My success so far has been fairly decent I think.
From August - December I went from 210 lbs and 23-24% BF to a low of 187 and 14-15% BF. My memory has improved, I have energy when I wake up, I am no longer foggy brained, even my eyesight has improved.
So now for the future I plan on gaining lean mass.
I hope to gain about 20lbs of lean mass before July.
Why? The challenge. I am not getting any younger that is for sure and I am not even sure this will be possible. But this is another of my goals I have st for myself this year to be the best me I can be.
Everyday I will be IFing. I will break my fast between 2-3PM everyday and then eat the balance when I get home all before 10PM. Simply a 16h fast and 8h feeding window.
I will keep carbs about 100-150, protein around 180g (1g/lb LBM), and fat will make up the balance which will range from 95-225g depending on progress.
Food will be as primal as I can manage. I will probably have a little more dairy than most would consider primal as well as some rice now and again. This is more for convenience than anything else. I tolerate both carbs and dairy well. There will be many tweaks I am sure.
Lift Heavy Things:
I plan on weight training with the Big 5 movements using the Myo-Rep method. I have trained to failure many times throughout the years and I feel that the Myo-Rep style, having done it for a few weeks now, causes the same muscle fatigue but not the same CNS fatigue.
I plan on joining an indoor ultimate team to get some sprint like workouts. (indoor since there is already more than a foot of snow on the ground. I suppose I could sprint outside but I don't want to break my neck)
I am going to update every week at the very least and perhaps get more detailed with workouts and diet. Maybe even some pics.
