at first, english is not my first language, so please bare with me.
A little background about me:
I am a guy, 21 years old and at the beginning of 2012 I decided to lose weight, because I was very obese, and hated they way I looked and felt, at that time my weight was around 300lbs, and my height was/is 5',8/177cm. So far I have lost 110lbs, so my weight right now is around 200lbs, but I am not happy yet, my goal is to get to a somewhat low bodyfat, which I can be comfortable with (maybe 15% or less?I don't know yet), so I am thinking weight wise I should get to about 150lbs.
Why did I choose PSMF?
I just want to get done with dieting as fast as possible, and reach a physique that I can be happy with, and PSMF seems perfect for that. I read tons of stuff about it (really TONS, from science to logs and also the book by Lyle Mcdonald), and I decided this is the way to go for me.
I am actually in the diet since the 29th december, but I had a "mini-cheat" yesterday, basically a few drinks at new years, but only that, nothing bad to eat or anything.
So this is my start data,
I eat about 120gr of protein, in form of casein shakes, meat, fish etc., so the calories are around 500-600.
120gr does not seem much, but I should mention, I do not lift weights, I only play soccer twice a week, so I think this amount is ok(1,5 - 1,7gr per kg of lbm is recommended), especially since my body still has lots of fat reserves.
I might do clean refeeds, when the progress is stalling.
I will also take a multivitamin, fish oil, and calcium.
I plan on doing this diet until I reach a bodyfat which I am somewhat happy with, after that I plan on switching to keto, to maybe lose the last few pounds(depends on what body fat i have), but even when I reached my goal, I will stay keto/low-carb afterwards, because I do MUCH better without carbs, in every aspect. (I am very interested in this topic, read a lot of stuff about it, and I think keto/low-carb will be a lifestyle for me)
Why am I doing this log?
I think this log will keep me motivated, and that is a big reason why I am doing it. And of course its always nice, to talk to people about this, getting their input, and just not feeling so "alone" on this whole diet thing, and I can also improve my english.
I will log my weight every 1 or 2 weeks, tell you how I am feeling on this diet, and maybe some personal stuff.
I also made pictures, and I will upload them, when I finished this diet, so that I can have before/afters.
Thanks to everyone that will be reading, and I hope my english is not too bad!
