So far, so good. I have been gluten-intolerant for years so being on a funky diet is not a big deal for me. I am feeling better and seeing results. I am still tracking with my fitness pal every day. I am a pretty active person so I am still eating around 2,000 calories and 110 carbs a day. I’ve discovered some new low carb snacks-
-lightly roasted pumpkin seeds. Delicious, filling, super healthy.
-salad of spinach and hummus for dressing. Again, filling and a decent way to eat hummus without corn chips.
-detour protein bars. I know, protein bars taste a little card-boardy but these aren’t too bad and great on the go.
-fast-food option of a cheeseburger sans bun. You can get it wrapped in lettuce or eat it with a fork.
-filtered, high-protein milk. So good, lactose free, and a lower carb option. I use it to make lattes (so good) and protein shakes.
-dark chocolate. There is no way I am giving it up! Traders Joe’s has an awesome low-carb bar. Even regular 70% chocolate can fit into a low-carb diet. Yay!
…and the old standbys of hard-boiled eggs, cottage cheese, almonds, cheese, and chicken.
I’ve been hitting the gym almost every day too. I mostly focus on training with my body weight (isn’t that usually enough?) or weights really heavy enough to kick my butt.
