Today I was craving chocolate.
I didn’t have any but I thought about chocolate a lot. Actually bittersweet chocolate or cocoa powder without sugar is low glycemic but is not allowed on phase 1 of the South Beach diet.
I don’t think I ate much today which is fine plus I went to the gym which is a plus.
One of the down sides of phase 1 is that you can only have eggs for breakfast. Fortunately, I love eggs but I miss cereal on phase 1 but it only lasts for two weeks so I keep telling myself that I can live with anything for two weeks, right?
Breakfast – 1 string cheese stick – then went to the gym
Breakfast later – a mountain of fresh spinach with lox and 2 eggs in an omelet
Snack – 1 serving of nuts, 1/2 turkey burger, 8 oz of vegetable cocktail
Dinner – some herring and 2/3 can of beans with BBQ sauce – I don’t think the BBQ sauce is totally low glycemic but I had it anyway. It had 9 grams of sugar. I also had a few fresh mushrooms with the rest of the hummus and a few spoonfuls of cottage cheese
Snack – 1 string cheese stick
Except for the BBQ sauce, I think this could be considered a diabetic diet.
You can see that I am kind of lazy. For some reason I don’t feel like making a mess in the kitchen so I don’t feel like cooking.
