots of water; green tea in the afternoon and with dinner. My energy levels are pretty good, but I'm craving some carbs!!!

Next week I'm going to try Tuesday/Wednesday back to back low carb days as the book recommends.
