6 Months Down

Ok, I have been following a LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) diet plan for the past 6 months and so far have lost roughly 30 pounds, my Blood Glucose (blood Sugar level) has normalized to an average of 94ish and still don’t need to take any prescribed medications for my Type 2 Diabetes!!!!

The majority of my weight loss occurred in the first 3 months, some might call this a stall since I haven’t lost anything for the remaining 3 months. I believe you lose what you need too and the body will self regulate based on activity levels. I work out three days a week doing a workout of compound movements called Strong Lifts 5×5. (link below) This has caused some recompositioning of muscle and body fat. I know this because my pants have gone down from a 38 to a 34 inch waist.

My Body Mass Index went from 30 to 21 which I had checked by a few different techniques, one being a Dexa Body Scan (link below) and a hand held device at my local 24hr. Fitness where I work out. My weight stayed at 190 yet my fat shrank and my muscle grew. I look smaller yet more muscular than I have ever in my life!

Here are a few pics of me before with one of my dogs Rex, and the second was this past weekend hiking.
