Carb Cycling: Day 7 - Just the Facts

Monday, August 19, 2013

This is the end of the first week in my carb cycling adventure. Itís been a pretty good week.
The high point of my carb range is 198. On the low carb days I try to stay around or under 70.
This graph is my carbs for the past 30 days.

This graph is my carbs for the past week. There is certainly a big difference.

The things that I like about carb cycling are:

Iím eating healthy, non-processed food about 90% of the time.

Iíve found some new foods/recipes to try that I like and will continue to eat.

I like the prompting from the Vemma Bod-e app that reminds me when to eat (like I could forget) and give me meals and recipes at my fingertips. Also like the Tip of the Day video from Chris and his wife.

I like the results I am seeing. Iíve lost 2lbs and seem to have lost some of the jiggle in my stomach. Could be wishful thinking but time will tell. I want to take some photos tonight so Iíll have the proof!

The things that I donít like about carb cycling are:

On the low carb days, I get tired in the afternoon. I find that Iím drinking more tea to keep going.

Since I am eating 5-6 meals a day, there is a lot of prep and packing of food to take to work. Iím hoping that this gets easier as I find tune my menu.

    Congrats on losing the 2 lbs and some wiggle! Hope I do. Also for all the info. I have the books on Kindle and trying to find some time to read and get food ideas since I'll have to have a lot ready to take into work. You'll have to let me know what recipes you like!

Hope you have a good Wednesday!!!

    It sounds like carb cycling is working out pretty well for you! Another 2 lbs down is certainly something to be proud of! I'm glad you found some new healthy recipes you like. That is a really good thing to take away from this experience.
