I started this new thread for tracking progress going forward.
Not much change in weight since I last updated three weeks ago, but BF% has moved a bit in the right direction.
I've added to Body fat in order to perhaps see progress that may or may not be apparent simply looking at weight. I think I've decided that my weight target will be 165 and then maintain in a +/- 5 lb range.
In the past week my weight has fluctuated between 172.2 and 180.4, so I'm roughly 10 pounds away.
I will also continue to stay in shape via running and exercise as needed as this activity supports my sense of well being and confidence.
For the next month I'm going to eat every day OMAD style. Having ended the weekly water fasting will mean smaller weekly weight swings. Last week I threw caution to the wind one day and had some salami and cheese at lunch time, violating my eating window. I know I'm really letting my hair down now, that's why I'm calling this "New Horizons".
I am currently experimenting with the macro's in my diet.
For example right now I'm eating a diet consisting of roughly 96% animal sourced foods, so I'm fueled mainly by fat and have upped my protein intake considerably while practically zeroing out carb's. I'm going to evaluate this for a time and see how it feels. My goal is by Jan 1st to have in mind a plan for maintenance that I can begin for 2018.
