Alright, I'm thinking it's time I start a log to keep track of my progress. I'm currently in my 4th week on a CKD. It's my first time trying out Keto and I am pleased with the results I've been getting. I prefer using this to cut over anything else, especially since I'm holding on to strength and mass but I'm sure it will go down a little once I get to a lower bf%. Can't forget about my taste-buds either, they're loving the food.
Started out Mar 1 at 226
Mar 7 / Week 1 - 218 (mostly water weight)
Mar 15 / Week 2 - 216
Mar 23 / Week 3 - 214
Mar 29 / Week 4 - 212
Total Loss = 14lbs
I've been taking pictures of my results every 2 weeks, they can be found in my BodySpace. I'm happy with the consistency I've been experiencing with the weight loss on this cut.
I didn't carb-up my first two weeks but when I did on my 3rd, it was more like a couple small meals, still low in carbs but def. over 100.
Last week however (Friday night and Saturday / March 23,24), I did a pretty dirty carb-up, I don't think I'll be doing that again because I felt like crap. I ate pizza, a double whopper with cheese, a mini cinnabun, 4 doritos locos supreme tacos from Taco Bell (really good!), cinnastix, a caramel empanada, sesame seed bagel with plain cream cheese, and a boston creme doughnut (That is pretty much everything I ate in the 20 something hours during my carb-up, technically not a lot of food for 1 and a half days but it could be cleaner). We'll see today if it had any effect on my progress (UPDATED).
One thing I haven't done yet, is a depletion workout at the end of the week. I workout pretty hard during the week and was figuring I wouldn't be needing to do a full body depletion but I'm going to give it a shot (since it's technically required) tomorrow and see how it goes.
Well, I'm off to the gym and when I get back I'll be putting up my typical weekly workout routine along with what I eat and macros.
Please feel free to comment, critique, ask questions, etc. I look forward to it.
