Day 6 of a planned 6 day 'no solid food fast'

Blood sugar 76 mg/dL

πŸ‘ŽπŸΎ Carbs! Two days ago I took in over 20 carbs and over 1,000 calories in πŸ₯› protein drinks and stalled in my weight loss.

🌟 Actually, the πŸ₯› protein powder I use is not pure protein. It has 3 carbs a scoop and I had a LOT of scoops. Plus, I add heavy cream, that while it is listed at 0 carbs... it-has-carbs, and I had a LOT of cream, so there are carbs that are not being tracked. So my Fat Secret log says 20 carbs but it is really almost 30 carbs.

Anyway, yesterday, I took in only 9 carbs and 580 calories and lost 3 pounds. 🌊 Basically, I drank Green Tea all day and even skipped my πŸ₯› protein powder in my morning coffee

πŸ§˜πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ I should do the same thing again today, but, it is the weekend, I have a lot of free time. I will just try to πŸƒ run a lot today.

Have a great day everyone!

@Keilin_4 - Thanks! I had my "Protein Coffee" 20 minutes ago and now I'm starting to feel 'hungry'... :(

I am hungry too, it's not a real hunger, that is anxiety πŸ˜“πŸ˜•πŸ·

@Keilin_4 - I am going to go for a run. That should help :)

Yes, good idea! you still can be hungry but if you are not near to the food you can not eat. 🀨

@Keilin_4 - Hard to eat while running... :)

I feel like I already posted on this... Weird, well anyway You are doing great! You found out what doesn’t work for you and what does in a matter of a couple of days πŸ‘πŸ‘ whoosh whooshπŸ„β€β™€οΈ

I think it’s harder to avoid food when stricken with anxiety than when you are actually physically hungry πŸ˜’πŸ˜•

well now you are losing, getting back to your old program of having your protein powder in the morning may be what you need to stick to except on work out days when you need that extra.

*GASP* You put protein powder in your COFFEE? I've never thought of doing this. Sounds like something I must try. πŸ˜‰

I had some this morning. It's great.

Agree, with the ankle cast, the weekends are long!!

@CrashtestDawnie - Mostly I need to not drink the protein powder (with its carbs) during the day :( [sarcasm]It appears consuming too many carbs on a low carb diet slows weight loss...[/sarcasm]. It appears if I drink only Green Tea during the day I lose weight. Next week will be the test, because today I was hitting the protein powder all day...

@baskington - Next week, I will try the protein powder only in the morning coffee and at night on non-lifting days. Let's see what happens... :) 
22 Sep 18 by member: adefwebserver
@srossca - I am so careful when I am lifting because I know it will REALLY mess me up if I have an injury and can't run and lift like I have been.

Good to hear on your form. I am trying TEMPO & has helped make me stronger. We use less weight & control the bar going down, usually counting :05 seconds & hold for :02 seconds & Power the weight up. The program is 3 weeks long & then we Test the following week using heavier weights & normal Press.
