  • He needs to increase his fats
    • Avocado, eggs
  • Increase protein and workouts 
  • He has to balance protein intake before during and after workout to make it have an effect 
  • Insulin pump has to go into fat areas
    • He has trouble finding them - sometimes has to give his body a break
    • Prefers pump over injections 
  • Put on three or four lasting pounds in a couple of weeks
    • Increase in protein made a big difference
