My plan for the holiday season was to relax, enjoy myself, but try to hold my own. Generally, I succeeded. True, I gained three pounds for the month of December. However, I also ate cookies, cake and a few other things that don’t fit into a regulation low-carb, high-fat diet.
I’m not much for dietary regulations.
Overall, I kept my carb intake under control. The 70 grams of total carbs a day is high for me, and probably explains why I put on a little weight. But my net carbs a day was a reasonable 51 grams. It was a low-carb regime, but not a ketonic regime.
The key number is probably my daily percentage of calories from fat. Sixty-five percent is not a great number for me, at least not for weight loss.
Well, it’s a new year, and we’ll see how things go from here. I have an annual physical exam coming up in early February. I am curious to see the results of the blood work from that.
