Engineering The Alpha by @JohnRomaniello and @BornFitness

So for the last 6 months I’ve been working pretty hard on my fitness. I now cycle almost everywhere I go, I gym 2-3 days a week (sometimes more), I eat great and I try my hardest to take care of my food as well. An early experiment in Intermittent Fasting (IF) saw me get some great early weight loss, but mostly I’ve been doing it all blind and without much focus so my results have been mixed.

As the title suggests, a few weeks ago a book was released called “Engineering The Alpha,” by John Romaniello and Adam Bornstein. It kinda ties it all together. It takes an awesome, flexible approach to IF, combines it with foods that manipulates your hormones for maximum results and ties it together with a workout system designed specifically for the entire package.

After reading the book I was really excited to get a start on things. Previously the idea of meal planning or scheduling my life for fitness might have felt restrictive or annoying, but John and Adam write the book, and explain the science, in such a way that the increased understanding I have of why has me so much more focused on doing it and going nuts.

So, I kick it all off tomorrow. In the last 6 months I’ve lost a massive 17kgs, but I have a lot more to lose. My current stats…

Current Weight: 82kgs
Body Fat: 19% (approx)

… and beginning today I will do a weekly update every Sunday (Cheat Day).
