Hey all. I hope you all had a good holiday season and were able to keep the fat demons away
I started Doing TD2 this last Monday. Since I have never attempted a “keto” diet and I had difficulty learning all that I wanted on this and other websites, I went ahead and bought the Atkins book since he has been doing it for so long and has great references. I of course took all that I read with a grain of salt and was able to look past all the Atkins marketing and really extract some good basic and advanced info.
SO I have about 25-30 lbs to lose and and deciced that I would probably benefit from an “induction” type phase to start out with. Which for those of you who are not familiar with what Atkins calls induction, its basically a period of 2 weeks or more where you take in only 20 grams of carbs a day. Once I made the “shift” to lipolysis(sp?) I started losing almost a pound per day. Now, even tho I was drinking close to 2 gallons of water a day for the last 12 weeks I think that a good portion of this weight loss is still water weight. However, in the case that it’s not, do you guys think that 6 caps( total per day) of Tribex 500 as well as 2 doses of Methoxy 7 will be enough to retain LBM? I’m just concerned that even though I’m losing weight, it could be some be lean mass. ( or more than I’m prepared to lose)
A run down of the other supplements I take,
EPA/DHA, ZMA, low carb Grow, Udo’s perfected blend, an antioxidant belnd from GNC, CLA, Folic acid *( these are 800mcg but the diet says 800 mg so I take 10 of em. Is this a typo?) Jarrow ALA, and a multivitamin. Weight currently 218.5, 6 ft tall approx 18% bf. Hope this info can help you, help me. (lol)
Ps. I’m tired of being Newbie. Since nicknames should be given and not made up by the person using it,( even though I will choose the final name anyway) anyone want to give me a new one? Marc Mcdougal? You’ve met me a few times you got any ideas? I have a great sense of humor so all so I want to hear em all. Funny, degrading, flames of names ( lol ) anything you can think of cuzz I’m fresh out of ideas.
