Low Calorie High Protein PE Ratio Diet Update

Published by muzza3 in the blog muzza3's blog. Views: 134

Doing a two day update as caught up in work arrangements for CoVid lock-down

For a bit of variation and insight I am including daily weigh in figures to show the variation over the week that occurs as I usually only report my weigh in figure beach Sunday. Also as I am using body contour scales that I estimate the weekly trend thought it might be of interest to others to show the variations in Body fat, muscle and hydration.


15 August 2021

FBG 4.6
Carbs 98g
Fat 62g
Protein 172g
PR Ratio 1.07
Calories 1731
Weight 80.4 kg (80.1kg yesterday)
Body Fat 26.1% (26.8% yesterday)
Muscle 37.6% (37.6% yesterday)
Hydration 50.8% (50.9% yesterday)

Main variation from usual day was a Sunday night roast including a couple of potatoes and accordingly higher carb and fat than usual and just achieving a positive PE Ratio

16 August 2021

FBG 3.8
Carbs 95g
Fat 46g
Protein 158g
PE Ratio 1.12
Calories 1537
Weight 81.3kg (80.4 yesterday)
Body Fat 25% (26.1 yesterday)
Muscle 38.2% (37.6 yesterday)
Hydration 51.6% (50.8 yesterday)

Spent most of morning at hospital with wife for her specialist meetings and had two large coffees which pushed the carbs a little. Had the roast dinner with potatoes last night so FBG was surprising but may account for some of the additional weight? Didn't complete my usual walk but still chalked up 10,000 steps walking around the hospital
