Good man.

I had extra carbs this weekend and gained 4-5 lbs as of last night.
Already excreted/perspired out 2 lbs though.

The effect of adding carbs is profound when you're controlling them.

Well, I feel off the wagon lately. Most of my meals were good, but had ice cream and oreos Monday night and about half a large pizza Tuesday night for dinner and today I ate half a bag of chips at lunch. And not one of those little bags either. Pants tight again, not getting on scale as I don't want the bad news.

However; normally this is where I'd give in and say eff it, but I am not going down that road. This is the year of accountability. I'm getting back on the wagon and starting again.

I know it's mostly water gain. I know I can get back to being disciplined. And I need to get back to logging every day as that kept me on track. No excuses.

So, a little stumble, just got to get back up and move forward.

Today
1/2 c oatmeal
banana
1/2 c blueberries
handful of pecans
Shake

Lunch
ham and turkey sandwich
a lot of potato chips
milk

Snack
apple
PB

dinner will be
1/2 lb ground beef with cheese
1 c of veg
milk

Heck, you probably needed a cheat day...it's okay.

Good attitude though...as you change your habits, bad habits will be less and less easy to justify.

Water is likely...I've read that you may only keep about 25% of the weight gained on a binge. You'll probably do better since you're training hard.

I agree that's why I'm not going to make it any worse and go right back into good eating instead of getting down on myself.

Yesterday:
breakfast
3 eggs
2 oz ham
milk

lunch
PB
apple

Post w/o
oatmeal
blueberries
banana
pecans
shake

dinner
a pile of fried shrimp
broccoli
salad w edamame
milk

cottage cheese


Today so far:
breakfast
3 eggs
3 oz ham
milk

lunch
6-7 oz turkey
1.5 c salad
milk

Snack
bowl of strawberries and blueberries
with 6 oz greek yogurt
big spoonful of peanut butter

Dinner
chicken breast
cup of broccoli and carrots
a little bit of couscous with vegatables in it

There that finishes off today

I'm going to go pretty low carb for the next few days to spark some weight loss, then ease the carbs back in next week. I'm thinking almost all of them post w/o though. I love my oatmeal and fruit, but it suddenly hit me I don't have to have that in the morning, I can eat that for lunch or even dinner if I want. On off days, I'll keep only the fruit and milk, etc. carbs, no bread or oatmeal or any grain carbs like that.

My thinking is more that I get so freaking hungry after working out that I'll eat some extra carbs that night even though I might have used up my carb limit with breakfast. Carbs just make me feel better overall as long as I stay around 150 or less, but over that and I get the bloat and feel like crap.

Anyway, let's give that a go and see what happens. The biggest problem I have is managing cravings in the evening, so maybe that'll help take some of that away.

We'll see.

Like the positive attitude Mike. I'm very much the same way - when I fall off the wagon diet wise, I fall way off!! But no use getting down on ourselves. Reset and move on.

Question for you - how is your water intake? I was drinking around 1-1.5 litres per day and just a couple of days ago up'd it to around 4. Made a big difference for me. I needed less food to feel full when I drank water with meals and between meals.

Give it a go, Mike. Sounds like a strategy that will work for you.

Ever read the Warrior Diet?

I do make a point of drinking a lot of water. I average 6-7 17 oz bottles a day. I only drink milk, coffee, and water, sometimes an adult beverage. I need to keep that last one in check obviously. I think I'm good on water.

No, what is the warrior diet? I won't buy it, but if there's a pertinent point in it you think might help me, fire away!

I'm drinking the same stuff 90% of the time.

Well, the WD is light eating (fruit/nuts), or none, most of the day and then one massive evening meal. Once you get used to it, you really look forward to your meal and your body gets conditioned to burn fat for energy.

BtB tried it and I think still does his own version of it now.

I can send you the e-book if interested... not necessarily promoting it, just offering food for thought....
