Hi guys,

this is my first post of what hopefully will be many.

My goals are to cut down my body fat % while maintaining muscle mass. Also, a 6 pack by Jan 1.

Here is my diet and bio.

Height: 6'2'' Current Weight: 175lbs Body Fat%: about 13-15% (don't really know)


My diet: about 1500-1900 calories eaten daily. (over 4-5 spaced meals)
Protein: 140-175 grams
Fat: under 30 grams
Carbs: make up the rest

Supplements: Whey, Vitamins, SSL 2 Hardcore (thermogenic, 2 pills a day, 200mg caffeine per pill)

I also workout 3 times a week (lift plus 30min. on elliptical) and play sports another 2 days a week.

thanks,

Keep the protein close to 175 grams. I'd also up the fat, no reason to keep it so low, bump it up to about 20% of your daily cals.

How many pounds are you currently losing a week?

why would I bump fat? I rather have my body burn the fat I have already?

I lose about a pound a week.

thanks

if your only goal is a 6pack then keep doing what you're doing.

if you want to keep what little muscle mass you have (175 is not very much for someone your height) then bump the fat, drop the carbs probably, do HIIT.

dietary fat does not necessarily equal body fat. do a search

You want to keep fats around .5g/lb to maintain healthy hormone and body function. Plus fat makes you feel full. 1500-1900 is quiet the range. Try to get it narrower then that. Keep protein up around 1g/lb or more. As long as you eat less calories then maintence then you will lose weight.
