How was Captain America week for me? Starting weight: 209.5lbs. Ending weight: 215.8lbs. I don’t know if my metabolism improved but in terms of weight ‘loss’, it was a disaster!

So what went wrong? It started off quite well, except that the advice about calorie intake was meaningless for me: I had no idea how many calories I’d been eating normally, so I couldn’t cut that down by 100.
