Hello-brand new member here.
My wife and I have been inching toward to 80-10-10 for a while. To be perfectly honest I've been inching more slowly than she--early returns are mostly good. I can certainly say I don't suffer from cravings when I eat enough fruit.
I am about to participate in a biggest loser competition at my gym and I actually plan to use this experience as a test of a full-on commitment to 80-10-10 and, perhaps, a demonstration of the impact of this lifestyle to others.
A couple of thoughts, or questions.
I do like working out and I think I work out with a fair bit of intensity considering the fact I'm 58. As part of the competition, however, I will be working out with a personal trainer. And by past experience a trainer will kick up my intensity by several notches. So I'm curious regarding the impact of the High Carb Low Fat diet on my ability to work out really hard and recover.
My goal is to lose 25 pounds over the course of the contest (12 weeks I think.) It would be awesome if all that weight loss would be fat and awesomer if I could even gain a pound or two of lean muscle mass.
I don't know if that is possible.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
