I've heard that your eating habits are the stuff of legends and that you're one of the most knowledgeable Subject Matter Experts on NYC area hamburgers.

I look forward to your postings.

I'm usually a member of the Clean Plate Club, but I wouldn't say it's legendary. Brian D and Robzilla can both put it away as well, and I'm sure others too.

There was a time when I made it a personal mission to seek out the city's best burgers, but a few years ago I took a step back and have since been more or less burgered-out.

I want to change the title of my training log to "I don't know if you heard me counting. I did over a thousand. "

I was hungry today I guess...

This evening:

1.5ish pounds of cooked kale. Just couldn't stop. sooo Gooood. (cooked in bacon and smoked turkey leg fat with chopped scallions salt and pepper, heaven) with copious amounts of olive oil as well, added :D

Protein drink: 1 cup water 1 cup milk 2tblsp olive oil 70ml powdered egg protein

Protein drink and creatine

lifting, lots of super yoke walking 1 liter water

For some unfathomable reason. 4 bacon double burgers.

1 liter water

Protein drink

bent over rows at home for the hell of it...

4g fish oil and 2g vitamin C

I'm still hungry, but I think I am going to sleep now since I have squats in the morning. I'm ready for them, and about two cups of fresh made quacamole in the fridge to start the fueling proper. :D

How tall and how heavy are you?
And the bacon double cheeses, homemade or store bought? I'm interested to know how big those were.


Just got back from a week in Maui. I didn't document my eating there and hopefullly I'll get off my ass later to at least log what I've eaten this week.

By conventional logic way too big, :), but I can do dead hang pullups on a good day ;), and working on more.

5' 10": Last weigh-in 350#s

For purely narcissistic reasons; all completely raw, no belt nothing, shorts and a tshirt.
DL: 550x1
(Last sereis final in Oct., not two months "offish" lots of hiking etc to relax started new series in mid Nov)
BS: DE band loaded box squat 12", standard foot width not wide - 580 top 400 bottom +\- 25#s x 3 x 2; just yesterday
OHP:275x3 (last series max)
BP: 365x5 (last series max)
PC: 225x5 (last series max)

Still deciding on this series' programming... Still training more PL than anything but I do OH squats and power cleans too on a weekly basis and strongman based stuff for some GPP, sled pulling etc.

And the burgers I cheated and bought them at Wendy's, no condiments just meat cheese and bun. no fries or soda either, just meat cheese bun lots of water :)

If anybody's been wondering what happened to my nutrition and workout logging, here's the sitch. My last posts were in late November, early December. Around that time I went on vacation in Maui, where I stopped keeping track of what I was eating and fell behind on my journal entries.

When I came back, I remained lazy with my food documentation. Moreover, only a few short weeks upon returning, I was scheduled to compete in a local CrossFit challenge. I started having doubts about the program I designed for myself and decided to resume following the CF main site WODs. If I was going to be the weak link on my affiliate's team, I didn't want it to be because I went maverick with my programming.

After the competition, for whatever reason, I ended up sticking with the CFHQ WODs. I still recorded my times and notes in the comments sections of my affiliate's blogs, but now that my workouts were no longer deviating much from the main site, I figured there was less need for me to go through the effort of logging here (not sure if that really makes sense though).

However, in accordance to the CrossFit Virtuosity 100 Day Six-Pack Challenge (http://crossfitvirtuosity.com/blogs/news/496-six-pack-challenge) (wfs), I've started documenting my meals and workouts again.

If you want to check out what I'm doing nowadays at the gym or see pictures of the stuff I'm putting into my mouth, you can do so here:
