A Pristine ’18!

Now that ‘Carb-mas’ is over, I’m getting back on the KetoTrain. Started today off with some coconut oil coffee, bacon, and eggs. I’m going to do a better job at posting my macros at the end of the day. I’m trying to get to 80% fat, 15% protein, 5% carbs. Any time that I can get more fat than that, I’m calling that a victory. I’m going to hit the gym with a progressive volume overload in mind. I think that a few months off of crushing myself has help reset my metabolism, and I can once again start out at the friggin’ rock bottom! I should have maintained some strength, because like I said, that progressive body split I put myself through gets you strong and keeps you strong.

This year on joshdoes.com, I’m going to post or link to you guys what I read/learn/watch. I’m probably the most knowledgeable regular Joe when it comes to health and fitness that is also not healthy or fit. I drink a little too often, and I am completely inconsistent when it comes to exercise. I’m all in or all out! I will put less time under the bar, and I’m going to work on my flexibility for the first couple months. It’s G’off’season (golf’s off season), and this is where the swing is forged for the season.

I hope to get some more things going on here this year, and I need your participation. What would you like to know? What would you like me to try? I’ll be your guinea pig. I wish you all a great new year, and I hope you get strong and stay strong!

    1. So, I have 3 types of days. 1: 24 hour Fast. Try it. It’s not as hard as you might think. Throw one in every couple weeks. It does wonders for your insulin/protein/carbohydrate sensitivity. 2: Work-out days. These are days where I’ll hit around 2,500-3,000 calories. This is actually really hard to do while keeping to the Ketogenic Macros. The protein really makes it hard due to their high caloric content. I find that eating fatty cuts of meats makes it easier.
      Work Out Day: Breakfast: 3 eggs, 3 strips of bacon, 1-2 TBS of coconut oil in my coffee. Snack: Handful of nuts (cashew, almond, macadamia, walnut, brazil) and some green tea. Lunch: Big Ridiculous Salad: 2-3 handfuls of some ‘super green’ salad mix, 1 avocado, 1 cup of green olives, 1 cup of Kalamata olives, some sort of cheese (real cheese, preferably grass-fed and/or goat cheese). Some sort of meat on top of that (salmon, chicken thighs, strip or rib-eye steak). I might have a protein shake depending on where my carbs are but not every day. Dinner: Asparagus, broccoli, or cauliflower cooked and drizzled in olive or avocado oil. Some sort of fatty meat again. Probably an avocado. I eat 2-3 avocados a day. I love them. I’ll do what ever it takes to get the macros right, i.e., just eat some coconut oil.

      Non-workout Day: I have 1-2 cups of coffee with a TBS of coconut oil. Also, it depends on what else is going on that day. If I’m having dinner out, I’ll just eat the handful of nuts and wait. If it is a quiet evening, I’ll eat that Big Ridiculous Salad for lunch. I’ll have either an avocado or nuts. I try to shoot for 1,500-1,800 calories on the slow days.

      I do a pretty good job with the intermittent fasting every day 12-16 hours between my last meal and my first. I do a really good job with what I eat. It’s what I drink that really kills me on the weekends. They should make bottles of wine smaller I guess. You should calculate your lean muscle mass (body fat % – total weight) convert these into kilograms. Try to eat 1gram of protein per kilo lean mass. Fill the rest in with super delicious fat.

      Thanks for the question, Leslie. I hope this is what you were looking for. If not, hit me back.
