    That's amazing. What's your workout routine? Just proves that hard work pays off.

    Thank you! I did the Keto Diet since May 13th 2018 and worked out 6 days a week with a combination of strength training and cardio for 2 hours each day. Only took in 6 grams of carbs for the until May 31st. Then from June 1st till today I did zero grams of carbs a day. I feel great.

    Man, I follow the Ketogenic Lifestyle as well (due to high A1C and insulin resistance). When I first started Keto, I was doing power lifting and man o man the struggle was real. Due to injuries (because I can be a bit bullheaded at times). I am not doing power lifting any longer (we will see how long that sticks) but doing body building | hypertrophy now. Honestly, not struggling with the training sessions at all!

    Sick gainz, dude!

    I know that you have stated that you earn your living from your body....but might I ask what you do exactly?

    I’m an actor! Prior model so I have experience in constantly adjusting my body, but am not an actor in la! Also studied sport science, kinesiology, biomechanics of the body and sports nutrition!(:

    Kinda what I thought. And, glad that you are not an actor in LA! I used to work in the Entertainment Industry in Beverly Hills....they just chew up people and spit them out. It is brutal.

    Dang! Ha! I worked for AMG (which was run by Michael Ovitz) and that was purchased by The Firm (Jeffrey Kwatnitz). We had the two offices on Wilshire Blvd right up from Rodeo Drive. The 9401 building was so cool.....cool af (for back then....this was some 15 years ago). With what Agency are you? If you do not mind me asking....TOTALLY OFF-TOPIC, people. Sorry.....

    I am just wrapping up my bulk so my results are going from lean to not so lean but just to give people an idea of what they can expect when they bulk.

    So this is about 7 months between left and right photos, 14lbs gained. I think I did ok, but we will see what I really built after I cut.

    @sardelsa I have seen you in the forums for a few years now, and I must say you are definitely very inspiring! Granted this is a couple months old now, you look amazing...Even after a bulk!

    Well, may I ask you just how old you are, then? I am 51....your turn! :-)

    you are only as old as you feel :) im 32 this year but i feel like a 15 year old with my maturity level

    Exactly. For me, age is nothing more than a number. I am 12 in my head! That was when I was innocent and pure! HA! Anyone buying that? I have some swamp land in Arizona for you, too!

    Well, much respect to you for your current progress! The fun is just about to start. Once the newbie gains end (anywhere between three and six months) the pain begins! I was a center fielder and catcher in baseball! I love pain!!!!! Nothing but weakness leaving the body and the mind! Bring it on!!!!

    And, from 45 on (so, for the last six years) life has never been better. So, you have something to look forward to (hopefully).

    Thanks so much! I'm about halfway through my cut now (well at least I think so, I don't know how low I want to go this time). I'll have to update at some point ;)
