M4: 2x Horley's Ripped.

FAR FREAKIN OUT MAN! I have never been that full! Hahaha, by M4 I wanted to throw up so bad and I managed to choke down M5. Only god knows how... I only ate 1,300 and not even I don't think it reaches that I think it's just under.
Right now I just feel so over stuffed and fat. Hahaha, but I think some of it is water retention too because of TOTM. lol great! *Not*
Ahhh, I did 2 hours of walking this morning on an empty stomach with L-Carnitine taken 15mins before and so far only 10 Spider Push-ups.
I even have a headache from it lol. Anyone else experienced this over full feeling??
Woo! But it's 'Fat day' tomorrow!! I love my fats!! Makes me a happy girl!

M1: 2x Horley's Ripped + 2 Tbsp Natty Peanut Butter.
M2: 160g Chicken Thigh + 100g Broccoli + 1 Tbsp Olive Oil + 1 Tbsp Balsamic.
M3: 160g Salmon + 2 cups of Dark Leafy Greens + 80g Asparagus.
M4: 2x Horley's Ripped + 2 Tbsp Natty Peanut Butter.
1000mg L- Carnitine taken before walking this morning. I walked for about 1 hour. Planning on doing Spider Push-Ups later on and hopefully completing a full body weight workout. I just love the Push-Up's, idk why either.
My strength and stamina have increased greatly as well as motivation and energy! Normally if I didn't stick to the diet completely I would have slipped and probably binged and called it a 'carb-up' day. With this program it's different I know the meals are interchangable so I can just switch it up and adjust it to my day. Which is ace!
Keto always has and always will work for me.
Carbs don't like me and I don't like them!

'Cheat day' is in two weeks. I really want some fruit!! I really like how simple this diet is, the only problem I'm having is that I get extremely full after about M3. Hmmm...
Maybe I should be taking Progress Photos or something to see how I am changing? I'm am definitely seeing changes even 2 days in. My arms are starting to show definition again and I have an outline back on my stomach.
I really want to go from my runs after work when I get home! Just wanna stick my earphones in my ear, crank up the rock and run as hard as I can but my BPM isn't allowed to go over 120. Hahaha, sucks.

M3: 1x Horley's Ripped + 2 Tbsp of Natural Peanut Butter.

1 Hour of LISS Cardio + L-Carnitine.
However much Bodyweight Training I can do!
This cutting diet is working really fast despite me eating 2000+ calories some days. The next morning I still lose weight. I'm not used to eating this much either, well I am but it's all crappy junk foods. I haven't eaten this well since forever! I'm definitely seeing some changes in my body composition, I'm seeing lean muscle that I haven't seen in about 1.5 years!
But I have also:
- Sworn off drinking alcohol.
- Don't drink soft drink anymore, not even diet ones.
- Given up on chew gum.
- Given up Protein Bars.
So it's all good really. I used to get breakouts sometimes too and now my face is alot clearer, skin tone has evened out somewhat too, my eye's are bluer and brighter (or so I've been told) Umm, and a whole other bunch of stuff too! Just by cutting out Sugar and Carbs! My energy is through the roof!
Oh, and I have a question...
What's wrong with eating animal organs and stuff?
I was walking past the meat section yesterday morning and they had Lamb Hearts for heaps cheap. Is it bad for human's to eat? Not enough Protein or something?
Whats wrong with it? Do people eat animal organs?

nothing is wrong with it, and loads of people eat them such as steak and kidney pie.
i think the main thing is people are put off from eating organs as its a little more creepy to some than just eating the muscle and flesh.
also how do you think the l-carnitine is working for you? and have you been doing 1hr of cardio from the very beginning or from the start of this log as i think i will need to do 1hr soon just i dont want to if i can get away with doing 40mins and wondering if you think you will have to increase your cardio?
11-01-2009, 04:22 AM #11
L-Carnitine is seriously worth it in my opinion.
Ummm, well I walk EVERYWHERE. I can walk up to 6 hours a day but at least 1 hour a day is absolute minimum for me. I will probably hit a wall soon and have to step up the cardio to see some changes, and I would be pretty cool with it anyway because it's going to get me to my goals faster. When upping Cardio stops working then I will completely switch my diet.
All coupled with resistance training, of course!
It's killing me I can't do HIIT though...

hay good work i would keep the cardio to a minimal then when you hit a wall up the cardio then if you hit a wall again add a fat burner, adjusting the diet should allways be the last thing you do, unless your adjusting it once per week as you lose weight, if you change the diet say in 8 weeks time it could have a massive affect on your body and you could end up dieting loads of muscle away.........either way you seem pretty motivated so props to you.....i rep back if i forget pm me and i will do it on recharge............
getting massive again :)
show time next year

Thanks for the advice though!
I'll buy some Coconut Oil tomorrow! Have you used it before?
I'm not sure if I should take them with my measurements weekly or fornightly. I'm slighty
swaying with fortnightly... What do you think?
Thanks everyone for the support!

How long are you going to follow it for?
Yeah, I'm feeling out the diet so far trying to see what I can and can't do, etc. I'm going to stick more to the original outline this week and try and follow it exactly.
Hahahaha, I don't get a cheat meal for another week yet!!!
*Drools at Angus Burger* lol
M1: 2 Eco Eggs + 2 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter.
M2: 120g Chicken Thigh + 100g Broccoli
M3: 120g Chicken Thigh + 50g Broccoli.
M4: 120g Chicken Thigh + 2 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
Once again I can't fit in M5. I'm just so full! Try and try again until you succeed!! Way too much PB today. It helps me hit my Macro's in both the Protein and Fat departments but still I'm not thinking it's good to have so much. This week I'm going to be really focused and strict. I want these results, I am seeing a little difference between now and almost 5 days ago. Just imagine 5 weeks away if I keep motivation and focus! Hell yes!!
5+ Hours of really active walking today. Jeez... Maybe cut that down too?
I NEED to make time for my bodyweight routine. I'll make that a key thing this week.
God, I love my GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL!! It's so freaken easy! I'm thinking of buying the massive one so I can just have a cook off day and keep the smaller one at work. Mwahahaha!! I don't really have cravings on this diet, but having said that I am almost hitting 2000+ calorie days sometimes, and it's all nutritious.
Energy is STILL pumping, but as I said before my body loves me when I don't do carbs. Keto is a lifestyle for me, it's just what gets my fire burning. Carbs make me angry and send me to sleep!! Skin is looking GREAT as well! It's definitely the FO + EPO combo in the morning! With the Salmon some days really does help.
I'm very pleased with how things are going but I feel like I have alot more to improve before I really start getting going with this. A week is almost up and I think I have almost sussed out everything I need to.
So now I can go hard!!

Wooo!! This is going great!!
Oh, I'm ditching the Peanut Butter and replacing it with the Coconut Oil!

Peanut butter binge!!
WTF did I do that for?
I don't even like Peanut Butter that much... Hahaha.
My first fall off the wagon for this log what 5 days in?
Mkkay, I thought about what I did long and hard and tried to come up with reasons why on earth I would do that... This is what I'm thinking:
1. I'm on my days off from work = Un-organised which leads to frustration and that lead me to the PB Jar?
2. I didn't plan the night before = I wasn't deadset in what I was eating today which meant I was in half a mind.
3. I want to run so bad = If I overeat I therefore have to go for a long run to make up for what I ate. *Subconsious mind doing it's dirty work* lol.
4. I didn't brush my teeth after my last meal of the day = Some weird thing I have to do to feel clean. Haha.
I think it was a mixture of these things and you know what?
It's okay... I'm still learning and feeling out this diet and it's only coming up to the end of the 1st week.
But here is my issue, I'm pretty sure I ate 4000+ calories today.
1. Intermittant Fast tomorrow and the next day making up for the surplus of calories and start fresh.
2. Continue on like it never happened and skip the next couple of cheat meals.
3. Meat and Egg Fast - Around 1,200 Calories.
4. Fat Fast - 80% Fat every meal around 1,200 Calories.
Personally I feel dirty, overfull and fat right now. I want to IF for the next 48 hours and start anew. It will give me time to think and plan the following weeks of this diet to make sure this doesn't happen again. Just to get back in my groove I had going.
Anyone against the idea of IF'ing to make up for it?

I would take option 2. Continue on.
Obviously you cheated for a reason? But punishing yourself for it, isn't going to make you want to keep to your diet, especially only 5 days in.
Give yourself a slap on the wrist, and plan better next time. I find on my days off work are the easiest to slip up, sometimes I even pre-prepare my meals, so I know that what I will eat will be right.The journey starts with the first step:
11-03-2009, 12:40 PM #26
Are you following any type of plan atm?
Funny enough, this morning I got on the scales and I LOST WEIGHT! Also looking much leaner all around.
Despite Fitday saying 4000+ calories...
Okay, I'm thinking this happened:
1. The water that fills up in your fat cell that happens when you diet down, I had like a 're-reed' and my body flushed the water out of the fat cells.
2. I still kept under 30g net carbs, it was just Protein and Fat I was munchin on and my body obviously needed more then I was giving it despite almost hitting 2000 Calories daily. (All that walking, I suppose.)
Okay, as thenewmrsj recommended I'm just going to stick to the original plan and sacrifice my cheat meal next week!
Today will go as follows:
M1: 1x Horley's Ripped + 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
M2: 1-2 x HB Eco Eggs + 3 Egg Whites.
M3: 1x Horley's Ripped + 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
M4: 170g Chicken Thigh + 200g Cauliflower + 100g Broccoli.
M5: 1x Horley's Ripped.
Wow, I'm pretty lucky to have dropped weight after that. I thought it was going to be like a 2kg gain or something like that!
Our bodies work in strange ways sometimes....

Yes its called the "freak out before the wedding plan".
Haha no, just controlling my calories and doing 3 heavy lifting sessions a week, and 3 x HIIT sessions. Its really working, I just wish that I had started earlier. Never thought there was such a huge correlation between exercise and diet, until I started logging it on fitday and on bb.com
Its pretty easy for me to maintain this style of eating actually now - its just a lot of pre planning meals, and being a bit more prepared than I normally am.
Im sticking to 1300 - 1400 cals most days, no more than 100g carbs. I still seem to have some ketosis symptoms at this level of carbs, so I'm pretty happy with that. I guess my body was just used to eating so much carbs! But am looking to do a more keto style when I get into it hardcore when we're back from honeymoon.The journey starts with the first step:
11-03-2009, 04:26 PM #28
P.S. You might need your cheat meal next week to restore your glycogen levels in muscle. Otherwise your workouts might be crap. Just see how you feel - as long as you don't go over in cals - a "carb up" should be fine.The journey starts with the first step:
11-04-2009, 02:26 AM #29
HIIT is GREAT! I'm struggling not to do it on this plan! lol It's amazing how one compliments each other, and it feels great when you hit the sweet spot when you have them both completely zoned together!
Nawww! It's going to be so lovely for you! I'm sure you are going to look absolutley STUNNING when your big day arrives!
Have you made a Log? I wanna follow yours now!
