consistent clean eating
5-6 small meals a day
eating every 2.5-3 hours
water with every meal
NO EXCUSES = RESULTS!

"The mother of all before and after pictures. A friend of mine posted the photo on the left on his Facebook page. I lost a photo album of mine with all pictures of me from this era. The photo on the left is a little over 15 years old. I am 34 years old, 168 pounds and maybe 11 percent body fat, with a drink in my hand which was de rigor for me back then... The photo on the right is me weeks before my 50th birthday. 200 pounds even and 8 percent body fat... To add insult to injury, the new me could kick the younger me's living ass. Badly. Moral of the story: Don't you people give me any sh!t about "I'm getting older and miss my youth blah, blah, f-cking blah." I seriously don't want to hear it. Get off your soft, liver-spotted asses and do something. Not tomorrow, today. Class dismissed."
