21 Days Later

So I’ve made it through 21 days of “clean” Paleo-ish Crossfit-eating!  Yay!  I’ve lost 13 lbs since my weigh-in on day 1.  I also measure about 2 inches less around my waist and 2 inches around my buttocks.  I feel great and I’m so glad I did it.

I had a few cheat meals and definitely noticed the change in water weight when carbs are cut or added back.  Read about why this happens here: Understanding Body Weight and Glycogen Depletion.  Although a good portion of initial weight loss is from water stored with glycogen, continuing on a healthy life path will lead to fat loss and muscle gain with time and dedication.
