Still going well @iacas?  Sometimes food can get a bit boring but we change things up as best we can.

We went to the beach a couple weeks back and I didn't blow it out carb-wise but I can guarantee I wasn't in keto at any point.  Surprisingly, I didn't put any weight on.  I've actually started to eat a bit more...trying to add muscle and I think i've limited calories a bit too much.

I didn't get a chance to watch the video when you first posted it, and almost forgot about this. I'm glad it wasn't what I thought it was going to be.

It's definitely been pretty boring. A lot of the same things. But, so far, whatever. I've still managed to stay under 50g that I know of every day.

Like I said I try to stay under 40g, but I don't measure how many peas or green beans I eat, so that might take me from 39 to 44 or something some day.

I also haven't weighed myself. I have no idea how much weight I've lost.

Have you had to tighten the ol' belt an extra notch?  That's as good as a scale.

I'm still doing a lot of eggs in the morning with an occasional smoothie (yogurt, peanut butter, frozen banana and almond milk.)  For lunch, again, lots of low-carb wraps and salads.  Dinner we get some variety and are looking for new things to cook.

Notice any other benefits?  Sleep?  Energy?  I'm still on the fence on the intermittent fasting.  I really love the concept and benefits but it's not ideal if I'm trying to add any muscle from what I gather.  Kinda seems weird to load up on a couple thousand calories in a short time...but, hey, that's what our ancestors did.

Yeah. And my waist has never been big, so I've been surprised at that a bit.

What kind of yogurt? Just a plain greek vanilla or something? The banana has a decent amount of sugar, but you don't count ANY fruit sugars, really? That would help me out if true.

No, not really. I've never had much of an issue sleeping, nor with energy.

I mostly eat twice a day - breakfast and dinner. With a little dark chocolate at about 7-8pm. So I basically do fast from ~7:30-5 every day, and then from 8-7:30 the next day.

Sometimes I have some almonds during the day or something, though.

Yup.  Plain greek.  Banana does have sugar but I only put in a 1/3 to half of one at most (frozen.)  Peanut butter has a small amount of carbs but I'd estimate that the smoothie I make is around 10 or so net carbs.  I try and keep breakfast around 10ish if I don't skip to fast through to lunch.

I do count those sugars.  Wife and I feel that if you're going to have sugar, better from a natural source rather than refined/added sugar.  I don't really track net carbs any more.  I just know what works in the structure of what we are eating.  Carbs from vegetables and fruits don't seem to affect me as much.  We are even eating sweet potatoes now...splitting one with some dinners.  I mostly just try to avoid breads (non-whole grain), rice/pasta/starch and desserts.

I like greek yogurt over plain yogurt. It just has a bit more flavor to it. 

I like doing about 1/4-1/3 cup of blueberries, warm them up in the microwave (I buy the frozen kind), then add the yogurt and walnuts. Works well for an evening snack since I tend to eat lunch/dinner at 3:30 more often now. Its when I get hungry.

Unless you eat bananas, you have to eat a ton of fruit to get a lot of carbs.

I don't consider 27g of carbs "low carb." 🙂

    • There's a downside to having the ability to practice full swing at home with real shots:  if you can't film it, you don't necessarily know if you're making progress. Case in point:  my slow swing when practicing feels very slow;  looking at it on video today at the range, I don't think it's as slow as I think it is. I took several videos today (I can post them, probably in my "My Swing!" thread,, f someone thinks it'd help me get feedback towards progress) at the practice range.  Each one, two slow rehearsal backswings, followed by a slow full swing.  The first two look like I'm getting what I want.  The third... well, it gets to parallel, not really much past parallel, but when the goal is to stop 45 degrees before parallel, that isn't close enough.
    • Was looking at qualifier leaderboard, wondering how the guy watching all this did, shot 79, the hole right after the fight he parred it. Another thing I noticed was Eric Axley in the leaderboard, wondering if that's the Eric Axley that won an event on the PGA Tour.

    • I am going to write more about this in the "stop conning yourself" thread later today because I am still conning myself, at least a little bit. Day 114.  I went to the practice facility near me this morning.  I got some video of my long game practice routine and the picture has improved but not really finished changing.  I'm not sure if that's enough.  Also my slow swings aren't as slow as I thought they were, or I'm really misinterpreting the video.  I also did chipping and putting, including taking 15 putts to finish a 3' drill of coins.  
    • Pretty damn accurate, I just got my wedge. Order date was 4/11 and today is 6/17 so I'm right at 9 weeks. Specs are -1/2'' off the shaft, true temper s300 shaft and winn dri-tac midsize grip.
