Well, I’m stumped. I have no idea what’s going on…
Let me explain. I find myself, again on a diet. I gained the same 30 pounds 3 times now, I’m losing it again.
But this time something is very wrong.
I started last Sunday, had 100% perfect adherence till this Saturday when I had a planned cheat meal (Not a cheat day, just a few slices of pizza).
My diet is based on Precision Nutrition; I only have carbs at breakfast (Or Post-workout), good carbs of course. Steel Cut oats, an apple. Whatever.
All my other meals are lean protein and vegetables. Some Low-Carb Metobolic Drive is thrown in there too.
I have GAINED weight since I started. Sure, I feel much better (As one always does when they eat right) But I started at 228.2 and I just stepped off the scale at 229.6.
What makes me want to rip out my hair even more is the fact I just got transferred from a sit-down job to one where I walk 10-14 miles a day. I thought “Sweet! Active recovery/ burn more calories outside of the gym, etc. etc.”… nope
The only difference is, (And I’ve been sitting here thinking for the past 10 minutes) is this time the only supplements I’m taking are Omega 3’s and some digestive enzymes. In the past I’ve always taken some kind of fat loss supp. Could that really be the only thing…?
I am very VERY reluctant to suggest this because so many people use supps as a crutch, I thought I did not need them this time (I planned for things to go a little slower) but I’ve never had a weight GAIN after the first week!
