One hour later- 12 egg whites, 2 whole eggs, bowl of salad. Meal 3- 14oz. chicken breast, vegetables, 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter. Meal 4- 2 cans tuna w/salad+tbsp natural peanut butter. Meal 5- protein bar. Meal 6- carb free protein shake+tbsp flaxseed oil, 5g glut., tsp colostrum.

Maybe hes bragging.:confused:

Well, how much farther are you going to go?

How much dieting do you have left?

sorry, didn't realize my post was unfinished, body fat currently low, however still stubborn layer of fat around middle, any advice to what else I could do? Cardio 3-5 times/week, 20-30 min/session

Lose more fat.

Or you can do a bulk and work them out. I'd say they would show more easily if you strengthen them up and work 'em out.

I had a similar problem . . . .

I gradually INCREASED calories, but left the carbs. low. (25%) and increased the intake of good fats. (50%) Protein was about 1 - 1.25g/lb.

Continued to progress with my lifts like I would with any other day and viola the last little bit of fat around the midsection is just about gone.

Energy is fine, strength is fine.

Currently consuming 3,350 calories daily.

I just started last week, added tbsp flaxseed oil to nighttime shake, 1 tbsp natural peanut butter to each of 3 meals

Does anyone read these posts? If so, a little help would be much appreciated. Now almost 22 weeks. Seeing a little improvement over last 7-10 days, still fat around middle and sides. Hope to hear from somebody.

You've got improvement you said...it's not gonna happen overnight.

now 23 weeks, eat chicken, tuna or turkey w/salad(lettuce, cukes) all day along with protein shakes. Mct oil preworkout, flaxseed oil before bed. Slight improvement last week, no cheat meals for four weeks. Hope bodyfat goes by sept., want to start bulking again.

Sounds like there is progress....but it might not hurt to add a thermogenic too.

just an idea

08-13-2002, 12:06 PM
Take 3 dymetadrine extreme/day

08-13-2002, 12:07 PM
another thought i had - u might want to start doing cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (if that's possible for you)

08-13-2002, 12:14 PM
I'll have to start doing cardio on non-training days, otherwise, not possible

Another question, bodyfat going down(slowly) why do I not look hard or full? Take in 400 g protein/day, creatine, glutamine. Suggestions?

08-14-2002, 08:07 PM
400g protein? That's definetly excessive, how many calories are you cutting on? I'm not positive, but doesn't creatine give you a bloated look? If so perhaps that's why you don't look "hard or full".

08-14-2002, 08:15 PM
does anyone think I should stop the creatine(5g daily)?

08-15-2002, 07:49 AM
no dont stop creatine its your best suppliment! :)
as for a questiona bout fat... how much fat is too little and what are ways to incorporate good fat if not getting enough, i eat less than 30g a day which is really low
