A good friend of mine's girlfriend broke up with him a couple months ago so now he's trying to hit the gym hard. He says he started at 280 and wants to get back under 220 at least. He's always calling me asking questions about how to do things so I'll send this to him so he can do some reading.
Anyway, I've been lifting 4-5 days a week as usual but have changed my eating habits. I've been really trying to cut high fructose corn syrup out of my diet completely so I haven't had soda or white bread for quite some time. Truthfully, I was only drinking about a cup of soda (cumulative) per week anyway so that wasn't too hard, but the white bread was a killer for me. I like to eat 3 or 4 slices of butter bread with meals for the calories. When I discovered the bread I was buying had HFCS as one of its main ingredients, I immediately switched to wheat bread.
I feel like everything we eat is shitty, but it makes me feel better at the very least.
