Your body might need a bit of a break from dieting so hard.

Is this ~1.5-2h/day or something else?

At first I didn’t realise this was a link. Seems like sometimes you’re far below the 1800 mark. Why are you doing OMAD but not quite? (looking at the greens powder and mints (?))


all walking, 3-5 miles total, over the course of the day. been walking more than 100 miles per month tracked with map my walk.

I was eating a bag of microwave broccoli most days at dinner. Decided to try greens powder and a capsule of indole-3-carbinol daily instead.

Taking the greens around 6 am after lifting because already taking creatine in the morning started mixing them together.

I prefer to have all the calories in the evening. I can have dinner, then while watching tv if I want yogurt or some popcorn I can because plenty of calories left.

Mints were an impulse buy at a convenience store.

It appears that when you do go over, the primary causes are carbs and fats.

What are you doing that keeps your protein so consistent but such variability with carbs and fats?

eating what my wife made my kids for dinner. ie: bacon cheeseburger, spaghetti, chili, pasta, or at a restaurant

Sounds hard to track those meals and sound like they may be highly variable in calories

That’s an unenviable position, but I can relate. I’m on a sodium restricted diet, and have a wife and kid.

I’ve had to learn to forgo what is being made sometimes, or just skip all together on some stuff and just make my own.

The flip side is that when I make dinner, everybody eats what I’m making because it fits my criteria and they have no such restriction.

The end result is that I end up cooking for the family a lot more, and for myself anyways more often than not. There has also been a lot of cooperation and flexibility in what we eat as a family, which starts at the grocery store.

I was getting stronger still. My clothes were getting looser. I looked leaner in the mirror. So, I decided to not change anything.

Down to 260lbs. Lost 7 pounds from 9/7/2020 to 10/29/2020.
