THE QATSPY® Quapaw Aviation Tactical Sportswear Performance Company OUTFITTERS

This was taken on August 12, 2022 after we did a photoshoot for our Quapaw Aviation Tactical Sportswear Collection and our TOP GUN: Maverick Collection. I did an AB Challenge photograph that will appear in my book THE DELPHI DIET & FITNESS SYSTEM on KINDLE. I’m 65 years old leaning up against my INDIAN Scout Bobber 60 Motorcycle. I dropped not only weight but years off my appearance following my diet and fitness program.

Age-Defying-Calorie-Burning Juggernaut Diet– Drop not only Weight, Inches, Blood Pressure, Glucose Levels, but also Drop Years off as well

I used my chemical engineering background to drop approximately 54- pounds and 8.25- inches off my waistline just after I retired at age 57 in June of 2015. Obviously, I was doing this for my health and fitness as I was approaching my late 50’s. I just had a hip replacement surgery in October of 2014 where I could get back on a diet and work out in my gym once again.

I had gained over 42- pounds due to my hip pain that made it impossible to move, much less exercise. I had a similar hip condition to what both Prince and Tom Petty had. I was facing the same issues that they dealt with having limited mobility and extreme pain that I experience that even exceeded even my pain level tolerance.

I was getting to a point where even sleeping was becoming an issue due to the pain approaching 10 on an ongoing basis. Both Prince and Tom Petty died due to pain killers that they were taking to deal with their pain. In Tom Petty’s case it was fentanyl that is 100 times more powerful than Morphine. My issue was due to a rare disease called Perthes. One small little commit about the pain from Perthes, it hurts like hell!

Just a short fact on Prince. Someone asked Eric Clapton how it felt to be the best Electric Guitarist in the World? Eric Clapton replied- “I don’t know, you are going to have to ask Prince”.


Getting Out of Pain Allows You to Focus on Your Health and Fitness

When you are over the constant pain, you can start focusing on your health, fitness, and enjoy your life once again. I used my six week recovery time during November and December of 2014 to figure out a way that I could use Nutrition Labels to determine foods that I could eat and allowed my body to efficiently metabolize my food instead of storing it as fat.

Here’s an example of how the Heath Index Factor Works. If you look at Sweet Potato and Idaho Potato Nutrition Labels and compare sugar content of both, you would come away thinking Idaho Potato is a healthier choice. But you would be wrong. Compare the two Health Indexes of the Sweet Potato to the Idaho Potato:

NOTE: As any dietitian will tell you that Sweet Potatoes and Pinto Beans are consider the perfect foods for weight control and for overall health.

In other words, I wanted my body to become a calorie-burning juggernaut where I could lose weight and inches at a healthy rate of a quart-of-a-inch per week, or 1.5 pounds per week. I use Analytics to take certain components from the Nutrition Labels off foods labels that are considered perfect foods and compare those foods labels from that which are considered junk food and develop a Health Index factor, as noted above, what I call bookends.

My objective was to keep my meal items at or below a Health Index factor (HI) of 3.25 based on the Analytics that I developed for WHAT I should eat. I had no idea how effective this diet program was going to be when I started it and measured my results daily starting on day-one on November 28, 2014. (See my Waistline Chart later in this article).

Alternative Reasons for Losing Pounds and Inches

I had an alternative reason for losing weight and inches off my waistline, I was retiring in June of 2015 at age of 57 to start my sportswear business. I’m an authorized dealer for US WINGS a manufacturer of U.S. Military issue Flight Jackets. I was planning on modeling these flight jackets for my promotionals. Below, I’m shown the last time that I flew aerial patrol in May of 2015 on the tarmac with our 206-D Bell Jet Ranger where I’m wearing our US WINGS A-2 Leather Flight Jacket.

This was taken on May 14, 2015, when I flew my last aerial patrol in our 206-D Bell Jet Ranger before I retired in June of 2015. I exceeded my weight lost little over an inch in my waistline down to 30.80 inches. I wearing my US WINGS A-2 Leather Flight Jacket that we supply to the U.S. Military. These are in my Online Store.

If you want to eye test your health and fitness status, just try stepping in front of the camera lens that offers you one of the most critical critiques of your conditioning. What was even more significant was that I was doing this at age 57 then and still model our sportswear at age 65. In the feature image, below, I’m 65 years old, 8- years after starting my HI diet program.

This was taken on August 12, 2022 promoting both our Quapaw Aviation Sportswear Collection and our TOP GUN: Maverick Collection. I’m 65 years old and still enjoy modeling with a young lady that works with us. She actually love modeling more than I do.


Results are in the Numbers, You Can’t Argue Facts

The three (3) critical objectives to establish even before you start your diet program is- (1) What your success will look like afterwards, (2) Establishing metrics to measure your progress, and (3) Set a reasonable expected date to achieve your goal. If you can’t measure it, you certainly can’t obtain it. In my case, my objective was to lose 45- pounds starting on Friday, November 28, 2014. I actually exceeded my expectation by losing 52- pounds and losing down to 29.50- inch waistline, refer to my Waistline Chart, below.

My objective date that I established was based on taking 45- pounds and dividing that by 1.5- pounds of weight lost per week  (45/1.5= 30 weeks) or 210- days to lose 5.75- inches, or from 37.75- inches down to a 32- inch waist. So I set June 26, 2015 as the date to lose my 45- pounds and 5.75- inches in my waist by following my HI factor DIET system. The true test of a diet isn’t just losing the weight; but actually keeping the weight off over the long-run, 8-years NOW!

A healthy waistline is just as important to reach as a healthy weight for your health and fitness. A healthy waistline is based on taking your height (in inches) and dividing by 2. My height is 66/2= 33- inches. Below, is my actual Waistline Chart that I kept for those 210 day and beyond, that I still keep up-to-date:

This is my actual Waistline Chart that I added to my AB Challenge Photo that we did in May 12, 2022 right after we did a photoshoot for our TOP GUN: Maverick Collection.

Our TOP GUN: Maverick Collection

On June 15, 2015 my waistline was 30.25- inches, I actually exceeded my objective by 1.75- inches. As of this morning (31Aug2022), my waistline was 29.50- inches and my weight lost was 54- pounds. I focus more on my waistline rather than my weight for two reasons. ONE– In modeling the waistline is the most critical for your clothes to look and feel good on you and in the photoshoots. SECOND– I have a strength and conditioning program where I was adding muscle mass. Below, is a photo of me in my gym working out on a boxing bag that a fellow photographer took for an article that she was writing.

This was a photograph a fellow photographer took for an article that she was writing and needed a photo of a guy working out with a boxing bag. This was taken in my gym on July 02, 2022 on a early Saturday morning.


The really turbocharger to my diet wasn’t just WHAT I ate, but more important WHEN I ate. I don’t eat anything before 9 a.m. or after 6 p.m. base on our natural Circadian Rhythms. If you want to lose the weight stay within this time frame to eat your meals.

I Dropped Something Totally Unexpected, I Dropped Years

After three months into my HI Diet Program, I dropped something that was totally unexpected, I dropped years off my appearance of my skin that was based just as much on WHEN I ate as it was WHAT I ate, but I didn’t realize the WHY. It wasn’t until I was listening to the John Tesh Show, Intelligence for You Life, that I found out why on May 11, 2022. John Tesh read the research paper on Not eating past 6 p.m. This gives your body the natural ability for it to repair and rejuvenate its biggest organ, your skin.

I have also dropped the three key indicators that most diet companies don’t include in their advertisements- I dropped Blood Pressure at age 65 down to 110/67 with pulse 67. My NON-FASTING Glucose of 110, and my combined Cholesterol is 185. I don’t take any prescribed medication of any type or kind at age 65.

I check my blood pressure every day and I check the other vitals every quarter.■

I call my HI- Diet The DELPHI DIET & FITNESS System that I wrote a book on to help others to not only drop weight and inches but years off their appearance. My book is on KINDLE for readers to achieve their best health and fitness success that I have achieved, below:
