What’s up party people!?!
Today is day 5 of my experiment on the slow carb diet. I purchased the 4HB the day it was released and I decided I was going to go the route of “Rapid Fat Loss.”
I started the slow carb diet on Jan 3rd and guess how many pounds I have lost since then???
I don’t know if this is all water weight and whatnot, but I have been drinking hella water prescribed by TF. I think the craziest thing about this is that I haven’t exercised worth a shit.
So what have I been eating the past couple of days?
Proteins: Legumes (Lentils, Black Beans, Red Beans,Italian green beans ), Chicken Breast, Steak, Hotdogs (deff not a super healthy choice), Jerky
Veggies: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Carrots, Spinach (Canned and Fresh), Cucumber, Napa cabbage, Spring mix salad, Radish
Other: Sugar free Jello, Salsa (The brand I bought sucks!), Diff seasonings, Italian dressing, Multi Vitamin
You may be asking…How did you go about eating all this crap? And this is how a typical day went for me.
Breakfast (0700-0900): Two Eggs (Scrambled or Fried), 1 serving of legumes, 1 serving of veggies
Lunch (1100-1300): Steak or Chicken, 1 serving of spring mix or a serving of veggies, 1 serving of legumes
Dinner (1630-2000): Steak or Chicken, 1 serving of veggies, 1 serving of legumes
I tried to throw some salsa into my eggs in the morning, but the salsa I bought was pretty crappy, so every now and then I’d throw in some Picante or Siracha. I would also season the eggs with salt\pepper and sometimes smoked paprica.
For the veggies…
The canned spinach was pretty gross unless I sprinkled some Tony’s on it. I think in the future I’ll stick to fresh spinach and either eating it raw or sauteing it. For the broccoli and cauliflower I bought those steamer type deals and would sprinkle a little Tony’s on those. The cucumber, napa cabbage, and radish, I ate all those in a form of kimchi. There’s a korean store in town and I usually buy those freshly premade from them. Kimchi has been a staple eat in my house ever since I lived in Korea for a year. I didn’t like the shit at first, but now I’ve grown to love it and cook\eat out Korean all the time. I just found this site Maangchi in which she has some pretty good videos and recipes. A lot of them call for sugar or honey in which I guess you can go “lite aka light” or just omit it without changing the flavor too much.
For the legumes…
Black beans I just bought in the can. I stuck to the Goya brand cause that’s what I’m used to and they seem to be cheaper then the other brands. For the lentils, I used the Progresso lentil soup and just drained the “soup” out. I was lucky enough to get some left over Cajun style red beans with sausage AND that shit was good with some scrambled eggs.
For the meats…
The steak I seasoned with a little Adobo, salt\pepper, Italian dressing and the chicken I marinated in Mojo.
There you go…pretty simple.
Damn I’ve written a lot! I’ll try to get on here and post more specifics as to what I’m doing and the culinary prowess I use to make bomb ass food.
