That’s what Vicky said to me as we sat and discussed a new eating plan that she has been using. We talked about keeping our food choices interesting, and learning from different ways of eating, not just eating for the singular goal of losing weight. So guess what I’m going to try now? Carb Cycling! I’m pretty sure its a simplistic version of the Crack Diet. It seems fairly simple to do (I mean I think I can stay on it,) but I am going to have to do some thinking and get a little creative with my food choices. Its just that given no particular limits on types of food, my natural bent is to eat pretty high carb–scones, oatmeal, fruit, lo-bars, oatmeal bars, fruit…you get the picture. So I just have to think a little more to add in more veggies. I think I might be adding in a little more meat on this plan, which is FINE by me.
Anyways, the simple plan for the week is 2 low-carb days (50 grams carbohydrate) one high carb day (200 grams) 2 more low-carb days, a high carb day, and a medium carb day (100 grams.) Protein and fat stays constant each day: 80-100 grams protein and 35-45 grams fat. I am anxious to try it. I just have to get into the groove, and get out some different recipes.
Hah! I was right, Vicky was planning to do a circuit for me, but when I told her about my hard workout, and which muscles were still sore, she decided to give me a break and ‘only’ had me work out on some weights. What? What part of ‘my muscles are sore’ did she not understand? I’m just kidding around. I really love working out with the weights. And she showed me quite a few new exercises to try, most of which were VERY challenging. I could go on, but I really MUST get to bed. Back to work tomorrow. Be good and have a nice rest of the week!
