View Full Version : quick question

I just finished logging in my day yesteray into FitDay. For the first time in the almost two weeks that I have been doing induction I went over 20 net grams of carbs. I am so disappointed in myself. I haven't once gone even close to 20 and just because of some wine!!!!!!!!!!!! I went over.

My question is, am I going to have to start all over again or should I just keep plugging along. I was not going to move into Phase 2 anyway. I was only going to add the LaTortilla low carb tortillas once in a while and of course my wine!
I haven't weighed myself all week either because I wanted to be surprised on Saturday when I weighed I am dreading it. I am afraid I will be up or at least the same and this weeks work will have been for nothing.

Just venting..............mad at myself.

You dont have to start over! :) Just remember, No bread of any kind, including the low carb ones and no Wine is allowed on induction.

I am almost completing my 8th week of induction. I had Beer once during this time and didnt realize I couldnt. I didnt start over, just went with it. I wasnt over in carbs though with it...

You can stay on Induction as long as you feel you need to are are not bored. I was on Induction for almost 3 months...and have just recently increased my carbs.

Just remember when adding carbs to follow the OWL ladder.....I think wine/alcohol are rung 5 and breads/grains is the last on rung 9 so you may want to wait before adding the tortillas??

Good luck, you're doing great and don't forget to post your 2 week induction results!

I wouldn't worry about it, just make sure tomorrow you do your 20 carbs and try not to go over.

I stay between 20 - 30 but mostly 20. Some days I just feel I need more food and I ususally gorge on veggies.

I bet the scale is going to smile at you. Don't worry.
