Weightloss update

I posted here a while ago at 92.5kg. Taking beta blockers. Had afib twice. Re-entry tachycardia. On meds to slow heart rate down. Otherwise i get extra beats that can lead to tachycardia which leads to afib.

Im living around 3.5km/2.1miles away from the next largest town.
I started to walk nearly daily to that town and sometimes walking even back.

I changed my diet to: 80g/2.8 OZ of dry rice that will make 230g-250g of cooked rice (depending on how much water and long i cook it).
100-150g of minced meat (3.5-5.2oz).
And scallions, onions, sometimes carrots and mushrooms and sauces like sriracha just to give it flavour. I also allowed by self a max. of 30g/1oz of cheese but i cut it out after a while.
No soda that contains sugar. No sweets beside super sour bubble gum. No alcohol.

Just doing that i got the following results:

5th dec: 92.5kg/203lbs
20th Dec: 89.5/197lbs
28th dec: 90.5/199lbs
9th jan: 86.8/191lbs

Between the 28th dec and 9th jan i only walked about 11km/6.8 miles.
I had a break of 8 days of no walking. I still kept losing weight for some reason.

    This is my cardio after 8 days of no walks.
    Looks like its dog shit again since its around 10bpm higher.

    That said i walk rather slowly (2miles in 40-50min) and im taking betablockers so the heart rate is suppressed. If im unlucky its 94-100, if im doing well its at 70-80.

    If i understood cardio correctly i need to keep by heart rate low. Lower means the heart is more efficient.

      Congrats on the progress dude!
      How far spaced were your two Afib episodes?

      Personally working out in Heart Zone 2 did wonders for my blood pressure and left ventricular hypertrophy.
      After 3 months of training and losing 16 lbs I had to cut my blood pressure medication in half.
      You should check with your cardiologist if you can workout a bit harder, even if it indeed sucks ass to do while taking beta-blockers.

      Keep up the good work, and don't neglect the psychological side of Afib. It's hard to regain confidence in your own body. It is a journey but in the end you'll end up in a better shape than you ever were

        First official Afib episode was around 1.5 years ago. Went to sleep in a hotel with my gf.
        She likes to sleep with blackout curtains. I dont. That time i used to wake up often in the middle of night believing that there is an intruder or not knowing where i am or who she is with elevated heart.

        So i suspect that i used to get tachycardia during my sleep but i cant say for sure.

        Woke up that night not knowing where i am, heart was fast around 120 but i think it was still sine rythm but i cant know for sure.
        That time i was taking bisoprolol only when i got re-entry tachycardia to slow it down. So in that night i had no meds in my bloodstream. Tachycardia never lasted longer than 15min and i was always successful in terminating it with the vegal maneuvers and chewing on bisoprolol.

        That night i didnt find the lightswtich and i was confused and I panicked and it went really fast and didnt stop and the ambulance took an ECG and it was afib.

        its possible i had afib during my sleep or it started with tachycardia and went into afib. Its not clear. I let my self out of the hospital because i refused to get cardioconverted via electric shock.
        Went home and slept. Woke up with sine rythm, went back to hospital to check if it was sine and it was.

        They gave me blood thinners i had to inject in my belly for a week and i started to take bisoprolol 2.5mg every day once.

          Second one was two weeks after i had covid this september. I hat 150/120BP which is weird because the upper number usually is higher but this time the lower was. Took BP meds but it didnt help and i went to the hospital, they tested me and i had covid.
          I had only 2 days of fever (39C) and i felt tired and weak but otherwise nothing. I did sweat a alot. Two weeks later i started to cough and i had the shits. Lost a ton of water and i foolishly thought that drinking tea and water would help. I think i lost all electrolytes.

          Woke up at 15:00 noon so i was 3 hours late taking my bisoprolol. That time i used to take 2.5 every day once.
          Had a weird heart beat, slow as fuck but irregular and lots of extrasystoles (extra beats). Walked to the toilet, it got faster and when i sat down it was at 150...160..180 etc
          Tried the vegal manuvers, nothing helped. Chewed on a total of 10mg of bisoprolol. Ambulance did an ECG it was afib and they also saw 3 vetricular something in a row that concered them so they brought me straigt to a heart hospital. Slept there. Because i ate they didnt do the electro shock convertion and i asked them to do the convertion via medication.
          They gave me 200mg of Flecainide. When it kicked in it felt like my heart was chocked to death. After taking it i waited in the hospital bed for 15hours, woke up and it was sine again.
          First Afib lasted around 12hours.

          I started taking 50mg Flecainide a day, eliquis blood thinners, 5mg ramipril and 5mg bisoprolol. That episode with covid made me have high blood pressure episodes again.

          I stopped taking Flecainide, eliquis because it made me dizzy, nauseous and Flecainide felt bad.

          Im now taking 2.5mg biso twice or three times a day. Usualy twice but if my heart goes faster i chew on one. Ramipril when i feel high BP due to stress, onions sauce or salt.

          Am getting an ablation in a few months, because i had re-entry tachycardia i first get that one and we see if my afib comes again or not.

            Anohter doctor suggested he can do the Afib ablation (cryo-ablation with those cryo bags) and the supraventricular tachycardia ablation in one session.

            You are dead right having tachycardia and afib shattered my trust in my own body and made me perhaps over medicate and i stopped all unnecesarry movements, i stopped all physical activity and my cardio got really bad.
            Im really paranoid and i usually try to keep my heart rate under 75 via meds.
            Sometimes i take more meds when my heart rate is in the 80s because it feels uncomfortably fast. Also im super aware of my heart beat because i can often feel it in my throat and i never felt that before all this crap started.

            Goal is to get to 75-70kg weight. Get the ablations done and hopefully stop taking betablockers, get my cardio to a level where i can walk up stairs or run without getting an uncontrollably fast heart rate and perhaps even build some muscle.

      Heart has a loop somewhere. Electrical signal goes down all the way to the tip of the heart like normal and returns back up again. Instead of going all the way up it takes a turn in that loop, swings around and goes back down to the tip of the heart. What happens is that the electrical signals start looping and the heart starts going very fast all the sudden: 130-150bmp.

      That heart racing can cause afib where the top part of the heart starts having spasms and heartrate goes up to 180-190bpm.

      Upper and lower heart chamber stop beating synchronized and the blood stops getting pumped out correctly. You get weak and dizzy and blood cloths can form if that blood is not pumped out. That can lead to a stroke.

      That afib last part happened to me twice. Both times for around 15hours. Heart was slowed down in hospital to around 105-130 (fluctuating) so at least it wasnt at 190 any longer but it sucked ass.

      All this crap triggered by extra beats / that loop thing i explained. Thats why i have to artificially keep my heart rate low with medication. Also taking blood preassure meds because i sometimes get high blood pressure attacks (salt, onions sauce or stress) and it shoots up to 150-160/95-100. had 180/100 a few times before i was taking meds and i would get cramps, shaking etc.

      It sucks ass to loose weight or work out when you take beta blockers.

    I am just eating as little as I possibly can.
    I sleep as much as I can.
    I drink water as much as I can.
    not lifting or anything like that. just these 3 things.
    I went from 108 to 95 today in less than 2 months.
    I will start working out when I reach 85kgs.
    Today, I plan to eat 3 avocados, 1 tomato, 1 onion (making guacamole) and 2 clementimes. then sleep until next day where I'll probably just eat 5 boiled eggs

      Well done dude. My plan was to start working out when im super skinny, at around 70kg.

      What do you eat your guacamole with?

      I had 3 cheat days so far: one was a napolitan pizza, had a few bread slices another day with pate and tuna-mayo and one day i had 4 potatoes with a sausauge. But that was on days where i walked 6km that day.

      I avoid carbs besides my rice. But i noticed i get low blood sugar moments that i have to bridge. Low blood sugar is the main reason i want to stuff my self with food.

        thx bro
        >What do you eat your guacamole with?
        nothing 🙂 just by itself with a spoon.

        I have done something similar before as an experiment. Once you get used to it(sounds like you are) it's not bad, but holy shit I remember feeling WEAK. Everything was hard, well, besides my dick and sleeping.
        Godspeed anon. The muscle and libido come back when you are done cutting fast.

        thx bro. Yes I feel weak as well. but I know it will come back fast 🙂

      I can also recommand japanese goma (sesame) dressing. It makes any salat amazing. Also cucumber, totamotes and pumpkinseed oil is a really deadly combination.

      Besides pizza i honestly never beem eating so well as now when i reduced my food intake.

        I have just been rolling fasts with cardio on fasted days and weightlifting on refeeds. Did it for 3 weeks and got down to around 88/87 and then was sick with 2 back to back colds and the flu (I work at a hospital). Now I’ve started again this week after dropping off before in early December. Sometimes I eat shittons on my refeeds, sometimes very little. I don’t really track it.
