Day One

So we have officially started our new diet. I told you that I would fill you in on our stats so that you can keep up with our progress.
These are from Monday morning
Travis: 6'0" 210lbs
His goal is to drop to at least 180lbs and go from there.
Aleacia: 5'8" 120lbs
My goal isn't to drop pounds but to lose the extra fat I have hanging around (can you say muffin top?) I'll be able to gauge my progress by how my pants fit.
The first two weeks are called "induction" it drops you to a low amount of carbs (20 net grams per day) and then after induction you add 5-10 grams per week to find your ideal balance of fat, carbs, and protein.
For ease (because we're lazy) we've decided to eat the same thing everyday, for at least the first week. We may venture a bit by the second week.
Breakfast: eggs, sausage, spinach. (The girls get oatmeal and milk, too)

Lunch: salad greens, broccoli slaw mix, tomatoes, olives, cheese, chicken breast, olive oil and vinegar dressing
(The girls eat chicken, a little bit of salad, and fruit)

Dinner: hamburger with cheese, sautéed onions and mushrooms, salad greens, olive oil and vinegar  dressing
(The girls eat hamburger, salad, and whatever veggies they want)

Travis eats snacks, I never remember to so I add extras into lunch or dinner. He eats a combination of cheese sticks, olives, cream cheese, avocados, celery sticks for snacks.
So there you have it! We're on our way and I'll be sure to keep you updated as we go along.
