I've seen a few videos and articles regarding the ketogenic diet last year, and I was like "Meh, another diet".
Then I saw a book in french at my local grocery store talking about it, and I was like... yeah why not, it's in french it's gonna be easier for me.
And I am under 20g of carbs a day, and I try to stay as close to 0 as possible if I can.
Seems similar to atkins diet as well.
The fat is shedding off so quickly. I ordered a CD + large t-shirt bundle, and I realize I cannot order large anymore, I'm down to medium YEAH!!!!! The t-shirts I bought too small for when I get thinner now fit ! It's incredible! But my wallet hates me, I have to buy new clothes now.
But yeah, this no/low carb thing is a god damn godsend to me. I've been going between 168 and 175 lbs for quite a long time, making very slow progress, and in under a month I went down to 158. Feeling great, full of energy. I had a business trip and couldn't control what I ate because food was included, so I gained a bit, but I'll crap it all out soon and get back to where I was and continue going down.
I'm incredibly happy I decided to try it, I'm almost at a flat tummy now, and all the working out I've been doing for 2 years is soon going to be visible with the fat that's getting off!!! I'm super excited.
I also got waxed (back + front torso), so I got to see better my body's change. I'm starting to love myself more.
So yeah, just a good news post

Totally slacked off March and April after a really good February. Gonna be extra busy this month so I found a free at-home program that I'm going to try since getting to the gym will be difficult.

I'm still doing DDP Yoga and eating a lot better. I've shed about 15 lbs or so. In fact I've lost quite a bit of the gut I was getting and a few pairs of pants I bought not too long ago are already looking really baggy on me. I'm feeling good!

I've been inconsistent in the gym and I think it's hurting the fact I raise 5lbs to my max weight each time I go, but yesterday for my 5x5 maxes I was able to honk 215lb squats, 125 bench and 140lb barbell rows. The depth is suffering in my squats as I add more weight but I'm still feeling pretty good about my progress considering I haven't used a belt or wraps or anything yet and just started all this shit in February. my plan is to see how my squats are feeling depth wise on Wednesday since I'll be coming off enough rest and not too much time off and on Friday I should be squatting 2 plates. I'm probably going to then take all of next week at 225 squats to focus on form and depth. these beginner gains have been awesome and I'm officially up to 150lbs body weight. When I signed up for the gym I was 139. feeling good about the progress. my goal is to hit 160 sometime soon and will probably take me another few months but that's the arbitrary initial goal I set for myself in February. Feeling pretty stronk.
I tweaked my shoulder at one or both of the Bit Brigade/Double Ferrari shows so OHP has been really slacking, but the other day I was able to crunch 80 and the pain is all gone finally so I'm going to be adding weight to those each time I do them again and it should help my bench as well. I'm excited to put some numbers up on that because I am a full fledged leggy boi and my upper body sucks right now but it will get there.

Ah man I was doing so well going to the gym and I've fallen off the wagon. I've been adhering to my running and simple body weight exercises at home though. I will be changing my schedule around to try gym in the morning and see if I can get that to stick
