I didn’t feel fatigued or hungry at all at the gym despite not having any carbs for the last 70 hours. I added my workout improvement because I wanted to emphasize that this diet did not effect my workout gains. I wonder if the workout accelerated my fat loss at all. Will I even be able to measure it if I’m gaining muscle weight?

I got hungry around 2 (which is weird because the last time I was hungry was 2 hours prior  Did my body satiate itself with my own body fat?) so I put 10 strips in the oven. But the hunger was overwhelming (probably due to the workout) so I put 5 strips in the microwave for some quick crispy strips while I waited for the fatty strips to finish. It was probably a good thing because I suppose I got some extra protein in me that way. Still, 5 min is too long to wait for a snack (I know, I’m lazy) so maybe I should make a bunch of crispy bacon in a batch and cut it up so that I have some “chips” to eat to tide me over.

Man, am I missing other food. I mean bacon is delicious and all but variety is way better. Initially, when I started this, I thought I would continue with the diet if I saw positive result but I don’t think I could handle it psychologically, to be honest. But the diet is near the half way point and it looks like I’m going to hit my “best case scenario” 5 lbs lost any day now. All is good.
