I'm on my feet talking a lot at my job and have been working out about 5 days a week. I'm on a diet right now. The only one that works for me is to strictly count calories and keep it around 2000 or less. I know that is a lot more than the 20% cut most people on here advocate, but only the dramatic calorie cut keeps me motivated. I've tried more moderate plans and I can't hack them. My weigh in day was Sunday, the day before which I ate cake 3 times and didn't workout - still ending up 2 pounds lighter than the previous week. The last 2 days I'm down another 3-4 pounds in the morning, feel like hammered shit, and I feel like re-hydrating is a problem. I've been pounding water and tea. No alcohol. Very little coffee. No other drinks of any kind. Moderate sodium. Any advice? I know the obvious advice is to moderate my diet more, but I can't do that, so any advice on helping me hack this one?
