Hello all! So since summer is rapidly approaching I decided it would be a good idea to do quick fix diet that isn’t too rigorous like juicing. This week I started the “Military Diet Plan” it is a 3 day diet which is supposed help you lose 10 pounds in 3 days. Obviously everyone’s body works differently but it would be a good thing to try before you have a big event or a pool party or something. I don’t have anything important to go to I just wanted to try it to see how my body would respond. This type of diet shouldn’t be too hard to keep the weight off because you are still consuming solid foods, where juicing is all liquid and once you start eating solids you will definitely gain weight back.
The one thing I am substituting is instead of vanilla ice cream I am eating greek yogurt instead! I am using ezekial bread for toast, its a healthier alternative than wheat toast, its gluten free and won’t raise your blood sugar levels.
Hope you enjoy it. :)

The athlete inside you never dies. He may hide for a while. He may surrender to schedule, responsibility and career-ambition, but he never dies. And when you re-awaken him, he tends to come back with a vengeance.
I played college basketball and when my career ended with a second knee injury in as many years I focused on life after the game. I started my career in sports media, started a family and started getting fat. That’s not who I was and that’s not who I wanted to become.
When you travel the country covering professional sports, it’s a challenge to follow a healthy lifestyle. Schedule-demands, late-night eating and early morning flights provide every excuse you need to surrender. But the athlete inside refuses to allow that.
Along with being a husband and father, I have a very busy schedule between a television and radio sports broadcasting career in New York City. In the City that Never Sleeps, my followers on Twitter know me as the founding member of #TeamNoOneSleeps.
But even on those days when I’m feeling sluggish, a quick, heart-pounding workout sends a rush of endorphins that awaken the body. I am always trying new workouts to keep the routines from becoming, well, routine. I’ve tried everything from P90X to Insanity to Les Mills Pump. And when it comes to cardio, I love to explore alternatives. Some days I’ll go to my local rink and get in a good, hard skate with my son. Other days I’ll grab a basketball and do one of my shooting routines that I used to do in college. It’s workouts like these that don’t even feel like workouts, but burn calories and generate those wonderful endorphins.
I’m 20 years removed from my career as an athlete, but the athlete inside remains alive.
My name is Alan. And I may be over 40, but I’m totally Hard Ninety.
