I've been very low carb/zero carb for 2 weeks. Last night, I had some of my daughter's birthday cake and some ice cream. I'm back on VLC today...might go for zero carb though I have some really good eggs we got at the farm that might make it in...
My foot is aching from beach sprints on Saturday - I need to dial it back and rest. I feel so good on the PB, though, that I just [b]want</b> to be active.
Last night, I had some spinach, EVOO, balsamic, celery, chicken (leg/thigh) and a small bowl of berries and cream with a few handfuls of nuts. A lot more carbs than I've had in two weeks combined. Oh yeah, had two tiny squares of Lindt 99% chocolate.
Today, fasted until lunch around noon. Had a chicken leg/thigh w/ the skin and a whole ribeye (on the bone). The ribeye was cold (cooked it last night but wasn't overly hungry). I also had a tablespoon of coco oil in my roobios tea.
Dinner is maine shrimp (the little ones), zucchini/summer squash sauteed in EVOO or coco oil. I'll probably throw some macadamias on that too and I'll likely add some coco oil to some tea to make sure the meal is fatty enough. I hope that is it...my carb intake has been higher than I want the last two days.
No exercise yesterday. I wasn't going to do anything today, but thinking about some KB work. We'll see. Left foot still aches (badly) from a session of pushups/lunge walks/sprints on the beach saturday. Been icing it.

Took me 16min.
Was doing great yesterday...then meltdown.
Breakfast - none.
Lunch - 3 grass-fed hamburgers, 2 pastured boiled eggs, coconut oil in my tea.
Dinner - grass-fed porterhouse off the grill, bacon, asparagus sauteed in the bacon drippings.
I was full. I also had bought some organic cherries, some macadamia nuts, and some whipping cream at Trader Joe's. Since I bought it, I had that for dessert. I was stuffed and yet...felt compelled...then I ate a bunch of crap, each thing progressively worse. Peanut butter, dark chocolate, some milk chocolate, home made ice cream, TJ's ice cream. What a disaster. Carbs...they do evil things to me, even if they are natural like cherries and macadamias.
Peanut butter is a trigger food. I should have known better. When I eat that, I start binging.
