re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Looks like some good meal prep 7's.

My diet is terrible - this thread may help me out a lot.

Well, it's not terrible, it's likely better than 90% of people. But I don't track very well at all; I just make sure I'm getting the right amount of calories for what I'm trying to do fitness-wise at the time. And I definitely don't count macros. I try not to eat crap though. It boils down to me just not being good at food I think.

Not going to try to break down my whole diet but I will look for tips in here!

First question: couscous. My wife has been using it a lot recently and it's soooo much better (tasting) than rice. My main carb source used to be brown rice, now it's couscous/beans. Good/bad/indifferent?

For health, its a great sub. Watch gut health though.

For fatloss, see first post, once calories and protein are accounted for, doesn't matter where the rest of the calories come from.

So track weekly calories and daily protein to make sure you are meeting your goals.

Now if you want to eat clean for health reasons great, I also suggest lower carb with carbs only around workouts unless your goal is gaining muscle.

I have posted on this board a few times now. Starting weight was 266, started low carb/keto diet about 7 weeks ago and am down to 241 as of this morning.

Weights twice a week and uphill walking cardio 3 times a week. Really just getting started on this journey but have cut out alcohol M-F and doing my best to only drink low carb booze drinks during the weekend.

Goal weight is around 200. Not sure how long it will take me but I'd like to be there by January 1st, 2019. Diet is pretty much Protein/MCT smoothie after workout at lunch and big salad for dinner while watching salad ingredients. Fasting from dinner to post workout lunch shake.

first congrats on the progress you have made, be proud of it as thats a lot of weight to take off.

second enjoy the keto diet a little man . Cut the booze during the week and enjoy a big ole steak twice a week. Thats whats great about the keto diet, you get to enjoy amazing things like steak and brisket.

40 pounds in 6 months is doable but 25 lbs or so before the end of the year. I say that so you don't start doing anything drastic towards the end to make a certain weight.

what program are you following lifting wise?

If you stall out, do this, go to maintenance or right above maintenance calories for about 2-3 weeks adding in carbs slowly over that time focusing on carb quality, after that go on the keto diet called the get shredded diet and follow the principles in there laid out by john bernardi. Essentially its:

Cals- BW*10
Fat- 55-60%
Carbs- 10-15%
Protein-30%

Get Shredded Diet

Thank you sir

I definitely do. I typically add steak/tuna/chicken to salads, etc.. One of my favorite dishes is at a local place and is very close to Chicken Bryan from Caracas. Grilled chicken with goat cheese. I am not 100% sure I can drop the 41 remaining pounds in 6 months but I'll be working to get close.

As for weight routine, I just kind of wing it in the gym with routines I used to do many years ago. Basically, at least two chest exercises (bench/dumbbell bench), dips/pullups, a few shoulder lifts. Probably not a great program but it wears me out and I can see differences in strength and muscle tone.

Lazy was a big wuss and ate at 11:30. I held out until noon, devoured the burrito bowl shredded chicken i posted above, to large tortillas and an avocado. Couldn't finish all the rice/beans/corn and chicken but close enough.

I am absolutely miserable now, but atleast I won't order 6 bread puddings when i go to landrys tonight.

My dad did 40 days a few years ago. It was for religious reasons instead of health, and I was very against the idea because hes insulin dependent, but he made it through it. I'm glad I didn't have to live with him, and felt bad for my mom.

Might have been fun to see the faces at the table if you had.

Did a shake this morning early, then messed around and didn't eat anything else until 12:30, my fasting window typically starts at 3pm. ate la caretta's for lunch, al pastor mexican style tacos with no tortilla's, and tortilla soup with cheese only. I'd normally steer clear of the pineapples, but since cal intake will be really low today then I don't figure it was enough to do any real damage.

You'll love this: I'm going on vacation for a week starting Saturday.. gonna try to not be too much of a fatty but let's be honest.. im hungry.


I feel a lot more successful in recent months - I have had a mindset shift and am taking my time, being more consistent and allowing my eating and exercise to work. My #1 change has been weighing much less often.. I've figured out that weighing too often has been my #1 enemy. I was weighing every single day and getting impatient. One or two weeks and then getting frustrated, blowing up the diet and/or switching diets all the time, not allowing anything to work. Also exercising more intensely and going 4 days/week. People hate on CrossFit but I've never been so consistent with hitting the gym and enjoying myself.

It's easy to poke fun at me because of the constant excuses over the years, and the up-and-down weight loss/weight gain I've put myself through. I have been fighting a lot over the years, lose some, win some.. ultimately I'm winning, regardless of what anyone here thinks, just because of the fact that I've managed to not get 400 pounds again. I deal with a serious food addiction and the brain of a 400lb dude, a have been dealing fricked up thyroid for a couple of years now. I'm at 200mcg of synthetic t4 now, hopefully it's under control.



Anyway, clearly that joke got to me more than I'd like to admit. Here's to the next 50 pounds I want to lose

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Yea my mind broke before my body. Started getting some serious brainfog at work and was mixing simple things up. Fast ended up only being 60 or so hours instead of the planned 69.

I’ve had about 1300 calories so far today and am pretty damn full.

Steak, sprouts, and sweet potato tonight.

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
I guess I’ll start posting in this thread, too. I’m starting a diet on Monday. Meals are already prepped this week, so the REAL diet starts on Monday. I’ve gained a lot of strength over the years and have added some big time bulk. I have a pretty wide chest and big, strong legs. Unfortunately, my fat loss has been minimal. So, I’m going go adhere to a strict plan and shed some of this winter coat.

Age:26
Height: 5’8”-9”
Weight: 230 lbs
Body Fat %: 30-35%


I have no expectations of being a shredded body builder, but I think I can achieve a physique that would make me happy. I will try to post what I eat and my progress every few weeks. I already post my weekly workout progress in the Daily Strength thread, but I might post that here too with my diet stuff. I’m pretty exicted for this. It’s finally time to look like the beast I feel like.

ETA: Shoutout to lsu777 for the hookup on an awesome LP and the diet plan. The LP is proving to be awesome and, I’m looking forward to the diet.

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Just remembered, the diet I have you is a carb cycling that is optimal. Fat loss does not always have to be optimal nor linear. So if for some reason you fall off the wagon one day be or one meal, fine. Suck it up and get back on the wagon making sure your weekly calories overall are in a deficit and that you get protein in no matter what.


So coming off the 65 hour fast I had 3100 calories total and about 450g carbs. I'll go low carb until Sunday and start fasting Saturday night after dinner until Tuesday night post workout.

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
How long does it take for your body to adjust to eating in deficit? Even thought I’m not counting calories this week, I’m pretty sure I’m in deficit.

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Your body doesn't, but your body isn't the one freaking out. It's your brain. And there are no real studies that show this as it's prolly an individual thing and depends on there depth of the caloric restriction.

But in most cases a week or two.
