You read that right. I lost 6 pounds in 24 hours.
If you’re not new to low carb diets, you already know that this isn’t earth shattering. In fact, you probably know exactly why I lost all that weight. If you’re new to low carb then you’re in for a treat.
I lost 6 pounds in 24 hours by following Carb Nite Solution all day yesterday.
Let me back up a little. So I’ve been following Carb Nite Solution religiously from October 19 through November 26 (pretty much until Thanksgiving dinner). During that time I went from 277 pounds to 242 pounds. That means I lost 35 pounds in 39 days.
One of the claims by Kiefer, the physicist author of Carb Nite Solution, is that this diet is a whole world different than a typical low carb diet because CNS works to ramp up your metabolism – basically hit the power button on your body’s metabolic enzymes, which is something typical low carb diets just can’t do. That means that even if you fall of the wagon through the holidays, which I definitely did, you won’t gain all the weight back immediately like you do when you come off low carb diets.
I now know that his claims are 100% true! So after Thanksgiving I had several Thanksgiving parties the next week and then pre-holiday parties the week after that. Throughout all the pigging out I’ve put on only 10 pounds – which is astonishing if you’re familiar with low carb dieting.
In fact, the last time I went low carb to lose weight (before I knew anything about Carb Nite Solution), I lost 30 pounds. It took 10 DAYS of high carb eating to put on 40 POUNDS. That’s 10 pounds over what I lost the previous 3 months of low carb dieting!
Now we’re back to today and I just stepped off the scale at 248. That’s only 3 pounds over my Pre-Thanksgiving.
There’s a scientific explanation for how I lost that much weight in 24 hours, but I’m going to go make my morning coffee now. I’ll explain what happened to the weight in my next entry.
I highly recommend Carb Nite Solution if you’re interested in doing a low carb diet and actually keeping the weight off. Thanks!
