Hey guys..

This is my first week of my UD 2.0 and im currently on my carb load.. i was wondering, besides looking in the mirror as stated in the book, is there any other way to gauge whether your carb load was a successful one? For some reason i feel like total **** today. I ate rice and i drank some water and felt like my stomach was going to implode

I not too sure how to answer this question cuz im on my first week of ud2 this week as well. Just finished day 5: Carb-load and I feel great! When I woke up I felt leaner and my muscles were full..no bloat. Did the skinfold test and over the week i seem to have lost 5 lbs of fat...I had 850 grams of Carbs during that 24 hr or so period consisting of pasta, rice, oats, whole meal bread and maltodextrin.

Maybe you ate too many sucrose/fructose or maybe too many carbs. I keep my sucrose intake under 50 grams and fat intake under 70 grams

pretty much go by the mirror, if you wake up not looking/feeling bloated then your carb up was fine

and you could always take measurements to see if you put any fat back on.

Glad week 1 went well, but just so you know you couldn't possibly have lost 5 lbs of fat in one week.

You need to be in a caloric deficit of 3500 cals (through either diet or cardio) to lose 1 lb of fat, thus 17,500 cals to lose 5 lbs of fat. On UD2 you eat low cal for 4 days...let's say you're in a caloric deficit of 2000 calories (which is pretty generous on my part) from eating alone, plus you burn 1000 calories through exercise on these 4 days. That is a 12,000 calorie deficit, and I'm pretty sure that the majority of those who do the diet don't actually create such a substantial deficit. Even in that extreme case, you would not lose 5 lbs of pure fat in one week.

UD2 is a great diet, but let's be sensible.

Im pretty sure I retained most of my muscle. If I didn't lost 5 lb of fat, then what did I lost?

It doesn't matter. The important thing is that you're at or slightly below maintenance for the day. If you have a large shake after the workout, that's just less calories you have left to consume for the rest of the day.

5 pounds in a week is significant for it to be all fat lost and not muscle and/or water.

Impressive. Even non-sugary things typically have sugar in them.

Crap, a typical bagel has about 5g sugar. So, 10 bagels = 50g sucrose.
