Day 2 of a planned 2 days of eating
Blood sugar 109 mg/dL


👍🏾 Went for a 5 mile 🏃🏾 run (suppose to be a 7 mile run, but, I did it in 44 minutes, and it was late, and got dark)
👎🏾 Did NOT keep my carbs below 50 (hit 115)
👍🏾 Keep my protein below 100

Yet, I still lost weight.

However, it’s just *BS* at this point. After tracking my numbers (and more importantly LOOKING at them) , I know how to game the numbers. As I sat on the couch playing video games, with a friend who has known me for my entire adult life and saw me be ‘obese’ for 30 years (and is now facing his own weight struggles), I explained to him that, as I was eating a bag of Frosted Flakes, the food was not going to go to my body as fat, only to leave my body based on my calorie deficit.

I explained that I would go for a run that will mostly just shift my water weight around. This water weight is a calculation primarily influenced by the amount of glucose in my system and the amount of glycogen in my muscles (that I was about to try to deplete).

What was NOT happening is burning fat. I don’t know about other people, but, I don’t burn fat when I am pounding carbs and ‘excess protein’.

So, yeah, my current loss is seriously just ‘water weight’, and if I keep this up I will, as soon as I stop exercising so hard, and my glycogen stores fill up again, have a HUGE jump in weight (like I do every weekend).

This is what happened last week:

Fri 15th (173 pounds):
calories: 1738
protein: 109.66g
carbs: 107.76g

Sat 16th (172 pounds):
calories: 1676
protein: 113.32g
carbs: 91.52g

Sun 17th (172 pounds):
calories: 1910
protein: 105.00g
carbs: 79.00g

Mon 18th (172 pounds):
calories: 1566
protein: 126.66g
carbs: 46.34g

Tue 19th (176 pounds):
calories: 930
protein: 72.00g
carbs: 9.00g

This is how I look so far this week:

Fri 22nd (170 pounds):
calories: 1655
protein: 100.00g
carbs: 95.00g

Sat 23rd (170 pounds):
calories: 1535
protein: 96.00g
carbs: 115.50g

Sat 24rd (168 pounds):
calories: ??
protein: ??
carbs: ??

The good news is that this weekend is NOT a 3-day weekend so I will go back to my ‘no solid food’ fast on Monday.

My ‘no solid food’ fasts STOP the *damage* of going multiple days of not burning fat.

This allows my body to switch to actually burning fat rather than just shifting water weight around.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!

Good luck at your party tonight. Don’t forget to have fun. I know you have a goal in mind but it’s nothing your fasting can’t handle during the week 😀👍

Also nice job on keeping your carbs relatively low (115) not bad considering.

@CrashtestDawnie - Thanks for the support! So far today... 👎🏾 Did not run 👎🏾 Ate 'mixed nuts' (almost as bad as eating only cashews) … and the party hasn't even started yet! 🤣😜

Good luck staying on top of it adef! Sounds like Wak-a-mole, with fasting being a huge hammer that gets 'em all at once. Canned nuts became a big issue for me when I gave up cellophane bag snacks. I'm not a sugar addict / craver, but gosh I love salt.
