Diet week 2

My macronutrient averages for week 2 were:

fibre            16.1 g
carbohydrates    67.7 %
fat              14.7 %
protein          57.7 g
sodium         2170.5 mg
energy         1318.8 kcals

My average weight for week 2 was 107.8 kg, a decrease of 2.1 kg from the week before. I expect my rate of weight loss will now decrease to about 1.25-1.5 kg/wk due to caloric deficit. The first few weeks of a diet always have a bit of extra weight loss due to the decrease in total food volume being ingested (and hence fluid retention in the digestive system).

I did a little bit more walking last week, (averaging 1,653 steps/day) but still not nearly as active as I should be. I'll try to do at least 5,000 steps most days this week and some 5BX exercise each evening. I doesn't look like the Sydney lock-down will end soon, so I probably won't be able to go back to Kendo training until November or December. Haven't started doing any weight training at home yet, so that is still on my 'to do' list.
