Lots of wine this week. Post holiday, it was tough to work in ADF (alternate day fasting), but I was at least able to stick with OMAD (one meal a day) most days. And lots of wine.
On the 29th, I went to a party that started at 6:30, so I knew I was in for a long eating window. Before I went, I had a meal of pork loin, salad and walnuts. At the party, I ate meatballs with gravy, fried olives stuffed with chicken, and lots of wine (see?). When I returned home (the party was brief), I had a snack of cheddar cheese slices and walnuts.
I’ve been neglecting probiotics completely and this week I started putting a little sauerkraut with inulin powder (prebiotic) in my salad bowl. I haven’t been that consistent, though.
New Years Eve, I took a “during” photo. It looks just like the “before”.
I ate before I went to my sister’s (kielbasa, broccoli with butter, walnuts, chocolate latte, pepperoni). I brought hot wings, celery and dip. I ate some of the meatballs she had (no sauce) and salad. At midnight, we had sparkling cider. I had taken along a slice of coconut cake, but I didn’t eat it until the next day.
Good thing I like leftovers: I ate hot wings on New Years Day and again on January 3.
On January 3, I also reread Jason Fung’s The Diabetes Code and I was particularly interested in learning about the Insulin Index.
