Rampage Jackson's wannabe CKD log
As some of you know...I'm on day 6 of my CKD journey. I'm not sure if I've entered ketosis yet, as I had a carbo-gorge the day before starting CKD. I've kept my carbs low ~20 per day, no direct sources. The only trouble I've had so far is diarrhea on a few occasions, and a MASSIVE headache (the likes of which I've never had before) this morning.
Here were my starting stats:
I'm coming off rotator cuff surgery in late October...there have been a few complications, but I'm fully cleared now, and will ease into a resistance band program for 2-3 months before hitting the iron again. I have the Iron Woody Masters package, so I'll have a lot of options. The resistance program will start this coming week.
As far as supplementation, I'll really only be using Fish Oil, ALA, and a Multi. I do have a stockpile of sesathin from the NP bulk days, which I may include.
I'll now introduce you to my food logs:
Click here for RJ's Food Logs!
This will be easier than attempting to import a picture of each day's stuff (how do they do that?).
As you can see by looking at the logs, there are several days where it says there are 65-75% of fat coming from saturated sources. This really isn't the case, because if you add the three types (sat, mono, poly) together, it's always a lot less than my actual total of fat grams. I attribute this to many food labels only stating total fat and sat fat, but not mono,poly. Ya dig?
Anyways, after 6 days on the diet, I'm down to 267lbs...mainly water weight lost, but moving in the right direction. Feel free to question, comment, concern me away.

Sounds like you have a good plan goin...if you hit a wall before refeeds and you need extra energy, I would suggest a fat burner that gives you energy

Wasn't planning on doing a carb up this weekend, but I cracked when we went to a birthday party at Red Robin last night. I ended up eating a Royal Red Robin (with bun). It was only about 75 extra carbs, but I felt bloated afterwards!
I have a couple of questions...
1. When are you guys taking ALA? I've been taking 2 before my breakfast, another 2 with my 2nd meal, then 1 with each of my last two...Taking 200mg caps.
2. Are any of you incorporating Sesathin into your diets? If so, how are you implementing it?

2. Three caps a day of sesamin is the norm. You can megadose it at six caps a day but there is a slight chance it make you lethargic.

Big Update coming tonight. Had a fantastic 1st workout back yesterday! One quick question...I seem to be forgetting to take my ALA before my meals, and always remember like right afterwards...how much of a difference will this make?

So yesterday I had my first workout back from Rotator Cuff surgery! I bought the bands on a recommendation from one of my physical therapists, and I love them!
The bands are color coded easy to hard:
Purple, Red, Blue, Green, Black
I did an Upper Body split today, quick pace...not a lot of rest between sets.
Assisted Pushups: 3x12 (Purple)+ 1x3 unassisted
Reverse Woodchopper: 3x10 (Blue)
Tricep Pushdown: 3x12 (Red)
Lat Pulldowns: 3x12 (Blue)
Horizontal Rows: 3x12 (Red)
Shrugs 2x10 (Purple)
Deadlift 2x10 (Red)
Workout went great, but I'm amazed how much strength I've lost since my surgery in October! I have a feeling I'm going to get my money's worth outta these bands!
I did 15 min of HIT: 5x15 second intervals at max effort, 30 second rest at half max effort between sets, 5 min Warmup & Cooldown. Felt great, and blew my legs up. Pedaling at max resistance as fast as you can is tough, even at 15 secs per interval!
Lower body workout tomorrow..we'll see how it goes!

My Triumphant 1000th post!!!
Finally hit 1000 posts! It only took the better part of 5 years. I'd like to thank all of my old school homies: Dsade, Dr. D, Lake, Bob Sakamoto...the list goes on and on!
Anyways, here is my food for the day:
Attempted to do a leg workout today...wasn't real satisfied as I blew the **** outta my legs doing cycle intervals. I did squats, calf raises, and some deep hamstring stretching. I'm not totally surprised, as I knew I was in for some serious DOMS. Doing more HIIT tomorrow.

Will hopefully post results from carb-up day 1 tonight...
Quick question: Does anyone who takes ALA notice a slight warmness sensation about 15-20 minutes after taking it? Like a body-heat rise? Is that an effect from the glucose disposal...or am I just crazy?

Did depletion workout last night, and started carb-up.
Here is the depletion workout:
Bands go: Purple, Red, Blue, Green, Black
Squats 4x20 Double Purple Bands
Pull Aparts (Reverse Flyes) 2x20, 1x15 Purple
Assisted Pushups 1x20, 2x15 Green
Horizontal Rows 4x20 Purple
Tricep Pushdowns 3x20 Purple
Face Pulls 2x15 Purple
1 Arm Curls 2x15 (Each Arm) Purple
Good Mornings 2x20 Purple
I was amazed how little resistance it took to burn up my muscles on high reps...pretty much the first time I've ever really done a workout with super high reps!
Here are Friday's Meals:
As you can see, the middle row is the 1st 24 hours of carbup, and the bottom row is the last 12 hours. I was shooting for 800 in the 1st 24, and 400 in the last 12.
Ended up with 797 in 1st 24, and 333 in the last 12 hours. Pretty close to where I wanted to be, but the fat could be a bit lower...I didn't break it down in the periods, but I have a feeling it was a bit high. What do y'all think?

Another day down... Had to force myself to eat today, as I just wasn't hungry. I wasn't bloated, just not hungry. Weighed in this morning 5 lbs over what I was before carbup, 270 lbs. Not a lot to report today, as no workouts. I did FAIL at making a medicineball out of a basketball...the sand I wanted to use wasn't fine enough for the funnel .
Here is today's food:

Here are my foods for today. As I mentioned above, had a spectacular workout today!
Workout today was:
Chest Press: 2x12 Double Red Bands, 1x12 Double Blue Bands
Lat Pulldowns: 4x10 Double Blue Bands
Tricep Pushdowns: 3x10 Double Red Bands
Push Press: 3x10 Blue Band (Max Tension)
Bicep Curl (Straight Bar): 3x12 Blue Band
Assisted Pushups: 3x12 Blue Band
Deadlift: 3x8 Double Blue Bands (Max Tension)
Again...I felt like a million ****ing dollars after this workout. Pure Euphoria!
Also, to anyone who employs bands: I highly recommend going out and getting a 2-2.5 ft x 1inch length of PVC pipe. It has really taken my band training to the next level IMO. I used my "bar" today with every exercise except the pushups. Makes it far easier when using Iron Woody or Jumpstretch bands.

Your set up is looking great. All of your macros look good for the week and carb loads. The only tip I can give you is to plan out your carb loads each week. Whenever I do a CKD I always find myself overeating during the carb loads and this sets me back a day or two the following week. Also, don't be afraid to lower the carbs a bit on your first carb load day if you feel like you might not be responding well to that many carbs.
I don't respond to high amounts of carbs at all so when I run this type of diet I usually do around 400 grams day 1 and 200 day 2.
You just have to play around and see what fits you best. Good luck!

You want minimal fat on carb load days. Keep protein to around 30%, fat as low as possible, and the rest carbs. Protein isn't all that important (still obviously somewhat important), it's mostly about the amount and types of carbs you take in. Also, during your first carb load day make sure your first 2 meals are liquid carb sources. Trust me, I've tried to eat a ton of pasta or bread and I got such an upset stomach from my digestive system not being used to the carbs.

So basically, protein normal or slightly lower than normal. Rest of calories = carbs.

Thanks for the knowledge Chef!
Here are today's foods:
Couldn't do the cardio I planned today, as I had to attend an emergency board meeting tonight. I'm gonna tack on some cardio after my workout tomorrow.
01-21-2009, 11:27 PM
Here are the foods for the day. Went a little high on protein, and not high enough on fats. Nobody's perfect I suppose. I've gotta figure out how to lower my protein on workout days, except for post-workout.
Did lower body workout today:
Squats: 1x12 Double Blue Bands, 2x12 Double Green, 1x5 Double Green, Double Purple
Leg Curls: 4x15 Red Band
Calf Raises: 3x20 Blue Band
Lunges: 3x10 (each leg) Red Band
I did 20 minutes of LISS cardio at about 65-70% Max Heart Rate directly after workout.
I'm having trouble coming up with creative ways to do lower body exercises with the bands. Anyone got a good resource for them?
