I'm learning a lot about how to not eat bad stuff. How to say no to cravings. I think it's helping quite a bit. I've only been on this diet for close to 4 weeks, but I've been eating better and losing weight since January 2nd. I know I need to eat fats, carbs, protein, etc. I plan on doing so like I was prior to starting this current regimen. But I committed to giving this a try, and I plan on sticking it out two more weeks. The testosterone shots will continue past the end of the diet phase. They are two different programs.
This isn't a long term diet. It is supposed to reset your metabolism. My BMR was about 2200. Based on my age and size, it should have been about 3000. This program is trying to get my body to work like it should. I'm sticking with it.
When it's over, I will pick up my exercise where I left off. I'll be able to eat more calories, so I'll be able to exercise a lot more. I was doing over an hour before I started this. I'm going to vary it. Not just walking. I'm buying a bike and will do some other things as well.
I totally understand y'alls concerns over this diet. It is definitely different and controversial to some. But I feel good. Actually, I'm feeling pretty damn good. My mind is clearer than it's been in years. I get pretty good sleep. I'm not getting groggy at work from a lack of energy.
They say they want me to take 4 weeks off and restart the diet again. I'm leaning toward taking more than 4 weeks off. I want to see how my body has adjusted for longer than that. I want to exercise and eat right on my own with the aid of the testosterone, and see how much I can lose.
