Thanks Gant, and you have helped me to see a problem I have. I tend to get big losses in week 1 due to loss of water weight, and in week 2 or 3 when the weight loss stalls I tend to start looking around for something "better." I constantly suffer from "paralysis by analysis." Now I know there's nothing wrong with studying anything I can, because you can always learn more and implement things that work, but I do have a problem with always looking for the "best" thing rather than sticking to things.
I have picked some things up that I really like, so here's the plan I'm going to go with for the next 3-4 months (to give it a fair shake). I been crossfitting for a while now, and just stumbled on CF Football. I love it. I love that there's a strength WOD AND a regular WOD everyday. I'm going to mix in a couple steady state running days a week, just so that I can get my stamina up because I want to go to officer candidate school in the Air Force. As far as diet, I really like the anabolic solution. From my research it appears as though I have a fair amount of insulin resistance, so I should go low carb. But I like that the AD is cyclical, thereby restoring glycogen, and, well, giving me a little room to cheat once a week, to help keep me on the eating plan. I've been doing this for a couple weeks now. I also eat Paleo, with the exception of eating some cheese during the week, and I have some non-Paleo foods on my carb up days. I also mix in IF as often as I can. I love fasting, but it's not always an option (because as a college student I don't always get as much sleep as I'd like, and IFing on inadequate sleep is just the worst). This is going to be my overall approach to health and fitness in the upcoming months, and I think it's going to work well. Thanks.
