To see all my before and after pics go to
2018 has been an amazing year. This time last year I was in a rut. I knew too much information but had no idea how to convert it into practicality. I went back to Rochester NY were I grew up, in January to face my demons. I did and it took a lot out of me. It took about 2 months to recover from that trip. The emotional and physical are connected. but then as the spring came I decided that it was time to make a real change and figure out how to get actually healthy. I started by dumping everything I knew onto what be came
The Archive on this site. i then decided that I wanted to see how much progress I could make if I really tried for 6 months. So I took the above picture was taken at the beginning of May. I didn't take a before picture at first as I was so ashamed of how I looked but as soon as I did and saw my face I knew things had to change.
I started bu coming up with an equation for how much to eat that would allow me to loose fat but maintain strength by rotating days. Having a Day 1 High Carb low fat that I would lift on and a Day 2 that would be high fat for recovery. I thought to myself how frustrating it was to try and do the math to figure the numbers and how someone should make a calculator to do it.
This became www.AlexanderCalculator.com
Which I am very proud to have available to everyone who wants to start a weight loss journey but doesn't know where.
I then applied these numbers to a 24 hour clock and then plugged that into a week and then a month. This became wwwAlexanderProtocol.com
A site ( that may some day be fully automated) but shows how
Calories, Macros, Micro Nutrients, Exercise & Time all matter and how to fit them all together synergistic to accomplish goals. I've been working with other and helping them to see how all these things fit together too.
This all took a lot of trial and error but the weight started coming off. I thought maybe I would get to 195 from 212 but the weight just kept coming off. this external change was simply an indicator of internal change as people, and things in my life seems ed to be falling off as well. When people see you get healthier and happier it shows you whether they are real friends or not. I amazed at how much I have heard your too smart or too skinny (normally from people that I think need to learn more or loose weight)
I finished the 6 months on DEC 1 of 2018 and am now doing some new protocols that can be found Rob On The Protocol
I am so excited to see what 2019 brings.
I plan on continuing to do this blog build the site and keep learning.
Happy New Year - Do Something Different in 2019
