Been following this diet for around 2 and a half weeks - only just realised there is a training log forum. So far everthing has gone great, weighed in at 93kg (205lbs) on the first day and weighed in at 85kg today (189.5).
While i realise that my lack ofbefore pictures or measurments makes my contribution less valuable, i think those who lift will find my experience helpful as Ive yet to lose any strength (i have been testing maximal lifts while on the diet). So far I’ve noticed no strength loss at all in any of my main lifts (bench stable at 100 kg for 5, deadlift stable at 180kg for 5, yet to test squat) and PRs in new lifts such as the overhead squat, pullup and dip. Ive also been doing some of the greyskull 10 minute conditioning workouts too (burpees, KB swings etc), in order to help maintain my fitness and this has not seemed to impact recovery.
I’m hoping to get down to around 82kgs by the end of the transition period, but would be happy to be at 84, as this was the weight i started at before i began lifting seriously 4 months ago. Anyway, I’ll try and update this log as frequently as I can - documenting my strength gains (or losses) while posting my weight as it continues to fall!
