    New personal records
    Deadlift 3x8 worked up to 250 pounds
    Squats 3x8 worked up to 250 pounds
    Incline leg press .. worked up to 12 x 45 pound plates.

    Currently at 5 meals a day. 5 days of eggs, fish, chicken and beef. 2 days (leg days) I add some carbs otherwise I can’t recover. Added fat is only coconut milk/oil.

    BS is in the 4s, but I’ve only been testing a couple times a week. I’ll order a libre in January to see what’s going on,

    My n=1 experiment, T2 in itself did not prevent me from packing on the muscle. Eat clean, train hard and sleep a lot

    Outstanding... now drop and give me 50... lol

    That's some great progress, it's even better if you enjoy it which is the key to exercise success. Wish you continued results!

    Planning to retire and....
    Become a beach bum and learning to surf.
    Start my own tiki like religion, with lots of incense, sacred coconuts and stuff. Carbs would be the forbidden evil. My last attempt failed, I found a coconut and made an altar, but the coconut dried up, cracked and leaked all over the place.
