Comparing weeks: Carbs vs Protein

After a week of losing weight (5lbs!!!), I didn’t want to get back into my old habits ( man. I missed my apples, bananas, and PB!) But I didn’t want to go back to my carb relationship (we broke up for good!)

So I wanted to show how my diet has changed in the past few weeks…….

2 weeks ago (not so much) Diet :

Breakfast: oatmeal pancake (oats, pumpkin, egg, PB) starbucks via coffee

Snack: hard boiled egg

Lunch: hamburger (no bun) bacon, american cheese, ketchup, celery

Dessert: Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate

Snack: carrots

Dinner: Breakfast for dinner (banana & egg pancake. butter, agave nectar 3 sausage links, strawberries)

 

Last week Dukan Diet:

Breakfast: Egg, 2 large, Jennie-O Turkey Bacon-1 slice, 3 serving. Coffee with skim milk

Snack: Turkey Pepperoni, low fat string cheese, and deli turkey

Lunch: 3oz chicken, fat free philadelphia cream cheese, wrapped in bacon

Dessert:  Dannon Light and Fit  Greek Vanilla Yogurt, chia seeds

Snack: 2 babybel cheese, turkey pepperoni

Dinner: Dukan Pancake: 2 egg whites (fluffed), oat bran, cinnamon, fat free philadelphia cream cheese, truvia

Comparing the two weeks:

Carb week: Calories 1983, carbs 162, fat 117, protein 73

Dukan week: Calories 1090, carbs 42, fat 54, protein 111

I CAN NOT believe the difference in the numbers, but I will tell you I feel a million times better! I have more energy,  I sleep better, my clothes fit better, no bloating!!!

The only issues I have:  on dukan you have to drink a ton of water, and even though I did, it still can make things move slowly…. (if you catch my drift) Also, I want to eat more “natural” foods, but I think this is a great start! I just had to share the difference

Question for you:

What is your favorite “natural” food?
