Wow ... that was a fast 5 pounds gained

Well maybe not real fast but the past 3-4 weeks I have been traveling heavily overseas (Singapore, Amsterdam, Tokyo ... that sort of thing). And I finally got a chance to weigh myself on my own scale. Sure enough, up 5 pounds in just a few weeks.

I suspected something was up as my normal problem of severe leg cramps most nights went away.I suspect somewhere along the way I dropped too far out of ketosis. Meat centric eating is just not easy overseas where most meals are based on rice, potatoes and other starches.

Time to dust myself off and spend the next couple of weeks back into VLC land to get this back under control. Fortunately I will be in town for a couple of weeks before I make another swing overseas.

Let's see ... where is my emergency stash of bacon!

The important thing is that you are on top of the situation! You're still within your 5 lb range and are back with a plan The good thing is, it's probably mostly water weight. I'm doing the same... weight creeped up because I was allowing myself to have some SF chocolate or a slice of gluten free bread here and there.... all of a sudden it was happening daily... the scale reflected it. I've went back to whole foods and smaller portions and I'm at 99.4 today.
