Crazy Comparison

Last month I was doing an amazing job on keto.

I lowered my weekly average of carbohydrates from the first month.
I raised fat up to where my protein level was and eventually surpassed it

It was a great time and I could tell it was working for me.

Little did I know what was going to happen in month 3.

Month 3

For month 3, I decided to trust fat more.

I did that by
  • keeping carbohydrates around 20.
  • Limiting protein to around 70g.
  • And relying on fat to get me through the rest.

I soon realized I was going to need to supplement fat so I decided to do this with Bullet Proofing Coffee and Tea

In the beginning, it was a rocky start. I wasn't so sure I could pull this off. My first Bullet Proofing ended up a failure. I wrote about it here.

But I didn't give up

As a result, I now have two recipes

I also have some interesting pictures to share. 


This is month 2

Notice the calorie restriction?

This is month 3

Note the uptick in calories? 

I'm consuming a ton more calories now then I did in month 1 or 2. 

Interestingly enough. My weight is plummeting! My goal in month 3 wasn't to lose weight. 

I'm also stronger. I was able to blow through several personal records this week alone. 

I was over 300 lbs 2 years ago! This is crazy!

I'm sold with riding this wave all month long. 

Looking forward to month 4!

True8 March

Recently I had the honor of joining Josiah Novak's True8 March. I want to share my experiences. But first, Let's back up. There's a super hero origin story in the works which puts the rest into perspective.
100 pounds ago (heavier), I was looking for ways to get my health under control. By chance, I'm came across The Model Health Show by Shawn Stevenson. It changed my life in many ways. Along the journey I was introduced to Larry Hagner. He runs the The Good Dad Project podcast. Another aspect in my life which needed work was my parenting skills. I started following Larry and joined his Dad's Edge group.
It was in that group I discovered Josiah Novak. 
Josiah Now Josiah's words resonated with me. Over the past year, I developed a relationship with health. I could tell he shared many of the same values I discovered. It was inspiring, because I could see myself in him in about a year. Father, friend of the community, passionate about health, fitness, life. We sy…

Stairs 2017

In the beginning of 2016, I had the crazy idea to get into shape.  So, since I didn't have any free time nor a place to spend the nonexistent time... I decided walking the stairs was a great idea. Coworkers were doing it, it'll be fun. We'll get to walk and talk, and bond. Maybe I could even make a friend or two! Until I realized I could climb 3 floors without wanting to fall over and pant for air. I was that out of shape.  I was so embarrassed. An Army Veteran, couldn't even scale 3 floors without needing a rest. 
In this post last year I get more into detail about the experience and how I overcame it. I want to say it was quick and easy but it took a lot of work.  But... the work was worth it because now I can do crazy cool things in the same stair well. 
I want to share one with you. 

Dogmatic Diets

Try not to get too dogmatic with your diet. Like snowflakes, we are all similar but unique. Your best bet is to journal your way and listen to what your body tells you.
20 grams of carbs is just a starting point. Protein in grams to lean mass weight is just a starting weight.
Start there, then experiment. Get interested. Be a case study of 1. Learn to ask a lot of questions. Take all the answers with a grain of salt. Pink Himalayan Salt. Take everything with salt. You need the electrolytes.

And... of course, above all else, don’t forget to… 
Keep Calm and Keto On.
