Yesterday, tragedy struck in the land of the no-carb diet...I gained 4 pounds without consuming the first pure carb. Argh. I'm not sure what exactly went wrong, but I have some suspicions.
I have realized (belatedly) that the canned beans I've been consuming ad nauseum not only have tons of fiber, but also a considerable amount of sodium...I'm hoping that yesterday's weight aberration can be largely attributed to fluid retention, and with that in mind, consider this:
I weighed myself this evening between meals, then realized I needed to micturate...afterwards I weighed myself again, and registered a whole pound lighter. A pound of pee. Who knew?
So I have added more water to my daily diet, hoping to flush more of the sodium, etc, and keep everything moving through my system. I've also added beans to the breakfast and lunch meals, at least for a few days to see if that changes anything.
Tonight's dinner featured a little break in the routine, with some spicy Italian sausage along with this colorful spectacle:
"Stoplight" peppers and red onion - Yum!
