Re: The Chronicles of Brady

Squat
3x5 @ 185 (weak)

Deadlift
Worked up to 295x3

On my weight battle, I have decided that I can't be trusted to eat Paleo without a leash. I end up eating 2lbs of meat for lunch. That's not doing me any favors.

I've decided to do Paleo on Weight Watchers. My wife, mom, and mother-in-law have all been back on WW for a bit. I've been studying the way the points are calculated now versus when I was on it in high school. Seems much more sensible. I get more food, and when I eat paleo, I get plenty. They reward you for eating protein (by allowing you to eat more) and knock you for eating carbs and fat. No calories are counted. Fruit and non-starchy veggies are free. This is a lot like Cordain Paleo, and I think I can handle it. I'm on my first day and am able to eat quite a bit.

I don't plan to count my food forever, but being back at 245 is doing horrible things to my self esteem. Time to get back to a lean 200-210.

245 is tough on the old self-esteem? Oh, come on, Brady - you should try 317!

Seriously though, congratulations on undertaking a WW Paleo program. This is a very intriguing idea, one that I have not heard of before. However, I do like the WW points system. It is way of tracking food intake without counting calories. It brings some discipline to portions and meals. I think a Paleo version of WW should work very well indeed.

The key to this entire undertaking is to remember that you are creating new habits for life. This isn't something that you just do for a while, and then stop. To get the fat off and keep it off permanently, you have to change your lifestyle permanently. This is not easy to do, but with serious commitment up front, it can be accomplished. For those of us who tend towards obesity when exposed to the Standard American Diet, it is the only way to get lean and stay lean.

Anyway, best of luck. I'll keep an eye on your Chronicles and drop by from time to time to offer encouragement, support, advice, etc.

Re: The Chronicles of Brady

Lol. Thanks for the encouragement, Luke. I started at around 280 when I was 18-19. I actually got down to about 225 on Weight Watchers back then (circa 1999-2000). I definitely didn't eat smart back then. My workouts had no planning, either. I would go to the Rec at college and just do whatever. No record keeping. I was about 215 when I got married in 2005. 2 years later after quite some time on the Men's Health Abs Diet and a lot of running, I was down to 185 for my 2nd anniversary. 5 years later, I'm up 60lbs from that, and it was yo-yo the entire way.

I'm really excited about being able to work Paleo into the points. Yesterday was day 1 and it went well. Aside from some cheese and one Sugar Free Red Bull, I was pretty much dead-on with Paleo. I'll definitely cut the Red Bull back out soon, just can't deal with the food change and the headache of no caffeine at the same time. I'd love to cut the dairy back out, too.

And so you're aware, I try to keep up with your log. I think you're doing an amazing job!

Ah, yes - the way of the yo-yo. A fairly common experience. Been there, done that myself.

Serious obesity confers one great advantage - it removes delusions. Unlike those who only need to lose 20 or 30 pounds, we the severely obese can't kid ourselves. We know we can't say, "Oh, I'll just go on a diet for a while, and then everything will be OK." We know that we have to make permanent lifestyle changes. The greater the problem, the greater the clarity in seeing its solution, and the greater the resolution.

If you need caffeine, than I would recommend consuming it, especially at the beginning of your Paleo diet. There is a transition phase at the beginning of Paleo diets, as your body adjusts to it. Most people say it lasts three or four days. For me, it was around nine days. I suffered from a bit of insomnia from the high protein intake. Anyway, do what you need to ease your transition phase.

Over time, I have found it easier and better to stick with pure Paleo. After seven months on a fairly strict Paleo diet, I ate a lot of wheat based carbs over Thanksgiving. I felt like crap for days afterwards. Much to my surprise, I found that I am gluten sensitive, but only after having been off of the stuff for many months. I also find that I don't handle dairy as well as I thought. The reaction isn't as severe as gluten, but it is real. But I only noticed this after having consumed a clean Paleo diet for many months. It is amazing what you learn about your body after following a strict Paleo diet for a while.

Thanks, Brady, I appreciate the compliment. Yeah, I have made a fair amount of progress, but have a ways to go yet. I seem to have crossed over a rough patch, and I hope to accelerate my fat loss over the next month.

Looks like a super fun WOD. I'll have to try that one some day.

Re: The Chronicles of Brady

Weight - 241.8

Warmup with emphasis on pullups.

Short WOD:

10 min. Every 30 seconds:
1 Power Clean - 115
1 Hang Power Clean - 115
1 Push Jerk - 115

Was supposed to be 225. No way. Not at this point in my training. At one time, I think I could power clean about 185. I should have gone a bit heavier today, but grip would have been the problem. I hope to do some bench with Nik today at 3:00.

Diet is good today.
