Get lean or die mirin
Well my race to 200 thread went nowhere since my buddy fell off the wagon and I injured myself. Rehab is done and I'm feeling pretty good and getting back under the bar.

I've decided to give Jamie Lewis' APD a try. Soldier has a thread a little ways down that describes it, though it didn't work for him. The protocol can be found here: APD for Fat Fucks

So I am sitting at 175lbs, and about 25% bodyfat, maybe more going by these pictures. My lifts are very low thanks to my injury (lumbar disc herniation). I am relegated to front squats, sumo pulls, and rack pulls for legs/back - no pulling from the floor, doctor's orders. I'd guess I'm at 225/200/315 bench/front/sumo.

I don't really have a target weight, more like a target look. Eating "in moderation" has never really done the trick for me, so it's time for more extreme measures. At the very least, this should be interesting...

Just got done roasting up 10lbs of bone-in chicken thighs... grocery was out of beef short ribs but I'll get em sometime this week. Nothing but chicken, eggs and some leftover ground beef for the next few days.

Wings got me through and helped when I got tired of all the meat and eggs. I was even able to dip them in my beloved ranch which only added a few grams of carbs.

I really enjoyed the actual eating on the program and mentally it was a breeze. Unfortunately it just didn't work for my body. Good luck!

Here's what I ate today:

- a little cream in my coffee - not sure that this works on APD but I'm not letting good heavy cream go to waste
- 4 chicken thighs 68/60/840 protein/fat/cals
- 1 lb ground beef 112/80/1216
- protein shake 50/6/240 (for later tonight)

I am more than aware that all these numbers are rough estimates at best. Still interdasting to track though. Figuring in (guessing at) the cream, this works out to 230/150/10-ish protein/fat/carbs, and roughly 2,300 calories.

- black coffee
- 100g protein shakes total
- small bowl of chicken soup (no starchy carbs i.e. rice/potatoes)
- 3 chicken thighs, 12oz of ground beef

too lazy to work out the numbers
