I didn’t really think I would get *that* much interest in my lower carbohydrate post. I would have done it sooner. Anyways-I’ll answer all questions in a later post. It’s something I’ll certainly be keeping up with throughout the summer, posting interesting relevant topics on the blog. I’ll probably keep it as a Wednesday topic because in my brain that is the day I correlate to food. So if you only want to stop by then-that is your best bet.
I’ll answer the most asked questions now, because well…I can.
Did you feel lethargic when you first started?
Yes, yes I did. For a period of about a week and a half, I could not eat more than 2000 calories because I was so damn full. (I was originally eating about 2500). Not only was it extremely hard to eat those calories, I felt like I had eaten like 5000. I did not force myself to eat that many and in fact, I probably only ate about 1500. (I didn’t lose any weight as stated). Then I slowly began to get more hungry and was able to eat more. (You can’t deny this part of the phase and starve yourself…the hunger doesn’t go away). I did not immediately cut down my carbohydrates to 150 but gradually over the course of about 3 weeks.
But-I participated in the Foodie Swap (who am I?) hosted by Lindsay this month and I must post about that today. (must like someone is holding a string around my neck…). Basically, you get randomly paired with someone who also wants to participate. (But to make matters more confusing you don’t get paired with the same person that is paired with you…HA!). I was paired with someone who does not blog, but should because she knows Delicious food better then I do!
First I apologize, as this photo I took of all the goods could be done better by a five year old. Alas, I didn’t realize it until now and have eaten everything.
Next month, I’ll be better. Anywho-all this stuff was the so freaking good.
The salsa-I’m a salsa fiend. I eat salsa like I eat ketchup…well I just eat it and a lot. Next up, the pad thai. At first I was like oooh fancy ramen noodles? They kin d of are but they are so good and if you know me-you know I’m very hesitant about trying Thai food. I got super sick from some a few years back. The STEAZ tea was interesting; it was like carbonated raspberry tea (also good). Finally, the fruit and nut mix was by far my favorite. I seriously ate it within 24 hours of it coming to my house. I had a few awesome runs after that .
Question for you: Have you ever done a food swap?
