Drop the lbs. You can do it.

 

Limit your simple carbs, esp. bread and start sprinting. 30 second sprint- 60 seconds rest. do that 4-8 times twice a week and you will melt the fat off. Throw in some chin ups here and there as well.

 

You get an "afterburn" after sprinting that keeps burning fat.

 

My public message for the day.

I'm turning 40 in October and listening intently...as are my love handles.

HA!

 

I care about my Epaulet brethren.

 

Check out marksdailyapple.com.

 

Great site for nutritional and exercise guidance. Most folks with great intentions could do better than what they are eating now.

 

Here's a link to high intensity sprinting:

Good luck and I love Rick Moranis.

"40 is the old age of youth" -- being almost a year into it, couldn't agree more.

 

Mike/All - another care question - for the Epaulet by Gitman Linen shirts, and the recent EFF/New England -- are the linen shirts pre-washed?  They are both on the verge of being too fitted on me, so concerned about shrinkage.... was gonna go cold wash/hang dry, but may dry clean.... any guidance would be much appreciated!

Ha 2 years out from 40 here.

Regarding weight loss/gain it is nothing but a simple formula that requires some consistency, tracking your intake and patience.

And don't fear carbs!!! smile.gif

Dry clean the linen was Mike's advice.

No offense of course, but you are CUT!

 

If the majority of ones calories come from bread and simple carbs, you ain't gonna lose your love handles. Your body will remain on a carb burning cycle. What's needed is to be on a fat burning cycle.

 

Ease into more healthy fats and quality sourced protein. Veggies and complex carbs are fine.

Sorry Mike! Rant over! :D

I'll spare our fellow EP thread friends a lengthy response but will just quickly reply to say that ultimately it's cals in vs cals out that will determine ones body composition. The ratio of carbs to fat to protein is secondary. You can get fat eating chicken and veggies and you can get competition stage ready with a healthy intake of carbs.

Real simply once you know your TDEE then you can set caloric intake for your goals- eg slight deficit, slight surplus or whatever. Protein will typically be set around 1 gram per pound body weight, fats around 25-40% of total caloric intake, and carbs for the rest. As you adjust during a weight loss or weight gain phase you have most room to adjust carbs, and fat depending where you choose to set it. Protein largely remains constant although during a prolonged deficit you'd likely want to increase slightly.

Ok sorry I'll stop... smile.gif

Heres a link back to my post when I received my sport coat. There's a few low quality photos, no action shots. I haven't worn any coats in awhile.

I will promise you that you'll be psyched when you take it out of the box and see/feel the fabric.

I debated that one for so long and regret passing on it...as it usually goes around here. Congrats on getting it though!

Wow awesome! Do you have any pics in the same pants before for comparison? Just wondering how much slimmer they turn out.

Unfortunately I don't, but honestly they don't feel much slimmer at all in the thigh.  For comparison, my J.Crew Stanton 9" inseam shorts measure at 10" across the leg opening, and these Shrivets measure 9.5" across

Thanks a lot. I'll have to dig through some pairs to see if I can give this a go. I guess Walts would make up nicely too.

Respectfully again, I don't agree with anything here. Most here are eating for long term health, not competition.

 

I hope folks do their own research...... And stay away from store bought chicken!

 

Mark at marksdailyapple.com backs up everything with scientific facts not conjecture.

 

Peace.
