From 20% to 10% body fat: week 2 report

The second week of my 16-week challenge to drop from ~20% to 10% body fat has also not gone as planned! However, it was an improvement over the first week.

I decided to make the lean days into actual fasts, to see if not eating was easier than eating only a little bit. In the end, it wasn’t easier, but because of the health benefits of a full fast, I have decided to switch to full fasts and see what happens.

Here’s the hard data:

This week I created a deficit of 3500 calories and overate by about 3000 calories. So the net loss was negligible, less than 1000 calories. Measured like that, progress was very small this week.

In terms of days, I did do a full fast (out of two), and I managed to not snack on two days (Tuesday’s snack doesn’t count). That’s already better than last week.

The output numbers look a bit better: I am at 76.8, the exact same weight as last Monday. Waist remained at 94cm. The weekly average was better for weight (75.6kg vs 76.2kg last week) but worse for waist (93.1cm vs 92.5cm last week).

Some more notes on what worked and what I want to change:

Will report again next week!
