Diet Progress

Around about the beginning of February I started trying to lose weight. I’m using the Hacker’s Diet which essentially says that to lose weight you must burn more calories than you take in. To burn more calories, I’ve been exercising, mainly running but also swimming and playing racquetball. So, after a month, here’s my current progress.

Diet Progress 2012/Mar/04

I’m hoping I can continue at this rate for a while since my goal is to lose around 60 pounds. I may have more of a problem right now since at the moment I’m currently under doctor’s orders to do “no exertion” until he can figure out why last Wednesday I had a thunderclap headache that sent me to the emergency room. I’ve got an MRI scheduled this coming Wednesday that will hopefully find out more about that and I’m hopeful that once that is done I will be able to get back to exercising regularly.

Anyway, I will try to post at least monthly updates here on my dieting progress.

    I came across your loss entry on the physics diet site (which I'm also using for the last week or two), and not knowing what the blue arrow icon was I clicked it, and ended up here!

    As you're trying to lose fat while also doing limited cardio due to the medical issue, I would recommend checking out Lyle McDonald's Rapid Fat Loss diet, which is what I'm currently following and tracking on the physicsdiet site. Due to the diet setup the only cardio if any that he suggests is walking so that might fit for you. You'd still do some sort of strength training twice a week or so.
