My Zero Carb Experience

I do get asked very frequently about my diet. It’s common knowledge that I am not like other people, I mean not having eaten any grains or sugar since 2008 probably qualifies me as a bit odd. Since moving to a Paleo diet in 08 I have tried pretty much everything that revolves around low […]

Half Way Done

I had to laugh when I re-read my last post, my optimism about my weight was so cute… When I decided I needed to cut a bit again it was because at work I had weighed in for the Biggest Loser contest at a whopping 248lbs. Being that close to 250 was a real wake […]

2 Weeks Of Change

So I got a new fitbit from Costco. It’s a Charge HR again but the big news is that it now comes with a stopwatch!! I have also decided that since paying attention to the work I am doing isn’t really keeping me engaged I would try something else and it’s going to be a […]

Hold On. This Isn’t Going To Be Pretty. But You Need To Hear This.

Sometimes I feel like this. It’s no big secret that I think today’s adults are just whiny petulant children who need a good slap to set them straight. From adult colouring books to the obesity epidemic their lives are about narcissistic instant self gratification. They blame everyone else for their problems and refuse to take […]

Nerd Alert – The Science Of Ketosis Based Diets

I came across this exceptional explanation of the science behind why the keto diet (restricting carbs to under 25g a day) is so successful. In fact, when you look at the processes by which your body uses energy and how it creates that energy from stored fat or ingested food it’s incredibly complex. However it […]

It’s been a long and successful one, tomorrow I will have poutine for lunch to celebrate and after that I am off work for vacation for a week. The question is how to transition into what is essentially just adding another meal to the day without going overboard, throwing off my keto and allowing the […]

What does my daily food look like?

I have been asked this a lot the last couple of weeks. Basically what has worked? Well, here is my response to someone who emailed me. Your story has a familiar ring to it for me. I never really knew what worked and what didn’t and when I did lose weight I would eventually put […]

The Last 5 Pounds – 50lbs Down. Almost There.

So I am very fortunate to be in this situation. This cut has been the most successful cut I have ever done, I am actually within a cat’s whisker of being my final goal weight which is 100kg or 220lbs. It’s also a little bit awkward because since my “diets” haven’t ever managed to get […]

Coasting In A Good Place

I have to admit I am in a bit of a coasting phase right now, my focus is primarily on my weight cut and as such I am basically cycling through the same workouts over and again. The cycle looks something like this. Bench, flys and pullovers for chest Pullups and deadlifts for back Squats […]

Finally A Working Cut

Tags:

Started June 6 at 250, after 16 days I am down 11.2 lbs. 800 calorie deficit seems to be the right amount for me. What has helped? Cutting dairy almost completely (that means not drinking milk for me). I still have a bit of cheese for breakfast and milk in coffee but I have stopped […]
