1999- Dx Prolactinoma
8-25-2012 - Lucas born via C-section at 38 Weeks 2 days
Yesterday my mom breaded some chicken and in the pan fried it just enough to color both sides and than put it in a deeper pan added some heavy cream, some white cooking wine, some thyme, salt and pepper, and the main ingridient sliced mushrooms (she used canned). Let me tell you it was amazing and I was even able to add 1/3 of a cup of cooked rice and my numbers were under 120 for both lunch and dinner.
Todays dinner was some home made soup, one peace of chicken fried in oven and cabbage salad.
How many carbs are you ladies eating with your meals? Some of these seem too low-carb to me. I'm supposed to eat 30 at breakfast, 45 at lunch and dinner, 15 for daytime snacks, and 20 before bed. I know if I go much below those numbers I have ketones in my urine the next morning. The first couple weeks I was dealing with GD I had ketones most morning and lost a couple pounds, which my OB was not happy with at all.
So what challenges me now is getting enough carbs along with protein, fat, and veggies. I used to be a very carb heavy eater--was vegetarian for 10 years--so I enjoy that part of the meal. But I find I get so full when I eat all of what I'm supposed to eat, including the protein and by the end of the meal I feel like I'm forcefeeding myself. Suggestions?
I had kale, sausage, tomato an sweet potato soup. It was yummy.
RS_Bride. I get 30 carbs for everything, snacks & meals. My plan with DD was identical to your current plan but my program changed their diet plan very shortly after I had DD.
I do not test for Ketones this time. Apparently there was some research that it's not that helpful?
Last night I made a pita pizza on a whole wheat pita. I covered it first with olive oil and garlic, then added cheese, chicken and zuchinni (no tomato sauce). It really satisfied my pizza craving!
I'm a vegetarian so this one is good for a meatless monday.
