as the header says, I am proud that I now succeeded in almost 4 weeks of strict diet without any serious failure.
We used to go out eating a lot (see the photo, our favourite restaurant is a Lebanese one, they have great meals, the one on the left (picture is still from August) is salat, rice and falafel (which you know is not very low protein diet) with a garlic sauce.
In the last four weeks, we went out eating two times. I only ordered salad and the other time French Fries (and since we know the owners well, I was allowed to weight my portion French Fries before eating, so I could write down in my food diary the amount of phe).
Well, I was kind of astonished. I assumed (without having further looks or investigations 😉 that a small portion of French Fries “wouldn’t have that much protein”. I was on 500 mg / day and it represented 344 Phe… :-O
I also try to send in blood levels every week to have a better overview and keep the motivation. Levels have been going constantly downwards, although in a very slow way, but that was predictable, since I was ill a few weeks ago plus I am still taking care of my calorie intake.
I hope it’s going great for you too. And if not, remember to always try the best you can. ❤ We all have our difficulties from time to time and being restricted is especially hard when it comes to food matters.
Have a great Wednesday!
