I've started today, and am tracking certain data via table which I will post every week or so. The table tracks my calories, macros, weight, 3 measurements (2x waist & hips), dietary intake, and the type of oil I take.
I am female, 48yrs, 5-10" & sitting at 154lbs. I would like to be around 145lbs, which I was prior to Christmas. :-( Since starting Crossfit, I've been eating like a deamon, and I have put on weight, mostly around my belly.
I've been ingesting MCT oil for months every morning and haven't had any ill effects, so will continue with that. Here is the basic layout of my plan:
Breakfast: 7am: Bullet Coffee x 2 (with 35% cream)
MCT Oil: 1 TBSP @ 9am (one hour after Bullet Coffee)
Lunch: 12Noon: 4ozs chicken breast on mixed green salad (I have the same every day)
Walnut Oil: 1 TBSP @ 1:30pm (Not taking MCT because others on the forum have indicated not sleeping well with MCT)
Dinner: 1 potato (thanks to Otzi), 4-6 ozs lean meat + 3 assorted cooked veggies.
***** The above portions equal about 1200 calories per day for my non workout days. On my crossfit, lifting days, I will increase potatoes and protein to approx 1 lb of each + veggies. I cross fit 2-3 days per week.
Habitually, I have never been a snacker, so the emotional challenges of snacking don't exist for me. My goal is to lose about 6 lbs of fat, and to gain muscle through lifting. The ultimate goal is to get fit with a firm body.
I'll check in every day or two with results. Great sharing information on this forum -- I've learned so much from each of you.

Start Date: 25-06-12 @ 161lbs
Goal Reached: 30-09-12 @ 143lb. Now bouncing between 145lb - 149lb. I'd like less bounce and more consistency :-)
