I was out-of-town for the last three days.  Thought I did pretty well with the diet, although it was harder.  Biggest temptation was going into Baskin-Robbins to buy ice cream for my daughter.  I salivated when I entered and smelled the store.  Didn’t cheat, however.  Nor did I when we ate at a Mexican restaurant and they brought corn chips and bean dip to the table.  Had a fajita salad there and told them to hold the huge taco shell it’s served in. 

Without my computer, I didn’t track my intake as thoroughly as usual. 

The hotel offered a continental breakfast: two juices, bread, bagels, 4 cereals, milk, muffins, 3 fresh fruits.  All loaded with carbs!  My choices were butter, imitation butter, Philadelphia Cream Cheese spread, and coffee.  I had coffee, later supplemented with nuts, canned tuna, and string cheese I had brought.

I discovered that Wendy’s (fast food restaurant) has a Grilled Chicken Ceasar Salad that fits in to a very low-carb diet, including the high-fat salad dressing.  Don’t eat the croutons!  Good stuff.  Other fast food restaurants offer similar items.  Check nutrient analysis at the company website. 

Weight is up.  I was at 5000 ft above sea level whereas I usually live at 2000 ft.  May have had some fluid (and salt) retention causing weight gain.  I’ve not seen the fluid retention—in my hands—under 7000 ft in the past.
