    I've had a theory for several months about cutting calories so that my body would catabolize fat stores, to help me lose weight while bulking up. People on forums called me a retard, and I abandoned the idea.

    However, while on Jamie Lewis' blog, Chaos and Pain, I found his spiel on ketogenic dieting ,which involves the same principle, but with carbs instead. He then discussed two forms of cutting/bulking, or cutting/maintaining versions: Cyclical Keto, and Targeted Keto. I'm trying cyclical keto.

    For anyone who doesn't know, you basically consume a lot of protein, and moderate amount of fat, and incidental carbs (from protein source foods, thats what I call them) only--virtually none. With a "disciplined cheat" on Tuesdays and Thursdays for carb-up (3-hour window after training session).

    The diet, for most days is:

    8 oz. Chicken for lunch (52g protein)

    Other form of meat, 9 eggs (54g from eggs, ? from other meat source)

    Protein Powder (104g protein), possibly Glutamine

    about 200g protein, and incidental protein from almonds, peanut butter, etc.

    A new BJs opened by my house, they're prices are incredible!!!!! Great place to shop for guys trying to get on the swole train (terrible pun...)

    The hope is this will keep up my recovery, so I can pound out heavier weights.

    My strength goals for this summer are:

    Deadlift - 500
    Squat - 405
    CGBP - 300
    OHP Seated - 225
    Push Press - Higher than 225
    Bent-Over Rows - 315 for reps
    Dips - 20, triceps version, at Bodyweight

    The hope is to get to no more than 12% bodyfat.

    I actually have 16" arms, but they look smaller than that, cuz I'm fucking fat. It needs to stop. I can't spend all of next spring in a hoodie while school's in session...

    I also wanna compete in an RU strongman event.

    Hopefully I'll get all sexified, so I can start confidently chasing big broad butts that abound at RU. ;)

    Apparently, processed carbs have an effect on acne, so maybe my face will become tolerable.
