Now, what turned me onto to Weight Watchers is that I can eat real food. I have always had troubles knowing what foods I can eat or how much food a good healthy portion consisted of. I have learned through Weight Watchers, so far, what kinds of foods are good to eat and what portion sizes are good based on my body type. The program is based on a points system that is catered to what type of body you have. The amount of points I am allowed per day is 42. Trust me I have been stuffed every single day since I have started. I learned in the past that spacing your meals out during the day with smaller portions helps fuel your metabolism at a faster rate witch burns more fat. You got to fuel the body in order to burn the fat. I try to eat with 2-3 hour between meals and I try not to eat after 8:30pm.
I will be honest with everyone. I tried Weight Watchers for a little time back in college and I was to lazy to keep it going. I was also embarrassed to show up at the weekly meetings in my area because I was the youngest person there and the only guy. I wish I could go back in time and smack myself in the face for not continuing to improve my health. I like I said yesterday we all learn from our mistakes and failures. The type of Weight Watchers program I signed up for is online and it is specialized for men. How great is that!!! I can follow the program online, I don't need to go to the meetings, and it is specialized for men.
Like I mentioned early is this post, I don't work for Weight Watchers and I certainly do not get paid to promote their product. I am just a regular person like everyone else trying to get healthier. If anyone has any questions or advice please feel free to message or comment to me all you want. I will also provide the link to the website if anyone is curious and wants to check it out.

With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
