I did it.

Male 6 ft 3 in.
Plan: Strict Induction
Stats: 200/195/180
Progress: 25%
Default I did it.

My peak weight was 215lbs. Now, I've gotten down to the low 160s, in a matter of months. I fit my growth curve perfectly according to the doctor, I have a clean bill of health with good bloodwork.

In terms of weightlifting: I've managed to double my lifts while dropping body fat. Now, I'm re-adding a moderate amount of carbs to my diet while lean bulking.

What got me through the diet was:
1. Lots of meat. I was eating probably double the recommended amount.
2. Hershey's Nuggets Special Dark with Almonds- 4.5g of net carbs each, satiates cravings for sugar once I was out of Induction.
3. Hardcore dedication. I adhered to Induction for weeks, and gradually began adding more carbs.

So, that's it.
