I'm just going to use this thread to track my progress eating and living the primal lifestyle. I'll give some stats.
(Please, any and all feedback is appreciated.)
-21 year old male
-Las Vegas Nevada(Grok meets the strip, hilarity ensues?)
-I go to school, work, and have a girlfriend, so my life is pretty busy. The short, intense workouts will fit well into my schedule.
-I'm 5'11" and 182.6 lbs(I was 184.6 when I started the diet a few days ago) I'd guess my bodyfat is in the 15-17% range.
-I'm about 90% primal in my diet. I rarely eat dairy(the occasional piece of cheese). I eat some organics, but not 100% as I can't afford it with paying for school and rent.
-Primal since: 09/01/09
And some goals:
-Get down to about 170 lbs. I figure my bodyfat will be significantly lower at 170. Once I get to 170 i'll try to get my bodyfat tested at the gym.
-Sub 10% bodyfat
-Get stronger. I've been half assed bodybuilding for the past two years, working out and giving up after a few months. So I have some base strength, but a lot of room for improvement.
-Increase grip strength- I have some Captains of Crush grippers that I need to put back into use. I'm also looking into other methods of grip training. I think grip strength is a very practical attribute to have.
-Increase flexibility-Another practical attribute. Once I come into some more money i'd like to start training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and having good flexibility and grip strength will be very helpful.
I'll assess where I'm at by the end of October and go from there. At some point I'm interested in adding muscle, but for now I'm focused on getting lean.
