following: The Paleo Diet
performance: losing 4.0 lb a week
Complacent 30 something who has reached his fattest and laziest and is ready to turn it around. I think that what I like about the Paleo diet is that is is cut and dry, binary, and easily digested into a series of yes and no's. No measuring in exchange for drastic restrictions of staples of my former diet. It is expensive as f#@k, which actually helps me with portion control, as I'm thinking of it from a frugality stand point. I am also appreciating my food as fuel more because I have to prepare it. Now I take the time to savor it. There are so many great savory things that I can eat, that I really haven't missed restricted items. And I'm cooking like crazy.
Hopefully paired with resurrecting my work-out, I can give myself a healthier foundation and treat my bod better so it ages well.
28-year old guy living in Jersey City. I am a free-lance Casting Producer for reality TV shows. Ironically, I worked on a Lifetime show called Cook Yourself Thin, where I realized I've packed on maybe 50+ pounds in the past few years.
I just moved from Philly (where my boyfriend still lives and starting a catering company). I used to commute to New York, which meant four hours a day being sedentary on a bus, and fast food the only available lunch, dinner late at night when I got home. I think moving closer and cutting out that commute will help me.
I am in a relationship with a skinny person who eats atrociously horrible delicious food in large quantities with no consequences. I think he's actually getting skinnier. It's frustrating.
Outside of that, I'm an irreverent goof who likes music, reading, swearing, and creative projects in whatever capacity.
I'd like to lose 40-50lbs, and ideally just live healthier. I am also trying to quit smoking. Frankly, I see a lot of older people who have destroyed their bodies and I don't want to do that.
Plus, I'm getting neck fat. I never want to have neck fat.
