Today's macros:
144g fat (should be 185); 101g protein (should be 100); 24g carbohydrates (should be 25). Doesn't seem like the fat number should be so low, but I can't think of anything I ate that I didn't add up here. Yay me, I guess...

Kind of back on track. I might need to count up during the day and not just before I post here.

lunch-O-clock

This should keep working for the rest of the day. Time to do some landscaping.

Ugh. Two days of a weird stomach bug. Don't want to eat much of anything. At least that's good for my BG numbers....

I'm down 4 lbs in 2 weeks, still looks promising.

I've been keeping to 3 meals per day, and keeping my fats up but my overall calories on target. so far so good.

i guess a general update is a good idea.

i've settled into skipping breakfast,

for lunch, a can of tuna, with added fats ussually olive oil andflavored with dijon.

I'm now drinking more coffee and less diet pop. the coffee has cream in it and i've cut back to 1-2 pks of sweetener per day rather

Supper is basically a generous helping of meat, salad, with pickles cheese olives dijon and olive oil

im not snacking after supper anymore.

overall, i think the move away from 1 meal per day was a good choice. and, i think the move to keep my fats up was a good decision too.

ultimately it is too soon to tell if im losing weight but 4lbs in 2wks looks promising.

i will say that the water retension/swelling in my legs has gone down quite nicely. almost as well as fasting.

last night, i tore into a mini-jar of honey and a frozen pizza. im not normally a cheater on a work night, i'll have to be watchful that i don't do it more often.

I paid the price today. remember my wonderful legs? well tonight they are swollen like hell.

what i ate was not satisfying, it filled no need, and it is going to screw me up for a day or two.

maybe i'll IF and go for a really good walk, i can tell thst i'm starting to feel adicted to feeling better.

I haven't fallen off the wagon yet. In fact, I'm still kind of waiting for "The Big Cheat" since I started LCHF about a year ago. I don't know; I think I've avoided big cheats because I dislike how I feel physically afterward. Better to not even start...

tbh I've only been doing fasting and before-bedtime pokes lately so I've gotten a bit lazy in that regard, but I haven't much changed what I eat (except for measuring and accounting) and the numbers have been excellent. So maybe that's my form of slacking....

Macros for today:
Fats: 143g (out of 185; this should be higher, I think)
Protein: 88g (out of 100)
Carbs:27g (out of 25; ruh-roh...)

Not bad after two days of being well below intake because I didn't feel well. Another day tomorrow...

What I like about LCHF is we tend to undershoot our fat target. I much prefer that to an all carbs in diet where I tend to overshoot my carb target.

'tend to overshoot my carb target' omg that is such an understatement LOL

The interesting thing, though, is that part of LCHF is the HF, meant to combat hunger/cravings. Yet here I am, considerably under my numbers, and not hangry or starving. Maybe it's just the tail effects of my stomach "whatever"; between that and the weather I have not been very active, either.
