First Blog in a Very Long Time

Saturday, May 26, 2018

Ok, so I haven't blogged in well over a year since I tried the LCHF diet. It's a diet. Not a lifestyle change. I could not stay on it for so many reasons. The first being that after 3 weeks, I only lost a pound. So now I'm trying a less extreme version. I don't limit any fruit or veggies, and if I plan out my meals, so if I eat a carb like toast with my breakfast, I won't eat any others for the rest of the day. And I combine this with intermittent fasting. I use the lean gains (or 16:8) version of that program.

So far I've been successful, but it's going at a snail/s pace. Honestly, I don't mind. I think I could do better if my personal life was going well, but with tons of stress due to family issues, it's a bit difficult right now.

Right now I'll hope for something simple, like sunshine. Oh, wait...not so simple. LOL.

    ...but you live in Florida. Isn't that the sunshine state?! emoticon

    Yes, we each have to find the way of eating (WOE) that works for us. And I personally don't care for "food Nazis". I've disconnected from more than one group on FB for that very reason. Just not helpful!

    One thing I did read recently in terms of preventing plateaus is to really vary the caloric intake. Maybe more on a couple of days and lower on others?! It keeps the body guessing; less likely to slow down metabolism.
    Hope your 3-day weekend is lovely!

    Stress does not help with dieting. Hang in there!
