The Protein Fast Continues!
With wonderful success.
By that, I mean I didn't eat anything like
my stethoscope or car keys or carmex...
Day 2 and some change.
If you don't eat carbs, and you cut back on fat,
The only thing left is protein! Choices, choices.
In a way, it's like new territory.
More severe than induction -
I even have a runny doze. (nose)
Not hungry, though.
So that's good.
I never said I was on Atkins.....
or anything else with an actual name.
I once blogged "It's not Atkins per se!"
Atkins is not Low-Carb as much as it is High-Fat.
Atkins is a Ketogenic Diet. Especially in Induction.
And how I do love my Ketones! It mimics being in Love.
I heard that somewhere. Anyways.
I was stricken (is that a word?) by a big glob of grease just the other day.
It was like 60 grams of pure fat that came out of this hamburger I made.
My George Forman Grill got hurt, so I went back to a skillet.
And there was all this freaking grease!
My mind said - "What the hell?
JC - I am never gonna have babies with you!"
Kidd Kraddick style! From back when he did the Kinsey skits. Love that guy.
So the question that remains is this:
At a certain point, does ketosis continue to come from dietary intake?
Or does it continue to come from the breakdown of stored fat?
THAT, my pretty, is the question.
Or, for the last 10 pounds, does exercise play a more important role?
But yes, Low Fat WITH Low Carb is hard. A Protein Fast.
This diet is hard, and it's only meant to be followed for a short time.
I should clarify this - it's a liquid protein diet...
3 shakes a day, nothing else.....
except for a bite or two of this or that, now and again...
2 grams of carbs x 3 = 6 total
2 grams of fat x 3 = 6 total
25 grams of protein x 3 = 75 total
Try it, and come back and tell me how you liked it.
Actually, you probably shouldn't try it - it's vexed!
Back so soon? Good!
And the verdict?
That it is hard, and not very easy.
But will it be worth it - that is the question!
Who can't upload a picture right now, to save my life!
