Amazing, I ate nearly 5000 calories today.
An awe inspiring 350g of fat!
QUOTE=Misabi;1225877]Finally home after just over two weeks of travelling in Asia, mostly in tourist areas and without the option to cook or prepare my own food.
I'm happy with not putting on a lot of body fat (normally I put on at least an inch on my waist when I visit Malaysia), probably due to an unplanned 24 hr fast due to not knowing which end of my body food was going to try to explosively escape, followed by multiple days where food continued to go straight through
However, I'm not so happy with the loss of muscle mass.
As of this morning my waist has increased by 0.5", chest down 1" & biceps down to 0.5".
Dietwise, it was always my plan to give the S&E plan another go, as I was expecting to have some fat to drop after my holiday, still contemplating whether I will go the whole hog or just keep it as breakfast and add some veggies and sweet potato or rice in with the evening meal, for a mass gaining protocol. Kinda tempted to stick with the strict S&E for a few weeks though, as I saw good strength and muscle increases last time.[/QUOTE]
I bet the trip was interesting and enjoyable. Very hard to follow steak and eggs in Malaysia! Not to mention you probably didn't have access to good strength training. Give it a try for a couple of weeks and see how it goes, you'll probably bounce back with some great strength gains.
For those of you contemplating a second round of S&E, how about doing a "Nose to Tail Critters and Eggs" plan? Throw in some liver, an oxtail soup, a piece of salmon. Might keep it from getting boring and I bet you would see the same great results.
Just a thought.
