I've been on a weight-loss mission for almost twelve days now. "Almost" because there were some days when I went over my carb intake. For example, the other night, I indulged myself to a taco salad after having a hearty but healthy broiled salmon dinner. I am slowly (painfully slow) losing those unwanted pounds although I still have a looooonnnnng way to go before I reach my ideal weight.
When I am on diet, I prefer eating at home when I can prepare my own food. Dining out is just a good excuse to break my diet. When I do the grocery, I am very particular about the amount of carbs in the food I choose, and I make sure that I buy only those which are carb-friendly. I am glad that I can still endulge in my favorite comfort food - chocolate through Carbsmart's chocolate ice cream bar. It may not be as rich and delicious as Haagen Dazs but it is friendly to my abs and thighs.
So what did I prepare for lunch today?
I stir fried some broccoli, red and yellow peppers, carrots, celery, sugar snap peas and tofu (firm) in szechuan sauce.
I also prepared deviled eggs (substituted pepper for paprika).
Juice is pineapple-orange flavored Crystal Light (0 carbs) and dessert is CarbSmart chocolate ice cream bar (3 net grams).
Who says you can't have fun while you're on diet?
