It doesn't make sense to me...

Saturday, February 20, 2010

It doesn't make sense to me what happened this weekend. I had a 4 day weekend to drink and go to a concert. Had some friends from interstate fly in, so was a bit of a bender. Spent the whole weekend drinking bacardi and diet coke and eating fast food like Mcdonalds, Pizza and KFC. Now I would think after a weekend of that where I am going over my daily calorie intake I would gain weight.... but no, I actually lost a kg!! Not sure how that works. Has got me thinking though, when I was younger and going to Uni, I was on a diet of crap, eating 4 sausage rolls, a family size pizza, a whole roasted chicken, soft drink, ice cream and chocolate.... and that was just until lunch! I lost 10kg eating like that and thats what kick started my fitness regime to become a abseiling instructor.

Is there another key to weight loss that isn't being spoken about? Have I stumbled upon something strange or am I just weird that way??

    No I won't be carving anything in stone without more research. Makes sense what your saying though, kind of a kick start to the system. I really don't want to go back to a junk food diet, it can't be healthy, even if I was losing weight then. Might try your friends idea though and have a kick-start burger every time I plateau. :)

    I had a friend who used to do Weight Watchers. Everytime she hit a plateau she would go to McDonalds and have a burger and a milkshake and then jump back on the wagon. It always jumpstarted her weight loss again. You might actually be on to something, though I wouldn't carve it in stone. I think that when you diet, you tend to eat pretty much the same way all the time. Your body adjusts to that and you stop losing weight. Fill it with something entirely different and you kind of shake things up a bit. However, I can't explain why you would lose weight if you consistently lived on a junk food diet.
