Weight (Today): 180 lb

Notes:  Full week theoretically in nutritional ketosis, pulling back a lot on volume.  Going to try and get down to 3 days this week, with sub-45-minute times in the gym at each.  Quality over quantity, plus eating lighter with an ~80-15-5 fat-protein-carb ratio.  This actually means a pretty drastic reduction in protein for me, but I was eating so much of it (~200-300g/day) that there was basically no way I wasn't using it for fuel through gluconeogenesis.  In practice, this works out to about a pound of meat a day and as much fat as I can stand (surprisingly hard to eat more than 200g/day), plus green leafy vegetables and tea.
