Draglist's Journal, 04 Oct 15

Woke at 214.0, down 1.4 from this time yesterday. That’s after eating 2700 calories. Holy cow, is this adding calories thing going to work? Finished a 16:8 fast and ate a huge omelet. Had three cups of coffee and a hot green tea, then went out for a 5-mile HIIT walk. I intended to take it easy after a fast pace yesterday, so I mostly jogged during my HIIT bursts. But I’ll be darned if I didn’t exceed my max heart rate on them! Was it the coffee? A little less sleep last night? Averaged 4.3 mph and an amazing 141 bpm with a max of 177 bpm! I sometimes don’t even hit 141 bpm on my HIIT bursts on the incline treadmill! Came back and weighed 210.0, down 1.6 from post-workout yesterday. Looks like I’ll get at least 2600 calories today. I’m eating 400-800 more calories than I normally do, tailored to a 750 calorie deficit each day based on how much Fitbit says I burn. Attempting to see if I was not losing body fat due to stress-induced cortisol production from extreme calorie deficits (and lack of sleep).

Thanks, Lynn! I am so stuffed! But I'm determined to eat all these calories my lower deficit calls for. I am going to continue working out, so I'm going to be eating way more than I am used to. Just ensuring that it's quality food.

Your down to 210, you are doing something right!!!- it will interesting to figure out - you may be burning more calories then you think!!!

Thanks, Pam! I know I'm burning an average of 3300 per day according to my Fitbit and on some days (like yesterday and today), I'm burning upwards of 3500-3600. So on these days, I get to eat about 2800 calories, which for me is massive unless I'm doing some vacation eating. Just ate 2837 today alone!

Eating 2700-2800 calories and losing weight. Very nice, I'd like to have a dilemma such as that to deal with. :)

Now your body is being soothed and not starved ... and not holding on to fluids. Just eat nutrient dense foods and see how it goes. :o)

It's all an experiment Bill. Good luck.

Thanks, Jim, Mom, and Isabel! A nice problem to have at that! I had more success today, as after my pig out yesterday (where I had to eat a dark chocolate after 10 pm to use up the last bit of calories), I weighed 209.0 after my workout! Really crazy, but fun! Looks like you are right, Mom!
