My diet was already very good, but since starting the program I began counting calories again to make sure I am getting all the protein. My original intent was to cut calories by a few hundred, but I find I am so hungry that I just can't do it. But I am between 1500-1800 calories most days, which is still good, and getting 125 grams of protein a day.
I have been gaining crazy strength on this program. I made it through two complete sets of 10 should presses using 20 lb. dumbbells and made it to 7 reps on the last set. Now, if only I would start to lose some fat . . .
