This month marks 1 year since I started on this fitness journey. As a boyscout leader, it was embarassing to be in last place on our hikes. As a father, it was embarrassing when my 6 year old daughter told me I was getting fat.
After 3 months at the gym, 2 rounds of P90X and 30 days of Insanity Asylum and eating clean, my health and fitness have been completely changed. Through it all, I learned that nutrition makes up 70% of the results.
In fact, it's totally changed my life. My friends, coworkers and family have all been amazed. It's done wonders for my relationship with my wife too.
I highly recommend it for everyone. If I could do this, SO CAN YOU!
I've learned from past experience that people on these boards have wildly different interpretations of bodyfat estimations but using the Johnson/Pollock 4 method, fat calipers and an online calculator, it's coming in around 8% now. As a mesomorph... it seems pretty accurate.
