    Great work Nickoli1, you've done really well to lose all that weight, I can't wait to see how you tone up now you're fine-tuning. You're gonna look even better!

    Thanks, Jason!

    That's not an easy question to answer.

    I wasn't particularly comfortable with taking my shirt off in public in my before state, so I had a really tough time finding a picture. The one I did find was from a Christmas vacation to Playa Del Carmen in 2006. I turned 40 in 2008 and that's when I decided that at that juncture I could either go completely to seed or do something about the state of affairs. However, between when that picture was taken and my 40th, it was pretty much business as usual, the physique pretty much went unchanged.

    My initial try at "doing something about it" involved intermittent fasting 2 days out of every week. I was eating anything I wanted ( and I would religiously break my fast with a big plate of meat, salad, rice and pita bread ) and still losing weight. At the beginning of this year, however, I decided that I needed to fine tune things, so I cut out the refined carbohydrates, and then the fat melted off. I got sick somewhere in March with a stomach bug, couldn't eat for a couple of days, and woke up with abs!

    So, to make a long story short(er), it took me about 15 months to lose the weight, but I was meandering. I cannot say how much faster it would have gone without the refined carbs, but my gut here ( former gut? ) says maybe 3 - 4 months? However, I'm just speculating.

    Love it, so true. I'm learning that the abs & biceps I built years ago, then covered over with flab, are still under there. As soon as I dropped the grains, the fat started melting off and I saw them (and I can still lift as much as I could then), even without me eating less or starting up exercise again. Amazing.

    Absolutely, 100% agreed. We all have pretty amazing physiques under a muffling layer of fat.

    I'd say that's got to be right, considering the amount I actually work out, especially my abs. Crunch? What's a crunch?

    That whole "abs are made in the kitchen" thing - I used to think that was just kind of a "line" used to make people eat better, I had no idea it's actually 100% true.
