It's been just over a month. It has definitely changed my attitudes toward my daily diet. I generally eat a lot in the mornings, and a solid 500 calorie breakfast of roughly equal fats/carbs/protein seems to set me up wonderfully. I'm paying a lot more attention to how certain foods make me feel throughout the day.
As a result, I've modified the ratios slightly so that I'm eating more fat and slightly less carbs per day. Too many carbohydrates me feel very sluggish, and I seem to do better with fats in my diet. I also want to keep my lifts up, so I'm getting generally between 140g - 160g of protein per day. I may try to fit in more as time goes on. Again, no problems with staying or feeling full.
My weight fluctuates but I'm levelling out at 75kg - 76 kg. It's a negligible loss, but I'd prefer to take things slow and experiment, since I've only just started logging what I eat. It's probably psychological but the mini-paunch certainly feels more forgiving. Still lifting, will probably introduce more conditioning throughout the week (running or rowing at the end of sessions).
Just a note: but my general health is pretty good, too. It's easy to underappreciate when you're shooting for a goal, but just keeping an eye on how you're sleeping, mental fogginess throughout the day, and signs of general health is important. It would be no use to be 10% bodyfat but feel like shit.
