Diet Talk

Well, my body weight crept up quickly on me. I hit my lunk alarm of 290 pounds. It's amazing how quickly I can pack on weight. I was very consistent with my diet during the day with eating just protein and fats. It's in the evenings when I was grazing more than I should.


Following backloading, you can be more liberal in the evening after you train. I clearly was too liberal. Part of it is eating out more than I should. You just can't control those calories. In addition, during my non-backloading nights, I was taking in more carbs than I should. I throw in some pretzels here and there. Maybe a pudding cup. These aren't terrible snacks, but they add up and defeat the purpose of backloading.

So, I started thinking about making big changes in my diet or switching up programs completely. Then, I thought "How about just following the diet you're on?" With that, I made a promise to not go off my diet for a week and see what happens.


The first day I tried getting it back together, Ermal from the radio station, brings in pizza. Rhodes and I complained forever about how we do the show for free and the least the guy could do is bring us a pizza. Sure enough, he brings it on a day I promise to stay on my diet. After much taunting from Rhodes, I still held out.

I will report back next week with my results.
