- scrambled eggs
- the usual supplements
- tea with cream
- cheese (5 pieces - probably about 4 oz)
- the meat and cheese off two large slices of pizza
- hot tea
- 4 chocolate cherries (as dessert)
A quick assessment put the day at 56% fat (105.5g) , 24% carbs (101.5g - elevated because I used the pizza whole; it was probably lower), and 20% protein (84.4g). If I knock off 60g of carbs from not eating pizza crust (wild guess there), the carb percentage drops to 17%, the fat to 45.8%, and the protein moves to 36.7%. That seems reasonable, although I'll have to go back and read some more; I'm guessing the raw protein gram count is lower for me than it probably should be.
Anyway, I was able to keep to my plan for lent yesterday, by having a measured quantity of dessert immediately after dinner, and nothing after that at all. Granted, I was in a massage for a good hour of the evening, which limited my available snacking hours, but it's good to make the start.
I have been wondering recently if the protein content of my meals has been too low, lately. I think I'll start paying more attention; if I recall things I read a year and more ago, I should be shooting for it to be closer to 130g/day. Getting it back in that range might help with the dryness problems I've been having with my hair and nails, and could do a bit of tweaking on my lean body mass levels.
Fasting this morning from convenience - the radio traffic bimbo indicated that the commute would be very nasty, so I skipped breakfast to get out of the house as early as possible. I have cheese here, so I'll break it when I get hungry.
