How do you figure? Eggs and bacon are not going to give you a heart attack.

Down to 14.3% from 20.6% in one month!

I just started taking cider vinegar, that's really cool. Nice to see that you dropped so much while still on lentils too!

I got a 35lb bell, and that was just about right to start. Walmart online was the cheapest place I found (mostly because there's 97cent shipping).

Legumes? Are they necessary?

If you're eating enough veggies, then you're fine. Some people drop legumes when they stall, and I think they leave it out of the last mile.

Cheat Day timing.

It would be hard (especially being new to the diet) to go 11 days without cheating. I'd recommend having the first cheat day on Saturday, and then continue from there.

Of course you can skip it, you can do whatever you want. I wouldn't recommend it though. Cheat day is helpful in that it restores muscle glycogen and for most of us there are huge psychological b...
