  • Great input from everyone...Thanks!

    Day 5 - Just got back from my intervals at the track - 10 X 100 meters. Very hot - 90 degrees! But felt suprisingly good, did the last 2 on the turf barefooted. Something very primal about running all out bare foot and shirtless.

    Started the morning at the gym doing the same Shoulders and Arms routine I outlined on Tuesday. Was able to move up some on the weights, so progress is being made.

    I haven't weighed myself since Monday, but I think I'll hop on the scales in the morning just to get an update. Not really looking to loose weight as I had already reached my target, just hoping to put on a few pounds of muscle and drop some body fat. I think I'm looking better in the mirror but its hard to tell and its only been a week. I thought I would feel more fatigued, but I must be fat adapted as my energy levels have remained very consistent considering the lack of carbs. However I sure am looking forward to the carb refeed on Sunday!

    Meal 1 - New York Strip and 6 fried eggs cooked in butter with lots of Himalayan salt.

    Meal 2 - Coming up! Nice big T-Bone and the usual 6 free range organic eggs in Kerrygold butter. I think I'll add some shallots and jalapenos Yum!!

    • 3 egg yolk folded omelet, 13oz ribeye for supper. Man, that feels good in my stomach. I ate a light lunch earlier this morning than usual, so was really hungry tonight.

      I might be eating too much, but it tastes really good, and I'm getting stronger. One of these days I'm going to do a chinup...

          Are you using the new smartphone app? I've had the same issue. And it only lets you modify your posts, not delete them. I've had to go to the forum through the web browser to delete my duplicates.

            Actually no, just the computer. Today is the first day it's been double posting without any sign something odd was going to happen, or had happened.

            • Wow, I cannot believe my energy.... This is almost ridiculous. I feel like superman, At most given moments I can strap on my shoes and go for a huge run, that is not normal for me. Around my jawline, I am getting much more defined. Body fat is dropping most definitely. I have older married women at work complimenting me on my body, saying I look "different", but very good.

              On top of that, food is a non-issue now. As a vegetarian, I was eating all day long bouncing my sugar around, and feeling sick if I didnt have a banana at work. And my energy was SAPPED after 8 hours. Now I can go all day without food, and I feel better!

              I have family members who are worried for my health, some of them medical professionals who are saying that I am risking organ failure, and how carbs are necessary to "live". I told them that I will listen to my body and respond accordingly. I just cannot convince them, so the answer is to blow them away with results.

              • 0530 - coffee with cream
                1100 - 12 oz steak and 5 boiled eggs
                1930 - 8 oz ground beef and 4 eggs scrambled in it
                Bowflex arms and shoulders workout
                Ran "sort of" sprints in the yard with the new puppy (how sad. HA!)
                Still feeling great and plenty of energy. Carb up tomorrow for me. Thinking about big salad for lunch and rice and salmon for dinner. OH! Went down ANOTHER belt hole today! Will be interesting to see if I balloon back up after the refeed.

                  Loaded with energy here, too.

                  My family members live a couple thousand miles away. When I go visit next summer, they won't recognize me.

                    You might regain some water but it will quickly go and you will resume you fat loss quickly over the next couple of days.

                      Ha Ha...That's great! Actually come to think of it I have younger married women complimenting me about my body. Of course what you think is older is probably younger than me

                      • Stocked up on steak and eggs, but at a discount! I went for rump steak, as it's a cheaper cut with a nice strip of fat along the edge, but still nice and tender. Any cheaper cuts would move into the slow cook/stewing arena, which I may progress to later for variety.

                        12 large free range eggs @ 5.70, which is what I normally pay for 10 small/med eggs. 60 plus eggs currently in the stockpile :-D

                          • Yesterday I had this lovely meal for meal 1:



                            For meal 2, I didn't make any new food, as I wasn't actually hungry, but I felt I might get too hungry without food so I ate two more slices of the meat cold. The eggs are made with eggs, butter and the juice from the meat!

                            My weight is down 2.2kg (~5lbs), and my waist at belly button is down 2cm (a bit less than an inch).
                            Circumstances mean that today will be steak and egg for only meal 1, and then back on steak and egg on monday.

                              • Bench press workout:
                                57.5kg x 5
                                67.5kg x 3
                                75.0kg x 3

                                Incline bench press:
                                40kg x 5
                                45kg x 5
                                50kg x 5

                                Pullups:
                                9, 6, 5, 4, 4

                                Weighted dips
                                3.5kg x 5 for three sets

                                DB Rows:
                                32.5kg x 10 for three sets.

                                I was using unfamiliar equipment on the bench, so I think I may have had one or two reps in me under normal circumstances. But I was using a squat rack and a random unattached bench, so it wasn't quite as stable as the usual bench rack where it all is connected.

                                Now it's time for some steak and eggs!
