    I believe you Nigel, take the long view, make steady progress and before you know you will amaze yourself. Keep in mind that pullups sure get easier when you loose weight.

      I put a few pounds on over Christmas as I knew I would. I had been good since March and promised myself a blowout. I had ten days of drinking wine and eating more than I should have. I also ate christmas cake, christmas pudding, trifle and even had a beer. Coming back down to earth now and lost a pound in the last week.
      Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.

          • This is the best overviews of the Paleo approach to eating that I have ever read. I highly recommend it as a way to introduce and explain the Paleo diet.

            • Weighed myself this morning. Back to pre Christmas 183lbs after losing the 3 or 4 pounds put on during my Christmas/New Year binge. Now to try and get 168lbs for March 25th. It's just about doable on my version of Primal Lite, especially if I up the exercise a bit.

              I started doing proper press ups this morning which I'm pleased about as I have been doing them on the side of the bath for a couple of months.

                168 is my current weight. It took me about 4 months of 90% Paleo to loose 48 lbs and I have maintained that weight for the last 5 months. I predict you will be in the 170s over the next few weeks and will very likely reach your goal before March. Wishing you all the best in your journey!

                  • As many of you know body fat % not bodyweight is what's most important when assessing weight management issues. Measuring bodyfat has been frustrating as most of the scales that use bioelectric impedence are inaccurate and inconsistant. Most exercise physiologists agree that skinfold calipers give the most accurate and most reproducable results. Here is a video that shows how easy it is to do - if you any of you would like to purchase the calipers, just let me know.

                      Canuck, what is the cost of the calipers? And what is the accuracy of the device?
                      Thanks/Lu

                        Hi Louisa, the Skyndex calipers are a bit pricey ($450) but have been an industry standard for years and are very accurate. You can purchase them on their website -

                            • Beautiful sunny day in NorCal! Just finished a great set of Intervals at the high school track. There is nothing more invigorating than all out sprints on crisp clear morning - burns fat, drives up the HGH. Here are some benefits of one of my favorite forms of exercise -

                              Sprinting offers more than just calorie burning. Certain enzymes become abundant within the body each time sprinting occurs. These enzymes, along with normal cell functions, help the body store more calories and energy within the muscle tissue rather than the fat storages within the body. Through this process, the body steadily depletes all of its fat storages that normally account for weight gain.

                              Sprinting also increases the amount of impact training involved in a workout regimen. The high level of impact involved in sprinting increases bone strength and density. Impact exercises also aid the building of new muscle tissue around the bones and throughout the rest of the body.

                              Sprinting naturally increases the body's endurance strength, making longer cardio and muscle strengthening training sessions easier to complete. Through sprinting and speed training exercises, the body increases its ability to store oxygen, which helps the muscles function in all forms of exercise.

                              Another benefit directly related to sprinting involves the increase in mitochondria size. These cell parts store the energy consumed through food sources, then release the energy to the parts of the body that require and endure work or repair. In other words, working muscles receive more energy, because cells become better suited to store and release energy in an efficient manner, ultimately increasing growth.

                              • Another milestone. Weighed myself yesterday morning. 180 lbs so I have lost 60 lbs since March 7th last year. Still can't see my abs and believe I must have another 15-20 pounds of fat to get rid of. I expect it's going to be harder to lose weight now. I shall continue with the body and free weight exercises I have been doing, in the hope that if I bulk my shoulders it will stop the skin of my belly flolloping.

                                Just about managed one chin up and one full bodyweight dip this morning. Still nowhere near a pull up though but know it's just a matter of time.
