So I decided to break down my low carb days down for y’all because I know how hard it is for me to do these. It truly nothing crazy and by all means, I am not strict. If you haven’t read my blog post — how I lost eleven pounds without working out, click here to read this one first! You can also click here to see the overall plan of what I eat in a day. It tells you how I do not deprive myself and has some pretty cool before and afters!
I do two low carb days during the week, the other five are normal macros.
LOW CARB DAYS: increase your fats, decrease your carbs and keep your proteins the same. Screenshot this list below so you can refer to what to avoid VS. what to eat on these days! These are the hardest days for me because I don’t like healthy fats and I rather eat alllll the carbs! Keep your goal as less than 50 G of carbs and over 40 G of fat!
This basically what my lunch would look like on a low carb day. Grilled chicken, cheese, grilled onion, and brussel sprouts tossed in olive oil and Balsamic topped with parmesan. If you love avocado (unlike me) that’s the perfect healthy fat to add to your meals on low carb days!
As I stated before, I’ve been doing the intermittent fasting program (here) where I’m only allowed to eat in an 8 hour window. This is a perfect program to join if you’re needing help to get on the right track. You even get a coach to cheer you on your way to health!
Try to find foods that you really like that are good for you and learn different ways to cook them. That will help with how boring eating healthy can be. Also, baby steps will help you be more successful as well. If you mess up, don’t give up.
