“Clean Eating”

Height: 5' -8"
Weight: 168 lbs

OK, “Clean Eating” is nebulous. How I implemented it was to eat moderate fat/moderate protein, and eat carbs to satiation, choosing low glycemic carbs, such as lentils and bean, and low GI fruits such as apples and tomatoes. At about this time, I implemented a high rep weight workout, to work around the pain I felt in the AC joint of my shoulder, whenever I benched heavy weights.

Here I am, at the start of the experiment, in December 2013.

As you can see, not horrible, but Calvin Klein was not about to knock down my door, asking me to model their underwear.

As a result of me watching my diet and implementing the higher volume workout, I lost nine pounds. I didn’t have the six-pack abs, but I did lose quite a bit of fat. Here I am in April, 2013.

I was happy to lose the weight, but I was not making progress in the gym. I felt like I lost some muscle in the process. I thought, what the heck! I’m NOT going to pack on a lot of muscle this late in life. I just want to get lean. That’s when I tried the ole’ Warrior Diet again.
