I didn't realise there was a keto board so have moved this from the general nutrition log to here.
This is the first time I have completed one of these logs but given the
intensity of the programme I have selected I think it is worth sharing my
journey. I am going to be following Lyle McDonald's UD 2.0 as closely as
I can. Here is an update for my first three days:
Monday and Tuesday:
Low calorie, low carb and depletion training
Breakdown of Macros Monday:
Breakdown of Macros Tuesday:
Depletion training was a killer especially on Tuesday, I really struggled to get through the workout. I felt that I should have taken the advise and used machines rather than free weights to ramp up the speed. Despite feeling sick, dizzy and light-headed throughout I really feel I can get even more out of myself next week by moving to machines for this workout. Too much time spent changing plates. I did as the book said and went through the circuit twice with 2 sets of 15 for each exercise:
ab workout for warm up
bench press/cable cross over
hack squat/stiff leg deadlift
bicep cable curls/zottermans
Decided to go and do some light cardio. Did 20 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the bike at a moderate pace. Quite miss HIIT so might try and find some time for this next week but not sure how much energy I will have for it.
My macros for Wednesday:
I should have added more protein at the end of the day. I will keep a closer eye on this and use that protein to go take cals up to 1200 at least to ensure not losing muscle mass.
Eating the way I have been for last three days and will post all the details later.
Went for a run this morning which lasted about 20 minutes once again at a
moderate pace. Felt like an old man trying to get up the hill on his
zimmer. It was also colder than I expected and I hadn't wrapped up been freezing all day as a result. Really looking forward to carb up later.
Weight on Monday prior to starting 198lbs sitting at 192lbs this morning (Thursday) - not sure about bf don't trust my own readings. I realise that some of this is water weight and I will go up a lot during carb load. Will also get some progress pictures uploaded at start of next week - think I took a starting point one but will wait until comparisons can be made before uploading.
Any comments or observations are most welcome.
