"Amazon Go" Market Will Let You Walk In, Walk Out Without Having to Pay Cashier... Somehow | Main | White Reactionary Declares a Boycott Against Progressive Bastions!
December 05, 2016


Still making slow gains. Weight has stabilized at 176, which is kind of my college-era-while-in-semi-decent-shape weight.

The weight is stuck there, but I'm definitely adding muscle. So I think it's the case that overall weight is remaining in that range while fat reduces and muscle GAINZZZ.

I want a way to track this, to prove it to myself, but electric impedance body composition monitors (like those found in many electronic scales) are laughably inaccurate.

So I'm attempting to measure it using bodyfat calipers (supposedly more accurate if you can manage to take the measurement the same way every single time) and then plugging the numbers into this calculator.

I just bought spring loaded calipers because the cheap plastic ones I was using would give me wildly different results depending on how much I squeezed it. I hope the spring-loaded Sequoia caliper that's on the way will give me a consistent amount of squeeze (and thus more reliable, consistent numbers). It's like $12.50 on Amazon.

So, basically, back into ketosis, making GAINZZZ according to the eye but I have no measurement to prove that yet. (As I just started using calipers, I have no previous numbers to compare to, and the numbers are wildly different from the ones given to me by the is-this-a-joke body impedance weight scale).

Sticking with it. At something like month six, which is a pretty good duration. Actual fat loss is slower now but still seems to be progressing, at least according to hip and waist measurements.

Here's a claim made about ketosis: it's good for your brain function, improves clarity, and seems to reduce the risk of degenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer's. This guy review's Dr. David Perlmutter's Grain Brain, a book that makes the case that the high carb Standard American Diet is a disaster for the brain.

This Buff Dude talks up his personal belief in the cognitive benefits of a ketogenic diet.

(I seem to be watching a lot of videos featuring Buff Dudes lately. I need to look into that.)

So: What are your GAINZZZ? Or, considering you're just coming off of the Thanksgiving day weight gain, what are your RE-GAINZZZ or MAINTAINANCEZZZ?
