Way too much time on my hands!
It's WEDNESDAY: What are you Eating?
OK, just getting the thread for today started.
I still have to plan my DD menu for today. LOL So far I've just had three mugs of coffee with 2 tbsp. of half & half in each of them.
I just haven't been too hungry yet today, and then distracted playing on the computer and this site and running a couple of errands.
Off to plan a menu for the rest of the day.

So this is day 1 for me and an up day. I let myself have some carbs I don't generally allow and I'm a little freaked out. Kinda scared to see what the scale will say in the morning, but I know it'll mainly be water weight. Fingers crossed!
I have 100 calories left to spend, but I feel stuffed. Probably the carbs!
B: Coffee egg cream
L: Small helping of lentils with quinoa & water
S: Pumpkin Smoothie
D: Hamburger with cheese in a low carb whole wheat flour tortilla & water
S: Flaxmeal muffin w/ almond butter & water
Total calories & carbs: 1647/50

My snack this evening will be coconut bark and a quarter cup mixed nuts. About 400 cals
I hit about 1750 today, 35 net carbs, 150 grams protein and 120 grams of fat.
Awesome numbers for me! I should be in ketosis but I don't have strips and I drink so much water that my pee is really diluted. I think I did notice a faint metallic smell this morning. Ketosis never helped my appetite or energy like some people but my carbs have been really low. I'm still preparing to do thisrefeed Friday. If it all works like it should I should do a refeed every 7 to 10 days. I'm hoping it works. I really want to keep the muscle I'm building but lose some body fat. I was down to 143 this moring! I was so happy. Beeb our stats are so much alike. I wouldlove to get to 140 but if I don't I'm happy here.
