Quick post just to note that this week was not so good for weight loss. Didn't particularly change my eating habits, but a head cold basically shut me down all week.
I'm actually a pound heavier then I was last week, so I only lost 1 lb from last Saturdays binge (still was worth it.) But this week was a weird one. One day I'd gain .2 lbs next day I'd lose .6 back and forth all week.
I can't think of anything specific that would have caused it except being sick screwing up my metabolism (I didn't cheat during the week.)
Let me amend that, I have been tinkering with a microwaveable cake recipe, that should have had no impact on my carb levels. The ingredients were all low carb and sugar free. But perhaps that screwed me up, or at least contributed to it.
I will skip mid-week experimentation for the time being and only try things like that on the weekends from now on just to test. Or perhaps when I'm well again I will empirically test it to see what impact it has.
I also found a source for Mung Bean noodles (or threads) but not the flour. I boiled some last night, and the results were interesting. They have about half the Glycemic index of flour based pasta, at 29 vs 61+, but they boil up crystal clear and about the thickness of spaghetti. Also not sticky like wheat pasta, which means the sauce doesn't really stick to them... nor do they stick to themselves at all.
No flavor to speak of, but a pleasant texture.
Back to sucking down cold medicine...
*edit* So many typos!
