LCHF, maintenance, and other things.
Tuesday, April 08, 2014
I finally reset my profile to my “maintenance” range, rather than weight loss. This may seem silly, but to me it is a milestone. I have been putting off doing it because I always want to lose more, get smaller, etc. I never reset it “just in case.” I realized today that I'm being rather silly about the whole thing. I currently have decent eating and exercise habits, and I feel I'm pretty healthy. I'm okay; I eat tasty things, and I work out as many times a week as I can. At this point, I want to work on putting on muscle, and that requires me to stop thinking in terms of deficit.
I'm always experimenting with myself diet wise. I've tried doing a lot of different things nutritionally, and some I've pulled off and others not so much. I try to adopt habits and stick with them as well as I can for as long as I can. I tried eating clean, I tried eating paleo, etc, etc. Now it is time for a new experiment, LCHF. (Low Carb/High Fat). I am eating a ketogenic diet, which is essentially when you eat so few carbohydrates that the body switches to burning fat for fuel rather than carbs. I've been in a state of ketosis for about a week now, and I must say, I'm learning a lot about my body in the process. Also, I've been cooking a lot! Some of it is pretty tasty, some of it I won't make again, but I am trying.
As far as workouts go, I've been doing Supreme 90 day after I finished up my second round of Chalean Extreme. Expect a review of the program soon, I still have not done two of the disks, and I want to do them all before I speak to the program as a whole.
Enough rambling, that is what is going on.
