Yeah… I decided to get back on the fitness wagon. I will begin with simple caloric reduction. From there, I will add a progressive exercise routine.

For now, I am planning on limiting my daily caloric intake to 1,800 kCal or below. My basal metobolic rate (BMR) shows that I require about 2,200 calories per day to maintain my weight. That means that without exercise, I should lose about 400 kCal a day. The one exception wil be in the area of exercise… when I exercise, I will add the amount of calories burned to the total allowed for the day.

I am also planning to fit my calories into this rough breakdown – Fat (25-35%), Carbohydrates (45-55%), and Protein (15-25%.)

And don’t worry, I won’t shock you with the shirtless before picture. 🙂
