So, yesterday went well, I had a headache but I can’t really say that one day without carbs did that. I did some shopping so I have some low carb food to eat today. I felt like an idiot walking around the grocery store reading the back of everything I picked up – such is live on a diet though. No matter what diet you’re doing, it’ll almost certainly involve a lot of nutritional information reading!
So I started today off with some bacon and eggs. 1/3 of a pound of bacon and 4 eggs to be exact. The bacon has no carbs in it. When shopping, make sure to read the nutritional information on your bacon!!! Many kinds of bacon are either maple flavored or sugar cured – these will have carbs. There are about 0.6 grams of carbs in an egg, so 4 x 0.6 gives me about 2.5 grams of carbs there. I’m also using sugar reduced ketchup with 1 gram of carbs per tbsp. I guesstimate that I have about 2 tbsp here, so I’ll count that as 2 grams of carbs. Bringing this amazing breakfast up to 4.5 grams of carbs. Tabasco Sauce has zero carbs, so load up on that when you can!!
Reduced sugar ketchup is amazing. In my opinion it tastes better than regular ketchup, and with less sugar it’s a viable option for a low carb diet. I can’t find it at any local grocery stores, so I buy it from thelowcarbgrocery.com. They have some pretty amazing options for low carb diets and for those counting calories as well.
