Hi there, I'm James. I was a skinny kid who grew into a muscled up teen and young man, who then got lazy and grew into a chubby, then fat man. I'm married, own some land, and have two young kids. My wife and I were 126 pounds and 192 pounds respectively and very physically active when we moved in together many years ago -- but that didn't last. As it turns out, domestication can lead to late mornings, missed runs and training, and much larger, unhealthy meals.

Our little girls are 4 and 1, and we live on 6 acres. My wife and I both decided recently that if we're going to keep up with these kids, or be able to anything on our land, we are going to have to cut the crap -- out of our diets, that is! We've been following a high fat low carb diet, aiming for ketosis, for about five weeks as of the time of this bio (Jan. 11, 2018) and we've both seen some decent changes.

I'm down to one meal a day, with very few exceptions, and about 1500 calories. For a little point of reference, I weighed 328 pounds at Thanksgiving. I'm sitting at 297 this morning. My goal is to once again hit that 195 mark. I did it about a decade ago, but I was a decade younger, single, and kid free. I went from size 44 pants to a size 34 in 7 months. I was at 192 and had a six-pack. Now I'm back in a size 44. Let's see how long it takes me to hit a 34 this time ...
