Your one-year pictures, especially, are remarkable. What initially caused you to decide to make a change in your life? The first thing I did was reach out to a buddy of mine from college who was a trainer for the Kansas City Royals baseball team. He gave me some initial guidance when it came to nutrition, but the main thing he did was provide support and hold me accountable.
He would text me everyday to see how my diet was going and give me advice. When you decided you needed to make a change, you chose heavy barbell lifting as the means to accomplish that. What made you decide to go this path?
Did you try other methods? If so, how did they work for you compared with heavy barbell lifting? I had zero weightlifting experience before last year and most of my workouts in the past had consisted of running and bodyweight exercises.
So when I hired this trainer and we sat down to talk about my goal, I told him I wanted to lose weight and do Crossfit. At first, we did all kinds of exercises just to get me moving and to build some base strength, while learning good technique for those main lifts.
At that time everyday was different, sometimes I would be doing tire flips and pushing sleds, other times would be Olympic lifts, and others would be pushing my limits with the major lifts. At that point I dropped Crossfit idea, stopped Olympic lifting for the most part, and started lifting heavy on the main lifts.
Both my weight loss and lifting progress started to increase pretty rapidly after I made this change. I still train the Olympic lifts occasionally, but it is more for fun and for a change of pace than anything. My wife is convinced now too. She started lifting with me and has been amazed at the changes she is seeing.
How important has your diet been in this process? Can you relate to us any alterations or difficulties you had this past year with your diet?
Diet is THE most important part of the process. Tracking macros is flexible because you can pretty much eat whatever you want as long as you hit your Protein, Carb, and Fat numbers. Learning that a carb is a carb was a big part of my success. Eating a huge lunch and dinner while dieting was so much more satisfying than eating three smaller meals.
On top of that, I noticed that my energy levels were way up once I started practicing IF. The key is to focus on one day at a time. If you hit your macros 6 days out of the week you will probably get the results you are looking for.
The other challenge with consistency was not letting family and visitors derail your weekend. My worst days were always when we had visitors, because there are a lot more temptations in the form of restaurants, snacks, and desserts. I mean honestly, think about how hard it is to turn down that apple pie that your Grandma made from scratch because she knew it was your favorite.
What types of foods are staples at your house? Has this new lifestyle affected your social life? If so, in what ways? A normal meal at my house is some sort of grilled meat and veggies for dinner most nights and some form of leftovers for lunch most days. My wife and I used to never eat eggs, but now we eat eggs mixed with just about anything that is in the fridge daily.
Broccoli and green beans are our go to veggies and salsa is a great low calorie item that any good Texan can add to a meal to give it some spice. Luckily, Chipotle has a great nutrition calculator on their website that I can use to plan a burrito that fits neatly into my planned macros and satisfies that craving.
If my sweet tooth ever gets really bad, I tend to reach for some fat free vanilla Greek yogurt which is easy to fit in my macros and usually does the trick.
I used to be a big beer drinker, but I cut it out of my diet when I first started and my tastes have just changed over time. My go to drink when tailgating at an Aggie football game nowadays is whiskey and Diet Coke. Lastly, what would you say to someone who is in the same position as you were last year?
Any advice for someone just starting out? If you are afraid that by making time to workout and cook good meals you will have to sacrifice time with your loved ones, then invite them to join you. Cooking a meal with your spouse or children is better quality time then sitting in front of the TV and working out with spouse can be a lot of fun. Reach out to people that have had success, I guarantee they will go out of their way to help you. The internet makes it easy to learn everything you need to do to make these changes in your life.
Above all have fun with it and get better everyday. Whether it is another 5 lbs. Marketing Campaign Case Studies. For God, Country, and Coca-Cola.
