Continued weight loss and continued nutritional ketosis range. Can’t ask for more.
Energy level is still great despite having less than 7 hours of sleep. I found that I woke up naturally today before the alarm.
It’s funny, while being on this diet I don’t have any cravings for the binge-fest cheat days I so looked forward to while I was trying to follow Tim Ferriss Slow Carb methodology.
I suspect it’s overall better for your health to not have to rely on binge days. For me at least they did serve an important function. They worked fantastically at being a pressure release for me to fulfill my carb cravings. A sort of damage control… A controlled destruction to allow for further progress! Without those pressure releases, I’m pretty confident that I wouldn’t have been able to stick to the diet and reap the benefits.
It wasn’t until I hit a plateau at around 182-185 lbs that I started exploring other options and getting interested in Paleo and subsequently a ketotic diet… and now I’m seeing even more progress!
