    That's when the body burns fat instead of carbs

    Soapbox on....

    Like everything that ends up getting the marketing people involved, there is an entire plan to be bought based a couple of grains of truth. Keto, like Adkins, Best for Life, Dr Oz, Dr Phil,,,,,,,, all have bits that can be used, but you have to weed through the marketing to get to the truths. Most, if not all of these, although they say they don't, just propagate diet yo-yo'ing. People going to one plan, maybe dropping some, going off it, gaining it back, find another plan,,,,,, IMO, just another fad/marketing ploy. Research some of the actual truths, incorporate some of the truths into a balanced plan, see what works for you, but nothing you do should be just to enable some short-term loss, it just leads to yo-yo'ing. Changes for life.

    Soapbox off...

    Losing weight has always been about calories in/calories out. To lose weight you need to be at a deficit. Many of these diets are gimmicks, but some people’s bodies respond better to different methods, such as no carb like Atkins. Many times coming off these diet styles will cause you to gain weight so you have to stay on them. A nutritionist can help you sort through the bs, and see if you need a special program or not. Track your food so you know what you’re eating with an app like MyFitnessPal and sticking to an eating plan with a cheat meal a week will help you achieve your goals and not go crazy. Tdeecalculator can help you find your baseline of calories, and you can tweak it from there:

    Weigh in day.

    Some of you might be happy to hear that I screwed up big time. Scale says I gained 4lbs in 1 week. Funny, I usually struggle to gain 1lbs a week while bulking. I think something is off with this new scale. But just in case I'm dropping 10% off my calories and seeing how it goes.

    How's everyone else's cut going?

    Stopped tracking macros and stuff since I basically eat the same stuff every week and stopped weighing myself daily. I got down to my cut weight of 183-185 and then got to my “normal” mode. 190 steady. Not so focused on losing weight now as I’m trying to build muscle. Drinking protein shakes now to help get the proteins in and seeing how wide I can get my back and chest. Once I up my weights, I’ll cut again and see how I look.

    To all the new guys, don’t give up. Once you make it a habit, it’s easy to stay in shape. It just becomes part of your daily routine.

    Key point. For me and my personality, it’s actually easier to do workouts daily than to figure out what days I “want” to go and how many, and give myself a chance to say “screw it”, maybe tomorrow.

    Dieting has made me one hell of a chef. That’s for sure.


    Driving through for fast food is so much easier lol

    Random struggles:

    On a maintenance/bulk phase. Not overly eating and not really cutting.

    About a month into it and oh my god I keep getting hungry. Like stomach growling hungry lol. Drinking a couple protein shakes a day too which is an addition from what I did while cutting.

    My stomach never growled while cutting anyways. But here I am. Starving. FML lol
