Okay, so it's a brand new day, and a new dawning. What the hell does that mean? I don't know. But I am trying something new, anyhow.
As you might recall from my last weigh-in, I was getting a little disheartened. I had been plateaued for a while, and I was sick of eating a diet's food without getting a diet's reward. So, what happened from there...
Well, I've decided to try a new way of eating. It's similar to what I've been eating before, but this one includes more carbs. It's something called carb-cycling. Basically, you eat high-carb one day, low-carb the next day. You don't cut anything in particular out of your diet (like I have been, eating low-carb exclusively), but you do have to eat things on separate days.
Supposedly, it should raise my metabolism, so that I don't get stuck on plateaus. So, how did it go?
Well, first of all, the back story is that gave up trying in the days after my last weigh-in report. I ate whatever I wanted for several days running. I had Carl's Jr. (notoriously high in calories), Pizza, and candy galore. To the point that I weighed just shy of 270 again when Monday morning came around. Monday is when I started into my carb-cycling. By this morning, however, I weighed:
Now, this might seem like it should be a let down, because I weighed 262.6 at last week's weigh-in. But, I actually found it to be a rollicking success, because I weighed 270 just five days earlier. I think this carb-cycling might be exactly what I've been looking for. It is, however, a little more complicated, and might take me some time to really get used to it.
I need to give it a few more weeks to see what kind of results I might get. Unfortunately for this upcoming week, it follows Easter weekend, and I didn't stick to my diet at all over Easter weekend. So, I'm sure to have ruined everything and have to start again...again. Soon enough, though, I'll get 100% on track, and then we'll see some results.
So, Tena, Marshal, Jeremy, how are you guys doing? Tobias, I haven't heard from you in a while, I'm guessing you're doing your own things these days, right?
