Today is day 10. As of day 7 I had lost 9 lbs. Started 232, 223 at day 7. Cravings for food throughout the day have mostly gone away except for when it gets closer to dinner time, hunger gets very strong about an hour and a half after my afternoon snack shake. I chew gum and it helps. I started using all chocolate shakes, but have now added banana mixed in and it kinda tastes like the chocolate pudding and bananas you mix together at most chinese buffets. I added instant coffee to my morning shake this morning and it tastes awesome.
A couple days I had to eat subway for lunch and made sure I only ate what calories I had left at dinner on those days. I have plenty of energy at workout time. It is hard for me to not run, so I only run for about 10 minutes at a slow pace and walk the rest of the time at a slight incline. I am going to weigh myself every 7 days and do measurements at day 28. Also, no alcohol at all during these 28 days. If you have to go out to eat, Applebees has a great menu with items under 500 calories that taste great if you do go out to eat with family or friends.
I am a 33 year old male. Started at 232 lbs. 6’3". I would love to be around 210-215.
