I'm going to give you a brief update on your host's progress. Since my last photo update in September, you'll certainly be happy to know that I'm chugging along.
It was quite some time ago when I was reading some stuff by Clarence Bass (make sure you see his photo at 70-years-old), where he said, "Lose fat slowly." I'm not even certain of his reasoning, but I tend to defer to guys that old (like Art), so credible in appearance. So, I've never worried about it. I typically drop ten pounds or so, hang out for 2-3 months, up & down, with every weight peak just a bit lower than the last, and then it kicks off again.
You see, with paleo / EvFit / Primal, you just never ought to have a worry. You're are applying sound, logical, 4-million-year-tested principles to your very own life. The source of my passion and what drives this blog: it has been well over a year since I even had a shadow of a doubt that this worked: unequivocally. And I'm not just talking weight; I'm talking fat loss, muscle gain, hugely increased energy, better blood markers: the whole enchilada to employ a bad metaphor. It works, and it works for everyone, every time, across the board.
It's how you were designed to eat. But, you're always welcome to eat inferior.
So, since that last update, at around 190, I went from there to 195, to 187 at the lowest, and bounced back-&-forth continuously, all the time getting stronger and stronger in the gym. I'm really impressed with the amount of muscle I've gained in my legs, and am now up to typically doing 3 sets of 10 inclined leg presses each at about 450, followed by a burn off at around 300, 15-20 reps. Where I could not do a single dead hang pull-up a year ago, I can now do 4-5 before I have to start kipping it up to the bar, then I can do lots more.
So, I hit my lowest weight since around 1994 the other day: 183.
I'm headed to Puerto Vallarta on Saturday. Believe it or not, I plan to lose fat during my vacation. Hunger for me, now, is almost non-existent. You saw that photo melange from the camping trip. I lost weight there, too.
I'll see if I can get out some pics of me en vacanceses. With tan in hand.
