Day 15 - Wednesday - September 26

Training: None. Planned to go but fell asleep like right after dinner. Guess I needed the R&R. Will make up for it tomorrow no doubt.

Supplementation: Starting to notice a runny nose. Its annoying because I keep thinking it is a bloody nose and turns out to be benign. This is to be expected with LGD. Anxiety has become a real PITA at night so I've switched my dose back to the morning before breakfast. Should be better now. Going to start going to the gym as soon as I can after work now to mitigate as much of that as possible.

Calories: 2,750 Protein: 200g Carbohydrate: 260g Fat: 105g. Splurged on some rotisserie chicken with the skin on and some fries. Guestimating the macros here based on myfitnesspal but I think there are probably more carbs and less fat.

Day 16 - Thursday - September 27

Training: Heavy push day. Felt great. Skipped out on close grip bench because I feel like there's too much benching/its too redundant. Need to find a good replacement that's not dips.

Supplementation: Nothing new to report but I've noticed some foamy urine. Hope this isn't serious proteinuria. I don't know why it would be but I'm concerned.

Calories: N/A. Realized I forgot to track after the fact. Shame on me. Probably around the 3,000 mark though.

Day 17 - Friday - September 28

Training: Heavy Pull Day. PRed on Deadlifts with better form so that's nice. Seemed to slip up on form at the end though, ugh.

Supplementation: Major Mass tastes great but the marshmallows in it don't seem to come up to the lid until the end for the most part. That's a bit annoying.

Calories: 3,215. Protein: 205g Carbohydrate: 415g Fat: 90g. This LGD really makes my large appetite even more ravenous. I just can't be stopped. Send help.

Day 18 - Saturday - September 29

Training: Cardio and abs. Felt really bloated (big surprise given my caloric intake) and noticed I've been slacking off on cardio for general health and fitness so I got on it.

Supplementation: Urine color is still fine but I'll be getting a urinalysis at the end of the coming week to see if I have any problems with proteinuria or so. Hopefully not.

Calories: 2,400. Protein: 165g Carbohydrate: 315g Fat: 50g. Reigned it in a little bit today to help compensate for yesterday and the fact that I didn't lift today. In all reality, I'd like to be hitting 2,750-2,800 consistently each day but it seems like I'm consistently over- or under-shooting.

Day 19 - Sunday - September 30

Training: Light Leg Day. Felt great. Knees popped on leg extensions during the warm up but after that I was good to go without much pain. PRed on most lifts and squatted last workout's (heavy day) for more reps today. Also did some cardio.

Supplementation: Anxiety at night seems to be gone now that I've returned to dosing LGD in the mornings. Thank God. Been having some super weird dreams though.

Calories: 3,100 Protein: 235g Carbohydrate: 420g Fat: 55g.

Day 20 - Monday - October 1

Training: Light Push Day. Had a personal day off work so I spent awhile in the gym. Man I was really in my zone. Absolutely destroyed it. Went the heaviest I've gone in a long time and with good form - and all on a "light" high rep day. Even did cardio later at night.

Supplementation: Does craft beer count as a supplement?

Calories: 3,000 Protein: 185g Carbohydrate: 275g Fat: 70g. Guestimating a bit here because I met my friend for a few beers. The bartender everyone criticizes proved he was worthy of the criticism and gave me another beer when I asked for water but I wasn't not going to drink it so oh well. What was 2 beers became about 4-5. Also lead to Oreo Os as drunchies. Better than a pint of Ben and Jerry's though.

Day 21 - Tuesday - October 2

Training: Day off. Didn't really plan this one but oh well. Tomorrow's light pull day and I'm looking forward to the curls.

Supplementation: According to studies I should be clinically suppressed right now. However, I feel great on the LGD right now. Ran out of LCLT - need to buy more.

Calories: 3,000 Protein: 150g Carbohydrate: 300g Fat: 130g. Finally cleared out my Ben & Jerry's stock. Gotta find a low cal snack I can just pound down with little consequences because this LGD amplifies my already large appetite. Any suggestions?

Day 22 - Wednesday - October 3

Training: Light Pull day. Forearm pump was ridiculous. I couldn't even grab 20s at one point. Had to put off reverse curls for another day it was so strong. Absolutely loved the feeling though. Might have to throw in an arm and cardio day this weekend just for fun.

Supplementation: LGD seems to be making a difference. I definitely get pumps quicker and they are much stronger. I can see a visual difference in my arms for sure. Waiting to see what else happens.

Calories: 2,150 Protein: 160g Carbohydrate: 215g Fat: 70g. Feeling a little chub recently so I may try to bring the goal back down to 2,750. Its hard enough sticking to 3,000 on most days so who knows I may just be kidding myself.

Day 23 - Thursday - October 4

Training: I tried to hit legs but my posterior chain was just not having it. I technically PRed with a weight for 3 reps but I was supposed to hit 5 sets of 5. After a few warm-up sets, some of which felt too heavy, I decided to postpone heavy leg day for another day or two and do some cardio. Did about 40 mins of cardio and finished up the forearms and rear-delt flies that I had to skip out on yesterday. Likely planning a long cardio and ab session tomorrow. May also throw in arms. TBD. Just hope I can blast the leg workout when it comes.

Supplementation: LGD is both a blessing and a curse to libido. In short, more frequent and harder, but subject to momentary retreats. Worth it for the gains though.

Calories: 2,250 Protein: 125g Carbohydrate: 275g Fat: 70g. Had to really guestimate here since I was feeling some Pad Thai for some reason. No idea what the macros were on it but I only had about 1,100-1,250 calories before the pad thai so I'm assuming this is a safe estimate.

Glad to see your LGD run is starting to show results.  I personally have never tried anything too exotic outside of epicatechin, which I know is not exotic at all.  Have you noticed any changes in recomp (muscle gain, fat loss) at all?  Keep up the good work!!

Definitely see some size and strength gains so far but it is supposed to really kick in around week 4-6.

Day 24 - Friday - October 5

Training: Wound up skipping out to see an old friend who finally moved to DC. Worth it.

Supplementation: Starting to dislike the flavor of the BCAAs I'm using. I guess that's what I get for being cheap.

Calories: 2,900. Protein: 125g Carbohydrate: 340g Fat: 70g.

Day 25 - Saturday - October 6

Training: Just did a bunch of cardio today for general health. I've totally been slacking a bit on it and need to get back on track. Did almost an hour. I tried to go do legs but my lower back would not let me. RIP.

Supplementation: I need to get a few TROOPs reviews up but have a busy week in front of me so it will probably take one more week to get them up. Stay tuned.

Calories: 1,600 Protein: 120g Carbohydrate: 150g Fat: 60g. Just didn't eat much today. I woke up really late so that played a role.

Day 26 - Sunday - October 7

Training: Finally hit legs. I went once and just did cardio because I could legit not get in the zone. Everything felt extra heavy so I didn't really set many PRs or anything. I made up for it by punishing myself with extra 5 sets of squats and leg press each (at about half the weight of the working heavy sets). Felt good at the end.

Supplementation: Nothing new. Slacking on some reviews but have no fear I will get them up.

Calories: 2,250 Protein: 175g Carbohydrate: 255g Fat: 60g. I feel like I forgot to track a meal so this estimate is more off than usual. I've been slacking on tracking everything since I kind of just know what I can and can't eat/do and then realize I forget after a day or two. Getting back on track of this today.

Day 27 - Monday - October 8

Training: Planned to go push day but I got the itis HARD after dinner and fell asleep. In my defense it was Texas de Brazil so there's that. If you're reading this on the 9th then today is the last day to eat at their OG prices (like $28.50/person) in celebration of their 20th anniversary. Highly recommend.

Supplementation: Low key made need to throw some thyrotwin in here to keep some fat off lol. Actually though...

Calories: 3,150. No macro estimates here because Texas de Brazil is near impossible to estimate anything more than calories. I have the appetite of a small village right now. Please send help.
