Lightfoot actually talked me into the keto diet as well. I have stringently followed the diet (not one fucking carb over Thanksgiving weekend! ask @Odin) and I started some pretty heavy duty lifting with a friend and co-worker as well. Like, the last upper body workout he and I did was a 2,500 calorie burn according to my heart monitor.
Anyways, we just finished up the second week of that program and, though it's mostly water weight, I'm already down 14 lbs, I usually weigh myself on Mondays and tend to have my "wooshes" over the weekend so we'll see where I'm at tomorrow.
My lifting program has escalated to six days a week though, thankfully, somewhat shorter workouts (push, pull, legs, push, pull, legs, rest) of around six top eight exercises.
This goes for four weeks and then we move on to the 5x5 strong lifts for probably around five months or so and then on to mad cow.
