4.6lbs down in two days, just from going zero carb. Or, as reddit prefers, keto.
Diet has consisted of American-sized steaks, leafy greens, coffee, water, and the savior: mini babybel. Plural might be babybeli?
These things are tasty-awesome. Buy a bag of 15 or so, take them out and pop them like, I don’t know, blueberry vodka shots at 3am.
Exercise? I’ve been biking everywhere. Colorado being Colorado, you have to have some kind of extreme outdoor activity every single day. Thus marathon-like hikes across plains that look like some scene from Prometheus only in full color. Without the aliens. But, with bears, which is almost as bad. Not yogi bear or honey monster. Real, actual, eat your face bears.
Like most things, there’s not a lot of data behind exercise giving you expected outcomes. A rare glimmer of hope was seen recently with this NYT article, neatly distilled by 7-min.com in to something usable:
Just go to 7-min.com, hit start…. and that’s it. I’m totally looking forward to the 6 and 5 minute workouts.
Incredibly, NYT link to the original paper supporting this exercise set. I’m a little skeptical of the depth of proof and unaware of exactly what the “Human Performance Institute” is, but hey, it’s SCIENCE!
