!5 weeks in happy to lose over a a kilo this week. Hit my short-term goal of breaking 80 kg. It took 9 weeks on this diet to lose that last 5kg. my new goal now is 74.8kg (top of normal BMI range). Great result in a stressful week but was my most interesting week with carbs having included white rice, pasta and toast in different days during the week for the first time this year while still maintaining a positive PE Ratio with the highest daily carbs being 137g and no negative impact on FBG. Would be fascinated to see how this diet would impact someone with higher BG levels.

Taken a couple of days off on daily update but will resume tomorrow. Had a few days of the black dog biting at my heels but back on board now. Feel the energy levels of the diet and improved fitness have me dealing much better with my depression when it surfaces.
