Great job so far. I’m starting tomorrow and really looking forward to it. A couple of things I want to suggest to you:
Go to fitday.com and log the last couple days of eating. I know you hate logging and macro ratios, but I think it is a good idea at this point to see where you are at. When you posted your diet, it did not seem like you were getting enough fat in there. You’re eating a lot of turkey and chicken, and not much red meat. Up the fat! This is a high-fat diet, and I think you’ll feel better and see more results if you stick to 50-70% fat.
Also, logging will help you see how many calories you’ve been taking in. I’m guessing that at your weight, you need more. Start with your body weight X 18 and see how that works. And about the weight staying the same, here is what DiPasquale says in his book about the first 3-4 weeks:
“This makes for a ?static? phase where you lose some body fat, gain some muscle mass, and maintain about the same weight. This is a phase where you?ll be changing the ratio of internal masses to some degree, but most of what you?re doing is allowing your body its easiest path toward adapting to the diet.”
So keep at it, you’re doing a good job so far, and I’ll be checking in a lot because you’ll be two weeks ahead of me.
