I'm back and getting gripped!!

Yes it has been a long time. I was staying away for a reason. I really wanted to get my shit together. For decades I have relied almost exclusively on exercise for weight management. For many years this worked well but for the last 10 it has not. The best I could hope for with exercise only is to maintain a weight that was too high for me.

Time and time again I have proven that exercise alone is not very effective at weight loss. As much as I resisted, I found that 90% of weight loss comes through diet. Exercise it almost irrelevant for weight loss unless you are professional athlete or someone who at least trains like one. Exercise is great for a lot of things but weight loss is not one of them, at least not for people that train like we do.

I have been eating a starch based diet for the better part of two months. I have gone from a 38 waist down to a 34 waist and I think I can get down to 32s. I eat no meat but occasionally will eat some dairy, too much if you ask me.  If I can get rid of dairy altogether, I’ll be gold. I like eating this way. It feels good.  When I eat like this it doesn’t matter if I have a few beers. It doesn’t matter whether or not I work out. My diet takes care of everything.


Exercise still figures in but not nearly as much. Right now I am just doing S&S with the 40kg bell. This program addresses joint mobility, strength, cardio and flexibility. For kicks I also toss in a set of dips and pullups at the end. I don’t over exercise on this program.  It doesn’t make me want to eat too much and it doesn’t beat me up.  I stay fresh. Once I get down to a 32 waist I will post YouTubes or maybe pictures of my results. I feel pretty damn good these days

  4. When was your "light bulb moment" Rant, when you read Karen Carpenter's biography? What a dick.......

  5. There was no light bulb moment. I had a vegan-ish house guest and just started cooking that way for him. I just applied it to myself.

    1. Clearly it's the opposite of "getting a grip".

  12. So you had a male "veganish" house guest? Did you make him wear only thongs and fan you with a palm leaf?

    Also, was he Morrocon?

    We go down this road every summer Rant. Your dull repetitive tales of weight loss and spiritual enlightenment have become a parody of themselves. For the sake of your readers, please vanquish this blog.

  14. Video or it didn't happen.

    P.S.: Did your wife also go vegan or does she nibble on a piece of meat once in a while?
    I'm just asking.

    At Mrs. Rant's "handjob kiosk", there's advertized a procedure there known as a fireman's slushi.

    Anyone had one, and what does it entail?

    1. Not entirely sure George, but I've heard she has to wear goggles while she's doing it.

      OK, thanks kid. You've kinda answered my query anyway. I was sorta hoping it was an actual fireman that gave the slushi, if you get what I mean.....

    1. We all know it's you John. I mean, who's actually gonna have a google account to log into this cesspit with?

      "Toad"! Kinda funny I suppose.

      Anyway, it's over. Better to finish your blogging career with a little dignity than none at all. Look at Perez Hilton - that could be you if you're not careful.....

    2. Look, it's Rant's two worst ever sock-puppets having a conversation with one another!

      It's almost makes you long for FuknAngst again. Maybe. OK, not really, but you get what I'm sayin'.....

    3. AAAAUUUUUGHHHHH! I'm not Rant, douche! I'm not digitally cuckholded on a daily basis at the local mall's clean & jerk kiosk, and an I'm not the proud sire of 17 squealing little rantlets!! If only!! Now stop being a giant cunt, cunt!

  23. If it's true about Rant's wife being a "Greek Cypriot", doesn't that mean his children are technically mulattoes?

  24. Rant, nobody gives a fuck anymore. Grill is gone, as well as ABW, Lemongello, Admiral Saltspray, Blackthorn, Citizen X, rants alter ego, FuknAngst.
    Your pageviews have slowed and all you've got left is Concerned cunt and Toad (and that's assuming Toad isn't you).

  26. RIP Jimmy Moore.

    Gunned down because of hate; hatred of straight white guys who are so comfortable in their own skin that they don't mind visiting gay clubs in Orlando as an after cruise wind-down with Jaquin and Raul.
