It’s finally over. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, go check out my original post „6 Week Fat Loss: „Lean & Jacked Program„.
My bodyweight has changed as follows:
14 April: 84,4 kg
24 May: 80,5 kg
Total Weight Loss –> 3,9 kg
This is the first time I have actually dieted in a stricter sense. Generally, I am happy with how everything went but of course there’s always room for improvement. But this being my first time of dieting over several weeks and also doing a water cut at the end of it, I can say that I am satisfied.
I achieved 2 out of 3 goals. Goal #1 was to move my body fat close to 7%. Even though I haven’t done a DEXA scan to quantitatively verify my body fat percentage, I am confident that I got 7%. The veins in my lower abdominal area were popping out like crazy and that’s considered a sign for single digit body fat percentage.
I was also able to achieve goal #2 which was to clean up my diet by eliminating stuff like cakes/pies. Sometimes I had a craving for these foods but after 2 weeks or so I didn’t think much about it anymore. I reminded myself of why I was doing this diet and that kept me motivated.
As you can see in the pictures below, I didn’t achieve goal #3 – i.e. see the muscle striations on my quads. My quads got leaner but in the end I was still holding a bit too much water to make these striations visible. I will try to achieve this goal next time I do a diet.
In the future, I will definitely be doing some more diets and who knows, maybe some day I will feel like stepping on stage in some amateur bodybuilding competitions.
If you have any questions about the specific details of my diet and water cut, comment below.
