It wasn’t an arm…

182 pounds. Monster loss over the last day. I allow a pound or so deviation due to water weight variances, so 2 1/2 pounds is probably not totally accurate, but I do expect to lose 1 1/2 pounds on average per day.

Yesterday I didn’t any carbs until dinner, just meat and buttered coffee. But then at dinner I had cheese pizza. I know. I know I should have just had a fatty steak or something for dinner like I planned, to encourage some ketosis action, but I think this Coke experiment weakened my will to resist temptation somehow. Must work harder.

Today, just eggs scrambled with butter, coconut oil, and olive oil. (They were oily.)

One of the questions I’ve been getting is Why doesn’t the 1400 extra calories add up to the weight gained?

Answer: The high amount of sugar causes your body to store calories from ALL the food you eat. With less sugar, I had a lower insulin level, and my fat cells didn’t store much fat from the available diet. With more sugar, and a higher insulin level, my fat cells are cued to store fat, and you’re off to the races. Sure, the sugar contributes some calories, too, but the main part is all the other food you subsequently eat.
