performance: gaining 0.8 lb a week

This is it; I am starting a new way of living. I am 23 years old, 5'7''. I started at 240lbs on November 10, 2011 and I am more motivated than ever.

I always struggled with my weight ever since I was a kid. I went through multiple diets, they were always efficient... but for a short period of time. I had this crazy habit to kick start a diet by stopping to eat for a couple days... now I am doing things differently.

I hate when people take pictures of me, so I am usually behind the camera taking shots. This November I invited friends home and I was not the one holding the camera. When I got the pictures in my inbox the next day I was so shocked... this is what I looked like standing next to my friends ? I never thought there was such a big difference! I knew I was overweight, but when I looked in the mirror it was not that bad. It gave me the kick in the butt I needed to start learning about nutrition and to really ACT.

I thought it would be a good idea to track my food and I was naive enough to start a complex excel sheet to write it down... What a relief when I stumbled across this amazing website the very next day !! Fatsecret has been a revelation for me !

Fatsecret helped me discover :
- The Fat head video which really got me into reading and learning about nutrition
- Great recipes that are easy to make and just taste awesome.
- That I am not alone dieting and that if so many people can do it, I can do it too.

I learned and read about the Atkins diet.
I discovered LCHF and Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt website
Learned how carbs are bad and fat is good.
I watched countless health videos, read scientific researches and health blogs... and now I understand why my weight was out of control.

I am trying a LCHF approach now and I will see how it helps me lose weight. So far I do not feel hungry and I lose weight without too much effort... let's see if I can reach my goal !

I had a lack of potassium as well and I added orange juice to my diet. 1 cup is 500 mg of potassium.

chinese food
I love chinese as well!
I went there this week end and got the tastiest shrimp and chicken with vegetables sauté I have ever had !
I try to avoid rice, noodles and fried things and get plates with vegetables and meat. Scan through the menu, I am sure you will find some tasty meal who is also healthy Smile

The only thing I see that could slow down the weight loss is that the calories you are taking are from a huge amount of carbs... I'd replace them with more protein and healthy fat from meat and such
