    Fuck yeah, yesterdayís intake was one scoop of whey protein in water (a whopping 110 calories). Scale & mirror rewarded me this morning. Iím currently holding at 191 pounds.

    Dropped my pumpkin off for her colonoscopy; I was going to hit it again this morning with a big super-fasted workout, but my body said it needs a breather till tomorrow.

    Ainít going into cheat mode diet wise, even for a day, despite my mind/body being aware it has its toughest 3 weeks coming up when my baby leaves for vacation.

    Feeling very blessed that Iím holding out & responding to this 7 week routine.

    My body appreciated the rest day yesterday and the fact that I ate clean & sparse. It awarded me with a gift. So to show my appreciation:

    AM
    3.5 mile walk for about 70 minutes (of course, fasted).

    Low cal, low carb lunch.

    PM
    3 giant sets: face pulls, biceps curls, resisted crunches (all 15x)
    3 SS of shrugs w/ hammer curls ((15x)
    3 giant sets: bent over flies, high curls, resisted crunches (15x)

    Week 4/7 in the books and Iím on pace. Blessed & thankful!

    Fasted 4 mile (70 minute) walk. Better pace (3.3 mph) because of less heat.

    4 oz fish with 3 tablespoons of mild salsa.

    Going to do just one workout today. Skimpy dinner planned, then things get more serious the next 3 days. Still holding around 190 & the body isnít consuming muscle for fuel; (at least per the mirror), but with whatís coming, Iím going to have to be extra watchful.

    Body & mind not up too a workout yesterday, so I let the diet do the work. I divided 500 calories into 3 tiny meals.

    AM

    Weighed in at 189.8 today and in order to pay my respects to the fat-loss godz, I did my end of the week fasted walk. 4 miles at about 75 minutes. Afterwards, I treated myself to a hard boiled egg to curb the hunger.

    Weird f’n day yesterday. Did some chores after the walk (and the egg, lol), but my body said food. I made myself an egg white scramble with one slice of cheese and if felt good. Then I often decompress my back after a “long” walk by lying down for 30 minutes. LOL, I was out cold for 90 minutes.

    Still I’m walking around like a zombie with my mind less than sharp, so I said no fast tonight for sure. Had a salad with some fresh sashimi & a roll with cucumber outside instead of rice. Not a terribly irresponsible meal.

    Awoke today & for the first time in about a week my bowels worked (sorry if that was too much info). Bottom line is I feel like myself & the scale/mirror are looking just fine.

    AM
    3 SS decline press (20) w/ press downs (12)
    3 SS incline press (15) w/ overhead ext. (12)
    3 SS of upright rows (12) w/ wood choppers (12)
    3 SS of flies (20) w/ kickbacks (12)
    3 SS of resisted crunches (12) w/lat raises (12)

    May fast today, let’s see what my body says after my PM workout.

    Yesterday was dedicated to sitting on my ass & watching NFL RedZone. I did fast till dinner, making it a 48 hour fast. Had a beautiful filet that was seared on the outside & cool and practically raw in the middle - PERFECT! Iím

    The last 2 days Iíve been around 188.6 & the mirror is keeping pace in my estimation. Bring on week 6/7 (although Iím contemplating extending this to 8 or possibly 10 weeks, going by what happens these next 2 weeks)!

    AM
    10 minutes bike
    3 SS of back (15 reps) w/ biceps (10 reps)

    Repeat 3x

    Off to the market, I have a hankering for fresh Ahi; fingers crossed.

    PM

    Killer Ahi tuna was scored!

    Bought a 30í exercise rope (15í per side) & gave it a whirl. If definitely can torque the heck out of your shoulders so I started very easily and briefly (3 x 90 seconds).

    My new approach to midsection is working fro the bottom-up, that is almost all lower abs. Now that too can be an issue as it can reek havoc on your lower back if done incorrectly or rushed. Started with 2 exercises. 2 x 10 only super careful.

    Did a wee bit of a walk, 1.5 mile x 30 minutes. Very glad that thus far Iíve used my wifeís vacation time wisely.

    Our fín cable company has dropped ESPN and ABC, so much for those games.

    The ESPN part I get, but ABC should be available over the air and thus available.

    I'm having filet leftovers from Friday when we had friends over and grilled. Dang, Costco has good meat, fish and poultry!

    Disney owns ABC and ESPN. The cable dispute was with Disney. Ironically though, they struck an agreement yesterday & all is ďnormal ď.

    I didnít want to ďrest on my laurelsĒ yesterday. So I kept my calories under 300. Tuna would have been a better choice in that there are fewer calories, less sodium & more protein, but the sardines taste far more interesting out of the can.

    Another change of aging is my taste buds and Iím getting a fondness for spice & heat. These are all low calories and low sodium & they will add ďzestĒ to anything.

    Weighed in at 185.6 this morning.

    3 Giant sets of 5 upper body exercises: chest, back, shoulders, triceps and biceps. Kept reps at 15 -> 12.

    Repeat this again with 5 different movements.

    Going to eat a bit more (but clean) today and tomorrow to ďnormalizeĒ. Iím quite sure the mirror has told me that this has not been lost from muscle, just fat (and water of course). Iím totally dumbfounded at where Iím at right now, above & beyond expectations. Blessed & thankful to the extreme.

    I've always loved hot sauces. I eat almost everything with hot sauce. Cholula is my favorite cause it's not too spicy, but has a ton of flavor. I don't know if you like Apples, but every time I want to lose weight I eat like 2-3 apples a day whenever I feel like snacking. It's been working great so far, but looks like you got it down. Good job man.

    The regular Cholila is pretty much my favorite. The lime Cholula is kind of "Meh" for my taste buds.

    The Carolina Reaper hot sauces are real popular in my area, but I just don't like eating foods that cause me pain.

    As far as fresh peppers for cooking, some jalapenos are a bit too much, but most Poblano peppers are just right.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Are you familiar with the "Texas Pete" hot sauce brand? They had it at every restaurant I went to in SC. It's not bad, pretty good on eggs, but I much prefer Cholula... a really good one that is thicker and full of spices is Gator Sauce, and if you like buffalo, Primal Kitchen Buffalo sauce is phenomenal. I could only find Gator online, but Primal was at Costco at one point. My local grocery store carries every version of Primal sauce except Buffalo, smh. Man all this talk of hot sauce while I'm on a diet making me wanna order a buffalo chicken pizza. mmmm.

    I never tried the lime version Cholula... I might get the small bottle and see how it is.

    Wango sorry for hijacking your thread with hot sauce talk lmao.

    Apologies, Wango. One more post and I'll ease back.

    Yes sir, TM, Texas Pete is on the table of just about every hot dog joint, mom and pop/ meat and 3 veg/ mainstream restaurant around here. There just something different about Cholula that I like.

    I love all food, I’m a morbidly obese person in a slightly obese persons body. I’ve had Thai a few times not as much as I should to be fair. Next time I do I’ll try that Tom kha soup.

I could only find Gator online, but Primal was at Costco at one point. My local grocery store carries every version of Primal sauce except Buffalo, smh. Man all this talk of hot sauce while I'm on a diet making me wanna order a buffalo chicken pizza. mmmm.

    I never tried the lime version Cholula... I might get the small bottle and see how it is.

    Wango sorry for hijacking your thread with hot sauce talk lmao.

    Thai fín rocks! You know youíre locked in & focused when you can diet hard, still talk food & stick with it. I also love watching cooking shows to test myself, lol. Thai might likely be one of the first things I turn to when this run is over soon.

    Drank like a fish with a buddy last night, but ate lean & clean (small salad & a little sashimi).

    Off day after 6 days on. NFL RedZone time!

    How long are you going to be fasting? 400 calories a day can't be good long term?

    It’s intermittent, lasting 1-3 days and I can pull it off for months. I’m sure it’s not optimal overall for the body, but it has worked great for me & I haven’t had any issues. Ain’t no way I could do it if I was working. I’m typically a little woozy and not %100 super-clear headed. I wouldn’t drive during rush hour like this; no way would I be perfectly focused. And surviving a school day with teens? Forget about it!

    Couldn’t sleep, got up early and walked just shy of
    3 miles in about 57 minutes. Playing the rest of the day by ear at this time.

    BTW, the ceviche was an f’n disaster, super pissed.

    Another 400 calorie day yesterday. AM scale at 183.4 Edit: error, 184.4. Happy with the mirror as the mid-section is getting cleaner & top 4 Ab muscles starting to emerge. Maintaining shoulders & arms “size” for sure, in fact the delts look wider.

    Bike x 12
    3 giant sets of lat Pulldowns, bicep curls (15 reps) and alternating knee to elbow crunches.

    Bike x 12
    3 giant sets of face pulls, reverse curls (15 reps) and lower body twists. Lie on back, spread arms, grab couch legs to stabilize torso. Flex hips to 90 degrees then rotate legs/pelvis left and right. Nice oblique and lower abs, they are toasty right now!

    Bike x 12
    3 SS of shrugs with high curls (15 reps).

    Likely at 700 calories today (egg whites lunch) and after dinner ( chicken w/ small salad).

    Might do a fast tomorrow.

    150 mg of TRT only. HGH is calling my name, but ain’t sure; although I loved the stuff for a couple of years.

    Shit, I would love even 150 mg right now. How is your strength? What weight did you start at? Seems like you’re on a roll. I think I’m losing weight too fast… they say 1 lb a week, but that’s too slow for me.

    At our age, I think hgh brings nothing but benefit.

    I weighed 191 this morning, but I had a large meal last night. You know, every time I say "I wanna cut" I end up bulking...

    Last year I started around 218, but was 225 prior. I dropped to 194-195 in 6 months last year. I returned to a more normalized diet/training regime for 8 months and to my amazement didnít get higher than 197-198. Hell, my TRT was inconsistent & there were plenty of weeks where I was lower than 100/wk.

    I started this 7 week attack at 195-196.

    Losing 1 - 1.5 pounds/week without sacrificing muscle clearly (fortunately) worked for me.

    150 mg/week is a higher TRT dose for me & I feel great. However Iím likely to return to 120/wk. soon.

    I loved HGH. Iím strongly thinking of starting up again & see how I respond when I return to my ďnormalizedĒ lifestyle. If I respond positively with HGH and 120 mg./week TRT, Iíll be thrilled. Because that means when I try to drop another 10 next year & shoot for single digit bf, the HGH will be a huge added weapon. I see my body/frame appropriately at a sinewy 175.
