We got a beach va-k in 2 weeks and I wanted to drop a couple extra lbs by then. i have never tried to loose more than 1-2 lbs a week since i've heard its bad, but figured what the hell, it's only for 2 weeks, lets see what happens.<br><br>
I've lost 1.5 lbs each day, now 4 days into my 14 day diet.<br><br>
here is the regiment:<br>
day 1 and 2:<br>
breakfast = bowl of kashi high protien/high fiber cereal and glass of OJ<br>
lunch = a lean cuisine meal<br>
dinner = 3 or 4 beers (preferrably a dark Stout or thick beer)<br>
day 3: same as day 1 and 2, but eat a medium dinner.<br>
repeat all 3 days until end of 2 week period.<br><br>
After 4 days, i feel damn hungry, but I am still completing my runs at the same time. Is there anything I should expect if I keep on this path, having never tried this before?

Other than a lifetime membership to AA?<br><br>
I kid I kid!<br><br>
I love a good microbrew as well.<br><br>
This isn't the type of diet where all the LB's will most likely stay off, but if you aren't feeling any ill effects and it's only for a short time and it's about vanity and not health... what the hell...

If you are getting light on carbs (Glycogen) it can lead to hitting the wall in your work outs - It may be tomorrow or after 5-6 days - not at all.<br><br><br>
The body stores about 1 pound of glycogen with 5 pounds of water. Many people that go on the atkins diet think that they have lost 6 pounds fast - when all they have done is stripped their glycogen.<br><br>
My guess is that unless you are doing a lot of excercise - You will not lose more than 4 pounds of fat a week (Lots being 3 hours of aerobic per day) Alcohol also inhibits the process that the body used to burn fat as a fuel source.<br><br>
Although when you strip hydration and glycogen along with 5-6 pounds I am sure you will look "Marvelous" for the beach. Also the lower hydration will allow you to get much more mileage out of your beer/booze as happens when your blood thickens.<br><br>
Keep it up and report how it goes -
