Wow Fynn fantastic results, congrats! 16 lbs. in 30 days is remarkable and your measurement changes are outstanding. Very motivating for many people I am sure.
If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.
I hate to be a downer but I'm out. The wife decided that this was not fun (it really affected her mood and energy levels) and if she ain't happy, I ain't happy, so I am officially off steak and eggs. I know that we could eat separate diets, and I could continue S&E, but that requires extra time that I don't have to spend in the kitchen.
On a side note, I received Starting Strength Vol. 3 on Friday and I've been tearing through it. I've gained a lot of confidence practicing my squat form at home, so this week I am going to finally start Lifting Heavy Things at the gym. I am going to be eating a ton of food trying to put on some size (currently a wraithish 6'2"ish 160lbs), so I'll be back to this thread in the future to cut down the inevitable fat gain.
Anyway, it sucks to flake out. Keep up the good work!
The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.
Trying to add IF and calorie cycling into this week's S&E challenge. Will report on results.
S&E is infinitely easier week 3 than it was week 1....no more fatigue for eggs and very little straying outside of beef/lamb and eggs territory.
I'm not sure if S&E is making me lose weight despite a caloric deficit but it sure has helped my strength gains at the gym. I haven't lost much weight at all but I've been lifting a LOT more everywhere. I guess all that meat is helping me build muscles! Beef is magical.
Back on the S&E again. The three days off didn't do much damage, just up half a pound. Then again I didn't go too crazy. A couple drinks on Saturday, some pistachios on Sunday (chicken both nights for dinner), and a roast with three sweet potatoes Monday.
