Over my cutting phase, I ate.. Deep Dish Pizza, Ice Cream, Oreoes, Cheesecake, Carrot Cake, Sponge Cake, Coffee Cake, Cookies, Chips, Chocolate, Cheeseburgers, Mango with Sticky Rice (my favorite dessert in the world), and a ton of other things considered "unhealthy".
Success! I was able to drop 17 lbs in 17 weeks (181 -> 164) and even got featured on a fitness YouTuber's before and after video!
With COVID-19 and stay at home orders, I'm looking to drop 16 lbs over the next 16 weeks -- from 181 down to 165.
I was able to hit my sub-170 weight but my body fat % is nowhere close to where I wanted it to be. I had the most success when I was disciplined about hitting my daily protein goals without too big of a calorie deficit.
Traveling solo forced me to meet people and most of the plans I made on this trip were based off of recommendations from locals and other travelers. Ended up being an amazing trip and I'm convinced Maui is one of the most beautiful natural places in the world.
