StickerGiant Takes the Fresh Lean Challenge

Fresh Lean Champ!

Eleven StickerGiant employees recently took up the challenge to see how much weight could be lost over a ten week period. To sweeten the deal, a cash prize was offered to be the person with the highest percentage of weight loss from start to finish.

Over the course of that time, the participants collectively lost a total of 107 pounds, with four folks losing ten pounds a piece. Super cool!

So how did we do it?

"We biked, we ellipticalled, we treadmilled, we walked, we hiked, we ran, we lifted weights, and we rowed," explained Amy. "We drank more water, we watched what we ate, and we transformed our thoughts."

All-in-all, the Magnificent Eleven logged more than "900 hours of sweat and watching calories."

Mini-challenges included a 1.5 mile jog, a temptation breakfast and nutrition questions, and a grueling slate of resistance tests (wall sits, planks, lateral arm raises).

Tom took the top spot, losing a whopping 12.47% of his starting body weight. He's on his way to a total personal weight loss of 100 pounds.

Winner, Winner, (lean) Chicken Dinner!

"The challenge raised our energy, struck up some friendly competition and simply got us moving!" said Amy. "Of course I'd do it again, it ended up being a lot more fun than I thought it would".

The Drunk Diet

The Drunk Diet

The Drunk Diet

Here is a thing to anticipate. A thing to behold. A book, in fact, but a lifestyle in practice. It's the Drunk Diet, by Lüc Carl, a genuine New York City bartender, bar manager, bon vivant and rail-thin rocker. He was even (allegedly) romantically linked with Lady Gaga. But he wasn't always that way. This book is the chronicle of a year in his life, a magical year wherein he loses 40 pounds and keeps drinking like a fish the entire time. Well, maybe 'magical' isn't the word. Maybe 'crr-razy' is the word. But hey, proof is in the pudding, as your grandma probably says, and he looks great. Some more from his website:

Not your ordinary Diet book, The Drunk Diet is simply a year in the life of author Lüc Carl. His memoirs of a year in which he went from being an out of shape, bloated asshole, to the sexiest, most delightful man on the planet.

You will not find any "do this, don’t do that" in The Drunk Diet. This is simply one ordinary rock n roller’s story, filled with awe-inspiring, hilarious accounts of his day to day life.

After reading countless books and being told time after time that it’s impossible to lose weight while drinking alcohol heavily, Lüc Carl decided to take matters into his own hands. Join him on his journey to lose 40 pounds, without giving up his principles of being a hard drinking party maker.
