Let me introduce myself. 52yo, 215, 6'. I'm about 30lbs. Overweight and a little soft. I started using a strength trainer about 2 months ago. I can see a little difference but I wasn't losing any weight. I stumbled across the 3 week diet and thought I would try it. I'm on my third day and committed to give it a try.
One thing I think you all might warn people about is the nicotine part. I am totally ignorant as I have never smoked a day in my life. Seeing the the 4mg package in the introduction I went out and bought the same. I got nicotine poisoning and was violently ill for about 2hrs. and that was mon. my day one.
I have a question about the diet. It never said and I'm just finding this forum to ask but how much olive oil are we allowed per day in the first week? I have been roasting my vegetables and using the olive oil and spices to cook them. Just wondering if there was supposed to be an allowable amount?
Also, is it normal for your stomach to feel a little off when starting this? I figure my system is in shock right now, just wondering.
And I told the trainer about the high intensity work outs recommended and is going to make some adjustments to my routine. I do strength training on mon., wed., fri., and I go on my own tues. and thur. and do cardio. I work body groups, is this OK?
I work nights and I haven't fasted but I am doing the skip breakfast thing everyday. So when I eat my last meal about 6:30am I don't eat again until after I workout, about 8:30pm. Is that agreeable with the diet. I am going to do the 24 hr. fast on day 8.
I guess I had a few questions. As I stated I'm committed to give this a go and continue on after if everything works out. Thank you for your time.
