    Very nice!

    Do you mind sharing a few more specifics? Namely:

    - length of cycle
    - how many iu / day
    - sub-q or intra-muscular injections
    - what you ate (did you do the same thing every day / did you have any cheats/slipups?)
    - did you do the first couple days binge

    I'd love to know

    Well tonight's workout was complete crap. I mentioned not feeling very strong during my last workout but I did still manage to get through it. Tonight I felt downright weak. I struggled so much with the first 3 sets that I didn't even attempt a 4th set on anything.

    Thankfully I only have a few days left so it's not a big deal. I'll probably just skip my 2nd workout this week and get back to it next week when I can start eating like normal.

    Haha! Awesome! Good for you, man! That takes some serious commitment and you did it.

    I'd recommend going a little ways past your "goal" though, because you'll definitely see a decent rebound from the glycogen

    Day 21
    173.8 lbs (-1.0, -16.4 total)

    Ok, couple of issues. I started getting a sick/lightheaded feeling a couple times yesterday and again this morning. Also had one hell of a time getting out of bed this morning just because I felt like absolute crap (thankfully I'm off work today so I slept in). Then on top of that when I went to take my HCG I could not for the life of me find a spot to inject that didn't hurt like hell.

    I had every intention of sticking it out until Thursday but based on these issues I decided to make a small change that I'm super psyched about....

    TODAY IS MY LAST DAY!

    I'm very happy with the results overall and I really don't think a couple extra days would make a huge difference. Tomorrow morning will be my ending weigh-in and measurements.

    Sorry to hear about the issues, bud. Congrats on going this deep in the diet and on all of the success you've had. I'm looking forward to seeing your final measurements. If you wouldn't mind, post up your 2nd set of final measurements a few days after you've gone back to a normal diet to see how much size you gain back in your muscles.

    Great work, man!

    Thanks bro, I'm really glad somebody is interested in this.

    Honestly if I wasn't so close to the end I would have just sucked it up and powered through, but like I said I'm more than happy with the results through 21 days and to me an extra 2-3 days just isn't worth messing with right now. Plus since I've been getting close to the end I've been thinking more and more about where to go from here and it's got me really excited about just eating normally again

    I'll be paying close attention to what happens in the next couple weeks since I think that will be the really interesting part, so I'll definitely post a couple more updates.

    Diet is over!

    Weighed in at 174.4 lbs this morning. Here's what I lost in 21 days:

    Weight: 15.8 lbs
    Neck: 1"
    Chest: 3"
    Waist: 3"
    Bicep: 1/4"

    This was all over the course of 3 weeks, lifting 2x per week for 45-50 mins (except the last week which had only 1 partial workout) and no cardio. Just in case anybody remembers me mentioning cardio earlier I chose the path of the lazy bastard and never ended up doing it.

    I took before and after pictures for my own personal record and I can see progress everywhere. My problem areas (chest/stomach) are definitely smaller and my upper back looks a little wider now in comparison to my lower back.

    Overall I can't imagine being happier with my results after only 3 weeks. I'm not nearly as lean as I want to be yet but this diet has gotten me a lot closer!

    Congrats, buddy! Truly awesome and inspiring log - very well done. I hope a lot of people get to see this. You used this diet the way that it should be - accomplish some quick short term results and jump into a healthy, well-managed nutritional plan. I wish you the best of luck and hope I see you around the forums frequently.

    Just realized it's been a little over a week since I finished the HCG so it's time for an update!

    Weighed in this morning at 177.4 which is 3 pounds up from the end of the diet. Most of that came in the first few days as I started eating a lot of carbs, since then the only change I've seen is a little bit of fluctuating up and down.

    Measurements are pretty close to the same. I measured a 1/4" loss in my arms during the diet but they're back to original size now. Only other measurement that changed is my waist is a little bigger now than at the end of the diet so I guess that is where I hold the extra water weight.

    I think maybe next round my wife does of this, i'll join in but rather than use HCG i'll just use something like 1000mg of Masteron a week plus 600 mg testosterone I'd feel better about muscle retention on that vs HCG

    I've seen some people mention trying the HCG along with test or something to retain muscle. Seems like it would be a good idea. Not sure if you could completely drop the HCG though, of course I'm not sure exactly what it is that the HCG does.

    How is it going for the wife?

    she's down to 125 from a start of 133 or 134, and has just ended round one of the diet. She may do another round of it in a few weeks

    Great update, man. Glad to hear you've been able to keep it off!

    And glad to hear it's gone well for the wife, Easy!

    I've talked to someone who ran tren duing his run of the diet and it worked well for him. I'd recommend keeping the hCG in play along with the anabolics. I know there isn't enough to really know this, yet, but I theorize that the hCG induces a form of ketosis and that's the key to burning predominantly fat over muscle (as muscle would be more readily available in terms of your body choosing one over the other). So hCG + the diet + anabolics = crazy fat loss, strength gains and muscle retention (in theory).

    Well it's been almost a month since I ended the diet. Where the heck has the time gone? Due to being really stressed out about several different things I've been going through the past few weeks or so with no real motivation so my lifting hasn't been very consistent and my diet hasn't been on point at all.

    Since the end of the diet I'm up about 5-6 lbs and 1" each on my chest and waist. That's still an acceptable rebound to me (just have to get it under control now), but I'm sure it would have been a lot lower if I hadn't let myself fall back into crappy old habits for so long.

    I've noticed a couple things since doing this diet that I found pretty interesting:

    1 - My hunger is much easier to control. Before the diet I had somehow gotten to the point where I would suddenly get a horrible sick feeling if I didn't eat often enough. Now I actually go through the normal stages of hunger and I can still function if I start to get hungry.

    2 - Before and after pictures are wonderful things. It's hard to see yourself objectively, at least for me. I still have fat I need to lose but when I compare the pictures to what I looked like before...I had really underestimated how much fat I had put on. Starting out as "skinny fat" I've had problems for a while with going back and forth between wanting to gain weight and wanting to lose weight but now I can clearly see that I'm still carrying way too much fat.

    3 - I got more comments than I expected. I had a couple people ask how I lost so much weight which I found funny because I didn't think 15 pounds sounded like much, nor did I think it was really noticeable until I saw the pictures side by side. Also had people ask me why I was even trying to lose weight in the first place. This certainly doesn't help with the "skinny fat" struggle I mentioned. That's the curse of having all of my fat in areas that are easily hidden by a shirt I guess (though when I say it like that it doesn't really sound like a bad thing).


    Anyway I'm off to the post office tomorrow to pick up another bottle of HCG I ordered (mother ****ers couldn't just leave it because I wasn't here to sign for it).
