So I am really going to focus on my carb/protein intake this month. Even though I am not eating wheat I still think I get to many carbs and probably not enough protein. So I am going to try and keep track as much as possible for the next few weeks and see what happens.

Breakfast:

3 turk saus.    1 carb     13g protein

2 eggs             2g carb   12g protein

grated cheese        ?         ?

 

Workout:

Was supposed to be 4 min of presses 2 min ea hand. I did 10 reps in the 1st minute with my left hand and then could not press one single more rep.  Not sure what happened but it just was not happening. Did press for the 2 min with the right hand and got in 17 reps. This was all done with the 35.

Then 15 2 arm swings with the 53(going a little lighter than normal since I have had a little twinge in my back) on the minute for 10 minutes

Practiced my clean and jerk since it's been awhile since I had done those.

 

Lunch:

Chicken burger      2g carb           22g protein

4 baby carrots       8g carb

broccoli

cucumbers

sauteed onions and zucchini in butter

2 tbs ranch dressing     3g carbs

10 almonds

 

Snack:

15 almonds

 

Dinner:

ground beef with zucc. acorn squash, corn     I realize that this meal had a little more carbs than I probably should have had.

 

Ran 2.3 miles around 7:45.   Perfect night for a run. And I felt really good about it. One of my best runs so far! I will be running a 5k in the beginning of Nov and another 5k in the end of Novemeber so I need to start running a little more to get myself ready!

 

1 tablespoon of peanut butter after my run    7g carbs     7g protein

 

So all in all not sure how I really did today. Hopefully ok! Probably not enough protein and too many carbs! AGGHHHH!

From what I understand, any carbs from veggies are in a way, "free". I believe that's due to the fiber content, and not to mention veggies are awesome for you! It's the carbs from fruit & starch carbs like potatoes you have to worry about. Also, Jim has always said that you want to aim for 1-1.5g of protein per kilogram of body weight

 

Here is a calculator:

Also, here is a great article from "Mark's Daily Apple" (The Primal Blueprint), which addresses the carbohydrate curve and where you want to keep yourself depending on your goals.

Hope this helps!! =)
