Since my time away from working out, I've had that little extra time to think, and I've come to a perhaps obvious conclusion to those with the time to read.

My diet sucks, and that's why I haven't lost any weight. The workouts are great, no issues there, but those don't cause fat loss unless you're swimming 2 hours 6 days a week totaling 1.7 miles in the water per day. Back then, I was scarfing down 5 dollar bags of cheetos and losing weight. I don't work out anything close to that though.

Since I seem to be glucose intolerant in my old age, I'm going to try something I've never done before, and that's Atkin's diet. I expect it will be grueling, especially considering the weekend job at the bakery. Once I get sorted out on that for a few weeks, I'll resume working out. I expect to lose weight rather quickly, as my dad has lost alot of weight quickly anytime he did Atkin's diet and stuck with it for two weeks.

So, let's see how it works out. Posts will be short and pretty much related only to diet since I won't be exercising much (not alot of time for it lately anyways).

Wish me luck!


  1. Try replacing one meal a day with home made vegetable soup.

    Easy to do, and worked for me.
    Boil 1/2 pan of water, drop in chicken stock cube, chunk of sliced cabbage, carrots, handful of lentils, tin of chopped tomato's.
    Pinch of mixed herbs, can add lean meat such as chicken if you want.
    Boil for 30mins, then use hand blender to mush it up. Take a bowl out to eat, split the rest into containers (I get three meals out of a pan) drop into fridge for the next day.

    Tastes good, and you'll loose weight/detox at the same point.
