HCG Diet R3P3D5: 1st Steak Day
I kind of over did my start to p3 this time- I felt uncomfortably full those first few days of p3. I found myself eating too much. I found myself quickly almost 3 lbs above LDW so I did my first steak day since starting HCG Injections roound. I had always been pretty shy of doing a steak day because I remember trying to do a fast day in times previous and feeling so weak and hungry by noon that I had to eat. But surprisingly, the steak day was easy!
I realized that I think this is because of the fact that I wasn’t consuming starches and sugars during p3, so moving to basically what you’d call a fast day wasn’t such a huge drop in carbs, so hunger and weakness was more limited than it would have been had I eaten a bag of chips the previous day. Also my meals had been pretty high fat the whole past week so I think that helped my steak day go smoothly as well.
I actually enjoyed the Steak day / Fast day so much that I thought to myself that I’d almost like to do a fast day once a week. It felt very clean for my body to have a rest from eating and from being full.
Also! My body slid right back into ketosis after the Steak day- and this makes me think that perhaps this one of the reasons that Dr. Simeon’s prescribed “steak days” after the protocol work well- being on p3 with no starches and no sugars, it’s easy for the body to get right back into ketosis under the right conditions- like a steak day for instance. Just interesting to me.
I was down 1.4 from the steak day to 124.2.
I just discovered Crossfit and I talk about it briefly in this vlog. As of now, September 23, 2012, I’ve been going to Crossfit (aka xfit) 3-4 times a week for a little less than 9 months and I’ve gained over 12 lbs of muscle during that time. If you want to get strong and in shape, Crossfit is the way to go, period. Love love love it.
