Lifting Day
150 carbs planned

🍴 Yesterday I stuck to only drinking protein shakes. But, I drank 900 calories and 18 carbs (10 net carbs) of them! Not exactly a 'diet' day :) But, it did keep me from going on a 'carb fest' by not eating 'solid food'.

πŸ‹πŸΏ Because I am lifting today, I am planning to eat more calories than I plan to expend and 10x the net carbs that I consumed yesterday. When I consume carbs it allows me to 'lift heavy'. Building muscle is my primary goal right now.

⏳ I am actually happy that my weight has gone up. I am getting really tired of eating so much! As soon as I hit 180lbs I plan to go back to my 5 day a week fasts until I get back down to 160lbs. Having the 'empty stomach feeling' is to feel at peace.

Have a great day everyone!

Great job! It’s weird seeing you gaining, but I’m excited to see your muscle building progress! πŸ’ͺ That’s going to be my phase 2 after I get to my first goal weight.

Sometimes reading your plan makes me dizzy! I could NEVER figure out how to do all those different things in such a specific order and stay sane! You, on the other hand, are doing amazing with it! Keep on going!!

Try tracking your bulk/cut phases in percentages instead of body weight... it'll make it easier as you get higher in weight. Try phrases like "when I reach 110% of my current weight..." or "when I add 5-10% body fat..." then "...I'll start slimming down" πŸ‘

Looks like you found a way to tame the beast. Good job!

@chrisw77 - I seriously considered using body % to control my 'bulking period', but came to the conclusion that for 'spiritual' reasons I need to use 'calendar time' (perhaps 2 weeks) for 'bulking'. Overconsumption for longer than that puts my mind in a 'more more more' place that works great, until it doesn't. I am simply not the 'master of the universe' and I simply do not have 'control' over my body.

@chesgreen - Actually the opposite buddy! In my journal today I said that on Monday I am 'tapping out' and returning to fasting. Bulking and lifting get great results, but I find that doing it for extended periods is 'Spiritually' damaging :(

@adefwebserver, my "taming the beast" comment was referring specifically to your consumption of the protein shakes to avoid a carb binge. I support what ever protocol one chooses to avoid binges as long as it doesn't harm self or others LOL.

@chesgreen - Got it! Understood :)

I feel ya, man. You know your limitations and if it works that way for you, don't change! Just throwing you tricks I've picked up along the way, so some might stick... others might be useless. You've got my support in any case! 😊
