It’s been almost a year since I started on this low-carb “journey.”
Initially I wanted to go back to a low GI “diet” as recommended by my doctor.
I also wanted a way to stop mindlessly eating the kid’s leftovers and snacks. Again, PLEASE consult your doctor before starting any new eating plan and remember, not every diet* is going to work for every body.
There was a point SIX months in where I hit a wall, remember?
That was due to the fact that I was pretty much doing Keto and NOT low-carb, which was NOT my intentional in the slightest.
Since I do like to strength train and wanted to feel good in my workouts, I upped the carbs a bit more.My main “carb” sources come from plenty of fruit (mainly berries and green apples), tomatoes, cucumbers, RX bars, Brussel sprouts, beans, cauliflower [wraps or rice] and almond flour (like from Siete Chips or Birch Blenders).Right now my macros are about 20-25% carbs, which is still lower carb.
Just obviously not as low as the initial 10-15% I set out to do.I feel way better.
I also feel less foggy after breakfast which is quite nice.I’ll have to do an updated “what I eat post” soon for y’all, so stay tuned.
Until then, remember to take it one day at a time.-Sabs
