Recently I read an article that said if you severely limit your carb intake (little to none) for 48 hours straight, then it will cause a metabolic boost that will help loose weight the rest of the week.
This seemed like a workable plan for me. I figured two days without bread, sugar and starch would be better than what I had been doing, so there could only be a healthy consequence by trying this plan.
Last week was Week #1. My two carb-less days went ok, however, by day #3 I was seriously starving. We celebrated the accomplishment with a trip to the donut shop…..sigh.
Realizing that my Overly-carb’d Day #3 absolutely busted any progress I had made with Day #1 and #2, I remained determined to keep trying this plan.
Today is Day #1, Week #2. So far, we have had watermelon for breakfast, and a grilled chicken/avocado salad for lunch (no dressing). Tonight I plan on making an egg omelet. It’s not a perfect no carb day, but very close.
Tomorrow, what will be have to look forward to? Eggs, meat, some veggies. I will admit I’m not very excited at eating the same thing again. I like variety. There’s not many foods that I don’t like, and so I want to eat them all! (thus, my growing weight problem)
Do any of you have any no/very very low carb recipes? I’m also looking for an internet link to a simple fruit/veggie list and each one’s carb counts. I sure could use some ideas to keep this going!
