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!
