Starting weight = 212.0 lbs.
Ending weight = 212.4 lbs.
I’ve been within a pound of my current weight for six weeks. I guess this is a stall.
Another stall, I should say. Earlier I stalled around the 220 pound level. Of course, it is only a “stall” because I’m still desiring to lose weight. If I were at my target weight (199 pounds), and stayed at that weight for weeks on end, it wouldn’t be a stall.
It would be a plan.
My daily intake averages weren’t bad, but they are averages. There were ups and downs over the week. For instance, last Friday (October 16), I somehow managed to consume 107 grams of carbs. It wasn’t a single meal that did it. About a third of carbs were from fiber (35 grams), leaving 72 grams of net carbs, but that’s still a lot for me in one day. In fact, I more than doubled my daily average for total carbs and net carbs on that day. My percentage of calories from fat was only 65%.
In contrast, on Wednesday (October 14), I consumed only 31 grams of carbs, including 11 grams of fiber, for a net carbs of just 20 grams. My percentage of calories from fat on that day was 73%.
As I said, if my goal was to hold steady, all would be fine. But to lose weight, I need a stricter approach. I’m not sure if I need to fast (or fat fast), or if just adhering to an “induction” diet (never exceeding, say, 25 grams of net carbs for a day) would do it.
I know one thing: I will avoid eating 100 grams of carbs in a day this week!
