    I dread the carb day. I don't enjoy it, don't know what to eat, and always feel terrible for 3-4 days afterwards. This time I'm just going to carb up on vegetables and fruits only, no potatoes or rice or anything overly starchy, I just can't stand the draggy feeling afterwards.

    Go back to my photo-diary and see what else I had yesterday. It was no fatty meat and mostly fruit and vegetables. Keep your calories no higher than your daily target. But that won't be hard to do with eating mostly vegetables and fresh fruit.

I didn't give in and it stopped today, but it would seem that I too am a carb grazer. Something I'll have to keep an eye on.

    Yep. For some people it triggers a binge or an all day graze and for some people it just makes them feel sluggish where other people feel great. This is an N=1, YMMV and all that stuff. It doesn't do anythign horrible to me but I don't feel any benefit from it either so I figure why bother?

    Day 1 in the books. Super easy. 2 meals, about 14oz London broil and 4eggs. Took my normal 2 hour Krav maga training session (1 hour tech and 1 hour conditioning) threw around a 60lb kettlebell for a bit (swings,snatches, clean+press) feeling good this morning.

    My wife, about 8oz and 3eggs at lunch. She was not feeling hungry @ all after Krav, but she managed to get down about 6oz and 2 eggs with a little effort. She loves it, not being hungry as steak really satisfies her for a long time.

    That's bodybuilding.com levels of protein The bros there, and indeed many on /r/leangains and /r/fitness insist that if you don't get 3 g protein per kg bodyweight your muscles will fall off.

    If you don't mind me asking, I have a personal question: how have things been coming out the other end? With no carbohydrate and no fiber, things are bound to come screeching to a halt. Feel free to not answer though. Some topics are probably left off-limits.

    Eating 1 meal I came in somewhat under calories yesterday: 1250. But I was way under on the protein, only 73 grams of protein due to the fact that I ate 75% fat. I think I will eat 2 meals with smaller portions of meat than before. And ribeye only once a day. I need to keep my average calorie intake around 1800 for maintenance.
