So, I survived my first day, yesterday. I kept myself super busy and was surprised that I was able to stay on track and not feel tired. My mind did not have a lot of time to wander into the carb zone, lol. I even bypassed my treat at night. I estimated via Sparkpeople.com that I ate just over 1200 calories but the amazing thing was that in all of those calories only 7 grams were sugar and about 28 grams were carbs. Amazing. I will admit my fat grams were up higher that I am supposed to ingest but it was healthy fats except for the bit of butter I had with my dinner, but I will keep an eye on my fat intake and be more selective when it comes to eating it.
I do miss my morning Ezekiel Sprouted grain bread and my daily Banana (dear, sweet banana, you are dearly missed, sigh).
I know this is not forever but I am going to do this for at least 2 weeks and see how it goes. I ordered Jorge Cruise's older book combo "The Belly Fat Cure & Carb & Sugar Counter"
