I even dream about carbs, Seriously. In my dreams they look like those talking m&m from the commercials. Except for that they are completely white and smiley. They are sad that they can't eat lunch with me anymore. I'm sad too.
Anyway... now that you think I'm a total freak, I found a couple of solutions!
By the way, if you happen to be more knowledgeable about nutrition than I (which believe me, isn't hard) and it turns out that all of these supposedly low carb foods I've found are actually extremely bad for you, don't tell me. If you rain on my health parade, I might have to kill you.
Who knew I would fall so in love with cashews! I can only eat like 10 at a time, because they're high in fat, but they are amazing!
I daily praise the Lord for the little blessing of sugarfree chewing gum! It curbs craving and leaves my breath oh so sweet!
Holy cow! Is pineapple not the best fruit EVER!! I'm falling more and more in love with it every day!!
4. Whole Grain/Wheat/Nut bread
I can only have one slice every morning, but it is like eating an ice cream sundae to be able to add bread to my diet! Ok, not really an ice cream sundae, but I'm counting my blessings!!
5. Crystal Light
Since I am drinking 500 (no, I am not exaggerating) gallons of water a day, its nice to give it a little flavor once in a while. Crystal Light pink lemonade is to die for!
6. String Cheese
I love this stuff! Its good and its fun! Be warned however, the low fat stuff is no bueno!
7. South Beach Protein Bars
I have never been a big fan, but these aren't too bad! Especially not the peanut butter ones!
8. Trader Joe's Stuffed Chicken Breast
This is the by far the best thing that I have gotten to eat on this diet. Poor Pec had it for dinner three times last week. Sorry babe! But it actually feels like I'm eating real food!
Ok. As I'm reading over this list I'm beginning to see how pathetic I am. But... my body is supposed to be a temple and right now its still a Chuck E Cheese or something along those lines!
For now, the rest of you can keep my little friends company while you eat your...
