The last time I checked in on my weight loss log was August 2012. At that time I was 168 pounds and 20 percent body fast measured using the US Navy Body Fat calculator at a height of 5’9, weight 168, neck 15 inches and waist at belly button of 35. Since that time I have lost a half inch around my neck and gained an inch around my belly and gained 7 pounds, three of which are muscle. That brings my current stats up to 22% body fat. Needless to say this is not making me very happy, especially considering the effort I expend on a daily basis to attempt to remain fit.
So in the last few months I’ve embarked on a couple of different experiments in order to push my body fat percentage down. I know of course that I can apply the techniques used in Lyle McDonald’s body recomposition.com and push my percent body fat down, but that technique does not support a lot of aerobic activity and since that is an important part of my life I’d rather not go that road.
