    How I got 40 pounds lighter (From 270 - 230):

    Total Diet Change, no red meat, more rice and veggies and no sodas or sugar stuff (it is down to a minimum)

    Workout 5 times a week:

    3 Cardio Days (One day included Football for about 4 hours)

    2 Strength Training Days.

    But the Diet was first without the diet, the exercise is a waste of time.

    :cardio:

    Great job!

    When I quit teching I had maxed at 279.

    This week I hit 226. Youre absolutely correct. I cant play any contact sports (not until an insurance claim is settled) but I been doing plenty of walking in-between catching the MARTA. But I also gave up red meat (except when I sometimes hit Taco Ball. lol!), and also foundd that cutting chicken to a minimum helps. No more wing stops. Also stopped eating cereal so not even low-fat mlk. Cheese and some ocasional Blue Bell is at a minimum. Its now mostly wate, nuts, trail mix and Arizona tea for me (I cant afford anything else). I forgot so this is an edit. My weakness is Dr. Pepper!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Good Points Omo, also the Fried foods I got rid off, and I lost a lot that way.

    The man thing is getting your heart rate up ya know, if you can get the heart rate up (Which I think comes from dieting, because the diet gives you the energy to increase your hear that fast), you will be good to go.

    Yeah...I know. I went backwards after taking that Cardio class then started smoking again.

    Dumb me. Smoking causes dehydration so drinking more water goes up in smoke.

    You will get it back man. You may already have it, riding and catching the Marta is a serious workout both mentally and psychically LOL.

    Don't forget the third aspect...sleep. In order to keep a high level of energy you can't discount the amount of sleep.

    (1) What you consume and how much of it you get
    (2) How much exercise you get
    (3) How much sleep you get

    The golden three. What you consume not only means what you put into your body in the form of food but it also means what you put into your brain. No sense being in shape physically and not being in shape mentally. You have to get the correct amounts of all three for your body. I say your body because the same amounts of all three are not going to be the same for everyone. You have to find what the balance is for all three for your body. For example, people keep telling me to get 8 hours of sleep. My body only takes 7 hours. People say only work out 3 days a week but I currently work out 4 days a week.

    The thing is that balancing all three should be a life-long process. You may not ever get all three balanced perfectly but the goal objective is to work to get all three in balance. Start now and never stop.

    Sleep deprivation is a problem. Been that way since starting UCLA 30 years ago. Cant turn my brain off. Sleep does help me to burn fat. LOL!
