So, here we are.
I (Phatdogg) weighed in at 200 lbs, and 6'4" tall. about a year and a half ago my weight would have been 240lbs but I took up cycling and dropped a bit of that weight.
Having said that what I am hoping for most from following the food guide is energy at the right times (during the day) and sleep at night. I have been told by a psychologist that I demonstrate symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder; one of which is chronic insomnia.
I expect the biggest challenge for me will be limiting the sugars, fats and high-calorie snacks that I enjoy.
Anyway, here's hoping for a better life ... starting with my diet.
