Day 15 Tips

  • Congratulations! You’ve completed two weeks of your three-week challenge! Because of your low-carb/high-fat diet, your body is becoming more efficient at using fat as energy.
  • It Makes Sense to Use Fat as Fuel! Did you know that your body can only store a few days’ worth of sugar, but it has many weeks of energy stored in body fat? There are roughly 2,000 calories of sugar (glycogen) stored in the body, but there are more than100,000 calories stored in fat (Eberle).
  • Tomorrow’s Challenge Menu includes some recipes that can be made ahead of time. If tomorrow’s schedule is busy, consider making the Sausage & Sauerkraut Casserole and Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs tonight!
