Up until this point I had tried everything. I did P90X, Bodybeast, T25, and I would slowly lose weight. I would lose 5 lbs over the course of 2 months, at that pace it would take 3 years to hit my target weight.
It was discouraging. Everytime I did a workout, I felt like what's the point. Is this even working?
I tried every diet imaginable. I ate like a caveman, I ate like a dinosaur, I ate nothing but plants. NOTHING WAS WORKING!
I needed a system that burns fat as fuel.
Time for another experiment. I started experimenting with different calories per day, different ratios of fat, protein and carbs. My focus was to burn the fat. I desperately needed to drop the weight.
The 70.3 was going to be hard enough, why should I carry an extra 70 lbs. of weight through that race. Seemed to me the easiest way to get faster was to get leaner.
