220lbs @ 10% BF by May 2023

It was way more work in May & June, 250lbs, eating 4500 cals per day, 400 grams of protein, eating every 2 hours starting at 6 am.

I’m happier to eat once per day.

Soon I’ll start fasting for 48-96 hours again. Once my progress slows.

I agree it sucks mich worse to force feed, but the strength you have on that low of calories is mind boggling.

Got a nice V-Taper going on , but GOD DAMN your delts in the right picture look insane.

96 Hours is insane, You thinking of doing a fast a week when progress stalls or have it on an alternating basis?

I’ll have to look at what I did earlier this year.

If I remember correctly what worked best for me was only eating one meal on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. Tried fasting over the weekend, doesn’t work, I’m home and watching and smelling what my family is eating.

Different/easy when you’re gone working all day anyway and just skip dinner.

As soon as I stop losing 2 lbs per week on average, I’ll start. It’s called the Snake Diet.

This would be impressive 8 out of 10 times but reading this with…

Makes it more than impressive! You are litterally lifting grizzly bear weight with the fuel of 10yr old girl!!!

I am a fatty. I ate my food in advance.

It is now stored on my body in my thighs, butt, and stomach.

If I need extra fuel, I need to draw from that.

What benefits do you see from these man? I just did the Google-maths and found out my workplace is 10 miles from my home so I’m thinking of walking it every so often.

I don’t know that there is any benefit. I only know why I do it.

Heard some youtube science about how after the first 45 minutes of LISS all your glycogen has been used and presuming you are fasted your body begins to burn fat for fuel. No idea if true or not.

I’m in the habit of getting up between 3 and 4 am training then taking a 3-hour walk.

Why I make this a habit.

  1. Discipline.
  2. It is impossible to get down on yourself when you know you are disciplined and powerful.
  3. I work in a food oasis. Potlucks. Sales reps bring pastries and donuts daily. It is much easier to not have any, knowing one donut can undo all the work I’ve done so far today.
  4. Goals. I said I was walking 250 miles this month, this is the pace required to crush it. I expect 30,000 steps everyday. Much easier to hit them when I have 25,000 by 8am and only need to take a couple more walks the rest of the day.
