Steel Cut Oats

by deMuralist on 29 Apr 2013, 12:13

So, I went on Atkins Diet about 2 years ago, was successful at first but then plateaued. So I switched over to a Primal Diet, and have been doing that in combination with other restrictions for about a year and a half. Basically low carb or very low carb for the entire time.

Yesterday, I got a hankering for oatmeal. So I cooked up a batch of Steel Cut Oats, tossed in an egg (add protein and make it more custard-ey), some KerryGold butter, a splash of stevia, a tablespoon of walnuts and YUM! I really missed oatmeal.

SW 3/1/13 =274.8
CW= 268.4 up after an up day
Calories = 1730
Net Carbs = 134g/32%
Fat= 97g/52%
Protein= 70g/17%
Sleep =6:50 91%
Steps= nevermind! I start back on the treadmill tomorrow, still have a bit of congestion going on.

So, a big part of the reason that I put on pounds on my non-fast days is that I don't drink as much when I am at home. I do drink the coffee and tea in the morning and cups of tea throughout the day, but never finish even one of the 50oz bottles of ACV, in fact I rarely even start them. My fingers and toes get very puffy, they look like little sausages, and rings are very tight. I have tried in the past to force it, but I just have given up. I think I need to work on it. Get at least 1 of the ACV bottles in as it is a bit uncomfortable.

Today is a non-fast day.
