Thanks alot guy's just got back from vacation..I had no idea how hard dropping the fat would be...I used to compete back in the late 80's early 90's then took 10 years off(mistake)..Well 303 lbs and could not walk 50ft without taking a rest..Smoked and drank and ate 2lb bag of chips almost everyday at my office...I started C-K-D right away,this diet or some form has been around a long time,back in the 70's Arnold called it the beef,water and egg diet...Progress was slow and I was doing everything by the book.Well right away i noticed a water weight loss and when I starting lifting.my muscle memory kicked in and my size came back so fast it was great.Then it happened 2 months in everything is fine and bang I just stop loosing,and was stuck at 260lbs it seemed like 3 months
but I kept noticing subtle changes in body composition and being an experienced bodybuilder I know not to go by the scale alone.I have figured out how my metabolism works..I am carb sensitive so I do not refeed as often as most.I go 10-14 days before a refeed and im limiting my carbs to below 40 a day,just enough to keep me regular if you know what I mean..The journey has been long,hard,some days you feel great others your disgusted with your progress.I believe you have to shock the body every 3 weeks or so.Im talking severe dieting tactics that are not recomended but works for me and these include...3 day v-8 fast nothing but vegtable juice..Then back on C-K-D everytime I hit a plateau I would shock my system either a juice fast or if im relly feeling like crap a 3 day pig fest..Now im not suggesting any of you try this all I can say it helped me blast through a stickingpoint.....I willkeep you guy;s posted it has been 1 week since I posted a picture and I can tell you I am more cut now than that picture,so it seems to be coming pretty fast now and my calories has increased.This means my metabolism is stoked im getting cut on a high calorie diet and im getting bigger at the same time,nothing dramatic but ill take it....currently weight 238lb waist 34"

THis is what I looked like before I started now it has been 9 months
weight 303 waist 44

im the one on the right
