    Default My Status

    A little over a month ago, I asked you gentlemen how to lose this frelling weight and get back into shape. A month ago, you gentlemen pointed me to the PALEO diet, which I started. Quit milk, most all dairy products, ‘cept eggs but cut back. Bread has also disappeared from my diet. Try as I might, I could not give up my morning breakfast of oatmeal.
    Being a meat and potato man most of my life, changing to vegetables has been a big undertaking.

    I also started AMOK training twice a week and personal work outs 2 other times during the week. I usually take the weekend off, but working out of town during the week, my wife has plenty for me to do when I get home.

    I am happy to say that I have lost 25+ lbs and about 2” in the waist. My Blood sugar stays in the Good – to – Great range, and one of the meds that I take has been removed. My Goal is to get below 200, which I haven’t seen in quite a few years.

    What has surprised me is that I have not lost any energy and how easy it has been to change. I am really enjoying the NEW foods that I am eating. Hopefully I will get the wife to get on this plan, so I am not tempted during the weekends.

    Anyway, thought I would let you all know. And thanks for all the suggestions.

    Outstanding! But in my opinion if Oatmeal is your vice, you are a lead pipe cinch to win this struggle!
