I am a fan of Woot and it's sister site that sells a different shirt everyday. This was the offering the other day. If I hadn't been so poor I would have ordered one as it speaks of my life. I could really sell my soul for a pancake and with butter and syrup I might give up a kid.
But in reality it has been about a week (minus a small piece of frozen pizza tonight) since I have had a bread-ish kind of carb. I am always being corrected by people when I say I am carb free. I EAT CARBS! I just weed out the bread, pasta, potato, starchy bring me to death shit. I found a low carb/wheat cracker and they are my go to lunch with cheese just about everyday but besides 6-8 of those I have been without the rest for a week tomorrow. The biggest thing is the candy/cake/cookie category which I haven't touched at all in the last 6 days.
The biggest thing I have noticed, besides the sugar crashes from hell, is my temper. I can snap like a convicted felon when I am carb heavy or starting to detox for that matter. I will say the first 3 days sucked but it always does and I knew it was coming. I ate like a horse but mostly cheese and shakes to get over the false carb starve I always get when I try to limit them again. Funny how your body and it's addictions can make you feel hungry just to keep the addiction going. Once you can identify it and fight it with a peanut butter and jelly protein shake you start to win the fight.
Screw You Carb Monster!
