How many carbs was I really having a day??????? No wonder I could never lose weight and keep it off.
I would not have had a clue....
I always thought I was eating pretty healthy. I was exercising and eating what I would think was reasonably healthy, I thought if I exercised it would burn off the excess calories I was having - but I could not lose any weight.
That was until we created XLR8 and designed our program to burn fat, block any sugar cravings and build muscle and to reduce my food intake to only 20 grams of carbs a day.
So now that I have been on this journey for a while now I thought it would be interesting to look at how many carbs I was eating prior to starting XLR8.
This was a typical good day for me: (I will post a bad day at the end)
2 cups of Special K and Skim Milk
Carbs 58.3 grams
Chicken and Salad Roll
Carbs 42 grams
Muesli Bar Choc Chip
Carbs 18.8 grams
Chicken Schnitzel, mash potato, beans and carrots with gravy
Carbs 57 grams
Low fat tub of yogurt
Carbs 18 grams
So the total carbs I was having was about 194 grams a day and this was a good day for me.
NO wonder I could not lose any weight and I was walking or going to the gym.
The most frustrating thing about dieting was I could not stop the feeling of wanting to eat until I switched to XLR8 once the cravings stopped I got control back and I have never looked back.
Now for the bad day: (and this is true I would have this without even thinking)
Toast for breakfast - carbs 26.4 grams
Chicken and Salad roll - carbs 42 grams
Fish & Chips - Battered Flake, 2 dim sims, potato cake & chips - carbs over 100 grams
Chicken Chips 175 gram packet - carbs 97 grams
So this day would see me over 265 grams for the day and I sure there was some chocolate and lollies added in as well, so probably well over 300 grams a day.
Also I don't drink coffee but I would drink tea with 2 sugars a couple of times a day and so I can add another 7 grams per cup.......
I did not drink water at all but drank gallons of diet coke which has no carbs so there is some good news..NOT
How different my life is now that I am on XLR8 have less than 20 grams of carbs every day.
Do yourself a favour and get on board with XLR8 - it has completely changed my life and it can change your life too.... Get control back and XLR8 your life.
