Weight History

Start Weight

Current Weight

Performance: losing 2.5 lb a week

Goal Weight
180.0 lb
Still to go: 6.6 lb
45 Y/O male, ex-athlete, single father of three. Eleven hours a day in office workaholic, plus 2 additional hours at home. Not a whole lot of time for play and/or exercise these days.

My initial starting weight was 199lbs. I got down to 177lbs, and then decided to bulk up. I slowly added 2-3 lbs per week of what seemed like muscle since my clothes were fitting better than ever and measurements were where I expected them to be. Went on a 2 week vacation and lost my mind in July. So now I'm back up to 194lbs and clothes are tight.

I think its time to get back down to 175lbs.

Time to start all over again
Confused I was a little bummed out, but not too much anymore. I was doing the 10 in 12 days diet, which appeared to be working just as advertised. Then I went on a ski vacation. Needless to say I blew out all my hard work in just 6 short days. I had been at my lowest weight in a few years and then....right back up to 191 lbs. Good thing for me is I know it was mostly water weight.

So what is the 10 in 12 diet?

This is not the SLOW CARB DIET. Carbs are slashed to almost nothing on this diet.

It's a diet plan that teaches your body how to use good fats to your advantage, and then burn off only fat as energy.

We all know that when losing weight the process is:

1. Burn alcohol
2. Burn muscle
3. Burn fat

So based on the example above the idea is to burn off more fat than you do muscle. But how do you reverse the order of your muscle/fat burn? Believe me, it's not easy and you absolutely have to be disciplined. But remember, it's only for 12 days and it's not healthy to try and go beyond the 12 days.

Exercise is not necessary on this diet, but it sure does accelerate your fat loss.

If you're interested in learning more let me know and I'll help you out.

4 Hour Body Challenge
Thanks,

I just might be hitting you up. I make it work very well as is, but I don't put a lot of effort into the exercise portion because of lower back issues.

4 Hour Body Challenge
Anyone out there interested in starting a new 4-hour body challenge? I'm looking to work with someone or a group of people to help me push myself behind my current results.

I'm proposing a two month plan beginning in 2 weeks which would be April 2nd, 2012.

Let me know if anyone is interested.
