This is the week before Thanksgiving, and I know some of you are dreading this day. Some of you are wondering how do I stick to my diet? Will I destroy all the hard work that I've put in? The answer is..... Don't worry about it. No one day or meal is the reason we gain weight. One meal only affects you for four or five hours, so one meal high in carbs shouldn't hurt you too much. If you have been trying your best, for the weeks or months you've been fighting weight.
The concept for that day is - minimize damage. For example, if you're going to be making macaroni and cheese use Dreamfields Pasta
. Dreamfields is low carb, at about five carbs per serving vs. 35 carbs with regular pasta. It's available at most grocery stores, and it's in the pasta aisle and taste the same.
Instead of baking cakes and bread, maybe you could think about a flourless chocolate cake, or a cheesecake made with Truvia
(they have powdered sugar versions of both). If you do end up using regular sugar, at least flourless cakes and cheesecakes are lower carb because they are not made with flour.
You may also want to think about some blood sugar management supplements like Berberine
. If you want additional appetite controlIf you can use Tri-Metabolic Control
. It regulates the hormones leptin and ghrelin which control hunger, satisfaction, and how fat deposits are disbursed.
