No I'm not talking about one of my kids. I'm talking about the one Reese's Peanut Butter Cup I devoured after dinner last night. Trust me, it could have been worse. 18 carbs in one little candy. To help blunt the surge of insulin that was sure to come, I ate a home made protein bar with it. These protein bars have 2 TB natural peanut butter and 2-4 TB heavy cream in them (along with protein powder) so they are loaded with fat and that should lessen the damage a little. None the less, I can't do that again. There will be plenty of time to indulge in crap like that once I'm at a lower body fat.
In fact, my plan of attack is this (I've changed it a bit from the original plan): Do a basic Atkins induction until my body fat gets lower. Then switch to more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, which means eating low carb 5-6 days and eating carbs one day (or just one meal, we'll see how it goes). But for now I've got to stick to the plan. Very low carb, few veggies, mostly meat, eggs and a little cheese along with a post-workout protein shake. Simple and it works.
