246. Feeling and looking great. No loss of muscle that I can notice. At least halfway done.

Quit telling him that. He'll find out on his own or prove you wrong. Or are you one of these pricks who likes saying "I told you so?"

Not generally but this is honestly one of the dumbest diets I've ever even heard about.

It doesn't even make sense scientifically. It seems to just essentially be a placebo effect.

Eating 500 calories a day is a placebo effect? That's some Ethiopian shit.

Oh, no. The hormone part of it. Special K is telling himself, "man, this hormone takes away my appetite" and then boom, he doesn't eat. In the same time, he's consuming essentially estrogen which is going to make him fatter and may even make him sprout man-boobs.

Sounds like a winning plan to me!

Look man, hunger pangs aren't something that you can just imagine away. If I was having them I would have shitcanned the diet long before almost 3 weeks.

And everyone assumes I'm just going to fucking binge on Twinkies and Cool Ranch Doritos the first chance I get. Incorrect. I'm already ramping up my physical activity. There's a maintenance plan after the diet, and it's not too lax. I'm fine with that.

Whether or not you think it makes sense, three things are true:
-I've lost a lot of weight
-I've had no hunger pangs
-I'm pissing ketones like a motherfucker, without eating a bunch of fat like on Atkins.

Maybe I'll gain the weight back. But there are plenty of people who don't. Men have gone through three, four of these courses and haven't grown tits.

I'll say that I enjoy Fierce!'s style.

Also, I'll side with Mik, this ends poorly.

I think he'll be ok. If he can quit booze, he can lose weight. Cut the guy some slack.

I think we should get weekly weight updates in the eight weeks that follow the conclusion of the diet.

That's fair.

I lost weight in a similar fashion. That is to say, a whole lot at once, then worked at keeping it off. I didn't use anything strange like gimmick diets or hormones, I just consumed almost nothing but tuna, ramen, and cigarettes and walked everywhere I went. Put back about a third of what I lost in the past five years, but I chalk that up to having money for food and gas. Just takes willpower and sense.

Everything I've ever done or quit, I had no plan at all. I just kind of half assed it every day, but it still worked. So willpower yes, sense no.

Fair enough! If this diet's a miserable failure, I certainly don't want anyone else doing it.

Well, I've been off a week. gained a few poinds (probably due to taking steroids for a few days, had a BAD flu. Also, all i could keep down was ice cream.) I've been stabilized at 243 for four days, eating pretty well, just watching the carbs and sugar. Keeping calories around 2000. Not bad at all! Still look and feel really good. Went to the gym on a free pass, and I haven't lost any noticeable amount of strength.

Also, I can start working out regularly again in a week, which I'm excited for. (I work out at the company gym, and I'm on assignment away from the office for one more week.)

I've also noticed my eating habits have changed for the better, probably mostly out of habit. The only thing I really crave that I can't have tons of is high-sugar fruits like grapes and watermelon, and juices.

Also, my blood pressure is 118/69. Not too shabby!

He's posted recently. Obviously there's something he doesn't want to tell us.

It didn't go that well! (IMG:http://forums.thesmartmarks.com/style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif)

But at least I just bounced back to the former weight, not any higher. Now I've been doing it the old fashioned way. Healthier diet and lots of cardio. It's more fun anyway. And, y'all told me so.
