As we mentioned late last week, the scales of judgement were out on Saturday – the official weigh-in for Qannik (trying to lose weight) and Typhoon (trying to gain weight). Are you ready for the results?
Qannik had reached a peak of 64.9 pounds (29.4 kg) back in December, significantly over his historical weight of 55 lbs (25 kg). Thanks to the green bean diet (adding green beans to replace some bulk of his food), Q has broken the 60lb barrier and weighed in at 59.7 lbs (27.1 kg). A terrific result, but he will stay on the green bean diet as we continue to work toward his historical weight.
In continued good news, Typhoon has hit a record weight – 42.9 lbs (19.5 kg), significantly better than his 40.3 lb (18.3 kg) back in January. He continues to be an incredibly finicky eater, but we have hit on a fairly good combination of food at the moment to keep him eating every meal. Our goal is to move slow and steady adding only muscle weight to his body. Unlike Qannik, we don’t have a numerical goal in mind for him as much as just a consistent and predictable appetite.
Meanwhile, Qannik continues to offer to trade diet plans with Typhoon.
