This week makes 15 weeks on a low carb diet. This is the longest I have been able to stay on a diet since I got back into powerlifting. My bodyweight this morning was 231.5lbs. That makes 20.5lbs I have lost on the diet. I have also lost 5 inches off my waist. My bodyfat percent has decreased from 25% to 19.22%.
I had blood work done recently and my hemoglobin A1c was 5.6% down from 6.5%. The recommendation for diabetics is less than 7%. This is within normal range even for people without diabetes. My fasting blood glucose was 106 mg/dL down from 167 mg/dL. My health is really improving and I am strongly considering losing more weight. The leaner I can get the better I can control my diabetes and the better my testosterone levels should be.
