today i am going to write down everything that i eat, an endeavor that has always seemed useless to me in the past but all the gurus say to do it, so here goes. i have found a few hidden carbs in the things i usually eat daily. for instance……..my multi-vitamin has 3 carbs!! ok, its a gummy so i should have expected it but that is a large chunk of my 20 carb budget for something that gives me no oral satisfaction!! ok so i am left with 17 carbs today. my coffee is 5 carbs and my bacon breakfast was 0, im down to 12 left for entire day and its only 10 am!!
for lunch i am eating a sandwich on healthy life bread soooooo thats 5 carbs per slice, leaving me 2 carbs for the day…….. wow. i have no idea how this day is going to turn out but i intend to write it all down here and account for every gram!! on this sandwich was deli chicken, 4 slices hard salami, slice of cheddar cheese, 2 slices tomato (around 1 carb or so), lots of mayo, mustard and salt. on a lcl i have to add salt or i get leg cramps. now i am at 19 carbs. leaving me 1 carb for the rest of the day. good thing i have fats to keep me company!!
i do feel i am going to need the keto strips. i need to know the number at which i slip out of ketosis.
dinner is going to be difficult……
