I am 70 and hunted last year without any problems at all at 10,000. In 2005 after I had a heart attack my cardiologist gave me very simple advice that I still follow and has held up over time.

Eat balanced single helping meals. Solid carbs in morning, tons of fruit, whole grain bread at lunch, minimize processed food, lean meat vegetables at night. Nothing after 6:30PM except for water. One thing that is easily overlooked is weigh yourself every morning before eating. Doc believed this little task sets your mindset for the day for motivation and provide mental reward as you drop weight. It worked for me.

I was walking 9-11 miles every other day prior to hunt. Hydrate well during any exercise. Get to altitude at least 3 days prior to hunt to allow full acclimation before you actually on are the hunt clock. I know its hard to add in extra altitude time prep but your hunt will go much smoother if you can.

Sometimes we can over think a simple solution like we all know what is healthy to eat; just need the mental fortitude and motivation to change your health life style. Hey, still get DQ Blizzard once in a great while as reward treat. Now that is good for mental health too!

Diet is certainly very important, but also do not forget about special supplements, because it is very difficult to lose weight on your own. I weighed about 120 kilograms two months ago and I was able to lose only 20 kilograms on my own, and in order to lose weight further I had to use supplements and I’m even glad that I learned about SARMs. This is a really cool supplement that allows you to lose weight very quickly. I have been using it for two months and I was just happy that I was finally able to lose weight and change my body. If I hadn't read the review on stoneathleticmedicine.com, I would never have dared to use this supplement!
Losing weight isnt hard it just takes discipline. Removing processed carbs/sugar, fast and rest stop food, and adding a gallon of water a day to your diet, gurantee you'll drop weight. Using supplements like sarms(not clinically tested/fda approved) only available as research chemicals, they're not for everyone. Get bloodwork done. If you're dieting and exercising without weight loss, chances are your t3/t4 levels are low and your metabolism is down regulated big time. Doctors/Endos can help with that. I have coached several stage athletes, some natural some assisted. Dieting slowly and knowing your accurate daily calorie expenditure, and tapering it down slowly till you get to where you want to be. Too fast a cut and weight loss stalls and your metabolism slows down. There's a lot of science into this, but the info is all out there if you know where to look.
