Default Food Log - Nov 3-9th

Getting us started again!

Jamie - My daily foods are pretty much the same on induction! Lots of eggs and either sausage or bacon in the mornings. SOmetimes an omlete with Spinach, garlic and parmasian cheese.

Lunch is usually a salad of some sort, eggsalad, tunasalad, shrimp salad, taco salad, sometimes I fry up a small steak and dice it and put it on my lettuce!

Dinner is usually meat, poultry or fish with steamed veggies. SInce I have a small family ( Dh and 2 kids ages 5 and 7) I add potatos, or rice for them...

Snacks are pork rinds, hard boiled eggs, chicken vienna sausages, olives, sometimes celery with cream cheese (Helps a lot with constipation!!

Hope that helps! And WELCOME!!!

Okay, Since I'm just starting, I'm open to some gentle feedback or advice if you guys wouldn't mind.

Brkfst- 2 string cheeses

Lunch- 2 cans white tuna in water with 1.5 tbsp mayo, 1 stalk celery, 1 spear dill pickle and 1/4 cup cheese all mixed up (Yum!)

dinner- 2 cups of jumbo shrimp and about 1/4 cup butter for dipping.

Snack- 2 better with cheddar hot dogs

About 85-90oz of water and I've got a few more hours before bed.

One hard spot for me is that my work schedule changes every week. This week I work 3pm-11pm, next week its 11pm to 7am and so on. It's hard to get on a normal eating routine. I never know when I'm supposed to be hungry so I compensate by being hungry all the time. Not on Atkins though. If anything I'm having a hard time getting enough in.
Have a great day tomorrow.!!!

Monday -

Breakfast:
2 decaf w/splenda (the warm felt good on my throat) - 2
String cheese - 1
2 oz beef jerky - 2

Lunch:
2 slices low carb pizza - 8

Dinner:
1 slice low carb pizza - 4

Total - 17

Ok, not the most diversified day as far as food goes but I'm sick! I was actually only eating because I'm using zinc lozenges and zinc makes me very ill if I don't have something in my stomach. Also, I'd like to point out how nicely spread out my carbs are

And finally a big big thank you to Froufy! Thanks to you, dear, I am down to 1 packet of splenda in 20 ounces of decaf! Woo hooo!

...except for Star cuz she's sick - but no excuses for anyone else (unless you have a written note from your Mother).

Jamie - your eating looks good, except for the "veggies comment" as well - at least 2 cups of salad and 1 cup other veggies, or 3 cups salad PER DAY!

Breakfast:
3 atkins mini muffins (3)
decaf w/cream (2)
=5

Lunch (from cafeteria)...
Lucky me - chicken legs cacciatore (scraped off some of the tomato sauce) (3)
double spinach w/butter - hold the rice (1)
sf jello (.1)
=4.1

Snack:
1 oz cheese (.3)
2 oz macadami nuts (4.7)
=5

Dinner:
chicken (0)
mayonnaise (1)
celery (1)
yogurt w/sf sauce (5)
=7

21.1 total carbs - may have a decaf w/cream later!

Default Wednesday

Not as healthy as I thought this morning. So back on sugar free cough syrup and drops. (sigh)

Breakfast:
Very bad decaf w/splenda - 1
String cheese - 1

Lunch:
Clam chowder - 6.5

Dinner:
Out to mongolian grill - 5

Total - 13.5

Ugh! I need to eat more, but it's hard when I don't feel good. I'll try adding some snacks in to keep the ol' metabolism revving. I've been upping my liquids and am trotting down to the bathroom frequently enough that I should have shed 2 pounds by tomorrow.

Froufy?! Why wicked Wednesday? It didn't seem so bad unless you gorged at supper. Sounded like a lovely day to me. But then again, I am new to it all.

Weird day.

B- 2 string cheese
L- Tuna with 2 cups romaine lettuce cut up in it
1 pickle spear
Mayo
1/2 cup cheese

D- 2 hamburger patties w/ cheese
2 cups broccoli sauteed with
3 slices bacon covered with
1/4 cup mozzarella

Made myself eat the dinner even though not hungry. The one thing about this WOE is that there is very little pre-prepared stuff. It takes time and effort which I haven't had much of lately. I'm off tomorrow though.

Going to get MRI's of my knees because of the bad pain and pressure. Wish me luck. I hope they find something concrete and fixable.

We're all going to have wonderful days on Thurs.
:P

Default Almost Friday!!!

I'm finding that I do better on my eating if I plan it in the morning, so I'm posting the plan and will update if it changes.

Breakfast:
Decaf and sugarfree irish cream - 0
1/2 low carb bagel (not so good) - 1

Snack (on Froufy's advice):
String cheese - 1

Lunch:
Steak (DH wants to cook) - 0
Handful of snap peas - 1

Snack:
Pepperoni slices (again, on Froufy's advice) - 0

Dinner:
Trying for the BBQ chicken again - 0
Broccoli cole slaw - 3

Total - 6

Trying to add snacks in, but the lack of weight loss makes me lose my appetite. I'm adding 500 mg of L-carnitine in my daily regimen starting today to see if that helps.

Does anyone know if Perrier counts as water or non water? It's lightly carbonated so I don't know if it should count as part of my water intake.
