Paleo Diet - Day 351

This morning, my weight remains stable at 160 lbs, thus my BMI (Body Mass Index) also remains stable at 21.7 (normal weight). As for my body fat percentage, it has fallen to 11.2% from last week's 11.8% (which was down from 12.1% the week before), so it looks like I have new fat loss while maintaining my body weight. That's a good thing, as it generally indicates an increase in muscle mass.

Meanwhile, I had another one of those non-paleo meals for dinner last night (Sonic again - double cheeseburger, fries and rootbeer), so my blood sugar must have spiked a bit, as I found it still at 104 ml/dcl this morning. Still within normal territory, though, and it'll decline later on.

Where my blood pressure is concerned, there are mixed results this morning with a reading of 105/82. Just fine on the systolic side, but edging toward the "high-normal" on the diastolic side. Still in the normal range, though, and this may also be a response to last night's indulgence at Sonic. As for that, I really have no excuse, other than that it was getting late and I didn't feel like cooking - and I was hungry. As long it doesn't become a regular occurrence, I'm fine.

Just another reminder, especially for any new readers, that I will be discontinuing my updates of this blog, effective November 2nd (the one-year anniversary of my paleo diet experience), but that the blog will continue to remain here so people can benefit from it. Again, if you're new here, the first few articles will give you lots of great information and advice, whether you're planning on going paleo or not.
