      Lollollol daejamurrachan ...I used to do a csa basket split w a friend and one year it was kale as our green almost every damn week so I learned to tolerate it...but I am picky as hell. Bacon frittata and mixed w butternut squash are basically the only ways I like it.

      Am walking to subway today.

      I have been planning out my meal plan the day before which has let me stick to 1500-1600 for 3 days now. Let's see if this is sustainable. I like making food choices ahead of time instead of in the moment. (And if I crave a random thing I put in next day's plan.) It lets me think less about food overall.

        Well, the only important thing I've noticed about eating in that range consistently is that every few weeks to couple of months I am hungry, and hungry, and hungry. All the time. I end up eating between 50% and 100% of my normal daily average for about a week. However, what I have also found is that afterward, it's fairly easy again. This comes with the standard caveat of we are different people with different biochemical needs and make-up, so this may or may not pertain to you.

          When I did this before I noticed a similar thing, but, my stopgap solution is that if I am truly hungry (not bored, not mad, not "oh hey I walked past a bakery".. hungry) I allow myself to eat up to maintenance (so 2100 - 2300ish depending on steps etc) for the day. 1 day like that every 2-3 weeks can keep me on track indefinitely. If I try to eat less then 1500 tho, for even 2 days, I will eat the universe.

            Today is diet day 5. Doing minor carb up (57 net for the day) bc I REALLY wanted a stupid avocado lox sammich. Usually I can fob myself off w a salad but, the rye bread is intergral to the flavor combo. It was my reward for dragging my tail to the gym.

            And it really did involve dragging. I felt super sluggish this morning. Idk if it is re-accustoming body to lower carb, general stress, mismanaged electrolyte, or sickish. But my bag felt like it was 500 lbs.


            Bc I was lagging I lowered my expectations.

            back and biceps day
            4 supersets, 10 reps, 15lbs
            alt hammers
            Bent rows
            Daybreak but shrugs were not great, so set 1 &3 was stubborning through shrugs and 2&4 were cat/cows.

              Adjustment, or just an off day. Humans are very complex.

                  Sharing the pain with losing half your blood volume during that time (joking about half, but , ahem...). And nothing seems to work long enough to appease this. Courage, you will feel better in a few days...

                    Weekly digest:
                    1 down day, check
                    2-3 gym days, check. 2 on my own, 1 class
                    1 day over 10 miles, fail. Highest was 7, week total was 35
                    not bad. Caloric average 1667, including several small chocolates and 1 2k cal (but of on plan foods) day. 135g protein, 43g net carbs (so def low but not keto).
                    still high

                      I have such a hard time sticking to a calorie limit. So I made some bonus days or refeeds. So during the week I restrict to 2100-ish calories/day and then Saturdays are a 50/50 mix of carbs/proteins and Sunday is a day to bring on them carbs. I still rarely break 2400cal/day on the weekend.

                      But the refeeds days def help with the overall carb cravings I have because I have something to look forward too.

                      Nice to see your still going hard at it!

                      Also, is that 43 carbs an avg per day or for net for the entire week?

                      Comment


                        aveoturbo average per day. Per week that would allow no veggies even omg... I am not an obligate carnivore.

                        And I totally did a refeed Sun/Mon. Sunday was just... bread and jam and all the chorizo in my fridge. Now I am out of jam tho, and not buying more. Yesterday I was just starving and got a huge pile of sushi. So this weeks averages will be off, whatever. Back on track today. (And my deficit is not large enough to support a weekly refeed like this but... every 2-3 weeks could be a thing.)

                          What I do concerning refeeds is five days a week of eating at a deficit, and two days a week of eating at maintenance. My (tried and tested) TDEE is 2,400, so it's 1,900 five days a week and 2,400 two days a week, which is a weekly deficit of 15%, which I think is fine for non crash dieting. Some weeks, I'll simply zig zag my calories to reach a 10% deficit, so I'll even have some days higher than 2,400. Having to eat at a deficit every single day, even for a week, simply makes me miserable LOL

                            Bah, yesterday post gym did not post.

                            sleep_twitch that might be what I end up doing if I insist on not quite keto. I was able to sustain huge deficits on that but, prolly bc no carbs helped control hunger better. Also tho, starting a diet when I sm as anxious as I am atm AND it is shark week was not a fair test lol.


                            Yesterday I purposely did not meet step goal and did short but sweat induced gym sesh-

                              So..... yesterday I took a nice walk from work to dr.

                              Today, I stupidly thought I could go to gym. But. Excision ended up needing like 35 stitches (15 outside rest internal) and I really do not want to pull any of them out. And it hurts. And it is where I would wear pack if going hiking. So I am sitting still bc aparently this was a larger procedure then I thought it was and I need tylenol >.>
