It was a good week. I kept my daily averages to 34 net carbs and just under 2,000 calories, with 73% of my calories coming from fat, all identical to the week before. (If nothing else, I’m consistent!)
As a result, I lost almost two pounds. My weight dropped from 229 to 227.2 pounds. For my low-carb reboot, now entering its third week, I’m down 4.8 pounds.
There were a couple challenges. On Thursday, we ate out at our favorite Chinese restaurant in the area, which had been closed a year following a fire. The food was great, and the service friendly and attentive, just as before. I ate a cup of egg-drop soup, a patty of pork egg-foo yung, and a small portion of beef with broccoli. No rice, of course, but I did eat the fortune cookie. The challenge came in getting the nutritional facts of the meal correct for my food-log. I did my best. Similarly, on Saturday, Anita and I made our monthly trip to Costco, and as usual there were plenty of free food samples to be had. So I had some, and again I estimated my nutritional intake as best I could.
Since I lost weight, I figure my record-keeping was reasonably accurate.
As last week, my goals are to lower my carbs/ net carbs a little (down to 40/ 25), and to increase my percentage of calories from fat by a few points. However, I seem to be burning body fat, with good nutrition and no suffering, so I’m generally happy!
For now, anyway.
