I would suggest photos of your body as well. And blood work if you want to spend the money. I started to 'adjust' my diet late summer 2012....took no photos & did no blood work, now I regret it. :(

i agree with the others. you don't have enough fat to lose. i think you look fine just the way you are. i'm not really sure what the 21 day sugar detox entails. do most people lose weight on it?

If you want to eat before hand (not a necessity) then I suggest a banana. Lots of good nutrients, higher in glucose than fructose, and some carbs. For post workout eat whatever you like. Protein is important, and with 6/week you may want to put... (more)

Same. A month before my 40th birthday last year I decided that my 40's self would kick my 30's self's ass. It's been a year of Paleohacks, Wolf, Cordain, Masterjohn, Davis, Harris, et al...and my old self wouldn't stand a chance.
