Well, my tomato consumption (11.5 oz) got away from me.  Just need to pay more attention, or come up with a check off sheet.  BTW, I found a Kraft Italian Vinaigrette that has olive oil as the primary oil. 

I sautéd 3 oz mushrooms in butter and olive oil to have with my pico de gallo and fried eggs for breakfast.

Major nutrients in 3 oz white, raw mushrooms: 15 cal, zero fat, 2 g protein, 2 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 1 g digestible carb, 17% Daily Value for riboflavin, 13% for niacin, 10% for pantothenic acid, 11% for copper.

    I can’t believe that your are sticking to this so well.
    I thought that after about a month, you’d surely add back the carbs you missed.
    Looks like your weight is pretty stable.
    Any thoughts on what the future holds.

    • Hi, Judith.

      As I look in the mirror, I see a little too much fat still on my flanks. I’m going to stay the course and see if I can lose it. May need to start exercising more. Will continue to monitor caloric intake to see if I’m eating too much. If I eat too much fat and protein, my body will utilize that instead of burning my own fat.

      Eventually I expect to add small amounts of veggies, fruits, whole grains, and legumes, keeping it “low-carb” but not “very low-carb.” Not sure yet. It doesn’t seem “right” that I have to obsess so much about fiber and adequate micronutrients.
