    diet really seems to be key, I know that's obvious but I now know you really need to live through it to truely see it. I've worked out in the past but when I did I wasn't strict with my diet so I got some results, but nothing spectacular. Keeping the diet straight makes it oh so much better.

    Since I had off of work today I was able to make it back out for an afternoon cardio session - 1 hr eliptical, minimal resistance level 5 out of 20 and kept pace between 3.5 and 4 mph.

    Dude, that is a killer amount of cardio. I wish I had your determination, and the ab work is sick too.

    keep the diet tight my friend...abs are made in the kitchen remember! or else every fool who spent hours just doing cardio at gyms would have 6 packs and you know they dont!

    but you are doing great. keep up the intensity with the weights...my gosh you could hang with me, with the amount of cardio u r doing. cardio is the devil...

    I'm doing DC for my lifting workouts for the last 2 months and the strength gains have been good. Diet wise I'm following a diet like palumbo preaches, keeping to less than 50 g carbs a day and limiting my calories to less than 2500 per day. My cheat meal is friday night, like last night i had 2 sweet potatos, then we went to chick fillet and I had chicken sandwich and fries and had some microwave popcorn with fat free butter spray on it. Thats why I follow up with Hiit cardio training on sat mornings.

    tonight I ate a little more than I should have for dinner but kept it low carb, had some chicken wings and a chicken blt salad, no idea how much fat was in the ranch dressing, probably way too much but I ate very clean the rest of the day.

    yes, the cheat meal is awesome, and two hours after the cheat meal my veins just seem to pop out. Putting those carbs in after abstaining for an entire week is such a refreshing feeling, it feels like your batteries just got changed. Then I sweat my ass off during the saturday morning workout cause of all the extra water i'm holding.
