    Oh it's ON! HA!

    I will be using the PBF movements and will be doing some on the Bowflex as well as upping my walking and MAYBE try to get the fat rolling into a sprint sometime (should be funny to see! HA).

    Took weight and measurements this morning and will post progress here also. Can't wait to see how we all do!

    Thanks for starting this thread!

    Ok everyone, like EKatherine, I've loaded up the fridge and sharpened my knives. Looking forward to hearing all your personal experiences! I'll do my first post tomorrow evening after dinner here on the West coast.

    It's on! This AM is my first steak and eggs meal. About .75 pound of steak and six eggs.

    For body comp changes, I'll get a photo and use the silly machine at the pharmacy to watch for trends in BF%, though my hydration is sure to be a little odd.

    Exercise will be slightly unconventional, I'll be doing push-up/chip-up or pull-up/curl or squat with weight circuits to failure every two or three days as tolerated.

    Some things I'll be taking in addition to steak and eggs, because I lose lytes fast and get cramps, include magnesium citrate, potassium, and vitamin D. Water and coffee, check! And carb up days will be very fruity and berry-full. Other meats I will be eating in place of steak include chicken heart, beef liver, bacon and ground beef. This is week 1. I may switch to all-steak next week, but I already have all these foods to eat!

    EDIT: I'll start my own thread, but this is for sh!ts and giggles. I'm perfectly happy at 18% body fat and feel great. I do this knowing the effects are temporary, the nutrition is imperfect, and I'll likely gain back up to 18% a month after this is done. And I'm okay with that. I just need a good excuse to eat a lot of steak and eggs.

    Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.

    I did a bunch of shoulder, arm, and assistance exercises I haven't done in ages, then went out and ran a 10:47 mile.
    Later: handstand walking against a wall.

    My boyfriend and I think my body fat is currently around 22%, based on those charts of comparison photos. I don't have any way of measuring that reliably, so my goal is to lose inches around the waist and hips. Though I wouldn't mind seeing myself at 18% or even 15%.

    My present measurements:
    Waist: 27.5"
    Hips: 36"

    According to the Venus Index, my ideal waist measurement is 24.5" and hip measurement is 34.5". So sure. Why not?

    Lunch: 8 ounces jellied roast tri-tip, 4 egg yolks, scrambled, 1.5 tablespoons butter.
    Supper: 9 ounces jellied roast tri-tip, 5 egg yolks, scrambled, 1.5 tablespoons butter.
