Could Carbs Have Gotten Me Thicker?
I bought a bathroom scale that also measures your body fat. I only bought it because I want to measure my progress more accurately, when I feel better about my weight I will get my body fat tested under water. Anyway, the point is I had to take some measurements in order for it to tell me my body fat. One of which includes my waist. When I measure, my waist is now 39. I also weighed myself and weigh 209.
If you recall, I posted my weight on Friday, which was 200, I carbo-loaded that evening and all day Saturday. I figure I ate about 350 grams of carbs. A good chunk was also sugar carbs because it is my understanding that I want some to spill over to fat cells. I ate potatoes, cereal, low fat ice cream, spaghetti, bread, bread sticks and bagels. I may have eaten even more then 350 grams. Anyway, could my carbo-loading have given me a thicker waist? I know that I would weight more because that happens according to Lyle McDonald. What do you guys think?
My body fat by the way shows up as 23%.
Never mind, I just realized that I might have taken my first measurements incorrectly. My waist is 38, I thought it was 36 because of my belt but I was all mixed up. I guess I am not doing as well as I thought, but I will keep on working. As I mentioned before, even with my flab you can see some abs. I guess all is not lost then.
