Hi recently I became interested in the Paleo diet which I think means no grains, legumes, refined sugar, processed foods, etc. (and apparently also no dairy products and minimal fruits and starchy carbs) It is very low in carbs. I had been eating some foods that were about 50-70% carbs.
Lately I’ve been having a lot of diet jelly since it has about 0.2% carbs (but 1% protein - after the water is added that is). Until right this minute I had assumed that since it seemed to only have artificial sweeteners (953, 955, 950) it had next to no calories - similar to the diet lemonade and Coke Zero I have. Also it said 1g of protein per 100g and I thought that was based on the jelly crystal weight… It says it has 29 kJ or 7 calories per serve. But now I’ve seen that one sachet is considered to be 4 serves! That’s still pretty low in calories though.
There are about 10 flavours of the 16 available at my supermarket…
I linked to the raspberry and licorice with green tea flavour which I’m looking forward to. (I only discovered that lately).
I’ve lost about 3 kg in the last few days. (I was 80 kg though I’m quite skinny except for a fairly big belly and some man boobs - what they call “skinny fat”) I think it has a lot to do with the jelly I’ve been eating but also due to me eating lots of celery, eggs, bacon and fish. (plus normal foods for dinner which my housemate cooks - meat and veggies) I also eat a original recipe leg from KFC for lunch when I work - I used to have a “hot n spicy” one but then I noticed it had more carbs and calories. I’ve stopped having frozen drinks even though they’ve $1 and I used to eat burgers for lunch.
