I noticed that my A1c (a measure of average blood sugar) has always been on the high side of normal. So I tried Jack Kruse's recommended giant low-carb high-protein breakfast, and removed all starches from my diet. I typically don't get hungry for lunch til 2-5 pm.

In 3 weeks I lost 4 lbs but my strength in the gym has been fine.

Almost too easy.

Typically:

An omelet with 4 pastured eggs, goat cheese, 2 grass-fed sausages, chopped onions and tomatoes.
"Bulletproof" coffee with Kerrygold butter and coconut oil.

I tried the bp coffee this morning, (well, I guess the ghetto version) k-cup, organic unsalted butter, and coconut oil. Along with 4 eggs and 3 slices of bacon.

I had great energy, and was in a better than typical mood. Things didn't seem to bother me as much as usual. Maybe placebo

What happens if you drink this stuff, but do not stay on a low carb diet? That's a lot of fat to be consuming. With my limited knowledge on how the body processes fuel. It prefers carbs. If there is an excess of fat while carbs are available, then the body stores the fat. This would appear to make your lunch choice very critical, and maybe dinner is not so bad.

i'm not necessarily trying to avoid carbs, but I seem to feel better with a higher protein/fat diet. I'm still hitting my target calories for the day.

From what I've read if you're Leptin/Insulin sensitive, you can tolerate some carbs and your body's "fat thermostat" will just reduce your appetite when you start gaining fat weight. However lots of carbs will start to affect your metabolism and your appetite will increase despite a caloric surplus.

So riddle me this. I gave up (diet) sodas etc. two weeks ago. Replaced with water. All I drink now is water, coffee (espresso, no sugar/cream and only in the mornings) and fresh squeezed OJ (weekends, every now and then) so mostly just water. At the same time I started riding my MTB around again and stopped having midnight snacks etc. I feel even more sluggish than before and have actually gained 4-5 lbs. No muscle as far as I can tell. I wasn't expecting to drop 30 pounds in two weeks, but gaining? Where's the motivation in that?

Not enough info. What's the rest of your diet look like?

Hmmm, usually a bowl of cereal in the morning, black coffee. 4-5 slices brown (not whole wheat/sunflower seed etc stuff) bread with whatever is in the fridge on top for lunch. Dinner is 6 times out of 10 meat, random veg and some potatoes. Rest is either pasta w/ homemade pesto or whatever else I feel like cooking. Does usually involve meat, low-fat cheese etc. Drink water throughout the day, having replaced all softdrinks (and it was a lot) with plain water. Seems better/healthier, scale and feeling say otherwise.

I would submit that trying to gauge the effect of diet soda vs. water while the rest of your diet has that much carby, inflammatory stuff is an exercise in frustration.

Water is healthier than diet soda, but any positive signal is being drowned out by all the unhealthy static from the rest of your diet.

Makes sense, other than that has been my diet for a while now. Weight was pretty steady before the water/cycling thing took over. There lies my frustration.

Jason and Mark - Are you guys using the actual BulletProof(TM) coffee or just regular black coffee with unsalted butter and coconut oil?

No TM, just homebrew. I do think good quality, recently roasted coffee is important to avoid the mycotoxins present in most coffee beans. And yes, unsalted, grass-fed butter and coconut oil. Never tried the MCT oil.

Trader Joes Italian Roast here. I should go find a local coffee shop that roasts their own excellent coffee.

I dont drink enough coffee to get away from the k-cups. I only have 1 per day, when I buy a pound of coffee its starts to taste bad before I'm halfway though. I can buy a 54 count box of k-cups and they taste the same through the whole box and the starbux medium roast ones actually seem to taste better than most coffee shops and 80% of the times you go to dunks. Its also way better than any time I've actually ever gone into star bucks.

So yesterday i bought foam pads that i use instead of gloves. Well they had 1/2" thick foam which i wanted to try. All i say is my forearms were burning after my work out. The giant grip really makes u squeeze hard.
