Low Carb Living!

Finally I Can Eat Healthy Again

I’m feeling better than I was yesterday. The strep throat will be gone by this weekend. I’ve been completely low carb the last two days and can once again eating vegetables without the excruciating pain (sort of).

The infection did spread to my left ear and my jaw. So there are moments, like when I ate a celery stalk this morning, that I experience a slight stabbing pain. But that too is starting to fade.

My appetite isn’t quite back yet. For the last two days I’ve only ate breakfast and dinner. Mainly because I’m just not hungry…and my 5 hour power nap in the middle of the day.  Who knew strep throat was so exhausting?

Despite my lack of appetite I’m not looking forward to stepping on the scale this weekend. Other than scrambled eggs, I ate nothing I would consider healthy. That’s because only the high-carb stuff — bread and chicken noodle soup — didn’t hurt (as much) going down.

No doubt about it, strep throat is a temporary diet killer.
