So I have decided that I wanted to try eating grapes, oranges, and grapefruits.
Well in 4 short days I have gained 5 pounds.
I am starting the leptin reset and was wandering does anyone have any suggestions on carbohydrates?
I don't want to go over 30grams and a can of spinach is only 15 should I just use 2 cans a day?
It's just water weight. That's common when you go from lower to higher carb intakes
Awe thanks So I can go from low carbohydrate to higher carbohydrate and gain water weight not real weight?
With that being said it would be alright to continue eating this way or should I go back to the low carbohydrate?
I am trying to lose body fat but not weight. I am currently standing at like 154 pounds and 19% body fat.
When I malnourished my body through nuts I stood at 149 pounds and 17% body fat..... that will never happen again.
So now that I have reached my goal weight the best thing for me to do at this point is eat starchy vegetables such as sweet potatoes and work out to lose body fat?
the first thing carbohydrates do is pack on water

In my experience, after a couple days of higher carb intake, my body adjusts and sheds the water that was initally retained. YMMV
Forgive me for this observation, but it seems that you want spoon feeding, Captain Archer. Is there a reason that you find it difficult to read the book and other threads that have delved extensively into carb cycling, etc?

Now so confused.. should I go to leptin reset or keep eating carbohydrates to fill my "stores"
