  • 3 tablespoons granulated or light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

About FitFreek202

Hi, thanks for stopping by at my website. This is my journey to achieve 202 pounds of lean body mass and 15% Body Fat. Let me explain. Weighing yourself with traditional scales is very important, but you also need to measure your body fat as well. You could go to the gym and weigh yourself before and after a long run. The second weigh in, you may well have lost two pounds ā€“ that is water from sweat, not body fat. So, my goal is to be 202 pounds LBM and 36 pounds of fat ā€“ a total of 238 pounds. When iā€™m there, my goal is to be 202 pounds LBM and 22 pounds of fat ā€“ a total of 224 pounds. This blog will chart my progress.
