Slow-Carb Diet Update–Day 7

January 16th, 2011

 

I think I’m going to start posting some details about the progress of my diet through the course of it as this sort of info might be helpful to others.   I had my 1st “bing” day yesterday, which is sanctioned by the diet.  I decided to try to go full bore and see how it effected me.  My breakfast consisted of:

  • waffles
  • fried chicken
  • 2x sausage & egg sandwiches
  • grits (didn’t like it, didn’t eat much) – how are these supposed to be eaten?
  • 2x 16oz glasses of sweet tea

 

As good as it tasted, it made me feel horrible for the rest of the day.  I had a headache and my body hurt.  It’s amazing how bad sugar is for you.  The evening was filled with more goodness including crab cakes, bolgogi beef, chicken meatballs, pan-fried mac and cheese balls, shrimp with bacon, sausage burgers, beer, wine, bourbon.   The results:

Now, if the diet works, by Tuesday I should return to my post-binge weight.  Sarah and I went to Safeway (how I hate that place) and I bought more veggies than I ever had before in my life.  Trying to follow the paradigm of “use bag of frozen veggies” just didn’t cut it and I need to get some variety.  So for lunch I had two “slow-carb” burritos that consisted of a large piece of lettuce, layer of refried beans, garlic pulled pork from last week, sautéed green beans/onions/garlic/spring onions, peppercinis, avocado, and habanero salsa (finally found a safeway salsa that I liked).  And it was really good – I didn’t miss the bread at all.  

 

I’m really enjoying the cooking that I’m doing for this diet, as I’m usually too lazy to cook.  I’ve found it’s been a lot better on the wallet but a huge pain in the ass to clean up.  The dishwasher runs like 2x/day now. 

 

And tonight – safeway had a great sale on Dungenous crab  — so I’m going to try to make a crab salad with homemade mayo (all the stuff in the store had some sugar added).   I’ll probably add some bacon to it as well.
