    Come with me, we'll go and see The Big Rock Candy Mountains.

    Starting a journal, chronicling my journey to the ultimate sugar burning champ of all time! (sorry derp, im looking to take the title)

    Goals are to go from around 18% bf or less (dont really know) to at least 10% or under, while gaining a good amount of muscle. Starting weight was 192lbs (about a week and a half ago), sitting at 189 right now. There is a pic in my profile of current starts bf%.

    Im going to do this using an extremely high sugar diet with very little to no fat on most days. Probably there will be a few high fat meals thrown in for good measure. I will also be working out 6-7 days a week. I will try and post a food and also exercise log here.

    I also made this to answer any questions i get in PM's or if anyone wants to discuss what i am doing. Also to shoot the shit with a few peeps on here so their journals dont get filled with random crap. :P

    Wow, you outdid me on the name!

    Puts "Dear Zach" to shame...

    Come join the agony aunt,

    On his sugar rant.


    I like rhymes
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Dear Zach,

    Can you explain the phenomena of cortisol spikes to me? You mention them frequently, but I can't find info online.

    Your number one fan,

I love it on pizza. And I take maple syrup and put a little bit in my hair when I've had a rough week. What do you think holds it up, slick?"

    Hey dude / Dear Zach,

    I read the article - very interesting stuff!

    In my experience, losing fat has been highly detrimental to health and metabolism without exception, and my primary strength has been helping people recover from losing fat, so its an interesting point of view. It would be funny if the increasing body fat that Americans see with advancing age was really a great protector against the Standard American Diet. Ive argued all along that the human body is not stupid, and does the best it can with the tools it is presented with.
    I've read that fat acts in a hormonal capacity - is this what he's referring to?

    Also, it still didn't explain "cortisol spikes": how do you know that getting up at night needing to pee is a symptom of one?

    Sincerely yours,
