I cut out bread, rice, pasta and potatoes altogether but my carb intake today was still 254, yesterday it was 235 and the day before 266. My goal is to keep under 100. My mistake was drinking 2 sodas. I know, I know. I am trying to kick the soda habit, but only drinking 2 a day is honestly a real accomplishment.
I am really struggling. My meals consist of
Breakfast: Vanilla chex with almond milk
Lunch: Cottage cheese with fruit, fage yogurt and a cheese stick
Snack: Mixed nuts and dried plums
Dinner: Roasted chicken, broccoli and applesauce (this changes, but is usually a grilled or baked meat, veg and fruit)
You are still eating quite a bit of sugar, not enough fat for low carbing and not enough calories.
You need a food tracker app. My fitness pal is good. You need to look at your total carbs and then subtract the fiber from that total. You need to be eating low sugar fruit like berries and stay away from banana and pineapple. Eat turnips and cauliflower in place of potato and rice and other high starch things. Eat non sweetened yogurt with berries not sweetened. Limit your milk, almond milk or otherwise. There are a lot of sneaky carbs. Watch your coffee creamers too. It's best to use real heavy cream of you want creamy taste but no sweetener. Check out marks daily apple for ideas on how to adjust your diet.
Any lean meat can be eaten for breakfast. We put meals in a box & assume breakfast, lunch & dinner. Cereal is straight carbs & doesn't keep me full. I'd switch out that meal for protein, veggies & fruit. Bummer that you don't like eggs!
I hate eggs, they are so gross. And what lean meats are breakfast foods? All I know of is bacon, sausage an ham, WAY too much grease and sodium.
Skip the cereal for breakfast & increase your protein...eggs, lean meat.
