    New to the forum..intro pics

    New to the forum. Thought I'd go ahead and get in the conversation. I've been messing with the primal diet off and on since about Oct/Nov 2011. I originally started with the "slow carb diet" and that somehow got me to primal. For the most part I've always been the skinny fat guy and the dent in my chest doesn't help with that.
    So far I haven't been great at keeping it going. I'll have 4-5 good days and then I'll have a bad day or two. In fact, I just came off a family weekend where I did not eat well. I have given up dairy aside from a little cream and/or milk in my coffee and whey protein and I rarely eat any grains any more (except I do have several beers per week still). I don't think I've had any pasta in about 2 months.

    My results so far have been mixed: I've gone from 181 at my highest to about 167 in 3-4 months. Only problem is I don't see much if any change in definition. My goals are to get to sub 8% bodyfat, boost my energy in sports, and add back the 6-10 inches in vertical I lost

    Here we go. This is me in 1998 at 23 yoa and about 145# and about 10% bodyfat

    Here's me on Nov 1, 2011 at 178-181 and 17% by calipers

    Here I on Feb 22, 2012 at about 167. Don't seem to have gained any definition which is concerning since I lost 12-14 pounds
    IMAG0133.jpg

    Here I am on 3-3-12 at 167 prior to my bad weekend of eating. I see more def, but it's hard to say as I'm flexing my abs a little and I am not in the same spot I took the earlier pics

    My suggestion, stop the beer. I had the same issue as you, would do great during the week then on the weekend I would drink a bunch which on top of being unhealthy, lead to bad food choices. It's tough but you can do it. You don't have to quit drinking forever. I actually had a few last night for the first time in weeks. But to be honest I feel like such crap today it wasn't worth it. When I cut the drinking (mostly was a beer drinker) and stuck to primal on the weekends as well I noticed a MASSIVE difference. Good luck

So I decided it was time to be brave and post some before and after pics. the first two (Im in the striped sweater) are pictures that scared the bejeezus out of me and made me get back on. The second two are this morning after two months of pretty strict primal, one month of regular yoga and almost two weeks of no drinking Still a ways to go but this is great progress i think. Note in the second pictures I am flexing my abs (not sucking in though lol)

    Gah! I'm tired of waiting for moderation approval to see all of these!

    Cave friends, for faster picture posting go to flickr.com or photobucket.com or a like website, upload pics there (copy the link) and post the links here using the little picture-y icon in the reply toolbar.
