The first week of the month is in the bag? How did you do, my fat-burning friends?
If you recall, I had been slacking a little in my lifestyle. My weight was stable, but my body fat percentage was creeping up. I have one thing to blame . . . NUTS!
I needed to be accountable to myself and you (thank you for those of you that have reached out with encouragement and requests for help)!
1. Tracking all food in Carb Manager
2. Weekly meal planning menus
3. One 36 – 42 hour fast weekly on Tuesdays, 18:6 all other days
4. No nuts
5. No sugar substitutes
Check, check, check, check, and checkity-check on all five this week!
My result? Holy Moly! I’m pleased that my body fat percentage went down. Woohoo! And it went down quite a bit–way more than I expected in one week. Here’s a visual of the 2.0% drop:
AGAIN, I blame the NUTS! Goodness gracious.
I don’t expect a 2.0% drop each week this month, but I’ll embrace it this week. I meticulously stuck to my goals and my meal plan. Except today–today I won’t be having grilled salmon as planned because I am going to visit my parents. I’ve told my mom to just make some hamburgers on the grill to keep things easy for her.
I just discovered the “Reports” in my CarbManager app. Just for fun, I downloaded my weekly summary of macronutrients and daily food log. I’ve stuck it in my Subscriber Resources if you’d like to take a peek.
MY GOAL for this upcoming week: UP my PROTEIN. I am striving to get my protein to 30% daily WHILE staying in ketosis. If an increase in protein kicks me out of ketosis, well then, I would just scale it back a bit. I am confident it will only help me develop lean tissue and cut my body fat.
If you want to tweak your macronutrients, here’s a few calculators I suggest:
I have a free gift for you!
