My journal

November 24th was day 1 of low carb. I was initially just eating low carb items but not really counting exactly how many carbs i had.

but today i want to start a journal of how many carbs i am actually eating.

so today i had :
some coffee = 0 carbs
creamer = 6 carbs

chicken = 0 carbs
butter = 0 carbs
red pepper flakes = 0 carbs

so, so far today all i have had is 6 carbs which i am ok with because i need creamer in my coffee otherwise it is gross to me yuck! lol


i wanted to start keeping track of the carbs i am having so i truly know how many carbs i am actually taking in. i mean, i know for the last 2-3 weeks i have been eating all low carb stuff, but i dont know if i ever hit over 20 carbs a day. i am going to stick to 20 carbs a day for a few weeks before increasing.

ok well i am going to finish my coffee and then off i go to work out downstairs on the treadmill...

so i went onto chipotles website and i had 2 of those dishes and i rounded it up to 22 carbs from that meal...it could be less because i didnt have the full size of the servings they listed but i would rather round up than round down...so from those 2 meals about 22 carbs + the 6 carbs from the creamer i had this morning with the coffee so a total of 28 carbs today...not too shabby

i just found out that eggs have 0.6 carbs per egg that being said i had 1.8 carbs for breakfast and 4 carbs with my coffee making that a total of5.8 carbs...then for a snakc i had a low carb wrap with about 4 oz of cheese ...so the wrap has 4 net carbs and the cheese about 4 carbs...so ive had a total of 13.8 carbs today... a bit higher than what i anticipated..i shouldnt have had that wrap with cheese...oops i forgot to had a half gram of carbs from the sour cream i had...so that means 14.3 carbs...meaning i technically have only 6.7 carbs left in my day. i really wanted to make a low carb pizza...i will see about that one :-/

whole pizza= 3 eggs (1.8) did 16 carbs of shredded cheese as crust....then i will have to do the sauce, which i will measure out, and then add more cheese on top along with the pepperoni... sauce = 2.5 cups =30 carbs extra cheese = 1.5 cups italian cheese blend = 18 carbs and 1 cup other cheese = 4 carbs pepperoni = 0 carbs so WHOLE PIZZA = 67.8 CARBS
