After the 2nd recharge of Carbs

Hi there!
Seems like this time it got better!
I gained only 1 kg and hopefully, i will loose it by tomorrow.
What I noticed today, this morning is my great energy! I didn't feel tired at all, nor bloated!
On sat I did the recharge almost perfectlyy: 150 gr carbs, 40/50 gr of fat and low protein
Yesterday I did not my best by keepin high levels of carbs and fat too but low protein, somethin very hybrid but I did not eat too much so I probably kept the levels of eventual damages down!

I, of course am back on track, today!
Let's see what the scale will tell tomorrow!

Keep in touch! 
Stay focused!

Learn to create a meal with what you have!

Nowadays, life is so damn full of thinks to do, multitasking is not an option, but a must.
We ain't got that much time to take care of ouselves. Sometimes we even ain't got time to go to the supermarket!

Tonight I felt really full of energy and it is the 2nd week of metabolic diet with low daily carbs intake! 
So, reasons for this energy could be the re-entry of Alcalin-oti (calcium, magnesium, potassium, bicarbonate) in my diet and the use of protein beef powder for today'snacks!

I literally kicked ass in the gym tonight!

Here's my dinner!

Shirataki 150 gr (rehydratated pasta)
Spices (black pepper, mango powder)
Evo oil
Soy 


Tasted really good! Again, low carbs, high fibers!

Flax seed in case of fiber deficiencies

So, there's one thing so far I have noticed about my metabolic diet! Being the diet poor of Cho, I am having too few calories in fibers! Too low for letting me going to the bath regularly. That could really become a serious problem, stopping me from getting results from this meticulous programme.

So, flax seed could be a good solution and I have started taking 10 gr/day in a glass of water being held there for an entire night.

First thing in the mornig is half of a lemon juice with water (lighly hot)
And a glass of those seeds.

Getting better today, so I'll mantain this new entry for the next days in order to normalize the situation.

Tomorrow'snacks

So, tomorrow I'll have those two snacks

1 - in the morning

20 gr Parmigiano Reggiano
80 gr Cucumber
4 gr almonds

2 - in the evening

80 gr Cucumber
10 gr mayo
10 gr peanuts

Sooooooo, metabolic!!

Shirataki rice!

This dinner was very satisfactory!

Shirataki rice 50 gr.
Green pepper 15 gr
Black pepper
Chicken Wurstel 150 gr
Fucus 2 gr
E.v.o. Oil

So delicious!

Do you know tgat Shirataki is a root? It is completely low calorie food! 
Domething like 6 gr carbs per 100 gr!
That's all it has! Total kcalories? 24!!

It contains glucomannan that seems like it can stimulate the absorbtion of the carbs. 

It's like a little miracle, isn't it?

It does not taste like pasta but it's a good substitute. 
You somehow feel like you're having some pasta for dinner, but you don't and you are only taking 24 kcal i.o. 200!!

Simply fantastic!! And you know what? It seems very light at taste, like if you're eating something so delicate, even if I added lots of spices you'll still have the sensation of have eaten something light!

You won't get up full and bloated like you would have done after having eated some pasta, with the same ingredients I used.

Tryyyyyyyyyyyy it!!

Wrapping scrub for water retention loss

Hi there!

Being on a period, is not that easy for a woman!
It always end up with a bad mood, bloated belly and of course, water retention on our legs!!
This is the worst period ever of the month!
You gotta fight against sadness, irritability, wild mood swings!
And of couse, you think you have worked hard for so long, for nothing! :)
Thank God, those bad feelings have an end too!
So, to repair a bit the damage done by hormones, I tried to wrap my legs and glutes with an homemade scrub rich in essential oils that helping letting out the exceeding water.

So...

Sunflower oil
Coffee powder
Hymalayan salt
Various essential oils (see the picture).

Goodnight ladies!

Onion
Green olives
E.v.o. Oil
Pepper
Aaaaanf Fucus, just 3 gr!

Listen to the signals

Ok, so had 1st weekend with the goal of recharging cho but failed!
I have two things that might have negatively influenced the proof-of-the-scale moment.
One is that I was in my period, the first and worst days, the second is my mistake: had too much total Cho!
So % of macro this time should have been like Cho 35-50% Pro 15-20% Fat 25-40%
So, apparently I kept my diet in those parameters but, total kcal of Cho were too much by the end of the day.
The suggestion was 135-140 gr
I took 190-220 gr instead!!
So, while I should have been ok, I found myself boubcing back to + 3 kilos!
And that's really frustrating but, I'm already back to the week regimen and I know I'll be fine in a couple of days!
What I learned is that I need a plan, also for those weekends, otherwise I'll surely do the same mistakes again!
Gotta be focused and try to select from those Cho I would love to eat me on those days and pick them up one by one and try to observe the reaction of my body after have eaten them!
So, more consciousness, more focused, less distracted by freedom sensation!
Keep in touch, friends!
1st day of the second turn of testing period.

'Night folks!
