So, alot of you know my history. Anyway, I was at about 300 when I moved to India. I still retain much of the muscle from when I lifted daily, but I let it slide. Career, blah blah. No excuse. Just happened. Anyway, I am about 260 now, after two months in Goa. I have lost about 4 inches on my waist. This is real fucking fast. I haven't weighed, so I can't be precise, but the amount is DRASTIC. I am down a shirt size. Pants I brought that wouldn't come within several inches of buttoning now fit fine, and are loosening up to require a belt. Allow me to explain: 1 day out of 3, I have been seriously ill. Initial traveller's diahrea/cold/flu symptoms, then what was probably Typhus (OH MY JESUS GOD, OW MY FUCKING GULLET), and yesterday food poisoning. That means I either haven't eaten those days, or have eaten a serious caloric deficit, or I haven't absorbed what I have eaten. I'm on my third round of antibiotics, but this time its just for 3 days. Yes, I know thats not good, yes I am being more careful about where/what I eat. When I haven't been ill, I have been training hard on my bike (piece of shit single speed with half inflated (max they go) 7cm or so tires). I burn about 3K calories on my long rides twice weekly, with more leasurely rides on days in between. I swim in the pool for laps often, I swim in the ocean daily, diving under breakers. I walk... I am really active. I carb load before long rides. I eat carbs and protein afterwards. When I'm well, my nutrition is really good: slight deficit on "off days," except for carb loading evening/morning before long rides. But I know that losing weight this fast is unhealthy. Loose skin... lets face it, I have that when I thin out anyway. When I was a built 235 in Moscow, I had "utters" on my belly when I bent over. There's no way around it... so this is not a concern. But what are the other risks? Cause at this rate, I'm going to come back with a normal level of bodyfat. And it ain't gonna take long. India is the world's most effective fat farm. No fast food (outside of major cities), most of its healthy and... all natural laxitives. Plus a hell of alot of winding roads on which to cycle.
