OK, so here is my proposed 8 day emergency "I just saw a picture of myself in San Diego this weekend and I only have 8 days until I leave for Hawaii and I want to barf" eating plan. KNOWING THAT THIS IS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO MAKE ANY REAL CHANGE but wanting to at least feel better about myself, I am looking for hacks from successful paleos.

Coffee with cream (mostly decaf with a splash of the caffeinated)

Sipping broth during the day (both homemade and free-range store bought)

compressed eating window of 5 hours, meat with perhaps some green leafy (do get grass-fed)

maybe 1 piece of fruit a day if I have a sweet craving

Loads of water (completely normal for me).

Help?!? TPSW

PSMF - Protein Sparing Modified Fast


Avoid all fruits/sugars, limit calories, mostly lean meat

High intensity workout every 2 days for 15-20 min if you want to retain muscle

It's not fun if you're not in ketosis, first few days will be hunger pains. I was able to drop 4-8 lbs a week while already lower bodyfat, but it's sheer willpower til you're in ketosis , must resist rewarding yourself for exercise too.
