I started at 6'3" 333 a little over a week ago, a BMI of 40.9. Definitely not great. A BMR calculator has my maintenance level for that height/weight at around 2700.
I started religiously journaling my meals, resolving to eat less garbage, drinking a lot more water (about 2100ml a day is what I can do comfortably).
I'm averaging roughly 1600cal per day now after doing this for about a week. Hunger was annoying, but after about day 3, that stopped being as much of an issue. I think my appetite is slowly being recalibrated. Macros for the week average 25% carbs, 48% fat, 27% protein.
Anyways. Exactly a week in, after a morning weigh-in, I got 326. 7 pounds a week seems ridiculously good from a progress standpoint, and I know there's no way in heck I can maintain that pace.
I've made no changes other than diet. I work a desk/IT job, doing a lot of late nights, and spend a lot of time sitting with nothing other than an under-desk elliptical to keep moving. I have started no special exercise program.
I'm curious how long I can expect this level of progress. I know there's no way on earth I can (or probably should!) maintain a 7 pounds per week pace. What can I reasonably expect to see a few months in the future if I stay at this diet and activity level?
