Day one of Skinny Hippo - all liquid diet

2 weeks of Skinny Hippo - high fat calorie restricted - should be interesting to see how low I can go at this point. When I first started CrossFitting something like 4 years ago, my average weight was 190. Now my average weight is 210. I wonder what I'll look like if I get down to 200? We'll find out :)

First shake down - the next 48 hours should be interesting.

PS - I haven't been sick (except for a bit of food poisoning several weeks back) for a good long while. I think it's been over a year! Moving forward, if I suffer any illness, I'll post it on the blog. I truly believe that I have become immune to the majority of illnesses that abound. Knocking on wood! And in this particular instance, that is not a sexual reference in case you were wondering.


  1. Any updates since January, Garth?

    1. Overwhelmingly busy at work which has thwarted any plans to maintain the blog but skinny hippo was an excellent catalyst getting me back down to single digit #'s on percentage of fat. Currently I'm tracking food intake at around 225g of fat, 30g of carbs and less than 150g of protein each day. Never sick - always energized - and lean as hell :)
      Getting in the fat is a challenge. Butter, coconut cream, pork belly and tallow are a staple.
      Good stuff!

  2. I have an internet site We are updating several times per week
    with original animations and short films along with concept art to the animations and other
    types of media. How do i copyright everything on my site so the copyright info We have around the bottom of
    every page "All original content (C) 2008 (My Name)" actually means something?
    Will my logo, site name, all content be copyrighted?

  3. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or
    guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog centered
    on the same subjects you discuss and would really
    like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my audience would value your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  5. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had
    problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  12. This site has some advantages expressed by current users that I discuss later.
    If you are getting an internet business off the ground,
    or you have been in the game for a while, but don't understand why you can't get a good response from your
    clients or prospective clients, than you already know that communication is one of the most important currencies around when it
    comes to doing businesses online. This will backup the My - SQL Wordpress database, which can be
