May 3 2016 | Changes to the plan

So i jumped on the scales this morning and they dropped 2 kilos :) So yesterday was 127.8 kilos and this morning 125.8 kilos.

I am in a IIFYM group on facebook....and the owner owns the site www.iifym.com, anyway got him to work out my macros (as i noticed a lot of online calculators were telling me to have much higher protein and lower carbs) anyway i got a email with very detailed information. (This did cost me a once off $47) It not only gave me macros but also a lot of information on how to adjust the macros as you lose weight and "refeed days"

So the macros are carbs 250 grams, protein 160 grams, fat 80 grams, 30-35 grams of fibre and close to 4 litres of water a day.

So I am going to try this...ive always believed eat as much as you can whilst losing weight. And i will be back at the gym tomorrow so i think with exercise included this will likely work well and will be sustainable and really support my workouts. The recommendation has been to work on averages as I have been doing....and to do one full month before making any adjustments (unless i gain a ridiculous amount)

My cold is better today altho i took panadeine forte for the headache last night and so still a bit groggy from that. Plus its rainy today so apart from going to the shops to pick up some food....will be a day at home watching friends and you tube ;)

*********************************************************************************

Its later in the day....and I just dont think i can eat that much ^^^^ Just cos it feels wrong.....it feels excessive. I totally agree with the whole eat as much as you can whilst losing weight....but...250 grams of carbs seems way too much. But im still glad i got it done...simply cos it gave me so much information on how to modify my macros as i lose weight.

Oh and I went and bought some new running bare clothes. They had a new collection for plus sizes...so i bought some workout pants, a t shirt and a pullover (i love running bare stuff)

Running bare?? Is that on line?

I have to admit when I read how many carbs I was shocked but at least you tried. You may find you get close to that on high exercise days
