So I have been following the slow carb diet for a week and had one (ok one and a half) binge days. I feel off the wagon on Sunday night, was at a family diner party, and none of the food was allow and I ate way too much (and had a beer). So what are the results so far. Well I lost about 5 lbs, went from 183 to 178, but the only thing I have to measure body fat is a $50 scale I bought which is very un-accurate, I went from 31% to 29.5%. The most important thing though is a feel great. My energy level is up and my body feels like it did a few years ago.
The results are not bad, I did put back on 1lb after the weekend so I am motivated to work even harder this week and be more diligent. One thing I am going to try to improve on is portion control. I was eating far too much for each meal and will be dialing that back quite a bit this week, in a progressive manner. I am also going to dial up the work outs this week as well. I was only short workouts to try to get back into decent shape, but now that I can do 75 kettle bell swings at once I am going to add some push ups and deadlifts as well. I will be making a page with my current routine shortly.
On a side note, I got a comment from Keith who is affiliated with NightWave on my insomnia post. I emailed Keith to see how he found my blog, he replied that he tracks all NightWave activity closely, impressive as I had not even submitted my site to google yet and was not even index, nor did I post any links at all. Probably a Gary Vee fan, good job Keith.
