So it has been well over a month since my last update on my calorie cycle progress. So here is your update! I feel great its been a total of about 6 weeks that I have been calorie cycling and my current numbers are: 8.8% Body Fat 195 pounds! which is great! 1 whole percentage of body fat lost in about a month and my weight has not gone down all that much which is a great sign. I can see the results in the mirror, and even got a comment from my Fiance that my abs are looking good! I am very excited for this summer because I feel I am finally doing everything right to get the body I want.
I thought it would be nice to also list some new tricks I have picked up across the way:
- Cut out Artificial sweeteners, the fact is this helped me control my cravings. I can honestly say there is a difference when your not using this stuff.
- Balanced Meals, All my meals(even snacks) include a Protein, Carb and Fat source.
- Healthy Pancakes! Stay tuned for a recipe and pictures of my fiance’s delicious healthy pancakes.
- Limited Alcohol/Cheat meals, Fact is I have had 1 cheat day in the last 6 weeks and 1 cheat meal both included drinking. It is no secret that drinking is detrimental to any fitness/training program so I decided to allow myself to have 1 drinking day every 3 to 4 weeks, limited to special occasions… like bachelor parties, weddings and easters.
