Hi. I’m new here, but have been browsing a lot of the articles for a while. I just finished reading the Anabolic Diet book as well as some articles on the diet here. I’ve read a little of the My Experience on the AD as well…I hope to get through the whole 300+ pages soon.
I think I’m a good candidate for the diet as I’ve always been carb sensitive. I’ve lost 30 lbs since the end of June and would like to lose another 25-30 lbs to get back in great shape. I’d like to get to 14-15% bodyfat and then maybe think of doing a show someday (my ultimate goal). Like most women, I hold a lot of my fat in my lower body and due to a C-section 2.5 years ago (and careless diet), I have some lower abdomenal fat to get rid of.
I’m going to start the diet on Friday and not carb up until 14 days later to give my body plenty of time to convert from sugar burner to fat burner. If I feel really badly before the 15 days are up, I’ll carb up at 12 days. I’m just trying to get on the weekday high fat/protein and carb up on weekends schedule.
I weighed myself this morning, but I think I’ll weigh in again on Friday when I plan to actually start the program. I’ll take some pictures then as well. I will post my daily nutritional intake as well as my training & cardio. I can use all the support I can get!
Training will look like this:
Monday: Cardio only (30 mins HITT)
Tuesday: Glutes/Hams (need extra work)
Wednesday: Chest & Triceps
Thursday: Shoulders & Cardio (45 mins steady state)
Friday: Cardio only (30 mins HITT)
Sunday: Back & Biceps & Cardio (45 mins steady state)
I’m going to set my intial caloric level at 2300 calories so that I leave room for manipulating/decreasing the number while trying to cut fat (and keep/build a little muscle).
