So the world really must have wanted me to stop eating cake because the day after I wrote the last post, I shadowed in the obesity clinic and was introduced to the ketogenic diet – basically a low carb, moderate protein, high fat diet. I met a few patients who were successfully losing weight on this diet, so I decided that the heavens were telling me to stop eating cake..and brownies…and pies…and bagels…and bread…oh God. What am I doing?!
The real kick in the butt was the attending telling me that my goal BMI should be <23, which means I need to lose 15lbs. I don’t think I’ve been 110 since 7th grade, so we’ll see how this diet goes. It was nice to get some motivation though. I went grocery shopping today and came home with the freshest set of groceries I’ve ever bought. And I made two new things today – beef and broccoli and egg muffins! Forgot to save a picture of the beef and broccoli, but these cuties came out pretty good!
You can get the recipe at http://eat-drink-love.com/2014/03/low-carb-egg-muffins. My taste test muffin was pretty delish!
I also told myself that I would refrain from dessert as much as possible until I lose the weight. That’s a harder task…must be strong!
