Default 2 weeks in, going well but some slip ups and questions

Evening all, hope we're all doing well. Was just hoping I could point some (stupid) questions out there just to get some feedback from the more experienced members of the forum.

Category 3 25 year old guy here, I've been running this diet since the 12th and, as of my last weigh-in on the 23rd, was down 3 kilos exactly (6.6 lbs). I've been keeping protein pretty high (120g minimum) and am now aiming for a 150g minimum to ensure LBM isn't melting away as well - as a fatter bloke am I right in saying that it's likely not too much of a concern that I lost that much initially, since there'd be a good deal of water weight as well as actual fat/LBM that would be lost in that time?

Another question I had was about the limit on diet soda and caffeine, but, having just re-read the book to find the restrictions I was sure I'd read this diet had for them, have now found that the former, and coffee, are allowed pretty much to your heart's content. Great! Would this also apply to sugar-free energy drinks? Have to admit that I'm quite partial to them but not sure if they're a step too far into sweeteners and god-knows-what-else that might interfere with the diet.


Lastly, carbs and free meals. I do enjoy being able to have fattier cuts of meat (just about everything is fattier than 5% fat beef and chicken breast!) as well as veggies seasoned with oil and so on, but I'm a bit confused about carbs. Rice and sweet (as well as non-sweet) potatoes are a big staple in my family meals, which I try to have at least 1 of a week, as well as just about any restaurant meal, if I'm socialising. To what degree would carbs there need to be limited? Can I have that serving of fries or potatoes that comes with a burger, or the rice and sweet potatoes at a family meal like a normal person, or do I still have to avoid them due to aiming to stay within keto? I supposed I know the answer but would appreciate some clarification if at all possible. THanks!

3 kilos / 6.6 lbs of weight in 11 days is not at all unusual for this diet. Most of it is water.

Coffee, diet soda, and sugar-free energy drinks are fine, assuming the latter are 0 calorie or close to it. Water is probably better for other reasons, but if flavored drinks help you stick with the diet, fine.

The free meal is supposed to be a chance for you to eat like a normal human being (note: not a glutton) for one meal a week. That usually means carbs. If it were me, I'd avoid fries in favor of a starchy carb with much less fat, because you need to get in better habits if you want to maintain fat loss after the diet.

RFL isn't a keto diet.

I cosign everything the wise bstrong said!

You definitely don't need to worry about a big drop the first week -- I lost 5 kilos on week 1 of my current RFL run and I started at 68 kilos. I can swing water weight like a champ

I can get a little dizzy on RFL if I don't get enough fluids and electrolytes, and I definitely drink a LOT more liquid if it's diet soda than if it's water. I can't help it, I think water is gross on its own

"What is going on with you?"
"Oh, Amy freaked out 'cause I told her I never drink water so now she's making me drink eight glasses a day. It's, like -- there's water in soda, there's water in coffee, there's little pools of water on pizza!"
"That's grease, Jake."
"Well, it's wet, isn't it?"
