I've been a subscriber of Mens Health for a while now, and I finally went out and bought the Abs Diet book. I've been reading about it for a while and took the time to now officially look into. So here's the deal.
Currently I'm 190 Lbs, 6'5. my BMI is 22.8 and my waist to hip ratio is 88%. My Body Fat index is around 14-17%. I'd like to get it down a bit lower and completely erase my love handles. Currently I have the 4pack but the I'd Like to have the six pack.
So here's the deal. On tuesday I'm going to start the Abs Diet. I have all my meals mapped out, and everything ready to go. I'll report on it here once a week. We will see how it goes. I don't have problems staying true to this stuff at all. The reason this is the first diet program I'm doing is because this is the first Diet I can understand. Low fat, low carb do very little in the end, but changing how you truly eat and eating food better for you will be the key to succeeding.
So if anyone actually reads this, I'll keep you informed :).
Reasons for doing this are three fold. The first is to have a more healthy body. Studies have proven across the field that a healthy person is much less likely to have heart disease and diabetes. The second is for a stronger core. Everything we do in life revolves something with our midsection. An in-shape mid section is key to no injuries in life. The third reason is for sex appeal. The first place most women look are either the eyes or the abs. Having a lean mid section is vital to garnering that first look of approval and arousal sexually.
I'm ready, lets roll.
