12 week weight loss challenge completed

This entry is part 53 of 181 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

My wife and I just finished a 12 week weight loss challenge our city puts on. Just before it started I “leveled the playing field” by eating carbs for a few days which had the “desired” effect of making we gain a whole lot of (mostly water) weight that took about a week to keto off. So how did I do? Well, my first official weigh in was 247.8 and the weigh in from this morning was 213.2 – that represents a 13.96% loss; we’ll call it 14% for short. Just for reference my bathroom scale says I weigh 210.9 – but that’s with far less clothing =). It was a competition in percentage of weight lost (as opposed to total weight) . The last 3 times I did it the overall winners have been in the 17-21% loss range, The men’s winners have been in the 15-9% range and the women’s have been in the 12-14% range. So I doubt I’ll win overall but I just might win the male division. I’ll find out in a few days when they email out the final results.

update!

Well, results are in: I got second place and won the male division. The winner lost 21.76% and third place lost 12.92%

    Congratulations, this is a great accomplishment! I’ve been doing my own variant of the People Chow recipe for about a year, and am now making the switch over to a ketogenic version. Your series of blog posts on this have been great, thank you! My weight now is about the same you started keto at, so I’m curious to how many calories per day you are doing currently to achieve this rate of loss? Also, are you doing 100% soylent each week or are you having a few “regular” low/no carb meals as well?

      Well, this week I ate 3 “normal food” meals and 18 meals of Keto Chow. I also usually eat some cheese or jerky so I’m probably around 1400 – 1500 calories a day of food.
