As most of you know, for the past few months my diet and training have changed quite a lot compared to how I’ve done things in years past…

DIET: I no longer eat every 3 hours (I simply eat when I’m hungry), I don’t count calories anymore and I’ve added much more variety to my diet. I’ve successfully maintained my body fat percentage while doing this, and I no longer feel like I’m a slave to food.

WEIGHT TRAINING: I still love training with weights, and I still train hard, but I’m not locked into any particular style of training or routine. I get in the gym and have fun. Sometimes I do the same weight training routine for a few weeks, and other times I’ll simply get in there and wing it.

CARDIO: I no longer do any formal cardio on the recumbent bike, and I’ve been spending lots of time outside on a real bike. I am falling in love with outdoor biking, and I expect that once I start riding off-road I’m really going to get in deep.

All these changes I’ve made have come at a “price”: I’ve lost a decent amount of muscle, especially over the past month as I’ve been riding more frequently and for longer distances (often without breaks for food). I’m still pretty muscular, but I’m nowhere near as big as I was at the end of my 2008 bulk. The reason I put “price” in quotes is because I really don’t care about the muscle loss. What I do care about is being healthy, in good shape and happy. I am all of those things, and I truly feel like I’ve finally found the balance I’ve been searching for all these years.

I am still going to run a cutting cycle starting in January. Right now my body fat percentage is perfectly healthy at around 12.5%, but it’s a little high for my liking. I want to cut down to sub-10% and then maintain.
