A month ago I was about 205lbs at 6'1", about 12% bodyfat, decently muscular... I'm cleaning up/keeping track of my diet (still ate very clean before but didnt keep track of calories) and added cardio...
I'm about 194 now and I need to be down to 165 by the end of MAY. That leaves about 13 weeks... Which makes about 2.3/lbs a week. I wish to retain as much muscle as possible while doing 5 days a week of cardio/weights.
Right now I'm eating between 1500 and 2000 calories a day. Yesterday:
Chicken/Salad/Beans/Brown Rice (Serving for Lunch and a serving for dinner)
Couple whey shakes.
I'm keeping tally with Fitday....
I'm also looking for a supplement like Animal Cuts/ Pak to help with the vitamin aspect, but I'll post on the other forum. Maybe creatine to keep some muscle?
I DO NOT want to go into starvation mode. I know 1500-2000 calories does not seem like a lot. I'm eating probably 40% less in calories as I was before. What do you think? I need 2.3lbs a week!
