Sarah Cox: Hi this is Sarah Cox. Welcome to Low Crab Vegetarian Living. This is day 6 of your Low Crab Diet sample, for you get to see everything that I’m eating for a week. Yeah, day 6 had doubt not fortunate I wake up at 3 o’clock in the morning and I was unable to get back to sleep, so I had breakfast at 3 o’clock I had the last of my Mediterranean Vegetable mixture, which was delicious but it was early and here have lot around, for the rest the morning I couldn’t do really much and I had another breakfast at 6.30, I managed to get myself after the gym. I had a really delicious post workout snack that you will see. Yeah and then I sat on my computer. Few exercise and hard working way and then I had a lunch. Later on the afternoon I went out for a walk to the shops and actually bought myself some more fitness equipment. I’ve got some push up bars, and I bought chest strips. And that was a good trip it took long than I thought, I ended up walking in dark. Had dinner as soon as I got back and protein shake before bed. Were really good day but here the extra snack; extra meal in the morning bounced my calorie account up to the day. We show them placed about, and so that some; take a look what I ate. So I started my day with waking up at 3’o clock in the morning, and I had my Mediterranean omelette those was the lost lot of the mixed Mediterranean next to that I made so that, then I think I will be making that again. So first I made it, and yeah I think it’s going to become my favorite. There by 6.30 I finally got up and had a protein pancake that was my second breakfast. That’s just you remember protein powder egg white powder and some sweetness and some more salt. Went to the gym and I got back then I had my post workout snack which was some strawberries, this is four very large strawberries there, with some Ricotta cheese and I just mixed, to make it taste really sweet and delicious and then I had some snacks well I was sitting at the computer and I had two babybel cheeses, so cheese, I had a hard-boiled egg that you can see there and some different kind of vegetables, and then I got to lunch time and I had these power wraps, this is the low carb wraps, that we have in Australia, it’s the only brand of Low Carb wraps that are available so, they dominate the market and they can pay if they charge in reason price for in sale up to $8, just is in wraps so you can get anyway so its only 3 grams of carbs in each one. Seven grams of protein and I had that with so Avocado and some salad and in the cup you can see some asparagus soup was a actually a very filling lunch, so it was about four clock in the afternoon, by the time I was ready for another snack and I just had some almonds and then you know I got back from my work in half past six at night, so I had some more of like Tofu and vegetable stir fry and yeah latter on at night time probably about night 10 o’clock it was, I had some more protein shake before bed, and that’s the nutritional information again there for you and it’s for calories so one shake, its got 25 grams of protein and only 1.3 grams of carbohydrates and that’s a really good shake that one. Then I ended up with few extra calories as you can see there. My food carbs looks like loose only 57 grams that I had 1740 calories and that worked out to be 13% calories from carbohydrate.
