How low can you go!?! (Challenge/Contest)
« on: August 14, 2012, 11:24:40 AM »
I need to get the weight loss moving in the right direction again, so I'm starting a new contest/challenge! Basically I want to see how low in carbs we can eat for a week or more if you'd like to do that!!

If you'd like to join this challenge, post your menu, at the end of each day, including everything that you put into your mouth and how much you eat along with the carbs that you counted for those things! (ex: 6 (or however many you eat) cheddar pork rinds - 0 carbs OR 1 cup unsweetened almond milk - 0 carbs, etc.) Also make sure you include how many ounces of water you drink during the day!!!

This accountability of posting what I eat really helps me to get back on track and start seeing the pounds drop off again! I don't know about you, but "carb creep" has begun happening in my house mostly with my portions getting larger than they should be!!

So join me in getting back on track and let's see how low you can go!!!  ;D

Do you have Doug's Carb and Sugar Counter?  I have been looking through it to find green beans (fresh from the garden today).  1/2 cup is 2.9 g of carbs and 3/4 tsp of sugar.  Last week I ate two bowlfuls with cornbread a definate no no.  I will definately watch my portion size.  One cup.  They are just so good!  I do have a secret recipe for you and your contest.  You would be suprised how many time sodium is a culprit.  Drink this for a week and you could lose up to 5 pounds.
                                           
                                                         16 oz of water
                                                         1 T of sugarfree cranberry juice
                                                         2 T of lemon juice
                                                         1 dandelion root tea bag

                                                         Steep the teabag in the water and remove bag.  Stir in juices.
                                                         Drink that for seven days in a row and easily lose excess
                                                         water bloat.
