chrisw77's Journal, 24 June 2018

So, when my grandparents, before there were gyms in every shopping complex, before there were so many WOEs, they did something amazing: they would eat real food. Their generation never really had a serious obesity issue. When grandpa started getting a little jiggly in the middle, grandma just cut back his mashed potatoes and wouldn't let him have pie for a little bit.

I've found my benchmark for what works for me, but I'm starting to see the weight creeping up slooooooowly, so it's time to eliminate the nightly desserts.

I'm right at the body composition I want for my next evolution, so... 🤞

If you’re having “nightly desserts” or enjoy late night snacking, incorporate it into your week as if it was a “regular” meal. Also remember if you weigh yourself in the morning and snack later in the night it’ll slightly increase just because of the time it takes to digest etc. but won’t make any difference by the end of the week

Thanks Dead, but a little further down the rabbit hole: I'm meticulous about tracking my foods: food scale, accurate measurements, etc.. What's in my log is just what I've eaten. I do count the desserts in my dinner in the log (if that's what you mean). I don't do late night snacks because I work from 2-10pm on average. I eat when I get home and pass out soon after. I weigh myself with the same routine each morning. None of the variables have changed. I'm very consistent.

It's not a huge struggle... at the end of the week it balances out, you're right. I drink the same amount of water (1.5 gal) each day, so maybe just anomalous day-to-day retention of some kind lately.

Ah Gotcha, sound like you’re doing just fine, that’s really the way to do it is consistently, which you are, and yes it would just be the fluctuations. For me, my water weight goes up several pounds the day after eating higher sodium foods, even if I have a low amount of calories, but I know it’s just water weight and a few days later when my body loses it & is back to my its regular homeostasis/“normal” range, then the actual weight loss portion shows up on the scale. Although I already have various methods in place so I know exactly what I’m losing weekly so I can adjust when I feel like it. But in the end it’s the weekly total that matters most, & how you’re doing things is just right. 👍🏻

I never thought I'd be such a nutrition geek, but it pays to be a nerd sometimes 😉🤓
