Tyler - Week Two Results

Hi guys, my second week on the Slow-Carb Diet has produced an additional weight loss of 2 pounds. I've lost a total of 9 pounds so far, which puts me at an average of 4.5 pounds a week. I did have a couple of lapses this week. On Monday a friend invited Sophie and I over to his place for Indian food, a meal that naturally included rice (which I'm not supposed to have) and naan (another no-no). Then on Thursday Alex was in town and we went to lunch at Araya's together (yes it's very healthy food but, you know, more rice). This week I intend to hew a bit closer to what I'm supposed to be eating. I have tasty, tasty kidney beans in the slow cooker as I type. This week I will also be beginning the recommended exercise program. For the past two weeks I've been engaging in little to no deliberate exercise, mainly because I wanted to see what the diet would do on its own. Now I'm kickin' it up a notch. We'll see how the next two weeks go.

Oh, and to answer the question Mom asked - no, I don't get hungry on this diet. I think I'm actually feeling less hungry throughout the week because I'm eating breakfast. There are a few time during the week when, due to the vagaries of my schedule, I can't eat for 5.5-6 hours. I get hungry then, but I would regardless of what I ate.  


  1. Great progress! Does the program have exercise specifics or do you just do what you want? Love you! Mom

    PS: Is it getting close to finals for you?

  2. Wow, those are great results! I bet that feels good! How long are you planning on sticking to the diet? Is Sophie doing it with you?
