Low Carb week, Day 7

With this post 7 of my little series I reached ‘the end’ (Previous posts in this new series can be found here post #1, post #2, post #3, post #4, post #5, post #6) But I will probably do one or two days more, since the previous two days wasn’t that low carb. It sounds a bit as if I will stop on low carb but that’s not the case. I have been on low carb for a long time and I see the results and surely I will continue. I will also continue with low carb posts from time to time, but let’s get to today first. So this was my day 7 in my little series; Sunday the 14th of December 2014.

Low Carb week, Day 6

So day 6 of my little series, Saturday the 13th of December, 2014. (Previous posts in this new series can be found here post #1, post #2, post #3, post #4, post #5)

I was about to change the title of this post to High Carb instead of Low Carb but then realized that it wasn’t THAT bad (for a low carb’er it was bad). I just came across this The Recommended Amount & Percent of Carbohydrates Per Day

For example, if you eat a 2,000-calorie diet, shoot for 225 to 325 grams of carbs per day; and if you eat 2,500 calories a day, aim for 281 to 406 grams of carbs. Adults who drop their intake to 1,200 calories a day for weight loss need about 50 percent of their calories from carbs, or 150 grams per day.

Then my 211 carbs for Saturday almost seems low carb ;-)  So lets have a look.

Low Carb week, Day 4

Day 4 in my little series of low carb eating. Thursday the 11th of December, 2014. (Previous posts in this new series can be found here post #1, post #2, post #3) Breakfast Today I took my time for an omelet, again with 2 eggs and ham, tomato, spinach (lots) and bacon. I do sometimes end up with omelet with so much spinach that I can't fold them but then I just call them 'open omelet'. Lunch I cut some chicken…

Low Carb week, Day 3

Another day, another Low Carb day. Wednesday the 10th of December, 2014. (Previous posts in this new series can be found here post #1, post #2) Breakfast I was in a bit of hurry this morning, so no cooking. Just some low carb müsli/cereal. I used to eat normal müsli/cereal a lot in the past but strangely enough I don't miss it but I have to admit, sometimes it is nice to get something else that omelet, also something quicker. So…

Low Carb week, Day 2

Let's get right to it. Todays meals, actually, yesterdays meal :-) (First post in this new series can be found here post #1) Breakfast As so often I started the day with an omelet for breakfast. This time with 2 eggs with some sweet pepper mixed into it. Some chicken from yesterday, cheese and a fried tomato. Lunch For lunch I had a pre-made salad with me, often I try to avoid these as I think it is crazy how much plastic…

Low Carb week, Day 1

Since I have been on low carb diet for quiet some time now I thought it would be an idea to share information about what I do eat during a normal week. So for the next week I will do a daily blog entry with photos of the meals and some nutrition information, as well as other comments ;-) Not planning any receipts but I will mention what is in the various meals.

As mention in the previous post I track all meals with MyFitnessPal.com (Their iOS app), so end of each day I will be able to share the daily nutrition overview. Whenever I ‘end’ the day with the app it will tell me how my weight will be in 5 weeks, if every day was like the day I just ended. I had have some cases where it didn’t allow me to finish the day, as I didn’t eat enough calories, even had one warning about starvation mode. Feels pretty strange when that shows up, as I never feel hungry at the end of the day.

So let’s get started.

Health Tracking

Track it

I have for quiet some time been tracking exercise, weight, food intake and other health related data. I’m also putting data into a journal, typical me some would say. Putting as much as possible into spreadsheets but that’s just what I like to do ;-) So let me sum up what tools I have been using for tracking data.

Weight loss #3

This series of posts started with the Bet (The bet was that I could loose 5 kg within 2.5 month, and stay below that weight) and then the follow-up after I reached the goal. I can't continue with Phase #2 #3 as the bet is over and done (Still need to get paid in Pizza and beer). So introducing the weight loss series. Starting with part 3. Summary Early August I was at around 95.5 kg (Spiked at 97 kg)…

Bet won, phase 1

Weight loss / the bet Early August I did a bet with a friend of mine (see previous post here) that involved me dropping 5 kg in weight. I had until end of October for this. Well, now we are around one month into the bet, so I thought I better give an update. Short version: Bet won I have for a few days now been below 90 kg (lowest 88.8 kg) so I consider the first phase of the…
