yeah i do a lot of the workouts they suggest already along with my distance running. I need to keep at the running stuff cuz I have some 5k and 8k races coming up this spring so I need to be in shape for those at the same time.
I'm being as strict as I can on the carbs other than cereal for breakfast. And the only sugar I'm using is a spoon full on a grapefruit every day - the occasional scoop of low sugar ice cream to add to my protein shakes so they don't taste like... well protein shakes. Everything else has been fruit, veggie, meat/chicken/fish or some dairy like a string cheese or cup of milk with the protein.
