Juniper's Journal, 09 August 2010

Trying to follow the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) way of eating and exercising. I'm still reading the ebook (341 pages!), so I'm not really fully versed on the macronutrients and carb cycling and all that. I'm not in a race with time or anybody, so I'm just going to take my time to perfect this for ME.

I've been doing Atkins for a little under a year and did lose 20 pounds, but gained back 10 of them. I just can't seem to stay on a low-carb eating plan. Plus the amount of fat was just too much for me.

The BFFM plan incorporates only the good carbs, such as fruits, veggies, whole grains, etc, and suggests carb tapering (eating your carbs earlier in the day and limiting them in your last 3 meals), small/frequent/timed meals with calorie tapering, a suggested carb cycling routine to keep your metabolism from going into starvation mode (makes sense!), and a possible cheat meal to conquer any cravings that may arise.

162.0 lb Lost so far: 0 lb.    Still to go: 32.0 lb.    Diet followed N/A.
