I will eat a piece of fruit or drink a cold pressed juice. Coffee is mandatory. Afternoon snack limited to a handful of Almonds or something equivalent. Cutting the wine and beer has probably helped most.

That sounds pretty awful as far an existence goes. No wonder she's pissed. Hell I would be too if I couldn't really leave the house to even do anything.


Guessing you live in the burbs. Can she walk/cab to the train? The city's probably got a lot of spots she could explore on her own as well.

I just started the 8-12 semi-fast this week, so most of what I have to report is loss of water weight I would suspect (3.5lbs). But, I can feel my body adapting to not "wanting" a snack in between meals.  I'll report back after a month. 

 

Reducing beer and wine started a month or so ago.  Also resulted in a couple pounds.  More importantly, my body doesn't feel sluggish the day after having a couple tequila cocktails.

My daily regimen is generally a greek yogurt for breakfast, a coffee for lunch, and then a regular dinner and I do my best to limit myself to light or no snacking afterwards.

Moving on. I posted this in the Spier and Mackay thread but I was wondering what your opinions are, someone said there was a debate about if spread collars look good without a tie but I didn't see it in this thread.

Here is my Spier and Mackay custom collar.




Here is my Spier and Mackay standard wide spread.





I'm pretty slim at 5'10 and 150lbs. Does the custom collar suit my slim profile (neck) or does it make me look smaller? How do you guys feel about wearing a spread collar without a tie? Which collar looks better?

For how long have you been doing this and what are the general results?

That sounds awful.

I like both of the collars, 7Rocket.

This type of diet is recently popular in many exercise and bodybuilding circles.

I like both collars as well, but prefer the standard. Could be due to the different photo angles.

I prefer the standard collar as well. Those shirts look pretty damn good in those pics. How are they sans jacket?

How do you think the standard wide spread looks without a tie and no jacket?

Jacket is not from Spier, it's from a now out of business brand. I'm very happy with SPier and Mackay and urge anyone to give them a shot. It's great to have a luxire type company that is local to me.

Going forward I think I'll just stick with a wide spread
