I love bread and pasta and sugar and all the bad things and I have made an effort to reduce the amounts that I have been eating too. But I think I need to cut out a bit more!
Looking at my food report for the last month, I averaged about 175 NET carbs a day. (193 non-net) with my lowest days, being just over 100 and highest in the 300 range!
Last night for dinner I had a salmon fillet, half a cup of quinoa, and a cup of black bean and corn salad. It was a large plate of food. An hour or two later, I was hungry. I wasn't thirsty, I had drank 100 oz of water already. I shouldn't have been hungry! There is no reason I should have been hungry after that!
I think it is finally starting to sink in that some (many? most?) carbs make me more hungry. I mean I knew
that they can do that, I and I think I have even come to my own personal realization about this before... but I think I just might be starting to GET IT!
whole wheat bread doesn't seem to bother me too much. Rice does. And either the beans, corn, or quinoa did it to me last night.
Here is my question to you all who have been doing this for a while...
Am I foolish to think that keeping my carb intake to UNDER 100g a day, would be beneficial or do I need to go way lower than that to make a difference?
My averages of fat intake for the last month was 60g a day, and protein was about 85g day. I know that I will need to up these if I want to reduce carbs.
I really don't want to eliminate the foods I enjoy completely... I don't think I would be able to keep that up for long.
