I am still feeling about 80% better and my brain is coming back online, so it's time for me to get analytical with my numbers. If you don't like analytical, you might want to skip this post! I like to analyze. I think it's fun and can be useful.
In late September, I was 219 pounds. My average stats per day were 1421 calories, 39% carbs, 24% protein, 37% fat. This got me a 2 pound gain.
In early October, I was 221 pounds. My average stats per day were 1357 calories, 18% carbs, 25% protein, 57% fat. This led to a maintain at 221 for a few weeks, but I felt so much better with the higher fat percentage and lower carbs, so I decided to lower my calories and keep the ratios basically the same.
My average stats per day the last week of October and into November until I got sick were about 1225 calories, 20% carbs, 30% protein, and 50% fat. I dropped two pounds and then stayed at 219.
So I gained 2 pounds in September. I lost 2 pounds in October. So far in November I have had a maintain... I was 219 on the first and am 219 today.
Now I am doing Medifast. Yesterday on Thanksgiving my stats were 948 calories, 36% carbs, 48% protein, 16% fat. This is a totally different ratio with much lower fat than I've been eating and much higher protein. I am still keeping carbs under 100g but they are a little higher than they have been in some time. I am still eating gluten free so far.
There's only one week left in November and I am hoping for a loss for the month. I think I'll get it. I am sticking to this plan like glue and seeing where it gets me.
