If anyone is interested, ive been at it for about a week now, and I feel amazing.
I havent even been terribly strict, got 3 gym work outs in as well as 2 sprinting work outs. The lifts were strong, and I felt like I could keep going. My runs were faster than I have ever been. Plus, ive lost about 5lbs, (probably water weight?) but I have gotten tighter.
Cant wait till the end of the month to see where I am at.
Havent gotten around to any long hikes yet, but this weekend will be my first. Ill be interested to see how I feel on it, cause I usually eat about 700+ calories on these hikes. Definitely bringin some food though. Likely some energy gels in case, but mostly fatty foods, like nuts/seeds and shaved coconut.
