Low Carb Food & Fitness Diary

When we follow a Low Carb Lifestyle, there are different approaches that work for different people.
As they say, different strokes for different folks…
{Read on to see my low carb food & fitness diary.}

There really is no one-size-fits-all approach and each person should do what works best for them, within the guidelines of low carb living.

For example, are you very active?
Do you perform better on 1-2 large meals a day, or do 3-4 smaller meals suit you best?
Do you drink alcohol or do you save it only for very rare, special occasions? Or have you given it up altogether?

Lots of questions and lots of different scenarios!

For me personally, these vary from month to month and also depends on how much sleep I get.
I am constantly working on new recipes, working with food and thinking of food, so it’s really hard for me to just eat 1 or 2 large meals a day.
I tend to do better when I eat 3-4 small meals a day, especially when I exercise.

When I go through periods of not being very active, let’s say because of an injury or illness or whatever, I eat much more {and still 3-4 times a day}  and tend to pick up a bit of weight, even though I’m still eating the correct things, just too much of it.
If I’m not exercising, I also don’t sleep very well and crave sweet things and I’m generally not very productive then…

When I exercise regularly, I sleep better and funny enough, I naturally eat less {but still enough!!} and make better food choices.
I’m more productive and a happier person, although I’m always pretty much a sunshine-happy-person :)

Right, so what does a typical week’s low carb food & fitness diary look like for me?

I also like to do a fat fast for 3 days, every second month or so.
It really helps me to ‘reset’ my appetite and keep my portions the correct size.

The portions in the table above is quite small, each ranging from about 200-500 calories and I am never hungry, as the higher, healthy fats keep you full for quite some time!

Just remember – you cannot out-train a bad diet, so whether or not you choose to exercise, stick to the guidelines of a low carb / banting lifestyle.

For me, a low carb diet or lifestyle and exercise go hand-in-hand and makes me feel healthier overall.

I prep most of these meals in advance, in fact, I do it once a week for the whole week and that makes it super easy to stick to! {Download your FREE meal plan + prep planner here.}

*I must just add that I also enjoy a square or 2 of dark chocolate every other day, as well as glass of dry white wine most evenings…
