    -Fat loss is a priority for now, that’s why I’m that low on calories. I will get as many gains as I can from NLP and move to another, easier to sustain, program when I won’t be able to continue. Something like this, perhaps. That being said…
    -I have pretty good energy levels and workouts are as easy as they get, even when I’m very low on carbs (100 g). I think it has to do with better recovery: drinking less alcohol by night and sleeping 1-1’5 hours more than before on average.
    -Vertical diet is working fine by now, both on losing weight and lifting weights. I find myself a lot more relaxed on what I eat than when I’m on medium carb, low fat diet. I’m pretty sensitive to carbs, too. Not adhering to it to a 100% yet, but getting there. I’m missing cranberry juice, and I’m not eating eggs every day.
    -My DL is 77 lbs ahead of my squat. I’m on point, according to Robert Santana.
    -Bench press is still my weakest lift.
