I have reported here on 430ToFit that for about 2 weeks I have been kind of on a plateau, when it comes to my weight. Despite doing a lot of fasting, and being very strict about my diet when I do eat, for a couple of weeks, I really have not lost any weight. Sometimes I might lose a pound, then go back up that pound the next day, or a few days later. It has been frustrating, but I also know that this is normal when it comes to weight loss, so I just keep following the path.
Yesterday, I lost a pound, but I was not sure if I would fluctuate back up again. Today, I am down 2 pounds! So, in the past 2 days, I am down 3 pounds. Made me feel real good to see that number on the scale this morning.
I feel that I am approaching a milestone now. Today’s weight was 261 pounds. Back before I started using Insulin, I weighed 255 pounds. That was the lowest weight I had been for many years, since I was in High School in fact! Now, I am just 6 pounds away from getting back to that weight! When I was 255 pounds, I really great! Now, I am looking forward to going lower than that!
When I started using insulin, I gained about 70 pounds, no matter how hard I tried to control my weight. Since then, I learned that insulin is a hormone that directs our bodies to store more fat! Now, I am no longer using any insulin, and I am eating (when I do eat) in a way that will cause my body to generate the lowest amount of insulin possible. It is really paying off!
A couple of days ago, I was watching a video by a doctor on YouTube. I wanted to share the video here, but I could not find it! So, I will just explain what I saw.
The lady on the video explained that if you have stopped losing weight, hit a plateau, one of the reasons might be that you are not consuming enough fat in your diet! Over the past month or so, I have been taking in a lot less fat. When I saw this video, I wondered if this might be the reason why I have stopped losing weight.
I used to drink “Bulletproof Coffee” (bpc) twice a day. Now, I never drink it anymore, I just felt that I no longer needed it. Bulletproof coffee is coffee that is made by adding a tablespoon of MCT Oil (Coconut oil is commonly used) and a tablespoon of grass fed butter. This adds a lot of fat and calories to your coffee.
So, I decided to try drinking bpc again and see if that helped. Sure enough.. since I started back on the bpc, I have lost 3 pounds! We’ll see how that continues, but so far it is looking pretty good!\
I am again, happy with the results I am seeing!
