My visit to the scale this morning (Saturday) showed me weighing an even 218 pounds. That’s up two-tenths of a pound since Friday morning, but down 2.2 pounds since Monday morning.
I have one more day to go in this “Bust the Stall” week. I guess if I hold even until my end of the week weigh-in on Monday, I can claim success, but I’d sure like to lose another pound.
Or two. A number beginning with 216 would be great!
Yesterday I consumed 1,939 calories, with 75% coming from fat. Along with the fat, I had 62 grams of carbs, including 26 grams of fiber), and 73 grams of protein. I’m thinking the protein was a little low, and the carbs a little high. Still, with 75% of calories from fat, you’d think I might have lost a couple tenths instead of gaining a couple.
Well, maybe you wouldn’t, but I would!
Today I’ve consumed 2,086 calories, with 69% coming from fat. I had 58 grams of carbs, including 20 grams of fiber, and 113 grams of protein. We finished eating at 7:15 p.m., and I won’t eat again until after 7:15 a.m. tomorrow.
I think tomorrow I will seriously restrict my carbs, getting the total carbs for the day down to 25 grams or fewer. Again, that’s total carbs, not net carbs. My Ketonix reading this morning was good at 63, indicating some degree of ketosis, but I have blown a 73 in the past.
I need to keep the “LC” part of the diet in mind, as well as the “HF.”
Will I but the stall? Or will it bust me? Stay tuned!
