Short intro: I’ve been injured for 4 months. Chronic back pain due to muscle imbalances that I’m still trying to figure out and correct. I can’t do squats or deads. I’ve lost at least 5 pounds of muscle and put on 10 pounds of fat. I’ve grown a belly. I was at sub 10% body fat before. I had never felt better in my life then I got hurt and fucked it all up.
Well I’ve been on a NO carb diet for the past week. 4 to 6 meals a day, chicken, lean beef, and turkey, with shots of olive oil, and peppers/broccoli to keep me satisfied. Its the hardest thing i’ve ever done.
Last night I felt like shit and took a serving of Nyquill to put me to sleep. Right after I took it I thought “holy shit” and looked at the ingredients. I was right, HFCS. About 20 something grams of it and 90 something calories.
I was starting to drop fat FAST. And now I’m trying to do damage control. I believe I was on the brink of reaching ketosis if I hadn’t already. Did I just fuck that up? Anything I can change to help void the friggen nyquill?
