Hi, did you know that fruits have high enough levels of sugar in them that diabetics have to be careful how much they have? I’m really fucking sick of getting told “y don’t u just eat fruits? lol not hard” like dude, adding fruits to a diet isn’t gonna do much weight wise. Not that I’m fucking diabetic, just saying.
But whatever. That’s beside the point. The point is one day you’re gonna look in the mirror and see what everyone else sees - what a shitty person you are. Good luck with that my dude.
So maybe you know, or maybe you don’t, but I practiced intermittent fasting way before I started keto! I think I even did it before paleo. Now combined with paleo and keto, it’s like the most useful tool ever.
If you’re not familiar with intermittent fasting—well you ought to! Basically, you fast…
One year ago today I hit my “goal weight” and in the one year of maintaining my weightloss I’ve continued to make progress both mentally and physically.
Left: running 4-6x a week, minimal weight training (really just weight machines), still counting calories, eating 1700-1800 calories a day
Right: lifting 5-6x a week, cardio on the elliptical when the mood strikes, no longer counting calories but easily eating 2000+ a day
I’m 130 in both pictures, but my weight hasn’t been completely static, it fluctuates daily (like everyones does), and the couple of times I weighed myself during the winter I was about 135. Now I know it’s not a huge physical difference, I didn’t do any sort of proper bulk/cut, which I may do this year, but the freedom and peace of mind that has come with no longer tracking and counting everything I eat is more progress than I could have ever hoped for.
Also let this be proof that lifting weights will not make you bulky ladies!
