This is not a normal amount of weight loss but simply happened because I started to cut out the extra that I have enjoyed during my bulk stage. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS OF MY BULKING STAGE.
My preferred weight range is between 230 and 240 for my build and my appearance. NOT so much concerned with what scale reads and I definitely do not believe I would be healthier at 189 which is my "ideal" weight.
Lean and green is the plan. Lean meat such as bison, grilled chicken and NON Fried Fish ( I used to hate fish but now I crave it) and pork. Yes pork is lean. I'm not eating Fatback here. A pork roast, a lean pork chop. NO BEEF- NO BEEF- NO BEEF
The green is essentially any green, red or yellow vegetable. COLOR is the key- white veggies are essentially not allowed- sorry potatoes, I'll not be seeing you. Sweet potatoes are allowed. Bread, sweets and Ice Cream (sniffle)- good bye my friends good bye. Oh how I love you and oh how you make me FATTTTTT.
Buttah (that's butter to you non southerners) is limited and so is full fat cheese.
One cheat meal each week. NOT a cheat day and I am not going to have a Burger with cheese and an ice cream shake and french fries in the same cheat meal.
There will be no FRENCH FRIES on any cheat meals until labor day.
Workouts- I am cutting down my number of sets. 4 to 6 days a week with more toning exercises included.
Cardio- is becoming a separate daily exercise. Every morning and every night 30 minutes of cardio- Walking or elliptical training. Swimming laps. Have I mentioned how much I hate cardio?
Flexibility- Yoga classes once a week. I'm getting old my joins need the practice.
