Okay, so I totally swiped that joke from Active Low-Carber Forums (a site with tons of information and members), but it’s true.
And I’m about to join those friends again, whether I like it or not.
So…a visit to the doctor’s office yesterday didn’t go quite so well as I had hoped. Apparently, the reason I’m still experiencing post-surgical pain is because I’m a fatty.
Well…we knew that, didn’t we?
But now he’s given me a doctor’s recommendation to go on a low-carb, high protein liquid diet. Which basically means I can have either 4 liquid protein drinks a day and no other food at all, or 2 liquid protein drinks and 1 small meal (but cannot eat more than 1,000 calories total in a day, including the protein drinks and all other intake together).
This. Is. Going. To. Suck.
That said, any dieters out there who follow the Red Kitchen Blog (bless your hearts if you do, I’m such a reckless cook!) will be pleased to see that for the next couple (or more weeks) my blog posts will take on a low-carb, low-cal twist while STILL being required to follow the “must be able to purchase ALL ingredients from low-selection discount grocery stores” rule.
I’ve always complained that I can either eat healthily or eat cheaply, but when you try to mix the two, you run into the same three or four diet recipes you’ve always been stuck with until you plateau.
Hopefully, I can use my noggin and try to add a few more ideas to the stack while keeping the grocery bill from getting outrageous on me.
