Low carb diet – week 3
Recently I wrote how I was trying the low carb diet, so I thought post an update.
Here’s what I have learnt:
- Use good scales! My old one was giving inconsistent results. If you weigh yourself several times and get a different result, its time to buy some new ones!
- Reading the the 30 day low carb diet, one of the arguments against low carb is that you are loosing water (not fat), also last week I was getting some really odd results. (I was consistently loosing about 200g per day, but there was a period where I gained half a kg). So I started tracking my BMI. I know BMI isn’t the best way to measure, but neither is just weight! Also BMI allows me to get a much better idea of what is going on.
- If you are interested in the details, I have been tracking my results every day or so here.
Again, to say this is beyond my expectations is an understatement. I still have the side effects (dry mouth and drinking a LOT of water) but if that’s the worst I have to put up with, then I am happy!
