This wasn't two months, lol. This has been almost 2 years.
Low cal, high exercise
Standard cal, high exercise
High cal, high exercise
Low cal, no exercise...
LoL, think of all combinations and there you are. Low cal was 1300 per day, high cal was 2100 per day. I usually always stuck to 1700 per day (just what I usually eat). High exercise was 30-60 mins per day. I'd lose an inch here or there, just by toning up, but never lost any flub. I went 3 months at one time exercising 5 days a week, eating no more than 1600 cals per day, all natural, no processed foods, no sweets, no pop, no caffeine (and I'm a coffee/tea drinker). I was a wreck without my coffee, tired all the time from exercise, and didn't lose a pound.
I'm going to keep going with this for a few months, then start to ramp up the carbs slowly as I exercise more. I was told by an Atkins fiend not to exercise too heavily in the beginning to avoid a major drop in blood sugar.
