    actually i've been eating mostly veggies as the carbs, which is a lot of veggies (and thus i dont ever eat the full requisite 30g). i've been shitting pretty well. i think caffeine also helps as it disrupts absorption of water when mass is in the large intestine.

    I'm not actually doing a PSMF at this time. But that is my experience.

    3700 calories??? Jeebus. How heavy are you? And what is your physical activity level?

    Well, it's in there, buried, but I'm 5'9 145 lbs and I do SS / Stronglifts which is a 3 day a week strength training program that has you perform squats every time. All my lifts are nearly at failure all the time, which I'm not sure is a good idea, but that's where I am with it.

    Of those 3700 - almost a fourth is from milk, which I cut back on when I don't work out.

    I struggle with the same shock you are expressing sometimes. My girlfriend isn't sure what to think. But as soon as I started drinking milk to bump my calories, my lifts began going up again and I was able to hold on to a bit more body weight. I seem to have temporarily plateaued again, but I'm hoping that is fatigue from a really excellent 8 weeks.

    I had gotten to 140 a couple months ago and almost every time I would weigh myself I would be 135 again. I was 150 last week, but then I stopped eating beans for 3-4 days and lost another 5 lbs.

    Off day, 12 hr night shift.

    1cu whole milk, 1cu rolled oats, handful dried cranberries / walnuts / almonds / sesame seeds
    1cu trader joe's low sodium vegetable juice
    150+300+??300+50 = 850 cal

    3 servings 4% milkfat large curd cottage cheese
    120x3=360

    1 lb chicken, 2x whole wheat tortillas, 2 T olive oil mayo, squirts sriracha, cu spinach across 2 meals
    ??480+300+150 = 1050

    1can trader joe's cuban style beans
    3.5x100 = 350 cal

    1cu whole milk before bed
    1x150 = 150 cal

    probably 40 cal in supplements
    daily total ~2800 cal

    It'll be exactly the same tomorrow, also an off day, and work out Saturday afternoon.

    You're 5' 9", 145# and you DL 245x5s? -_-; dude what is wrong with me


    Today I had 1 ECG stack (forgot to bring my drugs baggie), 3 g EPA/DHA, 600 mg calcium, 1 multivitamin

    I had 3 chicken thighs (I had thought previously that chicken thighs were OK, but I don't think they're allowed on a PSMF) (48g protein, -_-; 30g fat)

    8 oz lean turkey deli meat (36g protein, 4.5 g fat)

    6 oz fish (42g protein, 6g fat)

    3/4 serving ON casein (17 g protein)

    2 cup fennel salad (12g carbohydrates)


    137 g protein, 41g fat, 12g carbohydrates.

    Chicken thigh was killer. Need to switch to breast. Also I think I'll go eat some more food right now.


    For exercise, today's my day off


    Right now I feel pretty good. I had a physical today which was pre-requisite to start firefighting training and I got like 112/62, 64bpm (after 200mg caffeine), above average ventilation rate.

    I think 3% of 155 = 4.7 pounds of fat or so, but I guess I'll gain some weight with the crossfit warmup. -_-; This is most probably stupid (2 days since I started this, but I've following it in some form for a while now), but I think I can see my abs a lot more clearly.


    However, I am pretty hungry all day. I think the crisis occurs near meal time where I have bad cravings for bread. -_- oh god bread.

    If you are down to 12g carbs / day two days in a row I am not surprised that you see your abs more clearly given the description you have provided.

    I know you said you want to get to single digit bf in the first post, but you didn't really explain your motivation for doing that?

    Same as yesterday but no beans and yogurt instead of cottage cheese. I get to sleep 8 hrs tomorrow and then hit the gym. I always have high hopes for the first day of the week. I get excited and nervous. Will probably not push for a PR on squats, but I think I might go for a PR on bench. I'll try to bench my BW from 1 yr ago!

    Accountability? Be accountable to yourself.

    If you want something - do it. Tying your success to strangers on the internet is a bad crutch.

    Meh. If this helps people reach their goals then there is nothing wrong with it. Much better then not doing anything at all.

    I'm sorry, but I'm not as perfect as you are. Yes I need a crutch to walk, but I'd rather walk than not.


    Motivation is comfortableness? I know it's not as strong of a motivation as a weigh in or a wedding, but I feel uncomfortable. I had low bf% when I was in track and field and I want to regain that feeling.


    Today was a very very shitty day. One of my friends passed away and I've been dealing with a lot emotion.

    I started out OK.

    3 eggs, 6 oz mushrooms in the morning

    2 chicken breasts, 4 tablespoons of chickpeas for lunch


    but then all went to hell and I had half a pack of cigarettes, half a beer, a pearl milk tea, some chips, some oreos, some of those chocolate chip cookies that come in a blue package. I dunno how many calories that is. Maybe 800.

    Did not do "Crossfit" warm up regimen.

    Lyle says that for fatter people incorporating a rest meal? I forget what he calls it, is a good idea. I guess it'll just take longer for single digit bf%
