I started the Cheater’s Diet combined with Meltdown training on November 11, weighing in at 172.2lb 17.1%. Today is November 15, and I’m weighing about 164.0lb 16.4%. Now, assuming the scale is correct, that means I’ve lost 8.2lb in FIVE DAYS, 5.7lb of it being LBM! All I can say is: crap!
Why? I’m eating the perscribed amount of calories (if not a bit more), doing some cardio as per reccomendation, and I blarfed about 1400 cals of carbs down on wednesday, yet I’m shrinking like a slug in the sunlight. The only thing I can think off is that I was taking 5g of Creatine/day before I started the diet, so my muscles might have less water in them now. I can still lift as much weight as I could before starting the diet, if not even more!
Supplements I’m taking: Fish oil, Bulgarian Tribulus, quality multivitamin, chemical EC(16mg/200mg) twice a week before workout, and calcium. I’m also taking in about 1g/lb protein. Doing maybe about 3-4 hours cardio/week (not more than 30min at a time). To give you a better picture of the fluctuations, here’s my BW for the past 5 days: Mon’172.2—Tue’165.4—Wed’165.8—Thu’167.2(this is after eating night)—Fri’164.0(today).
Now, I’m not sure what the problem is, or if there even is a problem. Please tell me what you think, and suggestions are welcome. Just don’t tell me to start using Mag-10, because I live in Canada.
