FAT-LOSS GOAL – DAY 33

8/7/2018  TUESDAY Day 33

 

FAT-LOSS GOAL

Had I set a specific number of pounds I wanted or expected to lose, it wouldn’t have been an experiment as I indicated in my first post regarding the AFC RAPID FAT-LOSS DIET.

Perhaps I should have defined rapid. Maybe I did. I better go back and check.

It appears that my five week diet was more like a maintenance diet than a reducing one.

I basically ate what I normally eat only less, but not a lot less, obviously not less enough to lose a significant amount of fat.

I cut out margarine, except sometimes to cook with, years ago. Steve likes margarine, so I put it into recipes occasionally.

I love mayonnaise. That’s my condiment of choice on sandwiches, or just by the spoonful when I’m craving fat. The jar is still in the refrigerator after nearly five weeks, which says something.

AFC Rapid Fat-Loss Diet DAY 31

8/5/2018 SUNDAY Day 31

I’m not counting calorie and fat grams in my last week, nor am I keeping a record of what I eat, preparing myself instead for what to do after the rapid fat-loss diet ends, using what I learned from recording everything I consumed.

Winding down I am. I’m not comfortable being so public with every little detail of what I consume and how I exercise. The fact that I did it for four weeks stunned even me. I’ve started a lot of journals in my lifetime, never lasting more than a day or two.

Calculating the nutritional data of every ingredient of every recipe I made, took a lot of time out of my day and evening. The stress of doing that may have hampered my fat-loss. I don’t know, but this last week will be essentially out of view, then when the weigh-in day is here I’ll see how I did. Frankly I think I’ll consume less, but it still might not push me beyond the 9.5 pound loss to date.

I read an article about low pressure recently and posted it to this site. For years I’ve had it, but no doctor ever believed me, because it was normal in the doctor’s office. Sometimes I take it at home only because Steve has a device to take his, and it’s been really low at times. I’m thinking now that my hunger and jumping up from the computer to go to the refrigerator so often might be a result of my pressure dropping too low.

So I implemented a new plan: Once I’m at the computer, I set my phone alarm at one hour intervals, going up to one hour before Steve gets home from work. When the alarm goes off, within five minutes I have to leave the computer and do five minutes of any type of exercise. I’ve done that for a couple of days now with success.

Anybody can do five minutes. That’s about my attention span for preplanned exercise for anything but walking. Yoga is the same thing – five minutes. Out of bed mattress exercises, going to sleep mattress exercises, same thing – five minutes. I don’t count any more. That’s a success. Counting is the most boring task in the world – to me. I let the alarm count the minutes. I don’t care how many reps – it’s five minutes worth of reps, whatever that is. That works better for me.

I eat less; I feel more energetic and stronger. Deron from Grow Young Fitness stresses the importance of moving as you age, and he is right. We think we move more than we do. Walking everywhere instead of driving isn’t enough if I’m sitting at the computer ten hours a day.

Jumping up to go to the refrigerator was in response to my low blood pressure, that I thought was me being hungry or just needing to move. Now since I preplan the exercise times, I’m a lot less likely to feel the need to jump up for anything. So, that problem is solved.

Sum: People who have low blood pressure should eat more often in small amounts, avoid alcohol and coffee except in small amounts, and should move their body often to keep the blood circulating. Stretching isn’t enough. Work up a sweat by doing mini-exercises rapidly. Do range of motion when you stretch, not when you’re using your own body weight as resistance. I’m back to using the lower resistance cords rapidly and I like it a lot more.

Also, when I exercise I play rock and roll music. It helps the time fly. And most importantly, I turn off all those 24/7 cable news talk shows. Listening to the opinions of a bunch of talking heads vomiting junk doesn’t do anything good for me. I get the news from the net. Success again.

AFC RAPID FAT-LOSS DIET DAY 28

8/2/2018  THURSDAY Day 28

Well, I finally got to a fasting day, which is today. I somehow got connected with a group that fasted to bring awareness to the plight of other animals – protesting through fasting the enslavement, torture and slaughter of these lovely creatures who suffer unfathomable atrocities committed against them by billions of humans, every day of every of every year.

Humans have conveniently blocked out their screams by locking them out of public view in processing plants they call them. If it was such a good deed we humans were performing every day of every year we wouldn’t block the heinous acts from the public eye. We take children to dairy farms – not factory farms, and the slaughterhouse, well, that’s just too painful and mind-disrupting to any sane adult, much less a child.

AFC RAPID FAT-LOSS DIET DAY 20

7/25/2018 WEDNESDAY Day 20

Free day. Wednesday is my first of two days off in the week. No counting anything. No recording anything. I’m taking one free day a week, not two. Two is one too many – in a week. One is enough. Two is overload. Regarding diet only. I can eat and drink anything except that which contains animal products.

The only way to get two days in a row is to take the last day of the week and the first day of the subsequent week.

How Much Fat Should You Eat Per Day?

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggest that 25 to 35 percent of your daily calories should come from fat. So, if you consume 1,500 calories on your weight-loss diet, you’ll want between 42 and 58 grams of fat daily; whereas a person eating 2,000 calories would consume between 56 and 78 grams of fat. Apr 26, 2018

I can list several other articles from Google search that write essentially the same thing way back to 2012.
