Love Handles Eviction Notice (Fitz's Journal)
Intro to Fitz - My Story (abridged)
18.5% Body Fat (90% of which is my belly and love handles)
I first found MDA after seeing Mark in a documentary - I think.
I started getting into fitness and nutrition in 2008. I have had a roller coaster of health since then, but not due to any factor other than my own brain.

Pics from my first journey - I actually stopped my fitness routine when I was laid off from work in Dec of 2010. That is when I began my decline.
Starting drinking more, eating crap. I was losing faith in everything - things were bad. I managed some ups but remained mostly down until Spring of 2013. That is when I first started listening to Podcasts from the Primal/Paleo community. It inspired me to get back to it. Thanks Abel James, Mark Sisson, Dave Asprey, Robb Wolf and Jimmy Moore.
I did some radical things and lost about 30 lbs. Started lifting again and maybe had a relapse of the bad stuff during the holidays.
So I started up again:
This is Monday, May 19, 2014.
18.5% body fat. (I used an acu-measure and did the 7 point skin fold test)
Now - I am trying the 30 day Steak and Eggs keto-ish diet (I added kale and sometimes mushrooms)
I lift 2x week - heavy back squats/ bench / over head press / reads (basically Stronglifts 5x5, which is a modified 'Starting Strength' program)
I sprint now, twice per week. I still do some jogging (or yogging with the soft J) but mostly intervals.
I also do this little 7 minute body weight workout that is on an iPhone app. It's a pretty good workout.
I will post my progress here. Body measurements weekly and photos too (sorry .
Once the 30 days is done. I will continue an 80-85% primal eating strategy.
I WANT MY LOVE HANDLES GONE. I HAVE HAD THEM SINCE I WAS 10 years old!!!!!!
