I’m moving on up, to the east side…

Hey everyone, I finally went ahead and registered a domain name for NMFD. So, I’m in the process of setting up the new site and hope to have everything moved by the end of this weekend.

I’m excited because the new site will give me a lot more control and freedom to do things with NMFD, like discussion boards and polls, etc.

OK, I’ve got the new site up. It’s pretty much done, but I may tweak things over the next few weeks.

So, please change any links to http://www.nomorefatdad.com and then head on over and take a look.

Thanks!

How to lose your man boobs

Here is a great article from Craig (creator of the Men’s Health Belly Off! 2008 program and the Turbulence Training program I just started) about losing your man boobs, or moobies as I like to call mine. I can say, and you can see, that the training Craig recommend really works. Over the last 7 1/2 weeks, my chest has shrunk a few inches and I no longer look like I need a manzier. This is no magic remedy, there are no pills you can take, it will require work and change on your part. But if you are fed up with your moobies like I was, you’ll need to put in some effort. Don’t let anyone tell you differently, they’re just kidding themselves and you.

(in my best Jim Morrison voice)…This is the end

OK, not quite the end and not really an end at all but a new beginning. In just 9 days I’ll complete the Men’s Health Belly Off! 2008 program. I’ve loved every minute of it and feel great with how my body is developing. The concept of quick, high intensity workouts really fits my lifestyle while being super effective. With the end coming up so quick, it was time to look for a new program to work on. So last night, I went ahead and purchased the Turbulence Training package from Craig Ballantyne.

Can it get any more confusing?

My wife made a box of Rice-a-Roni Nature’s Way Parmesan & Romano Cheese Rice for a side dish tonight. Being the good health nut that I’m becoming, I checked out the nutrition facts to figure out the calories, fat, carbs, etc and what a serving was. Well, here is the nutrition facts label for the box…

Rice-a-Roni Parm & Rom Nutrition Facts

Can someone please read over that and tell me exactly how much a PREPARED serving of this stuff would be? I think it’s supposed to be 1 cup prepared for a serving, but I’m not quite sure.

Why can’t they make it clear? Are they trying to make making healthy choices more difficult?

Body composition calculators

Well, I was going to create my own scripts that would help you calculate your BMR and then help you figure out how many calories you needed for a day, but I found a really good site that does all this already. I’ve taken the formulas and put them into a spreadsheet that I use to keep track of my weight each week. Now I can see my weight loss, but also my body fat % and lean body mass changes.

I can eat more!!!

In just one day of using FitDay to track my calories, I’ve discovered I’m not taking in close to enough calories in a day. Using a formula I used from Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle, I determined my daily calorie requirements (for my age, height, weight and activity level) should be somewhere in the neighborhood of 2400 calories. On Monday, I took in only ~1700 and that’s not taking into account my interval training. So I’d say my calorie total for yesterday was closer to 1400 and that is WAY too low.

Weekly Review – Week 6

Here we are, at the end of Week 6 with just two more weeks to go. The Belly Off! program has been great and I’m very happy with my results. Not only physical, but the mental results as well. Even when I had a seemingly rough week this week, I’m still motivated to keep moving forward and am not really discouraged at all. I really believe that I now posses the tools needed to continue living a healthy lifestyle.
