Well, the time has come that I became sick of my fatarse.

Short story: I weighed 186 after UD2.0, then 205 after Bill Starrs 5x5 where it went to hell afterwards. I became a EMT, ate like crap, and went out drinking pretty frequently with guys from work since I graduated H.S. with half of them. I still lifted heavy and ate a lot. I currently sit at 250lb. Shame eh? Been saying for 5 months I would get rid of it. Figured the time was now.

Anywho, I didn't want to do UD2.0 again, bought Rapid Fat Loss by Lyle McDonald, read it, and was intrigued. I know I slow cut would be recommended, but they drive me insane. I prefer a faster, more intense approach because I seem to stick to it.

Please offer suggestions, as it is the first time I am attempting this diet.

I'm aiming for 240g protein per day with 10g fish oil for the EFA's, and plenty of fibrous vegetables. I'm spliting this into 4 meals a day, with lifting 3 times a weak with low volume and easy cardio.

Today, Day 1 :(

Today went well. Not a bad workout and I wasn't going insane like yesterday. I'm down 6lbs from yesterday, assumed 98% of that is water weight. Also, tuna mixed with soy sauce doesn't take all that great.

I'm up to day 4 of this and I must say it's going a lot easier than I expected.
Decided to weigh myself for ****-n-giggles and I'm down 8 lbs since Sunday. Doesn't mean much but I like to watch. The hunger pains aren't bad either.

I just ordered some calcium and magnesium to supplement my lack of dairy, along with Casein protein powder. Hopefully it will be here in a few days. I plan to go to the store later today and pick up some cottage cheese. Need to go to the butcher and get a nice 5lb bag of chicken and some more beef.

I'm loving it to be honest. The run didn't happen because I had class from 12-3, started running by 4pm after lifting. By this time I was so hungry I couldn't stand the pain longer to finish my run. If I didn't have class at 6pm I would have had a meal first, but I thought I may not have enough time. I could see myself eating like this most of the week when done so I can stick to a low bf.

I was down 12 lbs since I started, then my friend came back from his Ireland/London trip and it all went to hell.

Tuesday night into Wednesday turned into a drunkfest and a strip club because we didn't want to stop drinking after bars closed. I held a conversation with one of the strippers for a half-hour and found out she is a biochemistry major. Then Wednesday night I had White Castle, and was disgusted. I then decided to take this more hardcore than I was. I'm going to be under 200lbs once my sisters wedding comes (end of October).
