    Hi RJ:

    I’ve been having a lot of success in recent weeks with adjusting diet patterns and getting in cardio. I’ve lost 14 lbs since April 1. That being said, I wanted to learn strategies use by others guys for planning out fitness and keeping on track. I was thinking about getting a large whiteboard with the days of the week on it and planning out my fitness goals so I can see them right in front of me all the time.

    The past few weeks have been about journaling my food consumption and it have been incredibly enlightening. I know the calorie count of everything now, lol. That aside, I have incorporated 100 minutes per week of moderate cardio, and I am now going to bump it to 150 minutes and introduce light lifting in an AM/PM split. I am part of a supervised study at a local university and they have me on 1,500 calories per day as well. After reeducating myself, I really can eat on 1,500, feel full and get what my body needs.

    Aside from a whiteboard, any other strategies being employed for laying out and adhering to a fitness regime?

    Patience, and lots of stuff that's Paleo diet friendly.

    Don't worry about the scales. Instead, take nude self-pics at least once a month. Posting them here is optional. Not really...you MUST post them! That'll give you the best view of your progress. Scales only tell you what you weigh.

    Cycle your eating. Go a week or two with the leaning diet (low calories), and a week or so with a bulking diet (more calories and protein). The progress will be slower, but it gives your skin time to shrink to the smaller size so it doesn't sag. It also give you a chance to pig out without feeling guilty.
