As you know, I’ve been doing low carb since August of last year. I normally don’t talk about my updates because for me I felt like it’s been really slow. I’m someone who has PCOS (which may contribute why its slow going).
A while back, I said I was going to try carnivore 3 days maybe 4 days a week. As of today, I still don’t see any difference on the scale. I get so hungry after I have a day of carbs, and that could be why I overeat the first 2 days of the week when I am attempting carnivore. I’m definitely guilty not drinking enough water as well. It is true, that we need to drink HALF our weight daily.
However, the inches have been coming off. I haven’t had any real luck with the numbers on the scale ( I use THIS ONE by the way), you can see that I am getting smaller. I walk my dog daily. I konw I was supposed to do more forms of exercise, but I haven’t had found the time to actually do the ones I want to do. It’s been beautiful outside day in and day out, so taking hour long walks with my dog I felt was enough. Maybe it is, because I seem to be more muscular.
Having cheat days (where you have whatever you want) is not worth it in my opinion. You just lose the same water weight all week, then if you have another cheat day a week after, that same water weight. It’s been hard for me because I’m surrounded by family who refuses to give up their carbs. I never want to offend them by bringing my own stuff but I also don’t want to offend them.
What worked for me last year is being under 30 carbs a day. I have been extremely lax when cooking food for my fiance, but I need to get back to being strict. Some people who does keto can cheat and go back to losing actual pounds. Not me. Someone like me, especially with PCOS, have to stay strict. I believe it’s the same for most PCOS women.
On the plus side, this year my period has been getting regular on its own. I went off the pill in July 2019. So, as a health benefit, this is been worth it as I do want children in the future.
For now, I am probably going back to meat and veggies, and back to tracking. When I was tracking, I was losing. I will provide another update on my birthday to let you guys know the progress. Subscribe if you don’t want to miss the next update!
