I may be completely off but since cutting my daily ~5 tablespoons of sugar in my coffee and now using none. I’ve also been walking more than usual and watching my portions more than usual. Yet I’ve gained 1 lb so far.
Now here’s where I may be completely off but could me cutting sugar out make my body exert energy less or something and storing fat more than usual??? Because sugar tricks you into thinking you have more energy than you do so now you cut it out your body says “omggggg where’s all my energy gone. I need to store more fat than usual”.
And In a few weeks maybe I’ll start losing lbs.
What do y’all think???
Last year I had a health kick and stayed the same for a week before I started to lose weight. That is why this time I didn’t weigh myself for nearly two weeks.
It is silly measuring yourself every day. Daily fluctuations can be around 2lb for some people.
Once or fortnightly weighing is the best way to measure to see a difference.
First weeks are often misleading as the body adjusts to gaining muscle and losing fat adjustments. That was certainly the case for me.
Hmm never thought about that before-- maybe!
Could also be water weight if your sodium intake is too high.
Yeah @labratmat I’d say the 1 lb gain is trivial but I’m just surprised it’s gone up at all?? I think I’m gonna wait till next Wednesday in the morning to weigh myself again. Sounds like a good idea. If I’m up another pound I gotta start questioning my diet. Hope it all works.
@Schztuna with the heat wave I’ve been drinking water more than usual but also more dehydrated thanks!
I hear ya! Glad we made it through the heat-- now for a day of rain and floods
Wow yeah I’m
At my parents house now
And they have wetlands
They’re all flooding and shizz
And then we have not a cloud in the ten day forecast after today
Cool that we share our weather and can talk about it. I love talking weather as cliche as it is to lol.
Your parents’ yard sounds like a nice place to watch nature
Yea I sometimes feel like an old person for talking about the weather so much but it can be pretty fascinating at times too! We are in the same weather zone!
I’m on a walk and there must’ve been a trouble with someone’s drainage because there’s a river instead of where the road was…
Oh whoa-- it’s coming down here as well right now… we might get some flash flooding later today.
İ m drinking my coffee with one sugar. Other than i don t get any sugar daily. Because in turkey sugar not made from sugar beet. İt made from corn syrup which is highly diabetic. That s why i have to be careful😕
Can you use sweetener?I use it all the time because I’m diabetic.
Great job quitting sugar! If you are sure you are eating less it could be water fluctuation. Nothing to worry about.
