You're 210 with those measurements? i would think ur closer to about 190.. Im around 197 right now, and my measurements are:

Age: 18
Height: 6'2
Arms: 17.75"
Chest: 49"
Waist: 33"
Neck: 17"

Mind you my legs are small, and most of my mass is situated in my upperbody.

how long have you been training for gino?

02-17-2002, 11:26 AM
On and off since I was 15... I have big genetics though, and I spent quite a long time over weight, around 240lbs... I've just recently leaned out, and im trying to get in good shape for the summer time.

wots your carb,protein,calorie and fat daily intake Gino cos cos although your measurments are bigger than mine we r roughly the same weight etc...

If you are bulking now haven't you found your maintainance level for calories? If you know the number of cals the next step is to see how you can divide it up. If you are looking for rapid weight loss maybe trying a ketogenic diet is for you. If you'd rather conserve most of the muscle you gained bulking maybe an isocaloric diet is best. I mean only you know what kind of diet you will stick to. If you have some ideas post them and we can tinker around with it...but just recommending a diet without knowing you isn't the best route.

ok Elpietro i will do, i was just wondering how many calories i should be giving myself daily and protein etc.. taking into consideration my weight,height. I would like to get down to 195lbs whilst trying to retain the muscle i have built

I don't have an exact number of calories, or protein/carbs/fats... But i can tell you that i take in around 150 - 200G of protein a day, maybe around 75G of Carbs a day, and roughly 35G of fats a day. I am eating enough that I am putting on mass, while taking away the excess fat that I have left.

I advise you to eat 1.7/2.0 gr of proteins per 1 kilo of bodyweight or better per 1 kilo of bodymass.
If you want to cut I reccommend you to lower the quote of charboidrate at a level of about 70/90 gr per day.
If you lower the quantity of charboidrates you must raise the percentage of lipides,because they'll be your second source of energy because the diet lacks of charboidrates.
Take at least 1 gr of charboidrati per kilo.I reccommend you to eat unsaturated fat and not saturated fat.
You can find unsaturated fat in olive oil and in another oils like soya oils and peanuts oil. You can find that type of fats in dried fruit (monoinsaturated fat in this case) like peanuts,nuts etc...

Eat a high carbohydrate breakfast.(medium protein,low fat)

Then,reduce the amount of carbs for the rest of the day.

The postworkout meal should consist of some carbs and proteins.

Spread your fat intake in the 3-4 meals after breakfast and stick to fish oils,flax seed oil,olive oil,avocados,peanuts,almonds and some mayonnaise as well.

Eat some protein with all the meals but remember that high amounts of protein are a waste of money.

Don't consume less than 20-25 grams of fiber per day.
Perform short,daily,intense workouts and do intervals instead of
other aerobic activities.
