Slow Carb Diet – Day whatever

I mostly fell off the Slow Carb wagon. I still try to eat pretty much as the diet describes when it’s convenient, which usually amounts to 1 meal per day. Still staying away from most white foods, but a double meat hamburger without fries when I don’t really have time for anything but drive thru isn’t so bad, right? I’m still taking the supplements too. I kinda figure they are a pretty important part of the diet.

Really, I don’t even want to lose weight, just fat. I guess that’s what the diet is for. I don’t know. I may get back to it.

Slow Carb Diet – Day 8

165.8 lbs / 17.9% BF / 62.6% water

Still no change in numbers. I feel like my body is changing, but that could just be wishful mirror gazing. It’s only day 2 on PAGG. It probably takes a few days for it to start doing it’s thing.

I’m still working my way through the book. I’m a slow reader most of the time and I haven’t had much time to sit down and just read. I just got to the kettle bell swing. That looks promising. I don’t want to get bit, just burn some fat. My goal, I think, is 12% BF at the same weight, or even a few pounds heavier. I’m already at the top end of my heaviest in my life, 170 lbs being the most. I realize I don’t have much, if any, weight to lose, but I definitely could lose some weight and gain some muscle. And my real goal, outside of aesthetics, is to be a better rock climber, and a tri-athlete. It seems lofty, but the only way to improve is to do things that you’re not sure you can do.

Breakfast

8:15 am
AGG+B5G (as I started cooking)
2 eggs, fried in butter
3 oz spinach, wilted
1/2 cup lintels
12 oz coffee+coco+van+cin

30 air squats
30 wall presses
20 chest pulls

I think I’m going to change the wall presses to regular push-ups at home or the shop.

Lunch

12:45 pm
1/2 cup lentils
2 hard boiled eggs
1/2 avocado
water

3:00 pm
coffee

lb:13 + rb:13 + c:39 + w:35 + h:36 + lt:20 + rt:20 = 176 total inches

1/2 cup / 2.8 oz lentils

30 chest pulls

Slow Carb Diet – Day 6

9:15 am – 166.4 lbs / 17.8% bf / 62.7% water

Cheat day was fun, but now it’s over and back to standard meals. I don’t feel nearly as bad today as I thought I might. So that’s good.

I’m concerned that my stats don’t seem to be changing for the 1st week. Everything is staying almost exactly the same. I haven’t been taking size measurements though, so maybe there is some change there. Also, I haven’t been doing any air squats or wall pushups or any specifically premeal exercises. My supplements should be coming today, so I can get started on the PAGG+ stack. The ‘+’ is for the brain function supplements that I’m adding (Ginko Biloba, 5-HTP and B Complex).

Breakfast

9:30
1/2 cup lentils
3.1 oz brussel sprouts
2 eggs, scrambled
12 oz coffee, cin-coco-van
16+ oz water

30 air squats
30 wall presses
30 chest pulls

I’m not quite sure I’m drinking as much water as I should. I need to get quart size bottles to carry water so I can be sure to drink 3-4 quarts per day. It’s difficult to track from a glass and random bottles of water.

Lunch

3:00ish pm
1/2 cup lentils
1 chicken thigh
Steamed sweet potato
1/2 avocado

AGG plus 5htp, B complex and gingko

30 air squats
30 wall presses
20 chest thingies

I feel like shit today. Super high molds.

Dinner

3.5 oz tofu
1/2 cup lentils
1/2 avocado
2 small tomatoes
water

I forgot AGG and didn’t do exercises. Still feeling terrible from molds.

12:15 took PAGG before bed
