Day 31 progress report

Post  120-4life on Tue Feb 12, 2013 2:49 am

Okay. It's been a month since I started this diet. I've shed 15 lbs and holding at 140. Although I ultimately want to get down to 120, it looks like I'm not going to keep losing a lb a day and I can accept that for now. I'm very happy to be 15 lbs lighter!

I'm going to focus on eating wheat-free now. I know I gain weight so easily eating anything containing wheat and now that I know just how unhealthy the wheat of today is, I want to let go of that. I've tried quitting wheat several times over the past 15 years and just couldn't let it go, it's that addicting. I would go through the grocery store aisles and be on the verge of tears at the thought of giving up all those wheat-containing foods. Really! Like I was a wheat junkie. ha, ha. But I believe I can do it now armed with the latest information at the Wheat Belly website, and with how much better I feel right now. It will be a major adjustment of my eating habits, I realize that, but as long as I'm not gaining back weight I figure I'm doing good for now.

I will still work on limiting bites to under 30 per day and see how that works to keep burning fat. So far over the past few days eating on this plan, and even 4 times a day, the ketone testing still registers moderate fat burning.

Today's food: breakfast at 9:30: 5 bites avocado, 6 bites orange, 1 tsp coconut oil.

Lunch at 3:45 : 3 bites banana, 2 bites almond butter, 2 bites cashews, tea.

dinner at 8:30: 3 bites banana, 3 bites almond butter, 1 tsp coconut oil. glass of cold water.

total today: 26 bites (counting the coconut oil)

Oops! I forgot to take my supplements today. Got to remember that!

p.s.: I'm eating unrefined, organic coconut oil to keep my brain healthy and avoid developing Alzheimer's. I've learned that it's a super brain nutrient and aid to prevention and/or improvement of some forms of Alzheimer's disease and simple memory loss. Lots of other health benefits, too. Look it up!

It was fun losing a lb a day!

Just proves this works! At least the first 15 days. Very motivating to stay with it even if I have to modify the bites to fit what I can continue doing with limiting bites. I definitely notice a change in my relationship with food and the appestat working to signal "enough," so that's a huge benefit already. Hope this helps you all to focus on long-term possibilities with this way of eating! I love it!

Day 32 still at 140

Post  120-4life on Thu Feb 14, 2013 12:41 am

Breakfast at 9:30: 4 bites orange, 4 bites scr. egg with grated cheese, 4 bites cashews, 2 bites snickers bar. coffee.
lunch at 2:00: 5 bites ground beef, 5 bites sweet potato, 5bites leeks, 4 grape tomatoes, hot tea. and supplements.
Ooops. That's already over 30 bites today. I wasn't adding it up as I went. I need to be really strict about counting bites. I think that is key to success with this at least until we're used to knowing when it's enough and just stopping there.
Another plus with this is that counting bites makes me eat more consciously and more slowly which also helps me notice the appestat registering "enough." Eating fast has been a lifelong habit that will be nice to change, too. I did leave food on the plates today, too!

Just had to have something to eat at 6 pm: 3/4 cup almond milk and about 1/4 cup cashews (3 bites). I don't know what to count the almond milk. So today's total solid food: 34 bites.

Looks like these are the amounts I'll need to stay at to maintain at 140. Way less food than I've been used to eating every day. An eye-opener for sure.

Day 34 - still at 140 and loving it

Counting bites is the key. And remembering to count bites and adding them up at each meal! You'd think I'd know this by now. ha, ha. Rolling Eyes It's so easy to just sit down and eat something without forethought. Then the old pattern sets in and before I know it I've eaten 50 bites at the end of the day. I really want to stay under 30 bites for a while until I'm ready to try the 5 x 2 bites/day again.
Not sure when that will be so I can drop another lb a day. I've still got another 15 or 20 lbs to go.

Has anyone gone 30 days straight on the 10 bites a day and continued losing a lb a day?
