Week 1 Update - The MAYhem Diet

One week in, and all is well. This diet is incredibly easy to follow. The meals are filling, and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. Results so far are very acceptable. I've lost 4.5lbs - mostly fat - and reduced my body fat by 1 percentage point. My only concern was losing lean body mass (read: muscle) along with the fat. I've taken some steps to curb this, however, and they seem to be working.

I've also learned to curb my gluttony on the cheat days. You are given one day per week to stray from the plan and eat what you want, and I overdid it this time. The funny thing is that I gorged on pie and ice cream not because I necessarily wanted it, but because I could. This resulted in poor sleep that night, and a disappointing weigh-in the following morning. Lesson learned. Duly noted. Back to kicking ass.
