Yes, You CAN Eat Low-Carb While Enjoying Yourself On A Cruise

With food everywhere on a cruise, how do you eat low-carb?
It's back to real life again after a fabulous cruise on the Carnival Ecstasy to Cozumel and Progreso, Mexico. WOW, what a time getting to meet so many amazing people who have been a part of my life through this blog and my forum ! I'll be posting lots of pictures of the people who went and some of the things we did together while on board in another post, but I wanted to share with you pictures of exactly what I ate while I was on board the ship for the five-day cruise.
Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to keep on livin' la vida low-carb when you go on a cruise as long as you keep that steadfast resolve to make better choices for the sake of your weight and health. That's exactly what I did on this cruise as you will see from the pictures of my food for the week. I'm pleased to announce I did not gain a single pound while I was gone and I ate VERY well, too! Kudos to Carnival for offering a low-carb cheesecake and sugar-free chocolate cake for people following a sugar-free lifestyle. WOO HOO!
Click on the date to see a detailed description of the foods featured in these photos as well as a recap of that day's worth of meals from my menus blog:
Anyone who thinks I was depriving myself on this cruise doesn't know what they're talking about! I LOVED every morsel I put in my mouth and would not have wanted it any other way. Even when I ate a very small bite of chocolate cake on the last night, it was so gross to me because it was WAY too sweet. I was happy with the way I ate and will DEFINITELY eat low-carb anytime I go cruising again in the future. The bottom line is yes, you CAN eat low-carb while enjoying yourself on a cruise.
We'll be doing another cruise in January 2009 as a "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" one, so stay tuned for more details about that coming in May or June. Hope you can join us next year! :D
