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.
