I started working out around the early nineties, i was around my late teens, was always active and into various sports until i was plagued by injuries, basketball took its toll on my knees, like what i said i was active, no matter what situation in life was in, i was always lifting, pushing or pulling something, i dwelve for a few years in competative shooting, , as usual, lifting was there, then everytime there is a gun ban when there are no competitions, i took to mountain bike, i was a regular in nuvali, bombing the trails twice a week, plus a monthly century ride from pque to tagaytay and back....life was good, again weightlifting was also there, when i stopped doing mtb, i concentrated on being the biggest that i can, at 6ft i came close to 260lbs, , here i am with few childhood friends, familiar faces? Yes i was big, strong? Maybe, but i have one weakness, i was a binge drinker, i wont go home until i was piss drunk, i was a johnny walker guy, neat please(no ice, no chaser)last dec 2015, me and my family was in korea for 2 weeks, what do you do when its cold and snowing? drink soju...and beer, every night, we went back here in there philippines a few days before new year, the usual drinking fanfare happen, jan 1 we came home from a party, i was having a tummy ache, the pain, became so intense, i was vomitting non stop, i was rush to the E.R that night, i was having what they call acute pancreatitis, the one that killed rico yan, when i was at the E.R, i was saying goodbye to my wife, mother and daughter, the acid from my pancreas damaged my kidneys, my creatinine level was 1600( normal was 137), the doctor said dialysis is needed to save my kidneys, i had 4 dialysis session, i was 220lbs when i admitted in the hospital, i balloned to 260lbs because i was not excreting any waste, fecal and urine , i was at death's door and in constant pain, plus all the pain killers(morphine) they were giving me made me see things, i was already talking to shadows that only i can see, after a few bouts of dialysis they started to see improvements, bad news is, i needed to be operated on, i have gall stones as big as chic peas, and my gall baldder was full to the brim, after staying in the hospital for two weeks and a hospital bill amounting to half a million, i was told that i cant lift again, i need to watch what i eat, only a low protein diet, and i need to go back to re schedule my operation, my creatinine was still high, we still had to wait if it goes down or not, i stayed at home for a week, the first time we went out to go to church, i immediately went to chris sports to buy those resistance bands, bought the 5lbs band for girls:) started using them, btw i have a stationary bike at the office which helped a lot, Then some good news came, my creatinine was low enough to merit an operation, when the doctor saw me he said, i see youve been working out again, they took out my gall bladded 2nd week of april 2016, , the doctor said again youre not allowed to lift anything for a month, a day after my operation, i was on the stationary bike, after 5days i was in the gym lifing light weights, heres a pic a few days after the operation here one after a month , i can now do 80lb dumbells for 10-12reps, right now im around 80%, im still recovering, i hope to gain few more pounds, , btw im 6ft 198lb 32inch waist, age 42....thank you lord for giving me another chance, btw did i metion i have a titanium sleeve in my arm, broke it before in a few places, well thats another story.

    Sure, i always have a 3 days worth of white rice in the ref, already mashed together with soy sauce, i just scoop what i need, when i need it,
    This is for a days worth only
    You need:

    8 eggs
    750g of thigh fillet
    1-2 tlbs of vigin coconut oil( you can use chui chao chili for extra flavor)
    3/4 cup of marinated white rice

    Cook the thigh first, use the coconut oil, 5-7mins medium hear, when done, remove juice from the pan, cook the eggs, scambed it, when done remove it and set aside, remember the juices from the chicken fillet? that will be your oil for frying the rice, medium heat, 8-10mins, add the eggs and fillet once the rice is done.. Good for 3 meals.
