    I just ate half a bacon, artichoke heart, and pesto pizza. But Conne is still a fatass!

    You need to be hard on yourself to progress. None of this will be fun, and it's likely you will fail.

    Yesterday I had:

    3 cans tuna, 1 can baked beans, 1 mini microwave pizza, 2 protein shakes - about 1,500 cals

    Exercise: deadlifts, rows, curls, weighted crunches

    You want a diet that's 40/40/20 split in terms of macro-nutritients. That means 40 % of your calories should come from healthy carb sources, 40% from proteins, and 20% from healthy fats. What's a healthy fat and healthy carb source? Something that isn't processed. You should know what that means by now. If not, just jump off a bridge.

    It should be a split of 40% protein / 40% fat / 20% carbs if he's trying to drop weight. The standard is a 40/30/30 mix of P/F/C. Unless he's getting a ton of physical activity, more carbs isn't going to help him. By all accounts, he gets the bulk of his exercise right now whacking it and twisting caps off of liquor bottles. I'd be going for a caloric and carb reduction.

    The density of the fats does him no good in his hunger management. And he needs the energy. A low carb diet is the perfect recipe to get him back to where he started after he inevitably fails.

    Carbs don't do anything for hunger management, either, especially if it's shit like white bread, bagels, etc. Get your carbs from lots of vegetables and some fruit. I've been doing this and haven't noticed any difference in energy levels or performance in the gym. If anything, I think my workouts have gotten more productive.

    Assuming he's eating unprocessed carbs like I told him to, they have a lower calorie density than all healthy fat sources.

    Lucky you. [​IMG]
    And if you're going to insist on drinking alcohol because you're an alcoholic, sticks to clear 80-proof liquors with diet mixers and stand while you drink if you're at a bar. You burn quite a few calories standing for an hour relative to sitting.
    I really don't drink as much as I used to. I haven't had a drop in over a week, may have some wine tonight, but I've been taking it easy. I hope that helps with the weight loss. Here's today's log, so far. 3/5/10 3 scrambled eggs w/pepper and a pinch of sea salt 1 cup black coffee 1 multi-grain toast w/unsalted peanut butter 2 humongous carrots 1 cup black coffee 1 apple Curried chicken salad, lettuce, tomato on rye bread Handful of potato chips 1 Kashi TLC cereal bar Half of a 1.2 oz. Lindt 70% cocoa chocolate bar

    Normally it's neglible, but in Conne's case he probably should.

    I will break your weak will by telling you what I eat and then calling you fat, like so:

    Tonight, I had breaded olives and herb cream cheese, apple wood rotisserie chicken, fava beans and greens, bread, some goat cheese, and a gin and tonic.

    Lard-ass!
