Stuck..could Bacon be the problem?? Help!
recently i made a post about when i stopped drinking coffee, the pounds started falling off. that was in the beginning of july, and since then nothing has changed in terms of the coffe drinking and following the diet. ive stuck to it firmly, along with my workouts 5 days a week. but these past few weigh in days (i also measure), my weight had gone BACK to 144.4. thats the weight i was stuck at before i stopped drinking coffee. i got down to 141 (only 3 lbs, but im pretty slim so 3 lbs is a lot for me). i also use a handheld body fat calculator that has stayed pretty consistent to track my fat %. if my weight goes up, my body fat % goes up so i dont know how accurate it is, because i could just be gaining muscle and that could be the weight gain, but i really dont knkw since the body fat calculator shows an increase in body fat % whenever i gain anything. i started eating bacon with breakfast and sometimes as a snack (4 or 5 pieces). could that be the reason for the gain? theres no sugar in it, and no other ingredienets that arent allowed. im just so tired of seeing144.4 on the scale and the measurements not budging. anyone have any idea why i keep going back to this annoying weight???
The Best Answer
Could be….I love bacon as well so what I do is make a 2-egg omelete with extra egg white filled with black beans, tomato, green onion, mushroom and I cut 1 slice of bacon into half-inch pieces a fry and add to filling.
All you really need to have the bacon flavor.
There’s a lot of sodium in bacon and that could possibly lead to problems.
Perhaps try 50% less sodium bacon and for a snack have a tablespoons of peanut butter or some almonds instead of bacon.. save the bacon for breakfast.
Drink more than usual amounts of water for you.
Sorry you’re stuck. I’m in a similar boat this week. I weigh one thing at night, and 3 lbs heavier in the morning. Then it goes back down again.
anyhow, yeah, it’s probably the bacon. I’ve had trouble with high-fat proteins. For those, you want to stick with very high quality expensive meats. try substituting with chicken or a non-insullinogenic powder like rice protein.
I also keep trying to tell myself to only focus on the weekly waist measurement, and not worry about the scale fluctuations. easier said than done…
