Days 1 and 2 of 90

Goal of this challenge: Simply to tally how well I do sticking to my diet plan over the next 90 days.

Good days: 1
So-so eating: 0
Off the mark: 1
Late snacks: 1

My most recent diet tweak to go VLC/deep keto for the first time since 2015 ended up not being such a great fit for me for several reasons. I found it too restrictive and harder to stick to. Satiety wasn't any better and I tended to overeat fat. I didn't make any progress with my weight and my LDL-C shot up again. So I've decided to go back to how I was eating 2 years ago when I successfully lost the last 30 or 40 pounds to reach my low of 190 pounds. This tweak is a little higher in carbs, a lot higher in fiber, and involves tracking my food with an eye on total net carbs and calories. It will include periodic IFs as well. I posted the details HERE in my journal. This will likely be my WOE for now and into the foreseeable future. It worked. I may as well stick with it.

I will complete this 90 day challenge by posting here regularly. It is merely a tally of how well I'm doing with my plan over the next 90 days. The categories are a little subjective, but I have enough experience with this to know a good eating day from a bad one. The days where I can't decide good from bad will fall into the So-So category. From past experience I tend to remain on the keto side of the fence if I keep net carbs < 40 and I tend to lose weight if the calories are closer to 2000 than they are to 3000 (or more). Those will be the two primary drivers of what makes a good day or a bad day. As a side goal I will track days when I snack after dinner. I like the idea of a daily 12 hour fast. I believe that it is beneficial in many ways and I want get back into that habit.

I started this challenge on Sunday April 1st and didn't do a good job that day. Yesterday was on target.

Day 30 of 90

Rigid:
~ Maximum of 25 net carbs per day - 21
~ Water intake of at least 20 oz. - 40 oz.

Probably Needed:
~ 12 meais off plan (equals one per week) Controlled and planned
4/12

Notes:
Good, good day yesterday. I see I have used half of my "day off plan passes" and I am not half way to 90 days yet. Means I need to tighten things up. Kind of a wonky week last week that lent itself to not making good decisions.
