“I feel really great about the changes. I have never been as fit, energetic or strong in my life.
I tell you what though, as a single dad with 2 kids who works full time, it was hard work. But I’m glad I stuck with it. For me, the most challenging part of it all was squeezing in the workout straight after putting the kids to bed, followed by meal prep. About halfway through, seeing my results, I felt more comfortable letting go of the perception of eating ‘clean’ and started following a more IIFYM approach without any noticeable decline in progress.
Andy, I’ve loved the whole process beginning to end. The points you drove home and said would happen, did happen and the articles you had to back them up were extremely handy. I’m referring to stalls, feeling like changing things up or doing stupid things. I trusted in the process and stuck to things and it has paid off. Abs are not far away and a very real outcome. It’s amazing how when you’re fat you think that shedding fat will reveal this muscular body, but reality could be very different. In my case, I will be a skinny dude with slightly more muscle definition, which is not a bad thing at all. I will just continue the cut for a month or more and then try a slow bulk.”
