After one month on this lifestyle I can honestly say it has done wonders. My energy levels are at an all time high, bloat is down, and I really don’t miss carbs that much. I have been keeping my net carb intake at less than 40g day, sugar intake less than 25g, and fat intake at about 120g. It took me about 2 weeks to figure out what intake was best for me, and from what I read it varies for everyone.
My starting weight on March 1st (after gaining a teeny bit back after vacation) was 186.6. Today:
What an excitement to be under 180 for the first time since I got married in January of last year! With working out 5 days a week I have seen my body start changing as the scale does.
