These weeks have gone by pretty fast. I’m still seeing pretty good progress overall, but it has certainly slowed down from the initial honeymoon period that this diet always provides. My body seems to have fully adjusted and my energy levels are more or less back to normal. When shifting in and out of ketosis each week, I notice changes in my overall energy, but they aren’t enough to affect me. I’m still really enjoying the weekend carb-up periods and actually ate a Domino’s pizza for the first time in years last weekend. Whatever that company did to fix their pizza is awesome because it was delicious. Mentally, it still feels strange allowing myself to eat so many carbs each weekend, but it works amazingly well so I’m just enjoying it while I can. The real key is hitting the gym really hard on Monday morning to deplete all that muscle glycogen that just got stored. Fortunately, this is pretty easy to do after all the carbs.
