On May 2 of 2011 I started a body composition project and a microsite as a way to help track my Four Hour Body journey as well as compare and analyze the physical changes that ones body undergoes utilizing various workouts and dietary regimens. Since that time the site has expanded and we have welcomed several new bloggers who have been generously documenting their journey and making real progress towards reaching their goals. I hope to be posting their photos here in our next update as well. Specifically TC who has really been crushing it Paleo Style, and Zila who is on day 8 of her 4 Hour Body Slow Carb Challenge.
These are the results of myself and my family. Jennifer and Patrick started their program prior to our tracking and have gone on to lose quite a bit of weight. In total, Jennifer has lost over 110 pounds, and Patrick has lost nearly 70. I am extremely proud of them both.
As for me, quite a bit has changed. My body composition and health are generally much better and my workout routine is automated and simpler. My knowledge of what is healthy, both in terms of diet and exercise has expanded greatly (and continues to evolve). This has also translated into better health for my patients, many who have gone on to make real long lasting health changes… I will share more of this with you in the future.
This has been a paradigm shift for me, one that is leading to knew ways of designing health plans that I am truly excited about.
Here are our results from Day 1 through Day 365 (This is designed to be a 3 year project)
