The result of yesterday's feeding frenzy....260.2 down one pound.
and here we have what I would consider the main reason for not being able to stick to a plan. I am not rewarded with a loss when I am on plan, but still manage to lose when I go off plan. So is there a problem with the plan? Must be, but how to fix it is the question that comes up time and again.
It is my firm belief that our bodies will lead us to what we need. If we can learn to listen. If we can keep our brains from overriding. So the next question is what did my body decide it needed yesterday? And is my body trying to maintain the status quo (obesity) or is it working its way to a thinner more agile person and I am fighting it?
I am going to assume the latter. The body wants to survive, and the best chance of survival has got to be in a thinner more agile structure. So what was it looking for yesterday?
Possibilities...extra calories, more carbohydrates, salt, or simply quantity (to prime the pump so to speak).
I am at a loss, I am going to think I was just taking advantage of a situation of plenty and go back to the plan I have for the end of the month, lets see how it goes...
So, take 2.. my plan for the second half of June (since my plan for the first half worked so well;~))...
VLC (net), moderate protein, high fat...I have looked back over a year's worth of food tracking and I never actually tried this tweak, so giving it a try for the rest of the month.
No added sugars or flour....going to try to accomplish this one at least through the end of the month as well.
No restrictions, goals or limits on veggies... except as my net carbs require.
we will see where the carbs fall as I increase the healthy fats
Eat only when physically hungry (tummy growling)...this is still and hopefully always a big part of the plan
Eat mindfully...again, part of the whole point is to learn this.
