Morning weight was 266.4.
The previous day ( which I did not have time to document) showed me at 1300 calories and 45 net carbs.
I think I can attribute a lot of my nearly 12 pound loss to portion control rather than low carb as I’ve been (on the whole) better at reducing the overall amount of food I’ve eaten than at choosing low carb foods.
For example: I ate a baked yam – no butter or other flavors added – at midnight as I had to work (don’t ask).
I have a sneaking suspicion that, at least for me, a small amount of carbs might be OK as long as I rigidly adhere to portion control – and portion control is easier without carbs because carbs make me hungry.
On this particular Wednesday I did the daytime in what is becoming the norm: coffee and Atkins shakes. This isn’t proving a big deal – I’m kinda used to it.
When I got home there were 2 hot dogs and cheese on a single bun, 1/2 peanut butter(!) and jelly sandwich on a single piece of bread, a fat slice of tomato. and a slice of Margherita pizza my daughter ordered.
A few glasses of MiO-flavored water also accompanied dinner.
The guesstimate for the day was:
Net carbs: 86g
