Day 1 of a planned 5 days of โ€˜no solid foodโ€™ fasting

Finally made it to the gym yesterday ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

I was able to lift my max, but, I was not able to make it completely through my normal sets. My lack of weight gain after all the carbs explains why. The carbs produce glucose and normally a lot of that glucose turns to glycogen to be stored in my muscle tissue to be used for weight lifting.

However, the human body *must* retain water to bind glycogen to muscle tissue (using hydrogen bonding). If carbs are consumed, but, water is not being retained, the glycogen storage, at my usual weight lifting levels, is-not-happening.

Where is that glucose from the carbs going? From what I can figure the only other place is to be stored as fat ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿฅบ

Yeah, not-what-I-want. I need to get my weight lifting back up to at least twice a week. When I โ€˜carb upโ€™ I will experience a greater weight-gain on the scale, but, I figure *less fat retention*.In the end, my fat level is all that matters, because โ€˜waterโ€™ always comes and goes.

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

Happy Monday. I tried to change up my routine and eat before my strength training but for some reason it threw me off. Back to fasting before for me
