Oh, as for how I determine my deficit...

I assume a "do nothing" metabolic rate for myself as 2,600 per day. In fact, I think it's slightly higher, but I work with that.

I assume a good, hard 1-hour gym workout is 600 calories. I take my bike computer's word for it with respect to calories burned - roughly 40 per mile.

So, a ketosis-driven diet is 60:35:5 fat/protein/carb. Keeping the fat high is critical to prevent bouts of hunger. I'm grumpy for the first couple of days and then I'm fine, and after a week I actually begin to forget to eat.

So if I'm totally sedentary I will try to do a 500-cal deficit. If I do something crazy like do a workout and then ride my bike 90 miles (thereby having a total burn on the day of around 6,800 calories) I will limit my deficit to 1,500 or so, as your body can only mobilize so much fat in a day. Of course, if you're exercising like that, you can easily eat 100+ carbs a day and stay in ketosis, but I make up most of the extra in meat, eggs, nuts, and vegetables. Doused in hollandaise or ranch dressing, of course.

Anyway - that's how I work. Your mileage may vary.

Careful. Don't set your sights too low. I'm not much younger and most certainly can get a six pack. Most the time I have a solid 4 with the a hint of the six as I can't stay at 10% bodyfat -All -The -Time. That's the thing now, its too easy to compromise.

I would rather look like I do than eat like "they" do. But damn that pizza sometimes looks good!

Plus when you start seeing slight changes that absolutely fires up your efforts even more. Was shaving one day and looked up and noticed those V-lines were suddenly apparent. Redoubled my efforts at the gym the next day. Not looking for a cut six-pack...not at my age...but just the beginnings of one and I'll be happy.

VA, you have enough dedication to get it done.

biggest challenge will be presenting yourself with new challenges periodically. that is, doing what you've always done, or are used to doing, will maintain, and not necessarily make further changes to your physique.

part of my afternoon tomorrow will be mapping out a a short term plan to start effecting the changes to my routine that i need, in order to see the physical changes i want.

Well, thanks guys. Ultimately I wanna be able to see my abs (this is as close as I've ever gotten) and I want rid of my fucking love handles. I figure I need to lose around another 10-15 pounds of fat before I can really make that happen.

njny - that's not a bad weight...and you are right on what you say. VA - you both look great in all your pics so I can't really imagine you with a gut. Me I'm bouncing between 185 and 195. I've never had a belly so I guess I'm lucky in that regard. But it's definitely in my genes...my dad, who I am spitting image of is over 240 so that's my motivation...

all of you look great in your pics.

something i tried to get students to understand when i was teaching classes & training is to not let a number (weight or size) define you. it is all about how we feel in our own skins.

i have been hovering right at 160 for a couple years with a few lbs up in the winter.

now that i can focus my concentration away from managing stress and being my own lawyer it frees me up to get back to what i hope will be my new "set" point, somewhere in the low 150's high 140's where i hope to look absolutely fierce.

FHTOTD: good gym workout done, dancing to look forward to tonight. it's all good!

Well we ain't fit like we'd like to be, but we're probably in a place that if we held onto it we'll be good for the rest of our lives.

My "magic number" for weight is about 208. What I mean by that is that above 208 I begin rounding out my belly and show a bit more roundness in my face. I notice that I get way more attention when I'm down around 202-205 than when I'm about 215. I'm guessing more than anything because shirts hang off my chest and shoulders below 208, and they rest a little on my belly above it, so it changes the way clothes look on me.
