Day 6: Weigh In Day / What I ate in a day

162 lbs. That will be 1lb less from last week. Slowly getting there. Honestly, I was expecting at least 2lbs loss but yeah better than none at all. I can still say weight loss goal is still on the roll.

I have set my total carbohydrate intake to 30-40 grams per day. Enough to lose weight slowly but not considered as ketogenic. My reason for this is because I want to include some carrots, pumpkins, kumara, chickpeas and dairy products. I also prepare food for my kids so I need to taste their meals & snacks, ahem! So a bite of this, a nibble of that adds up.

The banana bread I bake is a lifesaver especially during breakfast or tea. Texture wise it is still denser and a bit sticky than the soft bread I use to eat. BUT! It’s the best alternative for bread I found and I’m not complaining at all. According to where I got the recipe from “What the Fat!”, each slice is around 4 grams. Not bad. So eat slowly, savour the sweetness or otherwise it’s gone in a sec.

I’m also looking at using carrot or pumpkin instead of the banana. It will lower the total carb per slice even more but still retain the sweetness of the bread I am after. What do you think?
