Sometime maybe around Feb of this year, I started one of these. It was longwinded and short at the same time. I did not continue it because I did not want to worry about being judged for skipping. I had not built up the trust in myself yet. 83 heavy compound filled sessions and 8.5 months later, I have faith in myself. Like never before. Finally 42 years old and by gosh, there is some self motivation living in me.
I've kept a detail log but just never posted.

This is not about that though. This is about the October Diet. The need to stop the BS and cut the fat. Since May 2011, I pretty much decided eating Full Fat, Meat, Eggs, and anything was justified to get stronger. While a good deal of that stuff is great, I had no filter or yield sign.

I do better if I limit the period. Rather than "I'm gonig to start eating better, now"... so arbitrary. Instead saying "In October 2011, I'm going eat everything with pupose and heavy scrutiny" My problem is not figuring out what good stuff to eat, but rather, leaving out the crap. I've known that. I also think its easier to start off slowly and making exchanges. But eventually, you got to break some eggs to make an omellte, or something like that.

So, first move for October is a forbidden food list. The basics, the "what, why are you still eating these things, fatty" But, hey, no time like October.

Forbiden Foods for October 2011
French Fries, All fried restaurant food
Buns, Sandwich bread, tortillas
Donut, Cake, Pie, Pastry, Biscuit, Muffin
French Toast, Pancake
Ok, maybe we can just say anything with "bread"
HFCS
Hydrogenated Oil
Processed Meat (lunch, weiners, bacon, sausage)
Sugar Drinks, Diet with artificial sweetener Drinks
Seed Oils: I dont use at home. Possibly will ingest if the broil/bake with them at Restaurant. (I'm tightning up, I'm not going insanely strict here)

Othe Rules
No food before 1 pm unles it's a morning training day
No food after 9:00 pm unless it's a late night training day
Minimum 6 hours rest
2 servings of Whey or Cassien per day to help meet protein needs
Continue the trend to replace fruit with even more vegetables
Cook large quantieis of meat on Sunday, for convenience during week
Keep frige full of variety of veggies and be mindful of variey of way to eat them
( broccoli steamed, + coconut oil + almonds. Ridiculos snack)

I'll drink less milk and take smaller portions of yogurt.

Weight lifting will be 2 heavy lifting and 1 or 2 lighter/cardio sesions a week

I'll keep the food journal here.
Weigh Sat Morning and measure around my belly.
Video, but just for me.

Maybe some of the good habits will continue


Thanks for support and a special shout to Stu for all his help.


I type porly and will probably not correct much in thsi thread.

Well done Clint. Keep it up, you'll be fine.

I'm pleased to see stuff like this: 10:00 PM ……. Nut cluster (Almonds + rice syrup + pecans), 15g
It shows you can have a treat once in a while without going crazy on it. Don't deprive yourself but keep the treats minimal.

Its clear I got looserv with the diet the last couple of weeks. One, for my bday and one because I thought I might be losing too fast, and strength was going down, it seemed more than I as comfortable with.

10/01/2011....288.8 lbs,...Gut...49.25"
10/17/2011....276.8 lbs,...Gut...47.50"
10/24/2011....272.8 lbs,...Gut...47.50" .. bday 10/25/11
10/26/2011....276.2 lbs,...Gut...47.50" .. wow, surprised me
10/31/2011....272.6 lbs,....Gut...47.25".... back on track

later back with thoughts. Right now I'll say this in no way was an all out "Starve to hit the good number" No doubt I could have hit 270, or even 20lbs lost had I pushed. But, this was about doing something that was reasonable and subtainable. I started this doubting my weight would budge much just be resticting some foods and wrting things down.

I broke almost all the rules, but most only once.
Fried food was hardest to give up probably. I"ll look forward to eating a bun occasionally too

Reasons later, but I’m not sure anyone cares. (poor me)

I arrived at this “solution”

Mon: Deadlift (531) / Planks, Back Squat – Volume (feet medium width)
Tue: Press (531) / BB Row, Tricep work
Wed: Carry Duffle Bag, Pull Ups (assisted)
Thu: Back Squat (531) (Power lifter-ish) / Dead Bug, RDL / Db Curls
Fri: Bench (531) / BB Delt Row, Db or Cable Lateral Raises

I wake up a 6:00. Eat breakfast and prepare lunch for work. I study for Actuarial credentials, while breaking every 30 min for 6 minutes of HIIT. Do that for about 2 hours. I am the worst at doing cardio after weight lifting.. so, trying this idea out. Weight training should take < 45 minutes. Shower, and off to work at 10:00.

I’m trying to solve a few problem:
Garage too hot at night
I need to be moving several times a week
Shorter sessions easier to stick with (waking up early is not my thing)
I have to start getting on with the Actuarial thing and morning makes good study time.
Late night workouts pretty much make a decent diet tough, especially when you eat like your going to train, and don’t. Morning sessions, well, you know what you did.
Man, I do love getting it all over with, once I get out of the bedroom and started.

Drawbacks: Weaker in morning. Getting up  hopefully that is a temporary problem. I’m actually quite alert early, just used to going to bed very late for years.


Been doing 531 for going on the 4th cycle. I'm not sure I get stronger, after setting back to start week one, now coming up to where I was before. I do enjoy the program though and am trending up, mostly.

do you have to train in the morning? I posted something like this in your other thread in the diet section, but why not try skipping breakfast, a little bit of fasted cardio (you could do complexes or whatever) then do your actuary stuff. You could even just skip breakfast AND the morning exercise and just study. Eat low carb at work, come home, train with weights for however long then have a nice big tasty carby dinner with your missus.

Might be something to consider. Carb backloading allows for your evening, post-training meals to be a bit "cheatier" if you see what I mean. Doesn't really work if you train in the morning though...

Buy a fan for the hot garage.

And as for your routine, you should add a pressing accessory to your upper body days. This might, in turn, make you want to add another little back exercise just to keep it balanced but that's not a big deal; just do rear delt flyes or something in between sets of arm work.
