Mutant Diet Phase 4 Day 30
Today is the last day of Phase 4. Tomorrow I write the final entry. Friday I go get my hernia repaired. Yikes.

If I review this past phase, I can say that I finally budged the scale in the right direction, but not by much. However, given how reluctant my body is to give up a single gram, this is still a win. If you look at the chart below you can see how the swinging of pounds, pounds of water and % body fat make no sense at all. What did make sense was that my belt size and belt overhang reduced, which finally was reflected on the scale.

There was also a change during the super strict refined carbohydrate reduction periods. It took from July until now (mind you) for the carbohydrate cravings not to be so stupidly intense. I noticed in the past couple of weeks that the intensity dropped under the same conditions.

This prepares me for Phase 5 (date to be determined) where I’m going to eliminate coffee, chicken and beef and see if I can modulate my immune response to foods. These are documented allergens or intolerances for me.

I’ve seen faster banana slugs.
