following: jmb3450's own diet
performance: gaining 2.3 lb a week

Male, 56 years old, married, 7 kids between my wife and myself, 4 grandkids, was very athletic and in great shape in my youth but years of poor eating habits resulted in coronary artery disease, 5 stents in my arteries, and pre-diabetic blood sugar levels.

May 1, 2014 I got to the point where I was ready to seriously take control of my health and since have been working on eating better, exercising, and losing weight. I’ve gone from having difficulty walking due to my back injuries, to being able to walk with ease and jog with little pain. Lab work on my blood is much better than before, cholesterol levels now excellent and blood sugar is in the normal range. My initial goal weight is 190lbs, where I'll re-evaluate and maybe set a new goal.


Heaviest known weight: 279 lbs.
Weight May 1, 2014: 254 lbs
October 10, 2014 – 221.8 lbs, over halfway to my goal.

Metabolism: Myths and manipulation.
Very helpful, thanks. Especially interesting is the study the "myths" article linked to that shows drinking water to stay hydrated during exercise helps increase metabolic efficiency in the muscles during the exercise, if I'm understanding the results correctly.

Eating Plans for the Super Bowl - watcha gonna do?
I did a "test" of the Superbowl pizza tonight, here it is. As made it's a 10" thin crust pizza, 700 calories, man was it good. It's a keeper for Sunday!

Lynn915RN, nothing wrong with that plan. Extra money sounds great and you can always watch the commercials later, I think they're available on youtube or something like that.
