Ketogenetic Agent

I geared up the workout and I have started cutting out sugar. 89.2. Here is Coleman's back.

Faciltating Ketogenesis...

I was 89.5 on Sat and Sunday and I woke up at 90 today. Not bad. I think it was that sumptuous lunch. I hope to close the week at 88.5.
Today I kicked rather than do squats.
The ankle is better and I hope by Friday I can declare I can start running next week.
What? Ketogenesis? Well, that is a synthesis that occurs in response to low glucose levels in the blood, and after exhaustion of cellular carbohydrate stores, such as glycogen. The production of ketone bodies is then initiated to make available energy that is stored as fatty acids. Ketone bodies are produced mainly in the mitochondria of liver cells. When I diet like I do, I am facilitating ketogenesis and ketones can be found in my urine upon urinalysis.
Tomorrow, I will start cutting out sugar to facilitate ketogenesis further. Al let u know how I do it.

One more thing...

Yesterday I met my day's goals. But in the evening, my wife presented me with Biriani and, well, I sorta went overboard. But not too bad. I made a note not to repeat the same mistake again.
I am getting in the mix of things as far as the workout.
Today I did 61situps 100 squats and 46 pushups.
And I learnt one more thing: dress warmly after working out, even if its just for a few minutes. It makes it easier to cool down after showering.
No wonder they call them sweatshirts.

Weight Loss Strategy in Action

I am now back to 90Kgs. That is 4 days of diet. I decided to declare war on my weight when I hit 91Kgs which was on Monday. I lost weight from 92Kgs to 76Kgs in 2008 and now, my critics say that ooooh, that was a long time ago and I cant do it again. Well, its time to show that this runner is also a weight-loss God. There are some essentials to my strategy:


1. Be ready to carry food. Er, and water too.
2. Water must be your friend.
3. Eat less, more.
4. Thou shall not starve yourself under any circumstances.
5. Leave the painful ankle the ef alone.
6. If you cant run, develop core strength and wait for the ankle to heal.
7. No negative caloric deficit, no weight loss. Plain and simple.

1. Take one glass of water upon waking up (this will fill the stomach and minimize breakfast taken).
2. Work out: 3 sets of situps, pushups and squats (left unattended are: compartment muscles, calves and hamstrings - which is not so bad). This is for increasing MR.
3. Split breakfast into four. (my breakfast is 3 slices of bread and tea). Take each quarter at the following times: 7.30am, 10.30am, 2pm and 4pm. Drink water in between whenever hungry.
4. Take one glass of water before dinner (same reason as above).
5. Eat decreasing amount of dinner but particularly minimize carbs and fat.

Lets see how it goes. So far, so efing good.

Fuck it. The War is On

My leg is not yet there. So I am not waiting anymore. My ankle can kiss my ass. I am weighing 91Kgs now.
The war is on and I begin weight-loss without running, TO-fuckin-DAY!
Lets go. Damnit.

Almost guys. Almost

I am almost there. Have been using open shoes for about two weeks now and they have helped test and heal the ankle. Maybe in just another week...
Meanwhile, I weigh in at a clean 90Kgs.
