Food & Exercise Diaries, Starch Solution

Day 17-18: October 1-2

Day 17/23

Seems like I’m gradually upping my intake–I’ve just been hungrier! Looks my metabolism might be ramping up, because my weight is still the same. 🙂

Maybe someday soon I’ll be able to eat 2500-3000 calories like RiceandRaw and NaturallyStefanie! (They’re my inspirations right now: they’re amazing hclf vegan youtubers who also lift weights)

Macros: 72% carbs, 15% protein, 13% fat

Exercise: walked 3 miles

Day 18/23

So I finally chose my protein powder as a last minute sort of thing despite all my former deliberation. It was because I needed some equipment for my honors thesis experiment and Amazon was giving me free one day shipping (which I needed) if I ordered at least $35 worth of stuff! I only had 2 minutes before the deal expired, and the only other thing I could think of was protein powder, so I just went with Vega Sport vanilla.

It is SO expensive though! I ended up choosing it largely because of the iron and calcium it has, and because it has lower fat and sodium than other brands I was looking at. But if I don’t fall in love or see any additional strength improvements, I’m going with a cheaper brand or just nixing protein powder altogether.
