Summary: Week 3 of 50 day plan

I managed to average even more than a 500 cal deficit for the week! I did a little bit less exercise than usual, but it was an especially busy week.

I also started to follow some of the ideas behind McDougall’s Starch Solution, which mostly involved reintroducing things like pasta and potatoes, while eating less fats. No complaints here ūüôā It feels like every night is a cheat meal! (I may have gone a little bit crazy with the homemade high carb low fat¬†pizzas out of initial excitement…)
