I need some input on my meal
« on: January 02, 2014, 09:21:12 PM »
I would like to have some input on my meals for today.

Breakfast 
      2 eggs    0 carbs
      2 slices of turkey bacon 0 carbs
      16 oz water

mid morning  snack
     1/2 oz bbq pork rinds    0 carbs
     1 mild cheddar string cheese  0 carbs
     drank 16 oz water

Lunch
      1 slice of American cheese   0 carbs
      1/4 cup pecans (that's the only kind of nuts I had)  2 carbs
      16 oz unstweet tea

Dinner
      1/2 roasted chicken seasoned with butter injection, mccormick meat tenderizer
                 and Luizanne Cajun seasoning. 0 (not including seasonings)
      1/2 cup boiled cabbage seasoned with 2 tbls butter, salt and pepper  1 1/2 carb
      16 oz unsweet tea

snack 1/2 cup strawberry jello  0 carb
          topped with redi whip  1 carb

My husband does most of the cooking so the amounts ingredients used on the chicken I have no idea how much.

I am new to this so if I calculated everything right I have figured 5 carbs for the whole day. This doesn't include the ingredients for the chicken. Please comment on if I have done this right or not and what I need to do. Thanks for your input.

Thanks Doug, I didn't know if it was too few carbs or not. There is no way I could have eaten anymore than that. Is it normal to feel sluggish? I started on the first and today I am feeling really tired and feel like I don't want to do anything. Is that a normal feeling?

Hi, Pam! :)

You're off to a great start! ;D ;D ;D
The only thing I would do different is drink more water later in the day.
Water will help you IMMENSELY along your FTS journey.

You are feeling sluggish because your body has started to adjust to low carb eating.
We call the adjustment period "Sugar Detox" and usually lasts from about 10 days to 2 weeks.

When I went through detox, not only was I tired with headaches,
but my stomach and lower GI were a mess, too. :P
It was a tough time for me!... But our FTS family helped me get through it. :) :) :)

As you go through your detox period, be prepared for VERY strong urges for carbs.
By keeping low carb snacks (e.g sugar free hard candy or gum) at hand AT ALL TIMES,
you'll be able to deal with it well.

Tony
What you do today is what matters!

Good job!!  If your GI is sluggish you will be too.  Just a thought... But yes I agree it's probably detox. ;)
