    No, not 3 holes. 3 BELTS. The one I was wearing, my old belt that was too small, and I'm starting on a third, even smaller belt.

        I can't say anything about the actual size, but the narrowness of your waist makes them.... ummm... "pop" more (I'm sorry, but that's the only word for it).

          Still a ways to go, but in much better shape.

          how did you go about doing this? Did you bulk and cut or just eat primal?

          • I'm the FNG, and this would be my first post.... everybody say "hi noooob!". I spent some time looking through the thread and found a lot more motivation!

            I never cared or concerned myself with what I ate. "What the hell is a diet!" I happened to hear Mark giving an interveiw and went to check out MDA..... That was 8 weeks ago almost to the day.

            The first photo (my wife and I) was taken in 2008, but it's a fair representation of what I looked like 2 months ago. She's actually hiding my handles and lower belly fat. Walk around weight back then was probably 205 lbs to 210 lbs (my average for the last 7 or 8 years). 2 months ago, when I started PB, I was 220 lbs with more muscle in the chest than the old picture, but even more belly and handle fat.

            The second photo I just took (inspired by some of your success stories). Obviously I'm still a work in progress but my change has been dramatic. This isn't the first time i've looked similar to what I look like now, but that was over a year when I hit the gym 6 days a week, over trained, over sprained, carb and supplement loaded and still carried around over 210 lbs. This took 8 weeks, I weight 191 lbs, and I haven't felt this good in over a decade. In case anybody didn't catch that, I lost 29 lbs in 8 weeks!

            UPDATED: I keep finding new abs and veins I thought I'd lost long ago. I've leveled at 189 and appear to be adding lean mass as I'm still cutting body fat. This is right after I encorporated free weights.

              Cheapo has a thread in the fitness forum about a program he does called simplefit. I think he hits on nutrition there as well.

                  The picture on the left was taken January 22, 2012 weighing in at 198, the one on the right is from December 6, 2011 weighing in at 209.
                  My goal at the moment is to get down to 175 and see if a 6 pack shows at that weight, if not drop some more weight till it does. ;-)





                  Today February 19th , Weighing in at 192 with 17 pounds till goal weight.

                  You know where You are? You're in the jungle baby!!! You're gonna die!!!

                              I just eat primal.

                              I am now 42 years old and weigh 195 lbs.

                              I broke my ankle in the fall and have been less active as a result, but I have been back at SimpleFit since December.
