So I’ve done 2 days of the diet I devised for myself – Defatting: The Principles (and why your body will always win in the end) – and this morning I weighed myself.
I’ve lost 7lbs.
Now I know there’s a fair amount of water weight etc in there, but all the same. I did a calorie-careful vegetable-based day (lost 3lbs), and followed it with a calorie-uncounted high protein-high fat day (lost 4lbs).
Yesterday was a big fat fest, and although I actually really can cook, what I felt like was an utterly self-indulgent day and after trying to adhere to the almost-vegetarian Alkaline Diet, that could only mean lots of bacon and eggs. I can’t be bothered working out my calorie count from yesterday, but this is what I ate:
– 3 eggs fried in 1 tbsp butter + 4 rashers grilled bacon
– 1 salmon fillet + 2 boiled eggs made into egg mayonnaise with 2 tbsps mayonnaise
– 250g chestnut mushrooms fried in 2 tbsps fat + 5 grilled rashers bacon
I only know that it’s way more calories than should result in a weight loss.
Hmmmm. This is something I’ve seen before – that the calories in/calories out equation isn’t the whole picture.
Of course, whatever, the weight loss will slow very soon but I’ll keep you updated.
Today is a starch-based day, although I freely admit it may go a little awry as I’m going in for an MRI Craniofacial Scan today and they may want to inject dye into me so *ugh* I’m a little nervous going in and know I will come out with a shocking headache, so I’ll do the best I can in terms of diet but make no concrete promises.
However the scan should shed light on what’s going on with my TMJ/TGN so that’s a good thing. Strangely, yesterday I finally got called for the ultrasound on my shoulder which will happen on Thursday 15th February. As is so often the way in life, it’s all happening at once.
