Weight - 220.8 (-4.2 lbs) Nothing much to note except that even three starches a day (muesli for breakfast, garlic mashed potatoes at lunch, pita at dinner) is still leading to weight loss. I even had a bowl of ice cream. Incidently, have you ever measured out a true serving of ice cream? It's worse than a true serving of wine. 1/2 a cup of ice cream ain't much. I turn it into health food by dumping cocoa, not hershey's chocolate milk stuff, 100% cocoa powder in addition to walnuts and coconut (unsweetened as I'm obviously counting calories with my dessert). That rinky dink half a cup probably runs 300-400ish calories. And my exercise capacity is abyssmal. About 1 mile of jogging and I'm about to keel over. I'm going to have to up the healthy carbs just a bit more because the 2nd block exams are coming up and I've got to be able to use my brain. I don't have time to train my brain to work on ketones. My gluconeogenesis process must be off, which is to say, I could have less efficient burning of fats or catabolism of proteins. And now the weekend where I tend to not really fall off, so much as jump off the wagon. Last weekend was the Renaissance Festival. Two words - funnel cake. I think I ingested 8,000 calories that day. This week is OU vs UT. One word - beer. Maybe I'll touch that light beer crap. Yeah, right.
