I’ve Hit My First Snag…and am Ready to Cry
Today is my first ‘high carb’ day. Yup, I’m supposed to have 400-600 grams of carbs, so I planned what I’ll eat…
33 GF pretzels and 3 tbsp Cheese Whiz (27 carbs)
1 cup corn pasta, 1 cup meat sauce (68 carbs)
1 slice GF garlic toast (11 carbs)
10 cups popcorn (60 carbs)
1 cup hot cocoa (11 carbs)
This is 177 carbs. I need to figure out how to add 223 to hit the bare minimum. Even adding a smoothie will only give me another 60…163 short.
I HATE hypothyroidism. I do NOT eat enough to need to lose weight. I really don’t. I don’t think I can even get to 300 carbs. Not without feeling like I swallowed a boulder.
It might help if gluten-free bread products tasted better, but….yuck. The pretzels and corn pasta are good. And I have some whole grain bread that’s pretty good-with plenty of butter. But the high carb days are supposed to be low fat days, too.
Yes, I’m whining. I’m sorry. I just don’t want to fail at this, and I know there’s no way I’ll be able to stick to a flat out low carb way of life. Four days a week is plenty.
Guess I’m going to have to research this more so I’m better prepared for the high carb day next week. 😦
