I've been living a 'low carb' lifestyle for many years, but falling on and off the wagon. Two years ago, I got myself in gear with eating whole-foods (animal protein, veggie, dairy, nuts, some fruit) and HIIT weight/cardio mix exercises (5 hrs/week). Lost 10 sizes (16 to 6) and 35 lbs (I'm a 38 y-o woman, 5'2"). Gained lots of muscle too. Then plateau'ed and gained back aboug 5-10 lbs (fluctuating). Been stuck until about 3 weeks ago when I discovered MDA and re-committed.
I've been so encouraged by my recent ability to forego all grains/starches/sugars. Previously, I'd allow myself "just a bite" and "just a nibble" and would become prone to night-time carb binges. I'm really committed to avoiding all that stuff now. I'm excited about this challenge!!
My goal: Lose 8 lbs. (current 148)
1. NEAN (Not Even A Nibble) on sugar, starch, grains of any kind. 100%.
2. Exercise 5x week. Increase 'primal' style WOs.
3. Limit coffee (with half-n-half) to 2 cups per day. Tea or black coffee the rest of the time (and water, of course)
4. Journal daily.
