I imput my food and even without knowing what I'm having for dinner, my calories are still low, so I switched the soup to a snack, added poke for lunch, and added a serving of pudding as a snack and I'm still really low on calories. I hope I have a good dinner! lol!

kel7298 11-18-2011 07:43 AM

UD here..with moderation. I am aiming for under 1600

mttemple4 11-18-2011 09:05 AM

It's my first ever down day (and yes, I need to get on track to make Thanksgiving an UD :laugh:). As someone who always had problems staying within the calories pre low carb, I'm fascinated to see how this goes over for me. About to eat lunch now but the day is planned out and so far so good. Aiming for 600 and this is 590. :)

B: one slice bacon, one egg, two egg whites, 1/2 cup fresh baby spinach
L: big mac bowl: 3 cups iceberg lettuce, 2 oz Laura's Lean beef, one slice american cheese, pickles, and "special sauce" of light mayo, Nature's Hollow sugar-free ketchup, and sugar free relish.
D: chicken breast, shirataki noodles, laughing cow "sauce" + snow peas

Also just made gluc pudding for the first time.

UD for me!!

Gonna get a good majority of my calories today from nuts!! :) ( been craving nuts)

ANYWAY, I just roasted some pecans and walnuts in the oven. Used splenda and little cayenne pepper. I added some cashews and smoked almonds to the mix afterward . I tried to make a version of those spicy holiday nuts,..can't remember exactly what they are called tho :dunno:

Anyway, that and a nice chef salad is on my agenda..

kel7298 11-18-2011 12:32 PM

Today's lunch was 3 chicken tamales...

unfortunately when I looked up their caloric value my mouth dropped

EKKKK!!!

each one had 236 calories for a total of 708 (if I had only known before hand, I wouldn't have had that 3rd one)

2muchme 11-18-2011 01:16 PM

DD. Had my usual coffee with almond milk, water, mac n' cheese with miracle noodles, and a bowl of veggies with chicken broth. So, maybe 150 so far and (at 4PM) still have 350 to go if I need it. We'll see. :)

My DH makes those homemade sometimes. The corn shell is made with corn meal and lard. :hyst:

I know last time he made them I absolutely could not stick to lowcarb until those suckers were all eaten. :love: They are especially good covered in homemade queso.

Maybe today should be a medium day for you...:dunno:

Piccina 11-18-2011 01:40 PM

DD for me... coffee, coffee, coffee so far. Coffee is my best friend. :P I usually don't eat on my down days until before I go to bed as I can't sleep when I'm hungry and 300 calories is a pretty measly amount to spread out accross the day, haha!

You sound like me. I have a hard time falling asleep when my stomach is grumbling! Wanted to point out that they suggest a DD calorie limit of 500 regardless of the numbers calculated on the various websites. Having said that, I try to keep mine down to 300-350 myself. I figure if I'm going to do it I may as well give it my all!! Just didn't know if you knew about the 500 calorie thing or not. You have room for play - well, a little anyway. :p

I can't even imagine how many calories with queso on top :confused:

I didn't know it was 500 for everyone! That's why I hate being short, and on a diet... if I was a little taller I'd get to eat more!! Glad to know I have a little leway if I ever go a bit over.

jandjsmom 11-18-2011 02:38 PM

julietcc 11-18-2011 06:11 PM

It was an up day for me and I landed at 1903 calories. I ate some baaad things.

Coffee with half and half, plain yogurt with capella banana drops and splenda, a breakfast burrito, a piece of chocolate cake, a brownie, and 2 pieces of pepperoni pizza :stars:

I'm actually looking forward to a healthier DD tomorrow when I'll probably eat chicken vegetable soup all day. :)

Sandelio 11-18-2011 06:15 PM

LOL! That's funny Julie - Thursday was a wonderful UD for me with lots of good stuff, but I gotta say at the end of the day I was LOOKING FORWARD to Friday when I wouldn't have to eat so much!

Wow. Did those words really just come out of my mouth?!?!?!

julietcc 11-18-2011 06:18 PM

I know, Sandy. I ate all of this before 1:00 even and I'm still full! There's no way I'm eating anything else today.

sophiethecat 11-18-2011 06:18 PM

It's been a weird UD for me. I keep thinking I'm on a DD for some reason! I still haven't reached 1000 calories yet, so if I don't, I'm going to make this a MD because I need tomorrow to be an UD - really a FD with Tgiving eating going on!! :jumpjoy:

Sounds like a good plan to me!
