When you read the words "cheated" what comes to mind??? A carb loaded dessert?? A carb loaded entree like pasta or pizza or maybe even a bag of Doritos? Or even worse an all out carbmaniacal binge. The answer is none of the above.
Let' start with the good news first. I made my first mock danish... the bad news is that I made my second and third as well and ate them throughout the day. Although my total carb count was 35 grams for the day. I never really even realized how many carbs these low carb gems had and lost track of how many lower quality carbs I was putting into my body.
I have completed my sixth week of this new life style so if I go by the Atkins standards I did not really cheat as my total intake of carbs in the 6th week can be as high as 40.However, my personal goal is to try and to stay at 30 or less as I have a ton to lose. So I cheated on myself. This type of eating lead me to my weight I am at now. Whether it being a carb loaded doughnut or a carb smart mock danish. I must work on changing my eating habits and style of eating so I can break the chains of weight gain forever. From now on new and delicacy low carb snacks will be done in moderation with knowledge before hand of how many carbs I am ingesting.
