Started RP Diet today to lose some body fat..
Using the RP app. First 2 weeks is free then $14.95/month.

Starting weight: 200lbs
Goal weight: 185-187lbs

Daily macros: 195g P, 75g F, 125-185g C

Carbs fluctuate on workout/non-workout days. 125 today and either 160 or 185 the rest of the week.

The app has a barcode scanner just like my fitness pal.

Breakfast was close to what I’ve normally been having: egg cups (whites with chopped kale & tomatoes), some bacon, chocolate milk and 1 slice of bread to get the carbs to 30g.

Meal times are set for you and you’re supposed to eat within 30 min of those times.

My final meal is scheduled at either 9:45 or 10:15pm.

Weighing MWF and inputting into the app so it can adjust macros as it goes.

Not counting cals, just macros.

We have a huge thread on RP

It works just have to stick with it

Your weight will fluctuate but weight loss isn’t linear so don’t get discouraged. Most people see body comp changes pretty quickly

I lost 9lbs in 5 weeks, and have been keeping it off the last few weeks since ending the diet

Yeah, it works, but it's tedious work to get the right macros at the right time, especially the low fat meals.

Its a lot easier if you are fine eating the same thing over and over

Running fat loss this time for me was much easier to figure out meals

I think the strength diet helped me figure out meal combos better bc I was downing everything

I would have kept going but moving has caused me to not eat as healthy so the last week I been intermittent fasting.

Haven’t hit the gym since Monday and probably won’t again until late next week

I just smoked 5lbs of chicken and roasted Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes.

Don’t mind eating this 2x per day, but 3 will get boring very fast.

It starts out so nice, you feel like you're eating so much




Then they start taking your macros away. It's pretty aggressive, especially later on. Towards the end of a 12 week cycle you'll probably be eating nothing but lean meat and veggies

I’ve been sitting right at 200lbs for months.

I started the RP stuff Saturday morning and have stuck to the macros the last two days. I was outside a good bit yesterday, and, this morning, I weighed in at 196.

I was in Orange Beach last weekend and on the beach all day and it didn’t affect my weight, so no idea why the big drop between Thur/Fri and this morning.

Weigh-in’s on MWF as soon as I wake up.

I thought about starting back up, but the diet is so rigid. For example, sometimes ill workout Saturday mornings and decide to walk 9 holes of golf later that evening. Its a pain in the arse to add that second "training session" and it changes what and when you are supposed to eat. The meal prep is pretty tedious already so changing it up is just a pain.

I was going to the gym early, but changed up plans and reset to a lunch workout.

I spent 15 min remeasuring my breakfast and lunch meals this morning.

If I occasionally add something like walking/playing golf, I’ll just leave it as is and not add it in.

Yeah walking is fine, but playing golf, at least for me, is a really big calories expenditure. If you are running fat loss, you're going to be at like a 1k or more deficit for that day.

Am I running those holes?

Just ride and avoid the confusion.

Even if I ride I still burn like 400 calories, but I like to walk a lot of the times. 400 unaccounted for plus a workout plus fat loss that's a pretty big deficit. The only point I was trying to raise is how the diet is inflexible if plans change. Even if thats as little as workout time change, much less an added session or something like that.

I just dumped my meals into MFP to compare the macros and see total cals.

Macros are close, and total cals are around 2,000/day.

One week in and down ~3 lbs.

I have hit my macros for the most part, except for yesterday. Today will be similar due to golf at 1:30, but I'll try to stay close.

Bouncing between 6-8 pounds down right now.

I’ll probably be down to 186-188 in another 2 weeks.

re: Started RP Diet today to lose some body fat..
I’m eating a lot of fresh fruit for carbs: peaches, nectarines, granny smith apples and strawberries, and hummus & avocados for fats.

Most of my protein comes from chicken and egg whites.

I’ll have whole grain bread for additional carbs where needed and fairlife chocolate milk for protein.

Greens: baked green beans.
