    My thoughts one week in... sticking to the diet has been easy. Seeing my weight go down on the scale - even though that is the goal - has been tough on my psychologically. I am one of those legitimate hard gainers. It took me 31 years to go from 115 pounds to 252 pounds. I fought for every pound I put on... lots of sweat & tears, injuries, age. Other than TRT starting at age 31, I never touched gear until I was 43. It took 5 full years of carefully planned cycles to get to 252 pounds. Yes, I fully understand in my brain that cutting for a show is all about losing weight and I love the fact that I am leaning out but dang, losing weight - even fat - is tougher on my psyche than I realized. Weighed in at 237 this morning. I probably need to step away from the scale for a bit and go by how I look.

My body responds to carbs differently than when I was 25, 35 or even a few years ago when I was 45. I am also keeping a close eye on my kidney function with the gear and the amount of protein. In the final analysis, I just have to trust my coach.
    I only questioned it, because like you said, it goes against everything I've read also.

    Your points make sense.

    I am usually pretty prepared but had some good friends that I haven't seen in while come into town last night and they wanted to go out to dinner. We went to Texas Roadhouse. I was pretty proud of myself since I only ate meat and had a few bites of a sweet potato. Drank water instead of a beer. Yup, thought I did good... until I got home and googled my prime rib. 1180 calories in my prime rib with 94 grams of fat!!!! At least my carbs were extremely low. However, I had been eating super clean and on point with my diet for the last 11 days until last night. I felt super bloated and still feel bloated this morning. This little mix up has me even more determined to be even more prepared. Got a 6-pack bag and no more dinners out until November 4th.

    Stay focused bro! Can't wait to see where you end up.
    At the intersection of hard work, nutrition, genetics, and gear.

    Yesterday marked 2 weeks into my cut. I weighed in at 233 pounds. Strength is mostly still there but the stamina is gone.

    Been stuck at 230 pounds for about 5 days. Coach added in 15 minutes on the stairmaster after each workout a few days ago. Whomever invented that dang thing should be shot... I've done very minimal cardio my whole life up until this cut because I was always trying to gain weight so the first time I did the Stairmaster was a freaking brutal shock to my body! We also started the Tren and Mast earlier than planned. My workouts have changed quite a bit. Instead of doing 1 bodypart at a time/day, now starting to dropset and superset multiple bodyparts since we have a better idea where I am lacking now that the fat is coming off. Physically, I can't lift as heavy but my stamina is coming back. Emotionally, I am in a really good place. Seeing my body change like this is pretty cool.

    You have no idea... but it also motivates me. When I can't do something or it is really difficult, it pisses me off and drives me. Plus, now I'm on Tren. I'm always super happy and in a good mood when I'm "trenning".

    Hell yeah man that’s the attitude to have. It’s taken me a long way as well. It’s a must have attitude for anyone who wants to really succeed in something.
