Midweek update

So Monday morning my weight was 207 lbs up only .4 lbs from the previous Monday. Not sure why my Saturday weight was so high at 210 lbs, it must have been a spike. In any event Layne has increased my carbs by 5g and fat by 1g for this week. So this will make my macros P 294.5 grams … Read More
