Amazingly I woke up at 6:20 this morning! This has to be some kind of record for me, as it normally takes a week or two for me to adjust to the time change – especially the Spring one. I think my strategy of waking up earlier than normal in the days leading up to the time change worked.

As I mentioned yesterday, there was not a lot of fat loss progress this past week – about a half pound as compared to last Monday. As I also mentioned in yesterday’s update, I’ll be doing my weekly measurements and body fat testing on Sunday morning instead of Monday from now on.

Diet-wise, the next couple of weeks will be pretty much the same as the past four weeks, except that my calories have been further reduced. More exciting (read: “challenging”) changes are coming two weeks from today. Yesterday Mastover informed me that in a couple of weeks we’re going to start utilizing some more advanced fat loss techniques, and we’re going to kick things off with carb cycling/refeeds. Essentially what I’ll be doing is going 5-6 days with no carbs except for veggies and grapefruit. On the 5th or 6th day – which will be timed to fall on a lagging body part (for me, probably delts) – I’ll eat an insane amounts of carbs. This fat loss technique should keep my metabolism revved and my body thoroughly “confused”. I’ve never utilized refeeds, and the low/no carb periods will certainly be a huge challenge. I’m pretty sure my body will go into Ketosis while doing this, and I’ve never done that before. It should make for some very interesting updates, assuming I don’t forget how to type while in a low-carb fog. 🙂
