Low Calorie High Protein PE Ratio Diet Daily Update

Enjoying the flexibility of this diet particularly more flexibility with carbs. Keeping a positive PE ratio will always mean a low carb diet but not as restrictive as I have been on previous diets usually less than 50g a day. Last night had chips with my grilled fish (110g of chips with 35g of carbs). This week on different days I have had a cup of spaghetti, a cup of white rice, and 2 pieces of toast. On each day I have maintained a positive PE Ratio and while not testing pre and post meal FBG has been in the 4's each morning. Interesting that during this week weight has varied by 1.6kg over the week. Official weigh in day tomorrow


FBG 4.8
Carbs 79g
Fat 52g
Protein 155g
PE Ratio 1.18
Calories 1484
Weight 79.7kg (79.8kg yesterday)
Body Fat 23.2 (23.4% yesterday)
Muscle 39% (39% yesterday)
Hydration 52.7% (52.7% yesterday)
