Hi all, new member here. I have kind of reached a point where I am not sure what to do next.
About 4 months ago I weighed 270lbs. I purchased the Micheal Thurmonds 6 week body makeover program (I know some people say this progam is BS, but it sounded right to me).
I now weigh 224lbs.
I have always been a big guy, but didnt really consider myself overweight until after I got married and got a desk job. I am 6'0 with a large frame. I have also always been considered "strong", I am the guy everyone calls when someone needs something moved or someone has a blowhard friend that needs beat in arm wrestling. lol
Anyways, now that I have reached this point, I have for the time being went of the body makeover diet and just eating sensabily and I have maintained the same weight for the past month (well, actually lost 4 more lbs).
Ideally, I would like to weigh about 200lbs. Thats what I weighed in High school, but I had significantly higher muscle mass back then.
I would like to get back to that state. I feel if I continue to loose weight the way I have been, I will be skinnier, but I will no longer be very strong. So I am considering going to a higher protien diet and hitting the weights hard. Will I continue to loose weight by doing this while building additional muscle mass? What is the best weight for me to reach my new goal? I am totally lost and not sure what to do. Any help would be greatly apprieciated. Thanks!
(sorry for the long post!)
