Its Monday,..what are you eating today?
 
Thought I'd jump right in and get this thread started today :)

As for me, it will be a DD. I decided to change my schedule from UD/DD to M-W-F = DD and T-TH-Sat = UD. This will work better for me since I'll be rotating shifts at work for the next two weeks.
Oh and I guess Sundays will be a mid-day :dunno:

Anyway,...Coffee, 2 Atkins shakes, veggie soup, plenty of h2o...

Dottie 11-07-2011 03:31 AM

DD for me. I'm going to try and keep it to a fast using broth. If it just have to have something, I'll cook some egg whites.

shari 11-07-2011 03:43 AM

Good morning ladies,
DD- B: not sure yet, may skip.
Baked chicken with cream of mushroom for lunch/dinner.

Star73 11-07-2011 04:50 AM

good morning!

DD for me: Coffee, tons of water, and beef stew.

sazzie 11-07-2011 05:06 AM

Except for liquids, I'm saving most of my calories for a four hour window starting at 4.

broth and water all day
2 c veggie soup
apple
orange
2 oz hamburger
lettuce w/Walden Farms T/I dressing

sophiethecat 11-07-2011 05:55 AM

Good morning! :)

Yesterday's MD turned into an UD so today is either going to be a MD or DD.

B - black coffee

I'm going to try to save the bulk of my calories for this evening and then eat the rest before bed.

betty301 11-07-2011 06:06 AM

Don't forget your veggies!!:cool:

I'm going to make this an UD. Decided to use this time to experiment with loading up on cals the day BEFORE the gym. I was using my gym days as UDs but realized it may work better to have that food energy stored to get me through my workouts instead? I train pretty intensely and I need all the 'energy,' I can get since I can't do energy drinks anymore.

synger 11-07-2011 06:32 AM

UD for me.

Eggs in Kerrygold butter, coffee w/cream for breakfast

Chicken salad planned for lunch

Ribs for dinner, with green beans

A cookie or Hallowe'en candy with lunch or dinner.

Low Carb Librarian 11-07-2011 07:15 AM

DD

I have to go into work early and stay late. I get a 2 hour lunch on a DD...

avecrain 11-07-2011 07:51 AM

Ooooooo, your menu looks nommy! You had me at "Kerrygold". :yummy:

DD for me today, though. I reaaaaaaaally want to break into the 170's this week, so today will be 500 or less. Not a smidgen more. No junky carbs.

B: coffee w/ SF creamer (34)
L: Campbell's lite Italian wedding soup, 1 CocoPop spread w/ a lite laughing cow, topped w/ thin turkey slices, and a SF jello (180)

D: salad w/ thinned homemade blue cheese dressing, FF hot dog on 1/2 slice bread w/ Lite MW and a smear of mustard (149)
S: Dannon lite & fit coconut yogurt (80)

That brings me to 468 for the day, if I have the cocoa. We shall see. :dunno:

1 cup strawberries

Greek chicken w/yogurt(made with olive oil and lemon)

Asparagus
Almonds



I logged what I plan on eating the rest of the day..I need help eating, lol.

Cals- 1430
Protein- 146.8
Net Carbs- 72
Fat- 42

My aim was for 1800 today. 150P/80C/50F
Maybe my cals are low because most of my 'carbs,' are from veggies???

Kissa 11-07-2011 10:50 AM

Too much!

sophiethecat 11-07-2011 10:53 AM

So far I've had 75% of the bag of broccoli & cauliflower, 1 c. Imagine No-Chicken broth, 4 oz. red raspberries.

144 calories and I'm full enough for now.

Drinking coffee, diet sodas, etc.

Kissa 11-07-2011 11:01 AM

I must get some celery. I really love it.

Dottie 11-07-2011 11:13 AM

Kissa I'd forgotten how much I like celery and carrots because they were always "diet" foods on low fat, then on low-carb carrots were off limits lol.

Nik Nik 11-07-2011 12:50 PM

DD today...

B- Shake - 100
L - Shake - 100
D- Small Salad with Egg, Broccoli, spinach and thousand island dressing - maybe Bleu cheese

Should be under 600 for the day....

I really wanted just BBQ chicken with spinach salad, but I think that's just pushing it...

Saving my chicken for tomorrow to be safe...

You can do it, Nik Nik!! I'm on a DD today too, so I'm kinda wishing i had a little more exciting goods to eat today, too. You're gonna reap big benefits on that scale before you know it, though!! :high5:

I think my UD/DD calories need adjusting...

I'm going to try to stay at 500 and then stay below 1500 for my UD tomorrow and see what that does....my UD cals calculate to be 2212...or maybe I'm just not hitting that close enough???

Man, this is getting tricky...LOL...that sounds sooooo high!!! But I know how important it is to reach that ceiling...maybe it's just my UD calories that are too low....

The JUDDD website says:
DD- 442
UD - 2212

What would you do?? Everyone chime in here...I'm working out 3 days a week...cardio and light weights....

Dottie 11-07-2011 01:05 PM

I wouldn't drop your up days that low. There's a reason they're called UP days :) Maybe try for 1900-2000?

I really have got to get rid of the fear of too MANY calories....I cut them so low because over 2000 just seemed too much...

Alright...ready to hit this week with both fists!! I'm knocking FAT OFF my body!!!!

And I will EAT and enjoy my UD's...calories and all!!:cool:

Dottie 11-07-2011 01:13 PM

Beeb 11-07-2011 03:16 PM

DD for me!

B...1 slice rye toast and 1/4 cup egg beaters

L....2 TBS 0% greek yogurt, 2 tbls pumpkin spice granola, 1 tbs WF caramel sauce

S....Bagel thin with 1/2 serving FF Cream Cheese, FF half and half throughout the day in my tea/coffee

Total so far 476 Calories. I have up to 900 but I'm just not that hungry today, so I may have a 100 or so more calorie snack later before bed and call it a day!

Dottie 11-07-2011 03:58 PM

I ended up having about 50cals of soup today, then got hungry and cut a low-carb pita into 8, split those and made 16 "chips" spritzed w/pam olive oil, a little salt and baked and had some salsa to dip them in.
So about maybe 160 cals today with coffee and almond milk added in.
A good DD :)
