Since I already work out like a fiend, my son, fresh from his nutrition class at OU, has determined that if I "just watch my macros" I can have a 6 pack. Abs. On my 52 year old body. We'll see!
So, I'm starting at 182, aiming for 170 on my 5' 8" frame. I get to eat whatever I want as long as its:
227 g protein
90 g fat
123 net carbs
13 8 oz cups of water per day.
apparently, a key to this is not getting hungry. The water (unsweet tea here at work) is surprisingly effective so far at quenching my usual hunger pangs. So, that maybe 1/4 lb of meat at lunch wont be so tough? I'm thinking salad!
I'm exactly 1/3 of the way through Day One.
