Default **Breaking The Barrier**

After many years of diet and training, I decided to post my first journal on ABC. This website has educated me more than any college class or personal training course possible. June of 2002 I was 315lbs and extremely out of shape. College fast foods and bindge drinking was my downfall as I quickly put on weight.

Educating myself and setting goals allowed me to get in shape not only to lose the weight, but to also be healthier. I started dedicating myself to a set gym schedule with cardio 4-5days a week and lifting 4 days a week. I adapted a strict healthy diet as well with 6 meals a day with 500-600 calories each. Complex carbs in the morning (oats) and veggies in the afternoon were my carb sources. Whey, Grilled Chicken, Fish were my main protein sources. 1 Year later i droped over 100lbs and was at an even 200lbs. Since then I have learned to cycle my calories and choices of foods to achieve my desired goals and am presently maintaining a weight of 190lbs (same weight for the past 1 1/2 years)

I'd like to keep a journal for everyone to follow with me and encourage everyone to add advice and input. Thanks ABC and goodluck to everyone!

Thanks for the encouragement.. I'm still contemplating whether to Bulk, Cut, or just stay at my maintaining diet. I'm 6'1 and have been stuck at 192 for past year, Going up and down between the 190-195 range. I'd like to get more of a developed ab area and chest region as I'm finding those are the hardest final stages to cut up..

Another thing is I feel like I need to do is eat a cheat meal. I've eat cleanly EVERY meal for the past 3 years and I feel like my body's metabolism needs some sort of a refeed. It's hard to believe that I've basically consumed the same exact type of meals (Oats/Whey) (EggWhites/Oats)(Chicken/Veggies) (Fish/Veggies) (Chicken/Yam) (Cottage Cheese/Flax/AlmondButter) on point every 3 hours for the past 3 years, but its true.

Another thing i forgot to mention is that I drink 4-6 cups of Green Tea a day along with approx 180-200 oz of water. I found the green tea to provide me with a great mental boost and substantial immune system improvement as I have yet to get sick in years.

As for the Water, I dont know if there is such thing as drinking too much water, but Its become a habit to drink a poland spring 1 L bottle while at work as they are provided free in our cafe.

Hey Dave,

Just checkin' in. I was in your boat a few years ago, with drinking and eating habits in college. Congratulations on all your hard work, while you're making things happen others just talk about changing things for the better. Good work!

For those regarded as warriors, when engaged in combat the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God, or Buddha himself. This truth lies at the heart of the art of combat.

Yeah, I hear you Timmy.. College bindge drinking definitly was fun.. But I realized it was time for a change. I wanted a change in lifestyle and wanted to prove to myself and everyone else that I could do anything I set my mind to. Anyone can achieve their goals with determination. Have a positive outlook on life..look at the long-term future when times get tough and you feel like giving up or cheating.

Goodluck to anyone reading this.. You can do it.
