Preparing for a Fuel Cycle Week
Saturday, February 27, 2016
Tomorrow, I'm doing a THM fuel cycle week with my daughter. I'm hoping to do it for a total of 2 weeks, which is the amount of time recommended on the THM plan.
The week consists of 3 days of Deep S - which is basically very low carb, high fat. No peanut butter, nuts, dairy or fruit allowed for 3 days. Then it's followed by 2 days of FP - low carb, low fat days. Calories are very low just for those 2 days. The final 2 days are E days. Those will be higher carb and low fat.
I'm hoping this will jumpstart my sluggish metabolism. I'm so thankful to have my daughter taking the journey with me. She's done Fuel Cycle weeks a couple of times with great results.
So after today, I'll be saying goodbye to my peanut butter for a couple of weeks.
Tomorrow morning, I'll face the music, step on the scale and break out the measuring tape. I'll probably grab my phone for a before picture as well.
I'll try to blog my experience. I'm hoping to blog each day, but time usually gets away from me. But I'll do my best.
I know this will work if I can just get my night time eating under control. I'm doing better, but still eating after bedtime.
