For the last 2-3 months, I have been increasing my fitness and eventually going from couch to jogging 30 minutes about 4-5 times per week, generally doing 3-4km overall.
But I am a pretty big fella weighing in at 107kg and 6 ft tall.
Over the last 2 weeks, I decided to drop sugar & carbs as much as possible from my diet. (Not that I was dieting, my calorie intake wasn't really that high lately) Just typically had Sandwiches, Banh Mi, Toast, salads etc. I am averaging 30-50grams of carbs per day and instead loading up on fats and proteins.
In this period I haven't eat anything till 3pm everyday (very late lunch like a chicken salad) and finish the day with a light dinner after my jog at around 9pm (with perhaps 2-3 eggs, small yogurt etc). Drink black coffee, tea and lots of water. I drink nothing else. I rarely get hungry, have absolutely loads of energy, sleep well and can kick off my day without effort.
I haven't weighed myself or anything, but I have definitely lost some weight in the last 2 weeks. Just wondering why in the last week especially I have been feeling extremely energetic when some days I don't even have more than 1,000 calories - and I am completely fine with that. Do sugar & carbs (or one of them) really make that much difference? I was always under the impression that carbs is what provided energy! Confused!
