Start Weight:(04 Oct 13) 212.0 lb
Current Weight:(31 Oct 14) 153.7 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: Tulipgirl6's own diet
performance: Steady

So I hit the 50 pound milestone! Will my chart ever turn green? I am going for another 10!

I'm going to put my basic plan that I started with down here as a reminder to myself:

Calories: 1450
Carbs: 2-3
Protein: 10
Fruits: 2
Fats: 3
Dairy: 2

As of September I am focusing on strength training, and doing cardio 4x / week! I need to re-focus on my nutrition!

Veggies: Unlimited.
Nuts: 6 walnut halves, or 8 almonds, or 1/4 avocado = free
2 green teas
2 fiber / flax / chia drinks
8-12 water

If you are looking at my food log - I usually don't track my veggies. So if it says eggs - it's probably a fritatta or a panful of veggies with an egg mixed in . .. . .

I have also cut out milk . . . . I have a gluten intolerance, so I cut out out bread and pasta . . . .

Working out on a low carb diet
this is very interesting donmur! are you on a ketogenic diet? how many carbs / day do you eat?

Working out on a low carb diet
I added a spoon of coconut oil to my morning snack before my workout; it keeps you very full without getting in your way! I add it to my fiber mix / green tea and I'm good to go for a few hours. Egg whites also work great. And cucumbers with the peel. I find these things help me get through my workout so I'm not at all hungry (I'm usually not hungry first thing in the morning anyway) but they don't make me feel heavy and full so they are not in the way of my exercise either! good luck!

How do you measure your body fat percentage?
you can buy body fat calipers; it's the easiest most accurate way and cheapest too! just go online and google it! it looks like plastic tweezers; health professionals, trainers, use them all the time! just keep in mind lots of things can throw any of these methods off!

Carbs
so, what are the ideas on "reprograming" and improving insulin sensitivity; do we have any choice but to go low carb?
