Low Carb Continues…

I missed updating yesterday, but I was down a pound yesterday morning, and another 1.6 lbs this morning. That brings total loss to 6.7 lbs – right back to where I was the day before we left for vacation.

 

I think I’ve learned a few things over the past week… one being that the occasional cheat doesn’t seem to derail me too much. The other is that I seem to do better with a little bit of fat in my diet. Dukan prescribed a very low-fat (as close to nonfat as possible) diet, but adding some fat back in seemed to get my diet moving again.

 

I made some delicious cream puffs today. I was inspired by this recipe, but modified it for the ingredients I had at home. I took a oopsie, cut it in half, filled them with some whipped cream (heavy whipping cream, steviva & vanilla) and topped them with a chocolate concoction.

 

Chocolate sauce:

2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream

2 Tbsp butter (melted)

1 Tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 tsp steviva (or other sweetener)

 

Mix ingredients, microwave for 30 seconds, mix again. Pour over oopsie cream puff and enjoy!

 

Tomorrow is a brewfest, so we’ll be trying lots of different kinds of beers… which… are definitely NOT low carb. So I guess we’ll be testing out another cheat day tomorrow. I think the trick for me is not going too crazy on cheat days so I’m not spending a lot of energy the next week trying to get back to where I was the week before.
