So, I thought my washer or dryer was shrinking my clothes. I couldn’t button my work pants. Come to find out my stomach got big some how. I guess my metabolism finally changed after years of it being the same.
After 3 weeks of something similar to the FIGHT CLUB work-out AND eating 3-5x protein and vegetable meals a day, I’m back in my pants again. At my age it’s really 75% eating well and 25% working out. But, for me the working out is the fun part and I feel better in general.
I won’t admit that I do this work out exactly and all the time, but I do something pretty close. Mostly working with lighter weights very quickly. Going from one exercise to the next in rapid progression. It seems to be the best way to have fun and get things done that bring results.

Lunch: Two chicken breasts, 75-100g brown rice or pasta, and green veggies
Mid-Afternoon Snack [Pre-Workout]: A protein bar or whey protein shake and a banana
Post Workout: Whey protein shake and a banana

*I recommend eating the new Gluten Free Pro Bar BASE. It has 20 grams of protein and comes with Chia and Flax Seeds. The best part about it, my stomach doesnt make noises after eating it. Many bars on the market make my stomach kinda’ sick. This Bar is Awesome and tastes good in Cookie Dough Flavor.
