                  Awesome man. I actually think maybe you lost a little too much weight? you looked pretty bad ass in the UFC and black shirt pic, what weight were those at and what are you now? (maybe it's about the same weight but the clothes make you look fuller...)
                  I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                    I've been thinking the samething lately. I was 191 in that ufc pic, im 160 now. Thing is I might less than due to the surgery. I still have a lil extra skin. I realize now I will never be able to have a visual six pack because of it unless I do another tuck. After going thru the first one im seriously good on that idea. But I went thru a series of pain killers/antibiotics, so my flora is pretty jacked up right now. Going to a GI soon. So im kinda at a loss right now on what to do til then.

                        Hit the gym bro and add some muscle to that frame! Amazing accomplishment. I only have about 40lbs left to lose, so I have no excuses when I see stories like yours.

                          Chochobo, thanks for sharing the collage! Truly amazing.

                          I believe you could get a visual six-pack without another tuck, just by building up your core with heavy compound moves like squats and deadlifts. Like others in this thread I'm very interested to see what six months of powerlifting would do for you.

                            thanks tim.

                            yes im going to try powerlifting, since ive lost the weight ive only done px90/ufc/hiit type training regimens been that way for 2yrs, my core is pretty strong since i dont do ab workouts just core exercises like yoga, planks and such. as far as lbm i think im right where i need to be which is about 9-10%BF but i for sure need to add bulk. i may have to refrain from heavier cardio and just focus on heavy lifting. i play golf 4 times a week carrying the bag which is about 25lbs so that can be my cardio type till i get where i want to be. Also i dont have a sedentary job so im on my feet all day. Any advice would be appreciated.

                                First lets start by saying going primal is the best thing to happen to me besides renewing my faith to god but thats another story, anyway...

                                Please forgive me in advance for the long story, but its something i went thru and i hope u enjoy the read.

                                To give u an understanding of how much i lost here is me when i started, not sure how big i was(and i do regret not weighing myself, but i was scared) but talkin to ppl i think i was over 395 lbs. Unfortunately i dont have any images of me at my heaviest but its the closest one i got.

                                Wearing a 5xl shirt almost 6xl, 58-60 waist line, it was very difficult to find clothes for myself. Now ive been big most of my life, in the 9th grade i was 275lbs and i never went down only up. At this time i was not even on SAD, it was strictly fast foods, maybe a liter of soda a day no sweat. Dont get me started on sweets, i can throw down a box of doughnuts in 10mins. Man looking back i dont know i how ate like that, lol. I came to a point in my life where i just got tired of all the loneliness and hard times of moving around huffin and puffin, hence the image of me smokin pot. My sleep was very scarey for ppl around me, other than the sound of a lion comin out of my mouth, the frequent not breathing was worse. So i decided to change.

                                I wanted to start fierce and fast. Cold turkey on fast foods, especially soda. Only problem was i started way to fast, in the first 4 days i was running hard, after the 5th day, being that big i had a mild stroke. Come to find out i had mild angina in the bottom of my heart. So after the scare of that i gradually started walking, changed my diet. Eventually the weight was just coming off like crazy, adding in resistant bands maybe a lil jog here and there. I lost an estimated 150-175lbs in one year, with no help but my self motivation. Here is me at about 250lbs.

                                Heh i was happy with 40lbs but f it, i kept it going. Since i was lookin good and feelin great, i started to get into the mode of "hey i went this far, lets see how far i can push", so i started a gym this is where my chronic cardio came in. So i went from one extreme of being huge to over working out myself to points of complete exhaustion. Which is fine if its every once in a while. I was at the gym 5-6 times a week going hard for at least 2hrs a day. Problem was my gym was the UFC gym over here and i hired a trainer, he taught me a lot about myself, mainly how hard i can push myself. It felt really great. Thing is i was with him only 2 days a week. I would train the other days by myself. To give u an understanding of what i did in one day of working out: 4miles @45min on the stairmaster, took a 5min break, did extreme HIIT session with kettlebells, burpees, heavybag throws (50lbs) and sprints, about 5min sets with 30secs rest, did that 4 times in a row. then to finish my day i ran 5miles doing starting at 6.5speed going up and down on speed to 11. Then i played golf since i work at a golf course and its free. Thats just one day! Well with all that cardio what else can i do to replenish my fuel, carbs central. My main source of carbs was of course wheat products, thing is i stayed at 191 pounds for 2 months stuck. No matter what i did even cut back on calories which was a bad idea, i used a calorie counter that u put on ur arm, it said i was burning close to 6k a day. This me at 191.

                                Let me say being VLF/HC is very difficult if not impossible to reach that amount. Anyway i know its getting long, so heres the main point, since going primal about 4 months ago ive gone down to 161 pounds with 10% BF, im 5'11". I recently got skin removal surgery for the massive weight loss in december, so my skin isnt 100% healed as u can see and im not ashamed to show it, im very happy with the results. And i love being primal, grain-free, specially wheat, sugar-free. And love eating red meat and bacon and of course coconut, woot!! Specially not having to do massive amounts of cardio to achieve this.

                                Thank you for reading my story i hope u enjoyed it. God bless and wish u guys the best of luck.
                                Awesome!!!! Very very inspirational!!! Thanks for sharing!
