I'm dropping weight much faster than expected. I eat 2 meals of chicken thighs and potatoes, total of 2.5-3 lbs chicken and 1.5-2 lbs potatoes, with 2-4 bananas as a snack. That's probably 2000 to 2500 cals a day which is a big deficit for me, but no hunger as of yet. 3x a week with 0 cardio yet other than a 6 mile hike last week. Will post progress pics in a few days.

Thanks man. Gonna keep updating. Been about a month so far and I'm happy with the progress. Scale reads 210 to 212 ish vs 228 to 230 a month ago, at least 5 to 7 lbs of water and fluff there.

As far as diet goes..I drink an energy drink or two in the morning (usually Bang or rockstar), eat lunch and dinner (2.5 lbs of chicken thighs- usually between 2.3 and 2.8 just depends on what size the store has) with some yellow potatoes. Not sure how much potatoes tbh, I guess I'll go thru a 5 lb bag in roughly 2-3 days...I'll eat a couple bananas pre workout and if I'm hungry between meals. Couple times a week ice cream. And probably roughly a dozen servings of alcohol a week (socially)...reckon close to 3k cals on the highest day and as low as 2.2k ish on light ones. Still haven't done gym cardio yet.

Other stuff: trt test, calcium, d3, fish oil, creatine, beta alanine, 5htp/mg for sleep

Things that I'm doing that help my adherence

-very limited food choices. Will add some stuff like spinach and eggs/liver down the road to get more nutrients.
-skip breakfast: 2 meals a day with snacks is effortless
-busy: lots of overtime due to quarter end, distracted
-alcohol: I dont drink by myself intentionally but I found having some wine or liquor makes me not want more bananas or treats for the night
-not worrying about minutae- I eyeball my calories but not giving myself a headache eating 250g p ot 70g f..
-ignoring scale: semi truth- I'll step on it when I'm home sometimes but haven't written down numbers in a while

Checked in at 209 two days ago. Had a lax going out day yesterday, with pizza, beer, ben n Jerry's, whiskey etc. Eyeballed about 3800 cals which is highest dat in 6wks. Improved leanness in shoulder/back and other places. Will take some progress soon.

Dropped to 208.6 this morning

Gonna add couple small changes.

Been finishing my workouts in under 45 mins (U/L 3x a week with 2-3 sets/group) so I'll add a 20 min walk or some erg at the end.

Also going to add some spinach to my meals for the micronutrients and either shredded cheese or avocado for some fat, and some milk protein I got left over for calcium.

This has been the most effortless calorie restriction yet.

Jesus had a harsh Monday. Ended puking my guts out before dinner ..possibly the most voluminous puke including college frat parties..and have barely ate since then..a little Gatorade and a donut. Thinking of getting one of those rotisserie chickens or some shrimp and sauce for dinner need something palatable since I have a high fever on top of no appetite. Oh well just gonna aim to get 200g protein daily and an ice cream pint till I get my appetite back

Leg curl: 1x+1 rest pause
Standing calf: 2x+1 rest pause
Ab wheel: 2x
Seated calf: 1x+ 2 rest pause

Another good workout despite iffy sleep.

Weighted chins: 2x
Hammer bench: 3x
Hammer low row: 3x
Incline barbell: 2x
Laterals: 4x
Rear delt: 2x
Ez curl: 2x
Db oh tri ext: 2x
Db hammer: 2x

Just about an hour.

The 30g carb with caffeine pre and intra workout is a nice combo.

Hovering around 205. Actually started to weigh and track, although I'll eat some of my chick's food and drink a bit of alcohol here and there on top of that (untracked, but fairly trivial amounts)

I started being in a deficit the weekend before the 4th of July so this is 8 weeks down. BW starting at 230 ish (really probably mid 220s without bloat/etc), to 204-205 now (probably around 210 filled out). So down about 2 lbs a week avg for 2 months. My hunger, especially night time hunger has been ramping up and my weights are feeling heavier, perfect signs to go on a diet break for 2 weeks. Aiming for 3000 ish cals now (might bump up a bit if weight keeps dropping), roughly 35-40% p/c each, 25-30% f. Workouts are still U/L. Dropping my gym cardio; I go on a 6 mile+ hike with my partner on Sundays. Will update with photos and stuff in a few days when weight has spiked up.
