    I'm not sure where those numbers came from. I just started, on day two....I log my food on MFP and I was just over 1400 cals for the first day. So, I was not hungry yesterday...just eating lunch and not really hungry but eating anyway.

    It was a review on Amazon.com. I was curious if those low cal counts confirmed in practice by the folks who tried the diet & how it compares to the Ultimate Diet 2.0.

    As I said, I was over 1400 cals and I went by the book as to portion sizes etc.

    Here is the quote from the review:
    I read that review too... that's pretty much when I decided I would eat however much I wanted.

    During phase 2 I have been having beef jerky as a snack (2 to 3 ounces) or I'll have lunch meat with dijon mustard or horseradish (2 to 3 ounces again).

    niki.

    I know you weigh yourself all the time. On this diet in your first week, did you weight yourself a lot as well...If so, when did you start to see the loss? I know you said you lost something like 8 lbs the first week. I'm just starting Phase 3 of the first week. For chits and giggles I stood on the scale this morn and I haven't lost anything.

    In caloric/macros split diets weight drop occur rapidly and drammatically in the low carb phase (usually on day 2, 3 and 4). Normally it corresponds to urinating buckets as you free up water. Did you pair up the low carb pahse with boot-camp style workouts - in other words many sets of many reps with light weights (is it recommended?)

    No, according to the author, was to do weights, low reps, high weight, on day 3 or 4. Day one or two to do light cardio. Which I did.

    I picked up this book at the library after reading the Amazon reviews. I don't know if I will do it as the phase 1 carbs scare me a bit. There are many foods listed that I basically gave up during my weight loss. Can I ask if any of you were fairly low carb previously and what sort of reaction (or not) you got to the carb increase? What sort of losses have you had?

    Lost 75# eating low carb (20-40 g) and then MDA primal low carb. Tried many other options but only LC helped me lose weight and improve health. Now at a good weight, I find my body can tolerate a few more carbs but rarely go over 100 g.

    I had no reactions to the carbs but I did not have any loss for the week.

    I'm giving it this week and if I have not loss again, I'm off it.

    Thanks for your response. I've been told that I've "lost enough" but truthfully, there is still some fat on me that I'd like to get rid of. I've been considering a # of diet changes/refinements that might help me lose an additional 8-10#s of fat. I've concentrated on resistance exercise to build muscle but this is a slow process, especially for an older woman.
