ONE YEAR IN; Low Carb Lifestyle.

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.

My goal was to just try a lower carb lifestyle which seemed to pair well with eating foods on the low glycemic index. I wanted to see how I’d feel, especially with my digestive issues.

I also wanted a way to stop mindlessly eating the kid’s leftovers and snacks. wp-1658154335523Again, PLEASE consult your doctor before starting any new eating plan and remember, not every diet* is going to work for every body.

Okay, so;

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.wp-1661079254047My 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).wp-1629052236061.jpgRight 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.20220609_075526I feel way better.

I STILL can’t believe it took me this long to eat the way I should have been eating, low GI and such. Since [re]starting this “diet, my digestion is better plus I feel WAY less bloated.

I also feel less foggy after breakfast which is quite nice.wp-1663861070810I’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.wp-1663705094002-Sabs🌿
