Daily drinks: 2 black coffees, 2 teas and 2.5 liters of waterTips: plan the hour of your meals, every 3-4 hours, it helps not getting badly hungry.Comments:Apart from a fitness point if view, it does not get easier, I felt really hungry and desperate at lunch and dinner time, hence the quantities eaten.I maintain my carbs intake really low, so I have my ups and many downs, at time I don't feel great.
Day 3 conclusions: I have my first niggle, the pain in my traps, i will not lift any weight tomorrow. I will adjust by eating every 3 hours and resting more. The good NEWS IS THAT WEIGHT GOES DOWN, I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MONDAY TO SEE WHERE I AM.
