Draglist's Journal, 01 May 16

New month and new plan. With Dr. Jason Fung’s teachings sinking in, I’m going to continue to try to minimize the net carbs (targeting 50 per day) but I’m going to flip the fat and protein macros. I’ll be trying to eat 150 grams of fat a day and 130 grams of protein. That will take some adjustment and pre-planning. These macros will equal 2070 calories per day, up from my 1700 per day in March. But I’ll be adding in 5:2 Intermittent Fasting (Fridays and Mondays). At 600 calories for each of those days, my average calories per day over the week will be 1650. Depending on what happens, I may add additional calories in future months. I will be doing everything I can to limit insulin spikes. Woke at 207.6. Did 96 minutes of walking at 3 mph to hit 10K steps and six miles. Weighed 204.8 after. Happy May Day everyone!

Great job getting your steps in already today. I'm not at a 3mph pace yet but hope to be there someday soon. :)

And what Tanita scale model do you have/recommend? It gives you such great detail. Thanks and have a great day, Draglist.

Thank you, Pam! If all goes as planned this month, we'll go a little lower! Good luck in the gym! Hi, Firebelly! It takes a while to work up to it. I can remember when this speed was very difficult for me. You will get there! I recommend the Tanita BC-533, but others may have the same features now.

OK, so got all the calories in and came pretty darn close to my macro goals. It's clear that cheese and nuts will be my friends on this plan (and that is A-OK with me!)

Thanks, Glen! Loving it tonight after 2100 calories. Ask me again tomorrow after 600! :)

I enjoyed the 5:2 eating style. I tried it for a few weeks last year and was really pleased with the results. Best wishes today with the 600 and hang tough! :)
