Topic: RE: 7 Years Out & BIG Weight Regain - HELP!
Grapes, cantaloupe and all the fruit you are eating are all full of sugar. KFC's cole slaw is high in sugar also. Start counting carbs. Keep it to 20-30 a day for a few weeks. I guarantee you, you will lose weight. Remember, you are absorbing 100% of the carbs you ingest. That bowl of cereal you eat right before bed? You absorb every single calorie. Plus, I swear, they put stuff in fast food that makes it addictive. It's a good thing I hate 99% of it - I swear I taste the chemicals in it.
I'm almost six years out. I have had pretty minimal rebound (ten pounds, and I'm looking to lose five of it before my daughter's wedding in July because I have a REALLY form-fitting dress) I am kinda sorta watching my carbs (just cutting out sugar and candy and I avoid most white flour anyway) and this is what I ate today:
Breakfast- Low-carb almond meal pancakes
Lunch - Mexican fried cheese, low-carb burrito, and about two tablespoons refried beans, fresh veggies and dip
Snacks - Popcorn, nuts
Dinner - Salmon patties and one slice of an asparagus/ricotta tart made with puff pastry, which is relatively low-carb compared to crackers, bread, etc.
** I'll have some Greek yogurt before bed tonight, mixed with DaVinci caramel syrup and a handful of pecans.
Yesterday, the only carbs I ate were three corn tortillas and a square of super dark chocolate. I do not routine eat fruit, so when I am in the mood for it, I don't feel guilty about eating a small bowl of fresh pineapple. Also, a lot of people have lost rebound by consciously adding in a couple of protein shakes a day. It seems to lower their cravings and the extra protein jumb-starts their weight loss.
