Last time I tried to eat well and get in shape I did it the manic-depressive way: I went from eating exclusively junk carbs and drinking 2 gallons of beer a day to an extremely strict ketogenic diet, exercising obssesively. In two months I burned 35 lbs of fat, but as soon as I fucked up I bounced back to my old obese habits with full force. One month after that my body composition is completely fucked up and I've gained around 15 lbs of fat.
So, this time I'm going to do it with intelligence, thinking long term, refusing to submit to the anxiety of getting instant results. I'll se how it works.
Instead of relying on a ketogenic diet I will use the a more balanced diet which allows some carbs taken from healthy sources. I will lose weight slowlier, but I believe it's a more socially acceptable way of eating, and still healthy.
Regarding exercise, I'm going to perform a daily rutine of light bodyweight exercices: mainly air squats and pull ups. The days I'm too tired from work I will rest. Besides that I will walk, work, and do social activities outdoors, like rowing. This won't get me ripped, but in all honesty I don't give a fuck -- I don't want exercise to rule my life, much less now that I am moving to a new place, need to find a new job, etc. I need my time spent in other more productive pursuits.
