In the last two months, I gained 8lbs. I stopped weighing myself a while back. When I saw my weight recently (6lbs higher in one month) I thought for sure it must be water weight and/or muscle gain; but alas, my pants do not fit and after a week my weight has not changed.
Slow carb helped me to lose weight. What I love about it is that it seems to be more forgiving. It is easy to eat at restaurants. It allows for cheat days. I can eat crap food in moderation after hard cardio. Reminder: Slow Carb is not low carb.
The main thing I want to change this time while doing Slow Carb is that I want to eat less meat. I will be trying out black bean and veggie patty recipes. It’s hard to find recipes that follow the Slow Carb Diet.
I don’t want to diet forever, nor do I want to lose a ton of weight “just because”. When I did this eating plan, I felt like I was not in bondage to food. Lately, food stresses me out. I liked weighing 130. I look fine at 138, but I felt small at 130 🙂 It may not be a maintainable weight for me…my body loves being 138! It stuck there for years. I just want to find a comfortable place and stay within a range of that.
I’ll keep you updated on how it goes! And let me know if you find any good patty recipes that don’t use carbs other than legumes.
