I was at the lake for 10 days. Usually I gain weight at the lake, even when following my low-carb, high-fat diet. I don’t know why that is. True to form, I gained 2.2 pounds since my last weigh-in on August 10.
Aside from the Lake Factor, I think it’s just that I have a serious carb intolerance. I need to get my daily total carbs under 50 grams a day in order to lose weight.
It could also be that my body has adjusted to an LCHF regime.
In that regard, a reader recently suggested that I try regular intermittent fasting. The idea of an intermittent fast is to throw your body a change-up. Anita has been following a similar “carb-cycling” approach for a few weeks, with weight-loss success.
I’m going to try a 16/8 fast tomorrow (Thursday, August 27) and again on Saturday (August 29). A 16/8 fast is one in which the individual skips breakfast, going 16 hours between the evening meal and the first meal of the next day.
