"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Starting Living Longer Stronger

Hello, I am 45 and just read Living Longer Stronger. I have a few questions. 1. Can I start the lifting routine before the dieting? If I wait on the diet until after the holidays and want to start the strength element now, should I make any adjustments? 2. I am 6'4" with a larger frame. Should I still reduce to 1500 calories, or should I increase some? Thanks. I am looking forward to the results. Mark

Interested in following this. I'm 35 but I've heard the book is good and can apply to any age. I'm no expert but my advice would be: if you don't think you have the discipline to stick to the eating program till after the holidays but can adhere to the training aspect immediately id go for it. It's never a bad idea to train, even if the current diet is sub par. Good luck and keep us posted!!

Of course you can start the lifting part and get in tune with where your weights should be.

Do your normal thing with holiday eating, with maybe just a bit more of an eye on moderation than usual.

Then hit that diet part hard starting Jan 2nd!

Best,
Scott

I would also add, if you're not a big water drinker right now, easing in to it over the next few weeks would help you have fewer shocks come January 2 when you start.

Thanks all. That is the path that I am going to head down. I also have a question regarding the calories. Not that I want to cheat the diet, but I have done low calorie before and had adjustments for my size. At 6'4" with a larger frame, is 1500 still the right number? Thanks again for your help and feedback.

Sorry, one last item. Is there any additional guidance, for example calorie limits for meals, if my wife wants to do it as well?
