Day 1 of a planned 2 days of eating

Day 2 of 14 days of the "Challenge" with @SharonsVictory: No 'Binging' (more than 100 carbs) for two weeks

The challenge with @SharonsVictory is already working for me because I avoided the hamburger I wanted to eat at lunch ๐Ÿ˜Š I hit my โ€˜goalโ€™ of less than 100 carbs with only 7 carbs to spare ๐Ÿ˜œ I just missed her goal of less than 2,000 calories, by 6 calories. This isnโ€™t my goal, but, when I limit my carbs, I end up limiting my calories.

However, I am not surprised the scale still went up on me. The issue I feel is protein. โ€˜Excess proteinโ€™ (for me, more than 60g a day) will be converted to fat. While I donโ€™t agree with all the things in this article, many things are true including the indigestion and nausea: https://www.eatthis.com/what-happens-when-you-eat-too-much-protein/

However, high carbs are still worse for me, so I am sticking to the plan. At least 'one' of the three macros has to go up when you eat. Higher fats (without increasing the carbs or the protein) is actually really hard and I do not find them โ€˜fillingโ€™.

The real answer is to just-eat-less but, that is what I do during the week. On the weekends I need to mentally let go. So, my hope is that the effects of the high protein wont be as bad as the effects of high carbs.

๐Ÿ˜Ž Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!

Additional Challenge with your current one, at least:45 Minutes of Exercise 6 days a week (during the Exercise Routine keep your heart rate above 120+). I bet you will lose weight, at least 5 lbs in the two weeks. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ

high protein should works...though I know too much protein can be stored in the body as glucose...that crazy liver!

Wish I had the link to a study that tested refined macros on people. In a nutshell, the refinement made macros have similar effect on body weight. Refined proteins can therefore be seen as refined carbs. I recall Dr Edes presented the study in a presentation. All the more a reason for considering reduced use of industrial powders, no matter the macro group it comes from. Think it can contribute greatly on stability. Congrats on setting new limits. Hope they work out well.

@HCB - So far the high protein is hitting me way harder than the high carbs ๐Ÿฅบ
