You've done great! Like you, its beginning to wear on me as well. My 4 weeks are up on Saturday and it can't get here soon enough. Longing for some good primal eating! I think next time I try this I will do two refeeds per week. Good results for me though and its surprising how my strength has improved.

Oh I don't actually think I'm damaging my metabolism. I don't really believe that's possible. It's just I'm having more and more weak moments and I start using bizarro-logic to justify abandoning the plan.

I went to the store and bought two organic apples this afternoon and finished them both on the 3 minute drive home. It was a slip, to be sure, but it's better than and out and out binge.

And now I'm back from the dead. Resurrection. While gone, I had a birthday, a friend's birthday, a Memorial Day barbecue, two Father's Day celebrations, and handful of other bad, bad diet breaks. Those occasions, combined with a lack of posting on here, resulted in roughly 0-5% diet adherence and sloppy, sloppy living. But I'm back. I'm back to continue what I started. My original three point five weeks of steak and eggs still show, and I know I can right the ship in no time. In the interest of accountability, here are some photos.
This is about two weeks before I started steak and eggs:
And this is yesterday:
So I kept some of my gains (or losses, as it were) but I'm definitely not there yet. I've been eating good food, just far too much of it. I've been training hard, but too sporadic and with too many breaks. Back on track now. I'll be doing meat and eggs rather than strictly steak. Fatty fish, whole chickens, roasts, pork, sausages, bacon, etc. Probably some dark chocolate too, but in moderation.
Sorry for the lapse. Let's see how the next few weeks go.
