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
Vit C

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.

Make your search engine your friend. Research Health and Nutrition. Educate yourself and you can't fail to become healthy and fit. You'll love how you feel.

You need a rest day after a good training day with weights. Your muscle tissue needs a day to repair and build. Don't over do it. You won't get the gains you want. If you go hardcore.. do arms and upper body one day and do legs the next, ect. You'll get there buddy.

Hey buddy. Your belly fat is the last to go. Google Ab Cutting Diet. It is very close to Atkins and will help you with those last few pounds of belly fat. What you put in your mouth is 80% of the battle. Some cardio at this point will help also. Crunches or situps won't make you burn belly fat.

good luck

I reached my goal!
Awesome job. Another success story. I took off 110 lbs in 2010 and have kept it off without diet for the past 2 years. The secret is not going on diet. Just learn how many calories your body burns in a day and don't go over it. It takes time at first to log your food to realize how many calories you consume but becomes second nature after a while. I have realized how I can eat tons of food and never feel hungry by avoiding by wrong types of carbs. I don't deprive myself of anything. A treat once in a while is fine. Moderation is the key for sure.

Again great job. The side effect of losing weight and getting yourself in shape is a much longer healthier life. Enjoy all that extra energy I know you have now.

Legs and Thighs
Climb the stairs 2 at a time. It's free. Leg muscles are huge and will burn calories and help you to burn fat. At the same time it will build new muscle tissue all around your thighs. Taking the stairs 2 at a time is a lower form of impact on your joints. Take your time to avoid injury.

Protein!! How to get it all in
Liquid egg whites in the carton is cheap and a high source of protein. Salmon is another favourite of mine. Great protein and good source of healthy fat omega 3. There is such a thing as too little fat in your diet don't go below your low limit level. Many people suffer from depression from a diet too low in healthy fat. Fat is essential to good health.

Eat lean protein and slow carbs an hour or so before a workout and protein and some fast carbs soon after a workout. Fat with pre and post workout meals will slow digestion so avoid it. Slow carbs before helps with energy to last your workout, fast carbs after your workout helps shunt the protein into your muscles and helps replenish glycogen stores in your body.

If you haven't gone over your calorie count for the day and your real hungry at night before bed have some slow protein. A casein protein shake or some 1% cottage cheese. Casein protein will digest real slow and feed your muscles over a long period. That old saying don't eat after 5 is a load of crap. You just have to be smart what and how much you consume. Casein protein is good for the body. Most people are too weak and cant control themselves after having just a little food and begin to binge. Just be aware of that issue and you'll be fine.

My favourite protein powder is Ultra Peptide by Xtream Formulations. It is a whey/casein protein blend with the right amount of healthy fat and a very small amount of carbs with awesome flavours.
My favourite protein bar is QuestBar 20 grams of protein and almost as much fiber. There isn't any junk in these bars and they taste great. Many protein bars are very close to candy bars with lots of unwanted crap in them. Choose your protein bar carefully.

Maybe a little too much extra info there but good for others to know.

Good luck
