Okay everyone, here goes nothing. I’ve taken the plunge on the BSD 800 diet (for now).
I thought it best to do the full-on version for now. I actually probably pretty much started it yesterday. My wife’s cousin came over for the weekend and she has coeliac disease so I decided pretty much to do a carb clearout as well. Right now I have no pasta, no rice, no potatoes, no bread, porridge…
I started yesterday (and today) with some baked eggs in bacon cases; lunch yesterday was a prawn salad with a little olive oil; and dinner was chargrilled tuna steaks with vegetables. We also drank (WAY) too much dark rum so that probably pretty much ruined that day. Dinner today was roast pork with spinach on a large flat mushroom and we’ve just had a small tuna salad for tea. No drinks today (although I may allow myself the occasional single whisky).
Tomorrow’s breakfast will probably be a couple of eggs with some spinach. I’ll work out lunch and dinner later.
I’ve lost 1kg since I weighed myself 2 weeks ago and more generally 4kg since Christmas. I plan to get down to 70kg for now and then we’ll see how we go. My BMI is now 25.1 (drat, so close to being “normal”) but I still have plenty of fat to shift around my stomach.
Why am I doing this?
1) To get rid of the gut fat
2) To improve my BG, hba1c and other vital statistics
3) I’m off on holiday to Ireland in September and I want to be in better shape for that.
Any tips / encouragement / criticism all welcome 🙂
