Sounds like a good plan to me. Only to watch with the protien is no more the 30 grams a "meal" my dietitian and surgeon stress this since the body can only absorb 30 grams at a time so anything else is just pushed through the body.Man you guys are studs! I've had a hard time maintaining any consistency this winter. I get on a good roll and get a bug or company comes or life gets busy... I'm probably just making excuses but I am moving forward with this plan and goals.
1. Weigh 225 by Sept. 1st (I'm still down around 20 lbs. from a high point a year ago but have stalled) Current weight this morning 251
2. Maintain functional strength & increase mountain cardio
Diet - Limit calories to as close to 2k per day as possible with an emphasis on lean protein (1 gram per lb. of bodyweight)
Monday & Wednesday - 1 hour ruck with 50 lb. pack before work
Tuesday & Thursday - Lift and HIIT cardio before work
Fri, Sat, Sunday - Active rest (hiking, fishing, spend as much time in the mountains with my family as possible)

That's interesting. I've dropped my calories to 2030 per day and that's about as low as I can go and not want to strangle somebody! I cannot imagine 1200-1300. Why so few calories?They actually dont want me much above 100 grams a day and im sitting right atound 215 and eatting 1200-1300 calories a day
