  1. government contractor, systems engineer. I don't usually work on sunday or more than more than 40hours. Just that time of year I guess.

    For some strange reason I'm just not handling the stress very well this time. Gotta work on that



    I'll be hitting the gym tonight, hopefully not too late.


  2. I feel much better today. Started taking relora and just changed my outlook.


    weight was 182. Workout was great.

  3. Good stuff man. How many lb of fat are you trying to drop? Or have you changed your goals?

    As a guess, I probably have 15 pounds before I would be pretty shreded. Its still my goal to use this diet to cut down. I plan to cut my carb days to 12 hours or less starting this weekend. I hope to start seeing the weightloss after that. This past week was a mild setback, but I don't think it did too much harm.

  5. I feel the same way bro, I went to visit some old friends from college and did nothing but drink and eat like ****. Basically a 72hour carb refeed

    Ya so were going to really work on that from now on

  6. I have the most insane dreams on this diet. I wondered if it was just me, but a quick google search revealed it as a side effect of ketosis.


    Crazy.



    This week has been ok. I made all of my workouts despite long hours at work. I am going to alter my workouts to be higher VO2 max kind of thing. Maybe throw in burpies or something. Focus on fat burning for about a month, hopefully overcome my beer consumption that way

    last night was the first attempt at this change. For DE lower body day, I did 10 sets of box jumps, supersetted with sprint work. My chest was burning. Then I did a little bit of lower back and hamstring stuff.


    Thinking about scheduling my bloodwork. I wanted to see some weight loss before hand, but I better make sure I'm not fiving up my blood lipids.... I really hope this does what I expect, that is improved HDL and tri's, and maybe static LDL. We shall see...




    btw, weight, appearance, etc, has pretty much remained static since the diet started. I'll take a progress pic soon and see if anything has changed without me noticing.

  7. Last night I was down to 177lbs.

    Now that I am past the initial phase, and past work stress and too much beer, the diet seems to be working. Hopefully after carb up this weekend, my weight is still down a few pounds.

  8. got a little carried away with the diet/carbs this weekend all the way through last night.

    Got into the gym today and still weighed 177, so thats good news. Going to focus on the diet after that little break and see if the results start pouring in. My body is definitely adjusted, a few carbs here and there don't seem to kick me out of fat burning mode.


    Gym sessions have been going great. No loss of energy without the carbs, and my strength is up some. I really need to go get that blood lipids test soon, I'll try and make the appt tomorrow. If that comes out good I'm sold on this diet for the long term.

  9. thats great to hear johnyq! I'm glad you have made it past the initial assessment phase and are feeling good on the diet. A word about the beer drinking - I used to drink beer on the daily before I started this diet as well and now I feel so much better having a few beers here and there on the carb up and I don't feel counterproductive by doing it. I <3 beer!

  10. got my blood results back, and it wasn't great.


    around november of last year:
    total: 173
    HDL: 38
    LDL: 120
    tris: 77

    yesterday:
    total: 210
    HDL: 45
    LDL: 147
    tris: 88


    So at least my ratio of LDL: HDL improved, and I feel like my CVD risk might be lower (things that can't be seen by the test, like LDL particle size "likely" improved from what I have read).

    When I get home with the results in front of me, I'll add my glucose levels.

    At any rate, it was a good run, but no more steak and eggs every day. I'll probably just go with precision nutrition now, although I would consider doing a high vegetable fat CKD, instead of all of the eggs/steak/cheese.

  11. My levels look way better and i just got off a 20 week cycle, and I'm on AD.....

    Hmmm.....

  12. I should know mine soon. I have to get blood work done ASAP. I'll post my results here also.

    its all individual, since I wasn't losing weight, I wasn't surprised my cholesterol went up.


    If you are following the Atkins plan and are not dropping weight, pay close attention to lipid levels. Numerous studies have shown that in absence of weight loss, ketogenic diets may be detrimental to blood lipids levels while ketogenic diets that result in weight loss are good for blood lipid levels

    From looking at an old sample diet you posted, I agree that if you were to stick with the diet and lower your red meat and cheese intake and up your vegetable fats you would probably see improvements. Maybe steak only once a week is something that would work best for you. At any rate, its good to have these tests done to see if you have any peculiarities. Thanks for posting the blood results!

  16. Just got back from the doctor's and I have to wait until after April 1 for my insurance to cover it.
