So today is the end of the 3rd week since I started my LCHF lifestyle and what I love about it is that everything feels so natural ... even though I'm not having sugar and limiting my carbs between 20g - 30g a day, I still feel great.
Today I have a single piece of candy (just to experiment not because I craved it); in the past I'd go through the entire packet but I stopped at one piece and didn't feel like having more. I think my taste buds got more shocked than pleased with the sugar...
It's so great to be eating to satiety without overeating or feeling deprived - and as much as I haven't seen any changes in the cm (centimeters) loss, I still feel awesome about this change and I always remind myself that this is easy, and all I have to do is to stick to it... To be honest, I don't feel as though I'm on 'a diet' or that I've made 'drastic changes'... I feel ok about everything.
One thing I miss though is fruit salad - sure, I have a few berries in my full fat yogurt with some nuts but it's not the same. As much as I miss fruit, I also understand and accept the reason why I can't have it in huge amounts at this time... and besides, I will have more fruit once my goals are reached (within reason obviously)... I understand that right now fruit isn't that great for me because I need to lose a lot of weight.
Tomorrow is my check in / weigh in (kg's, cm's, body muscle, fat and water percentages) and I lost a lot of weight (probably water) in my first week and slowed down a lot in my 2nd week.... let's see what this week shows. I was very strict this week and have kept my carb intake at my goal of 20g but still didn't manage to get some fitness minutes in....
Wk 1 - lost 2.9kg
Wk 2 - lost 0.7kg
Wk 3 (will update this after check in)
