Starting weight = 217.8 lbs
Ending weight = 217.4 lbs
It was an odd week. The averages are misleading. I started the week in the middle of a “fat fast,” trying to get 85% of my calories from fat while keeping my calories low (around 1,400 per day in my modified version of a fat fast). I followed this regime for three consecutive days (through Tuesday of this week), and dropped over two pounds.
The hardest part of the fat fast was hitting the 85% target for fat. In fact, I only managed it one of the days, and my average was closer to 80%.
Then, in the second half of the week, I went to the lake. As I’ve noted before, I tend to gain weight at the lake. The air itself seems to be carb-laden. I did my best. We only ate out once, on the way up north on Thursday. Still, my total carbs were in the mid-50s on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
I just don’t lose when my total carbs are in that range, and I may gain. If my daily carb intake had been true to the average shown in the above table, I’d have been OK. But the table’s average reflects some very low carb days during the fat fast, and higher carb days later.
For the week, I lost a half-pound. Ho-hum, but I’ll take it. For the coming week, I’m staying home and eating mindfully.
