Low-Carb Challenge Results

I just finished our two-week low-carb challenge. The results? I enjoyed it quite a bit. Good food and after the first few days there was plenty of it (we’ll keep tweaking the amounts) so I was never hungry.

I also had breakfast every day, which I usually never do (scrambled eggs every day, with added bacon and salmon on the weekends. And I loved the leftovers for lunch, it saved me so much time!

My favorite meals were the pesto chicken, the low-carb pizza, the low-carb burgers and – even though it took quite some time to make – the low-carb lasagna.

As a bonus my significant other, Kristin, enjoyed not having to cook for two weeks.

Despite adding one meal a day I still lost 1.2 kilos (2.6 pounds). Probably as I ate fewer carbs than usual (I probably have like 50 grams a day usually) and did not snack at all. Since I had put on a couple of pounds during the holidays I don’t mind losing them this easily.

Have you just finished the challenge? What were your results?

Take the 2-week low-carb challenge

PS

People who have significant amounts of excess weight tend to lose significantly more weight on the challenge.

    I lost 5 lbs and 1 1/2 inches around my waist but the best part is that my husband's average blood glucose levels dropped from 209 to 130. I have noticed increased energy and love that I can fast intermittently without guilt or hungar. I've always been a fat fan and have stayed away from all things low fat plus we don't eat sweets due to my husband' s diabetes. So, this diet is pretty easy for us to adopt. I do miss bread, potatoes, rice, and pasta but can do without them on a daily basis. Will I eat a cheeseburger with French fries ever again or mashed potatoes with gravy? Maybe, maybe not. Right now, I'm not planning to.
