EDIT: Sorry, had the wrong numbers in for the peanuts, I have been eating a lot for sure and really don’t want to gain back more fat than muscle, but I did read that when you are gaining muscle, you naturally will gain some fat as well. I just don’t want too much. More “walking” is in my future and I’ve been using the excuse “it’s too cold out there”
This is why I “used” to suggest keeping a diary, but got away from it after a few weeks every time I tried it. I especially got serious about it when I was diagnosed with T2 Diabetes and wanted to do Keto.
Well, I’d gained from 110 (which I got doing strict meals on Keto, started at 140 lbs) to 116, weighed in this a.m. I know some of it’s muscle from starting at the gym 8-9 months, can’t recall the exact month I started that now, but some of it has got to be some fat as well.
Although, I’m wearing the same size clothing and same basic measurements. Feel stronger, lifting heavier now etc. but after logging my typical foods for a day, I’m thinking, well, I’m thinking holy cow. Think I should drop the peanuts, LOL! I’m addicted to that dang snack but need feedback on what ya’ll think about my numbers??
I just think using a food-diary is smart but only feel logging is only necessary if I have changed my amounts of my healthy macros:
