    thanks for the info! i guess i'll stick to water with lemon. I dont drink coffee or soda but i'll miss my apple juice though lol.

    I have one more question.
    Today was my cheat day and i'm starting the Low carb tomorrow.
    Am i supposed to eat 1 portion of protein and fat for every meal and snack?
    Could someone give me an example of what they eat on a typical low carb day?

      i'm pretty sure on the days you can eat fruit, an 8 oz glass (SMALL) of juice can count as a serving of fruit. just make sure the juice is 100% juice and not a bunch of sugar and crap. best if you juice your fruit yourself.

        My typical low-carb day:

        Breakfast
        2 egg whites (protein)
        2 lowfat turkey sausages (fat)
        Extra: coffee+ half and half
        (I'm counting the turkey sausage as fat because it's not really all that low fat + it gives extra protein)

        AM snack
        1 chicken sausage (110 cal/4.5g fat) (protein)
        1 sargento colby cheese stick (fat)

        or
        1 grilled chicken tender instead of the chicken sausage

        Lunch
        3oz sirloin tips (protein)
        grilled mushrooms (free veg)
        celery (free) stuffed with cream cheese (fat)

        Afternoon Snack
        1 chicken sausage (110 cal/4.5g fat) (protein)
        1/8 cup shelled walnuts (fat)

        Dinner
        Grilled Chicken breast (protein)
        2 cups roasted broccoli (free) with olive oil (fat)

        PM snack
        EAS vanilla whey - 1 scoop (protein) mixed with water


        Generally I made extra of my dinners so I would have extra for lunch the next day.

          Oh and I have to say it is a lot of work to do this, but really worth it.... FI was grilling sausages at 7am one morning so I would have snacks ... I bring a huge lunch bag to work, with lots of tupperware!!

            thank you finz!

            for breakfast i had 2 egg whites and 2 pieces of low-fat turkey bacon- still was about 6 grams of fat. hope thats ok

            for a snack i think i'll just have cottage cheese since thats protein and fat or an egg white again with a cheese stick

            lunch i'll do chicken sausage and veggies

            dinner will probably be beef and veggies

            I'm going to have to go back to the grocery store i think, looks like i'ts going to be a long week trying to eat just protein, fat and veggies.
            thank goodness this program begins with a cheat day.. i had cookie dough ice cream, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and pizza.. it was great lol

                  Finzup - hey congrats on the loss, you are doing fantastic! Sounds like you have amazing will power too!!

                  Lisaloo - how'd the cheat day/weigh in go?

                  I lost 1 lb this past week which I'm pretty happy about considering I hardly exercised lol. I'm starting training again this week so I'm sure I'll probably start losing even more weight every week...or put on weight if I gain muscle (which is fine). Guess I'll see how it goes. :)
