The end of week 5 - Finding a balance
Numbers this week are identical to last week. Muscle mass is the same, body fat too.
I'm trying something new this week. I ate Carnivore junk food all week. My diet this week consisted of:
- Hot Dogs
- Polish Sausage
- Bacon (not too bad)
- Eggs (not too bad except for the ones I got from fast foods restaurants)
- Deli meat
- Food truck taco meat
I did throw in some bone broth and I tried ground lamb for the first time. In general, the food this week was pretty crappy.
Honestly though, how I felt through the week didn't change too much. I had little more soreness after workouts and had to take an extra day off which I didn't have to do the last 2 weeks.
The biggest difference was in the consistency of my poop. It was softer, a little runnier, and I had more gas/pressure associated with it.
I'm done with beer. Since I started this, I had 2 beers on Memorial Day weekend, and 1 beer over this weekend. Both times, the day after, I was bloated, pained, and had explosive "movements". Where I"ve been going an average of once a day, these two days I went 3-4 times in a few hours.
I'm done with beer.
I'm testing bourbon tonight. I'll let you know how it goes..... If I can't handle bourbon, I may quit this diet. (Joking, kind of). I have 14 different bottles of bourbon at home. It is my drink of choice and I will miss it if I can't make it work.
