    Last Wednesday I finally started my diet and exercise training. I'm 20 years old and I weighed 212lbs. I started a ketogenic diet (low carb Atkins style diet) and I've followed it to a T. I also began HIIT training on the treadmill and using insanity DVDs. I also take lipo-6 black ultra concentrate. Yeah I know diet pills are bad but I love the energy and the way my metabolism runs on it. Anyway I weighed this morning for the 1st time since starting and I was at 199. A 13 lb loss in 5 days. Do I need to change something? My goal weight is around 175 but I expected a hard road to get it.

    yeah at first you will lose weight really fast then it will slow down, good luck and good job at working hard to keep your body weight down.

    keep us updated on how it goes, even though you lost 13 lbs in 5 days, the next week wont be the same.

    edit: i dont work in the health industry or anything, just lifted and read alot, so take the above with a grain of salt.

    But 13 lbs worth? I expected 3 or 4 lbs of water weight to come off quick but that seems like a bit much. :notsure:

    want to hear something crazy? 13 lbs is really not un healthy IMO, i lost 25 lbs in 6 days, started out at 180 ended at 155. all cause my gf of 2 years broke up with me.

    i felt tired and like shit, so that was un healthy for me, but you lost half of what i lost and you started out weight more. and you lost it in a healthy way. has anyone noticed yet?

    You're losing weight but it's all bad weight. You're keeping protein intake high so your body isn't consuming its own tissue and muscle, but instead it's turning to the fat reserves like it should. Your dedication is paying off and you found the ideal formula for your body to be its most efficient. It's also nice to be in your 20's when your metabolism is still really easy to boost. Take advantage of it and keep it up! Before you know it, your body will be at a new weight set point.

    agree, and i dont really think you should have a stopping point.

    maybe a point to where you stop taking diet pills and just going to the gym and lifting to get bigger.

    Wow that's crazy man. I'm trying to do this right. It just seemed drastic to me because I expected about 6 or 7 lbs of loss by now so I was like "oh shit" yeah I've had several people ask if I started a diet. But yeah I feel great tons of energy and a clear head. Which I put the cigarettes and booze away so that probably helped too.

    Nope. The only thing that pulled me out was time.

    It is a lot to loose in such a short time, but not uncommon. I started a similar low sugar (low carb type) diet last year and lost 18 pound in the first 2 weeks, then it slowed down to only about a couple pounds every week, and I am down to total 25 pounds total now, about 2 months later, and only lost 1 pound this last month. I guess I have reached a healthy balanced weight (and I have started to cheat a little on the sugar) but I am happy with where I am (199 lbs at 6'4")
    The important thing is to keep up the healthy lifestyle so that your body can adopt the eating style along with your metabolism, and you should be set for a long time.

    Good job and good luck.

    Good job for putting away the cigs and booze! That is good in itself. I would say instead of the diet pills, start moving towards a healthy eating habit. I just cut sugars out (soda, sweet tea, chocolates, sugared cereals). I eat healty - vegetables etc, but nothing different than before, I still have steak with some fat on it, potatoes every now and then etc. The important think is to do something that is sustainable. It does not help to go on a crash diet that you can't or don't want to keep up in the future, because you will just gain it back.
