I've been exercising and dieting diligently for the last 2 weeks and I've lost 1lb and 1 inch off my waist so far.
Today, however, I had a 1.25lbs (560gr) ribeye steak (weighed raw) with about 2 cups of broccoli for lunch. The steak was cooked with 2tbsp of homemade butter, and about 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. I estimate this meal to be around 2,000kcal.
I've been on a 1,600 kcal diet. I haven't worked out yet, but I usually burn anywhere between 300 to 500 kcals working out (workout for 45 mins with an average bpm of 150)
Also, I did not eat the big layers of fat in the steak, just the meat.
How much work have I reversed? I'm a 5'9" (175cm) 29yo male who weighs 253lb (114kg) if that helps.
