Time to re-lose some weight
Having lost over 50 lbs with LC and CKD, I fell off the wagon and stayed off for a couple of years, regaining 40 lbs in the process.
I tried to lose weight earlier this year by counting calories and eating clean, but hunger and cravings got the better of me. Then I remembered how much less effort was required, back when I was eating low carb, and how my appetite and cravings were naturally blunted.
So I went back to a low carb WOE as of this monday and I'm determined to stick with it. My diet is fairly basic: <30g of net carbs, <100g of protein and lots of fat.
It's been years since I ate like this last, and I'd forgotten how great this WOE is.
I'm down from 85 kg to 82 kg. Obviously it's mostly water weight, but it's still encouraging.
I've been consuming 1600 kcals daily on average. I haven't restricted calories, but just eaten when I was hungry and tracked my consumption. Some days I would go over 2000 kcals, one day I barely broke 1000. But at no point was I hungry.
Energy has been so-so. My body seems to still be adjusting to the diet. It will be interesting to see how I'll do tomorrow, when I go to judo practice. I was out with a leg injury last week, so this will be my first time after going low carb.
