Maintenance – One Month In

I’m doing pretty well with my Low Carb maintenance at least from a weight perspective. I have been weight stable over the past four weeks at around 166 +/- 4 lbs:

I hit a new low at 162 lbs two weeks ago and used a lot of salt to increase my water weight and level out the fluctuations by adding electrolytes (Messing Around With Electrolytes).

My [food] macros were set to:

  • Protein : 165-174g
  • Carbs: < 20
  • Fat: 145-155

Here’s how I did over the past week (Cronometer Gold would provide a larger window of time but it costs money).

I’ve gone over on my Protein by about 10% (from the lower limit). My Protein at 183 were matched by my carbs plus fat grams of 183g. That is the maintenance plan of Dr Ted Naiman.

My blood sugars have been good over this time period although they were messed up a bit when I got a cortisone shot in my shoulder.
