Default Re: Getting back on Keto

If anyone reads this, is it possible to exercise too much? I have taken a 3 day break and...I have lost 4 pounds, eating as I have been since I started on this healthier lifestyle.

I think exercising causes your muscles to hold water as they repair themselves, so not exercising for three days may have released that water, hence the weight loss.

Its like how body builders learn to manipulate their exercise, fuel and fluid intake in the week or two before a competition in order to show off their muscles to the best advantage, muscles pumped but skin not bloated.

So youre really seeing the effects of your diet and exercise over the long term, not the past 3 days. You are doing incredible!

I am the same way as you described a few posts ago - if i lose some, i almost compulsively gain it back. I almost had a heart attack at the drs this week when my wgt was still down the 5 lbs i lost last month!

Thanks. I was getting really frustrated not seeing the results I wanted. However, when I workout I tend to continually push harder and harder. Maybe that is why I am not really seeing it on the scale so much. I definitely feel better overall regardless, but the weight loss would definitely help with my overall health. I have a good 70ish pounds I want to lose still. Slow and steady. I have to remember the weight gain didn't happen overnight and the weight loss needs to be slow and steady to be healthy and maintainable. I will be doing hip and waist measurements each month. See what happens. I also know this needs to be a lifestyle change that is what I am focusing on...or trying to...finding something that I can maintain longterm so that when I lose it...it will be easier to keep off.

I cut out dairy, mostly by default because my refrigerator broke (its a long story). I think i feel better overall. I dont have days where i just feel cranky-ill. I still have it occasionally, but i think the fact that i would binge on it was a sign i had some intolerance to it. I mean, overeating cereal or yogurt? Lame!!

Angry Re: Getting back on Keto

Really blew my diet the last couple days and feel like crap was a bit before that too. We had a loss in the family 2 days ago. It's been rough. I don't have the energy to keep up with much of anything let alone the diet I have been following. I'm pretty sure any of my not feeling good is probably stress related...not diet.
