Day 15

I have made it to day 15! I am feeling pretty good and a little bad because last night I skipped a meal and in a pitch grabbed a subway salad which I bet is high in carbs bit am not 100% sure, I’ll report back but this what I got (yes I know it is stinky lol) grilled chicken salad with iceberg lettuce, 4 tomato slices, cucumber, spinach leaves, jalapeño, banana peppers, pickles, black olives and some red onion with oil and vinegar (no sugar). I need to see how the chicken is prepared, bit maybe it’s ok. Only $5.50 is a pretty good deal here on NYC.

Tonight I’m making a nice steak, veggies and having a little dry red wine for the first time in a few weeks, I hope it doesn’t mess me up 🙂

I am still in ketosis and although I don’t use keto sticks I know from the way I feel and how my mouth tastes that it’s in full swing, gotta up my water!

In a pinch what do you guys eat when u need to eat and have nothing in front of you?


Day 12 of induction

Hey everyone! So I am beginning to feel the wave of energy we all know comes with induction but it came really late this time around for me, perhaps it is because I am now 38 and need to excercise more. Either way, I feel it is here and I have the horrid but welcomed ketone breath! I decided to keep a toothbrush and toothpaste at work so if it gets out of hand I can take care of it lol.
For those who don’t know what ketone breath or ketones are you should google it. It is essentially the byproduct of losing weight on the Atkins diet and comes with bad breath, stinky pee and other goodies.
Today I need coffee! No if, ands or buts about it! I am continuing adjusting to daylight savings and find it rough this time.
Off to work all! Drink your water!


Day 6 of induction and the sugar craving is gone

Tonight we made ground beef with some chopped tomato – simple and very filling.  Also had some cheesy broccoli with it.  I need to up my water, it seems I work so much that I keep forgetting to drink it – ugh.  I am going to go drink a liter of water right now!

Things are good, food is getting a little boring so I need to begin getting more creative with my cooking – ideas?


Day 2 of induction and I’m feeling great!

The key to my induction this time around is to drink a TON of water – I think this not only makes us pee a lot which is awesome to remove toxins and drop weight while in ketosis but it rehydrates your body and helps eliminate ‘stuff’ that has been sitting around. I am eating about 5 eggs a day, also chicken, spinach and lots of water.  Tonight is Steak, sauteed spinach, sauteed mushrooms and some basic salad – I love eating this way and hope it continues making me feel this great!


I’m empty from a stomach bug…

Here is the whole story. my son had been sick for about 4 days and not able to keep any food down, this past Friday my wife texted me and told me she was leaving early because she had vomited at work, I thought “oh boy! weekend fun times” I went to cvs and got anti everything and headed home. after putting my wife to bed and making my son fall asleep from my reading I them relaxed and watched some late night tv. that’s when my stomach began gurgling, then rumbling, I made a small salad and made a turkey burger ad went to sleep not too much later. around 3am i awoke from a dream of mr being I’ll only to realize I WAS sick! ugh
without the details i spent two days expelling everything I had ever eaten lol
yesterday I felt a little better an even though it isn’t low carb I ate some saltines and today I began another rung of induction. I feel this will be different this time around since i am ’empty’

I am waiting for the lirr right now, I have a salad packed, water at work and ready to restart after my sickness. tonight will be spinach and steak and this morning was 3 eggs, bacon and a fork lol

update u tomorrow!
