That being said, summer's coming up and your boy misses his six pack. I'm a hypocrite. Gain some fat man.

That's one more thing I need to consider: I have been eating a high protein/high carb/low fat diet for the past few months or so. Hunger was bad before on a diet with lower carbs, but I don't think it was as bad as the high carb diet.
