at the moment, my body confuses me. I decided to write here whats happening, so maybe someone has an idea... Last week, I discovered the book "The Eat Clean Diet" by Tosca Reno, and it all sounded very good. So for the last 4 days, I ate according to her advice, which means completely unprocessed, homecooked food, more small meals etc. I logged everything here in the nutrition tracker to make sure my calories were ok, and ate everyday on the higher end of my range, about 1550 kcal a day. Additionally, I was very dedicated to my P90X again and did 1- 1,5 h of sports a day for the last three days. The result of my being such a brave girl? 1,3 kg gained!!
While the scale hates me obviously, I notice my body getting a little bit leaner, my stomach a little flatter (if this is the wrong expressions, excuse my English, couldnt find a better one) and my muscles a bit harder.
So, I'm telling myself that maybe my body is noticing now that there is REALLY something changing and tries to stay on that set point. I'm exactly at the weight I've been carrying around for 4 years now, and maybe my body just refuses to change and needs some time to adjust. I will not give up and just keep going like this, because there is physically just no way I eat and exercise like this and don't lose on the long term. I eat enough but not too much, just good fats, no crap, and exercise hard with a good mixture of cardio and strength training.
Has anyone had the same experience? I would be happy to read about it!
