Question About Fat Eating Body Chemistry
Hi all. I finished my 14 day Induction yesterday. However, I ate differently yesterday when I ate low fat, high protein.
My question is did I screw up my body chemistry since the bod requirements change when it's moving to high fat diet?
Why did I do that? I've been losing slowly, not surprising since I'm 71 yrs young, and have been stalling.
I intend to do Induction until I reach my GOAL. However, wondering how much I screwed up my system if any. ??? Did I do any damage? I did not eat carbs though, mainly cottage cheese, cheese, and some Fage yogurt. Fish for dinner with some cream cheese, then Tbsp PB for a snack. I did lose a pound.
Thanks for any input.
Keep your eye on YOUR goal and you'll way more easily navigate around the discouraging obstacles.
KEEP MOVING FORWARD

Cottage cheese and yogurt are relatively high-carb.
However, I wouldn't worry too much. One day of lowering your fat (as opposed to increasing your carbs) isn't going to mess up your balance.
My fat varies quite a bit -- from days where it's 90% of my calories to days when I have relatively little. I may see a change in my loss, the next day, but it doesn't have long-term effects the way re-introducing carbs does.
Re-start on 06 Dec 2014, from 224.6 lbs (after some seriously self-destructive, off-plan behavior)

Lots of people report stalling or slow progress related to too much dairy or nuts. I don't think you would have screwed anything up by one day of lower fat.
Good luck on your journey!
Officially down 50 lbs! Another 30 or so to my first goal, then I'll re-evaluate.
Couldn't do it without all the amazing support and motivation from this forum and all the wonderful people here.
