One day I woke up got out of bed. I stood in front of the mirror and thought, "Who is this fat bastard?" I was fat, really fat and in terrible shape. I'd get winded just brushing my teeth, keeping up with my toddler son, or walking to the couch.
It was not always that way, but I am from a family with a tendency towards obesity, with a sedentary job as a computer engineer, and a penchant for good food (and lots of it). I knew it was a recipe for disaster. I saw how I was slowly morphing into the jelly donuts that made their way into my mouth at Monday morning meetings.
I decided then and there that I was going to lose the fat. In pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, I went online to find a fitness program that would work for me. I was confronted with a serious deluge of marketing BS, expensive online programs, food supplements and training equipment.
After wasting a lot of time and money I stumbled across some great sites that offer a wealth of very good, honest how-to information that was credible and not just a ploy to get me to buy things. I went from 212 to 175 while adding allot more muscle and have maintained it ever since.
This site is my effort to organize what I have found to work for other people like me without allot of time who want to get in shape in the most straightforward and effective way.
