Hi all, this regarding to a situation I believe almost of us encounter due to social life. Yesterday we had family gathering of 4 families (grandparents, parents, kids). I was worried about food because of my diet, I didn't want to hinder my regimen. As you may think, all kinds of foods were there, starting from heavy sweets up BBQ grilled veal meat and chicken.
On the lunch; I checked all the item available and picked the following:
- a plate of garden salad (1 tomato, 1 green pepper, 1/4 onion, and some leafs of lettuce).
- 1 BBQ charcoal grilled chicken breast
- 200g of BBQ charcoal grilled veal beef
and that's it, nothing more. I couldn't think about rice or stuffed grape leafs for example as they were cooked with oil.
Same happened with dinner, nothing were suitable for my diet except grilled chicken and same salad.
I also had 4 cups of firewood tea that was made with sugar
My intake for the day was 300g prtoein, 70g of carbs (most fibers) and 50g of fat as an approximation, and calories were around 2200 kcal
I very worried if what I ate was wrong, I mean, a huge amount of protein in two settings only. What do you think? did I managed the day right, or I had to do something else?
Thanks in Advance
