Example Low Carb Day

Hello everyone!

My sweet sister asked for an example of what I would normally eat on a low-carb day, so I thought I’d just post it here for ease.  Please remember I haven’t been doing this very long, so this is just a snapshot at the stuff I’ve come up with so far!  Since I’m a woman, I shoot for 5 meals, 3 hours apart, around 1200 calories total. (Men shoot for 1500 calories total)  Remember too that it is low carb not no carb.  Don’t get all crazy out there peeps!

Breakfast:

1 egg + 2 egg whites, scrambled with green and red peppers and onion, with 2% shredded cheese.

1 (6 oz.) Carbmasters yogurt

1 clementine

Snack:

Protein shake (1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder, spinach, carrots, and ice…blend)

Lunch:

Tuna fish on celery

1/2 cup nuts/seed mixture

raw vegetables

Snack:

celery with peanut butter

string cheese

Dinner:

Baked chicken (or pork, or tofu in stir fry…) and mixed vegetables (as many colors as possible)

Key Lime Carbmasters yogurt for dessert

I haven’t had a problem hitting my calorie mark because nuts are high calorie so I just add or subtract them to get me to where I need to be.  I’m glad to not eat this way everyday, I certainly enjoy my whole wheat English muffin the next morning on high carb day!  This plan makes it easier for me to stick with it thought since it is always changing.  Along with my workouts I’m seeing results, hope you are too!  Happy weekend…Sunday is free day!
