It works. Last week, I continued to eat well and watch my total calories each day. On Saturday, I weighed-in again: once before and once after a few hours of morning Ultimate Frisbee in a fasted state. The average of the two readings: 203.75 / 25.65% / 52.25#
The previous Saturday, I had weighed-in and come in around 210# (I don’t remember exactly and can’t find the paper where I wrote it down). I other words, I was up a little from my weigh-in on April 14. This isn’t too surprising given the insane drop the week before.
|Δ from start||-24.75||-4.05||-15.65|
|Δ from Last||-3.95||-0.45||-1.95|
|Week 18-2: 120428||203.75||25.65||52.25|
|Week 16-2: 120414||207.7||26.1||54.2|
|Week 15-2: 120410||223.8||29.5||65.4|
That makes 20 pounds overall, 4% bodyfat, and 13 pounds of bodyfat in 18 days. I am now approaching my weight from last October when I stopped weighing myself for a few months. To celebrate this continued weight loss from eating right, I, of course, immediately took a Free Meal that evening.*
How Am I Doing It? That’s an easy question to answer: fasting every weekday from 8PM until 5 PM the next day, strict low-carb eating, and tracking my food intake in minute detail every day.
Food Last Week. Here’s a summary of everything I ate last week. Saturday and Sunday were high and made a big difference in the overall average.
On weekdays I fast. On weekends, I usually don’t. This skews things pretty heavily and just goes to show that fasting makes a HUGE difference for me.
Tuesday and Wednesday were definitely low. I can’t explain why I eat less on some days. I just don’t get as hungry.
Looking at the food logs for those days, nothing stands out as particularly filling and likely to make me eat so much less. And I ate different entrees each day so there’s no main-dish correlation. Just an odd personal variation, I guess.
