  • Abs - how do you get in 10 miles of walking a day? I wish I could do that... even when I get to walk to the hospital that is only 4 roundtrip... and that seems like a lot

    Lucky you!

    • Well, when it doesn't involve Stupid Shit, it's usually
      around 20 grams of carbs.

      Or, if I have a run in with some sugar snap peas, it could go
      up, but I don't really care because, well, no one ever got
      fat on sugar snap pea carbs. HAR!

      But yeah, usually 20g or less.. sometimes only 5g.

        Well, I walk back and forth to school with my kids twice a day (drop off and pick up),
        and then I take an hour walk every day as well.

        THEN if I get a call from my part time dog walking job, that could be another 1.5hr
        walk, and depending on how FREAKING CRAZY he is, determines how FAST I'll be
        walking, and it adds up fast.

        I'm taking him out today for 1.5 hours and that could be 6 miles just right there if
        he's focused and doesn't do a lot of stupid sniffing.

        I also take a few "neighborhood walks" with my kids, maybe three a day, and our loop
        is one mile.

        So there you go!

        p.s. i'm a stay at home mom, so i have lots of time
        to do whatever i want, WHENever I want. if i worked,
        it would be a whole nuther story....

        p.s.s. also, walking makes me REALLY happy, like, stupidly
        happy. I don't know why, but if I'm having a shit ass day, or
        I'm super cranky, I'll go do a neighborhood walk and come back
        another person. Swear it. Even my husband says to me, when
        i'm being a bitch "wow, um, you should go take a walk!". So I
        do. Yanno, after punching him in the crotch...

          Same here..I aim for no more then 20 a day and usually am about 5-10. I am usually taking in about 12-1300 calories a day.

          • My cals have averaged out to be about 1600 a day and that is
            super perplexing, cuz when I was doing higher carb, I couldn't go
            over 1200 without just maintaining my weight.

            Whack.

            BUT, that said, I'm going to strive to go to 1300 this next 30 days and
            see what happens.

              Good luck! You seem to be doing very well!

                I'm at around 25%bf. I haven't been able to drop it in yeeeeaaaars. My body seems to really like where it is, although I could easily drop 5 lbs and still have plenty of essential stores. I lost the 3.3 lbs I gained over the holidays pretty much overnight when I first started SLD, but now nothing.

                Yes I'm pms'ing and want to whine. Sue me.

                I am also really dense - what's AS?

                  • 5-10 grams of carbs a day...? What are you guys eating? Nothing but meat and fat?

                    I'd be curious to see a 1200 calorie day menu. I eat that by lunch time.

                    • I'm curious to see the 20g a day menu! I don't know how you guys do it...

                      • I'll type one out when I get back from my dog walking expedition!

                        • Oh and thanks for the clarification, Julie. I'm a bottomless pit so while I do experience AS (ha!) I still have to be very careful otherwise I can easily still.consume 2000+ calories a day.

                          • I know, I know, you and me both.

                            I can be perfectly sated on whatever I've had,
                            and then I'll think of something delicious, like peanuts,
                            want them super bad... sometimes give in, and bam,
                            2k cals down the hatch.

                            Sigh.

                              Ok, here's an example...I IF from supper time until lunch the next day, here is one of my days: Lunch: burger patty with sauteed onions and mushrooms Supper: 2 pieces of cod fried in coconut oil with coconut milk,mayo and curry sauce served with 2-3 cups of pak choi or spinach . I also have a tbsp. of MCT in the morning and in the afternoon.

                              • And you really aren't hungry...? I IF on weekends a lot until 1 or 2 just because I'm too lazy to workout early... but I'll eat a 800 calorie "breakfast" and then a 1000 calorie dinner on top of the oil. I don't know... maybe I'm too conditioned for this amount of food and I could eat less? Can you eat this way forever or is this a big drop for you? Clearly we are all different but I read about all the women (mostly) eating 1200 calories a day and I just can't imagine it. I'd gnaw off my arm. And then eat chocolate.
