That article you linked is pretty interesting. I don't want to do an all meat diet, ala Adkins, but that guy makes really compelling points about how cutting carbs is the key to weight loss and weight management.
Like Gordo, I enjoy hamburgers, I make great pizza, and I even like croutons on my salads.
I also like my current every 2 hour eating method. It definitely has affected my metabolism. Essentially, it's nothing more than grabbing a piece of fruit or anything with 100 or so calories every 2 hours to keep "the furnace burning."
I guess I just need to do some research on what food options would be best for me to cut down on carbs, but not completely eliminating them.
I'm also 99% sure that I'm going to start off in January with HIIT and probably the P90X ab workout. I love P90X and from all the research I've seen, of the workout fads/ideas/etc. that came out last year, the two that everyone (experts) agrees work are P90X and HIIT. The key being commitment.
I did 90 days of P90X this summer and it went well, but the weight loss/body defining is really slow. Probably because I didn't stick to their exact diet, do more than the minimum, have the proper weights I needed, and because I worked out every night at 10 p.m. I loved the P90X program, but 60 minutes a night, 6 nights a week is damn near impossible with three kids, a wife, a full time job, friends, poker/golf league, and other interests than just working out.
HIIT is 20 minutes maximum, 3 or 4 days a week. The only key to this working is that you have to be gassed when you're done. If you're not, then you're not doing it right.
I don't know. I've got a few weeks to figure out what diet and exercise plan is going to work best for me given my current situation.
How'd you like Tabata Thib?
