Okay so this is mainly for me and will be a listing of foods that I normally eat so that I won’t have to do all sorts of looking up of things, I can just refer to my chart and see how I’m doing concerning carbohydrates.
I know that in order to do a slow loss I need to keep my carb count below 150-100 grams, but I’m really looking for a bit better results.
A sweet spot weight loss is ideally keeping the carb count to 50-100 grams. Usually this is what I aim for as it allows me quite a bit of wiggle room.
A faster weight loss can be done by keeping the carb count under 50 grams but there is always the threat of Ketosis if I stay on it too much but I doubt if I would stay under 50 for a long period of time.
So where to begin…. Oh right hear by listing things. I’m going to try and add a chart and see if it is easier for me to use this during my 21 days. So here goes.
I will be updating this as I add food items to it so you might see this pop up occasionally as items are updated. This is just so that you can see where I got my counts from and most of it comes from the Internet unless it is posed on the food item.
So here is what I have so far:
|FOOD ITEMS||SERVING SIZE||CARBS IN GRAMS|
|Ahi Tuna Steaks||4 oz||0|
|Applewood Bacon – Thick||1 slices||0|
|Broccoli – Frozen||1 cup||6|
|Bacon – Regular||1 strip||0|
|Carrots – Shredded||1/4 cup||2.64|
|Cheese – Provolone||1 slice||0|
|Cheddar Cheese – Shredded||1/4 cup||0|
|California Chicken Salad-Senoma Diet||1 cup||11|
|Chicken Spread-Boiled/No Skin||1/4 cup||0|
|Cranberries – Dried||1/3 cup||33|
|Coffee – Hawaiian||1 pod||0|
|Cream – Heavy Whipping||2 Tbsp||0|
|Creamer – French Vanilla Sugar Free||2 Tbsp||2|
|Egg, Hard Boiled||1||0.56|
|Fontina Cheese||1 oz||1|
|Green Beans-French Cut||1 cup||5|
|Hamburger – Sirloin||4 oz||0|
|Hamburger Patty – Juicy||1||0|
|Lettuce – Green Leafy||1 cup||1|
|Mayonaise – Regular||1 Tbsp||0|
|Mushrooms, Whole Raw||1 large||1|
|Mustard – Whole Grain||1 Tsp||0|
|Salad Dressing – 3 Cheese||2 Tbsp||2|
|Sesame Chicken||2 cups||55|
|Sprakling Water – Strawberry||12 oz||0|
|Tomato – Roma||1 medium||3|
|Tuna Fish – Can Drained||1/2 cup (4 oz)||0|
|Vitamin C – Emergen-C||1 packet||6|
|Yogurt Greek-Danon Light&Lean-Blueberry||5.3 oz||9|
That is what I have so far and I will be changing it as I start eating more food.
So you can ignore this if you want but I will need it for my counts in the future.
So just in case you just tuned in, I’ve added a few more things to my food list. I did take a recipe from the Sonoma diet which is similar to Mediterranean diet. It should be noted that I do not add any of the walnuts into the salad and am not as generous with the celery because it actually tends to overpower the salad. So that would theoretically mean that my carb count should be lower but what the heck, I’ll stick with what they list and just go from there. Too hard for me to try and stop and figure out all of the additives so I’ll just leave it up to them.
I’ve also added Yogurt onto my list and it took some good looking to see what was a wise choice for me. I love Greek Yogurt but all too often it is high in the calorie count but Danon really surprised me with the Light & Lean Greek Yogurt. So if you’re inclined to have yogurt even Mark of Mark’s Daily Apple encourages you to have Green yogurt because it has more protein.
I may also be borrowing several other recipes from other diet plans that I’ve tried over the years and if so I will mention where I got the diet so you can look up the recipe. Most of the books I got it from are several years old and usually you can now find them on line.
