Many people seem to assume that not eating bread and rice is not good for you. Anyway, my mom spent the bank holiday with me and I went ahead with my normal routine of low carb meals and snacks for the day. Her comments on what I was eating was needless to say, disheartening. Her argument was that you will crave those things more if you cut it out.
Now she had a point but for me, low/good carbing works for me because I get bloated eating things like bread, pasta and rice especially for dinner and I see a remarkably big difference in my weigh ins. I tend to crave/binge on chocolate and alcohol, not necessarily rice and bread. So somewhere in my mind I convinced myself yes I am depriving myself and should be eating some rice for my dinner, needless to say the eating spiralled out of control as I went and had bread and ice-cream with some rum liquer.
I´m not put off as I had 2 days of this and now I have drawn that line and back at it. Need to make a list of things I need to pick up in the grocery. Race day is also drawing near so going to up my exercise for the next 2 weeks.
