I hurt myself in the gym by overdoing things last year. Then I spent about 8 weeks in physical therapy. That is the reason I crashed and burned.

I never really got my eating under control, so when I couldn’t workout anymore I seemed to lose control of things. I’ve gained all the weight that I lost, plus some.

So now I’m trying to get back on track, starting first with my diet. I have cut out all starches such as potatoes, rice, and bread. I am consuming complex carbs and proteins, and allowing one cheat day per week.

I got the idea from a book I am reading called, “The 4 Hour Body,” by Timothy Ferris. There are some solid ideas in the book. Some of the info I don’t agree with though, but, its a pretty interesting read.

I do think the basis o f the diet is sound and sustainable. Hopefully it will allow me some weight loss, then, maybe I can get back to some light workouts, or at least walking. I will try to keep recording my progress.
