Lifting Day
200+ carbs planned

🍴 Today there is an all-day work function and they are serving breakfast and lunch. Since I plan to 'carb up' for weight lifting 🏋🏿today anyway, I plan to go ahead and eat whatever carb filled stuff they give me. There is a 90% chance this will send me into a 'carb binge' (an insatiable desire for more carbs), and I will be doing good if I can end the day with less than 200 carbs and under 2k calories.

If I were fasting I would simply fast. Fasting works for me, period.

But if I am eating, I know that I have not been able to 'control' my eating in the past, and nothing has changed.

If I wanted to lose weight, I would, instead, fast during the day today and only eat a low carb meal tonight. I am 'Grateful' that I have this 'choice'. This is a 'Blessing'. But, I am in my 'bulking' period for body building. Plus, I plan to do a 'cut' (lose weight) starting on Monday anyway.

⏳ Yesterday @Senseiande wrote in his journal:

"True Bmi is when you are at your strongest... most healthy and lowest weight...without losing strength or vitality.. period.."

Well, 174 is NOT my "healthy and lowest". Right now, I feel "fat and sluggish". I am counting down the days until my 5 day 'no solid food fast' that begins on Monday.

During the fast I plan to continue my weightlifting. @Senseiande gave me some suggestions on how to lift without 'carbing up'. When I am on a 'fast' I am <10 carbs a day so that will be the time to give his suggestions a try...
174.0 lb Lost so far: 33.0 lb.    Still to go: 10.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Good luck with the work function - at least it landed on a carb day for you so hopefully it won't throw you off - you can do it!!!!

@Nikeit - Thanks! So far I just had a bagel with cream cheese. I bypassed the donuts that would have really set me off. Let's see how lunch goes... :)

I'd rather have the bagel and cream cheese anyway! Great choice for breakfast! Only lunch to go so just one more good choice and you are done!

Hey ADWS, ask Jimmie too, but fasted workouts are not a bad idea at times. You won't get the same performance but you will be draining the glycogen tank and forcing the body to do the fat conversion for more ATP.

Carbs are necessary for increased performance and higher intensity training, but not necessary for training targeting fat loss.

Yeah ended the day at 205 carbs... But, did my full workout and increased the weights. I'm fasting on Monday so this 'carb train' will be coming to a stop soon... :)

@CrashtestDawnie - Yeah I was totally thinking about 🍏🍑🥕🍌 as I pulled up to the McDonald's drive-thru on my way to the gym and ordered a Big Mac… :)

@Becc@ - I hope this plan works for me too! But, when the fast restarts on Monday I will be back in my 'comfort zone'.
