Husband had business trip. I went with him. I ate very well. Yet, I gained 1.2 pounds over 3 days. Would like a little input. I know there are some pros out there. 1. Breakfast. Hotel had a buffet. I either had one of two things -Four bites of plain scrambled eggs and one fourth of a sausage -small bowl of oatmeal with nuts 2. Lunch I know a place I like in that city and each day got a medium plain salad with grilled chicken and cilantro dressing. 3. Dinner -red lobster Shrimp cocktail as main course Salad, no croutons and balsamic vin. dressing Vegetable (greens beans and mushrooms) Three bites of husband’s mash potatoes -ouback Small sirloin steak Potato with pat of butter Salad no croutons With vinaigrette dressing Got about two skinny lattes at Starbucks over the days. We drive home and that night I picked up a Panera Cobb Salad. Anyway, I seemed to have gained 1.2 pounds (real/true) even though I did not have snacks or bread and ordered carefully. I took a water pill last night, so there is no extra water in my body. This is the real thing even after such a short trip. Restaurant food Sxcjs. But I do see where I had a few extra carbs and fats. I’m on one mg of prednisone currently and I’m wondering if that darn drug is still messing with me. For you pro dieters ...lol... any thoughts? Thanks A.
