As I’ve mentioned in recent posts, I’ve been busy with my director position in a new company. As such, I haven’t had a much formal exercise… just intermittent fasting to stay lean (or get leaner).
My muscle hasn’t had much exercise stimulus in a couple of months, and as a result it has reduced in size — which is fine with me as my goal at the beginning of this year was to lose some muscle mass to achieve a different look, one that gives the appearance of leaner and “longer” (did I say that?) physique, a sort of Hollywood look.
Anyway, I’ve been able to maintain an intermittent fasting lifestyle in order to stay lean, which was the easy part. Even with reduced formal exercise, I believe I’m leaner than I’ve been in a very long time. Feels great!
Here are a couple of pictures taken on July 4th, after eating all afternoon and drinking wine. No flex, I promise!
By the way, I have not always been this lean, as I grew up a consistently fat kid. Even on the Paleo diet I carried a layer of fat — I just ate too much of even the “right food.”
To show you, here’s a picture taken well over a year ago (March 2009), the day before I adopted intermittent fasting, which would become the current lifestyle I now live by. In this photo, I’ve been eating a Paleo diet for quite some time.
Whatever the circumstance in life, you can always rely on the simplicity of intermittent fasting to achieve and maintain a lean body.
