Food & Exercise Diaries, Starch Solution

Day 1: September 15th

Day 1/23

I’m excited to get back to sharing my food with you all! Today was the first day of my little Starch Solution challenge (which really isn’t much of a challenge), and it felt great to get back to eating more whole foods. Although, I ended up being stuck on campus for longer than I’d planned and had my emergency protein bar. I think I’ll make some protein bars of my own with less processed stuff in them to take to campus once I get some time!

I also realized I went a bit overboard on the dates for a Starch Solution-based diet… dried fruit is one of the things that it explicitly says is not a great choice. 😛

Also, I was even more HCLF than my goal, because I managed to get 80% carbs!
