My average daily calorie intake last week was 1952. Some days only 1300, some days 2500, I don't exercise everyday either. As I mentioned in response to all the wonderful feedback I got on my other thread, I really don't feel like I have anything wrong with me, but then I may just have got used to a lower level of normal.
As to the weightloss, since I had my third child in 2005, I've lost over 30kgs (66Ibs). It has had it's ups and downs, for example, I actually got down to 88kgs but then got back on the carb wagon and gained 20kgs again, jesus I was pissed off with myself!! I'm on my way back down again now, I'm 8kgs down since I re-started my low-carb plan.
Another thing, I've always suffered from a really irritating kind of dermatitis, it only manifests on my hands and ankles and (of all friggin places!) around my mouth. I'm wondering if it may be related to dairy intake as this is something I have never given up, not even for a day. As of today I'm going dairy free anyway. I cut down last week but was still drinking cream in my coffee, I've finally run out of that and I had coconut cream in my coffee this morning. I already gave cheese the flick last week so I may as well get serious and see what happens when I eliminate dairy completely. I'm gonna give it a solid 4 weeks and see if I notice any other positive changes.
So, yesterday. I remembered that i had a kilo of pork belly in the fridge so I roasted that up and ate about half of it over the course of the day, dear sweet jesus, is there anything better than crispy cracklin' pig skin and fat! I made up a green smoothie and drank about half then had the most awful gurgling gas and the runs. That's just proved it, I cannot take large quantities of coconut milk, it just goes straight through me! I had a couple of vodka sodas in the evening too. No veggies or fruit though, except in the smoothie - will make up for that today.
Got out for an hour on the beach with the pooch, wore my new HR monitor and sat comfortably at about 70% of maximum the whole time, was barefoot too!
Plan for today:
Breakfast: Coffee with coconut cream
Lunch: What else?! Pork belly with a BAS
Dinner: bf is cooking ribeye steak with a big greek style salad... Oh that reminds me, will have to leave the feta out of mine.
Exercise: LHT workout and beach walk.
