Weighing in at 218.5 this morning, a pound down from my restart yesterday. Could be a scale fluctuation, but I'm hoping it's water retention loss. Met all my Sunday goals which were an effort to try to break my recent reinstated carb addiction.
Don't know if the gnawing and burning sensation in my stomach last night was from too much fiber (my target is 25g and I achieved 41g) or whether it was phychological. I do recall mentioning in a mid-day post yesterday that I felt deprived, so maybe it WAS psychological. Anyway, a snack of turkey sausage and string cheese relieved the evening burning and gnawing sensation bringing my totals for the day to all green numbers of:
1540 calories, 9% of total calories as sat fat, 14.9g carbs less fiber, 41g fiber, 133g protein, 165mg cholesterol.
Based on yesterday's experiment, my goals this week will be rigid, but only temporary to break my carb addiction:
3 low carb, vitamin fortified protein shakes as small meal replacements before dinner
Low carb, on-plan dinner
Evening snack of solid food protein and fat such as meat and cheese

Carbs less fiber limit 20g (usually is 25g)

Veggies/fruit 4-5 servings
Exercise 5 times
