I saw this and thought it was kind of interesting...
Its a personal trainer who has spent the last six months not exercising and eating badly to get as fat as possible. He is then going to spend the next six months getting fit again and post online how he goes about it.
Heh. A few years back I did the same thing. I was laid up for three months because of a minor hospital op. Put on three stones in three months. Didn't blog about it, though.
Shifting the lard took about twice as long as it did to put it on. I think I've still got some of it.
I went fit to stick to fit.
It took me 2 years to get my fitness back, maybe 3.
Anyone can lose weight, anyone can get fit.
The things that stop us have nothing to do with what diet we are on, what exercise programme we use. It's what motivates us, how much we want the end result, how driven we are to achieve that goal and how important it is to us. Also, how much we enjoy what we are doing.
He will still have an amount of muscle underneath all that fat. I doubt that he is eating excessively over what he used to eat, just not exercising and therefore burning the calories. He can't replicate going from couch potato to fit, he didn't start as a couch potato and his calorie burn will probably be greater.
One key thing is not the amount he is eating but that he is now eating loads of sugary junk food, which he wasn't doing previously. When it comes to body composition I think that makes more difference than anything else.
Anyway, I predict stretch-marks and saggy skin!
