Mahi Mahi burgers are back at Trader Joes in the freezer section. They were gone for awhile…but they are back. They are low in calories and only ONE carb! And thy are really tasty!
I had a large delicious burger. It was so good! You don’t have to starve on a diet. When you aren’t on maintenance like I am, you might have to eat 2/3 of what I ate, but you can still eat it. That is the cool part!
So, here is a picture of my burger.
So, let’s look at the carbs of my choices. I gave up eating 40g of carbs by having my burger as a salad and not in a bun!
–My burger had NO carbs, and had a lot of protein.
–cheese had less than 1 carb.
–My couple of slices of tomatoes had maybe 1 g of carbs.
— My pickles had about 1 g of carbs.
–The lettuce had about 2g per cup and I had about 2 cups. So, lettuce=4g of carbs.
Here is the hairy part.
–You have to be so careful what you get. I ordered sautéed onions. This could be a problem. If you look online at thecounterburger.com and look up their nutritional information, you will see that the whole plate worth is about 9g of carbs. But, I only ate half. So, 4.5 for me!
–I had the Dijon balsamic vinaigrette, but I only had half, so instead of 15, I had maybe 10g of carbs.
I ate this whole thing and only had about 21g of carbs, which is really good for a larger meal. I had to think carefully when ordering. I tasted someone’s cookie and probably had another carb, but I did not have a dessert there. I waited until later for Carbolite as my last protein of the day out of 6 and consumed 15g of carbs with that. As long as I am between 50 and 100g of carbs a day (the closer to 50, the better), I am ok.
So you can have good food on a diet, just select carefully. If I had the honey mustard or ranch dressing, I could have sliced off another 5g of carbs.
So, eat, but choose wisely.
