Today for breakfast, I tried THM pancakes (a recipe from the book). They were delicious, and I ate them with a bit of sugar free syrup, sliced strawberries, and a container of Dannon Oikos Triple 000 yogurt. This is considered an E meal; E stands for energizing. It includes good, healthy carbs. It was a great breakfast, and it definitely filled me up. For lunch I had a big salad including baby spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, grape tomatoes, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, and caeser dressing. I also had a crisped salmon fillet, which I pan fried in coconut oil and seasoned with sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. I had never eaten salmon before, and I am not a big fish person. I was skeptical of whether I would like it or not, but it was absolutely delicious. This would be considered an S meal; S stands for satisfying and includes fats. I did breakfast for dinner tonight - 5 pieces of turkey bacon, and eggs scrambled with half n half in coconut oil and covered with sharp cheddar cheese. This is another S meal. I will likely be eating more S meals than E meals as I try to drop my cravings for sugar and carbs. I've replaced sugar with stevia, so I am still able to have my coffee, which makes me uber happy. I had to replace my non dairy creamer with half & half, which has turned out well too. I don't think this diet is going to be hard, just more of a lifestyle change.
Anyway, I cheated earlier in the week with a bacon wrapped pizza from Little Caesars. I was fairly sure that I would have to pay dearly for that, but was pleasantly surprised when I only gained a small amount this week. I am going to have Chris measure me tomorrow so that I can get an updated list of measurements as well.
