Diet....contest?

Postby TheCatt » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:42 am

Restarted again on Saturday when I hit 220 again.

Down to 213.4. I noticed that when I woke up, I was rarely hungry, in general. So I decided to not eat until I was hungry. Which seems to mostly happen around lunchtime. Last night, I think I could have gone without dinner, but ate to avoid being too low in calories. I try now to eat each day between 12pm and 6pm only.

So... unexpected side benefit. I feel WONDERFUL most of the day. Especially in the morning when fasting. My brain is working better, I can focus better, I'm getting a lot of things done, I can follow conversations better , I have more energy. I typically feel better than normal on the keto diet, but the added fasting has put it on hyper drive. It's really weird.

Here's my current diet:

Breakfast - Nothing. I only drink. Water, decaf hot tea (green/white), and 2-3 Diet Dr Peppers until lunch.
Lunch - Fat + heavy. Bacon+Egg+Cheese, or Cheese + pepperoni
Afternoon snack (3-4pm) - Sugar free heavy cream pudding pops (300 calories, almost all fat)
Dinner - Meat + vegetables. (Steak + Asparagus, salmon + broccoli, etc)

I have to travel next week for two days, so that will be my first challenge.

I wake up in the morning with decidedly less brain fog than I used to. I can get going without much prompting... and after I start having my tea + caffeine Im like "WOOOOOOOOO"

One week in, down 7.4 pounds. Obviously a lot of water weight/carb weight there.

So far it feels pretty sustainable. Yesterday, my fed window was super short as I forgot my lunch and had to go home to get it (1pm), then had rock climbing, so had an early dinner (4:30pm). My calories vary a lot day to day. Some days, I've eaten only those 2 meals, other days I add a ~300 calories snack, and one day I ate constantly, like 3,000 calories.

I kinda missing poopin though.

The euphoria is mostly gone. But I still feel better than before I started.

Life's been chaotic, and I'm fat.

That being said, I have managed to start lifting again (upper body only due to knee), and rode my bike trainer twice this week.
