Default July Daily Intake Accountability Thread

I'm moving the thread up a forum and starting a new month. Hey, I live in the future, so sue me...it's already July 1 here.

Please feel free to post as much or as little about your daily intake as you feel the need to post for your own accountability.

I'll be making my first post in about 8 hours.

Hmm. This is a good idea. I should do this, really.

July 1st:

Breakfast:
slice of honeydew melon.
80g of feta cheese.
6 cherries.
6 slices of salami.

LUNCH:
Cup of pumpkin soup.
Couple of lettuce leaves.
Stir-fried veg (cabbage, bok choi, mushrooms, broccoli).
2 slices of boiled egg.
2 or 3 small pieces of chicken (which I picked out of the singapore noodles, because there was no other bloody protein in sight! Bloody school dinners! Today was particularly bad - macaroni-with-sausage, singapore noodles, rice, potatoes, carrots, stir-fried veg, salad. I mean - hello?)

SNACK:
Babybel individual cheese.
Cube of 73% cocoa chocolate
Handful of salted broad beans.

DINNER:
Various Thai dishes shared with friends:
Fish with chilli
Green seafood curry
Spicy beef salad
Pork with stir fried veggies.

YUM!!! ...no idea what the carb content was, but can't have been scary - pretty much all the ingredients were induction-friendly stuff, since I skipped the rice - just the coconut milk in the curry that's a wee bit off plan, and that's not a particularly wicked thing.

How I feel: I am so burnt out. I had to use the gym in the evening for two reasons. The first was because my morning was taken up with other things, and the second is…grrr…the parent/child room is under construction.

This means I’m going to have to work out at night after my husband gets home from work until the 11th which is when it is supposed to reopen. Knowing the military it will probably take longer than that. I am NOT happy. I am so unmotivated in the evenings, mornings are my best exercise time.
Yes, you will all probably see me throwing fits for the next 9 days because I can't work out at the gym in the morning. It was so bloody hard forcing myself to stay at the gym working out tonight. I HATE working out at night, at least during the 'warmer' months. No flipping AC in there!

To make matters worse I'm so burned out from exercise that I didn't feel like cooking so I ate greasy fast-food chicken instead.

Water drinking? No problem at least for me. I know the more I drink water the more I want it.

Fay, you can do it!

See, I do drink water a lot during the day, and was considering myself to be pretty well hydrated (I mean, I live in the tropics, and before then in the Middle East - water is my friend!) - which is why I hadn't been measuring it. But I'm not at all sure that it was adding up to 2 whole litres, because that looks like a lot when you stare at a litre bottle of water, so...yeah.

Stayincalm: I'm not sure where petra is, haven't seen her post in a week or so.

Fay: The water bottles here that I buy are 16 oz., so when I was training myself to drink enough water I made sure that I was drinking at least 4 of those bottles and I kept track of it in my journal. It was hard at first (I was a Mountain Dew junkie). This last week I stopped keeping track because it has become natural for me to reach for a glass of water now instead of other stuff. I have maybe 2 (splenda sweetened) diet cokes in a week, and maybe 1 cup of hot tea a week. 2-3 cups of coffee every morning and everything else I drink is water.

Did my workout at night again and the gym was hot hot hot…bloody sauna. My husband is off work tomorrow so I’m going to go early in the morning and do cardio before the gym heats up. Hopefully no one will be there since it is a national holiday.

this is what i've been doing for the last 2 months:

Breakfast: 1 promax diet shake (10 grams carbs).
1 vitamin supplement
1 tablespoon of cod oil

Lunch: 1 promax diet bar or another shake. Not too often though. i don't feel hungry during lunch anymore so most days i just skip it. lots of water though

dinner: 1 can of sardines right after i get home before dinner. 3 grams of carbs i think.
dinner with either pork, beef or chicken with lots of salad and a bit of salad cream. no idea how many carbs.
maybe the odd peanut here and there.

lots and lots of water. seems to be working.

OJ,

I'm sorry if the things I'm going to say offend you (I'm not trying to!), but I just can't in good conscience continue reading your posts without asking some questions.

You posted in another thread that you had been on induction for 2 months. What plan are you using? If it is Atkins or based off of Atkins (like mine), you need to know that shakes and bars are absolutely not permitted during induction. Actually I've never heard of a low carb plan that allows for shakes during induction. Only foods from the acceptable foods list are permitted. I'm glad for you that you are keeping your carbs to a minimum but you should really be sticking to the guidelines of the plan.

And in another thread you posted that you weren't going to stay low carb forever because you didn't believe it to be a healthy lifestyle. Honestly with a menu like that I could see where you would get that misperception, but low carb does not mean unhealthy.

I eat low carb, mostly whole foods, and have had the best physical/blood workup in years since I began my WoE last May. There are people who have been eating low carb for years, maintaining the weight loss and being checked (with great results!) by physicians. I'm not trying to convert you...okay...maybe I am a bit so I'll get back to my original point here. If you don't believe low carb is healthy, why choose it out of all the other plans out there?

As I told someone else, "The best diet for you is the one that works for you and you can live with for the rest of your life." Dieting yo-yos aren't healthy...and I definitely want to be healthy.

I hope my post and my questions aren't offensive, I'm just confused by some of the things you've posted.

sorry i haven't replied sooner. i for some reason the thread subscription thingy isn't working properly.

Of course i'm not offended in any way. Strange that you would think that really, i read the post three times trying to find something that could be seen as offensive and couldn’t

Well, i never read the mr atkin's book.
i read a lot about how it works though. from what i understood (please forgive and correct me if i'm wrong) you force your body to go into a state of burn fat for energy (both from your food and from your body) instead of burning carbs and storing leftovers as fat. sounded simple enough for me.

I heard of the induction phase and the maintenance phase and all that from the 'proper' atkins diet but i decided just to cut carbs to a minimum, try to eat as little sat. fat as possible and see what happens (i knew i wasn't going to gain weight since it involved reducing calorie count as well.)

I'm a living proof that that works. Nearly 50 pounds lost in 2 months says i'm proof of that went down 2 trouser sizes already . Supposedly a deficit of 500kcal per day will make you lose 1 pound per week or something like that. I was getting at least 1800kcal per day so something else was at work.

That mr. atkins was a pretty smart guy. he truly was a revolutionary.

I actually found that a low carb (and low sat fat) diet was the easiest one to follow and stick to without cheating.

best thing about it? i found that i'm not hungry during the day as i used to be. (even though i keep a small roasted peanut bag and a light low carb tuna meal in my backpack just in case there is a food emergency. There hasn’t been any yet.)

And even on the days that i plan to eat a lot (at a Chinese buffet the other day) for example (don't worry, it was just a meat fest) i couldn't eat more than 2 plates and that was pushing it. This comes from a person who could before eat between 4 and 5 plates, trust me, i may not be an astronaut or a world leader or anything like that, but dammit I CAN EAT! well, could... eat....

the reason why i got so fat in the first place was that i was always exaggerating. if i just kept eating moderately i wouldn't be going through this. i used to be slim believe it or not. when im fiinsh with the diet i'll post some before and after and after again pictures.

I was looking through such pictures recently, i couldn't believe it! i don't notice i'm losing weight when i look at a mirror but i see it in pictures.

I don't plan to stay on a low carb diet after i reach my goal. i already have another (pretty good) plan laid out to maintain my weight after this weight-loss part is over (probably within the next three months or so).

I apologise if I’ve offended anyone by claiming to be on atkins but not following the steps ‘as i should’. Too complicated for me. Simple = good in my head. I bet you folks probably looked at me like some sort of heretic or something. Sorry for not being as clear as i could be about my diet.

Anyway... here i am, strong and immovable in my diet .
i did eat a peach yesterday, for the first time since i started the diet, which was the size of my fist. Soft, ripe perfectly peachy colour, heaven in my hands, just to find out later that it had a least 11 grams of sugar inside. Worth it though. funny are the days i ask (sometimes beg) my wife for a piece or milk chocolate and just as she is about to give it to me, i slap her hand and call her a bad wife for trying to tempt me with forbidden food. Dieting can be lifechanging.

I also found that 85% cocoa chocolate only has like 5 grams of cabs per 20 grams serving. i love that stuff. and the best thing about it is that my wife hates it. so it lasts a long time.

And to everybody who is on any kind of diet, stay strong.

BTW, Where do i get one of them little weight countdown thingies that people have in their signature?
