The Plan

The plan looks quite simple on paper.  Lose 60 pounds by January 31, 2012.  I'm determined to do this the real way.  No cheating and having surgery.

  • I'm eating the 1800 calorie Diabetes Diet as laid out here. It's loosely based on the Diabetes diet from Mayo clinic.   
  • Eat every 2-3  hours to keep up my metabolism.
  • Drink a Glass of Water with every meal, and 30 minutes before and immediately after a workout.
  • Getting enough sleep is also very important.

  • Work out 5 days a week.  
  • 5 days of cardio
  • 3 days of weight training. 
  • Workouts are never less than 30 minutes.
  • Cardio is done before breakfast.
  • I do weights before dinner.

You can see a sample weekly menu here.  I'll make my weekly menu each Sunday.  I won't have the time to post it each week, but if you'd like a copy you can email me at  I make it out on an Excel Spreadsheet.  I also use an iPad app to make my grocery list each week and can email that as well.
