margaret2018 Posted July 26, 2018 Share Posted July 26, 2018 Hi! I’m on day 10, and I’m a person coming from a typically lean diet to begin with so the W30’s aspect of no calorie counting and stuff is a whole new world for me. I always tried to limit starchy vegetables and only really ate lean protein meat sources. So I have a question about that. I’ll use my breakfast as an example (two are pictured in my attachment but I only had one and saved the other): - 2 slices of sweet potato, baked in homemade mayo & TJ’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning - 1 fried egg cooked in pan with bacon grease - 1 or 2 pieces compliant bacon - roasted onion (This is a delicious breakfast sandwich, BTW. I told my NY boyfriend it’s better than the egg everything bagel I had in Long Island right before I started my 30. He wasn’t buying it, but I mean, it is really good so you should try it.) In addition to the breakfast sammie, I had about 1/3 of a plantain and maybe a tbsp of almond butter. I pan fried the plantains in coconut oil. Overall, I am full. I know this meal was a little low on veggies, I’m normally better about that but forgot my spinach at home this morning. But I also felt wrong eating so much starchy/fatty substance. Is two slices of sweet potato and a little less than half of a plantain with oils too much starch/carbs? It just felt really heavy and I’m not used to eating this way, so I guess I’m looking for some insight and knowledge surrounding starchy vegetables in combo to fattier meats like bacon. Should I exclude anything like sweet potatoes from my dinner tonight? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
