    Toddbz - Glad I could help with some motivation

    ctrl - Thanks bro! I am still checking my weight and bf% with a Tanita scale. Not super accurate so I do it every night and then I average out each week. Done this way it seems to be right on the money. Actually calipers aren't any more accurate. To get a better reading I would have to do hydrostatic weighing or DEXA. I ain't got that kind o cash every week!!

    As far as cardio check a few post back as I just changed my intensity a bit this week. As for frequency, I was getting in 4-5 days per week between 45-60 minutes. Now I'm at 6-7 days a week 45-60 minutes. Weight training is 5 days somewhere between 60-90 minutes.

    Yep that scale is off for sure!! As long as it's the same guy with the same 6 sites under the same conditions (time of day, same day every week etc.) thenit's about as accurate as you'll get without going DEXA or hydro.

    Quick little update:

    Last week I upped my fats back to their original levels because I saw such a drop in strength. Well I definately "feel" better and seem to be better during training. HOWEVER, I skimmed the 194 mark 2 days last week and last night I saw 197! Maybe tonight will be different but either way I will play it out til the end of the week and then see what needs to be done. Love to feel stronger but the main goal right now is that 8% mark... must... stay.... focused...

    With the increase in fats could the 3lb be from glycogen in the muscle? Totally going off memory here (sometimes a scary thing for me lol) but I believe Dave said that in ketosis that essential fats not only help repair muscle tissue (of course those fats do that in any diet), and they also store as glyocgen in the muscle. Which in turn is a good reason why your mammoth strenght is coming back.
    Remember, bigger weights=more calories burned. Kind of fun that way.

    Could be I suppose. I'll have to see what my averages are at the end of this week. So far (looking at my numbers) it's tough to tell. I know I feel stronger with a bit more energy, but I also don't feel as lean (not that 15% is lean). Time will tell. Tomorrow I got a good 45 minutes on the tred in the am and then a big ass arm day in the afternoon and then a big ass cheat meal at On The Border (I go there often huh!). Just can't get enough of those chips and salsa!

    I love their sauce covered burrito thing. Probably takes a year off my life every time I have one. lol
    I guess you could also play with your cheat meal to see if there's a drop. Maybe one every 10 days instead of weekly?
    This weeks numbers should give you some sort of indication. Still droppin though bro. That's the part that really counts.

    Oh yeah mang! Just got back from my meal. B&J Fish Food waitin in the freezer! Haha. I thought about playin with the cheat meal but it's been working so well WITH it, why change. Besides out of everything I could adjust I think that would yeild the least impact since it is only that one meal. That and the sudden surge in calories really cranks up the metabolism. I gotta go eat that stuff! I'll put up this weeks numbers in the morning sometime.

    K, I know hwta I'm gonna change this week.
    No maore 2 Tbsp NPB in my shakes (3 a day).
    I am going to use 1 Tbsp of oil instead. That keeps the fat count the same but drops 90 calories per shake! That's 270 for the day.
    Perhaps that will produce a nice change.

    saw the first vid, lookin good man, good big muscle!

    in regards to the peanut butter, i took this approach:

    starting with 1 spoon at a time only. if the weight falls off quick i will remain with 1 spoon. if i feel i need 2 spoons i will only do it when i feel it is essential.

    keep us updated. i am only up to day 6! i pissed out 6 pounds of fluid the last few days.

    Thought about reducing the amount of PB but that would drop my fats a lot. By switching from PB to oil, I keep the same amount of fat but drop calories. More subtle of a change (which I think is all I need).

    Good luck with the diet. I assume you are following Daves too.

    You switching to flaxseed oil, fish or waa?
    Yeah I would hate to have to change the only blissful meal of the week that you get.
    270 calories daily is a bunch. Translates to 1890 cals/week. That more than 1/2lb less right there. Good thinking on your part to think up that one.
    Legs tonight brother!!

    Macadamia nut oil and olive oil.
    Very close as far as mono/poly. Except mac tastes a whole lot better!
    I also reduced my Almonds from 2oz down to 1oz. That is usually only 1 meal out of the day though. Still should help a bit over a week however. My big concern is feeling run down and weaker. Perhaps that is just part of dieting though . O-well. Gotta keep going as I'm only about half way to my goal so far. Bummer as it looks like I got at least another 10-12 weeks before I am where I want. That puts me at the end of Sept. begining of Oct!!! It'll be worth it as long as I hold onto the muscle that I have now.

    Patience is definitely the key. You're doing a great job. Keep your eye on the prize!
    Just think of all the knowledge that you are learning. There's just no replacement for that.
    BTW my legs are wrecked today! lol
