Lean Strength Challenge

Ok, I'm challenging myself to an abbreviated "Lean Strength" challenge. It will begin now and run through April. I'll take before and after photo's to see if I'm full of shit, or if this shit really works. Try to do the same for yourself. I'm not calling it "fat loss", and definitely not weight loss. This is my version of "Lean Strength". Nothing new here, lots of guys are doing very similar things, such as "Lean Hybrid Muscle", from Elliot Hulse and Mike Westerdal, which is phenomenal stuff by the way. It pushes the pace and challenges you consistently. But, all the hard work in the world will not get you to your maximal potential without proper nutrition. So, I will be addressing these key points over the next few weeks. Today I will post the basic guidelines to eating for enhanced health and performance. I am not an expert on the subject matter and I realize there are many varying points of view on the subject, many of which are very controversial because people want to promote their products, etc. I will not get too detailed into carb cycling and special diets and hyperinsulinism and eating this not that, and hormonal response to particular foods and effects of leptin on fat loss, etc. This is not my area, but I will provide basic guidelines to adhere to for best results. Get ready to clean out your pantry and sweat your ass off, its gonna get interesting to see how far we can push ourselves in our quest for Lean Strength! Let us begin...
