Partridge Street General Practice is all about Health not sickness, so I’m taking a week off for some rest and relaxation! I’ll be running the 10km Dolphin Run on my break while the rest of our Team will be here to Help You. Let’s see how #LCHF and #running go together! 🍳⚡️🏃

Put up or shut up is a common call these days. We also ask people to put their money where their mouths are. Surely if it doesn’t work for them or they can’t show that it works, we shouldn’t do as they ask us to do. Putting my money where my mouth was in the past led to a lot of eating!
Let’s look at where I’ve come from here. This shows a weight of 96.7kg just after Christmas 2015. It also shows a DEXA scan previous to that (weight 93kg). Let’s see some exercise evidence before we get to the new scan!
Luckily, no pictures exist of my time in the gym over the weekend. The interest may not be ready for the language I used upon meeting the heavy weights for the first time in a while. Even using the magic word – ‘bro’ – didn’t help. Enough stalling, where’s the July 2016 DEXA and weight?
That is 13kg down from Christmas 2015, with nearly half a kilo less visceral fat (fat that accumulates around the abdominal organs – important in the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes). This is with exercise and yes, a lot of the weight loss predates a formal ultra low carb diet, but I’m very heartened by these results. Let’s see how the next few weeks go!
Thanks to Adelaide Bodyscan for the DEXA imaging – feel free to head over there and see how you measure up (tell them I sent you!). If you liked this, check some previous #LCHF posts out here:
