I really need to lose weight. The only successful way I’ve lost weight has been to take a low carb approach. Whether this goes on or not will depend on motivation. Today I was motivated.
The thing about low carb eating is that it isn’t as easy as it sounds. You may think it’s all bacon and eggs and meat but it isn’t. It’s important to carefully choose vegetables and during the initial induction phase it’s important not to eat fruit. The big risks in the induction phase are constipation and gout. Both are uncomfortable and painful. Whether I continue depends on how I feel.
For breakfast I prepared a low carb fried egg, bacon and parmesan cheese dish.
I really like cooking my bacon in a small benchtop oven which allows easy melting of cheese.
After grocery shopping I went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra and found a pelican, black swan and some other water birds
It wasn’t a great day for photography
I had a coffee at Heather’s House of Cake
For lunch I made a beef mince roll with tasty Coon cheese wrapped in iceberg lettuce
This didn’t look that exciting but it tasted surprisingly good.
For dinner I made a prawn and bacon omelet
I bought these from Coles
Cooked in bacon fat and butter
So far so good for a low carb day.
How do you feel about a low carb way of living?
