    This one is for those looking to decrease bodyfat and reduce weight. As we all know, calorie deficit is the biggest factor that determines weight loss so this challenge will only address calorie deficit. Here's how it works. You state your caloric intake level that you will shoot for every day for the next 30 days. Each day, you will update your post with your actual caloric intake for that day. Post your initial weight and weight at the end of the challenge. (you can also include bodyfat % if you really want to get technical).

    Note: for those of u not sure about your target caloric intake, use this calculator: http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

    Also, you can use fitday.com to log your daily calories to make things easier.

    comment: so this concludes the challenge. I've definately lost a good amount of weight despite going over my caloric limit quite a few days. For most days I was also going pretty low carb (50-100g/day) up until the last week where my lifts and energy started tanking. No doubt that much of the weight lost was water especially due to the low carbs but I am confident in saying that at least 1-2 lbs was fat. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing as I (stupidly) didn't take bodyfat%, but all my clothes are much looser.
