Food

9AM - Food
Ever since my friend John gave me that blood-glucose test a few weeks ago, I have changed the foods that I eat.  Before that, I never paid much attention when I went to a grocery about what I bought.  For example, in addition to the regular foods, I usually bought a couple of donuts.  Also, I always bought cookies, Snickers, Hershey's Chocolate bars and stuff like that.

Now shopping is sooooooo different.  I read the "nutrition facts" on everything.  It is amazing to read about how much fat, sodium and carbohydrates there are in food.  I find that it is very easy to make a choice that is so much more healthy for me and does not leave me craving for something else.

However, I do not feel that I am sacrificing food enjoyment.  When I go out to eat for a hamburger, I do not order fries.  And do not order soft drinks either.  I do eat the bun!

5PM - Lightnin Jack's BBQ
My main food objective is to reduce carbohydrates. Lightnin Jack's BBQ serves a rack of ribs which are low in carbohydrates. Great!
A low carbohydrate meal!
