Last Sunday morning I woke up after eating 4,000 calories the day before and saw 62.8 kgs on the scales. One week later I am 4 kilos lighter. Do I need any more proof that that the scales are a complete mind fuck!!
I have 'lost weight' Bigger Loser style this week. How did I do it?
(a) my starting weight was artificially increased by the quantity of food/water/sodium I was still carrying from the day before
(b) I was unknowingly pre-menstrual - my period arrived yesterday two and a half weeks late
(c) I changed my diet during the week by avoiding salicylate containing foods - tomato, sweet potato, zucchini, capsicum, eggplant, deli meat, herbs and spices, vinegar, and litres of tea
(d) I pooped 1-2x every day last week as a result of my dietary changes
Rapid weight loss is rarely rapid fat loss. I am just happy that I am back on track either staying the same or losing fat every 4 day cycle.
