meal planSo, a few days ago, I posted a rough eating plan template.  I am still working on the Excel file that I can upload for all those interested.  Subscribe (up and to the right of your screen) if you want to be notified when it is available.

So, I officially started the new eating program and menu (pulled from the Abs Book) on Sunday.  I did a weigh-in prior to starting and I was at 188.8 pounds.  My personal goal is to get to 170ish, but I would be happy at 175.  Now, today is Wednesday, and I have already dropped to 186.6.  Certainly not a ton, but I weigh myself daily and at the same time – right before I shower in the a.m.  No clothes on to affect the weigh-in, so it is pretty accurate.  From Sunday to Monday, no change.  Each day after that I dropped a pound.  I will post more results on Sunday, reflecting a full week.  I am also shooting to post the excel file for anyone who wants it.
And now, a new motivation image to share!

6 Meal Per Day Eating Program

Well folks, it’s that time of year again.  Time to make those ill-fated New Years Resolutions!  Mine is re-starting the 6 meal per day eating program!  It’s awesome, and it works!

A few years ago, I bought the book ‘6 Minute Meals for 6 Pack Abs’ and read it straight thru.  It is not as much as a diet as it is as a lifestyle change.  In it, it covers all the ‘goods and bads’ of what you eat in life.  The premise is to not eat large meals, 3 times a day, but to eat smaller meals, 6 times a day.  The first time I tried it, I felt like I was eating ALL THE TIME, and I lost weight.  I dropped some 15 pounds in like 3 weeks.  I felt better than ever.  The best I had felt in a very long time.  I ended up getting the flu and that just messes up any normal eating habit.

I tried it a few other times over the years, but not with any real dedication.  Not until now.  I have myself to think about, as well as the wife…  She is also doing this, and that makes it much more important to stick with it.

So, to keep with the program better, I am developing an Excel file that tracks what we are going to be eating each week.  I did a quick one a few weeks ago, when we first started talking about doing this, and put it to use a few days ago.

 

As I said, I am working on this still and am making a few improvements. After I run with the improvements for a week, I will offer it as a free download. Stay tuned!
