I'm 48 and now feel like I'm 25 again, but I'm probably in better shape than most 25 year olds lol.
There is going to be some young guys this summer that are going to be jealous of the old mans abs !
Update, summer is now over :( thats the sad part but I had more fun than I can tell you. < wink > More fun than I've had in years and years.
I've also transitioned back into a regular diet from Atkins. Still on the low carb side. I researched food high in anti oxidants, food that helps burn fat, low glycemic fruit, high fiber veggies, high quality sources of protein, foods high in omega3. All of the above I include in my diet. I eat within 30 mins of waking up. The sooner the better. I eat every 3 to 4 hours, never going more than 5 waking hours without food. A little protein at each meal. If I'm hungry late at night or want a bedtime snack and it's been 5 hours since dinner I only snack on 125 grams of low fat cottage cheese. It's a slow digesting protein and will prevent some of your muscle from being lost during the night.
I never neglect to drink my water. Steady spread out during the course of the day.
I take A good multi vitamin
Vitamin B100 complex
Calcium with vit D3 and magnesium
Omega3 fish oils
Vit A, Vit E
I do 30 to 40 minutes resistance training 3 to 4 times per week. No cardio machines. No expensive gym membership for me. Some dumbbells, pull up bar. That's all you need.
