    Mmmmm...wine. Don't even sweat it big guy. One day won't do a thing to your progress. In fact, if anything, giving yourself a cheat day ends up being beneficial. Gives you something to strive for AND breaks up the monotony of being strict all week. You've had your fun, now refocus and keep pushin' brotha. You're kickin' a$$!

    Yeah. It's all good.

  4. So, I've been averaging about 2700-2800 calories a day (average of calories over 7 days) for three weeks. In those three weeks, I've lost 5 pounds (3.5, 1.5, and 0). So my weight loss has plateaued but my strength is booming. I've got lots a fat to lose. So, should I drop calories or add more cardio? Truthfully, my cardio has been pretty laid back. What do you all think?

    Very low intensity ( bike riding, brisk walks, elliptical) 3x a week (20 minutes). I probably should get some more in.

  7. You definitely look leaner. So you're doing a great job. I would say maybe drop about 100 calories per day and up cardio a bit. Than the following week another 100 cals. Also when I cut up I drop carbs under 100g and higher protein and fats. That 100 calorie could be one of your carb sources.

    After this post I suggest raising the intensity a bit more. Add an extra 10min if you can and an extra day and keep diet as is.

    Most definitely lower carbs. You need to be at <50 for at least 2 weeks. You need to get into ketosis and you will see major results. First water weight, then funky taste in your mouth, possible headache and lethargy for about 2-3 days then a rush of energy and a new feeling of well-being. But if you go over your carbs, it resets and you need to start over.
    That is how you make it happen.
    Good luck. Also, you might increase fat consumption to speed up the process.

  23. Yeah, I've done that before. It tastes like ammonia. Keto diets are not my favorite. I might cycle three days low carbs and then back to moderate carbs. You got me thinking 3!

    I've been considering a Keto diet....how long does it take to start seeing results.

    Well, the immediate results (couple days)are water weight as the kidneys release sodium and water. After that, fat loss starts. Longet keto = more fat burning. Mental Challenge > Physical Challenge, like most things we do...

    Yeah, I've seen great results with Keto but my energy drops and I get cranky. So far today I've only had 26 carbs. I'm gonna go as far as I can (maybe four days) and then cycle up for legs and back.

    Greek yogurt and cottage is actually good. If cutting I rather drop the cottage cheese and keep the Greek yogurt. Fish and chicken is the way to go. Keep it up

  37. Looking good! How's your mirror looking? Also, I would up the fat and lower the carbs to <50 for serious results. It's all mental, isn't it...

    I'm gonna stay between 75 and a 100 for carbs and keep my protein over 300. Calories will be 2300-2500. If I don't see results I will bite the Keto bullet. I feel good. I plan on posting pics in about a week but the mirror looks good. Veins are starting to pop in my arms. I figure I still have about 10 percent bf to lose before I will be comfortable at the pool.

    I personally don't feel keto is necessary. Maybe if you're insulin sensitive and your body loves to store fat...i don't know, I'm certainly no expert. I'm currently seeing great results taking in 1.5g/lb in protein, .5g/lb in fats and the rest in carbs to hit my calorie goal (which is about 300-500 below maintenance). I personally need the carbs to get through my workouts but I'm pretty depleted in time for some steady-state cardio. Just food for thought (see what I did there).

    Yeah, I also don't think going Keto is sustainable for the amount of time I need to cut. It is something to consider as I progress but as I just lowered cals and I'm going to see what happens. I agree with energy. I feel like ass without carbs.
