Fat Loss – Muscle Gain
I have been battling my weight for over 20 years doing the yo-yo plan. One issue in my mind was diabetes, which runs heavily in my family and was warned by my Dr. that I needed to control my weight or I would eventually have diabetes. So three years ago I started doing running events which led to triathlons and my weight dropped due to the training combined with eating better. I had thought that now I will be able to maintain my weight going forward. However I would bottom out at about 184 lbs. in the summer no matter how many hours I trained and could not figure out why I would not lose any more weight. During the winter months I would then approach the 200 lb area as training decreased. I ate what I thought was a good diet but the yo yo was still going on and I had excessive body fat.
After deciding to do an Iron Man this year, I knew that weight would be a key factor even if I got back to 184lbs, so I signed up with Darin. My goal was to become lighter, leaner, stronger and faster. “Darin is the Man with the Plan” as I have met these goals and continue to lose more weight as I’m approaching my married weight of 165 lbs from 22 years ago. After finishing Darin’s program, I now have all the tools being food structure, weight training, knowledge and confidence to meet all my future goals and stay healthy. And I’m going to whip this Iron Man right in the butt later this year, no problem! Thanks Darin!
