Thomas, thanks for the explanation, that helps a lot. I will certainly shoot for the 12 days so as to experience complete benefits. I just want to warn you guys, that when I get to the ship it will be harder to get my macros in, since I have no idea exactly what type of beef they use and how much salmon I eat. So I will lay out what I eat and we will go from there. That will be starting on Sunday when I sign on, and I will be out at sea for 6 months, back to Miami every Sunday though. So if any of you are in Miami and want to train on a Sunday morning, let me know!!!
