I gave up chocolate and kept my carbs under 30 for 6 of the past 7 days. I ate zero Atkins products. On Tuesday (9/24/13) I ate 63 carbs! Most of it chocolate. Luckily enough I made a quick recovery and finished strong with 22 carbs on Sunday. This week's loss proves that going back to basics is a strategy that works well for me. I need to remember that when I have disappointing weight loss IS IT PROBABLY DUE TO PUTTING THE WRONG, OR WRONG AMOUNTS, OF FOOD IN MY MOUTH.
Today I got risky and had my first Quest Bar, a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor bar. People seem to be raving about this brand and I have to admit..IT WAS DELICIOUS. I had read the reviews and it seemed unanimous that the bar needed to be warmed up. I nuked it for about 15 seconds. I was shocked at how delicious it was. I had originally planned to just eat half the bar but I devoured the whole thing. YUM. Quest says it is 3 carbs. I am counting 4 and holding my breath to see what happens on the scale tomorrow. I have never had luck with "fake sugar" type things so I am really anxious to see how my body is going to react to this. Wouldn't it be great if it didn't stall me at all?
