Another diet milestone

I love milestone reports.

Today (MyFitnessPal streak day 2,678) I have gone under 190 lb and am now 189.6 lb = exactly 86 kg.

I’ve lost a total of 43 kg = 94.8 lb. Of that, 25.4 kg = 56 lb has been since recommitting to WFPB (whole food plant based) eating last September after reading Dr. Greger’s, “How Not To Die.”

According to BMI charts, to reach a “standard, non-overweight” weight I just need to lose another 10.6 kg = 23 lb.

I’m a bit skeptical, because my stomach is still pretty noticeable, but we shall see what another 10.6 kg weight loss brings.

My weight loss rate is pretty slow. I’m aiming for just 0.4 kg = 0.88 lb/week to take it nice and easy, without feeling deprived, or resorting to things like intermittent fasting. So I probably will not make that goal by the end of the year. But it seems within sight now!

  1. Congratulations!

    It’s amazing. I also wanna point out that I enjoy watching for your updates. Since my long-term goal is also to lose my weight, I am very happy to read when you reach a milestone. Why? Even though I have not been losing weight lately, that’s my goal, and I can cheer you on knowing that I too will go that path way.

    For two weeks, I have been trying to follow the effect of time of day on insulin effect. Which means that I have been making myself wake up earlier, and eat my largest meals in the morning, and taper smaller amounts to the afternoon and nothing in the evening. I have read that insulin is most effective early in the day, and least effective in the evening. And this is with the exact same food.

    I have been doing barefoot running, most often with Vibram shoes, for quite some time now. I really recommend that you look into it. It takes eight weeks to build up the connective tissue, ligaments and tendons in our feet, before a person can actually do a long distance run outside. It was actually three days ago now that I finally got a runners high during a run near the river. I have been following heart rate training. Based on my age I was choosing to have a maximum heart rate of 140 bpm. But, I decided to up that to 140-146 bpm and that’s where my runners high came in.

    Check out the Tatahumara indians in Mexico. By landing on the balls of their feet, they can run huge distances without ever getting injured. Also they continue to run in their 80s and 90s.
