Despite my commitment to the gym, I'd been unable to drop the weight I wanted so a few weeks ago I opted to modify my diet to augement my efforts in the gym. In mid-to-late June I stopped eating meat and increased my in-take of fruit and veggies. After one week I dropped 7 lbs. I'm not really sure that anyone could see the difference, but psychologically it was a huge boost.
Of course, after spending the weekend in Provincetown over the 4th of July, I was humbled by the number of defined abdominals and the general fitness level of the guys there so I've redoubled my efforts with my personal trainer Stu.
How are you doing with your diet and work out routine? Do you work out regularly? I'm in pretty good shape, but I would like to continue to build muscle mass and shrink my waist with which I seem to be permanently at war. I plan on maintaining my 'vegetarian' status through the summer since it has helped me shave off a few extra pounds, but I'm interested to hear if you have any fitness or diet tips.
