Starting the Day with Supplements

For many people, starting the day means taking an over-the-counter (OTC) multivitamin, or vitamins, and various other supplements. After all this, it’s time to go to the gym to get in a early workout session or some jogging time. Well, what should a person really be taking in the morning? First we have to see [...]

Supplementing with a Fat Burner

I have decided to implement a small change. I started taking a fat burner supplement. It’s supposed to be be an herbal formula that is designed for “optimal diet and energy.” I’m going to be the judge of that. I have a few bottles of fat burners and metabolism boosters to choose from, but I’m [...]

Why I Will Never Write Down What I Eat

Why won’t I write down what I eat? Simple: I want to live a normal life. I don’t want to be one of those folks that’s writing down every single thing they consume and writing down every single thing they do. No sir. I refuse to. It may work for some folks, but it won’t [...]

The Start of the 4 Big Holidays: A Dieter’s Nightmare

It’s the start of a period of holidays towards the end of the year that can be brutal on a person with a diet. It starts with all the darned candy and chocolates for Halloween.

Halloween Holiday Candy Crisis Prevention

As most of you already know, yesterday was Halloween in the U S of A. We went trick-or-treating and managed to collect a ton of candy and junk food. Of course my daughter wants to eat all of it, but this time around she wanted to share her candy binge with me. That’s were things [...]

The Liquid Vitamin Shop

When I first loaded Liquid Vitamin Shop, it wasn’t very difficult to see what it was that the company was selling. (Good Thing.) However, after that point, it all became incredibly cluttered. The website itself seems as if it was built in 1997 and hasn’t been updated since, except for the products. As far as [...]

Fast Food Is My Kryptonite

A few days ago I wrote about how I gave in to the temptation of eating fast food. In this case it was Domino’s Pizza. A few minutes after I ate it I began feeling weak and light headed. It was as if I was weakened by something in the food. And you know what? [...]

A Simple Carb-Cutoff for Weight Loss

WARNING: If you like articles that tell you what you want to hear – then this article is not for you! The hype around dieting today is all about carbs. South Beach, Atkins, and hundreds of other “weight loss miracles” that center their philosophy around carbohydrates, I think they all miss the bigger picture with [...]

What’s That Weird Taste In My Mouth?

Over the last few weeks I have been getting this weird taste in my mouth. I would normally just drink some water and then ignore it. That doesn’t work anymore. The taste is too intense now, and not in a good, rich chocolate cake sort of way. It will only subside after I eat, due [...]

I Fell Off But Got Back On Track

Last week I fell off the path for a couple of days, but I managed to get back on. I got a bit happy and cocky when I realized I had lost 20 lbs. So I decided to celebrate by eating some pasta, which isn’t that bad. But then I didnt workout on Wednesday and [...]

Yogurt: One of the Weapons in My Arsenal

I am not about to sit here and preach to you about the benefits of eating yogurt. Anyone could get on the net and do searches for what works for them. To be honest I don’t know all of the benefits that eating yogurt has, but I do know that it works for me. I [...]

My Weight Loss Goal Clothes

I have had a pair of black jeans size 40 for about 3 years. They are made by Pepe Jeans London. I love that brand. Never worn, ever. I also have a pair of shorts my wife bought me when I was in shape but never wore them either. Those are Pepe too. This is [...]

Tipping the Scales: 4 lbs. Lost this Week

It may not seem like a lot, but 4 pounds lost is pretty significant to me. Especially considering that it was lost during a 6 day period. I don’t really expect to lose too much weight too fast. Maybe about 10 to 15 lbs per month for the next few months. I think that is [...]

Sweaty, Sore, Hungry and a Bet

Let me start off by telling you about my bet. I was helping my bud pack up stuff for a move when he jokingly offered me his large size Dallas Cowboys jersey. I told him it wouldn’t fit me and he agreed. I then told him to give me a few months before it would [...]

Drink More Agua

I seriously mean it. Drink MORE water. It helps clean your system out. I tend to drink at least a gallon of water a day. Maybe more, I get really thirsty after intense workouts. I also get extremely hungry after an intense workout, but I will cover that some other time. If you look close [...]

Replace, Remove, Repeat

I was having a “comment conversation” with Jesse from Former Fat Guy and as we were discussing a post of mine I blurted the phrase “replace, remove, repeat.” It was in reference to starting out slow and then gradually, over time getting acclimated with the new changes you have made in your life. Many people [...]

I’m a Soy Milk and Green Tea Kinda Guy

Each day I make sure to have at least 1 gallon worth of green tea. Why so much? It’s an antioxidant and it helps me get my daily serving of water. I don’t drink anything but water and green tea. There is the occasional soy milk with my morning cereal, but that is about it. [...]

Interesting Conversation with my Cousin

I had a very interesting conversation with my cousin the other day. It centered around his wanting to get back into shape. He hadn’t been over my house for a few months and realized how I was living a healthier life: green tea and soy milk in the fridge, tuna in the cupboard, salads and [...]

Sinfully Spiced Plantains with Chocolate Sauce

Being that I am of Spanish decent, I love eating plantains (those banana looking things). Ever since I was a kid, my mother would cook some up with some salami or eggs and I would scarf them down. Ahhhh, the memory makes my mouth water. Anyway, I was at Wal-Mart the other day and came [...]

Controlling My Calorie Intake

The last couple of days have been pretty satisfying. I have managed to mentally suppress my appetite. As soon as I get up I make a protein shake and eat a bowl of raisin bran cereal with soy milk. Then I eat a yogurt, fruit and or a half a can of tuna for lunch. [...]

Day 1 All Over Again, 345 lbs with Videos

Yep, that’s right. I was on the right track for about a month, doing my workouts and eating the way I needed to eat. I was even mentally “there.” But that’s behind me now because today was the day I started all over again. I weighed myself today and was at 345 lbs. I told [...]

Finding It Hard to Exercise and Eat Healthy

Ever since getting back home from New York I have been finding it extremely hard to exercise and eat better. I told myself that when I got back home it would be back to my normal routine that I followed before heading off on vacation. Well, disappointingly I have not lifted one weight or eaten [...]

Steady Progress

It has been a while since I posted. Since my last post I have been hitting the weights and cardio on a consistent basis. Except for a couple of days last week when some “things” happened that required my undivided attention. But besides that I have been on a role. I have already made this [...]
