    My Overall Weightloss Plan

    I just want to confirm that this should work:

    I weigh 307 lbs. I want to be down to 210 or 215 or *somewhere* around that area.

    I also want to be ripped - I am still trying to find someone on here who is 6'5 so I can determine what my outcome should be like.


    My weightloss plan is very basic:
    -strength training
    -little cardio (HIIT)
    -reduced calorie diet


    Given this, is it possible to loose fat and, when I'm done, be very muscular?


    Do I have an advantage over people who are already skinny (with regards to ability to put on muscle faster)?

    Thanks

    I am 6'5" and currently weigh 290lbs. I am on a cut, with my goal being around 250. IMHO I think that 215 would be too little weight for you. I don't know if you have a big frame or not, but I think I would look terrible at 215.

    I was 220 lbs as a freshman in highschool, at 6'4" and I was skinny.

    You plan looks good, similar to mine, I am doing HIIT cardio twice a week. Be careful about reducing your calories too much, not good. What are you currently taking in?

    It is possible, with a controlled weight loss porgram to retain muscle mass, but not if you drop too fast, you'll also lose muscle.
    I don't think that 215lbs @6'5" you will be "very muscular", but you would be lean.

    If your goal is to loose all that weight then I would perform cardio 4 times a week. and build your weight training around your cardio. This should keep your metabolism on a constant high, add this to a clean diet and you should be well on your way.
    I also think 215 is probably to light for you. I am 205 but only 6 feet.

    Bah - the only person I found that is
    6'5 is GetPsycho.

    And the pics he has aren't too great (in quality - he's pretty ripped).

    Anyone have more?

    I want to be pretty much like GetPsycho, but leaner. I am not here to be a world champion or anything.

    Just another tall guy's perspective:

    My BF was measured at university last fall as 9.4 using the calipers and 13.1 using BI. At the time I believe I weighed 185. Keep in mind, my body composition is really pretty average. Can't imagine gaining 30 pounds of muscle especially when I've still got like 10 lbs of flab I could get rid of.

    I'm 6'4". For me, 220 would be on the order of gaining 40 pounds of pure muscle. I think I'd look pretty scary since I don't really think I'm that scrawny as it is now.

    Then again, I suppose scrawniness is in the eye of the beholder.

    I suppose what I really want to know is weather a bunch of cardio + a bunch of weightlifting + good eating will work better (and hopefully at the same speed as) a keto diet.

    Is it reasonable to loose weight and gain muscle at fast speed?

    I think that if you haven't seriously weight trained before, you will find yourself gaining muscle WHILE losing fat in the beginning. I don't know if you will want to bother with a keto diet because carbs are VERY helpful in building muscle. Just keep your calories a little below maintenance, do your running, and refeed one day every week to keep the metabolism at "white-hot." I'm guessing it would be about 3600 calories.

    I've saidn this before, but good luck!
