    Fantastic results! Your arms are very sculpted and so are your calves. I had to look closely to realize you were wearing the same pair of shorts ---- the shorts in your 'after' pic look so different. Also, your pecs are more sculpted and make your neck look quite lean. Kudos to you. Sculpting your ideal body is very empowering! Congratulations!

    Nope, I just follow an eat when you're hungry protocol. I was hungry earlier in the day (late afternoon), but the damn pork belly took a few hours to make, so had to wait until it was ready. I have been meaning to look into Leangains though.

    15 July 12, PB Day 75

    Forgot to do my weigh in and measurements. Will do tomorrow morning when I get home from my overnight shift. One thing I have noticed is that I get hungrier earlier in the day if I have too many carbs (and not the good kind) the day before.... like last night.

    Exercise:
    Super sore in the arms and chest from the little bit of a workout that I did yesterday. May try to get out for some sprints at the gym on my break.... we shall see.
    1745 hrs: 45 minute walk to work (in 39 degree humid heat... ugh, at least my office is super cold!)

    Meal #1: 1300 hrs
    Grilled chicken thigh (with skin), boiled beets with tomato meat sauce, grilled onions and organic sour cream on top. Served with water.

    Meal #1.5: 1745 hrs
    Iced Oahu coffee with 18% cream. Devoured during my walk.

    Meal #2: 0030 hrs
    BAS - Mixed greens, cucumber, raw onions, feta cheese, chicken breast in marinade, 4 olives. Served with water.
