as the title says... no more messing about..

I need to drop some bf, (4% ish) so I gues this is a cutting diet.. I am not going mad though as I have been eating crap for ages and I am assuming that juts back on a clean diet Mon-Sat will help me drop some bf anyway..

I want to drop to anbout 13% and then try and gain again but not at such a fat rate as i did before :D Going down to 3400 cal's is bsaiclly not extreme but with a few cardios i am hoping its enough to drop some bf :) If its not I will drop some more..

Anyway here it goes.. let me know what ya think..

You part horse, or what? :D

3400 calories will probably be a bit high to lose any bodyfat.

I personally would say bugger to the cardio and use my diet to lose the weight. Also I would be on lower calories, no bread, no beef, lower fat and lower carbs.... But that's just me:D

Yeah I think you're proably right....

However I think I have probably been eating 6000 a day for the past few months my diet has been that bad. lol

Anyway, I will see what happens.. If I am staying the same I will lower the carbs some.... I would rather start off high and adjust rather than go too low and feel crappy..

I've tried to use diet only to lose bf without much success.

The problem with diet only is that your metabolism slows to compensate for lower calories.

Cardio not only uses calories while you're doing it (say burn 400-500 per session) but it also boosts your metabolism which you need in order to counteract the slow down from eating less.

Now if I could just get off my a$$ and do some cardio (man, it's sooooo boring ):eek: :) tuttut

06-18-2001, 05:23 PM
Ok, here's what I suggest...

Raise protein, lower carbs. 350 protein and 250 carbs will be good.

Lower fat down to about 70g.

Add carbs in your last two meals, about 25g in each.

The "few days of cardio" will not help much at all, we're looking at an extra 0.2lbs of fat loss per week, literally.

Just some quick thoughts :)

Time + Patience

I think You should lower your carbs and fat a bit. drop the fat down some , and also drop the carbs a bit also, like what cack said. why is your fat so high??? right now I am on like 150 grams of carbs a day, and about 300 grams of protein and probably 40 grams of fat. And I have seen an improvement also, getting leaner and still getting bigger???? weird, but sweet.

Damn you eat a lot of oats! Do you eat them cold? If I don't eat my oatmeal within like 3 minutes of cooking it, it starts to get nasty. What is your secret?

He sucks it up and eats it. Hence he avoids the label "non-progressing wuss". :D

I would stick to your original plan Hulk.
Low carbs works but so does high carbs.
See what works most effectively for you at this time.
You also don't need to ingest that much water.

Diet looks fine ..... eating clean and performing cardio is the best way to drop body fat and get in condition. Still alow yourself a treat once a week.

Yeah guys thanks for your suggestions..,

Last time I ate like this I was eating close to 3900 cal's and although the bf was too high it wasn't going dramatically way up...

So I figured 3400 was an ok decrease not to mention I am benig more active now..

Anyway I want to stick with this and evaluate my results and then lower carbs and fat appropiately...

Lat : I just eat em cold... Just throw on some milk and eat em up.. I try and use as little milk as possible.. This is really a treat for me as I used to eat them raw :eek:

Thanks for everyones suggestions :)

You don't cook em??

You used to eat them raw?? Weirdo tuttut

06-19-2001, 08:09 PM
Yah, I thought ronan was a weirdo the first time i watched him eat his oats raw with a bit of water on them but then I discovered A) they don't taste all too bad and B) it's a helluva lot quicker and easier!

06-20-2001, 02:08 PM
Everyone should try it.....it really is good. It is a very quick way to get some carbs. Just make sure u got water handy.....your mouth gets really dry.

yo hulk what up! Is that your pic there?

I would suggest a couple things. Drop the bananas post workout for some high glucose containing foods. You carbs are spread throughout the day. Why not concentrate them the two times of the day you really need them, the morning and post workout. THis will help to minimize lipogenic processes. Also, i wouldn't change protein to much but adjust carbs to change your cals first, then change fat amounts when carbs become uncomfortably low
