So today I embark on a bit of an odd mission.
I’m going to try and get my fasted weight down to 165 pounds.
Not permanently or anything…but rather to see if I can get into the 165 pound weight class at an upcoming push/pull meet.
(bench press and dead lift competition)
The original plan was to do a full meet, but I’m still having some slight issues with my squat…so for my first meet in a LONG time I’m going to play it safe.
Obviously, my fed weight won’t be 165…but I’m also going to do the meet fasted..so I just need a fasted weight of 165.
So..what’s the crazy new diet strategy I’m going to follow?
Eat Stop Eat. (Of course)
I maintain my weight at around 175-179 by fasting once every 5 days or so.
To get my fasted weight down to 165 (from around 173), I’m simply going to up my fasting to roughly once every 2-3 days.
That and I’ll make a bit of a conscious effort to cut back (but not cut out) the chocolate and treats.
That’s all it will take. Increased Fasting, but nothing extreme, and a slightly higher level of responsible, conscious eating.
And I’m sticking with the ‘Zen of Nutrition’ philosphy…keeping it as simple as possible and not letting myself get obsessive about the eating part of the plan.
Finally, as an update on the new workout: Everything has gone really well.
Starting in June I’ll explain the whole project, including a couple teleseminars to cover some really cool new research.
Until then it’s going to be a busy couple weeks of more writing, and some video shoots…
