The number isn't getting smaller!

Last Friday I was at a friend's. My girlfriend and I cleared a bottle of bourbon. Whiskey isn't exactly anti-keto... allegedly it burns off pretty fast and then as soon as your liver is done filtering it out, you're back in ketosis. However, the White Castle we ate at 2-3 AM? That was not good for my diet. Weight loss kinda stalled over the weekend.

Since then I've been keeping it as close to no-carb as possible. Yesterday I slipped a little by making a tomato heavy bread-less chicken parm. I had about 40 grams of carbs all told. My goal is to stay under 20. Oops.

The other change in my diet: I've run out of cheese. That was my primary source of fat. Looking over my macros, I'm very protein heavy, low on carbs, and .... a bit lower on fat than I was the first several days.

Today I stepped on the scale and saw my first weight gain of the year.

My digestive system is still... weird. The fiber supplements are doing something, but I don't think the output is in line with the input yet. I'm going to rejigger my diet as much as I can, but it'll probably be Wednesday before I get more cheese in the house. Probably Friday for more fatty meats (I still have a freezer full of lean steaks to clear out). I'm not stoked about my chances this week, and I'm very tempted to scratch this week off and get a pizza. I will do my damnedest to avoid giving in.

Update: I just confirmed I am out of ketosis, or at least it's been set back a ways. I'll have to get back to it asap.
