Other than Monday (the sort of kind of IPD day), I have had the following:
Tues: B-Generous amount of duck and truffle pâté spread on a few celery sticks
L-Salami slices with mild cheddar (going to go for medium at least next time. My tolerance of mild cheese has gone down)
D-Slow roasted pork belly, green beans w/butter
Snacks-A few cashews, a spoonful of peanutbutter
No caffeine, no Splenda.
Wed: B-Peanut butter spread relatively thinly on celery sticks
Snack- A couple spoonful of Crème fraiche (yeah weird, I know) and a spoonful of peanut butter
I managed to go without caffeine, but I had some Splenda. I am going to aim for moderate amounts of Splenda. I can’t really get into many hot decaf drinks without it. I guess I could buy some decaf coffee, but I don’t really care for it.
I shouldn’t have weighed myself this morning, but I did. I really want to do an official weight loss on Tuesday, so I will reveal if I lost any then. Overall, I’ve felt okay, if a little sleepy without the caffeine. I think I had the worst of the “ketosis flu” yesterday with headaches on and off (but mild ones, not migraine-like–don’t let anyone make you think the adjustment headaches are unbearable). My skin feels incredibly soft. Much softer even than when I do normal low carb. I think it’s because of the amount of water you drink with this and the very high fat levels.
Regarding the Splenda, I don’t see that it’s really not by the book (caution, justification ahead) as they mention it as acceptable if you have to have a sweetener. Then they go on about it being just modified sugar, and how that might affect blood sugar levels. Well, from countless people on BS monitoring who have done low carb, I guess it doesn’t so if we eliminate that concern, there’s just the general concern about Splenda’s safety overall. So, I shall have a bit of Splenda, and I am not cheating. So there.
