Clean Eating Erases Weight Gain?

Another day of relatively clean eating with a low (estimated) carbohydrate intake at about 66g–check out the normalization of my weight (see chart at the bottom of this post). At a high level, my weight shot up to 162 lb. after a high-carb, bad-carb weekend and, after four days of clean eating, I have normalized back to around 158 (according to my FitBit Aria Smart Scale). As I mentioned earlier this week this big swing probably includes a bunch of water weight gain/lose but there is also some body fat gain/lose there too. I can tell because of the way my clothes fit! :) The point is, kind of like the current stock market seems to be somewhat driven by oil prices, my weight seems to driven by high/bad carbohydrate consumption. I love the n=1 experiment!

I started today with my normal 5g dose of creatine as well as a healthy dose of caffeine via drinking my preferred, all-natural energy beverage, Celsius. I also stayed with my intermittent fasting routine eating my first meal at noon and my final meal just before 8pm. In general my food choices followed my version of Primal/Paleo which is reflected in the low estimated carbohydrate consumption.

Here’s to clean eating and getting results! As always…

Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
