following: dryphtyr's own diet
performance: losing 2.1 lb a week
I've been overweight my whole life. I am in the process of changing that. I was doing everything right when I first attempted to get my health in order. I worked out 6 days a week, 45 to 60 minutes per day. I was eating a very rigid diet of 2200 calories per day. 40% protein, 40% carb, 20% fat. No exceptions, no variance. I very slowly lost weight. Felt ok, but the workouts were long & hard. The diet required constant analysis to make sure I was on track. I couldn't go out with friends to dinner for fear of throwing my proportions out of whack. The next phase was following a basic, calorie restricted, mainly whole foods diet. I had decent results with that. Then I hit a brick wall. I couldn't drop a pound for anything. I recently began a low carb routine & am getting very promising results. I follow High Intensity Training (HIT) for my workouts, usually 2 or 3 days per week for 20 minutes per session. Hopefully I'll reach my goal soon.
