This has been my first week counting carbs. After a horrific start, I think I get it, we’ll find out at my “test” tomorrow…I have to take in my menus and see how I did.
But there is one thing I am confused about…my dh and I were going through my diabetic cookbooks, all pretty new — editions that is put out by “Diabetic Cooking”…actually, I am starving and I am looking for something that is good for dinner. But as we did, I marked how many WW points each was…just out of habit. I get 12-00 - 1500 calories /day counting carbs, and 150 - 175 carbs per day. That said, I noticed, that the recipes that are high in calories are low in carbs, and the recipes that are low in calories are hi in carbs. That makes NO sense to me. For example, in one book it has Tuna Steaks with Pinapple and tomato Salsa…228 calories, 11g carbs…there is no way I would eat just that…so I’m looking at the Tuna Steak and rabbit food for dinner. OR a Rice pudding with strawberries is 140 calories with 23 g carbs…YIKES… I’m not obsessing about this, cause I’ll eat within my means…but it just seems confusing to me. I am going to lose this last 50 lbs, I AM GOING TO LOSE THIS LAST 50 lbs…but eating like this is going to be hard.
Please watch for my post on weight lost tomorrow, Right now I am at 211; but I really would like to be looking at 210 tomorrow. My BS’s are great; now to conqueror part II of the new plan.
