This week we can look at exactly what happens when you are on a low-carb diet and you “fall off the wagon” – or in other words, you accidentally eat a bunch of carbs. In one week we can see the weight GAIN that comes from “falling off the wagon”, and then the weight LOSS that immediately occurs once I got back on the wagon.
The weight changes are crazy this week – I gained 5.7 pounds this week by falling off the wagon, and then lost 7.5 pounds when I got back on track – all in one week! It is a direct cause-and-effect relationship. When I eat right, I lose weight. When I fall off the wagon and eat too much, I gain weight. With my body in its current state, the changes reflect immediately with each morning weigh-in.
In this video we can see how beneficial it is to keep a food diary, because what happens can be directly predicted from what I eat and record in the diary.
