The TNT book actually fleshed out what was outlined on the Men’s Health web site.  I must have read the book 3 times or more.  From November 2007 onward, I also spent a lot of time on the Web site and read every post there was to read on the TNT Forum.

During that period of time, one of the authors, Adam Campbell, was a regular visitor to the site and maintained his own Blog.  His first entry was in April 2006 and his last was in February 2008, when he basically stopped showing up on the forum.  I believe that his Blog and the Transform Yourself in 2007where designed as an adjunct to the writing of the book and preparing the way for its launch. I have no problem with that. There is a lot of good information on Adam’s Blog and links to other Blogs and sites. If you are really interested in exploring the underpinnings of this diet, check them out.  Also, to see some of the progress that various guys have made, check their pictures out at Transform Yourself.

By February 2008, my weight loss was probably at the 70 pounds or more level.  I really should have kept a better log of where I was at.  Ah well – hindsight is 20/20.  We were on vacation in Florida.  My sister-in-law (wife’s sister) was there as well.   Once I got there, I found a gym to sign up with and every morning left the house before anyone else woke.   I was adhering to the Low Carb Plan A Diet. 

My sister-in-law is a person who follows the Low Fat concepts and is impressed by guys with big guns and defined muscles.  She married a guy who fits that picture.   Her style of eating was high carbs, low protein and fat.  Except when she would finish a half gallon of Ben & Jerry’s in two days.   She could not believe what I was eating – although she finally admitted that all my effort was resulting in some muscle definition.

I had returned from the gym and was eating breakfast.  We were chatting over coffee about my diet and I said that when we returned from vacation, I would go on Plan B and take back some Carbs.  I then explained that I would add approximately 20-30 grams of carbs to both my pre and post workout shakes.  That was it.  She started laughing and did not stop for an hour or more.  The thought of my being excited about adding “carbs” to my work out shakes was too much for her to handle.

When we got back from Florida, I went on Plan B.  That was an experiment all its own.
