  1. Ultimate Diet 2.0 Log - Because Masochist Tendencies Are the Best Types


    So here we go again.

    Ultimate Diet 2.0
    Likely the craziest way to lose fat that isn't a PSMF

    this is my variant of Ultimate Diet. It is not the same as Lyle McDonald's book but works for ME.

    How does this differ?

    I am taking an approach more akin to the "Anabolic Diet" by Dr. Mauro Di Pasquale, or the original Dan Duchaine books that did more of a ketogenic diet.

    My carb loads will be less structured, and I will do keto with 50g carbs or less on my diet "keto" type days, with a focus on very low calories (more than a 50% deficit from Monday to Friday).

    Goal is FAST FAT LOSS. I am a fatty now, see photos below.

    I thought it may be a good idea to log this, keep myself on point and share the experience.

    What?

    The Ultimately Diet 2.0 is the next version of what started as "Body Opus" by Dan Duchaine.

    Dan was ahead of his time in the health and nutrition field and also wrote the original "Ultimate Diet" which his friend and colleague Lyle McDonald decided to tweak.

    The end result? An original ten day diet compressed into seven days, packaged and sold as the "Ultimate Diet 2.0“

    • It is a cyclical carbohydrate based diet
    • It is not for practically anyone
    • It is meant for people in shape and lean to get leaner*
    • You can grow lean muscle and lose fat at the same time on the diet


    * I am not as lean as Lyle recommends for this diet, however I don't like boring steady slow diets and have done this in the past to great success.

    How?

    You train very specifically several times a week.
    During the week you will complete

    • One or two carbohydrate/glycogen depletion workouts
    • A pre carb load tension workout
    • a heavy duty power workout
    • Cardio is optional


    You also cycle calories and carbohydrates. one day on the diet you eat as much as 1000+ grams carbs

    That is right, you'll carb load that high or higher. It is based on your body weight but the point is that

    • Creating a large deficit and restricting carbs sets up a unique environment for your body
    • The body doesn't catch up to the carb load to store fat due to your exercise and macros for fat loss
    • You can burn fat through the carb load and only store all those carbs in muscle.


    So this is CKD, so what?

    Yes, it's a CKD but it's very specific and targeted in terms of calories.

    About Me

    36 years old, training for a long time. Lost a lot of chances to "get huge" due to having a fear of getting fat, and now training for fitness and aesthetic looks, as in I don't care if I am massive.

    Starting weight of 177.x lbs (I'll do photos at a point in the future, after this introduction post).

    Goal weight of 165 lbs carb filled.

    Questions? Let me know.

    Cool, glad someone is interested.

    I need to update later on today with the progress of the first 3 days.
    I hope I can update it daily. I will see how it goes being that I will do most of the log from my phone.

    Should be great.

    Sneak preview, I am down 4 lbs in 2 days from the glycogen depletion workouts

  5. This is very intriguing. Following!

    Curious -- what kind of results did you have in the past with this?

  11. It was exceptional. I will excel it this time.

  12. FIRST TWO DEPLETION WORKOUTS DONE

    So I completed the first two depletion workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.
    They are absolutely painfully brutal and the fact that I finished them is crazy to start with.

    If it were not for cardarine, I suspect that I would have stood less of a chance at finishing.

    CALORIES EATEN

    The first three days of the week are low calorie days. Actually the first FOUR. So I am eating at 1400 calories a day, with 20% carbs, 1.2g/lb protein and the rest fat, however I am not worried about the macros as much as I am for the number. Since we are going to eat a giant carb load on friday, we generally do not see the bad effects of these numbers on this diet.

    Two Options for These Workouts

    You can do this on two days, or you can do one long workout. I have done one long workout before and it took me around 2+ hours, but it was probably one of the craziest things I ever did.

    This is what the depletion workouts do

    They basically do what they should, deplete your muscle glycogen and make you lighter.
    These stats may go back UP as I forgot to dose mk-677 yesterday, so I may have lost some water weight that this always seem to make me retain, but that is good because I know I am getting depleted.

    WHAT IS NEXT?

    Today is a slow and steady state cardio day.
    I am exhausted, and have not slept well the past few nights. I have a lot of anxiety as a loved one is in Asia and North Korean missiles are not exactly very accurate.

    The real world. Yep.

  13. so you're also on mk and gw? how long have you been on those?

    Gw just started last week only using for 4 weeks to try and accelerate fat loss.

    MK same however I ran mk 677 for three months last spring into the summer.

    Otherwise no more sarms (which those aren't really). The suppression isn't worth it and the "gainzzz" are marginal at best I find.

    I've run lgd-4033 myself and didn't like the after effects, low energy etc.

  15. I'll add that I am super skeptical to the fat loss effects of GW... Cardio aside, I want to see the fat loss effects more than cardio.

  16. Friday August 11. Diet Day and Carb Load Start in Evening

    Slept much better last night, and woke up today up 2 lbs.
    I expected as much, because I remembered to take my dose of MK 677 yesterday, which should help me hold onto water weight.

    Additionally, my heavy drop in weight from yesterday had a lot to do with adjusting to the diet. I had some upset stomach and used the bathroom a lot more than I would have liked, so dropped most of my stomach contents.

    This was not the case today. Feeling much better in the stomach, so I am sure that I am holding more water.

    Walking to Work

    The temperature was 108 F yesterday but will drop to 104 F today. I will take this opportunity to walk to and from work today. It is 2.340 miles in one direction, so a round trip of around 4.6 miles.

    The book recommends that I do fasted AM cardio, but I will do this instead of hitting the gym.

    Intermittent Fasting

    Somehow I did not mention in the first post that I am using fasting to get through this diet. I am also developing a website based on fasting principles and fat loss that will be more generally targeted to everyone (vs just the bodybuilding crowd) as I do this diet.

    I did not mention it, likely because I have been eating this way for years and it just how I am at this point in time.

    So there is that, I am fasting, eating twice a day. Once when I break my fast and absolutely have to eat because I can't stand it (this is usually around the 18 hour mark), and once in the evening.

    However today I will fast through the day until the tension workout pre-carb load. This will be challenging based on the amount of walking I am doing I am sure.

    Yeah gw wasn't for me. I bloated so bad that it was painful.

    Cardarine I enjoyed but it was brutal on too low of carbs for me. At the time I was training for a half marathon and I was so lethargic through the days that it was a struggle. Once I added more carbs to my diet it was great but I never saw any real endurance benefits from it. Just the carb usage aspects I liked.

    I'm sure you meant that MK wasn't for you to do to the bloating.

    Honestly, the first 3 days of the diet I did some combination of walking to work and driving.

    Based on a pretty accurate pedometer app I probably burned a thousand calories during the walking periods and being on my feet all day at work.

    That coupled with the ridiculously long arduous workouts, and the car during I probably overdid things.

    Today I'm ridiculously tired, to the point where I wanted to quit today but I'm not quitting.

    I'm just going to have to watch myself next week and drive to work more than I walk.

  20. Saturday Morning - After Start of Carb Load

    Woke up today at 178.4, which is up 3+ lb from yesterday, however do not feel fatter, simply heavier. That is the hallmark if a successful start to the carb loading phase.

    Yesterdays Pre Workout Training

    These are mainly machine based workouts. The point is not to look cool, but to be controlled with time under tension of the lifts.

    it is not a lot, but you still feel like ass afterwards. Name:  tension workout.JPG

    Rest of Today

    To minimize my time feeling tired, I will stick to fasting for today. It is not optimal according to lyle, but he also suggests strategically using caffeine through the day.

    I quit caffeine that is not in chocolate (naturally occurring) July 2nd, and I won't start again for some diet. Therefore I will just do what I need to in order to push through the day, and will take some glucose disposal agent that I have this evening when I eat to ensure maximal muscle minimal fat spillover.

  21. Any reason for stopping caffiene or just taking a temporary stim break?
