Finally broke 210 today. The diet was a little strange yesterday but mostly good. Going strictly by calorie count I was over, but I think the TEF of some of my foods was enough to overcome that. I also seem to have good success with avocados, even though my macro and calorie intake goal would want me to steer away from them. I also eat out for social reasons, even though I had just recently had my dinner. I went to mission bbq and chose to only have the turkey. I got a strange look from the cashier.
And that’s the thing when you really commit to a diet. People look at you oddly. You really have to be prepared to push against that discomfort. Stick to your plan as much as possible and if you can’t do that at least try to log what you ate or even take photos. Your body is like a science project. You need to know your baseline and act accordingly if you want to change the balance.
Also, you should let your friends be aware that you are trying to diet for a while. Enlist their help if you can. If they give you shit for it…maybe you should spend less time around them. On to the stats:
