Awesome job Chris!
thanks! I think that there is just no way that we can make a food, no matter how pure, that is as good as what nature gave us. I am sure there are many things in the eggs that make them more satisfying than the whey, and at the very least I am pretty sure they metabolize slower than whey.
I will send the whey back with my parents, my dad actually needs the whey to get more protein in as he cannot stomach much food quantity and he is still healing.
SW 2/26/13 =274.8
CW=269.2 up 1.2
Sleep= 7:19 w/ 94% efficiency
Urine Ketones= didn't bother-I have to do pretty much straight carbs today so Wednesday will be a start over.
Blood Ketones= no data yet
Calories = 1779
Net Carbs = 19g/4%
Steps = 8228 this is very good, since I actually had to charge the fit bit yesterday, so there was at least an hour when I was puttering around the house but not wearing it.
So, why the gain. Everything I ate was on plan (except I didn't plan). And my fat was higher and my carbs and protein were lower than the day before. I think it may have been one of (or a combination of) 2 things. The cheese I ate was very salty, and essentially it was dinner, and I was about 30oz shy of my normal fluid intake. And I had a measured portion of nuts, on top of the nuts that are in the base of the coconut bars. Maybe I just can't eat nuts.
The gain is interesting. It could be yesterday, for the reasons you note, or it could have been another day in the week... I know that nuts are NOT my friend. In fact, the cashews were I think the cause of my most recent gain (WAY too many of them....).
Hope all goes well today. Thinking of you.
I even have to watch sunflower seeds so, it would not surprise me if nuts were an issue for you.
the few days before I started to weigh again were nut fests, and that showed a 5 pound gain from when I started. See now I am sorry I wasn't weighing all along, as it is data lost. I wonder if I had lost weight and then the days of the nuts caused me to gain 5 pounds plus what ever I had lost.
No nuts for me. I will put the coconut bars in the freezer for DD when she comes home.
Today is just my regular annual doc visit. Oh and the prep I am a little worried about the excess carbs, and just feeling like crap from them. I wonder what people who have diabetes do, maybe there is a diet version of gatorade? At least it is only once every 2 years now.
Tomorrow is the actual colonoscopy. Good thing about those is that you generally get instant results. My doc will even sometimes hand me photos of my intestines.
Yeah, nuts. I can do a few (and I mean a few) macadamia nuts, but the others are bad news. Also, it's amazing how calorie dense they are. 10 little mac nuts are almost 200 calories...and, they don't really fill me up! 2 Tbs butter on the other hand, that does fill me up.
Gatorade all day does not sound like fun. [And, I imagine the prep is no fun, either...]
there is a diet gatorade believe it or not.
really, rats, wonder if it is lower carb though, or if the carbs come from the electrolytes? too late now, I have already made my mix-gatorade/miralax- given that I suspect sugar is the least of my worries. Nope, today will not be a fun day. To add insult to injury-DH is flying over to have lunch with DD today! At least DS and I don't have to go to rifle today.
Yes, and I can tell you I had way more than 10 mac nuts before I started to weigh in again! Yesterday, I actually measured the pistachios. I don't allow macs in the house anymore, because I can seriously eat a pound in one evening.
