I just got back from the gym. Last Tuesday I weighed 205, 41 inches around the belly-button/love handles area. Today (Monday) I was at 202, 40.5 inches.
Those love handles are stubborn. I once starved myself down to 165 and still had them, but I was losing muscle. Not a good combination.
I can pretty much guarantee I’m not losing any muscle mass now and may have increased it a bit, because I was able to lift more weight or do more reps on every machine today compared to my workout on Friday. Maybe there’s a reason body-builders consume whey protein powders. I might continue having a protein shake on workout days when I’m done with The Cure.
Tomorrow, I’m going to post another recipe by Jason Sandeman, the Well Done Chef.
