Reverse Diet Round 2

So, I've been saying for about 6 months now literally that I'm going to reverse diet, but to reverse diet, I truly believe in staying really dedicated to eating exactly what your macros are so that you can reap the benefits that it offers. No, I don't mean obsessively. I still very much go out to eat, and live flexibly but just making sure that I do hit my numbers which has not happened for a long long time. I either go over or under just because I'm either hungry or I'm not, and it's been an awesome place to be. But, I want to challenge myself again with the second series of this reverse. So, I hope you'll follow along: 

I didn't track any sort of intake but just ate as little as possible so I'd say it was around 800 calories/day. YIKES POOR ME. That's so depressing. How in the world?

Week 1 Stats: 155g P // 255g C // 65g F 

Weight: I truly don't know. We don't have a scale at the house and I really don't need one as I'm very familiar with the process (in my opinion). I just kinda go with how I'm feeling each week but I'm probably around 105 lbs.

Goals: My goal of this reverse diet is actually to put on a little bit of weight (in fat). I'm going to stick with 5g C/2g F increases. I am healthy, but I do take my training very seriously and I think that I might would avoid a little more aches and pains if I had a little more cushion for the pushin nom sayin ;) I would say my weight goal would be around 110-112 lbs. 

Everyone is like "WELL JUST EAT CRAP FOR AWHILE" and while that sounds all good in theory, I think it's fun to see how high I can get before I start to gain weight and then gain weight in a way that I can say "okay now I'm going to stop and make this my maintenance. Plus crap food makes you feel like crap so no thanks ;) 

Training: I'm in the heat of marathon training, but I also have tweeted my sartorias (self diagnosed). I've been laying low on running super high miles but today I'm running 8. I'll keep you posted each week on the training I do with the macros. My marathon is July 11th so just above 2 weeks out. I will obviously adjust nutrition going into that. I lift 3 times per week right now as well to maintain muscle.

I'm sure SOMEONE will tell me that I'm eating too little at 2200 calories, however I know my body and I know that I'm healthy as a horse and I add more calories on big workout days so let's just agree to disagree kapeesh? 

With love and reverse dieting,

Katie
