I started my low carb WOE on Monday 12th November. I know roughly what I weighed (not to the exact pound though) and wont weigh myself for ages yet. I have such a massive amount to lose that the single pounds dont matter just now.
I suspect I have PCOS and insulin resistence, going by my symptoms & the fact cysts were seen when I had a laproscopy a few years ago. I fit a lot of the criteria. I hope to reverse these conditions (if I have them). I would love not to have a hairy chin ha ha!
In the week & a half that I have been doing this, I have felt great! I did have a slight headache for a couple of days but that has been it. Weirdly, I did have this weird texture on the back of my bottom teeth for a few days, no amount of brushing helped! Its gone now though - I wonder if i was something to do with entering ketosis?
I am trying to eat high fat, medium protein and low carb.
Yesterdays menu -
B - Lidl low carb chipolatas
L - Had friends over, so did a low carb spread! Salad leaves, cucumber/pepper/carrot sticks & dip, egg mayo, ham slices, halloumi cheese wrapped in parma ham
S - Chicken thigh & mayo, half a bag of pork crunch
D - Celeriac fondant, braised cabbage, roast guinea fowl. Dinner was fantastic! I love celeriac cooked this way.
