following: kzanika's own diet
performance: losing 2.3 lb a week
I am 47 year old Computer Engineer. I have been as heavy as 305 pounds at one point during my 20s. In those days I used to power lift in the Gym 4 days a week an average of 3 hours solid and was eating 5000-6000 calories a day.
Since 18 the lightest I have been was 191 pounds in 1994, by 2006 I was back up to 240.
In 2009 I was at 278 pounds, I visited England for a week, during my visit I noticed how portions are about 1/3 of the size of portions in the United States. I also noticed how physically active the British were compared to Americans. I decided it was time to shed the weight, specially since my feet were killing me at the end of my 10 hour days standing the entire time.
I am determined to hit 180 pounds by age 50, no 2 ways about it. I want to lose weight so I can remain as healthy as possible for my young children. My youngest will turn 5 in July and the last thing I want for him is an old broken fat father by the time he is 18!
